Book Blurb


When you loved the one who is 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 bothe 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, 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 – first discovered in Twilight, then scattered and torn in New Moon and Eclipse – seem to heal and k it together, could they be destroyed… forever?




My Review


This is the final installment in the Twilight Saga and my favourite of them all.


The relationships continue to develop and the character’s continue to grow which is a feat in itself by the time you get to the fourth book.  The plot was strong with loose ends being tied up nicely.  The style was particularly more to my taste.  It is written in three parts: the first and third from Bella’s point of view and the second from Jacob’s.  It is an easy book to read and enjoy and a quick read despite its 700 page length.  Stephenie Meyer manages to keep your interest throughout.  It is a long time since I read the previous books in the series but I had no trouble at all remembering what had gone on before, I didn’t need to do any re-reading to remind me of plot lines.


A very good series if you enjoy books with character’s that continue to grow, plot lines that are interesting but not overly complicated and a book to immerse yourself in and forget the real world for a while.  A real snuggle on the couch series.


5/5 stars from me.
