This book, which was a mixture of hating it and loving it to finally despising it, made me want to go to Ms. Meyers and beg her on bended knee to PLEASE write a real sequel to this series. I say this because although I think Ms. Rush told a very interesting story, (she's actually pretty good and I commend her for putting the time, effort and detail into a book that is not hers originally and will not, at least directly, make any money off of) these characters are a product of Ms. Meyers mind and you got the sense throughout the whole story that these were just not the same characters. At least that is how I felt. I just couldn't immerse myself because everytime I would start to get into it, one of the characters would say or do something that would make me think "Stephanie would NOT have had them do that or say that or think that. And there was to many of the familiar characters missing too. Charlie, Billy, Emmett, Rosalee, The wolves (other than Jacob), Even Edward and Bella were sort of in the background acting like... real parents, yuck! Did Jean forget that Edward is 17 and Bella is 18? As I said, I give her props and although it was a very interesting story I do not believe Ms. Meyers would have wrote it this way and definitely believe she would have had a different ending. As I said, the book had it's highs (really worth reading) and it's lows... but the ending just sucked! Which is why in the end I will dismiss it and wait with fingers crossed for Ms. Meyers to give us the real story.

I'm sorry. This is the dumbest book imaginable! I am still cracking up at the total ridiculousness of it all. Leah and Demetri??? Are you freaking kidding me??? And having the wolves lose their phasing power is just dumb. This book was so disjointed and just all over the place, as if the author was was writing off the top of her head as she went along. The long and boring part where Renesmee was in school, just seemed like a filler to stretch the book out, maybe because all she had was Leah imprinting on Demetri and she had to build her story around that. She would continuously go places that had a dead end. Write in happenings and conversations that had no relevance. Like, what was the purpose of Renesmee getting attacked by humans? And the manner in which she incorporated the Cody vamp and his story was unbelievably amateurish. The worse offense, I think is that she had characters that we have come to know and love, say and do things that we KNOW they would not even consider. Also, the way she started and ended chapters made me think that she had no clue how to do that. And her sense of timing was just awful. Throughout this book I would bang my head in disbelief at some of the more preposterous things she wrote. But it's free right? And so far Ms Meyer's wont give her fans what we so desperately want. :-( And the ending! Uggghhh! Could it have been worse? YES! The epilogue! Leah having twins by Demetri!!!!! This is so unbelievably ridiculous! This book was much worse than this author's first attempt at trying to prompt Ms. Meyer into writing sequels to this series. If I were Ms Meyers there is two things I would do. I would sue Ms. Rush, not for copyright infringement (after-all, the book is free) but for taking her characters and creating this farce of a tale! And secondly, I would DEFINITELY write a REAL sequel to the twilight series. Ms. Meyer's.... We are waiting....
