Will Stephenie Meyer write more Twilight novellas to plug holes in “Breaking Dawn”?
By Kim Palacios
HollywoodNews.com: “The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner” (Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series companion novella) has been hailed as a foil for the series. Though nothing has been announced to this effect, mixed reviews for the final novel in the series may prompt Meyer to launch a similar exercise to plug holes in “Breaking Dawn”.
Emerging reviews say it plainly: “The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner” tells us much we didn’t know about the original Twilight saga, particularly about the vamps. Even MTV’s Hollywood Crush picked up on how scenes written about only in the Bree Tanner book not-so-mysteriously show up in the film version of “Eclipse”. In an article published today, it says Meyer “flat out admitted” in a USA Today interview that the novella was deliberately introduced in advance to dovetail with additional scenes in the film.
It begs a good question: what will Meyer do next? She is known to have written other unused material for Twilight. Though it may do little at this point in the film series to release “Midnight Sun” (the Twilight book from Edward’s point of view), might she release another character novella that serves jointly to embellish upon “Breaking Dawn”?
Some would say she ought to. The largest opportunity for Meyer would be clarifying or enhancing elements of the “Breaking Dawn” story misunderstood or disliked by fans. Under fire in reviews of the book are plot elements such as Jacob imprinting on Edward and Bella’s daughter, Renesmee, logic around the relative effectiveness of “talented” vampires and their powers, and lack of credibility around the calling off of the final battle.
