Meyer, Stephanie. New Moon

Meyer, Stephanie. New Moon [#2].Little Brown, 2006 [0-316-16019-9//978-0-316-16019-3]
Book two of this series starts off with Edward and his family of vampires have moved away for various reasons and Bella, who is head-over-heels in love with Edward is crushed. The first third of this 563 page book is slow with Bella trying to deal with her loss and begins to get closer to a long-time friend from the reservation. Jake, this friend, has started hanging out with a strange group and is changing himself. Slowly she figures out that they have become a band of werewolves. These werewolves are committed to clearing the area of vampires.... one of which from book one has come back to kill Bella. The action suddenly picks up as Edward misunderstands that Bella has died and he can't live without her. The last part of a book involves Edward's family and Bella from rescuing him from getting himself killed. After that situation is resolved they come back to Washington and Bella realizes that there is major conflict between Edward (and the vampires) and Jake (and the werewolves. This is a good continuation of the series but some readers of the first book may put it down during the slow initial part of this story.
