Book four and the finale to Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Saga is Breaking Dawn. We've learned a little bit about the Volturi, the leading Vampire coven, in each of the first three books. In Breaking Dawn, things finally come to a head with Jacob, Edward and Bella. Again, I might be a little vague to avoid giving too much away.

As Bella and Edward take a new turn in their relationship, Jacob is left to his own self discovery until his heart is finally snatched away from him. As the three of them struggle to make the best out of the deranged circumstances they are put under, in the background the Volturi are planning a brutal take over. When your body and vengeance can live forever, a takeover can only mean one thing: death. Will Bella lose her true love? Her new family? What will Jacob risk to do what he feels is right?

Breaking Dawn answers all of the questions that the tortured readers, waiting for the next book, asked about. Because of that, the book can at times seem rushed and out of sync with the rest of the series. I'm going to again give my personal opinion and say that I don't feel that the book was rushed at all. I think that in order to wrap up a fantastic saga, Meyer had to fit a lot of information in an infinitesimally small space between two covers. The way that she handles this in the book is absolutely fabulous!

Fair warning - this book is different (but not out of sync) from the rest of the saga. I would have to say that Breaking Dawn pushes the Young Adult boundaries just a smidge. I

"Staff Pick" by ,

I can't remember a more highly anticipated book that doesn't begin with "Harry Potter and the...." Far from just a young adult horror book, this last volume in Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Saga is an old-fashioned romance of the highest order, with legions of fans ages 8 to 80. Don't let another dawn break without Breaking Dawn. Or join in the fun and start with the first book, Twilight. It will engulf you; I dare you to attempt to get any other tasks done once you've started the series.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "It ought to seem redundant to dismiss the fourth and final Twilight novel as escapist fantasy-but how else could anyone look at a romance about an ordinary, even clumsy teenager torn between a vampire and a werewolf, both of whom are willing to sacrifice their happiness for hers? Flaws and all, however, Meyer's first three novels touched on something powerful in their weird refraction of our culture's paradoxical messages about sex and sexuality. The conclusion is much thinner, despite its interminable length. Everygirl Bella achieves her wishes quickly (marriage and sex, in that order, are two, and becoming an immortal is another), and once she becomes a vampire it's almost impossible to identify with her. But that's not the main problem. Essentially, everyone gets everything they want, even if their desires necessitate an about-face in characterization or the messy introduction of some back story. Nobody has to renounce anything or suffer more than temporarily-in other words, grandeur is out. This isn't about happy endings; it's about gratification. A sign of the times? Ages 12-up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Synopsis" by , New York Times-bestselling author Meyer returns to her teen vampire Twilight Saga with this much-anticipated fourth book in the series. In this riveting novel, questions will be answered and the fate of Bella and Edward will be revealed.
"Synopsis" by , The #1 New York Times bestseller is available with a striking movie tie-in cover and includes a pull-out poster.

The astonishing conclusion to the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn, illuminates the secrets and mysteries of this spellbinding romantic epic that has entranced millions. Now that Bella has made her decision to join the dark but seductive world of immortals, 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 inNew Moon and Eclipse-seem ready to heal and knit together, could they be destroyed... forever?

"Synopsis" by , 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?

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 in Twilight, then scattered and torn in New Moon and Eclipse-seem ready to heal and knit together, could they be destroyed... forever?

The astonishing, breathlessly anticipated conclusion to the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn illuminates the secrets and mysteries of this spellbinding romantic epic that has entranced millions.
