Sadly this is the fourth and final book in the Twilight series. From the opening chapters you will feel like you are revisiting old friends and also get launched straight back in to the dramas of Bella Swan's life. Stephenie Meyer draws you in to this world so completely you will be reading almost reluctantly, knowing that the end is near. A fantastic series from start to end, with wonderful characters, exciting action and romance galore. Simply brilliant!
