Fairly decent outing brings to a close the "season eight" phase of the series and sets the stage for what's to come in the Buffyverse. And there's a fairly significant death involved, so....

The final book in Buffy's eighth season does a good job of wrapping up the various plot lines and setting up the dystopian world view of the future stand-alone novel "Fray." I do see why the Twilight motivations from the prior book occurred, but I still don't have to like it :) Also, the big spoilery death that I won't reveal seemed cheap and thrown in there just to have a death at the end of the season, and I don't approve of that either. But hey, Joss is boss.

The season had its highs and lows, over all it was worth reading but definitely my least favorite of all. And I don't think it was just the translation from tv to graphic novel, it was character motivations and story choices.

Still, looking forward to season 9, which is promised to be a backtrack to the glory days of Season 1 with just a girl, a stake, her friends and a lot of dusted vamps.

Almost gave it an extra star for the nekkid Spike!
