About The Book:
Title: IN EVERY GENERATION (Volume 1)
Author: Kendare Blake
Pub. Date: January 4, 2022
Formats: Hardcover, eBook, audiobook
A new Slayer for a new generation…
Frankie Rosenberg is passionate about the environment, a sophomore at New Sunnydale High School, and the daughter of the most powerful witch in Sunnydale history. Her mom, Willow, is slowly teaching her magic on the condition that she use it to better the world. But Frankie’s happily quiet life is upended when new girl Hailey shows up with news that the annual Slayer convention has been the target of an attack, and all the Slayers—including Buffy, Faith, and Hailey’s older sister Vi—might be dead. That means it’s time for this generation’s Slayer to be born.
But being the first ever Slayer-Witch means learning how to wield a stake while trying to control her budding powers. With the help of Hailey, a werewolf named Jake, and a hot but nerdy sage demon, Frankie must become the Slayer, prevent the Hellmouth from opening again, and find out what happened to her Aunt Buffy, before she’s next.
Get ready for a whole new story within the world of Buffy!
The first in an all-new series by New York Times best-selling author Kendare Blake continues the world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer featuring the next generation of Scoobies and Slayers who must defeat a powerful new evil.
So, I really enjoyed this as a longtime Buffy fan. However, there were a few things I didn’t like. Specifically how Willow and her sexuality were handled. I’m saying this as someone who cried at the representation within Buffy when it came to Willow, she was the first queer character I was exposed to. So to know how Frankie was conceived, with no agency for Willow, was a little disheartening. And then the “will they won’t they” between Willow and Oz was infuriating because Willow is a lesbian. She’s gay!
Other than that, this book was a whole lot of nostalgia that I loved. The new Scoobies were awesome, and I love the inclusion of Vi who had a minor role in season 7. I’m excited to see if this continues, because I think that we need novels like these right now to introduce these old fandoms to new people. So overall, I think it’s worth picking up!
About Kendare Blake:
Kendare Blake is the New York Times bestselling author of several novels and short stories. Her work is sort of dark, always violent, and features passages describing food from when she writes while hungry. She was born in July in Seoul, South Korea, but doesn’t speak a lick of Korean, as she was packed off at a very early age to her adoptive parents in the United States. That might be just an excuse, though, as she is pretty bad at learning foreign languages. She lives and writes in Gig Harbor, Washington, with her husband, their cat son Tyrion Cattister, red Doberman dog son Obi-Dog Kenobi, rottie mix dog daughterAgent Scully, and naked Sphynx cat son Armpit McGee.
