Fans of The Twilight Saga will be enthralled by this riveting story of Bree Tanner, a character first 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.

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?

My review:

At first I had no idea of what could really happen in this book except the battle between the Cullens with the shape-shifters vs. the newborn army with Riley and Victoria. But, as any enthusiastic Twilight fan, I decided to buy it because, after all, I had nothing to lose. Plus, one day before the purchase, I saw the Eclipse clip with "Introducing Bree Tanner" and I thought of it as an interesting idea.
But I was enthralled by Bree Tanner's story. It was amazing. I finished the book in three days! (and that's because I had a lot to do every day, or I could've finished it in 2 hours maximum). It was amazing to see Bree's point of view. When we thought, in Eclipse, that Bree's just another bad vamp, Bree convinced us she really isn't bad. She's forced to. And she's still on her principle: Hunt humans that Earth doesn't really need. Even if she's shy and always hides in a corner, near Fred (who has the ability to keep people away from him), she meets a true friend in Diego, who has the same principles as her. It's funny how they have their own "Super Secret Ninja Club". I liked that part.

Anyway, I give this book 5/5 stars. Congratulations to Stephenie Meyer for another great Twilight Saga book.



  1. Hey, just found your site, its great. I enjoyed Bree Tanner too, but I didn't think it was her best. I would of preferred a book about one of the Cullens or one of the werewolves I think.

    Take care :)

  2. I enjoyed seeing how non-vegetarian newborns behaved and lived, but I think Twilight fans should be aware that there is no super romantic love story in this like there is in the other books. People who are drawn to the sage for the romance might be disappointed.

    Also, I couldn't stand the way she kept referring to Edward as being a red-head. He did not have red hair! It was described in the other books as being "bronze" which is a golden brown. Sorry to get picky, but it got annoying after the third time Bree said it.

  3. Ohh I haven´t read the book ..But I am so exited to read ..hope is really interest it!!!

  4. I already read it ..i love the book!1 really enjoy it
