Life on the Hellmouth - a.k.a. Sunnydale California - has
always involved a steady parade of demons intent on ruining
Buffy Summers' nightlife. Staying at the top of her game means
Buffy's racked up some powerful enemies. Now an old nemesis
has returned - Ethan Rayne, a college 'friend' of Giles' -
to Sunnydale and this time he actually wants Buffy's help.
Not surprisingly, he's run afoul of The First - an ancient
evil that predates humankind. And now The First has made Ethan
a deal he can't refuse: ultimate power. All he has to do is
lure Buffy into battle. With their sanity on the line, the
gang is going to need all the help they can get. Enter Spike
Chaos Bleeds is a pretty good book, although it falters
slightly in its final third. A tie-in with a comic book and
also the soon to be released computer game, the story brings
together some fan favourites on both the side of the goodies
and the baddies, including Faith, Faith's nemesis Kakistos,
Drusilla, and the horny dummy, Sid.
best thing about the story is its use of suspense. It takes
a while for the story to unfold and leaves you time to wonder
who will appear next, and how come creatures that died many
seasons ago are coming to attack the Slayers and their friends.
All becomes clear over time, particularly with the reappearance
of Ethan. However, towards the end it seems to veer off towards
some strange parallel storyline that would seem more at home
in the next Silent Hill computer game.
this could become a fan favourite due to its character line
up alone, plus it fills you with anticipation for the game's
release, as you'll get to actually take part in the story
you just read and kick some evil butt!
