I realize that this book is not intended to win a literary prize, it is there just to entertain teenagers, I presume, but still I could not shake off the feeling of being robbed of time, haha. There is a big difference between fantasy and unreality and here I see more of the latter than the first. Buffy is a vampire slayer, but we learn nothing of vampires. Angel's history is only hinted at, there is a vampire leader, but the rest obviously does not concern us. Buffy anyway kills them like fodde...more
Obsidian Fate is an exciting and fast-paced entry into the Buffy the Vampire Slayer novels. The Mesoamerican mythology aspect was very interesting and a subject that fit the Buffy series perfectly. Also, I loved that Mayor Wilkins and Mr. Trick from season three were included in the plot since they are two of the most memorable villians from the television series. What made this book so interesting was the team up of the the magic mirror, the jaguar acting as an Aztec god, and the vampires of Su...more

I read this in late December 2006 and I don't know if it was my ADD kicking in but I had a lot of trouble reading it. It was a very good storyline for Buffy, one I would love to have seen an episode of but kinda hard to keep my attention. I did love it though so I'm not knocking it.
i was craving some buffy n this did the trick but i must say it isnt one of my fav buffys but not the worst either.i would just save it to read after the better ones. i do t no y but i felt the end lag a bit. but it still did its job n i felt buffy satisfitw!!

Not the best buffy book, not the worst. Decent read, and an original idea for the buffyverse. Takes place during season 3....Mayor and Mr. Trick are around, no faith. To sum it up this book is Buffy meets Aztec Rituals!
Read this book many years ago, and in French, so I'm not entirely sure I got the whole book right, but it was interesting enough to make me finish it. In French. Which is not my first, nor second, language, I might add.
For some reason, I had a hard time getting into this book. I kept reading a couple pages and then putting it down. When I finished the book I liked it, but the first half of the book didn't grab me.
The author has a great grip on the characters and writes well, but I didnt find the plot all that interesting
This series keeps deceiving me... Worst than any other Buffy books...
Again, read a long time ago
