This is a MUST read for any Twilight fan! This is the story of Bree Tanner, who was featured as a newborn vampire in Eclipse (the best of the series in my opinion). Bree is the young vampire that surrenders during the battle between the Cullen's/Wolfpack and Victoria's army of newborn vampires. I learned some interesting things in the book, such as other uses for vampire venom. Bree's short second life proves that being a vampire is not all it is hyped to be. Being a newborn is a very dangerous existence.
I really enjoyed the chance to get back into the Twilight saga that this novella offered. It was fun, fast paced, and offered views of the Cullen's and Bella from an outsider. Fortunately, I had remembered Bree from Eclipse and that Bella was fascinated by Bree because she wondered if she would also beome a blood thirsty uncontrolled newborn when she turned. I can only hope that Stephenie Meyer will choose to write more of these novellas in the future based on some of the outskirt vampires such as James, Laurent or Aro (which could be an entire series based on his age). If you are a fan get this book!

I loved this book. A great story about a newborn vampire who goes through so much in just such a very short time. Had me turning the pages constantly. Hopefully Stephenie will write a book about a vampire we meet in there named Fred. I want to know more about Fred and what happens to him so much! If you love Twilight this is a great book, if you're new to the books I suggest you read this after you finish Eclipse or else it won't make much sense at all. Again great job, I love it!

All I can say is: WOW
This book blew me away in only one sitting. Totally engaging with no chapters at all, I could not bring myself to put it down even for a few minutes. I love reading books like this that completely capture your attention. Its a keeper for sure for anyone who loves the twilight saga. Honestly, I wished the origional 4 books were as fast moving as this one was.
We ge there a glimps into the life of Bree Tanner. A 3 month old newborn whos forced to live by the rules set forth by "her". They are told the sunlight will kill them, and are basically brainwashed into obeying all of "her" instructions.
When Bree befriends Diego, they discover that the sunlight doesnt actually harm them, they soon realize they are being lied to by Riley (the group leader) and "her".
NO SPOILERS HERE: anyways, the Twilight fans already know what ultimately happens to Bree in the bittersweet ending. It was interesting to learn to how the re-borns act and think, and why the Cullens' eyes are yellow, and also why Bellas blood is so irresistable.
Hands down, I loved this book.
