Description

Buffy's world goes awry when former-classmate-turned-vampire Harmony Kendall lands her own reality TV show, "Harmony Bites," bolstering bloodsucking fiends in the mainstream. Humans line up to have their blood consumed, and Slayers, through a series of missteps, misfortunes, and anti-Slayer propaganda driven by the mysterious Twilight, are forced into hiding.
In Germany, Faith and Giles discover a town where Slayers retreat from a world that has turned against them, only to find themselves in the arms of something far worse. A rogue-Slayer faction displaces an entire Italian village, living up to their tarnished reputation as power-hungry thieves. And finally, with the help of a would-be demon lover, Dawn addresses her unfaltering insecurities.
* Collects issues #21-#25 and the short stories "Harmony Bites" and "Vampy Cat Play Friend" from "MySpace Dark Horse Presents"!
* A "New York Times" bestseller!

Our customer reviews

I really wasn't that thrilled by this installment in the series. There were a few moments to advance the plot i.e. Dawn, Simone etc. But there was also a lot of random stuff that I just found irritating. I could see the point for the sections with Harmony as they sowed the seeds of discontend about the slayers, but they were also annoying, and as for those cat toys - well, I was just shaking my head in disbelief, wondering what on earth that decision was about. I am hoping that the plot may make more of a reappearance in volume 6. I received this as a free ebook ARC from NetGalley.show more
