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?

<_st13a_personname _w3a_st="on">
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, a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife have led her to the ultimate turning point. Her imminent choice to either join the dark but seductive world of immortals or to pursue a fully human life has become the thread from which the fates 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 inTwilight, then scattered and torn inNew MoonandEclipse-seem ready to heal and knit together, could they be destroyed... forever?

The astonishing, breathlessly anticipated conclusion to the Twilight Saga,Breaking Dawnilluminates the secrets and mysteries of this spellbinding romantic epic that has entranced millions.
Stephenie Meyer is the author of the #1 bestselling Twilight Saga andThe Host. She graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in English literature, and she lives with her husband and three young sons in Arizona.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A surprising finale - Vampires, Take 4 A bit of a break from the issues of the previous stories, but you'll want to stay along for the ride. The love story comes to a sweeping conclusion that answers all your questions. Despite some of the stories lines in manages to stay in the young adult section, I thought the author toed the line very well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from pass on this YA series having to read the characters train of thoughts was painful and exasperating. If you have any understanding of self worth reading this book will be a waste of time.
Date published: 2018-02-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great YA series I grew up being a huge fan of Ann Rice novels. This series of course is not nearly as strong and characters not as developed, but perhaps it is slightly more appropriate for a younger audience. Well worth the read still!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for preteens I loved these books when I was around 11 and 12. I finished each book in about 2 days. A definite plus is that they encouraged me to read more during an age where I was beginning to lose interest in books. Not necessarily something I would read now in my 20s, but it's great for tween's. Easily the best book of the series.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Entertaining! It was a very entertaining read...though I must say the whole Jacob loving Bella's fetus thing was a little too strange for my liking...I also didn't enjoy how there was so much hype over a battle that never actually happens...*SPOILER ALERT* They go to fight at the end and instead of battling each other they talk out their about a disappointment. Other than that though, great read!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great People are very harsh on this series when it's meant for a younger audience. Sure it's a little corny, but it's a good story that sucks you into its unique world and an easy read that is a great and fun page turner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty Good I loved meeting all the new characters like Garret and Kate and etc. I loved learning more about the special things everyone could do and it was really interesting seeing Bella take on the role of mother because it forced her to grow ups bit. I have not been the biggest fan of Bella throughout the series but I liked seeing her portrayed as a strong female character who is a badass mom instead of a mopey girl who gets depressed after an unhealthy relationship ends. I also liked finally seeing Edward and Jacob become friends in a way, it was interesting. #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Perfect Happily Ever After I read this book about a month ago after I read Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and The Short Second Life Of Bree Tanner, and I'm so happy I did! Breaking Dawn is the perfect ending to a great series and portrays the ever lasting love between Edward and Bella beautifully. This book is a great read for teens and it's perfect for someone who's looking for a good novel to read. I would recommend this novel to friends, family, and even strangers! Read this amazing book to find out what happens!!!

Date published: 2017-08-03
Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit better than the last 3 books I watched the movies before reading the books, I know, not the way you're supposed to do things. I found that this last book however made Bella seem a little bit smarter. In the movies I always found her to be pretty stupid, just accepting her fate, listening to what everybody else tells her, never having an opinion on her own. In the book however she was able to puzzle some things out on her own and think by herself even just a little, it was reassuring to say the least.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from And here it all goes to complete shit For being mediocre at its best my expectations were low, but this is where it takes the cake. So much stupidity, so much messed twisted crap to make everyone live happily ever after, in a non violent way especially in a book about vampires and werewolves. Honestly I thought I was reading a comedy
Date published: 2017-07-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Over Hyped and waste of eyesight I read this series before the movies started, and in elementary school it was amazing. Now when I look back it's poorly written. But to think she's like a billionaire off this now lol. That's sad. Do not buy.
Date published: 2017-07-12
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Blah... It took me three times to actually get into this particular instalment. The usual suspects are soon joined by a new casts of characters which are, frankly, sometimes more interesting then the original protagonists. The ending feels rushed and then let's you down. An ending which is on par with the rest of the series. Entertaining but not edifying prose.
Date published: 2017-07-10

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Liked Stephenie Meyer... I think she is a terrific story teller but not the greatest writer of all time, although she has gotten better over time. There were times in this book (and her others) where I was nauseated by the excessive romance. I could really relate to Bella as I feel that I used to be very much like her in so many ways when I was her age. I've since grown and developed better boundaries and more self worth but people seem to forget that she is really young in this book and her immaturity in romance is very understandable and realistic for her type of personality. Kudos to Stephenie Meyer for writing such impact-full books. ***Minor spoilers*** This book was not as good as the other books and way too long. However it kept me reading and I really loved the ending. The tension of the battle is fantastically written, Bella's blocking power is so cool.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not my idea of a great conclusion to the series It was an alright conclusion, but it could've been better, and given the anticipation, I was expecting more. The whole book built up to this one moment which basically didn't happen. I also just didn't particularly like the storyline for this book - that's more of a personal preference though. Since it's the last book of the series, I would say it's worth the read - just don't expect it to be fantastic.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Breaking Dawn This was an utterly useless book. In previous books Bella was desperate for Edward's approval and attention. In this book she is desperate for sex and doing everything to seduce him. Seriously! Then there is Jacob, really don't want to get in to that. Then the whole vampire community unites to have a war that never happens. This series could've ended at 3rd book.
Date published: 2017-03-26
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Weird final book There were quite a few issues I had with this book back when I read it. WARNING, SPOILERS AHEAD! Not only was it extremely odd for Jacob to imprint on Bella and Edward's daughter.. (can you imagine how it would be when Renesmee finds out that her boyfriend and her mother had a thing?) but the fact that the whole book was focused on some battle that just dissolved with no real boiling point really annoyed me. It was still somewhat interesting and again, it was still well written, but the story was just weird and as a final book, I was expecting to get a better conclusion. If you liked the series, I would still recommend it so that you know what happens.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best in the series This is a good end to the series, there were still some holes and love seemed to be substituted for teen lust (I wonder if Bella had actually been turned when she was in her late 20's/30's if she'd have still been interested in her hormonal Nosferatu) The thing I wasn't expecting from this book is that I found myself not really caring about Edward and Bella (despite the author's attempts) but being more interested in the outcome of Jacob, Renesmee and the other Cullens.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Finally ... After 2,443 pages, I finally could take a huge breath and say that I am finished. Reader's guilt played a huge role in it. The plot was very strange and borderline creepy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Graphic As beautiful as it is to get married and have a family in your own time, the book doesn't show it. It's all lust and passion- the characters don't know true love. This isn't what anyone should be reading. I'm not saying that it isn't written well- which it isn't- but that you should control what you feed your brain. This isn't good brain food. It's like reading a magazine. I didn't see any real content in the book. Also graphic. #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Ending! Breaking Dawn was the perfect ending to one of my all time favorite series. It wasn't at all what I was expecting, but I honestly ended up being okay with that. The expected battle with the Volturi, the fate of ReneeEsme's life, the introduction of new vampires, and Alice and Jasper's temporary disappearance all combined to make this a book I couldn't put down, and the ending was beautifully done, and had me reading the last few pages over and over again.

While I loved getting to meet all the international vampires, I felt like Renesmee was just another Mary-Sue character and that Jacob's character was ultimately ruined in this book. Breaking Dawn was certainly not the ending I was expecting. Everything tied up a little to nicely for my liking.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh... This book is the finale of the series and can I just say that I was pretty excited to finish it? The Twilight Saga is something that I told myself I would read with an open mind but that became harder to follow when I was reading New Moon (I could bear Twilight). I also have many questions as to why it ended the way that it did because it almost seemed too easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Where to start ... This book you will love and get angry at all at the same time because of whats happening in the book this is such a great book love the style of writing and I suggest not wanting to get interupted while reading ! It shows multiple characters points of view and how they are dealing with things and their feelings

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overrated I started reading the series when I was 17. Read book one to three back to back. I loved it back then. When this final book came out, I could barely get through the book halfway before stopping and finishing it 6 months later. This book is the worst of the bunch. All the loose ends seem to be tied by the end of the book but that's just because the plot was thin to begin with. That big fight the books were leading up to? Nope. Doesn't happen. Third wheel Jacob get his heart broken? That's fine. He'll just fall in love with the infant child of the girl he was crushing on for years. Ella's power? Never really explained as it connect to her character as much as Edward's or Jackson's abilities aside from the fact that she just has it. Tee writing is just horrible. I was fine with it when I was reading book one because it appeared to be a darker, YA romance. Years later, the writing hasn't improved.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Breaking Dawn This book was an interesting conclusion to the series. However, I felt again that there was too much excessive angst and dramatics, especially on Edward's part. True love seems to be expressed by dramatic flare and foolish, disturbed thinking, as illustrated by Edward's proposal to Jacob concerning Bella having children, and Jacob's contemplation of his offer. Bella's reaction to all of this is nothing less than fiction, but even fiction requires content realistic to its world and circumstances. I felt the post-birth section of the book had a stronger plot-line, although the change in dynamic between Bella, Jacob and Renesme is still incredibly weird and slightly disturbing, regardless of the reasoning the author offers. That aside, I felt that Jacob's story as an Alpha was interesting, as well as the concluding stand-off of the series.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It was alright I start reading this book in 2011. Reading half the book was easy but when Bella becomes vampire it was less good and the writing was hard to understand. It took me more the a year to finish this book. I am glad I read it but I don't think I'll re-read it because it took me forever to finish. I still love this series but this book was my least favorite of the entire twilight saga series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Book, EVER!!!! LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!!! This book is just the right balance between romance and action. I loved how there was happiness and then after the happiness, there was failures, disappointments, losses and fear. Some characters that might be fading from your memory that were a big part of the story come back, like come re-introduced into the story, which I admire form Stephanie Myer. She writes the story as if you are in it, with lots of details. Most of the time, I felt like I was in the room with all of the characters. Like I was experiencing all of the emotions. I agreed with some of the decisions made by the characters, some, not so much. I was the one that introduced my mom to this fantastic series. I really liked this book!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing and creative I have to say the twilight saga was amazing. Bella is someone i am sure many can relate to. She is not very pretty, she is not athletic, and she does not have the best of luck. Then theres Edward. He is basically perfect. Maybe everyones dream guy. The story that Stephanie Meyer wrote is about how Bella, a normal everyday girl, falls in love with the perfect and amazingly attractive Edward.Some would say that Stephanie Meyer did not use logic in her vampire fantasy book. It is true. She did not use any traditional vampire stereo-type stuff about coffins and crosses or turning to ashes in the sun. She got this idea through a DREAM. Her dream was specifically the meadow scene where Edward and Bella lie down next to eachother and Edward sparkles. To me, it does not matter that Stephanie broke the vampire code or whatever. She used her creative imagination to write a beautiful story about a forbbiden love between a vampire and human. Well, personally i think the Twilight saga is a real page turner. I stayed up 7 nights in a row just to read and re-read the saga.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of shelf space I wouldn't go as far to say that any of the first few books were terrible. The first book is something of a guilty pleasure for me - sure, it doesn't have the greatest plot or the greatest characters, but it was cute enough in its own way that I enjoyed it. Then, it was all downhill from there, and just when I thought you couldn't get any lower than Eclipse, BAM, we get Breaking Dawn. To put it bluntly, I've read better fanfiction. Better, more BELIEVABLE fanfiction. I felt like I was being treated like an idiot the whole time. Either Ms. Meyer thought we were stupid, or she has a deep hatred for logic. The actions of the characters simply do not make sense, and only serve to create stupid, shallow melodrama. And it's just pages and pages of characters making ridiculous choices, which yield NO CONSEQUENCES. In the end, everything is happy-sugar-rainbows. You just don't feel that the characters - especially Bella - should receive their happy ending. The book is so predictable that you KNOW that there's going to be a happy ending, so you never feel as if the characters are in any real danger. Look, maybe Ms. Meyer was trying to go for the "Romeo and Juliet" feel. The play's certainly referenced enough in the series. But Shakespeare's play represented the tragedy that comes with making foolish mistakes. In Breaking Dawn, the characters constantly make foolish mistake after foolish mistake, but through plot convenience and the "power of love" (UGHHH, gag me), every character gets their happy ending. This is one happy ending we can all do without.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Awesome To me Stephenie has out done hereself with this book. I found it to be a great read. How ever I did find this book a little more darker and rivelting then the first three books. I loved how it all comes to an end and every thing gets reveled, and also out of all three books I found the first book to be the best. This saga is the first of it's kind that I have read from start to finish, and now can understand what book lovers mean when they say that they loved a sreies, or read a book that inspired them. Thanks to Stephenie for writting this serise, it has opened me to a who new world of inamigntion. Thank you Stephenie for writting this saga, it has made me a better reader, and it also has made me want to read more. I found this saga Absolutely awsome, and as far as I am concerned, it is the best set of books that I have read up to date.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A Horrific Disappointment Just like the rest of the world, I was completely captivated by the first three Twilight books. Sure, I recognized that the plots could use a little fine tuning, (they all start out a bit slow), and that they didn't comprise of the best writing ever, but they were charming and contained love-able characters, nonetheless. So of course, I waited impatiently for months for the final installment, ready for the sure-to-be thrilling end to an epic love saga. But no. It was not to be. I was mortified at the plot of Breaking Dawn. I had read fanfiction much better than this, and had read a fic months before with pretty well the same plot. (and in fact was convinced that it must be some kind of fanfiction joke) The baby was just a pathetic plot device to give Jacob something to imprint on, so as to keep Jacob fans placated. The birth scene was both gruesome and the only real bit of discriptive writing there is in the novel. Bella's whole transformation was awful, as well. Even though, throughout all the other books, Bella had heard many warnings about vampires andthe struggles to maintain control - Jasper was still struggling - little Bella is perfect from the get-go.In fact, she become totally unrelatable due to her perfections. She's so perfect, that she seems to be the only one who believes that Alice had not abandoned them. (A feat which, if the characters had read any of the other books, they would've realized was not something Alice would ever do. - way to know your characters, Ms.Meyer - not.) Lastly, the book itself is slowpaced and tedious, far from the epic adventure I was hoping for. The only bit of "action" in the story is the search for other vampires in the world that will help the Cullens battle the volturi in the final "climatic" battle - if you can call it that. I turns out, there was no need for all those vamps, because perfect little Bella suddenly has a magical forcefield that protects them all from harm, scaring the volturi away. The end. So, just to re-iterate, if you liked the Twilight books because they were exciting and full of love and angst, and not just because everyone in the WORLD suddenly likes them, I'd forego this last book if I were you. It will ruin your whole perception of the series. Trust me, you'll want to pretend it ended happily and open-ended with Eclipse.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Oh Brother! I loved the first book in this series, and I liked the second, but was rolling my eyes through the entire reading of the last. Unfortunately, it was, for me, all downhill after the first book, but the third was truly the worst. Granted, if you buy into the premise at the centre of this story, which I won't reveal for those who still want to read it, then I guess it can be an okay story. Personally, I didn't buy it at all, and my only motivation to keep reading was to be able to say that I got through it. I may not be in the target age group for this novel,but I would not recommend this book at all. Sorry, but there are so many more interesting works of fiction out there that this one does not merit the hype it is getting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING, FANTASTIC, AND SO MUCH MORE There are only 2 words to describe this book. Absolutely Amazing! The first time I read this book was the happiest day of my life. Some of you people might think I'm exaggerating, but I'm not. In my opinion this series is the best series that I have ever read! This book is the best out of all of them. There is happiness, sadness, exiting parts, weird parts , and so much more. It was inspiring. I started writing my own book but it doesn't compare to this master piece. The first part is on Bella's perspective. The second part is on Jacob's perspective. The last part is on Bella's perspective again. Don't listen to just the bad reviews or just the good ones. Read it. Take it with your own perspective. When I was reading this, I felt like I as Jacob or Bella. This book is very different from the other books. True, Bella gets everything she wants and more but she and the Cullens get a very bad surprise that forced them to rely on their friends and the wolves. Only one word is needed to explain that bad surprise "Volturi". Yup, them again. But how they resolve it is extraordinary. Bella figures out she has a special power too. There are also very inspiring parts in the book (mostly at the end). Now I leave you with a line from the book. "I came to witness, I stay to fight."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it was fantabulous i thought breaking dawn was amazing, the wedding was spectacular, the honeymoon was full of surprises, and then it was so suspenseful when you didn't know if bella would live or die and if the baby would be a monster or not. when renesmee was born it was so perfect, untill renesmee was mistaken as an imortal child and the vutouri then threatened not only renesmee's existance but the cullen's and their witnesses as well. then when they thought all was lost alice and jasper reterned to save them all, it was the best ending ever. in my opinion the twilight saga is second only to percy jackson and the olympians and i loved it!

Everything is just sooooo perfect, its so lame!! Actually the whole story of the saga is just sooo pretictable. And all this cheeziness is just absolutly annoying, sometimes I just could not stand it. Stephanie was repeating herself over and over again, over 4 books. It was driving me crazy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed There was no climax!...Meyer sets up the scene quite nicely and then lets it sort of hang there. Definitely the weakest book in the series, this book is full of laughable sequences that detract from the tone and take us in a different direction than the other books. I have many issues with the Twilight saga but with the first 3 there was something drawing me back to finish, with BD, that pull was just not there

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book! I really liked this book and I loved all the books from the Twilight Saga. This book is full of action, always intriging and filled with suprises. We see throughout the book the friendship Bella has developed with Edward's family and how her relationship with Edward has really grown. I think it's the best book out of the four books from the saga. It leaves you hanging on your chair until the last page!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It was good It could have been condensed a bit more. I find the character's very appealing, but she rambles on a little too much at times. I enjoyed Bella's character the more you read. In twilight, I found her character very juvenile and annoying, then as you read through the other books, she becomes more mature and intriguing and so very like-able (especially as a vampire). Jacob is extremely annoying, I liked him better before he became a wolf. In real life, I'd kick them both to the curb, too much hovering.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Expected too much I'm kind of dissapointed. I didnt know what to expect but...what happened was nothing i was ready for. I loved the twilight series and once i read breaking dawn, i didnt like it as much. I think stephanie could of done better, but then again what else could she of written it bout? Maybe i was expecting too much, becuase eclipse was just soo good. But i realized, new moon and breaking dawn were dissapointments becuase i expected so much out of them, becuase twilight was soo good, and eclipse was just a bang of excitment.
