Slayer | Kiersten White

From New York Times bestselling author Kiersten White comes a brand-new series set in the world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer that introduces a new Slayer as she grapples with the responsibility of managing her incredible powers that shes just beginning to understand. Into every generation a Slayer is born Nina and her twin sister, Artemis, are far from normal. Its hard to be when you grow up at the Watchers Academy, which is a bit different from your average boarding school. Here teens are trained as guides for Slayersgirls gifted with supernatural strength to fight the forces of darkness. But while Ninas mother is a prominent member of the Watchers Council, Nina has never embraced the violent Watcher lifestyle. Instead she follows her instincts to heal, carving out a place for herself as the school medic. Until the day Ninas life changes forever. Thanks to Buffy, the famous (and infamous) Slayer that Ninas father died protecting, Nina is not only the newest Chosen Oneshes the last Slayer, ever. Period. As Nina hones her skills with her Watcher-in-training, Leo, theres plenty to keep her occupied: a monster fighting ring, a demon who eats happiness, a shadowy figure that keeps popping up in Ninas dreams But its not until bodies start turning up that Ninas new powers will truly be testedbecause someone she loves might be next. One thing is clear: Being Chosen is easy. Making choices is hard.

Maybe I finished my January TBR already... besides one but I‘m not sure I‘ll read Thornghost or maybe I will. Undecided. Featuring Zeus as he walks by randomly. #dogsoflitsy

What a great, quick read! I really enjoyed the storyline and the ending of this book. Lots of action and adventure with a great cast of YA characters
I will most likely check out the next book in the series.

1. 3 books on the go - Five Days at Memorial, Slayer and Discount Armageddon.
2. 5 books currently out from the library.
3. I try different authors or watching a bit of tv to break a reading slump.

I finished SLAYER while I did some #audiopuzzling! My interest waned throughout the back half and there were areas where I felt it didn‘t hold together well, especially around the climax, but on the whole I enjoyed it. It reminded me how much I love the Buffyverse.

Books are dangerous, kids. They give you IDEAS. Make you desperate to rewatch your favourite TV series, even.

I started with S1 because I‘ve never liked it much and I figured I could pace myself, but I watched two episodes tonight, soooo... 🤷‍♂️

Also, I‘m making a cat blanket for the Humane Society while I watch TV. It‘s my first blanket of any kind and it‘s been fun.

Another gloomy #audiowalk. Sigh.

I‘m still enjoying SLAYER, but I definitely liked it more in the beginning than I do now, 63% in. Still, it‘s making me want to rewatch BtVS and reread all the comics. It‘s been a few years.

Avidreader25 It‘s been a few years since I binged BtVS, but I still think about that show all the time! 4mo
xicanti @Avidreader25 it‘s my favourite! I know it‘s gonna take over my life once I start rewatching it so I‘ve tried to resist, but I don‘t know how much longer I can hold out. 4mo
Avidreader25 @xicanti Such a great show! So many memorable moments. The entire “Hush” episode! 4mo

Such a fun read. I‘ve been a Buffy fan from Day 1, so I was super stoked when I heard this book was coming out. I waited to finish my latest rewatch before reading this, only to realize that it references some of the comics (which I haven‘t read). So that got spoiled for me, but other stuff from the comics have already been spoiled for me, so no biggie.

My one complaint about this book was how annoying the MC‘s low self-esteem could be at times.

Nina and her twin sister are not your average teenage girls. Their parents are Watchers and they grew up at the Watchers Academy.

I truly enjoyed this book. I am a huge Buffy fan and had recently just binged watched the series. This book picks up 2 months from where the Buffy tv series ended.

If your a Buffy fan then this book is for you. I LOVED it. Even despite some parts of the book were redundant and made me want to scream.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

That-Bookish-Hiker @GypsyKat thank you so much for gifting this book to me AND the Buffy+Faith funkos. You are the best! 💗 4mo

I loved watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This picks up not long after the final episode, following Nina, daughter of Buffy's original Watcher Merrick, as she and the rest of the Watchers Council learn to live in a world without magic and battle the demons left behind, both real and within, since Buffy permanently closed the Hellmouth. Lots of fun Easter eggs for fans of the show are scattered throughout! 🧛‍♀️🧛‍♂️

wanderinglynn 👍🏻 This is on my TBR. And now I‘m bumping it up to the top of the pile. 😉 5mo

I can‘t wait to read the books especially Slayer since my Buffy rewatch reminded me how much I love that world.

I wasn‘t sure about Slayer at first, but found it satisfying in the end. Pictured is the ultimate slayer—near perfection. Not read for #24in48 (still playing catch-up), but I‘m calling it. 17:30:09 Per the usual, I enjoyed peeping in on everyone participating. Congrats to us all! 📚 🎉

This was a bit disappointing. There was a lot of beating you over the head with information, including how much the main character hates Buffy. There was very little slaying and the writing didn't do it for me.

6/10 💫

#unpopularopinion here but I couldn‘t stick with this book. I could be wrong but this felt like a middle-grade book to me and it just didn‘t pull me in, despite being a Buffy fan. My library lumps all middle grade and YA fiction into a category they call “teen.” Middle grade and YA books are not at all the same in terms of maturity so I feel like this is misleading. Check out these library steps I screenshot from an Insta page though - love!! 😍

As an enthusiastic Buffy fan, I opened White's novel with excitement and trepidation. I hoped that the book could recapture the Buffy magic but feared that nothing could. Both of my inclinations were right. Is this Buffy-the-series level? Not quite. But it's really great. Athena (Nina) and Artemis are twins born to Watcher parents. As they've grown, Artemis has been the chosen one, stronger both physically and mentally. (continued in comments)

UnabridgedPod Nina, on the other hand, is the healer, the medic, the one too weak to fight or to really be a part of the last generations of Watchers. Artemis has taken on the role as Nina's protector who is willing to sacrifice anything to keep her sister safe. All of that changes when it becomes clear that Nina isn't as weak as everyone had thought. ⬇️ 7mo
UnabridgedPod The process of discovery as Nina discovers who she really is--this is a fabulous origin story--is authentic, fast paced, and fraught with danger . . . and with plenty of awkwardness as Nina begins to establish her new identity. While this book has some great call backs to the Buffy television show, it would also work for newbies--can't wait for the second in the series! 7mo
wanderinglynn Great review. Stacked! 7mo

These kindle flash sales always get me. Like I need anymore books. But this one was already on my TBR because...BUFFY! I have always been a huge fan and I have to see what the author does with this.

Spoilers!

The teen angst and White's insightful writing are both on target. So is the depth of mother/daughter relationships as well as sister/sister and platonic besties.
I also L-O-V-E the gay Watcher, cheesy demon, and the looming destruction-of-the-world plot device. It all feels genuine to the show.
Didn't like: the protagonist (Athena "Nina") hates Buffy and blames her for her current situation and the end of the Watchers. 80% complete.
