Summary: “When you loved the one who was killing you, it left you no options. How could you run, how could you fight, when doing so would hurt that beloved one? If your life was all you had to give, how could you not give it? If it was someone you truly loved? To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both fantasy and nightmare woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan. Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to werewolf Jacob Black, she has endured a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife to reach the ultimate turning point. Her imminent choice to either join the dark but seductive world of immortals or to pursue a fully human life has become the thread from which the fates of two tribes hangs. Now that Bella has made her decision, a startling chain of unprecedented events is about to unfold with potentially devastating and unfathomable, consequences. Just when the frayed strands of Bella’s life – first discovered in Twilight, then scattered and torn in New Moon and Eclipse – seem ready to heal and knit together, could they be destroyed… forever?” (Summary found on Goodreads).
Breaking Dawn is the final book in the Twilight Saga and I enjoyed it very much. Stephanie Meyer’s writing has grown and I found that the grammar was not as bad as it was in the first books. The romance in the book was really high and I don’t think it is appropriate for anyone under the age of 13. I wish Meyer had toned the romance down a bit, it was too much in my opinion. The violence was a tad higher and there was one fairly bloody scene. I enjoyed the ending to the series, but I still feel as though it was missing something. I could not put this book down even though it was slower than the previous novels and I applaud Meyer for hooking her readers in. I recommend this finale to anyone who has read the series or loves romance novels.
