This week our avid reader Miriam brings us her review of a novella written by Stephenie Meyer that is also part of the Twilight Saga. The short second life of Bree Tanner is not so well-known as the rest of the saga but Miriam says it’s addicitive so we’ll have to take her word for it…

The short second life of Bree Tanner is a Twilight saga novella centred on the newborn vampire Bree, who was introduced in Eclipse. The novella tells the story of Bree Tanner’s life as a newborn vampire and her experiences as a member of the Seattle newborn vampire army.

Bree goes out hunting and she meets Diego (another newborn) and they fall in love. Together they learn that it is possible for them to go out in the sunlight (contrary to what Riley, another vampire created by evil Victoria, has told them).

Diego confronts Riley about this and doesn’t return leaving Bree very frightened and confused. She asks Riley about Diego and he tells her that he is “running an errand” for him and that they will be reunited….

When you read this book you understand the other books better. You get a new insight into Edward’s character… you see that he isn’t the kind of person that he seems. This book isn’t a romantic book, it is more a vampire book with action scenes… but there is also a love story… for all of these things it is my favorite book in the saga. I recommend this book for everyone who loves love storyies and magical scenes.

 Some questions for you:
1. What do you think about Riley?
2. Do you remember the names of the Volturi members?
3. Are you interested in this book?
4. Do you think Bree will live in the end?
