  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2018 October #2
    Nina Jamison-Smythe has never been fond of Slayers—not when Buffy, the most infamous Slayer of all, was responsible for Nina's father's death. Raised at the Watchers Academy alongside her twin sister, Artemis, Nina doesn't train in combat; instead, she learns medicine and healing, while Artemis studies to be a Watcher, those who guide Slayers on their quest to rid the world of supernatural evil. But when Buffy (as usual) does something dramatic and violent, the world is suddenly emptied of all magic, just as Nina's Slayer powers activate. With magic seemingly gone forever, Nina's not only facing a destiny as a hated Slayer—she's the very last of the line. Between a demon fighting ring and a mysterious shadow in her own home, Nina has plenty of opportunities to put her new powers to the test. Canonically picking up midway through the Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic, this action-packed series starter includes nods to the beloved television series, but introduces a brand-new set of characters and monsters. Fans of high stakes (apocalypse high), monster madness, and serious girl power will line up for this one. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Fans of the cult movie, the hit TV show, and the groundbreaking comic series will be eager for this new entrée into the Buffyverse. If that doesn't do it, best-selling White herself, who has tangled with the Frankenstein mythos (The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein?, 2018), has proven she can pull a horror-loving crowd.
