HALLOWEEN RAIN

It's been a slow time slaying-wise, but Halloween is coming and while the later Halloween would see this situation continuing, there's no such luck here.

Instead, Giles tells the Buffster that Halloween has its origins in the druid feast of Samuinn, while Xander and Willow chip in with tales that rain on Halloween causes scarecrows to come alive.

With an early run-in with some vamps at the Bronze, Giles' history lesson, some local folklore and plenty of fighting, Halloween Rain could easily be an episode from season one or early season two.

There are perhaps rather too many pop culture references thrown in for my liking, but this was the first original Buffy novel so it's unfair to be too harsh on those things.  It's also unfortunate for the authors that most of the story was contradicted on TV in Halloween.

It's not the greatest Buffy novel in the world, but it's a fun runaround and a reasonable start to the original fiction range, especially given some of the other early YA novels. BACK TO THE TOP
