I love Buffy, so it was easier to overlook some negatives in this book, but it really could have been much better. The first story, Coyote Moon, had some pretty awful writing. It was very simplistic and felt like a mediocre fanfiction, though the actual story was decent. Not great, but entertaining enough.

The other two stories were better. The stories were more developed and in depth and the writing was an improvement as well. Still not great, but I think that maybe trying to capture the dialogue style of the show made it difficult as it just made it seem kind of cheesy.

I didn't like that the stories took place in the beginning, shortly after Buffy became the slayer. If you're a fan (like I am), its kind of hard to just forget about everything that happened throughout the series and go back with a clean slate. But, being such a huge fan, I guess some iffy Buffy stories are better than none at all, so it was ok reading. I wanted more, but will deal with what I can get.
