The paranormal love story that has taken the international literary stage by storm bumbles to an unsatisfying conclusion in the highly anticipated fourth book, BREAKING DAWN. Bellas wedding to her immortal vampire lover, Edward, marks the end of her first life and the beginning of the rest of her life. Bella has made her decision to become a vampire in order to live by Edwards side as his equal, but its not so easy as one two three. For starters, it means giving up the human family she loves and doesnt want to hurt. Then, theres also Jacob, her werewolf best friend, who cant bear to see his beloved Bella turned into one of those&bloodsuckers. And finally, Bella realizes theres a few things she still wants to do that involve her remaining a human a little while longer.
But a shockingly unexpected event turns all of their worlds upside down. Once again, Jacob must suppress his inborn dislike of the vampires and aid the Cullens in protecting Bella. Edward promises to himself over and over again that he will never hurt Bella, and yet his love for her puts her in mortal danger yet again. But when a new life binds all of them together in an unbreakable circle of love, they will do anything to save one another with the impending Volturi threat&even if it means they all end up dead.
Its hard to say much about the plot without giving too much away, but while BREAKING DAWN has a few intriguing twists, there are a few that seem a bit TOO farfetched, especially the letdown ending. I have mixed feelings about this being an adequate last book for this phenomenal series because it still leaves so much untold. Will Stephenie Meyer release more books explaining what happens to the characters? She should.
