Review: New Moon

I don’t have a whole lot to say about New Moon, the second book in Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga, that I didn’t say about Twilight.

New Moon explores the world of Twilight more. We find out more about the balance of power in the town where the main characters live and we learn a little more about other vampires.  We get to know the third member of the saga’s love triangle, Jacob the werewolf.

And we get to suffer with Bella as she deals with the stresses being in love with an immortal seventeen year old.

Meyer does a good job balancing it all out, and keeping the pages turning, but it’s a hard ride for Bella. Meyer makes the reader sympathize with her, which is to say you relive all the times you broke up with a vampire.  The whole thing was draining for me, but in a good way.

If you liked Twilight, and I did, New Moon has a lot of the same things going for it, without anything getting stale.

Strongly recommended.
