I am a huge Buffy fan, so I tend to like anything from the Buffy-verse. That said, this was an interesting, quick read. There isn't a lot of action, and there are no revelations of character. It's just a peek at the off-time of the slayer.

The story is somewhat disjointed, as the overall theme is that Sunnydale is overrun by visitors: student teachers, visiting bands for the battle of the bands competition, Ethan Rayne, a Watcher named Panner, and the monster of the week, the Korred. The "just pa

Another Buffy book down, another 100 or so to go, the pile is definitely endless!

There are many things I loved about this book. The idea of the Korred. The introduction of Panner, so much like a real character I searched Google to see if such a person had appeared in the TV series, no such person.

Every single character was down to a tee, and the pop-up of Ethan Rayne was a surprise, and although we could've done without him as he did nothing but taunt Giles, it gave us a whole new perspective th
Most of the time I finish my books, but I just couldn't finish this one. I didn't even get far, it was so slow and it took so much to keep reading. I just had to stop. Maybe that I can finish it later, but now I just can't.

As always, Sunnydale is a magnet for demonic activity, and in Visitors that activity comes in the form of the korred, a demon that dances its victims to death. Keep in mind that this book was released long before the original airing of the musical episode, "Once More, With Feeling," featuring a demon with a similar modus operandi. The korred wants Buffy as a victim, thanks to her super Slayer energy, but it spends a lot of time stalking her and giggling before it gets up the nerve to try anythin ...more
Student Teachers have invaded Sunnydale high and along with it Giles’s library. Where are the Slayerettes supposed to discuss things when they are being driven out of their own library? It seems that the Student Teachers aren’t the only new thing in town. Buffy senses a presence stalking her, one that’s definitely giving her goose bumps and making the hairs on the back of her neck stand up. She has only seen a shadow, but she’s heard the eerie giggle that seems to accompany it.
To top it all off

This was great. If you are a Buffy fan than these books are a fun distraction. This book read like an episode and was a quick read. So if you enjoyed Season 3 of Buffy (in which this story is set) then I'd pick this book up and enjoy the nostalgia.
UG! this book tried to do too much. there were student teachers, and Ethan Rayne, and an earth monster, and a Watcher's Watcher, and and and. For being such a short book 163 pgs, I thought I would have it done in a day, maybe took over a week!! I just couldn't get myself to care about this one. although it is amusing to think...the earth monster made his victim's dance and he took their life force ---- HMMMMMM, does that sound vaguely like Sweet from OMWF?? and this book was before OMWF ...more

Probably the lamest/worst buffy book I have ever read (and trust me, I've read a lot). It's as if the authors tried to cover many different things in such a small book. For example, Ethan Rayne is around, yet...... they don't really explain why he is in town, what he is up to, or why he leaves. But least the book keeps the scoobies alive for me.

Fast read, fairly unsubstantive but a nice diversion. It's amazing how dated the 90s slang feels already. Nice to revisit the Sunnydale gang, but nowhere near as good as the show, or even some of the other novelizations/spin-offs.

By the time she was fourteen, Laura Anne Gilman knew she would be an editor, a teacher, or a writer.

By thirty, she was all three. She's a little focused that way (when not being distracted by -oooh shiny!).

After fifteen years working in NY publishing, Laura Anne became a full-time writer, with more than twenty novels under her various bylines, including the Nebula Award-nominated Vineart War trilo
