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 its unforgettable conclusion.


This is a short novella that follows the third book in the Twilight quadrilogy, and it’s an interesting book - more because of its concepts than the actual story itself. It’s the first time we see events in Forks from a perspective other than Bella’s, and the first time we really see vampires behaving badly and why they do so. I did like that we went on Bree’s journey dispelling the myths of vampires, but equally, it just reminded me how annoying these vampires are that nothing really hampers them. Back to normality and the final book in the series, please.

Rating: 2 / 5
