Now, she hunts her own kind. Adam Brody, a shifter, needs Maya in order to track down his young niece, who was kidnapped by vampires. I loved Maya. She, in fact, cares a lot. She prefers not to kill, and when she has to she feels bad about it.
She puts others before herself. He has no problem following her rules and letting her make all the plans. The build-up to the romance took time, which I enjoyed. Will Bella be able to survive this childbirth and what exactly will she be giving birth to? Now that I've finally made my way through the entire Twilight series I can honestly say that it was the most painful teen series I have ever read. Bella's insistent whining throughout the series as well as the fact that she was so wishy-washy about wanting to be with either Edward or Jacob just grates on one's nerves.
Yes, a lot of teenage girls can be annoying, but not that consistently. Also, this book was to be aimed at teenagers I mean, how dumbed down did Meyer need to make the story? Was she trying to write it for elementary school kids? Why omit everything up to the point of pillow feathers flying? Teenagers aren't THAT naive! Moving on There is a battle scene at the end that I struggled through as it brought in a lot of extra characters that got confusing to keep track of and just got a bit boring for me. After a while I just started skimming over names figuring it wasn't really important, which for the most part I initially started this series to see what the hype was all about and once I started figured I might as well see it through to the end despite it appearing to being a waste of my time.
I wish I had never found out though because when all is said and done vampires were never meant to sparkle! A young vampire is suspected, but later the Cullens realize the there is a bit more involved than just one vampire. It's more like Bella insists on seeing Jacob despite Edward telling her that it is too dangerous. Then Edward proposes to Bella, which she hesitantly accepts.

This practically causes Jacob to lose his mind. Trying to calm him down, Bella ends up kissing him and in return finds out that she cares for him more than she realizes. Who will she end up choosing in the end? And how will the battle turn out? While Meyer's series showed improvement in the second book of the series, New Moon , I felt that this book took a step back in quality.
The focus on the love triangle was quite heavy and there was a lot of emphasis on Bella whining through the majority of the book.
This left a very sour taste in my mouth and honestly made me hesitant in wanting to carry on with book four. Younger readers may not mind this as much and will probably enjoy this title more than I did. Recommended for teens. The second novel in Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series starts off with the Cullen family throwing Bella Swan an 18th birthday party.

Luckily, Bella's boyfriend and Jasper's brother, Edward, is able to protect her. After this incident, the Cullens decide that it is safest for Bella to move away from Forks. This leaves Bella sulking and moping around. Eventually, she finds that her only way to cope with her depression is to put herself in danger as when she is in harm's way she hears Edward's voice in her head trying to stop her. She goes to Jacob Black, an old family friend, to help her out with this, and he helps her restore a couple of old motorcycles.
Jacob and her become very close as the story progresses and she discovers more and more about him including that he has a secret of his own How will this secret affect Bella's feelings for Jacob when she knows that the werewolves are the Cullen's biggest enemy? New Moon is a much stronger book than Meyer's first, Twilight.
There are not a lot of initial character descriptions to wade through, as readers are expected to have already read book one so the book starts off at a faster pace. However, there are still numerous scenes of Bella whining about how she misses Edward and how she wants to be with him, etc Many times I found myself wanting to toss the book across the room due to Bella's annoying whining, but due to the entrance of the werewolves, I was able to continue on. Jacob Black and the rest of the werewolf pack actually made this book fairly enjoyable.
Vampire Fiction for Young Adults
It's like a train wreck I can't look away from. Hybrid by Angie L. A-Argus Better Book Publishers, Emily Reed is a teenage girl who attempts suicide when her life is turned upside down by the murder of her four-year-old sister. In order to get a fresh start, her parents decide to move from Dallas, Texas to Beckley, West Virginia. She soon makes new friends and falls in love with a fit and studious boy named Maxwell Snow.
Their relationship grows to the point where Emily feels that she has found her perfect mate, until she spots Julian. He is the exact opposite of Max - rude, mean and cold hearted. Despite the difference she soon finds herself attracted by him. Things soon get more complicated as Emily finds out that both boys are Hybrids, half-vampire and half-human.
Hybrid begins slow and stays that way for about two thirds of the novel. There is almost no sign of vampires, hybrids, or anything but day-to-day school life. The story focuses more on Emily making friends and her overly sappy relationship with her new boyfriend. Emily herself is also too focused on material things and herself, which is probably true of most teenagers, but it makes her much less sympathetic to the reader.
The story does pick up in the last third of the book as Julian makes his appearance and the reader begins to see that the story is going somewhere. The Hybrid concept is also a good one and could make a fine book if it was done in more depth, unfortunately the Hybrid part of the book seemed to take a back seat to dating and hanging out with friends. Contains: Violence. Review by Bret Jordan. In this fourth installment of the Blue Bloods series, de la Cruz picks up right where the last book left off with three different storylines. The first follows Schuyler and Oliver, who are on the run from The Conclave, as there is doubt about her story concerning the death of her grandfather and former conclave leader Lawrence.
The second follows Bliss, who finds herself sharing her body with her father who is Lucifer, as she desperately tries to get help. The third follows Mimi Force, who is working with the Venators seeking the Watcher, and planning her bonding with Jack Force. There is a continuation of the love triangle between Schuyler, her human conduit Oliver, and Jack Force. Fans of Schuyler Van Alen might be disappointed that the lead character is sharing so much book time with Bliss and Mimi.
I found it actually to be a good thing as it allowed the author to make Mimi an interesting, evolving character on her own rather than just an annoying foil to Schuyler. One thing that improves the story considerably over the first three books in the series is that Melissa de la Cruz does a much better job of tying up storylines but still leaves the reader wanting more. Sunshine is the drama student that wants to date the most popular boy in school, whereas Rayne is into the goth scene and won't be caught dead in a pair of pants!
Rayne is all excited about a new goth club in town, Club Fang, and tells Sunshine she has to go with her and also must dress accordingly. In her absence, Sunshine is approached by an Orlando Bloom look-alike that she figures can't possibly be talking to her. She is flabbergasted, but it's so loud in the club that she can't tell what he is trying to say to her. He leads her outside of the club in order for them to be able to hear each other. Her sister comes running out a minute later and sees what has happened and realizes that there was a case of mistaken identity.
She knows who this Magnus guy is, he's a And not only that, but Now what will Sunshine do? I have to say that this has to be one of the funniest teen books I have read in a long time!
