Werewolves, you ask? In a vampire book? Yes. In Twilight, Jacob tells Bella about the “legend” of the vampires and the werewolves and the treaty that exists in order to keep peace in the area. In New Moon, after Edward dumps Bella (for her own good, obviously), she starts hanging around with Jacob. He’s the only ray of light in her otherwise bleak world after Edward leaves, and so when he starts acting weird, it’s like deja vu all over again. The weird behavior is caused by Jacob’s transformation into a werewolf, of course, and soon Bella is stuck in the middle between these bitter enemies: her best friend and her one true love. When push comes to shove, whom will she choose?
