Book Review of The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner (Twilight)

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!
