More About the Author

Brad Meltzer is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Inner Circle and The Book of Fate, as well as the bestsellers The Tenth Justice, Dead Even, The First Counsel, The Millionaires, The Zero Game, and The Book of Lies. He is also the author of the nonfiction bestsellers, Heroes For My Son and Heroes For My Daughter, collecting heroes from Jim Henson, to Rosa Parks, to Mr. Rogers. Brad is also the host of the History Channel TV show, Brad Meltzer's Decoded -- one of the co-creators of the TV show, "Jack & Bobby" -- and is the #1 selling author of the critically-acclaimed comic books, Identity Crisis and Justice League of America, for which he won the prestigious Eisner Award. His newest book, The Fifth Assassin, will be published in January 2013.

Raised in Brooklyn and Miami, Brad is a graduate of the University of Michigan and Columbia Law School. You can find him regularly on or at

For authenticity, The Book of Fate was researched with the help of former Presidents Clinton and Bush. He was selected by the Department of Homeland Security to brainstorm different ways that terrorists can attack the US. The Inner Circle is about a young archivist in the National Archives who finds out that George Washington's secret spy ring still exists to this very day.

His books have spent nearly a year on the bestseller lists, and have been translated into over 25 languages, from Hebrew to Bulgarian. In The Tenth Justice, the opening lines are: "Ben Addison was sweating. Like a pig." In the Hebrew translation, it became: "Ben Addison was sweating. Like a horse." We're not sure if it's a kosher thing or what.

Brad has played himself as an extra in Woody Allen's Celebrity and earned credit from Columbia Law School for writing his first book, which became The Tenth Justice. He also co-wrote the oath that the President of the United States gives to all AmeriCorps members. Before all of that, he got 24 rejection letters for his true first novel, which still sits on his shelf, published by Kinko's.

Brad currently lives in Florida with his wife, who's also an attorney.

Format: Paperback
After the joyless slog of the last volume this book starts strong. Buffy has gained Superman-like powers leading to some funny scenes, interesting banter and well... joy. She outruns bullets, lifts locomotives and leaps tall Tibetan temples in a single bound (while everyone around her groans at the reference). The start of this book is happy.

But soon plot twists of out left field overwhelm the book. A group of villains ask to join the slayers and are accepted without question. A long-lost character shows up out of no where. Twilight's identity is revealed and passed off with a completely inadequate explanation. And then we have dozens of pages of world-shaking super sex. Oh and everyone has magic ipads now.

The illogical plot is lampshaded as Giles rambles for pages while everyone demands he get to the point. He never does. And I worry there is no point.

This is not a bad book, it's just not well thought out. I'll stick with it hoping it will all make sense in the end but I'm less and less confident it will.

I have looked forward to this Act IV of the season for years now, finding where the story concludes, how is this big bad related to Buffy's development and history?

On the one hand, I must thank the authors for giving me the opportunity to continue to enjoy and share in the lives of my most beloved cast of characters. Much of the dialogue is still sensational, and I really enjoy the transition to comics with a self-referential explosion in powers and relationships of characters to a new medium. You can't expect the story and characters to remain stuck in the television/drama genre. A new vehicle of expression (e.g. comics) makes for new plots, new stakes and new rules of storytelling.

HOWEVER, the reveal of the Big Bad, the explanation for this development, and the ensuing direction are just far fetched, even within a fantasy realm. Even in the story of the superhero with suspension of disbelief we need consistency in character, we need plausible explanation within the defined reality, and it needs to "add up" with the earliest episodes. I call b.s. As in last episode of Lost b.s. As in I feel uncomfortable reading about this cosmic boinking b.s.. You find a lot of the same themes in Watchmen, but there the universe-time-love-thing actually makes sense logically, the characters' motivations are clear and you feel that the story was planned from the beginning rather than having the reveal tacked on last-minute at the end of a long brainstorming session involving a lot of marijuana and doritos.

This is the first time Buffy has ever insulted my intelligence. I still love her, but we might have to go to counseling.

Yes, it's terrible. Really, really terrible. Jar-Jar Binks terrible. YES.
Buffy, as a show, was top notch. It was art; great writing, spectacle, and character. But the comic book leaves much to be desired: after the first issue, it makes no sense. It's convoluted; it's boring, it's kitsch. And all the writers are the same as the show! Something's amiss here.
Buffy has an army of slayers who fight off villians. Then they fight off the U.S. Army (what, huh?), then they go to Tibet, where Buffy is super strong, then the Big Bad shows ain't Warren, who even the writers admit in letters (whoops! we forgot he's dead!) that he shouldn't even exist. The Big Bad is Angel, who evidently took a leave of absence from his own successful (and extremely well-written comic by Drak Horse's competitors, IDW) who is the weakest, lamest Big Bad since, well, Season Four. And they do this for more than 24 issues! There's also some lesbian scenes that do not belong, are out of character, and a sorry attempt to pander to the LGBT community at the expense of the character and good writing. Did I spoil it? Sorry. Save your money and buy Angel's own comic. This isn't the Buffy that you know. It's a poor imitation. Bargain basement.

I loved so much about Twilight, the next-to-last volume in Season 8 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I loved Xander and the way he dealt with Buffy's untimely over-sharing. I loved Buffy's powers ramped up to superhero levels and the reason behind it. I loved the arrival of Angel, even if I didn't completely love why he was there. I loved, in an extreme fashion, the arrival of the surprise Buffy alum at the end of the volume. I just didn't love where the overall series story arc ended up.

Who is Twilight? We've wondered through 6 previous volumes. The answer, well, is disappointing to say the least. The reveal will be a shock, followed by a groan. Because, really, haven't we already faced this villain before in another form? Sure, this is different. It always is. The person behind the Twilight mask isn't the actual evil Buffy and the gang face anyway. It's all leading up to an event. An event that changes the world. I find myself groaning again.

I don't like where the story went here and I'm very afraid of where it's going to take us in the last volume of Season 8. Everything was coming along nicely and then this is what we get. What the hell? This is one of those rare instances where I wish everyone wakes up realizing it was all a dream. I want a do-over. Continuing on this path, all that's left for the next volume is cleaning up the mess they made while Buffy struggles with her love life. I desperately hope Whedon has something amazing up his sleeve.

Twilight is so close to perfect while managing to allow for a large amount of wrong to work its way into the story. I couldn't help but love this volume, while simultaneously hating everything Twilight related.
