Fans 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.'
