Read ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Å Doranna Durgin characters ☆ Tales of the Slayer Vol 1 100 Who have influenced and are influenced by the traditions and mythologies of yore From ancient Greece to aristocratic Slayers holding court in revolution era France to the legend of the Bloody Countess Elizabeth Bathory to 1920's Munich each girl has a personal history a shared moral code and a commitment to conuer evil regardless of the cos. I originally owned and read this collection of short stories for the Buffy universe back when the collection originally came out in 2001 However some years later while in university I loaned the book to a friend and then I never saw the book again I recently bought or rebought all of the Buffy novels that I was missing and have begun re reading or resuming my reads on the entire collection In re reading this first volume of Tales of the Slayer I realized how little of it I actually remembered The only story I could recall with any detail was White Doe and even that one was vastly different from how I remembered it almost 19 years later But here we go a review of each short story in the series and my first review ever of a Buffy novelA Good Run A fun twist on a well known Greek legend Most classic enthusiasts can recall the story about Phidippides run from Athens to Sparta to reuest help to fight against the invading Persian forces Greg Rucka takes this story and adds to it by having a Slayer running alongside an unknowing Phidippides From there we go from the long run to the ensuing Battle of Marathon and the role the Slayer unknowingly played in the unlikely Athenian victory against the Persian armyvampires The only downside to the story is the somewhat abrupt ending but that makes senseWhite Doe As a girl whose parents lived for 4 years in Manteo NC and who vacationed there for a week almost every summer this story fascinated me and is the only story that has stuck with throughout the almost 2 decades since I last read it Virginia Dare is the Slayer and in telling her story Christie Golden reveals the truth behind the mystery of what happened to the disappeared Roanoke Colony Interestingly there is a small group of theorists who genuinely believe that the colony was wiped out not by vampires but by a zombie plague It s pretty laughable as a theory but I did think about this story as well as the alien abduction theory as I read through this short story again Once again an abrupt ending but that is a pitfall of almost all of these storiesdie Bluntgrafin Yvonne Navarro s Hungarian slayer story is hauntingly disturbing While one can tell the story will not have a good ending from the very beginning Rendor the Watcher sending in Ildiko to work for Countess Bathory without knowing if she was simply a terrible person or a vampire or possible demon was lazy Watcher method on his part And poor Ildikothe poor girl had no idea what she was doing I spent most of the story waiting for something to actually happen and for her to just ATTACK or something but I kind of like that Navarro just kept building the tension and building it and building itand then you never get an answer You get a disturbing ending that leaves you with a million uestions and a sense of injustice that makes you want to scream But it was definitely an ending you should expect from a well written horror storyUnholy Madness Props to Nancy Holder for writing a historical piece that is so characteristic of the times that I genuinely hated the main character And I m pretty sure we re supposed to Marie Christine du Lac is the Slayer during the French Revolution and she as well as the Watcher s Council works for the crowned heads of Europe Marie Christine only fights vampires that are threatening the King ueen and the Royal Court The peasant poor in the view of her and her Watcher deserve to die because they choose to live in sualor Marie Christine does change her views by the end of the story but only because she discovers she actually was one of those undeserving poor who was given a made up aristocratic history when she was seen to be a Potential Naturally the villain of the piece is a vampire who not only changes the poor into a mob of vampires but also encourages the masses to rise up and revolt against the Crown And while you want to feel bad for the aristocracy I know that I at least found myself rooting for the vampires and was not upset at all the see most of Marie Christine s life collapse around her She was after all a bit of a classist idiotMornglom Dreaming This one was just plain fun I mean Doranna Durgin has the sound of Kentucky 100% DOWN I have visited the state numerous times and could see the rural areas of it in my head as she was describing it I could hear Mollie s twang and see her handmade wedding dress as she started down the aisle that she never got to finish walking And can I just say I love that the villain in this one is for once not a vampire And it was also nice to see the beginning of a Slayer s journey on this one Though now I wonder how long her journey lastedSilent Screams Mel Odom wrote a truly haunting story with this one Playing with the 1920s popularity of German Expressionist silent films and making it into a truly horrific end scene While all of the stories are at heart about Slayers and their Watchers this one truly shows the intimacy of such a relationship We are told the story entirely from the Watcher s perspective and we see how one day changed the life of his charge Britta We see how important it is to Watchers to be strong for their Slayer while at the same time facing the truth that a Watcher is not a Slayer and therefore is at a distinct disadvantage This story was surprisingly heartbreaking and I wanted to wrap Friedrich in a warm hug but also slap him upside the back of his head for going back on his word to Britta And I lament that we never get to hear the end of this particular storyAnd White Splits the Night A Slayer of color in the segregated southern United States Needless to say this one packs a wallop My favorite bit is how Yvonne Navarro notes that the vampires in this town hide their monstrosity behind white hoods as the Ku Klux Klan They hide the fact that they re monsters behind monstrous ideasactions A Russian doll of evilness And the ending I rooted for Asha and Laurent so hard in that final battle I was both so proud of them and so sad for them at the same timeIt is rare for me to enjoy all parts of a story collection as much as I enjoyed this one The characters were all believable the stories were eual parts fascinating and horrifying and I was left wanting to know about all of these Slayers and Watchers except for maybe Marie Christine because I spent the whole story hoping she got guillotined On to Volume 2

Read ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Å Doranna Durgin characters ☆ Tales of the Slayer Vol 1 100 O stalked the earth and the forces of darkness in fierce solitudeNikki the funky hipster whose demise at Spike's hands lent an urban edge to his wardrobe and a bigger bounce to his swagger Slayers by nature have a limited life expectancy; for each one who falls another rises to take her place Tales of the Slayer Vol 1 chronicles Slayers past. Buffy is one of my favorite TV shows from the 90 s I still remember watching the premiere and thinking wow this is SO much better than the movie One year I was given this short story collection as a gift and I couldn t put it down I enjoyed reading the stories of Slayers that came before Buffy It starts back in the days of ancient Greece and goes all the way until the 1950 s Here are some of my personal favorites The White Doe This tale follows the life of a slayer named White Doe who ends up being raised by a local tribe of Indians after her own family and fellow colonists are killed by vampires The tale is actually based on the real disappearance of the Roanoke Colony in the 1500 sSilent Screams This story follows a slayer in the 1920 s who finds way than she bargained for when she goes to witness a movie being filmed Unholy Madness I have a bit of a love hate relationship with this story set during the days of Marie Antoinette Marie Christine is a Slayer who spends her time serving the aristocrats and not caring what happens to the common folk She is pretty unlikable but she does manage to do something pretty cool at one point Even if it does ultimately end up being stupid Other stories deal with Elizabeth Bathory and racism in the south during the 50 s as well as small town life in the 19th century Overall it s a good read that I think respects the canon of the Buffy world I m sure any fan would enjoy this collection
