Spike is still chipped and snarking at everyone and the whole gang is cutting up like always.

I am pretty open minded and when it comes to the willing suspension of disbelief I will accept a lot of things in the name of a compelling narrative. But I have to admit that in "Little Things," author Rebecca Moesta goes over the line for me. A troop of fairies arrive in Sunnydale and it seems the wee folk intend to turn the never peaceful city into their own version of Tinkerhell. Okay, no problem with that idea (homage to Swift combined with the Blue Fairy as a psycho), but it seems Buffy has a toothache. Not only that, it is apparently the any kind of a toothache kind of toothache (as opposed to the not just any kind of toothache). If there had been some explanation forthcoming for this curious chink in the Slayer's healing and recuperative powers then I could have rendered a judgment via-a-vis the aforementioned willingness to suspend disbelief. Ultimately it seems the breach in the wall being explored has more to do with the Summers family's financial problems in the post-Joyce era. But enough of this rant.
After reading Mel Odom's complex tale in "Crossings" and Christopher Golden's mini-epic in "The Wisdom of War," Rebecca Moesta's summer Buffy the Vampire Slayer tale is like a wind sprint. The pacing is as fast as any BtVS novel I can recall reading and the average length of a chapter must be around six pages (perfect for taking short breaks at work to find out what happens next or to read in trips up and down in the elevator to procure liquid/salty/chocolate refreshment).
Fans of Spike should be forewarned that although the Big Bad appears on the cover he is not the focal character in "Little Things." (See? I made it to the third paragraph before "complaining" about the cover this time around.

I am a HUGE fan of Buffy The Vampire Slayer and had never read a book on the series and tried one out. Am I glad I did! Wow! Just like watching the show itself! The characters were true to form and came off genuine. I could just hear their unique quips and voices while I read. This one in particular is somewhere in the 5th Season, I am guessing near the middle more or less.
For those of you who are fans of the show, it's after Buffy's mom dies, during the height of Xander and Anaya's romance, after Spike's declaration of love but before Dawn's capture as the 'Key' and during Willow and Tara's affair, albiet when Tara began telling Willow she shouldn't be doing so much magick. My guess, near the middle to end of the 5th Season(the HellGod Glory Season).
The plot here? Big baddies that come in little packages. Should've been an episode. A troupe of winged sprites come to Sunnydale to create chaos.
Buffy is having a hard time dealing with her mother's death and the responisbility of raising and protecting her 15 year old sister Dawn, not to mention being the Slayer and having to save the world too many times to count. More problems arise when Spike discovers mini-demons wreaking havoc in Weatherly Park. Not just that, but she realizes she has no dental insurance and her toothache is interfering in her Slayer duties! How to combat the problem? Think small...very small.
The Scoobies are doing there best to help her, but Anaya and Xander are being held hostage by a plague of ants, Willow is determined to fix everything with magick, Giles is fixated on a parking ticket, Dawn is desperately trying to fit in somewhere and the smitten vampire Spike is trying to impress the Slayer.
Thinking things can't get worse, they do, this is Sunnydale afterall.

while out on patrol, spike leads buffy to a couple in the park who have been murdered. on closer inspection, they find that they are missing a lot of blood, but it is obvious no vampire did this. for on their bodies, they have lots of tiny bite marks instead of one big one. meanwhile buffy has a toothache that is a killer, giles gets a parking ticket, xander and anya have ants and the problems seem to keep coming. this book is deceptively mild at the beginning, but it picks up steam and ends decently. i only gave it four stars because it was not the best buffy book i have read, but the plot is okay.

This little ditty was absolutely delightful!

It's a short book, a quick and light read that is comfy and fun. The author does a wonderful job of keeping the characters true to their TV personalities that first drew us to them, and she mixes just enough comedy and Buffy-style one liners into the action to keep the reader chuckling.

I've read a few reviews where people say the toothache thing was distracting, or that they had a hard time imagining Buffy being so bothered by that kind of pain. To that I can only say that they must not have ever had a severe toothache. I have a plethora of medical conditions that involve pain, enough to fill a medical dictionary. Hence my high pain threshold. But a serious toothache can bring me to my knees. I thought it brought out Buffy's human vulnerabilities in an amusing and totally relatable way. It was a reminder that she's not immune to everything, even though she is the Slayer.

Spike was also very enjoyable in this story, toothpicks on his fingers and all. And I loved how he was the only one who figured out what was troubling Buffy. It paid nice tribute to his ability to tune in to her and see the things she tries to hide.

A fun read! Get yourself a copy!
