the woods outside Sunnydale, Willow Rosenburg has exacted
a terrible revenge for the murder of her lover Tara Maclay;
She has captured Warren, the murderous leader of the Trio,
and flayed him alive. Her best friends, Buffy Summers and
Xander Harris, arrived too late to stop her. But
the death of Warren isn't enough for Willow. Now her friends
can only watch as the juiced-up witch sets off on a trail
of vengeance and magick-gathering to prepare the spell that
will bring Tara back to life. And whoever gets in Willow's
way is going to regret it... including one Slayer who is still
hoping to save her best friend...
Darkening is the first in a trilogy of novels that asks:
"What if evil Willow was never stopped?" It takes
the idea that we make thousands of choices each day, and just
by making one different choice the future could be very different.
The Darkening takes a trip down alternate reality lane
and shows you what could have been had Willow made some different
admit I always enjoy a good alternate reality story, but The
Darkening is a very dark book that follows Willow as she
turns to the dark side and tries to find a way to bring Tara
back from the dead - by using black magic of course. She continuously
fuels her addiction to power and grows stronger with every

loving girl she once was.

and happily puts them through hell and near death, and the
only thing that stops her from killing them all is... Tara's
ghost who returns to try and put her on the path of light
Darkening is only the start of the story, but it's a good
one. You'll be after part two and three in no time, just to
find out what happens next. Without giving too much away,
expect some interesting turns of events.
