Adult/High School-A fast, fun read. Retired after marrying her demon-slayer partner and having a child, Kate Conner, aka Buffy the Vampire Slayer, moves with her family to a "safe" town to settle down and lead a normal life. Her husband is killed in a car accident and she remarries, has another child, and settles into a happy family life. Of course, when you know about demons and the realities of the dark side, nothing could be that simple. Certainly the cast here is complex. Daughter Allie becomes aware of her legacy when kidnapped. Saved by her mother, the teen now wants to join the hunters. Eddie, Kate's elderly demon-hunting mentor, lives with the family as a sort of adopted grandfather. An irascible sort by nature, he's making more waves than usual as he makes more and more demands to define his place in the household. David Long, an attractive teacher at Allie's school, may or may not actually be Kate's beloved first husband. Stuart Conner, Kate's ambitious second husband, is running for San Diablo County Attorney, blissfully unaware of his wife's alter ego. Now her not quite three-year-old son Timmy's playdates are being interrupted by demons trying to revive a long-imprisoned Mater demon by the name of Andramelech. What's a mom to do? Teenage girls may enjoy a glimpse of what "Buffy" has to look forward to. Serious adventure handled with humor and affection.-Dana Cobern-Kullman, Luther Burbank Middle School, Burbank, CA Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
