Title: New Moon: The Graphic Novel, Volume 1 adapted & illustrated by Young Kim
Notable: Book #3 in the Twilight Graphic Novels series (incomplete series)
After a disastrous birthday part at the Cullen’s, Edward thinks that Bella will be safer without him. After he leaves, Bella goes into a severe depression and is only drawn out of it by her own personal ray of sunshine, Jacob Black. While Edward is away, Victoria seeks her revenge for James’ death and the werewolves are the ones who protect Bella from danger this time.
I enjoyed seeing Jacob in this book. I prefer his character over Edward’s because he’s much more down to earth and just a really likable guy. It seems like he and Bella have more of a natural relationship, as opposed to the infatuation that’s overflowing between Edward and Bella. Towards the end of the book Laurent shows up and the wolves come to the rescue, but Bella still doesn’t know who/what they are. It leaves off with her having made it home and wondering if she and her dad will ever be safe. That’s kind of a sucky place to stop, especially when you find out what I discovered today.
After doing some research, I discovered that this is an incomplete series. Apparently the next book in the series was supposed to be released in July 2016 (or thereabouts), but it was scrapped. So yeah, I won’t be finishing this series because I can’t!
I recommend New Moon: The Graphic Novel, Volume 1 to Twilight fans as an interesting take on the story.
Rating: 3 1/2 Stars
