Book: In Every Generation
Author: Kendare Blake
This is my 17th read for the year
This is the story of Frankie Rosenberg. She is the daughter of Willow, who was part of the original Buffy and the Scooby gang. These days - Sunnydale is quiet and reserved. Frankie wakes up one morning freakishly strong, and is told that there has been a horrible accident at a gathering for all the slayers and she may now be the new slayer. And the only one left. As Willow and her friends come to grips with the new reality, Frankie has to be trained to defeat an evil that has come to Sunnydale on the heals of the slayer demise. She and her friends - which include a warewolf and a demon - are now in charge of the next generation to fight off evil.
This book was not good. I finished it only because I loved Buffy back in the day and was enjoying the slight nastalgia that was between these pages. But I should have quit the book. It is 400 pages of fan fiction. It is not well written. It has horrible jokes that are the same over and over. I was suprirsed to find out that the writer was an adult and not a 17 year old teenager. The diaglogue was just okay. The characters were likable enough, but it was written too juvenile for me.
I very rarely DNF books. I think all authors who put in the work deserve to have their books finished. But I will not be recommedning this one or reading the next two in the series.
