    The first in a quadrilogy entitled "The Lost Slayer" begins like your average Buffy plot: new Big Bad shows up in town with freaky acolytes and tries to take on the Slayer. Giles even gets knocked out! But then, in the last chapter the story turns incredibly interesting. I won't spoil it for you, but it's incredibly tantalizing. And nearly impossible to have portrayed on the small screen.

A big complaint I've had with several of the Buffy novels is that it's either a novelization of an actual episode with just a little extra thrown in (deleted scenes, if you will) or that it could've been an episode but didn't make the cut, for obvious reasons. But this, this is something different, and I'm very interested as to how it plays out. It's also gratifying that Golden writes these characters so well. You can almost hear the actors voicing the dialogue.

    The Lost Slayer is a novel in four parts which were published serially in separate volumes in the fashion of King's The Green Mile.

The story takes place in a future mirror-world, much like the famous Star Trek universe reached by the faulty transporter or perhaps more like one of the X-Men arcs where the past must be changed or the present saved in order to fix the future. The characterization is delightful and plausible, if somewhat reminiscent of the world created by Anya the demon in the episode where she granted Cordelia's wish that Buffy had never come to Sunnydale. (Especially Giles!) The serial nature of the original publication was excellent in that it re-created the episodic nature of the series in having to wait for the resolution to the cliff-hangers. This was one of the best Buffy novels.

    I'm a huge Buffy The Vampire Slayer fan and I'm a fan of how Christopher Golden writes Buffy books. He captures the essence of the characters. I can always hear the characters saying the words and never feel that they're acting out of character. The Lost Slayer was a quick and enjoyable book to read. It feels like the 2-parter stories from the tv series. In part one, Buffy runs into a group of vamps with bat tats on their faces and glowing orange eyes.

It feels like the 2-parter stories from the tv series. In part one, Buffy runs into a group of vamps with bat tats on their faces and glowing orange eyes. They creep her out and seem to have power over her. This can only mean trouble and a new bad has come to town and all while she's trying to have a normal college life too. The research begins as she calls upon Giles, Willow, Xander and Anya but reluctantly because she's been struggling internally with having to handle the responsibility of being the Slayer and not "The Slayer with Friends" along with her college struggles. They learn that the bat face vamps worship a god Camazotz who's come to town for nothing good of course. If that isn't enough, Buffy is visited by the ghost of Lucy Hanover, a former Slayer, who warns her of impending doom told to her by the Prophet! Is it more than she can handle? Will she let the Scooby gang help or is she too determined to do it all alone? You'll have to read and find out how it all goes wrong.....

    Fantastic Book. A great re introduction to the Buffy mythos and although the prose is at times clunky I loved the little details like "smelled of old blood" and the "stench of burning flesh" Paraphrased but this is stuff you don't think about when watching the series. Book 1 is bog standard Buffy universe stuff and is much like a prequel for the series.

Future Imperfect novels have a deep fascination for me as I am a huge Doctor Who fan. Everything from dark terrifying futures that have to be averted to simply a historical setting with one person not of that world. This is 'our' Buffy in a future world. But only 5 years forward so characters we know show up but they have been changed by this dark world. This was also done in The Wish and Dopplegangland to a much darker extent but I feel this book really rings out and enfleshes this world of darkness. Also....Really irritated at all the spoilers people are posting for the full series. I should be able to read a review for book 1 in a FOUR PART series without getting major twists ruined.

    I'm fascinated by media tie-ins like this, based on a property I'm very familiar with, which allows me to see the characters and other elements of the established world in a different way, in this case via the novelist's toolbox, including things like internal POV. Golden has a good handle on the speaking patterns of the characters, which is crucial for something like BTVS where the dialogue as written and performed was a big part of the overall vibe of the show.

    It’s October so that means I work at getting a handful of Buffy books off my shelf. This one being the first of many, it’s the first of four in a series that has Buffy saving the world again....in a different reality or Buffyverse. Buffy and her gang are up against a demon-god called Camazotz, a bat like thing that has many vampire minions. Only 134 pages so started and finished in one seating. On the the next.

    [3.25] I enjoyed the story but I think since it's supposed to be an alternate timeline to season 4 and I haven't even seen season 1 I didn't really feel connected to any of the characters. The story explained enough of who was friends with who, etc. without me getting confused but I wasn't as connected with the storyline. Reading this book made me think of when I read that Supergirl book except I felt the opposite with that book. I knew the characters already and knew their backstories.

    I can see why they packaged these into a single large novel. "part 1" is not really a standalone book in my opinion (probably why it was referred to as a serial). It is the set up to a story that I hope will be completed in the four parts that make up the lost slayer. Good start. I can see why they packaged these into a single large novel.

Sunnydale and she is determined to try and control all aspects of her life, so that she does not live in utter Chaos as she did all through high school. Unfortunately her new independent attitude is causing some tension between her and Willow, and the rest of the Scooby gang seems to be feeling it too. There’s a new big bad in town and his followers are sporting bat tattoos across their faces. They also have glowing orange eyes and an unsettling quite demeanour, which seems to be giving Buffy the Wiggins. Buffy needs help but is too stubborn to admit it and she can’t seem to bring herself to ask Willow for some assistance due to the tension. Now add to this the fact that Buffy has been receiving visits in her dreams from a former Slayer named Lucy Hanover who is trying to warn her of a prophecy that puts them all in danger due to Buffy’s actions and decision making and you can understand why Buffy is so stressed out. After a moment based on a hasty decision Buffy finds herself five years down the road in a future dimension where Vampires are running rampant and she is imprisoned. This book was a very fast read and quite exciting, it’s filled with all the wonderful one liners we all have come to love and expect. I found myself able to relate to Buffy and the frustrations she is going through in trying to adjust to a new stage of life and changing relationships with her friends. I can’t wait to get my hands on the rest of the series. A definite must read for any Buffy fan.

It was the writting style that bothered me enough to lower the rating. To me it felt like the author was trying too hard to make it as descriptive as it should have been. It was discriptive enough, but written in a more juvenile tone that threw it off some. Too many comparisons instead of thoughtful, to the point descriptions. It was casual in a wordy way that didn't feel right. Christopher Golden got the characters done well, did some good fight scenes, but I just didn't care for his writing style. The other thing that bothered me was how annoyingly slow the beginning felt. The real intense and interesting stuff didn't come until about page 90 or so. Of course, when I find the next part I will read it because the plot was interesting and it ended on a chliff hanger, a well placed one actually. But I would still prefer it be all in one book. It had good parts and bad like any other. *Shrugs*

This gives Golden licence to kill off many characters both new and old, before returning Buffy to our time line where everything is almost as before. It's well enough written, with reflections on how the other characters would have developed in five years where they had continued the fight without Buffy. I'm troubled, though, as I was in the other book I read by this author, that the story ends up on the wrong side of colonialism - Camazotz, who is after all a native American entity, is rapidly outsmarted by vampire Giles who takes charge of his realm and allows the indigenous inhabitants only as much licence as he finds amusing; and this is presented as a natural development. So I may cast my reading of Buffy a bit wider, but I think I will try other writers next.

In the first part, Buffy is struggling to balance her life as a Slayer and as a College Student.

But the Slayer part comes to the fore as she meets a group of very powerful Vampires, tattooed with a bat emblem across strangely glowing eyes. With ghosts warning her that she is about to make a mistake that will plunge the world into hell, she is ever more determined to succeed on her own - until Giles is kidnapped and an old God is set loose in Sunnydale. But in trying to help, she is catapulted into the future and into the hell she was trying to prevent. A brilliant premise. I was instantly caught up in the story and devoured the short book in just a few hours. The writing, as ever, is excellent and the characters exactly like those on the TV so you can see the action unfolding. The only niggle I have is that it is very obvious what mistake Buffy makes and it is a bit frustrating that the characters don't, but even so it is well worth reading to see how the future pans out. A great start - on to the next.

    It's like watching an episode. Truly, madly, deeply!

As this is a serial novel and "Prophecies" is part 1 of 4 we get only the start of a bigger adventure and I do have questions. At the same time now I have all faith that Golden will continue the story in a satisfying and equally suspenseful way. Yet I loved this beginning up to the bang of an ending. Almost a shame this was not an actual script for the TV show. Please, dear library, give me the next installment as quickly as un-humanly possible!

The problem I had with the book is that its extremely slow start coupled with the massive cliffhanger at the end gave me the nagging feeling that this series was divided in four books just for editorial convenience. As it stands barely anything happened in the first half of the book, and I felt like it was starting to drag on while I was just aching to learn something about who the Lost Slayer could be or the titular prophecies.

    Prophecies is a good novel with an interesting story. Buffy is facing a new foe, in the form of a demon-god. His vampire followers aren't like other vampires that Buffy has faced before, which causes her to be concerned. Buffy is also warned of some impending doom by a Prophet, but she is unable to figure out what will come to pass until it is too late.

Though I don't particularly enjoy her attitude, she has her reasons for being this way and I respect that. The story takes a while to develop, which, though leaving you in suspense, is a bit off-putting. It is an interesting concept, though, so for that I give the book 4 stars.

Thinking back 13 years, I recall Buffy's "present" soul being transported and trapped into her future self when she's in a world turned sour.

    Buffy is trying to find a balance between being the Slayer and being Buffy Summers. As she tries to keep her worlds apart, she finds herself keeping her friends out of her Slayer life in order to prove she can handle being both people and keep her friends safe. In doing so she lands Giles in a bad situation while almost getting her and her friends killed. Thinking she finds a way to fix what she's done, she trusts a spirit who tricks her and forces her into a prison in more ways than one.

    WOW! This one was great. Since this 4-book Buffy series takes place in an alternate future, I feel like it's fair game and anything can happen. This one ended on a massive cliffhanger, too. Good thing I have the omnibus edition so I didn't have to wait for the second one. Otherwise, that ending would have been pure torture if I didn't have it! WOW! This one was great.

    I really like the TV series so I thought I would give some of the books a try. They don't follow the plots of the TV show - which is a good thing in my opinion. Easy to read but packed with the same one-liners and Zings of the show, they are definetly worth your time if you are a Buffy Fan.

    I've read this book before (I think) but it was so long ago (see "I think" comment) that I remember very little. It was a satisfactory beginning to a book series. I plan to read the next one which I've also read before (I think). I anticipate a better book in book 2.
