As Breaking Dawn begins, Bella is about to get all she’s been waiting for: marriage to Edward, and then, finally, conversion to a vampire in order to join him in immortality. The first goes off without a hitch, but something wholly unexpected occurs during their honeymoon in paradise.
This conclusion to Bella’s story was worth reading, but ultimately a disappointment. Every loose end or uncertainty was tidily wrapped up into a even-better-than-perfect package, and everyone was blissfully happy. It was just too much to swallow. I’d hoped for more grit. And “Renesmee” ranks up there with “Jonayla” among the most gag-inducing invented names in literature.
