Publication Date: 30th September 2007, Atom, 497 pages
 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...
New Moon picks up a short time after Twilight finishes and it is Bella's Seventeenth Birthday. What should be a happy event turns into a bloodbath, well not literally but blood is split when Bella injuries herself. That is when things start to get worse, Jasper tries to attack her due to his blood lust not under control, which in turn shows Edward that with him and his family around Bella is not safe. So, he make a heartbreaking decision to leave Forks with his family in tow. Although, they don't completely agree to this decision, they know Edward means well and decide to leave also.
Bella doesn't know how to react and is numb with the pain of losing the only person she has ever loved, so days turn into months and before she knows it is four months later. Charlie has seen that time hasn't helped and he makes the decision to send her back to Jacksonville, back to her mother. Though after talking to him, Bella tells him she will try to make more of an effort and starts to fall back into her life before she met Edward, although it isn't that easy, nothing is.
Jacob plays a bigger part of the book, than the previous one given that Bella spends more and more time in La Push with him and the wolf pack. You can quite quickly tell that Jacob likes Bella, though she doesn't realise it, even with all the hints he drops but before long things lead back to Edward. This book is more werewolf centred given the wolf pack become a part of Bella everyday life, even saving her from the vampire who appeared in the first book.

Although, Bella seems to doing well on the outside, she isn't over Edward at all, she begins to make some really bad choices in attempt to still hold a piece of him with her, but it doesn't turn out the way she hoped it would. When a miscommunication turns into a life and death situation, Bella puts everything on the line to save the only person she loved and still does even after he left her. It shows that no matter the amount of time, distance or situation, they will always love each other, regardless of what others think.
New Moon is a great addiction to the Twilight Saga Series, with an action packed book, it is fast paced and draws you in the storyline. It has love triangles, mending families, fast cars and heartbreaking decision, that delivers everything you want in a book and more.
If I had to sum this book up in three words, they would be Thrilling, Exciting and Amazing.
