messing with here Buffy truly helped me survive at some of the darkest times of my life I ve watched it over and over and over again I ve met the cast members I am someone who likes many things, but how many things can I say I m really a fan of Um, like, one or two.This book was a huge deal for me, and I expected that it just couldn t possibly ever sit comfortably up alongside my beloved Buffy But I have to say it Kiersten White did a really great job.I think Slayer is definitely a book for those already pretty well versed in the Slayer Hellmouth mythos It is virtually impossible to explain so many years and seasons of backstory without info dumping throughout the whole book so White mostly opts to keep it vague, but at the risk of making zero sense to newcomers to the Slayerverse I should also mention that this is set after certain events in the comic continuation, too I wasn t sure I liked this at first because I ve always been a little reluctant to view the comics as canon they re fun fanfic to me, but that s all Still, somehow, I think it works well here We know it s a demon Right, but it s wearing a fecking Coldplay shirt How evil can something wearing a Coldplay shirt be White is clearly a hardcore Buffy fan because she absolutely nailed the quirky humour I snorted out loud very attractively multiple times while reading The characters are adorable, and the author has taken some steps towards correcting the overall lack of diversity in Buffy Cillian is British Nigerian, and gay, dating smart and nerdy Rhys The two of them bring so much warmth and laughter to this book Artemis and Honora also have a very sexy, tension filled relationship I almost wish Artemis had been narrating.The actual narrator and newly appointed Slayer is Artemis s timid sister Athena, or Nina Long lurking in her strong sister s shadow, everyone is pretty shocked when Nina is the one chosen Now hellhounds are appearing left and right, and Nina s worried her mother might be up to something demonic Occasionally, the narrative is broken up by a mysterious hunter perspective, too It s not all silliness, though As true Buffy fans know, lurking under the campy jokes are darker themes about choices and belonging As Nina comes to realize Being chosen is easy Making choices will break your heart And speaking of hearts breaking The choice was to save the world or to save you And I chose you sobs With classic BtVS elements like family drama, moral struggles, pop culture references, and demons aplenty, this is a really enjoyable story Never has the end of the world been as fun as it is in the Slayerverse Of course, the ending is suitably dramatic, and concludes with a spectacular reveal that has me dying for the sequel Romance is suggested for the future, but isn t a huge part of this book.A really pleasant surprise Now off to binge watch Buffy Again.Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube flag 770 likesLike see review View all 71 comments Tishna Lodi

read a book for three uninterrupted hours and absorb the personalities and problems of fictional characters and suddenly you re doing much better YEAH SAME.I loved this book but don t ever talk to me about Buffy because I ll either end up getting so over excited I start knocking lamps over or I start sobbing hysterically So, what s this book about Buffy Summers had torn the world in half when she destroyed the Seed of Wonder that fed all magic on earth, and the rip was a wound Buffy s actions meant that no generation of Slayers will rise again and the powers of Watchers those who guide the Slayers have frayed to the point of breaking.After years of tiptoeing through her life, trying not to set off memories like land mines, the last thing Athena needed is to find out that she s the last Slayer, Chosen right before the magic vanished forever Athena comes from a generation of Watchers, her father was assigned to Buffy and her twin sister, Artemis, was the only one given proper training to become one Athena was the castle s medic, with a mother she suspected hated her and a sister who bore the burden of Athena s pain in addition to her own Being a Slayer needed someone far daring than her It needed the thunder and the avalanche, the war cry and the whirlwind and the fire Neither of these things Athena thinks she has But Athena soon finds within herself, rising through all the consternation and fright, a strange bubble of gladness everyone was the foreground of the painting that was Athena s life and she was always the background But not any.But being a Slayer comes with hard choices, and, now everything Athena would do, she would do alone and with blood on her hands And maybe Athena doesn t blame Buffy for almost ending the world after all Being chosen is easy Making choices will break your heart I m a huge fan of Buffy The Vampire Slayer so it was already guaranteed that I would certainly love the world in which this book is set, but I also know how spin off series usually work, affording only fleeting glimpses of the characters to whom my loyalty is pledged, using the curious twinning of familiarity to lure me into the trap of the new But reading Slayer was like revisiting a favorite story from childhood and realizing that while the details were the same, the entire meaning had changed I absolutely loved it.White takes a familiar world and builds upon it, readers will hear echoes of Buffy The Vampire Slayer while recognizing the imagination that has wrought old material into something entirely fresh Her world is intoxicating, imbued with an unrelenting sense of peril that kept me riveted through every chapter the jittery tension only slightly tampered with the characters sharp, laugh out loud observations And when the final tiles of the story are set in place, and at last the picture shows whole, White closes the story raising questions than answers, leaving you hoping she has another entry up her clever sleeves.The bulk of this book is about Athena, her failures and successes, her loneliness and fears and frustrations they all bud and blossom into a compelling adventure White is most successful at delineating Athena s internal conflict as she struggles to balance between her instinct to heal and fix bodies and her actual calling being a Slayer Athena has always tried to make herself smaller, to fit neatly into the ordered lines of expectation She was finally settling into her role of medic before her life was uprooted and Athena now fears that if she d so much as think of herself as a Slayer, she d get pinned to everything she d been trying to get away from Being a Slayer might have freed her from the cage her mother has crafted for her, and allowed her to embrace her full strength and the potential her mother had so forcefully repressed for many long years, but it has also put a permanent tarnish on her relationship with her sister, Artemis, who is embittered by her sudden irrelevance in Athena s life and considers her being a Slayer an us that spat on everything she d done to keep Athena safe.Athena s journey of discovering the discrete entity that is herself, apart from environment, expectations, and the watchful eyes of everyone else is one of my favorite parts about this book.It s honestly only in surfacing from the story that I can cast a critical eye backwards and say, this part floundered, this part went on too long The story begins a bit slowly, and it takes a while to disentangle exactly who or what the focal points of the plot are supposed to be But once it s up and running, it s entirely riveting There s also a comfortable and realistic diversity among the characters I just wish they were all given their own sets of longings and fears and impact the trajectory of the story instead of being set aside in favor of escalating the plot.With that being said, Slayer definitely leaves the stall door wide open for improvement in further installments and I m looking forward to it The choice was to save the world or to save you And I chose you BLOG TWITTER INSTAGRAM TUMBLR flag 369 likesLike see review View all 28 comments Jan 07, 2019 Melissa Dog Wolf Lover

as the fact that this fucking garbage read like a middle grade novel with whiny fucking characters that act 12, but then Kiersten pulled that shit at the end and I m just Done Good fucking night, I want to snap the neck of every character in this trash ass fuckin book and then scream I can t believe I wasted three days on this horrendous garbage when I could have been reading something so much better Anyways, I can t tell you what this book is about because uhhhhh I forgot and it s only been a day oops LMAO Ig that should say something about this book It s forgetful and irrelevant and I m not wasting any energy on this shit, trying to remember what it s about But what i DO remember is that it was an extremely slow build up to the most disappointing, ridiculous, awful, and just super DISAPPOINTING ending to ever exist and i m still so mad about it and i cannot believe that happened at the end, y all oh my god anyways, let s talk about why this book got two stars instead of negative three stars 1 Rhys was such a pure ball of sunshine and also, my only mood Rhys leans close, peering curiously I haven t read that volume He sounds jealous Rhys says, with genuine hurt, There are books I didn t know about i fucking love him oh my god 2 Rhys and Cillian are the cutest couple and I would 11 10 give my kidney up for them.3 I remember being somewhat engrossed into the plot, but couldn t enjoy it when the characters were being unbelievably STUPID like, literally so fucking stupid which brings me to the reason i can t stand anyone in this book so, i m not sure if these are spoilers or not i really don t think this is a spoiler, but here s a warning just in case because i don t want you easily triggered put that small irrelevant fuckin detail in a spoiler tag you bitch, you spoiled it for us type of people to come me so UHH SPOILER WARNING CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW ATHENA HELD A THREE YEAR FUCKIN GRUDGE OVER SOMEONE FINDING HER POETRY WHEN SHE WAS THIRTEEN AND READING IT IN FRONT OF HER CRUSH Honora, the stupid, meann, rude and just piece of shit bitch read out her poetry and i get that it s embarrassing and you wanna slaughter this bitch, but like sweety it s been three years maybe you should GET OVER IT and move the fuck on she keeps bringing up some stupid childhood shit up, three years after it happened and honestly it s pathetic and irrelevant and can you stop fuckin so pathetic and deadass move the fuck on because you deadass have important things to worry about than someone reading your poetry when you were a kid this shit was repeated so many times in the book, i got sick of it, like,,,,, please stop at this point i m glad that happened to you and Honora, the one who did this to our poor lil Athena is also such a shitty person like deadass, what makes you want to be such a shitty person sweety stop, that shit ain t cute these kids are supposed to be 16 and 19, yet they dead read off as 12 year olds this has such a middle grade feeling to it and again i m mad because i went into this thinking it was young adult and Kiersten deadass used words like butthead i think it was fricking and other made up 12 year old curse words instead of actual fucking curse and it s like hello y all are not 12, teenagers know what fuck, shit, bitch, dick, asshole, fucker, mother fucker, dickhead and a variety of other words I probably should not say, ARE use those words instead of butthead it physically annoyed me to read the word BUTTHEAD LMAO like wtf His concern is so genuine that I feel like the worst person in the world Because you are,

Kiersten White4 out of 5 Stars Buffy the Vampire Slayer has been one of my favorite t.v series growing up I know, it s not the most appropriate show for little girls, but regardless everything I continued watching it till the end Whoops Because of my love towards the series and the movie, the minute I saw there will be a Buffy spin off I was over the moon, even though I haven t read anything by the author at that time Therefore this book has become one of my top anticipated books of this year and fortunately it did not let me down One thing I did before reading this was not to get into the book with high hopes, because of my past experiences with other books that ended up disappointing me.Before writing my thoughts on this book, I want to make two things very clear 1 If you re not a fan of Buffy or never watched anything related to it series, movie, spin off and etc you may not like enjoy this book.2 For those who love Buffy, don t compare this to the t.v show, it may be a slight disappointement for you We were Chosen for something we wouldn t have picked for ourselves But you were Chosen because of who you are So don t let being a Slayer define you You define being Slayer One of the things that bothered me so much about Nina our protagonist chosen one damsel in distress at first then suddenly becoming a badass, is her hatred towards Buffy, Nina wasn t the only one who hated Buffy, almost everyone in the Watcher s Academy did, they blamed poor Buffy for almost everything she did I do understand why Nina and the rest hated her in the first place, but without Buffy and the many sacrifices she did for them they wouldn t be alive in the first place All things aside, I did like Nina as a main character, but her mother and Artemis her twin sister weren t my favorites, I found both of them annoying and unlikable.Rhys and Cillian were the highlights of the book I could not ask for a better couple for a book.Another character I would like to include in this review is Honora She is the kind of a person you will love to hate with every one of your guts, or maybe it was just me.I think the author tried to liken Slayer as much to the tv show as possible, I wouldn t say it was a complete success, but I m also not saying it is a fail There were moments where the humor in this book was a lot like Buffy.I enjoyed this book very much, but as I mentioned it before Don t compare this with the t.v series.The mysteries were very obvious and I wasn t surprised by the turn of events Also, the concept of the story was much milder than the Buffy franchise In my opinion the author wrote this for the younger audience I would say the whole genre of this book was hanging between middle grade and young adult But, let s look at the bright side, I never grew tired of this book.The ending wasn t very cliffhanger y, it felt like a standalone Yes, I know there are a lot of questions left unanswered, because obviously the author did that on purpose for the second book I do expect much darker elements, storyline and action for the second book.After reading the book and getting Buffy references, all I want to do is to rewatch Buffy s show flag 58 likesLike see

past few months and it becomes obvious that Nina has been chosen to become the next Slayer gaining all of the abilities that come with the job.In my opinion Kiersten White has done a wonderful job balancing this new series with the iconic feel of the Buffyverse and inserting in her new characters and situations to continue the story The book really can be read by anyone whether they were a long time fan with that same feel of the old or whether a new generation of fans who were never caught up in the original There was just enough explanation of the world to allow new readers to be comfortable with the new characters and their story but also to set the stage of the classic for those that remember that feel too Other than a few slow parts this one was a lot of fun and I ll be looking forward to seeing what is in store for the twins after the cliffhanger of an ending.I received an advance copy from the publisher via Edelweiss.For reviews please visit flag 36 likesLike see

the show, but this was still a huge turnoff for me That and Nina just wasn t that interesting of a character There is some information about the world and the events of Buffy to go on So it s not necessary to watch the tv show Upon getting a good idea of the world I found that I wasn t that interested I feel that I have read better worlds.One thing I will give this book is that it s an easy

YESDid it deliver Not reallyThe book did start out promising I liked that we were starting off characters that were working to become watchers I could already get a hint of these characters personalities and I was really liking Reese, Artemis, and Killian But then the main character Nina just went on a rant about how much Buffy sucks How she destroyed the world again, how she has no respect for watchers, blah blah blah It s a little off putting when you are a Buffy fan which I am Yes Buffy has fucked up quite a bit but she never had disregard for watchers Giles was a father figure to her So as I could understand where Nina was coming from since Buffy was the reason her father died she still didn t have to keep going on about it Another big issue I had was Leo He was a decent guy minus not delving the important detail that he is half demon that became Nina s watcher once her Slayer powers grew to fruition but it should have just stayed professional There doesn t always need to be a romance But knowing White there always has to be one And then there was Artemis I can get wanting to protect the sister that was always the weakest of the two of them but it was getting a little ridiculous when she always tagged along on missions How she always insisted that Nina was incapable of taking care of herself even though she now had super human powers The worst part of all of it is that she refused to believe her own sister that Honora was bad news and that the demon Doug was not It s hard to believe sure but you would think you would do the mature thing and give your sister the benefit of the doubt So yeah she frustrated me.Speaking of frustrating even the adults were at times How they refused to make Artemis a watcher when she failed the test just because she chose her sister over the world How they also were reluctant to accept Nina as the last Slayer It was all dumb and whenever Nina or Artemis tried to confront their mother she would always get defensive and leave in a huff Now that is childish A lot of things could have been solved if the council put on their big boy and big girl pants and tried to actually pay attention to what was going on Since they didn t one of them ended up dead and a member of the council ended up being a demon who caused the death and almost killed Killian The I think about it, the it seems that everyone was acting like idiots Then there was the fact that the plot was predictable af I knew something was off about Eve, her behavior being shady and always trying to niggle at Nina s brain to make her think Eve was trustworthy Their mother was acting almost opposite but it was obvious she was not the bad guy and was just keeping a lot of secrets So it came as no surprise when Eve revealed her true form and drained Nina of her slayer powers Nor did it surprise me when Nina s mother divulged everything and that she was just trying to protect her girls and loved them with all her being Don t get me started on the weirdness that was Nina s dreams where she can interact with other slayers, including Buffy Her little emotional conversation with Buffy was just weird so was the one with Faith I knew White was trying to include Buffy in this somehow but I think it would have been better off if Buffy was just a name mentioned in this book Last but certainly not least was the ending of this bookme after finishing it So Leo dies and comes back for the last time to somehow give Nina her powers back Okayn anyone say dumb, dumb, and dumb.Anyway do not recommend to Buffy fans and I guess the only thing I can say I liked was the good pacing of this book and the characters Reese and Killian That s it flag 27 likesLike see review Helena of Sparta Oh no Oh no Jan 28, 2019 07 40AM TheYALibrarian

old, it s my OG fandom So literally anything remotely having to do with this world is going to be overhyped in my mind That being said I think this series has potential hehslayer puns , but this book was anticlimactic as an introduction to it Things I disliked It was a tad info dumpy at the beginning There were a lot of characters to introduce and a lot of catching up on the timeline of what has happened between when the show ended and this story begins All the Buffy hating going on It got repetitive reading over and over again how much these left over watchers dislike everything she did Not exactly a way to win over fans of the show from the get go Very little action Not much actually happens in this book It s a good set up for where the series is going but I could have done with a little stabby stabby scenes Also there was very little vampire stuff Yes, demons were a big part of the show but if this is going to be an introduction to a new slayer, we should have seen some staking and dusting.Things I did like All the easter eggs that were tossed in that only diehard fans would be able to point out There were a few things mentioned that really paid homage to the whole series The tone was similar to the first few seasons The early episodes of the show never took themselves too seriously and the humor is cheesy, I think this book stayed true to that The characters are sassy and do feel like teenage versions of the scooby gang Seeing things from the watchers side of things As a book nerd, I can always relate to all the research and ancient tomes that Giles had Since most of this book takes place from a watcher s POV instead of a ditzy blonde who doesn t care about history and just wants to fight, it was nice to see That Buffy, Faith and other slayers are actually present in this It s nice to see characters that feel like old friends and their dialogue is true to them.So as a whole, this could have delivered a lot That being said, I still enjoyed it and will continue on with the series just because I m trash for anything Buffy flag 26 likesLike see review View 2 comments Jan 18, 2019 Sol TheBookishKing rated it it was ok review of another edition

Okay, as a I grew up with Buffy The Vampire Slayer fan, my hopes for SLAYER were a lot And I was totally bracing myself for major disappointment But ultimately what this spinoff new series did was make me want to rewatch a series that meant a lot to me for so many years so I count that as a win In a world remade again and again, where the rules keep changing, where a Chosen One becomes Chosen Many, where magic disappears, where the old ways are broken, we are the one constant We still keep watch.SLAYER was, in some ways, achingly sad But that said, we still had the bantery quirky writing, with a few less pop culture references, and there was a delightful amount of diversity and representation to be found I also really loved having this all set on the Watcher side of things, post large magical event which I believe is from the comics I need to maybe look into those as it gave things a very interesting, and different, perspective that will definitely allow people who didn t follow the show a way into this universe Once a part of Watcher society, the only ways out are death, prison, or failure so complete you join Wesley Wyndam Pryce in private investigation working for a vampire named Angel. But the first 60% or so was slog through a lot of road blocky characters who refused to believe the protagonist, or doubted, or worked against her There was just so much, like, contrariness both with people hiding things or just working around things and that frustrates the shit out of me as a reader So, yeah, I wasn t loving this I kind of laboured through this for three or four days, in fact But We don t know anything about it. We know it s a demon Right, but it s wearing a fecking Coldplay shirt How evil can something wearing a Coldplay shirt be But then the last 40% happened and, as a bonus, we actually get a heartbreaking but sweet Buffy scene, and I was so onboard SLAYER is a two ish, maybe three, star read with a four star ending And what an ending Part of which I suspected but the other bit Oh man I definitely need the sequel So, yes, I m a bit mixed but I m definitely invested.3.5 being chosen is easy making choices will break your heart stars I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher thank you in exchange for an honest review flag 20 likesLike see review View 1 comment Apr 13, 2018 Helena Summers marked it as to read Shelves tbr still on my shelf, tbr 1 Edit Guys, the cover and the first two chapters are here I M FREAKING OUT S GOING TO BE A BUFFY SPIN OFF SERIES AND NO ONE TOLD ME HOW RUDE flag 20 likesLike see review View 2 comments Mar 28, 2017 ambsreads marked it as to read I VE NEVER SEEN BUFFY BUT I WANT THIS SO BAD SHOULD I WATCH BUFFY TO READ THIS I HAVE NO IDEA I JUST LOVE KIERSTEN flag 20 likesLike see review View all 11 comments Apr 30, 2018 Nadhira Satria marked it as to read I d read anything she writes even though I ve never seen buffy and that I hate vampires flag 19 likesLike see review View all 3 comments Jan 09, 2019 Christy rated it it was amazing review of another edition Ok well that was fantastic Full review to come flag 19 likesLike see review View all 3 comments Nov 28, 2018 Zoraida rated it it was amazing Shelves 2019 This is the Buffyverse continuation we deserve It elevated the world I loved so much with nuance and love and humor Five by five stars, duh flag 18 likesLike see review View all 4 comments Oct 24, 2018 Anastasia rated it really liked it Shelves 2018, arc, authors w, fantasy, paranormal uf, young adult Full Review on my blog a copy was provided by NetGalley Being chosen is easy Making choices will break your heart Wow This was perfect in every way It had action, romance, vampires, demons, I mean what could you ask for It was a little slow at the beginning but I was quickly drawn in The plot was great The chemistry between the characters was insane I loved everything about the book For someone like myself who hasn t watched anything of Buffy, it was easy to understand what was Full Review on my blog a copy was provided by NetGalley Being chosen is easy Making choices will break your heart Wow This was perfect in every way It had action, romance, vampires, demons, I mean what could you ask for It was a little slow at the beginning but I was quickly drawn in The plot was great The chemistry between the characters was insane I loved everything about the book For someone like myself who hasn t watched anything of Buffy, it was easy to understand what was happening I just wish there was a little world building There were so many questions left unanswered, I feel like there was a HUGE cliffhanger BUT I cannot wait to read This is definitely a book you have to read, whether you ve watched the show or not I highly recommend it Blog Instagram Twitter Tumblr Facebook flag 16 likesLike see review View 2 comments Jun 08, 2018 Camile Souza This Chamber of Books marked it as to read Shelves recent releases, wishlist, edelweiss reads, current month tbr, 2019, tbr 2019 OHMYGOD YOU GUYS I JUST GOT A FREAKING ARC OF THIS BOOK AHHHHHH I AM DECEASED.This is simply 1 of my two most anticipated upcoming new releases Period After 3 rejections, I didn t think I was goint to get it, but now it seems the publisher just went like you know what, there you have it I don t even know what to do with myself I M SHOOK TO MY CORE screaming eternally Also, this is like the 3rd arc I got this week, what the actual hell flag 16 likesLike see review View all 9 comments previous 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 next new topicDiscuss This Book topics posts views last activity YA Buddy Readers Slayer Slayer 1 by Kiersten White Starting January 8th 2019 19 31 Jan 27, 2019 01 41PM More topics Share Recommend It Stats Recent Status Updates Readers Also Enjoyed 0 likes More quotes renderRatingGraph 366, 515, 349, 79, 19 if rating_details rating_detailssert top rating_graph Company About us Careers Terms Privacy Help Work with us Authors Advertise Authors ads blog API Connect 2019 , Inc Mobile version

    7. I had really high hope for this because I love Buffy so insanely much but sadly I did not love this book.I felt like the plot and characters were sloppy I did enjoy the humor of the book, it had the quick wit and satire the show had.Overall disappointed with this sadly.
