Though many Meyer fans who identified with Bella's original nature may disagree with me, I felt that Breaking Dawn was a satisfying conclusion to the Twilight series. Meyer managed to stay true to her strengths — the ability to create a suspenseful ride coupled with the yearning, joy, and pain of young love.
Edward was beside me in the same second, his hands clamped down hard on the tops of my arms.
"Don't breathe," he cautioned me urgently.
I tried not to panic as I froze mid-breath. My eyes were the only things that moved, wheeling instinctively to find the source of the sound.
For those of you who are sad to see the series come to an end, take heart in the fact that the storyline still leaves several doorways open to potential sideline series that may stem from these rich characters, should Stephenie Meyer so choose. While the third book, Eclipse, concluded with a short epilogue told from the viewpoint of Jacob Black, Breaking Dawn in fact incorporated roughly one-third of the book told from Jacob's perspective. Perhaps it is merely wishful thinking, but I could certainly envision future possibilities that might include books told from the perspective of any number of recurring or even recently introduced characters from the Twilight series.
