In the dead silence, all the details suddenly fell into place for me with a burst of intuition.
Something Edward didn't want me to know.
Something that Jacob wouldn't have kept from me ... It was never going to end, was it?

This is the 3rd book in the Twilight Saga, and once again Stephenie has kept everything moving along smoothly - with lots of action and romance thrown in. I like the way that Stephenie writes ... not alot of senseless descriptions of scenery, or useless information that isn't relevant to the storyline.

The beginning of a comraderie between Edward and Jacob, their sole purpose to keep Bella safe, once they realise that the newborn Vampire Army has been created to kill her ... is interesting and funny at times.

Edward's undying love shines through once again ... and Jacob's love for Bella really comes to the surface for the first time in my opinion. And also as we get to see in insight to other characters in the book - Seth and Leah especially, I really liked that. And Bella - watching her become aware that she loves Jacob - not the way she loves Edward - it is portrayed with great emotion.

The Vampires and Werewolves working together is brilliant - just showing in real life, opposite sides can work together for the greater good.

Once again, I found myself totally swept away with the story - and the emotions also kicked in during certain parts of the book - well done yet again Stephenie.

This book transitioned into movie form really well too. As always ... you are never going to get everything into a movie exactly as it appears in the book - but they really did do a great job with this one.

Breaking Dawn is the next book in the saga ... with the movie currently being filmed now - Part 1 not released until November 2011 ... soooooooooo far away for this addict.
