New Moon by Stephenie Meyer

New Moon is even better than the first book, Twilight. Not only are there vampires, but werewolves. Stephenie Meyer’s hit series Twilight is about a girl who moves to the small, rainy town of Forks, Washington. In Forks, Bella, the main character, falls in love with a vampire, Edward Cullen. A year into their relationship Edward leaves, not because he doesn’t love Bella, but because he fears for her safety while she is around him.

After Edward leaves, Bella starts hanging out with the Native Americans at the nearby La Push reservation. She makes friends with Jacob Black; soon after, she realizes that Jacob knows more about vampires than she does, especially since Jacob is a werewolf. As she and Jacob become closer, she realizes that Jacob loves her. Bella wonders if she should give up and return Jacob’s love or cling on to the last bit of hope that Edward will return. But before Bella makes her decision, someone knocks on the door. It’s Alice, Edward’s sister. She comes with a message, about Edward, and it’s not good.

Soon after Bella finds herself on the other side of the world, in Italy, trying to escape a dangerous group of vampires called the Vultri. And on top of all that, she is being hunted by other vampires.

This book is great, much better than the first; it’s good to have a twist of action and romance. Personally, I like Jacob better than Edward. He’s much more relaxed and humorous.

5 Stars
