Breaking Dawn is the long awaited and highly anticipated end to the compelling tale of what seems to be an impossible romance between the immortal Edward Cullen and the irresistible human Bella Swan. Beginnings can be tricky, but Twilight got this series off to a fantastic start with its modern day fairy tale quality and heart stopping romance. Bella seems to be 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 ...view middle of the document...

She continuously begs Edward to change her into a vampire, but he doesn’t want her to become a monster. He thinks it would be too dangerous, so Bella is forced to wait patiently for the “right time” for Edward to agree. Edward and Bella have an interesting bond. Bella’s blood smells extremely tempting to Edward, “Like my own personal brand of heroin.” He states, more tempting than any other human’s blood. Edward must control himself and have power over these temptations, because he truly loves her and doesn’t want to hurt her. Bella thinks that her becoming a vampire will solve this problem, but Edward claims that she is his the one he has been waiting for and will do anything to keep her safe.
Breaking Dawn was split into three separate parts. The first part details Bella and Edward’s elaborate outside wedding that took place in the Cullen’s backyard. During the reception following her wedding to Edward, Bella is visited by her friend Jacob Black. When Bella admits that she and Edward plan to consummate their marriage during their honeymoon, Jacob becomes angry but is held back by his pack. He then runs off into the woods, and Edward takes an upset Bella back to the reception. They spend their honeymoon on a remote island near the coast of Brazil. Isle Esme was a wedding present to Esme from Carlisle. Although hesitant, Edward has sex with Bella for the first time.
After, Edward realizes that he bruised Bella's arm, back and shoulders during sex and he vows to never be intimate with her again, much to her disappointment; he later gives in to her seductions. Shortly after, Bella realizes that she might possibly be pregnant. Instantly Alice, who is able to see Bella’s future, calls Edwards’s cell phone to see what is wrong. Alice is no longer able to read Bella’s future and Carlisle confirms Bella’s suspicion; the couple makes plans to return soon after. The fetus develops rapidly, an occurrence that prompts Edward to request she gets an abortion. Unperturbed, Bella resists his pleas and contacts Rosalie, who has wanted children of her own and understands why Bella is risking her life for the fetus.
The novel's second part is written from the perspective of shape-shifter Jacob Black, and lasts throughout Bella's pregnancy and childbirth. Jacob's Quileute wolf pack, not knowing what danger the unborn child may pose to the town; plan to destroy it, also killing Bella. Jacob vehemently protests this decision and leaves, forming his own pack with Leah and Seth Clearwater. Four weeks after conception Bella violently gives birth to the child. In the process she loses a great deal of blood and suffers multiple broken bones. To save her life Edward is forced to embrace and turn Bella into a vampire by injecting his venom into her heart. Jacob, who was present for the birth, rejected the newborn child when he believed that Bella had passed away. After mourning the loss of his best friend, Jacob angrily goes inside to destroy the child, but when...
