While everyone is training to fight, Bella and Edward go to the mountains. They decide to camp out and hide there during the fight. While they are there, Jacob overhears Bella and Edward talking about getting married. Jacob gets very angry and wants to hurt himself. Bella calms him down by kissing him. Edward realizes that Bella also loves Jacob. Bella admits that she loves Edward more than Jacob.

Victoria and the army of newborn vampires arrive and fight against Edward's family and Jacob's wolf pack. Victoria wants to kill Bella and Edward must protect her. The newborns must be defeated.
Best part of story, including ending: The creation of the army of newborn vampires was very interesting because their power was intriguing. I liked how Edward's family had to train to fight the newborns. It was a great twist when Edward's family teamed up with Jacob's wolf pack to fight the newborns.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene was when Jacob kissed Bella. I liked this scene because Jacob finally got to kiss the girl he loves. It made the movie more interesting because she now has to choose between Jacob and Edward.

Opinion about the main character: What I disliked about Bella was they she always leads Jacob on. She spends too much time with him and makes him fall in love with her. She shouldn't do that if she loves Edward.
