Forever, shall we be together, forever shall we love.
The hopes, the joys, and the sadness of immortality, the experience and wisdom of them long, light years.
All our happiness in a single bite, a drop of blood on white snow.
If she hadnt looked so fragile I wouldve been screaming. As it was, I did growl at her. Jacob Black, Breaking Dawn, Chapter 10, p.189
The friendship that had sprung up between Edward and Seth was something that still boggled my mind. It was proof, though, that things didn’t have to be this way. That vampires and werewolves could get along just fine, thank you very much, if they were of a mind to.
Virtual indestructibility was just one of the many perks I was looking forward to. The best parts about being a Cullen were not expensive cars and impressive credit cards.
Ha ha. Because I was so fragilely human, so accident-prone, so much a victim to my own dangerous bad luck, apparently I needed a tank-resistant car to keep me safe. Hilarious. I was sure he and his brothers had enjoyed the joke quite a bit behind my back.
Body armor. Four thousand pounds of body armor. And missile-proof glass? Nice. What had happened to good old-fashioned bulletproof?
SummaryAdd a Summary
This book is continuing the end of Eclipse. It is about Bella and Edward as well as Jacob as they go through married life, as well as the conflicts they go through.
Breaking Dawn is divided into three separate parts. The first part details Bella's marriage and honeymoon with Edward, which they spend on a private island owned by Carlisle who bought it for Esme, called Isle Esme, off the coast of Brazil. Two weeks into their honeymoon, Bella realizes that she is pregnant with a half-vampire, half-human child and that her condition is progressing at an unnaturally accelerated rate. After contacting Carlisle, who confirms her pregnancy, she and Edward immediately return home to Forks, Washington. The fetus continues to develop with unnatural rapidity, and Edward, concerned for Bella's life and convinced that the fetus is going to kill her, urges her to have an abortion. However, Bella feels a connection with her unborn baby and refuses.
To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both fantasy and nightmare woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan, breaking dawn is a very intence book that makes you sit on the edge of your seat. breaking dawn is one of my favourite books out of the twilight saga.
bella on her honeymooon!!! does some funky stuff at night and edward breakes the bed stand :$ bella is covered in bruises and soon find out shes prego! with edwards child. -.- after a violent birth renaessme is born!
Bella decides to go on with the wedding to Edward Cullen, and they go on a honeymoon, and later discover Bella is pregnant. She almost dies when trying to have the half vampire, half human kid and later find out that the Volturi want to kill their daughter(Renesmee), and prepare for a battle.
As I read the Twilight saga, the two things that carried me were the romance and suspense. The romance (whether you're a member of Team Edward or Team Jacob) was palpable throughout. The works that inspired the first three books in the saga - Pride and Prejudice, Romeo and Juliet, and Wuthering Heights - number among the great romantic stories of our time, and Meyer adapted them brilliantly to her story of first love in town of Forks, WA. In terms of suspense, big battles never seemed to be the author's choice. Tense moments were built more out of implication than body count. The final showdown with James in Twilight seemed to me the most graphic battle of the first three books. The scenes with Laurent and the Volturi in New Moon were suspenseful, but no blood was shed in either. Even in Eclipse, the confrontation with Victoria and her minions played out like the chorus describing an off-stage battle in a Greek tragedy (with a bit of head rolling tossed in for good measure). So, tense and dramatic, yes. But violent and filled with depictions of hand-to-hand combat.
