Forever Dawn is the original, unpublished sequel to Twilight, written for Stephenie Meyer's own enjoyment. Meyer says that the book did not fit in with her young adult audience, since she "pretty much passed over the rest of Bella's high school experience entirely, skipping ahead to a time in her life with più mature themes." The book was therefore never published, and Meyer instead gave it to her older sister as a birthday present. No plans to formally pubblica the novel exist, as much of its plot was later explored in the three later libri of the series. However, Meyer has promised fan the opportunity to read excerpts from Forever Dawn. These excerpts were delayed until after the publishing of Eclipse and Breaking Dawn, to avoid spoiling the plotline.
Stephenie Meyer's self-designed cover for the book.
Forever Dawn is discussed on Meyer's official website in the Breaking Dawn faq section, and a cover designed da Meyer is included on the website.
Comparison with Breaking Dawn
The basic storyline of Forever Dawn was very similar to that of Breaking Dawn. Since the events of New Moon and Eclipse did not occur, Victoria knew that Renesmee was half-human, half-vampire, but decided to tell the Volturi that she was an immortal child as revenge to the Cullen family for killing James.
