To be honest I wasn't expecting much from this book. But I really enjoyed it.
When the TV show first aired I thought it looked interesting. Cool concept, female badass kicking ass Buffy style: I was onboard. Except after a couple of episodes I gave up. The show was limping with material that should have had it leaping. I was honestly surprised it made it to two seasons.
On a whim I picked up this volume (libraries have the best prices for those uncertain reads). And this was good. This was everything I had expected of the TV show. What's wrong with doing direct adaptations these days?
