Sink your teeth into a brand new novella from Stephenie Meyer…coming in June 2010

Posted on 13 April 2010 by Phillipa Mitchell

“The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner”

IN HER FIRST BOOK FOR ALMOST TWO YEARS, STEPHENIE MEYER RETURNS TO THE WORLD OF ECLIPSE…

Fans of the Twilight Saga will be enthralled by the riveting story of Bree Tanner, a newborn vampire introduced in Eclipse, and the darker side of the world she inhabits. In another irresistible combination of danger, mystery and romance, the novella chronicles the newborn vampire army’s journey as they prepare to close in on Bella Swan and the Cullens, following their encounter to its unforgettable conclusion.

The novella was originally conceived as a short story for The Twilight Saga: The Official Guide. “I’m as surprised as anyone about this novella,” said Stephenie Meyer. “It was simply an exercise to help me examine the other side of Eclipse. I thought the Guide would be a good fit for my Bree story. However, the story grew longer than I anticipated.”

The character Bree not only features prominently in the book Eclipse, but in the upcoming movie The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which will be released in South Africa on 30 June 2010. Director David Slade, who read a draft of the novella in preparation for filming, said, “I think fans are going to love the fascinating details involved in the loves, fears and actions of an emerging vampire.”

The book will also be available to be read for free on a dedicated website from June to July 5 2010
