REVIEW

"You Don't Have to be Teen to Enjoy the Tale"

The story has the characters returning to Forks. They find out a serial killer is loose in Seattle and it appears the killer is creating vampires. Bella can't see Jacob who she considers her best friend because he is a werewolf. (It would cause problems with the Cullen's and the treaty between vampires and werewolves.)

Bella must choose her fate. Edward wants her to remain human. He fears she will lose her soul. She must weigh the pros and cons about becoming a vampire. Will she be able to stay away from her family until she learns to control her urges to feed on humans? There is also the possibility she will give in to the blood lust.

Jacob sneaks away to see Bella. He wants her to be with him, which puts another damper on Bella's decision to become a vampire.

I liked that Bella grew up a little in this book and actually took a look at the consequences of becoming a vampire and the effect it will have on her family and friends. I liked the rivalry between Jacob and Edward for Bella's affections. We learn more about the werewolf history, which by far is an interesting story all by itself. I felt Edward is sometimes overshadowed by Jacob's personality. Jacob knows Bella. You feel his love for her. You witness how Jacob falls in love with Bella by his actions, his words or a mere touch. With Edward, you just know he's in love with Bella because the author has told us. Not to say I didn't fall in love with the first book, but I would have to say I find Jacob and Bella's relationship more realistic.

I enjoyed the book, and anyone who has been reading the series will love it too.
