Breaking Dawn – Stephenie Meyer

Atom, An imprint of Little Brown  ISBN978-1-905654-29-1

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 for 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 seem ready to heal and knit together, could they be destroyed… forever?

The last book in the series, one that I resisted reading – and finishing – because then the story would end.  But I did read it.  And I enjoyed it.

This story focuses on Bella’s wedding and her decision to put off being an immortal for a little while, until she settles into the university, but things go awry when she becomes pregnant.

The birth of the half mortal half immortal baby threatens the wolf clans who clamber to annihilate Bella and the baby, except Jacob goes against the leaders commands, and instead splits off and goes in search of Bella to protect her.

 

I felt this story was rushed, and could have easily been split into two stories, but I have to admit that I have fallen under the spell of Stephenie Meyer and I did enjoy the story, the final conclusion.  There is definitely scope for further stories, so don’t write this one off as being finished – just yet.

One thought on “Breaking Dawn – Stephenie Meyer

  1. Exactly my sentiments: torn between two men. Isn’t it a shame we can only have one? Imagine a reversal of Islamic tradition, whereby we, the women, could marry FOUR men. Problem solved.
