"Meyer has, like one of her vampires, turned into something rare and more than merely human... People do not want to just read Meyer's books; they want to climb inside them and live there." (TIME)

"A literary phenomenon." (The New York Times)

"In this brief companion to the Twilight Saga, Emma Galvin’s smoky voice draws us a striking portrait of Bree Tanner’s precarious final days as part of a newborn vampire army that was created to kill a specific enemy. Stephenie Meyer’s vampires are at their strongest when they’re new, but they’re also at their thirstiest and most uncontrollable. Galvin deftly follows Bree’s wild swings between fear of her barbarous companions, the distraction of intense thirst, and her longing to trust Diego, the first real friend of her second life. Galvin also delivers a fine performance of the supporting characters - Diego’s slight accent, Jane’s cold monotone, the other newborns’ confusion and rage. All in all, a satisfying listen for fans of the series." (AudioFile Magazine)

As a Twilight fan I enjoyed reading this mini story depicting the life of the vampire who the Cullen's tried to rescue from Victoria's Army in the film Eclipse. Well worth the read if you enjoyed the Twilight films/books.

It is a great side story that fills in the blanks in the Eclipse novel through Bree's eyes instead of Bella's.

Yes I did grow to love Bree - Although I was aware of her fate, I found myself willing her to survive.

To be honest, I was about to give this book 3.5 stars, just barely 4 stars. At first, a lot of it was pointless and I just didn't really care much for the story. Then, I got to the part when the newborn vampires clash with the Cullen family in Eclipse and I loved it, loved seeing how the stories interspersed and loved seeing it from Bree's perspective.
I kinda hoped that because Stephenie was writing from a wilder character's perspective that she would stray from her usual writing style and it would surpass my expectations. Unfortunately, the fighting scenes could've been better executed and the development between characters a bit slower. It's a pity Bree's story wasn't a novel. I really think the story would be much more of a success D:

It was really interesting to read about the newborn vampires. You look at the Cullen family, civilized with the humans and in many ways flawless. But then, you look at this newborn army of vampires and they're wild and fierce, merciless when getting to what they desire most, which is human blood. It is incredible about how much is kept from the newborn vampires. They live in fear of human's stereotypes on vampires - burning in sunlight, getting staked and recoiling from garlic. They have not mastered what skills they've been given and all they feel is getting to what they want and doing it in such reckless ways, that the Volturi are required to come around.
I absolutely love Bree. She did not choose to be a newborn vampire. She was "born" into a place where she was required to be on the bad side, against her better judgement and it was really sad. To know that she had so much potential in her, and so much willingness to be good, that she couldv'e been something.

Before I write this review, I think I'd better state my position on The Twilight Saga. I LOVE the books but I am well-aware that they are not examples of quality writing. I like the atmosphere, the plot, the characters. I do not like the way they are written and do not consider Ms Meyer a good writer. I would have rated all 4 books as 5 stars for enjoyment and 3 for writing. Hasn't stopped me reading them over and over, so she has got something right and I acknowledge that. Just wanted to be clear that as a fan, I see the flaws of the series and do not give it praise where it's not due.

So, with that out of the way, Bree Tanner. I was always going to buy it, because I expected more of the same things that I enjoyed from the other four books. Well, I was right but I got all that and more. The quality of the writing has seriously improved! The word choice is better, the flow is better, the characters are more fully fleshed out. A bonus that I wasn't expecting at all!

Before I started reading, I wondered whether knowing Bree's fate (from Eclipse) already would spoil it for me. It didn't at all. If anything, it made me more engaged with the story. I really wanted her to make the most of her "short, second life". It is all told from Bree's point of view a short while after she has been turned into a vampire against her will. She is with all the other newborns but she is sitting back, keeping out of trouble, trying to get a sense of what is happening to her. We meet Riley and get a better feel for his character. We also meet two of the other newborns, Diego and Fred, both of whom end up being important to Bree's attempt to survive. Their characters are quite a highlight.
