Buffy and the gang are back in the continuation of Series 8. Faith is employed by Giles to go after a rogue Slayer, one who is abusing her powers and hell bent on killing Buffy and taking charge of all the new Slayers. She has the help of a magician working for Twilight. To do this Faith must infiltrate her life and as she is part of the British aristocracy Faith must learn how to conduct herself in high society. A new ball gown is in order as well as etiquette lessons from Giles. Looks like he has his work cut out for him...

Buffy and Willow go on their own quest against Twilight. They seek advice from a demon who shows them some of the lies they have been telling each other and themselves. Seems the Slayers have been getting money from an "annoymous" benefactor and Willow is shocked to learn the truth. The relationship between Willow and Kennedy is also explored further.

A fun addition to the series, I really like Faith and always thought she got a rough deal with everyone loving Buffy best. I will be interested to see how her storyline intertwines with Buffy's who has major reasons for not trusting her (and vice versa, there was the stabbing incident after all).

Such a timely review as I just checked out vol 3 and it's been a while since I've read volume 2. Your review was the perfect refresher. :)
