Stephenie Meyer has done it yet again with the second book of the series, New Moon. In this book, Edward leaves Bella. Which is very sad because Bella becomes sad. But, Jacob was there for her. Jacob helped heal Bella's wounds, though they were never healed all the way. It would never be the same again because Bella needs Edward he is her one true love, forever and ever.

"New Moon" by Stephenie Meyer is the second book in the bestselling Twilight Saga, a teen vampire-human romance.

In this followup to Twilight, this book details the life of Bella, a human teenage girl, when her vampire boyfriend, Edward, and his family are forced to leave. It is during this book that the character of Jacob Black, a teenager werewolf, is truly introduced and the a dictionsry definition "love-triangle" develops between Bella, Edward, and Jacob.

I found this book to be as addicting as the first. I loved the complexity of this unusual teen romance. I thought it was very relateable, as a teen girl, with the inclusion of Bella's emotions and actions; although, it takes on an otherworldly feel in the inclusion of the vampire boyfriend. I will most certainly read the other books in the Saga.

I really don't know how to say what a good writer Stephanie Meyer really is? Unbelievably brilliant doesn't even cover it.

In New Moon Bella struggles when edward suddenly decides to leave giving the impression that he no longer loved her.

How wrong could someone be???

In his absence Bella spends time with Jacob Black because of his suprising talent to rid her of the pain from the gaping hole in her chest.

When Jacob get's sick and changes bella doesn't know what to think.

What's his secret?
Why can't he stand vampires so much?????

It's Isabella Swan's 18th birthday, and unlike the rest of her high school classmates, she's been dreading this milestone for months. Once Bella turns 18, she'll officially be older than her beloved Edward Cullen, who is 17 and will remain so until the end of time. Dazzlingly handsome Edward, like the rest of his family, is undead, a vampire destined to remain young and beautiful forever...while mortals like Bella age and perish all around them.

Following a frightening encounter with some of Edward's siblings after she cuts her finger on wrapping paper (the Cullens pledge to hunt only wild animals, but the smell of human blood can send them into a frenzy), Edward grows increasingly distant with Bella. Finally, he drops a bombshell --- he is leaving Bella forever, finally embracing his vampire characteristics and no longer, as he tells her, "'pretending to be something I'm not.'" Disappearing suddenly into a dark and moonless wood, Edward leaves Bella utterly alone and despondent: "I hoped that I was fainting, but, to my disappointment, I didn't lose consciousness. The waves of pain that had only lapped at me before now reared high up and washed over my head, pulling me under."

Bella drowns in her pain for months, resurfacing only when her father threatens to send her to see a psychologist or to live with her mother. Desperate not to forget Edward, Bella rekindles a friendship with Jacob Black, a large, hard-edged boy with a tendency to live life recklessly. Jacob lives on the area's Indian reservation, whose inhabitants loathe the vampires for reasons that become increasingly clear as Bella's friendship with Jacob deepens. Bella's thrill-seeking adventures with Jake, though, attract attention, leading Bella back to Edward --- and to a new threat neither one of them ever anticipated.

Stephenie Meyer's first novel about Bella and Edward, TWILIGHT, offered readers an exciting new entry in the field of vampire fiction. With NEW MOON, the second part in a projected trilogy, Meyer deepens and enriches her mythology, introducing new families and races that complicate Bella and Edward's story. Bella reflects, "Could a world really exist where ancient legends went wandering around the borders of tiny, insignificant towns, facing down mythical monsters?...Was there anything sane or normal at all, or was everything just magic and ghost stories?"

Edward vanishes in short order and only reappears shortly before the Gothic extravaganza near the book's end. In the middle, the story sometimes drags, and readers may long for the vampires' return. The events of NEW MOON, though, will leave Meyer's many fans breathless for the sequel, as Bella finally understands everything that will be at stake if she makes the ultimate choice to give up her humanity and live, like the vampires, forever.

Twilight is my favorite book, so I naturally loved New Moon. Stephenie Meyer has done it again. My copy of New Moon is battered and worn. I know Ive read it at least six times since febrary. It is fantastic.

Their love declared, Edward and Bella are together.But after Bella's disasterous birthday party Edward decides it's to dangerous to be together, so he and his familiy leave. Bella is left in a zombie like state, and befriends Jacob Black, a werewolf, who saves her from the wrath of Laurent and Victoria. After a cliff diving incident and one of Alice's uncertain visions Edward thinks Bella dead and goes to Italy to ask the Voultri to end his life. Bella and Alice race to Italy to stop him.

I loved this book, but when Edward left I cried and after I read the book twice I skipped chapter three five times. If your a fan of Twilight you'd deffinatly love this book!

In New Moon, our star-crossed lovers, Bella Swan and Edward Cullen... break up?  Yes, that is what I said.

Edward is terrified of the possibility of possibly hurting Bella in the future, and tells Bella that they can no longer be together. He then leaves without telling her where he is going.  Bella is so devastated that she sinks into a deep state of depression.  Her sadness and broken heart seriously made me wish I could jump through the pages, find Edward, and make him come back.

So, what does a girl with a strange attraction to danger do when her vampire boyfriend breaks her heart?  She befriends Jacob Black, Indian Werewolf, who helps her find reasons to smile again all while falling in love with her himself.  She also finds a reason (I won't say what it is) to do scary and dangerous things on purpose leading to even more of those famous Bella trip-ups.

In the end of the book, our lovers reconnect and discover that even though they were apart, they never stopped thinking about each other.  This shows Edward that it will be impossible for him to stay away from Bella and vows to stay by her side.

I thought this was a great sequel to Twilight.  It really stirred up my emotions through its first-person point of view making me feel what Bella was feeling.  I was so betrayed when Edward left and thrilled when he returned.  However, unlike Bella, I was secretly rooting for Jacob to win her heart throughout the book.  Poor guy.

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 could ever 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 bestseller 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 twist. Passionate, riveting, and full of surprising twists and turns, this vampire love saga is well on its way to literary immortality.
