Bree Tanner can barely remember life before she had uncannily powerful senses, superhuman reflexes and unstoppable physical strength. Life before she had a relentless thirst for blood... life before she became a vampire.
All Bree knows is that living with her fellow newborns has few certainties and even fewer rules: watch your back, don't draw attention to yourself and, above all, make it home by sunrise or die. What she doesn't know: her time as an immortal is quickly running out.
Then Bree finds an unexpected friend in Diego, a newborn just as curious as Bree about their mysterious creator, whom they know only as "her". As they come to realize that the newborns are pawns in a game larger than anything they could have imagines, Bree and Diego must choose sides and decide whom to trus. But when everything you know about vampires is based on a lie, how do you find the truth?
This book was very easy to read, and from the beginning, anyone that knows the Twilight books, knows how the book is going to end. Geez, I guess even the title gives that away ... lol.
I enjoyed this book - we are given a different perspective of Bree, Diego, and Fred. These 3 vampires could have made a home somewhere and created a nice coven like the Cullen's and their friends. Also, we find out how Victoria and Riley have kept the new young vampires under their control by keeping them in the dark about sunlight etc ... very clever.
I believe that Stephenie gave a whole new perspective on the creation and training of the newborns. And it was nice to have some of the gaps filled in that were missing in Eclipse, from that point of view.
Congrats Stephenie - I think that you could write about anything, and it would be gripping and interesting. As I said before, this is an easy read, you can't get too involved with any of the characters in the book, but well worth reading if you are a Twilight Fan.
RATING - 7/10
