New Moon by Stephenie Meyer

Genre:  Fantasy, Romance

Age Level:  14 and up

# of pages:  563

RAC Book:  Yes

In this sequel to Twilight, Bella must learn to cope when Edward and the rest of the Cullens choose to leave because they believe it is too dangerous for Bella if they stay.  Bella falls apart and only begins to heal when her and Jacob Black become closer friends.  Bella also learns that if she is doing something dangerous she can head Edward’s voice in her head, which she finds reassuring.  When Jacob reveals some surprising news it becomes very clear that the two of them will not be able to remain friends if Edward comes back.  At the same time, Bella learns that Edward has received some false information that has prompted him to risk his life.  Can she save Edward?  Can she help Edward and Jacob to get along?

 This second installment was as good as the first.  In this book we learn a lot more about Jacob and his family as well as why they do not trust vampires. Edward is not in it as much, which is unfortunate, but the story is not boring in any way as we wait for him to return.  Those who enjoyed the first one will love this one as well.

    I expected, somehow, that Edward’s absence would make him less influential as a romantic lead, and so I wasn’t looking forward to reading this book.

    I don’t know how she did it. But she made Jacob amazing while still keeping Edward a very real influence over Bella, all without creating undue bias for one boy over the other (for the reader — Bella is obviously biased).

    I was impressed.

    So was my husband, even though he swore he’d never read the books so I told him every single detail of the story, and then he liked the movie and… read the books.

    XD Hee hee.
