Buffy Summers, the Chosen One, the Slayer, is dealing with
a horror she is powerless to stop - the divorce of her parents.
Adolescence is tough enough without the added distress of
a family falling apart, not to mention the responsibility
of standing alone against the powers of darkness. In an incredibly
misguided attempt to alleviate Buffy's pain, the vampire with
a soul, Angel, has unleashed a group of Malignancy Demons
upon her and her family. They feed on the pain of the Summers

A very dark book, A Stake to the Heart is well written

a happy-go-lucky kinda book, but that doesn't mean it's not
worth checking out.
