Buffy and Dawn are having difficulties settling into their
new roles now that their mother has gone. Buffy herself is
reluctant to cross over to the role of parent, and the two
are bickering more than usual. In
fact, Buffy's distraction prevents her from noticing strange
behaviour among the video-game crowd. One of Xander's friends
goes medieval outside the Sunnydale cinema, and it seems that
people who've been testing a new video game have been demonstrating
creepy tics. As the Slayer attempts to solve the mystery,
Xander gets abducted into an alternate demon universe. She
had to now figure out how to bring her fiend back before the
game is over for good...
is a good idea for a book, but somehow comes across a little
too cheesily to be classed as 'well done'. Of course, demons
are tricking gamers to believe they are testing a new virtual
reality game when in reality they are being sucked into the
body of an alien in another dimension to help wage a war for
a pretty mean demon who's power hungry for world domination.
book covers too much, Buffy and Dawn trying to deal with the
death of Joyce and finding where they fit in the scheme of
things now; Xander being super sleuth; and Anya being... well
Anya, and Willow starting to get a little too much into her
is also a big bad demon, which Buffy has to hunt down while
all the rest of this is going on!
Still an OK read, with some great ideas, but probably not
what you'd expect. Pretty much hit and miss. A read that will
have fans divided.
