rating: 4 of 5 stars
It was excellent if you can suspend disbelief for half the book. It also makes up for the last two books. Breaking Dawn got back to what i found interesting, the vampire history. I'll admit, in the beginning, i thought it was going to be a lot more of bella and edward fighting over what can and can't be done. Granted, there was still a lot of "yes/no" pull through the first half of the book. The second half makes up for it though.
I do have one big problem, how if everything human in edward is gone, can he still have sperm?! That's a very human necessity for reproduction, not so much for vampires who bite people to multiply. Also, with all the research that Carlisle has done, why did he not research incubus legends before edward went off and had a honeymoon with bella? There are just some illogical "what, we didn't know!" that i found annoying. Plus, how could the Volturi be so out of the loop of the possibility of a human woman carrying a half-breed to full term (even if the woman is supposed to die) if they’re so powerful and all knowing?
I really enjoyed having a section dedicated to Jacob. I think out of the three he is my favorite character. Stephanie did do a good job of writing in a different tone for his character vs. bella’s.
The series ended just as it should have, happily ever after, i was kinda glad no one died. I didn't want to see any of the pairs split up.
