I never read the Twilight saga novels although I did watch the movies and my daughter has all the books. It is something my daughter got really hooked into and I didn't have quite the same level of interest but watched the movies with her nevertheless. We were in paper plus last week and they had a pile of books on clearance for $2 and we found this book amongst them so we bought it to add to the Twilight collection.
I decided to give the book a read and I really enjoyed it although I hadn't read the other books having seen the movies I already knew who the characters were and all the rules of being a vampire and had knowledge of the newborn army that were created to try and overcome the Cullens and kill Bella. This book tells the story of how the newborn army were formed and what they went through before the battle focusing in on the character of Bree Tanner.
I got right into the book and definitely lost track of time wanting to find out what happened. It was quite silly really as I knew Bree died after the battle but I kept reading just wanting a different ending to happen. There were several points where she could of chosen a different path and escaped her eventual fate but deep down I knew this wouldn't happen although I still read urging her to change the ending.
It is only a short book so takes no time at all to read and I think makes a nice little edition to the twilight novels.
Random listing from 'Books'...
Krystyna is one of 732 "Polish children" who survived forced deportation to the Soviet Union and was given a home in New Zealand in 1944. Her remarkable story, a composite portrait drawn from interviews with Polish survivors, begins in a peaceful Polish village and follows her family's harrowing journey to a labour camp in Siberia, the terrible flight to freedom, and Krystyna's lonely voyage to a safe refuge in NZ.
This story is a beautifully evoked account of a child's journey through Europe at war, and a young woman's bewildering encounter with rural New Zealand.
