Bree Tanner can barely remember life before she had uncannily powerful senses, superhuman reflexes and unstoppable physical strength. Life before she had a relentless thirst for blood... life before she became a vampire.
All Bree knows is that living with her fellow newborns has few certainties and even fewer rules: watch your back, don't draw attention to yourself and, above all, make it home by sunrise or die. What she doesn't know: her time as an immortal is quickly running out.
Then Bree finds an unexpected friend in Diego, a newborn just as curious as Bree about their mysterious creator, whom they know only as "her". As they come to realize that the newborns are pawns in a game larger than anything they could have imagines, Bree and Diego must choose sides and decide whom to trust. But when everything you know about vampires is based on a lie, how do you find the truth?
I was so excited to get my hands on a copy of Fans of The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner! Finally, something new by Stephenie Meyer.
I was kind of surprised that I ended up liking Bree as much as I did. I enjoyed seeing the newborns' side of everything that went down during Eclipse. I liked seeing how a "true" vampire that drink human blood thought. She was definitely smart but naive because Riley kept the newborns in the dark about some aspects of being a vampire. Her short-lived relationship with Diego was sweet. I really liked Diego and his crazy antics such as pretending to be a ninja. Another character that was interesting was Fred. Fred's power was so cool! I kind of wish that he made an appearance in Breaking Dawn.
I always wondered why the newborn vampires agreed to attack the Cullens, so I was happy to discover that they were actually being used. I loved seeing the end of the battle through Bree's eyes. Her interaction with Carlisle, Esme, Jasper, and Edward was amazing. I am really happy that she caught on that Edward was the one who could read minds. After finishing this story, I had to go back and read the part in Eclipse that Bree was in. I liked being able to see that scene in a new light.Fans of the Twilight Saga will definitely enjoy The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. I was pleasantly surprised with how much I liked it. It is not Midnight Sun, but it will do....for now.
