The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: Stephenie Meyer

Obviously any Twilight Series reader knows the ending of this book.

It’s no mystery.

When I was reading the author’s reasons for writing this short novella and her thoughts on it, I was struck by her saying that in the end, she so desperately wanted Bree to live. She wished more than anything that she could keep her alive, but that was impossible. Her story had already been told in Eclipse, the ending written years ago.

I doubted that in such a short book, I would feel the same. I figured her attachment came from personally writing the character. Yet I read the book with an open mine and in the end – I did indeed feel that same rush of desire for her to live. As I neared the end of the book, I was sad because I know how her story ended. (I was also quite attached to Diego as well)

Was it the best book I’ve ever read? Nope. But it was a nice afternoon read (it’s less than 200 pages – a novella)

It also got me wanting to re-read Eclipse, which I guess was the entire point!

Here is an awesome thing, from now until July 7, 2010 you can read the book for free at

Pretty awesome šŸ™‚

Amazon Description:
Fans of The Twilight Saga will be enthralled by this riveting story of Bree Tanner, a character first introduced in Eclipse, and the darker side of the newborn vampire world she inhabits. In another irresistible combination of danger, mystery, and romance, Stephenie Meyer tells the devastating story of Bree and the newborn army as they prepare to close in on Bella Swan and the Cullens, following their encounter to its unforgettable conclusion.

I’m a little iffy on what star rating. I’m biased because I love the series… soooo… what to give it….

okay, I’m going to give it 4 stars just in honor of the series (make sure to read after Eclipse) and recommend it.
