What an Eventful Few Months

Reader reviewed by Amy

Breaking Dawn is the final book in the Twilight Saga.  Breaking Dawn is broken up into three different books, with one and three being told from Bellas perspective and then the second book is told from Jacobs perspective.  The book opens with a few days before Edward and Bellas wedding.  Bella is upset that she hasnt seen Jacob in a long time because he has remained in his wolf form and is in Northern Canada.  When Bella returns home from getting gas she finds Alice finishing up measuring her dad for his tuxedo, only to find its her turn to get measured for her wedding dress.  All Bella can think about is Edward and how nice it will the wedding and honeymoon will be.


            For the honeymoon, Edward takes Bella to a secluded island, called Isle Esme, of the coast of Brazil., which was a present from Carlisle.  Edward and Bella make love for the first time but they argue because Edwards passion leaves dark bruises on Bellas body.  Bella soon finds herself constantly hungry and sick and realizes shes pregnant.  They cut honeymoon short and rush back to the Cullen mansion.


            Book two, which is from Jacobs perspective, is about when he finds about how Bella  contracted a rare disease while in South Africa.  He rushes to the Cullen household to find out that this is not true and the childs rapid growth is hurting and endangering Bellas health.  Tensions run high during the time of the pregnancy, but Edward delivers the baby girl and Jacob looks into the Renesmees eyes and imprints on her.


When the book returns to Bellas perspective again, she is experiencing the painful transformation from human to vampire.  Edward did this shortly after her giving birth to Renesmee because she is half vampire.  Bella is able to demonstrate self-control both while seeing her daughter and while hunting which is very rare for newborn vampires.  Before Bella and Edward go hunting for the first time, Alice shows Bella her reflection.  Bella sees herself as a beautiful woman with flawless skin. She is graceful, strong and fast.  Renesmee is growing at an amazing rate so she looks older than her calendar age. Bella learns of Renesmee's gift - the ability to communicate by sending images to people's minds through touch.


Finally, the Volturi pay a visit to the Cullens thinking that Renesmee is an immortal child, but shes not.  Shes half vampire and half human.  In the past immortal children had caused mass destruction and the past.  Bella also makes use of her gift which is mind-privacy she is able to shield others from other vampires powers. 


After all the chaos, Bella and Edward return to their cottage and put Renesmee to bed.  Bella places her hands on Edward's cheeks and tries to push away her shield.  She has been secretly practicing for this moment. She thinks of all of her special memories that she wants to share with Edward. He is finally able to see for the first time just how deeply she has always loved him.
