It's the type of book that you don't want to put down until you finish.

This was the first time they actually had Buffy and the gang actually question the nature of good and evil.
Justin Capone
As a true fan of Buffy I think that this was one if not the best book of Buffy I have ever read.

It was a entertaining book that brought up alot of interesting questions that the show never did. I liked the interaction between the Scoobies, but the Buffy and Spike interaction was by far the best of the book. This was the first time they actually had Buffy and the gang actually question the nature of good and evil. I think this is also a very good book for Spike fans even though he is not on the cover.
This book also stayed true to the characters, which was a hard thing to do considering the characterization in season 7 for everyone was all over the place. One second Buffy was really caring for Spike and telling him he could be a good man, then next she was telling him she didn't want the man she wanted the monster that tried to kill her when they first met. I felt this book did a good job dealing with the character issues of early season 7, and I am very happy that the author of this book decided not to have insane Spike in this novel.

Willow is back from England, fully recovered from her magical flameout and ready to start fresh with her friend. Well, almost ready. After nearly succumbing to the lure of black magic, Willow is terrified of her own powers, fearful that, if she casts a spell it might go terribly awry. Or worse, she might lose herself again. Zander comes to the rescue by conceiving of a magic desensitization program that has Willow trying to levitate pencils - one tiny step at a time.
In the meantime, Buffy has her regular chores and patrols to make, Dawn continues to be everyone's favorite headache, and Anya is determined to make everyone just as grumpy as she is. Things would be almost normal except for the sudden, inexplicable appearance of a hunky angel, who cheerfully sets about ending the world. No doubt you are thinking 'yet another apocalypse for Buffy to avert,' but this time it's not a bad apocalypse, it's the real one. The powers of good have seen a sign, and this time it is for keeps.
While Giles tries to decide whether resistance is appropriate, Buffy decides that she isn't ready to throw in the towel. Unfortunately, Michael (our angel), is not only invincible but an all around nice guy as well. Buffy would really like him if he didn't keep apologizing as he unleashes on disaster after another. Willow tries to gather the courage to cast a spell that might stop the apocalypse, which might just undo the world in the process. On a lighter note, Spike and Anya develop really bad cases of acne.
The premise of the book gives each of the characters a moment to consider what is truly meaningful to them. What matters when faced with with what seems to be the real end of it all.

This was the first Buffy novel I have read, after being a big fan of the TV show. I must say, it has pleasantly surprised me (as have other BtVS novels I read after) by being very well written, with a very novel and surprising storyline.

All the characters were written extremly well and are "in character" for the season the book is set in. Spike is written just a bit too wimpy (I do love him just a bit more wicked), but overall the novel captured Buffy and her scoobies very well.

The story itself has very novel and entertaining elements: An angel, an apocalypse (THE literal apocalypse), a wolf in sheep's clothing and much more.

A very worthwhile read!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This actually asks alot of the deeper philosophical questions that the show skims over, the giant elephants in the room that is Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Buffy is the Slayer, the one girl in the world chosen to slay the vampires. Chosen by who? The Powers that Be, the forces of Good, God? She is told repeatedly that she can't fight this Apocalypse, but as the Slayer, all she knows is fighting until the bitter end.
When a wolf in sheep's clothing appears in Sunnydale heralding the final battle, the Archangel Michael begins the series of events, breaking the bowls or seals that house the End of the World as written in Revelations of the Bible. However the things that affect the "evil" don't affect the good. And good and evil are defined by some other force that doesn't feel that the "redeaming" demons like Anyanka and Spike who at this point has his soul, have done enough to qualify as "good." Yet Willow, who brutally slayed Warren, and tried to end the world, is still considered "good."
Overall I think that fans of the show will enjoy it, as it stays somewhat true to the characters during the time of Season Seven. It is also my personal belief that Xander should never do magic because it always goes wonky on him e.g. love spell, speaking latin in front of books...

I thought this book was outstanding! I have so many other Buffy books its not even funny. As a true fan of Buffy I think that this was one if not the best book of Buffy I have ever read. It totally freaked me out! Not to give away the ending but the end of the book totally freaked me out and the fact that Willow was still unstable from Tara's tragic death gave me even more of a scare. I didn't think I could read the rest of the book I was that freaked out! ANY Buffy fan should totally read this book!
