The Supernatural Theme
In Breaking Dawn, the human and the supernatural worlds meet, which changes the lives of the characters forever. After Bella turns into a vampire, she notices that her human memories are fading in the face of her far more complex experience of the vampire world. When Jacob exposes Charlie to the supernatural world around him, the man struggles between denial and his wish to know the whole truth.
