Product 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 finally finished! After a long two weeks of trying to read this and being busy, I have finally finished this lovely novella. Stephenie Meyer does an amazing job again, like always. She gives such descriptive and poetic detail that you can picture what is going on without it acctually being a movie. The book gives insight into a regular newborn's mind. You get the mind workings of a intelligent newborn but she still has the instincts as any other newborn. Just think blood and nothing else. Bree looks out to give the reader an also generic view of a newborn army. Constant fighting, tearing apart of others, killing of one another, only newborn instincts, and oblivious to the
obvious. Of course, along with fighting, Meyer gives a small romance in this novella. Mostly between Bree and her new friend, Diego. (The other being between Victoria and Riley...sort of.) I will not say what

happens between them but if you know the ending to Eclipse, you can see where this story leads to. I loved this book a lot, it gives all the genres I love: horror, romance, action/adventure, comedy. I recommend anyone who loves the Twilight Saga or even

 just vampires to read this because it is more vampy than Twilight was because of the newborns. However, there is another character in here that does survive (I will not say who), who I think should have a story of SOME kind or runs into the Cullens in Breaking Dawn. It would have been a great way to weave that person back in there and see why they acted the way they did and how they got to be the way they are. But, that's my personal opinion. Here are just two quotes about Bree talking about Diego that I absolutely loved!
"Diego grinned at me, his face beautiful with light, and suddenly, with a deep lurch in my stomach, I realized that the whole BFF thing was way off the mark. It was just that fast....But even though Diego looked like his normal self again -not made of blazing light anyway- I knew he would never look the same to me. That tingly sensation in the pit of my stomach was still there. I had a feeling it would be there permanently." -Bree talking about falling in love with Diego
"Bree: You know, I don't remember much, but I do remember thinking there was nothing more powerful on this planet than just plain old hunger. Turns out, thirst is worst.



Diego: Sing it, sister!" -Diego and Bree talking about being human (Quotes from Twilight Wiki)
I give this book a four out of four for excellent writing and grammar, and the plotline. Even though I wished it ended in a certain way instead of the way it did, I still loved the book and recommend all the Twilight lovers and vampire lovers to read this book. It is a short and good read, even though it took me two weeks, and watch Eclipse.
P.S. I wished they would ahve put Diego into the movie so I could get a visual of what he might have looked like because it was hard to imagine him.  Plus, I wanted Bree to have a little romance in the movie, she seemed scared constantly in the movie.
P.S.S. Stephenie Meyer has a playlist like all her books for The Second Short Life of Bree Tanner, so please check it out here. It's really good!


Peace and Fangs,
