Description on GoodReads:
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.Review:
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 imagined, 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?
The idea of a novella based on the short second life of Bree Tanner did not sound very exciting to me. Bree is such a minor character in Eclipse that I really couldn't imagine what she would write about.
Yet, it was interesting to see the Cullens from an outsider's perspective.
Overall, I liked it. I did not love it but it was OK. It's a good read if you just want something to help with the wait for the next Twilight movie and if you are a fan of the series. If you are not then I don't think this is the book for you.
I really hope we find out what happened to Freaky Fred since he was the only new born that actually left and did not fight the Cullens.
