I really enjoyed this book. It had many of the elements I loved about the first, with the romance and the rescuing and the supernatural, etc.
Basic plot--the Cullens skip town due to a stressful blood-exposure incident, and Bella's heart is broken. She goes zombie for a few months, and then she starts getting close to Jacob Black. And man, I was actually rooting for the two of them to get together in the middle, there. But nothing's ever normal for Bella, and Jacob is not an exception. Then everything goes to hell when Bella decides to go cliff diving and the Cullens make their reappearance. Very exciting.
