Stephenie Meyer announced yesterday that there will be a novella (almost 200 pages) published about the newly turned vampire Bree from Eclipse. The book, The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner, will be released on June 7 and will be available in print as well as a free e-book for a month.
What do you guys think? Are you excited? Interested to read Bree’s story? I’m curious to know how much of it will include Meyer’s most popular characters, Bella and Edward and how much of it will be about Bree’s life as a newly turned vampire. What I can’t figure out is if it’s a standalone story based around events in Eclipse or if it will remain safely in the Twilight universe, catching up with the Cullens. In any case, I’m not sure how I feel about it…but what I do know for sure is that I’m not a huge fan of the cover art.
In other YA news, the sequel to Lauren Kate’s Fallen will be released on September 28, 2010 and will be called Torment (check out the cover.) Did you guys like Fallen? Are you excited for the next episode in the saga? How did it compare to Twilight? (as there are obvious similarities between the two books.)
