A short second life for Bree Tanner, indeed, but not such a short title.
The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephenie Meyer was the thirteenth book I read this year.
Now, onto the review:
This novel was very different from the rest of the Twilight Saga, because you're not dealing with the perspective of a human, nor the life style of the 'vegitarian' vampires. These vampires kill without mercy and whenever they're hungry. They believe that the sun will turn them to ashes and that they must stay indoors at all times when the sun is up. It's a surprisingly dark side to the teen series that girls (and guys - whom rock by the way) have fallen completely and irrevocably in love with.
The book was still great, don't get me wrong. It was humorous and aggravating that Bree and her fellow "newborns" don't know the Volturi and other vampire rules, but that made me realize just how much the Cullens do know and how important it is that they know it. With Riley (the ring-leader of the newborn army) keeping them in the dark - both figuratively and literally - it creates a lot more problems than it spares them.
Another thing about this book that somewhat bothered me - no Edward. Well, until the end. But his name is never mentioned. But it at the end it explains a lot as to what was going on with Bree in Eclipse that we couldn't really understand before this book.
If you want to read this book, read Eclipse first - it will kind of ruin Eclipse for you if you don't.
With eternal love and blessings,
