THE SHORT SECOND LIFE OF BREE TANNER
THE SHORT SECOND LIFE OF BREE TANNER
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.'
17 year old Isabella Swan moves to Forks, Washington to live with her
father she expects that her new life will be as dull as the town. But in
spite of her awkward manner and low expectations, she finds that her
new classmates are drawn to this pale, dark-haired new girl in town. But
not, it seems, the Cullen family. These five adopted brothers and
sisters obviously prefer their own company and will make no exception
for Bella. Bella is convinced that Edward Cullen in particular hates
her, but she feels a strange attraction to him, although his hostility
makes her feel almost physically ill. He seems determined to push her
away ? until, that is, he saves her life from an out of control car.
Bella will soon discover that there is a very good reason for Edward's
coldness. He, and his family, are vampires ? and he knows how dangerous
it is for others to get too close.
stuck my finger under the edge of the paper and jerked it under the
tape. 'Shoot,' I muttered when the paper sliced my finger. A single drop
of blood oozed from the tiny cut. It all happened very quickly then.
'No!' Edward roared ...Dazed and disorientated, I looked up from the
bright red blood pulsing out of my arm - and into the fevered eyes of
the six suddenly ravenous vampires. For Bella Swan, there is one thing
more important than life itself: Edward Cullen. But being in love with a
vampire is more dangerous than Bella ever could have imagined. Edward
has already rescued Bella from the clutches of an evil vampire but now,
as their daring relationship threatens all that is near and dear to
them, they realise their troubles may just be beginning ...
Edward's soft voice came from behind me. I turned to see him spring
lightly up the porch steps, his hair windblown from running. He pulled
me into his arms at once, and kissed me again. His kiss frightened me.
There was too much tension, too strong an edge to the way his lips
crushed mine - like he was afraid we had only so much time left to us.
As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious
vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself
surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose
between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob - knowing that
her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between
vampire and werewolf. With her graduation approaching, Bella has one
more decision to make: life or death. But which is which? Following the
Dawn is the long-awaited and eagerly anticipated conclusion to the
Twilight Saga! Bella has had to choose between the dark life of the
immortals and pursuing a fully human life, and now that her decision has
been made, a startling chain of events is about to unfold with
potentially devastating consequences...
