I stuck my finger under the edge of the paper and jerked it under the tape. 'Shoot,' I muttered when the paper sliced my finger. A single drop of blood oozed from the tiny cut. It all happened very quickly then. 'No!' Edward roared ...Dazed and disorientated, I looked up from the bright red blood pulsing out of my arm - and into the fevered eyes of the six suddenly ravenous vampires. For Bella Swan, there is one thing more important than life itself: Edward Cullen. But being in love with a vampire is more dangerous than Bella ever could have imagined. Edward has already rescued Bella from the clutches of an evil vampire but now, as their daring relationship threatens all that is near and dear to them, they realise their troubles may just be beginning more

Review Text

All is not well between demon-magnet Bella and Edward Cullen, her vampire Romeo. An innocent papercut at Edward's house puts Bella in grave danger when various members of the Cullen family can barely resist their hunger at the smell of blood. The Cullens promptly leave town, afraid of endangering Edward's beloved, and Bella sinks into an overwhelming depression. Months later, she finally emerges from her funk to rebuild her life, focusing on her friendship with besotted teen Jacob from the reservation. Bella's unhealthy enthrallment to Edward leads her into dangerous and self-destructive behavior despite her new friends, and supernatural complications are bound to reappear. Bella's being hunted by an evil vampire, and Jacob's adolescent male rage turns out to be incipient lycanthropy: It seems many Quileute Indians become werewolves in the presence of vampires, their natural enemies. Psychic miscommunications and angst-ridden dramatic gestures lead to an exciting page-turner of a conclusion drenched in the best of Gothic romantic excess. Despite Bella's flat and obsessive personality, this tale of tortured demon lovers entices. (Fantasy. 13-16) (Kirkus Reviews)show more

Review quote

The sexiest vampire tale for years arrived in Stephenie Meyer's TWILIGHT, about teenage Bella's chaste romance with a beautiful vampire boy. Their intensely erotic feelings are endangered by more predatory types. Guaranteed to suck in sulky 13+ girls for hours. THE TIMES Will keep readers madly flipping the pages of Meyer's tantalizing debut. Publishers Weeklyshow more

This is the second book of the Twilight Saga, and honestly, i loved it more than the first book. New Moon took alot of time from me to finish. I just would stop it, read another book, then read some of it, then stop it again, then read another book, and so on. But now, i read over 300 pages in 2 days. I LOVED it. I loved it at the beginning too, it was just that i felt lazy to continue reading it. If you havent read the first book, i advise you not to continue reading, in case i might spoil anything for you. Anyways, what i loved about this book, is how Jacob had a HUGE part. Im Team Jacob, and i just love Jacob, and i was so excited throughout the book because all of the time i was reading about him and Bella. It was different than the first book because this time, it wasnt all about the Vampires. It was more about the (SPOILER) were-wolves. Which i LOVED. Gaah i imagine them to be so hot in my head. hehehhe. What kind of bored me out, was how loooong it took for Edward to show up. I mean, everybody obviously knew he was going to come back, but it took soo long. So it kind of pissed me off when i read how depressed Bella was over and over again. After Edward does show up, maaan it was ADDICTING! The book was sooo exciting and i just couldnt put it down. So i rated this book a 5 because, i really did truly love it. Overall, it was an amazing book, and if u havent read or started the Twilight Saga, you should ;) Happy Reading Maji Bookshelf more

After reading the first book of the "Twilight" saga I have high hopes for the second book to exceed the success of the first one but surely I felt let down. The beginning of the book is at it's most exciting and compelling but as it went on the middle part started to drag and remembering asking myself whether it was still well worth the effort to finish it. Compared to twilight this book is no match, with plots that needs mending, main characters needs rebuffing. Edward decided to leave Bella after her disastrous 18th birthday celebration at the Cullen's house. She became depressed to the point of being catatonic and still continues to be a danger magnet. Re-introduce into the picture is Jacob Black, the boy that Bella met at La Push during a beach party. A book of hope, love, forgiveness and friendship all in all still a good book to more

Gota go buy the next book quick! After reading Twilight and watching the movie, i read New Moon with the movie cast acting out the whole story vividly in my mind which made it even better. Only minor complain is there's not enough Edward Cullen so i'm hoping the movie director's able to cleverly compensate with more Rob Pattinson airtime to appease my thirst for the vampire. I'm falling in love with not only Edward Cullen, but more with Stephenie more
