Fans of The Twilight Saga will be enthralled by this riveting story of Bree Tanner, a character first 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.
Since Eclipse is releasing this month on the big screen, I thought I would give this book a chance now. Eclipse was one of my favorite books in the Twilight saga. Even though I still wanted Midnight Sun to become the next book by this author, I guess anyone who is in love with this series will have to settle with this book for now.
I would say settling is the best way to describe this book to me. It wasn’t what I wanted and it didn’t live up to the hype around it. Maybe because I wanted a book like Twilight that will capture me and keep me reading instead of eating or sleeping. This book to me was only mediocre. I just couldn’t enjoy this book as much as I should have. To me, Bree just wasn’t a person I wanted to read about. I mean come on, give me Edward! Give me Jacob! Hell, give me Kristin Stewart as Bella over a vampire that I know is not going to be around for Breaking Dawn! I also felt that the author just didn’t give it her all with this one. The writing wasn’t as captivating as her previous books.
Overall, if you are a serious Twilight junkie, read it. It wasn’t a bad book, but it wasn’t great either. It needed something more to make it great.
Okay book, but it left me wanting more! 3 STARS
