Comment: Three volumes, no slipcase (hence only Good). For all three books: Light shelf wear to cover. A touch of tanning to page edges, mainly to bottom edge, otherwise all pages are clean, intact and tightly bound. The books have a very slight curl to them.

This trilogy is written by two different authors, and it shows. It felt like one wrote a story about a long feud between rival magicians and the other inserted the Buffy characters into it. The characters are not well portrayed, with the possible exception of Oz, whose subdued humour comes across well. Giles is a series of clichés, more Terry Thomas than Anthony Head. The story is put into roughly season 3 chronology (Willow still with Oz, Amy still human, no Dawn yet etc). The Buffy character herself is extremely underused. Three books about a vampire slayer but no vampires are slain. Spike and Drusilla make an appearance (although their exit from the story is rather sudden and poorly developed) and Angel has quite a significant role. There is a guest appearance from Ethan Rayne, who is poorly written and again his speech is a collection of clichés from an American's perception of a British character (this was done much better in the show). The frequent use of the word "magick" and the even worse variants magickal and magickally is just irritating, as there is no precedent in the TV show for it - there was even a shop called Magic (no k) Box. There is a rather interesting plot twist briefly involving Xander, but overall this is trilogy is a disappointing mismatch of styles that could have been better as a standalone story without the juxtaposition of the Buffy cast. That said, the premise of a particularly powerful character, with a series of monk-like minions, intent on separating the barriers between dimensions and allowing hell dimension creatures to overrun earth is somewhat reminiscent of the later Glory story arc. In summary, then, very little original material, the known characters are not well represented and, while it may pass the time, as it is not a truly awful series of books, it is not great.
