I would njoy this book After finishing The Conueror s Saga from this author I was ready to worship Kiersten White until the Crown of Stars (Crown of Stars, end of my days I was ready to crack any of her future stories open with a smile on my face And that s what I did But I did not have the impression that the author cared much about her own heroine She makes her say and do silly things She has strength in her but is so juvenile that her strength isasy to overlook Maybe this is because it takes place in Buffy s world so it s not 100% Kiersten White s creation Maybe if the author had written about vampire and demon slayers without making any link whatsoever to Buffy Maybe it would have felt authentic that way Maybe PerhapsBlog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin THE REVIEW IS POSTED AND SPOILER FREE I m so relieved right now that I can just sit down and review this book because I had been very busy with final xaminations and assignment for the past few weeks phewokay let s the review begins My Opinion Time I have watched some of the pisodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and while I am not really a fan of BtVS I still like BtVS It s really fun to watch and funny ven though I did not know much about Btvs I was still xcited to read this book Moreover that cover sort of looked spookey and compelled me to read it So I was in reading slump when I read this book and let me tell you that I that I am so grateful to read this book and also to Ms White because this book totally SLAYED my reading slump However I cannot give this book than 3 stars because while I am grateful the book saved me from reading slump the book was not amazing Like the kind of amazement that leaves you gaping and grins or clap your hands or hug the book But still it was pretty good though The Plot The plot was fun to read and this book was action packed which what I needed at that time when reading slump hit me The book was filled with adventures and they were pretty This Forsaken Earth exhilarating to read So I didn t have time to be bored while reading it because I actually did not have the time to do it and the book simply did not give a chance of a boring moment Every moments in the book were interesting and made me curious and uestioningverything The pacing was slow and it did not rush anything It s like The Summer Palace: A Captive Prince Short Story (Captive Prince Short Stories Book 2) every moments took their own times in the book but they did not drag on though The pacing was just perfect and I had nothing to complain about it There were also some references of Buffy and some characters that I knew from BtVS and I honestly got soxcited when I read those references because strangely it kinda felt nostalgic for me like they were old friends of mine ven though I ve only watched some of the BtVS pisodes and not all The Characters and The Romance You know I would totally give this book 4 stars without batting an Campfire eye IF ONLY I could like the main character s So first of all Nina is the main character Even though I did not have any connection to her and I just felt like I was merely reading without feeling anything she was a sort of refreshing character So it s not like she suddenly became kickass heroine Sometimes she was clueless and did not know what to do but it did not mean she was hopeless There were also times when she knew what to do So it s refreshing you know to read this kind of character The kind of character that also has vulnerability and also strength at the same time BUT again I did not have any connection to her and she did not really get mexcited AND DON T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON LEO That guy was one dimensional character He lacked personalities and I don t know what lse to say He bored me so much and he made me want to cry tears of boredom How could a character be this boring and just not memorable and I could not
FEEL ANY SPARK OF ROMANCE BETWEEN NINA AND HIM any spark of romance between Nina and him romance was just bland and lack of intensity or some kind of bond that I could feel It s pretty sad because I was hoping that I would love their romance But thankfully I could feel It s pretty sad because I was hoping that I would love their romance But thankfully were characters that I liked They were Artemis and Honora Artemis was not really a remarkable character but she s a good sister to her twin sister Nina and she loved Nina very much and I admit that Honora could irk me a bit because she could be pretty annoying but Honora s relationship with Artemis was so sweet and I could feel their feelings and love for ach other There was a scene that made me so soft in the inside and made me sueal I wish I could see their interactions Basically I LOVED their relationship Oh and I also liked Rhys and Cillian They made me laugh and this couple made me smile several times because I was happy for them and the love for Hurrah For The Blackshirts!: Fascists and Fascism in Britain Between the Wars each other was palpable These characters made the book fun to read and made feel this warmthvery time I read them If you haven t read this book I think you should give it a try because it s a pretty Adam Smith: An Enlightened Life exciting book and if you re a fan of Buffy then I think you ll feel very nostalgic when you read it Thank you very much for reading this review and liking it I hope you all have an amazing day I am literally resentful with the fact that reading slump hits me while I m on holidays However this book sounds action packed and awesome Just like what I need at the moment Hopefully this book will SLAY my reading slump He s bobbing his head in time to music playing from headphones and there s a book in his hands I peer at itNicholas Sparks Doug really might bevil then So huh here s the thing I don t think I actually Crazy Love expected this to be good Yeah yeah I postedxcited Buffy gifs and I tweeted Kiersten White like the crazed fangirl I am But this is Buffy you re 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 twoThis book was a huge deal for me and I Annual Editions: Technologies, Social Media, and Society expected that it just couldn t possiblyver sit comfortably up alongside my beloved Buffy But I have to say it Kiersten White did a really great jobI think Slayer is definitely a book for those already pretty well versed in the SlayerHellmouth mythos It is great jobI think Slayer is definitely a book for those already pretty well versed in the SlayerHellmouth mythos It is impossible to xplain 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 vents 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 demonRight but it s wearing a fecking Coldplay shirt How vil can something wearing a Coldplay shirt be White is clearly a hardcore Buffy fan because she absolutely nailed the uirky humour I snorted out loud very at.

Tractively 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 narratingThe actual narrator and newly appointed Slayer is Artemis s timid sister Athena or Nina Long lurking in her strong sister s shadow veryone 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 asy 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 sobsWith classic BtVS lements like family drama moral struggles pop culture references and demons aplenty this is a really New Plant Parent: Learn the Ways of Plant Parenthood enjoyable story Never has thend of the world been as fun as it is in the Slayerverse Of course the Dreaming Me: An

The Herald Angels Scream 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 onarth 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 breakingAfter 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 herself glad for it Colloquial Polish: The Complete Course for Beginners everyone was the foreground of the painting that was Athena s life and she was always the background But not anyBut being a Slayer comes with hard choices and nowverything Athena would do she would do alone and with blood on her hands And maybe Athena doesn t blame Buffy for almost nding the world after all Being chosen is asy 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 Bidadari yang Mengembara entire meaning had changed I absolutely loved itWhite takes a familiar world and builds upon it readers will hearchoes of Buffy The Vampire Slayer while recognizing the imagination that has wrought old material into something Red River Girl entirely fresh Her world is intoxicating imbued with an unrelenting sense of peril that kept me riveted throughvery 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 uestions than answers leaving you hoping she has another La strada delle croci entry up her clever sleevesThe 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 ofxpectation 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
