Could the Next ‘Twilight’ Book Be About Jacob Black and Renesmee Cullen?

Whereas J.K. Rowling was content to stop writing more books in the Hogwarts universe after completing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Twilight author Stephenie Meyer may be open to continuing her phenomenally successful series. Rumors are swirling that the next book from Meyer could focus on Edward and Bella’s daughter Renesmee, and werewolf Jacob Black.

As we’ll see in the Breaking Dawn movies, when Bella gives birth to the part-human, part-vampire Renesmee, Jacob “imprints” on her: He becomes eternally devoted to her, despite the huge age difference. (Though at the rate that she ages, she’ll be the appropriate love-interest age soon enough.) What I didn’t know about the werewolf canon was that imprinting may not necessarily signify love; instead, the werewolf acts in whatever role is needed, as friend, nanny, brother…

While this rumor hasn’t been confirmed, Meyer did express interest in continuing Renesmee’s story. At a roundtable in 2010, she described the thinking that brought her back to this hybrid child (played by MacKenzie Foy in the movie):

“…Once Bella becomes a vampire she loses her relatability. It’s subtle, but you no longer could do anything she could do and it really, as a narrator, she… loses a lot of her appeal because she’s a vampire now and it’s really interesting to see how she does things but emotionally I felt like the tie was not as strong. I wanted my narrator for the next story… But Nessie was created because she was the logical voice, you have someone who’s half-human, half-vampire who doesn’t fit in anywhere and is an outsider in some ways, but then loved and cherished by her family.”

When asked about the possibility of starring in more Twilight-verse films, Taylor Lautner laughed and said, “Breaking news to me. That would be interesting. Stephenie comes up with the craziest things. I’m sure she could go on. That’s a crazy thought!”

Would you want to read about the Jacob/Renesmee relationship?

    No! I, for one, do not care for the so called “imprinting” that is CHILD GROOMING (Look it up). I don’t care how fast she ages, how mature she is, any kind of relationship other than platonic between Jacob and Renesmee is revolting. He was in love with her mother for God’s sakes! *If*, and that is a verrrry big if, there is a book centered around them, and their relationship does not evolve into romance, I may read it, but it’s not likely.
