Synopsis 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 pursue a fully human life has become the thread from which the fate 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?
Children's Book Review Breaking Dawn, the fourth and last volume of the twilight saga, is the longest as well as the most surprising in the series. Whereas Eclipse, the third volume, didnít really seem to add to the story, I thought Breaking Dawn was captivating. Maybe Stephanie Meyer has matured as a writer, because the plot was great. I was pretty sure I knew the direction things were headed with Bella, (she marries Edward, joins the vampire world and they live happily ever after) but instead the things that happened took me completely by surprise.
What I thought:
This book has a great way of throwing you off balance by something you had never dreamt would happen, then making you realize that things were always meant to be this way and that the pieces finally fit together. This book was also refreshing with a lot of new feelings involved that made the characters a lot more interesting.
I would recommend this book for readers aged approximately 12-16. Itís not really necessary to read the first three books first, but this oneís more fun if you understand the inside jokes. This is the kind of book that you read without putting it down, I really enjoyed it! Book Reviewed by: Welmoed van Ens, 15 yrs old
