It’s official! Although this isn’t the extension that we have all been waiting for, it is definitely a new book that is part of the Twilight Saga. Stephenie Meyer is releasing “The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner,” a novella. The book is meant to complement Eclipse and will be released before the movie comes out.
What’s really interesting about this is that you will be able to read the ebook for free online from June 5th through July 5th. You will be able to buy an actual book as well if you want. We do know that it will be hardcover and $13.99. One dollar from each book sold in the first printing will go to the American Red Cross.
According to the official press release, the book will focus on the newborn vampire Bree Tanner, introduced in Eclipse. The story will take us through “the newborn vampire army’s journey as they prepare to close in on Bella Swan and the Cullens.” Because Bree will be featured prominently in the Eclipse movie, it is the perfect time to release the book.
