Publisher's Summary

Fans of The Twilight Saga will be enthralled by the riveting story of Bree Tanner, a character 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 an unforgettable conclusion.
'I'm as surprised as anyone about this novella,' said Stephenie Meyer. 'When I began working on it in 2005, it was simply an exercise to help me examine the other side of Eclipse, which I was editing at the time. I thought it might end up as a short story that I could include on my website. Then, when work started on The Twilight Saga: The Official Guide, I thought the Guide would be a good fit for my Bree story. However, the story grew longer than I anticipated, until it was too long to fit into the Guide.'

Deeply moving

Anyone reading this story will of course know how it ends. Readers of Eclipse will all be familiar with Bree's name, but once you read her story, it makes her death so much harder to bear. The world she enhabbits is dark and violent and the matter-of-fact way she tells it makes her story all the more tragic. It made me cry and I'll never be able to read about her death in Eclipse without crying in the future.

Love the series and the book adds another depth

What did you like most about The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner?

It gives great insight into what is happening away from Bella and the others that is only briefly noted in papers and news in the book, I believe this book was written to help the films, a great short story that only adds to the series as s while.

Any additional comments?

If you know the other books you already know the outcome, but that didn't impact the read, I have read all the books and listened to the audio books, the reader was good but I was wishing for the same narrator as the other audio books in the series.
