When Dawn mysteriously appears in Buffy's life, so did a million memories of them as sisters - impossible memories that can't be real, because Dawn simply was never there. So who is putting them in the minds of Buffy and the Scooby Gang? And what the Hellmouth does any of this have to do with the new crop of crazed, bloodsucking monks who are skulking about town?...

There are a number of things that really stand out about False Memories - and in a good way. Part of the story shows Buffy trying to deal with these memories planted in her head - what's real? These are great as you get to see little parts of the early series' replayed, but this time slightly twisted as Dawn is somehow involved. These include Buffy being bitten by the Master, Dawn getting caught by Angelus in the School and not Willow, all these little things just bring a smile to your face as you read.

Dawn however cannot stop being irritating and continues to get in Buffy's way as she tries to solve the mystery of the vampire monks. Dawn's snooping leads to finding missing years in the Watchers books, which Giles quickly dismisses. In time all is revealed, and there's resolution, but way too quickly.

The story could have been a lot longer, and more involved, but all in all it's still a classic tale and a must have for every fans collection.
