While Bella does show some progression in this story, it is dampened by the series of events surrounding this growth, and some questionable last-minute curveballs that left many readers, myself included, with a bad taste in the back of their mouth.

 Undoubtedly, the character with the most amount of growth has to be Jacob Black, the werewolf best friend who is relegated to the shadows. He shows a tremendous amount of growth and maturity in spite of his poor treatment.

But the rest of the engaging characters are sidelined here, giving the Cullens little to do but fill in the gaps while the main event looms over the horizon. Unfortunately, the ending felt rather anti-climactic and abrupt considering the amount of time spent building up to it
