Great short story!

Customer review by Nursing

I loved this story! It gives you the Eclipse story from the newborn's point of view. Their blood thirst, their thoughts and all the lies Riley told them about being vampires are in this book. Yes, its still very much a Twilight saga book...a true fan would remember Bree from Eclipse. I would have liked the book to start with Bree getting turned into a vampire, but she has a flashback about how it happened, so that's ok. Could have been longer. By the end, I got attached to Bree and wished her life had ended differently. Loved it!

I'm 31 yrs. old and the mother of 2 boys and I love all things TWILIGHT. So when I found this book online I had to read it. You can read the entire book online through July 5th for Free! There's a link to it on Stephanie Meyers' official website or just by going to I'm still going to buy the book so I can add it to my collection, but at least I didn't have to wait to read it! It's a great book. I read it in one sitting.

I'm wondering about how many more twilight books are coming out & what are all the names of them.
by an anonymous customer 6/4/2010

  • Yes this is another Twilight book. It parallels Eclipse. It is a book about the newborns perspective.

  • This is a novella (which is AKA for a short story)this is a spin off of the 3rd book in the twilight series Eclipse. If you read the book eclipse this story is about one of the new born vampires named Bree Tanner and about her life. But this book was writen after theother twilight books the books are: 1.Twilight 2.New Mon 3.Eclipse 4. Breaking Dawn then "The Short Second Life Of Bree Tanner" came out Stephenie Meyer was writing a story called ''Midnight Sun" which was Twilight told form Edward's point of view instead of Bella's but was never finished but you can read the first 12 chapters on Stephenie Meyer's website as for future books that is unclear

  • Currently there are four books in the Twilight series and one short story that was written afterwards. Stephanie Meyer was working on another book written in the eyes of Edward; however portions of the book were leaked and Stephanie abandoned it - understandably frustrated. She explained her feelings about this on her website and posted what she had written on her website - which can be read for free. The names of the books available are: Twilight New Moon Eclipse Breaking Dawn The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner and the one that never made it, but can be found on Stephanie's website: Midnight Sun Hope this helps!

  • Right now, there are a total of 4 books that have been published: Twilight New Moon Eclipse Breaking Dawn Stephenie has the 5th book on an indeffinet hold, which is very unfortunate to a very ungrateful person that has not been named. Anyhow, the fifth book is called "Midnight Sun" written in the prospect of Edward.

  • This is a shorter novel written to show the other side of the story. At first this was not meant to be on its own, but it was to long to add to the guide book. Only Stephaine knows if there will be more, but for now no. This book goes along with book 3- Eclipse.

  • Right now there are 4 twilight books: 1.Twilight 2. New Moon 3.Eclipse 4. Breaking Dawn Bree Tanner is the story of the newborn vampires you read about in book 3 Eclipse. I am waiting for the author to finish Midnight Sun, which is Twilight written from Edwards perspective.

  • This is a book associated with the third book in the Saga- Eclipse. It is from the point of Bree Tanner, a newborn vampire. It goes into detail about Victoria and Riley and the plan for the attack on the Cullens. Other than this book, there are still rumors of Midnight Sun (Which is Twilight from Edward's point of view). However, it is on hold for an unknown period of time due to a leak of the first 12 chapters. For more information on the Twilight Saga you can go to: The first 12 chapters of Midnight Sun are also posted on her site. Hope this helps.

Does anyone know what this is supposed to be about???
by an anonymous customer 4/2/2010
  • This book is a lot shorter than most of the others. The story is about a girl, Bree Tanner.(She makes her appearance in the movie "Eclipse") It tells what her short life is like as a vampire. I wasn't sure about it, but love the Twilight series, and Stephenie Meyer, so I purchased it, read it, and its great!

  • It parallels Eclipse. It is the newborn vampires perspective about how they came about and what happens to them prior to their appearance in Eclipse. Well worth the read!!!

  • This is a short story about the new born vampires.They were created by Riley for Victoria's revenge toward the Cullens. It tells the story through Bree's eyes. She was the last new born to get killed by the Volturi in the movie Eclipse.

  • ok, in the eclipse book near the end there was a new vampire from the army victoria made and there was a girl named bree tanner but she died a few pages later. so this book is the voice of bree's side of the story.

  • This is what it said on Stephenie Meyer's website... "I began this story a long time ago—before Twilight was even released. Back then I was just editing Eclipse, and in the thick of my vampire world. I was thinking a lot about the newborns, imagining their side of the story, and one thing led to another. I started writing from Bree's perspective about those final days, and what it was like to be a newborn." She says more about it here:
