Into every generation a Slayer is born…

Nina and her twin sister, Artemis, are far from normal. It’s hard to be when you grow up at the Watcher’s Academy, which is a bit different from your average boarding school. Here teens are trained as guides for Slayers—girls gifted with supernatural strength to fight the forces of darkness. But while Nina’s mother is a prominent member of the Watcher’s Council, Nina has never embraced the violent Watcher lifestyle. Instead she follows her instincts to heal, carving out a place for herself as the school medic.

Until the day Nina’s life changes forever.

Thanks to Buffy, the famous (and infamous) Slayer that Nina’s father died protecting, Nina is not only the newest Chosen One—she’s the last Slayer, ever. Period.

As Nina hones her skills with her Watcher-in-training, Leo, there’s plenty to keep her occupied: a monster fighting ring, a demon who eats happiness, a shadowy figure that keeps popping up in Nina’s dreams…

But it’s not until bodies start turning up that Nina’s new powers will truly be tested—because someone she loves might be next.

One thing is clear: Being Chosen is easy. Making choices is hard.

I was not a fan of Artemis or Helen. Agree with you on both of those points.

They're really frustrating me at the moment!


Karen Barber | 10144 comments Expected to have to wait for publication, but got approved on NetGalley so can’t resist!


Karen Barber | 10144 comments Up to ch9. I’m surprised Nina isn’t more annoyed by her family.


Karen Barber | 10144 comments Up to ch18. White has just the right blend of humour and action. Loving Nina’s reaction to being in the middle of things, but don’t understand why Artemis is so prickly towards her now.


Karen Barber | 10144 comments Up to ch25. Honora...don’t like her. Maybe she’ll turn out to be doing something amazing, but I don’t think so.


Karen Barber | 10144 comments Up to ch28. Sure there’s going to be a twist...but also waiting for further scenes from Doug.


Karen Barber | 10144 comments Finished. Now, that was like the best Buffy moments all wrapped up and presented with a bow. Review on home page. Applause...


✨Skye✨ | 3161 comments Can anyone tell me if I need to be familiar with the Buffy story to get this? I only ever watched bits and pieces growing up but I have this as an arc...

Skye - You don't have to be. There are references and hidden gems for people who have watched the series, but the author does explain the world as though you're a newbie.

So, I actually had to look up the books by this author to double check that she didn't write the Buffy series because I was completely confused by all the references to the TV show plots. But now I get it. I think it is kind of cool too. One always wonders what happens to the characters after cancellation, this was a fun spin off / fanfiction story. I could be talked into the next one in 2020.
