Publisher's Summary

For Bella Swan, there is one thing more important than life itself: Edward Cullen. But being in love with a vampire is even more dangerous than Bella ever could have imagined. Edward has already rescued Bella from the clutches of one evil vampire, but now, as their daring relationship threatens all that is near and dear to them, they realize their troubles may be just beginning.

Legions of readers entranced by the New York Times best-seller Twilight are hungry for the continuing story of star-crossed lovers Bella and Edward. In New Moon, Stephenie Meyer delivers another irresistible combination of romance and suspense with a supernatural spin. Passionate, riveting, and full of surprising twists and turns, this vampire love saga is well on its way to literary immortality.

What the Critics Say

"New Moon will more than feed the bloodthirsty hankerings of fans of the first volume and leave them breathless for the third." (School Library Journal)
"Bella's dismay at being ordinary (after all, she's only human) will strike a chord even among girls who have no desire to be immortal, and like the vampires who watch Bella bleed with 'fevered eyes', teens will relish this new adventure and hunger for more." (Booklist)

    "Started slow but then I couldn't turn it off!"

    I enjoyed book 2 of the Twilight series, although at times I did get a bit frustrated with the dynamics of the Edward/Bella relationship, which seemed to get dragged out. I wished I could speed up the narration at those points. The beginning wasn't great and I thought perhaps the magic was lost once the suspense of "will they or won't they" get together was gone; however, it definitely improved and once again I found myself sitting in the driveway not wanting to turn the car off!

    I'm a teen; my favorites series are Outlander by Diana Gabaldon and Twilight by Stephene Meyer.

    "NUMBER ONE"

    This book is written by my favorite author, Stephenie Meyer. I am absolutely enchnanted by her series, Twilight. New Moon is the second book in the series out of the present three, although Breaking Dawn, the fourth book, comes out in a little less than a year.
    New Moon begins almost exactly where Twilight leaves off (leaving off after the almost fatal vampire attack and the end of Bella's school year). It is now Bella's 18th birthday, and she gets a paper cut, triggering the wild thirst for blood in Jaspar, Edward(Bella's lover)'s brother. Edward painfully decides that Bella's life is in great danger, and cuts himself and his vampire family out of her life by moving, and lying to Bella, saying he no longer loves her. This was not true, but Bella believed him, and the story goes on, and it happens that Bella ends up saving Edward's life before they reunite.
    Anyone with any sense of literature would know that this book is quality work. It is truely remarkable. I have been drawn into Meyer's imaginary world where vampires and their enemies, the werewolves, live in secrecy to the unsuspecting humans.

    "Second book is a good as the first"

    This is a continuation of the first book, Twilight and the 2nd book is a good as the 1st. Both books are definitely worth listening to and I can't wait for the 3rd.

    "The Worst."

    I never really like the Twilight Saga, but New Moon is definetly the worst of all series. But if you're a Twilight fan, Eclipes would be better.

    "Garbage"

    Just another contrived Harlequin romance novel, but even less believable. Boy meets girl. Boy unceremoniously breaks up with girl. Girl goes off the deep end. Girl meets nice guy, but eventually decides that she prefers crazy, brooding, bipolar ex-boyfriend. Throw a few thousand "my favorite crooked smile"'s and "the huge gaping hole in my chest"'s in there and there you have it.

    the audio version is so much better than the printed version.

    "Well written Teen Trash"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    In Book 2 New Moon we return to our heroine Bella, who is dealing with having been dumped by her vampire boyfriend. This stuff is trash of course but I swear well written, with the exception of the times it just takes painfully long for something to happen. There is a clock tolling scene that takes approximately an eternity. Perhaps I am just getting old and can't appreciate some things like a teenager but Bella's ongoing anguish is so out of proportion. I kept thinking, "Yeah, it stinks to get dumped, but it doesn't cause intense physical pain, recurring nightmares, and the inability to interact, for months on end. Get a grip!" Ok, it is worse to get dumped by a vampire, because you haven't just lost a life together, you have lost the possibility of eternal life as well, but still I thought she was being too much of a drama queen. Especially when she comes up with this crazy plan to do as many reckless, dangerous and stupid things as possible as part of her coping strategy. And it isn't like she didn't find another hot guy right away - of course he's about to turn out to be a werewolf. Not always easy to be Bella...
