Legions of readers entranced by Twilight are hungry for more and they won't be disappointed. In New Moon, Stephenie Meyer delivers another irresistible combination of romance and suspense with a supernatural twist. The "star-crossed" lovers theme continues as Bella and Edward find themselves facing new obstacles, including a devastating separation, the mysterious appearance of dangerous wolves roaming the forest in Forks, a terrifying threat of revenge from a female vampire and a deliciously sinister encounter with Italy's reigning royal family of vampires, the Volturi. Passionate, riveting, and full of surprising twists and turns, this vampire love saga is well on its way to literary immortality.

This book is entertaining but portrays girls as needing men at their side.

New Moon is my favourite book out of the saga. Bella's heartbreak is so real, and the way Stephanie Meyer described her heartbreak made me cry! Great book.

I loved the series and couldn't read them fast enough. It was almost depressing when it was over.

I am a TwiMom and proud to admit it. I have read all 4 books at least twice! It's not just for little girls; getting past the vampire theme it's a love story and who doesn't love a love story?

I love the Twilight Saga and I am an adult reader. I find it to be entertaining and easy reading. However, I must admit, that New Moon was the weakest and hardest to get through. Not my favorite book in the series.
