The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner

The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner
by Stephenie Meyer

Bree doesn't remember much of her past, but she remembers every second of the time since she was turned.  She knows that there are some to avoid, one to stick close to, and no one to trust.  No one until she starts talking to Diego.

Now she's finding out all kinds of things about her own kind that she didn't know.  And she's finding out that the world is more dangerous than even she realized.

You may know how Bree's story ends, but here's what happened before that.

Final thoughts:  On its own, Bree's story is interesting.  It's not nearly as fleshed out as Meyer's previous work, so it felt like a different author wrote it in some ways.  Other things are quite familiar.  The only really annoying part was when Bree's story and Bella's came together.  There was too much work to try and get the puzzle to fit right, like putting a square peg in a round hole.  It felt forced, like Meyer was trying to explain too many little things from Eclipse while telling Bree's story: things that didn't really need explaining and actually changed what I thought had happened.  

Rating: 4/5
