The cloaked ones had not promised to let her live when we killed all the yellow-eyes. I guessed she would be off like a shot the second she'd accomplished her objective here. Kill the yellow-eyes and then take an extended vacation in Australia or somewhere else on the other side of the world.

In my opinion, this was the best entry in the Twilight series. Set in the weeks before the big fight in Eclipse, it tells the story of newborn vampire Bree Tanner, a former runaway with no place to go. As a vampire she is disgusted by some of the behavior of her peers and does her best to quietly blend in and avoid trouble. For a while she does well at this, thanks to the repelling powers of Freaky Fred, another vampire, dubbed so by his vampire peers who are repulsed by him. However, while out hunting she eventually attracts the attention of Diego, another newborn vampire who has retained some of his human qualities. He likes Bree and the two of them spend a blissful day learning about each other and about their new existence as vampires. Together they learn that sunlight is not dangerous to vampires as they had believed and decide to share this information with their coven leader, Riley. Unfortunately, as they soon find out, this knowledge is dangerous.

Their romance is quick and fleeting and ultimately doomed but it is charming and cute while it lasts. Bree is a fascinating character with layer after layer, like an onion that is slowly peeled back. Diego is also interesting but before we can learn much about him he is gone. And then there is Fred, whose powers of repulsive magnetism served as a shield for both himself and Bree. Unfortunately for Bree, Fred decides to go off on his own, rebelling against Riley who wants to lead them into a fight against the Cullen coven. Fred doesn't trust Riley and asks Bree to accompany him. Sadly, she has been led astray by Riley who has promised to lead her to Diego, an offer she can't refuse. Fred invites both her and Diego to meet up with him the following day and Bree agrees, not realizing that her time on Earth is sadly coming to an end...

This book was wonderful. I am not a huge fan of the Twilight series, having read the series only because a friend of mine begged me to. However, with it's rich story and complex characters, not to mention a great plot, this book is irresistible. Bree Tanner is probably my favorite character in the entire series. Stephenie Meyer claims this was a writing exercise in her folder. I can only hope she decides to write more exercises and share them with the world.

Five Stars.

Spoilers ahead, if you're unfamiliar with the Twilight saga.

Bree Tanner is starving in the back-alleys of Seattle--a teenage runaway fleeing an abusive parent, contemplating how to sell her body for lunch money. Just as she hits rock-bottom, a friendly young man happens by and offers to buy her a cheeseburger.

Unfortunately for Bree, the charming philanthropist is a vampire, and in short order, Bree is made a vampire herself and sucked into a little community of vampirized teens who spend their days locked in a basement playing video games and tearing off each other's limbs, their nights devoted to de-sanguinating hapless Seattle-ites who stay out too late in the wrong part of town.

Superhuman strength and regenerative power don't quite compensate for muddled memory and a constant, searing thirst for blood. The tearing-off of limbs is also a major buzz-kill. Unlike most of her cohort, Bree clings to the tenuous shreds of humanity remaining to her, though she doesn't know why it seems important.

Then, she finds an ally, and a friend, and Bree dares to hope there might be a way out of this un-living hell that's claimed her.

If you've read the books or watched the movies, you already know precisely how Bree's odyssey among the undead will end. Bree shows up without fanfare in the aftermath of the climactic battle in Twilight: Eclipse, and is summarily dispatched, offstage, after about five minutes in the spotlight (about 2.5 minutes in the movie). She's a redshirt, a throwaway character, a tool to showcase the icy brutality of the Volturi über-vampires who stand in the way of Bella and Edward's dream of glittering eternal bliss.

It's odd--in those five minutes, Stephenie Meyer had me caring more about the fate of this pitiable young lady, trapped in a world she never made, than I did about Bella, Edward, or any number of Cullens.

Then, without missing a beat, Meyer sent in the brute squad to twist off poor little Bree's head.

As you might expect, I found that outcome less than satisfying. It seems Ms. Meyer felt the same way. Sometimes a minor character will pop into a story and refuse to "go gentle into that good night." Thus, this novella.

In The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner, we get Bree's backstory, most of it, from her point-of-view, plus the scoop on the kamikaze army of newborn vampires dispatched so efficiently by the Cullens and their werewolf allies in Eclipse. Bree and company are, in her words, the "dregs," the lost children of the night, thrown away by an uncaring society, gone half-mad and feral. There's a very strong reinforcement of an idea lurking in the background of the Twilight stories--Bree's situation is typical of vampires. Bella and company are the "one-percenters" in their universe.

Bree remains a sympathetic character at her core, a good girl struggling to survive in a very bad place, but there's a sinister edge to her condition that moves her beyond the innocent simplicity of a lost waif. Her transformation has made her simultaneously superhuman and something less than human. She hates what she's become, though she can no longer imagine any other way to live. She's ruled by her bloodlust and shows no compunction or remorse about killing humans to satisfy it, whether singly or en masse. Humans are food. She can barely remember what it was like to be one.

Even as Bree begins to ponder the morality of how she and the others like her are treated as disposable and are being manipulated to support a larger agenda, she remains a stone-cold killer. Ironically, it's the expression of one of the last vestiges of her humanity that leads her to reject a chance for escape and seals her fate. Her doom is all the more tragic when we discover she had a way out.

There's a deeper metaphor here about what it means to be human and to be dehumanized--marred by sin and the evil of a broken world. Like Bree, these ideas deserve more time than they received in Twilight-proper, but there's only a taste of the powerful story that might have been, had it fallen into the hands of a more formidable author.

Still, The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner is a solid story, pared of its parent novels' excesses--a stark, sorrowful tale of a lost girl bound to a fate she didn't seek, whose courage is admirable but insufficient to save her, and whose brief life as a vampire is anything but sparkly. It stands on its own, but is best appreciated with some prior background in the Twilight series, particularly Eclipse. Teens and up.
