Book Description

5 Oct 1998 Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Book 3)
The seedy carnival looks like just the thing to give Buffy and her best buds, Xander and Willow, a break from staking bloodsuckers. Some greasy food, a few cheap thrills--what more could a Slayer ask for?

As if there is not enough fun stuff happening in Sunnydale, a carnival comes to town. Buffy, Xander and Willow head out for some serious rest and relaxation only to discover things are not as they seem and now the corpses popping up around town bear the marks of coyotes not vampires. But while Buffy is suspicious, Xander is smitten with Rose, a seductive siren from the carnival midway, while Willow has caught the eye of Lonnie, the barker. Somehow, you just know all the pieces are going to come together and it will then be Slayer time.
My complaint, such as it is, is that John Vornholt has made Buffy, Xander and Willow more like real teenagers than they appear on the show, which ends up being something of a tradeoff with the show's trademark humor. I know how ironic it is to judge his realism by the standard of a television fantasy. This is still an above average Buffy novel. It is also rather interesting to read this book and know that Willow is going to end up dating Oz down the road, since our favorite gal pal spends some serious timing kissing a carney guy who turns out to be a werecoyote. Of course a lot of water has gone under the bridge since then, but the true Buffy fan still remembers when.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling! 14 Nov 1999

Even though I'm only twelve, I seem to know Buffy very well. I read all of her books and watch the episodes every week. Coyote Moon is one of the best books about Buffy. In this story Buffy is on her vacation from school. During this time a carnival comes to town and it seems to be normal until the coyotes start to appear... I don't want to give the whole story away, so I'll just say, I recommend all Buffy fans to read this book after you read The Harvest and Halloween Rain.

4.0 out of 5 stars Carnivals, teen hormones & coyotes? 25 Jun 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
The story is set in the long Summer holidays at the end of Season 1. The gang at this stage comprises only Buffy, Willow, Xander and Giles. The book is a thriller in that there is a reasonable paced story, interaction between the main characters, some mystery (the coyotes), some humour and plenty of action. It reminded me of some of the early stories where Xander's hormones get him into trouble and the gang have to pull him out. I liked the parts where Buffy has to use her brain rather than just her brawn to understand what is happening.

What didn't gel so well is that by the end of season 1 the gang is tightly knitted and "street wise" which didn't come through as well as it should. There's no explanation for the missing vampires (including Angel). It also ignores Buffy being with her Dad during the Summer - though this may be because the book was written before Season 2 aired.

Overall I enjoyed reading it for the second time and would recommend it to any Buffy fan (though in 2010 it was bundled with two other Buffy novels which may be the better buy).
