Oz was one of the best Buffy characters... everybody wanted to be cool and unflappable like Oz. This book is a well written account of his post-Sunnydale journeys, spiritual and physical, and his brief and bittersweet return.

A book that is based on the series of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Do you remember during the fourth season when Oz left Willow so he can learn to control his curse of being a werewolf? This is the story of his side adventure.

This book pleasantly surprised me as I wasn't sure if the character Oz could carry his own novel. I like his character but on the show he wasn't the most talkative and how would this character be carried over into print form. The author did a good job with the character. As of

Not bad at all for a spin-off book. The story takes place during season four of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and sees werewolf Oz leave Sunnydale to find a way to control the wolf inside him. Oz was always one of my favourite characters in the series and, as we never got to know much about him, it was nice to read a book that's all about him. Golden does a good job describing the different locations, and his depiction of Oz rings true. A good, quick read.

I enjoyed this, book, even reading it now years after the series ended. It was bittersweet, though, seeing what Oz finds when he returns to Sunnydale after all he goes through in the book. It was an incredibly quick read, but kept me busy on a rainy boring Sunday.

This book was 100% about Oz. I don't think Buffy or the others even had any dialogue in the book and are rarely mentioned. While I like Oz I didn't think he'd carry a book by himself, but the author did a good job with it. Good read for the Buffyverse.

This is one of the best Buffy novels out there. The story of Oz' journey after he left in Season 4 is better than I expected. There are some great new supporting characters, and a surprising old face. It's great insight into how Oz learned to control his Werewolf powers.

The story was good, but I don't know why they made a novelization of a comic book story when the comic was frankly better. The story just works better with pictures.

Oz was one of my favorite characters in the Buffy TV series. I always wondered where he went and what happened when he left, but I missed the other characters in this book.

À réserver aux fans qui veulent savoir ce qu’a fait Oz durant son absence. Christopher Golden écrit bien mieux d’ordinaire.
