Is it the love story, the love triangle, the fantasy? Or is it the allure of being a vampire that sparkles and lives forever or the battle of wolves versus vampires? What is it exactly that makes me love the Twilight movies? Let me start with I have not read every book of the Twilight series, I fell in love with the Twilight saga movies. The innocent Bella living in the grayest of places who meets a charming man who turns out to be a vampire and colors her world in ways she never knew existed. Then the dreamy hunk of Jacob shows up - strong, tough, different and equally wanting to win the affection of Bella.

What do we human minds know of the world of vampires or wolves? Is it their superpowers, strength, codes of secrets which the Voltaire strives to protect? I love the Twilight saga for it's unpredictability, which includes the forbidden nature of human and vampire love, Bella walking down the aisle with Edward and becoming pregnant with his child.

Here is where you enter Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part 2. Bella has just given birth to Renesmee which almost killed her. Bella's blood is now vampire blood which gives her power and clarity she has never had before. Jacob is very present in the world of Bella, Edward and Renesmee. What is the future of Renesmee? Is Bella able to really live in the vampire world where fresh blood calls her name? What happens when the Voltaire fears their secret world of vampire powers could be exposed? What harm could a child do to the world of vampires and wolves?

I won't ruin it for you, but I will say go see this movie. Like, right now. Go tonight! It's a story of love, of a mother protecting her child, of uniting against lies and misinformation, of war, and of truth. Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 left me in tears. I love the story of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen and the graciousness of Jacob to be a good guy who surrendered his love to Bella to be a guide in their lives. I love the light and dark of this story; I love the vampire friendships and unity. I love that while we sit in our very normal world, Stephanie Meyer's imagination weaved together a powerful story!
