Author: Stephanie Meyer

First line: All our attempts at subterfuge had been in vain.

Why you should read this book: It's vampire versus werewolf versus vampire in a battle royale for the body, heart, soul, and life of klutzy, self-deprecating, would-be martyr Bella Swan. Bella's love for the cold, marble constant known as Edward Cullen is undiminished, but hotter- and taller-than-average werewolf Jacob Black runs a close second in the race, and meanwhile, an unknown entity is creating an army of out-of-control baby vampires, so it's only a matter of time before someone tries to eat Bella. Again. Can the Cullens and the Quileutes reach a truce long enough to defeat a common enemy, can Edward convince Bella to marry him before Bella convinces Edward to compromise his virtue with premarital sex, will Bella's sheriff father ever figure out that the town he is sworn to protect is crawling with supernatural killing machines, and would you keep reading if these kids had got it on in book one?

Why you shouldn't read this book: You figured out the entire plot of this one somewhere in the middle of the second book.
