Fans of Stephenie Meyer's ubiquitous 'Twilight' novels are about to receive an unexpected treat: a brand new book.

According to Entertainment Weekly, 'The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner' is scheduled to be released by Meyer's publisher Little, Brown and Company on June 5. That's just in time to build even more hype for 'Eclipse,' the third film adaptation in the series, which is scheduled to land in theaters on June 30.

Originally written as a side project to help her flesh out characters while working on the book version of 'Eclipse,' 'The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner' clocks in at a relatively slim 192 pages and "chronicles the journey of villain Victoria's newborn vampire army as they prepare to close in on Bella and the Cullens." Meyer describes the creation and publishing of the story as a happy surprise.
