Book Review: The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner

The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephenie Meyer

The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner (The Twilight Saga, #3.5)
by Stephenie Meyer

3 out of 5 stars

It is definitely interesting to see this completely different perspective into the vampire world of Twilight. I like that it broadens the world-building and creates even more meaning behind the way the Cullens choose to live without killing humans. I think that Bella doesn’t quite realize just how unique the Cullens are in their morality. Seeing this other perspective of the way other vampires live is definitely eye-opening.

However, I didn’t really connect with Bree that much. I liked her okay, but I actually liked Freaky Fred better. He only has two or three lines of dialogue, but he made more of an impression on me. haha! I wanted Bree to escape in the end though. It’s such a bittersweet ending.

I thought the relationship between Bree and Diego was sweet, but it was just too quick and easy for them to fall in love. I mean, I understand it’s a novella, so there’s not a lot of room for a bunch of development. But it just left me wanting more.

I liked the part with the Volturi revealing their true intentions. Victoria and Riley are both truly disgusting and devious. So many chilling villains in this book!
