But it couldn’t have come at a better time, since a couple vampires with less scruple about drinking human blood have moved into the area.And especially since one of those werewolves is Victoria, mate of the late James, whose idea of revenge is to sink her teeth into Bella’s throat.but he is more of a background figure in that book.) In some ways, I like Jacob more than Edward: Jacob seems to have more personality, which makes him less one-dimensional, and he is an overall good guy.

Bella uses him as a means of distraction more so than viewing him as a genuine friend.
Case in point: as soon as one character appears and fills Bella in on Edward’s doings, Bella forgets about Jacob and takes off after her vampire love interest.
in new moon edward cullen leaves bella and while she is gone jacob black helps mend her heart, then at the edward comes back after trying to comit suicide because he thought that bella was dead after his future seeing sister, Alice "see's" Bella jumping off a cliff!
Now continues with a tale of post-breakup depression, extreme sports, and a pack of teen werewolves in the throes of lycanthro-puberty.
In the Quileute tribe, werewolves are a defense against vampires.
The latest outbreak of lycanthropy seems to have been triggered by the Cullens, though they don’t hunt people and – let’s face it – they’re gone.
Aside from Jacob’s personality, the other reason why I viewed him as the book’s saving grace was the sympathy Jacob generates.
Make no mistake: Bella treats Jacob horribly (in my opinion).
This also elicits character sympathy for Jacob as he’s just too nice to be treated this way but he’s also seemingly too nice to call out Bella’s cattiness.
Again, this might be purposely intended to portray Bella as an immature, indecisive teen, but it earns her no applause from me.
