Willow and Buffy head to New York City to unlock the secrets of Buffy's mysterious scythe, when something goes terribly awry. Buffy is propelled into a dystopian future where there's only one Slayer -- Fray, the title character of Joss Whedon's 2001 series, the first comic he ever wrote. Their uneasy alliance falls apart, leading to the death of a major character from the TV series, while back in the twenty-first century, the Scotland base falls prey to a mystical bomb courtesy of the Biggest Bad-Twilight. * The first two volumes of "Buffy Season Eight" have combined to sell over 160,000 copies! * Includes the highly anticipated "Buffy/Fray" crossover, "Time of Your Life," and "After These Messages... We'll Be Right Back," written by Jeph Loeb ("Batman: The Long Halloween)"! * "Joss Whedon, the man, the myth, the legend, writes the comic with the same genius as he did the show. The art, penciled by Georges Jeanty, is as faboo as the writing." -Janet Evanovich, "New York Times" best-selling author of "Hard Eight" * "The dialogue is Whedonesque and I can hear how the actors would read there lines. It's fun and witty and we're treated to more fantastical stories than the WB/UPN could ever pony up the money to do." -"Comic Book Resources" * A "New York Times" bestseller!

I was unable to read the third volume due to an error in the document/download making the pages blank. I therefore came to the fourth volume needing to get back into the story and trying to catch up on what I had missed.
I found it hard at first as clearly some events had taken place in the third volume that had led to the situation at the start of the fourth. There were a couple of new characters involved and I had to work out who was who and what was going on.
At the half way point, I felt I was just about back on track with what was happening, but by this point I also felt I was anticipating what was happening too much. It was far to easy to work out who the mystery 'bad guy' was and so there was no tension. I would have liked them to have kept more hidden so that the reveal was more of a surprise. In addition certain parts of this volume, such as Buffy's dream, felt a bit like filler and I couldn't see the point of them except for fluffing the story out a bit while nothing else was happening.
I'm still finding the storyline interesting overall though and I am looking forward to continuing on to volume five to see what will happen next.
I received this book as a free ebook ARC from NetGalley.
