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.

'I'm as surprised as anyone about this novella,' said Stephenie Meyer. 'When I began working on it in 2005, it was simply an exercise to help me examine the other side of Eclipse, which I was editing at the time. I thought it might end up as a short story that I could include on my website. Then, when work started on The Twilight Saga: The Official Guide, I thought the Guide would be a good fit for my Bree story. However, the story grew longer than I anticipated, until it was too long to fit into the Guide.

Our customer reviews

I've not read any of the other Twilight novels, though I've seen the first two movies. Still this novel seemed fairly stand alone. Not once was I lost. In fact, if I'd not seen the movies, I'd still be able to follow along easily. So if you're afraid to read this novel because you think you'll get lost, don't be. I don't even think this novel ruins it for readers who haven't read the rest of the series. In a way, I think it just fills in a gap (the other perspective from the enemy stand point). As far as the writing goes-not bad. I'm not sure really why so many people complain about it. It's not the best, and certainly not the worst. One thing though.
