In Every Generation by Kendare Blake

Rating : ★ ★ ★ ★

Thanks to NetGalley and Disney Publishing Worldwide for providing me with an eARC of this title in exchange for an honest review.

In every generation a slayer is born, one girl in all the world blah blah blah. If you’re reading this, you know the story. That is until Willow woke the slayer line and there isn’t just one, but many. Now, with the entire slayer population MIA, a new slayer was called the old fashioned way.

Frankie Rosenberg, daughter of the big bad witch Willow Rosenberg takes up the mantle through unexplained magics, becoming the first witch/slayer hybrid. With a few familiar faces and some new ones, the Scooby Gang returns!

Needless to say I am a huge Buffy fan and having the privilege to read this title early is still absolutely bananas to me. At 2% in I was hooked and had was prepared to read it in one sitting but I had to be responsible.

The pacing and plot might seem a little disjointed to some, but that’s because it’s written just like a tv show. The plot progression is more episodic with smaller arcs happening throughout the entire book with at least two major arcs taking place once. I thought it was a really cool choice for the book and it actually worked perfectly. After reading this I feel like I’ve watched the first season of the show and I kind of hate the cliffhanger. I need to know more.

Also, I’m probably completely out of the demographic since I’m in my 30’s but Buffy is my jam and I have to say I loved seeing Willow all grown up and likely closer to my age. It’s something that gives me the warm and fuzzies. Still, I think there’s a lot here for the younger generation that is just starting to discover the show. It makes my heart happy to know we’re going to be getting more great Buffy content.
