Book Review: The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner

I was going through the available downloadable audiobooks when I found this: an extension off of Eclipse. Do you remember that newborn vampire that the Volturi killed at the end of the book? Yeah, it’s that Bree Tanner. It’s the short second life of Bree Tanner.

It starts out with Bree hunting in Seattle. She’s one of the careful ones, one of the ones who only feed upon the ones that won’t be missed. But unfortunately, not everybody is that careful. Not everybody listens to Riley, their leader. But on that night, Bree meets somebody that, perhaps, she can…trust: Diego, a relatively “old” vampire (with consideration to the ages of the overall group). A friendship forms, but soon they start finding out disturbing things about Riley…and about why they were made.

The actual book is pretty short — only 178 pages. Of course, we all know the ending (if you’ve read Eclipse, that is), but it’s pretty cool to see the other side of the story. Once you get to know Bree, you have to feel sorry for her. I thought it was pretty good — well, at least, I couldn’t stop listening to it. The audiobook itself was okay. It wasn’t the best, but it was easy to understand and had individual voices and stuff. If you liked the Twilight series, you would like this extension. The book is to the left, and the audiobook is to the left. 4/5 stars

You can reserve the novella at your nearest Wake County Library here, or you can download the audiobook here.

    I read this and enjoyed the quick read. By the end, I really wanted Bree to live, too bad.
