The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner – Stephenie Meyer

June 27, 2010 No Comments

Summary from GoodReads.com

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.

Bree Tanner can barely remember life before she had uncannily powerful senses, superhuman reflexes and unstoppable physical strength. Life before she had a relentless thirst for blood… life before she became a vampire.

All Bree knows is that living with her fellow newborns has few certainties and even fewer rules: watch your back, don’t draw attention to yourself and, above all, make it home by sunrise or die. What she doesn’t know: her time as an immortal is quickly running out.

Then Bree finds an unexpected friend in Diego, a newborn just as curious as Bree about their mysterious creator, whom they know only as “her”. As they come to realize that the newborns are pawns in a game larger than anything they could have imagines, Bree and Diego must choose sides and decide whom to trust. But when everything you know about vampires is based on a lie, how do you find the truth?

My Review (possible spoilers)

I only have two negative things to say about this book. 1.) It was too short 2.) That Bree didn’t get to live so that we had a new “Cullen” to watch Carlisle and the family teach how to live their way.

I fell in love with the Bree, Diego and really, really would like to know what happened to Fred and his life away from the coven. Stephenie did a fantastic job of including all the great details we’ve come to expect with her building of characters and allowing us to get to know them well! While she still writes in a drawn out basic form at times that causes me to speed read I can tell an improvement in the writing and the flow of it all.

While it may be considered “Teen Fiction”, I would recommend any adult to read them and soon they’ll forget they aren’t meant for their demographic.

 Rating: 4 out of 5 (rating information here)
