Read Stephenie Meyer's 'Bree Tanner' for free online
Tuesday 08 June 2010
On June 5, Twilight author Stephenie Meyer published her first new title in nearly two years, about a character originally featured in
Eclipse. As of June 7, the novella can be read for free at breetanner.com, where it will be posted through July 5.
The book tells the story of Bree Tanner and "the darker side of the world she inhabits. 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 conclusion."
"I'm as surprised as anyone about this novella," said Meyer in April. "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."
Meyer announced in April that she would give fans free access to the title, saying: "I'd always considered The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner as something for the fans. They have been so supportive of all things Twilight."
Stephenie Meyer has become a worldwide best-selling author with her young adult series The Twilight Saga, which has 100 million copies have been sold worldwide and been adapted into blockbuster films.
