Book Spotlight: The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner

The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephenie Meyer

Review by Tiffany, Librarian, Rincon Valley & Sebastopol

Having read all the books in Meyer's Twilight series, I anxiously awaited the release of The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner.  I didn't remember the minor character of Bree in Eclipse, but I was still curious about this novella. 

Bree Tanner was made into a vampire as part of Victoria's army.  She is told very little about being a vampire or why she was created.  She lives in constant fear because other vampires that she lives with are killed in fits of anger quite regularly.  One night while she is hunting, she starts talking to Diego, another newborn with more experience.  She instantly trusts Diego and together they figure out that they aren't being told the whole truth about their existence.

While I enjoyed Meyer's new book, it was really too short to have much substance.  It was interesting to hear how the newborns were treated before they fought the Cullens.  If you are a diehard Twilight fan, you don't want to miss Meyer's newest book.  It's so short you will finish in no time at all!

New book from Stephenie Meyer!
