Attention fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer! With perfect tone and lots of amazing references to both the TV show and the movie, Slayer is an excellent addition to the Buffyverse. Pure fun written with love by an incredible author.

— Lindsey

In this thrilling fantasy set in the world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Nina’s entire life takes a turn when she discovers that she is a Slayer, destined to fight demons. As she’s suddenly thrust into the spotlight—somewhere she’d never thought she’d be with her twin sister Artemis, who’s always taken the lead—her relationships are tested, secrets are uncovered and a mystery unravels.

This book has achingly realistic characters that will leave you frustrated and satisfied, hating and loving them from chapter to chapter. The plot keeps you on the edge of your seat, and you’ll find yourself rooting for Nina as she makes questionable choices that will decide the fate of those around her and the world. And the best part is, you don’t have to watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer to read this book!

Description


A New York Times bestseller
A Publishers Weekly bestseller

From bestselling author Kiersten White comes a brand-new series set in the world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer that introduces a new Slayer as she grapples with the responsibility of managing her incredible powers that she’s just beginning to understand.

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.
