"A New Werewolf is in town ..."
The book begins with Bella and the Cullen family (the
vampires.) She's becomes too comfortable in their midst and
they forgot that she is only human. During Bella's birthday
celebration, Bella cuts herself and Edward is forced to
protect her. Edward realizes his time with Bella must come
to an end before she ends up hurt or worse. He withdraws
distancing himself from her emotionally until he and his
family leave town... forever.
Bella's life has been turned upside down and the pain
unbearable. Bella begins to hear Edward's voice warning her
when she puts herself in harm's way. Bella decides to
embrace danger just to hear his voice. (remember this tale
is a teen book) Bella is overdramatic with her obsession in
losing Edward. Keep in mind how you were as a teen and
you'll understand why Bella can't see past the moment.
Jacob Black, the Native American from Twilight, makes a
re-appearance in this book. He becomes a close friend and
tries to help Bella through her depression. Jacob is a
loveable character with all his teenage awkwardness and
attempts to win Bella's heart. Jacob also must deal with
what he has become—a werewolf. I would have liked if there
had been more detail about the werewolves. I found their
There is so much chemistry between Bella and Jacob I was
hoping they would end up together. (And I was an Edward fan
in the first book.) Where this story ends it leaves it open
for the third tale of the series.
