Reader reviewed by Jamie Lee Tomas

Breaking Dawn is the last book of the ever-loved Twilight series. We join Bella and Edward as they take their journey down the aisle. During the reception, Jacob shows up to wish Bella the best, but when he catches wind of their plans to have an actual honeymoon, all werewolf breaks loose. On that bad note, Edward and Bella head off to their honeymoon, where they end up with a plus one. Unsure of how it happened, and not sure what havoc it will cause, the newlyweds jet home to Dr. Carlisle. When the Volturi catch wind of what they presume to be an immortal child, the Cullens must rally the their friends and allies to save their newest edition and are in for the fight of their lives...

Or not. This story builds up, but is afraid to "go there". The whole story is built around getting ready for a life changing fight that never happens. It was disappointing to read through a 700-something page book, only to be in exactly the same place I was when I started. It was not a satisfying end, and it left too many open ties.
