Publisher's Summary

Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Suicide Squad in this adult dark, rompy novel in which the most beloved villains from Buffy must team up to stop the Slayer from ending their evil universe! 

Demondale, Callifornia, 1999...Like Sunnydale, but whole lot more evil. Step into this alternate reality, where chaos reigns supreme. 

The Mayor's sun-shade has created permanent darkness over Sunnydale, fully opening the Hellmouth once and for all. Now the newly christened Demondale has become a safe haven for vampires, beasts, and all types of ruffians. It's never been better to be bad. 

Aspiring supervillains (and super nerds) Jonathan and Andrew attempt to hold their own in a town full of monsters, while eleven-hundred-year-old vengeance demon Anya is just looking for something to give her life purpose again, spending her days working at an evil juice bar. But soon word gets out that there's a new Big Bad on the scene, one more powerful and more destructive than anyone who has come before. She, of course, is Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And she's hell-bent on rooting out all of this reality's evil by any means necessary. 

Now Jonathan, Andrew, and Anya must recruit a team of Demondale's most notorious villains—including Angelus, Spike, Drusilla, and even Ripper the malevolent magic shop owner—in order to save their world. But it'll be no easy feat to put their pride and differences aside and stop the worst thing that has ever come to town: good. 

Written by acclaimed author and Buffy super fan Lily Anderson, this novel brings together Buffy's most devious and beloved villains from the Trio to the Whirlwind to Anya, Glory, and Vampire Willow. This is one apocalypse Buffy fans are not going to want to miss!

Another Buffyverse disappointing novel

The characterizations are horrible! Did the author even watch the show? Angelus is probably the worst. In the show Angelus is a himbo with a massive ego, here he's written as a boring know it all. And somehow all knowing about slayers. (wrong vampire there for the slayer killer! Angelus avoids Slayers.) Spike is dull (how the hell did she manage that?) Buffy's narrative voice isn't even close. And she is crazy overpowered. I love Buffy but she needed her friends to survive and Anya could have handed her ass to her without breaking a sweat? So how did she defeat a whole universe of Vengeance Demons? For some reason Jonathan and Andrew are the main characters? Why? Anya was the only enjoyable character.

I loved Buffy back in the day so I keep giving the novels a chance only to be disappointed. None of the novels capture the essence or feel of the show or even the movie. This book is no exception.

Great concept, poorly executed. Hopefully someone turns it into fanfic. Buffy fanfiction is so well written the novels haven't come close to touching the fanfic.

Totally immersed in the Buffyverse

This is the first time I've been fully immersed in the Buffyverse since the show. if you are a fan, go listen now! The characters were so recognisable. Their essence captured perfectly. The twists of the alternative universe all entirely plausible and some I would have liked to keep...Willow...Dru *swoons* Thank you and please write more.
