Breaking Down by Stephenie Meyer

The fourth and final of Stephanie Meyer's amazingly intriguing and beautiful vampire romance novel, Breaking Dawn, is one that really delivers. Meyer's gave all and more than what was expected in this highly anticipated end to a wonderful story. The book is cleverly divided into three parts. The first and last part from Bella's point of view, and the second part from Jacob Black's. In the first section, Edward and Bella finally tie the knot and have their one night of attempting pleasure. By the end of the first part of the book, an unexpected bomb shell is dropped that could mean happiness, pain or both, for the blissful newlywed couple.

For the first time in the saga the point of view is changed in the second part of Breaking Dawn to that of adored werewolf and best friend of Bella's, Jacob Black. In this part we get a good look into the minds of all the wolves and this is a crucial tool when the next big event occurs. In Jacob's part Meyer skillfully includes a split in the headstrong pack. And once again at the end of Jacob's part another bomb shell is dropped. This one could mean the end of a friendship or the start of a relationship.

In the final part, we are back in Bella's point of view. All the loose ends are tied up and the predicted confrontation with the elusive Volturi occurs, to a scale that is unimaginable. I must emphasize that so much more goes on in Breaking Dawn but I will let you find all that out for yourself.

I love Breaking Dawn to pieces!! Stephanie writes in such a way that makes it feel like you are truly in Bella's place, living the unreal things that she is. Being an avid fan of the Twilight Saga I had been counting down until the release date of this book and upon reading it I was gladly not disappointed. Meyer wields her magic until the very end, making a 780 page book mystifying, page turning, and fascinating until the very last word. Girls are left drooling at Edward and his brothers and relating or feeling slightly awestruck towards Bella and her sisters' in law. Out of all the books in the Saga, the original Twilight is my favourite but Breaking Dawn certainly gives its position a run for its money. I would definitely recommend Breaking Dawn and the whole Saga to any teenage girls.
