The Bad: Billy the vampire slayer. Yay for including more gay characters. Boo for making a weird situation out of it. There are men who slay vampires, but they aren't slayers. I appreciate what they're trying to do here, but calling him a slayer, just because he's attracted to dudes is ridiculous. Men don't have the powers bestowed upon a slayer. Billy doesn't have the power either, because sexuality doesn't define gender. Slayers are women. Kennedy is a lesbian and that didn't take away her slayer abilities. It has nothing to do with who you love and you can't just go around calling every person a slayer when they clearly haven't been mystically called.
I like "the monsters are real and we know it" types of stories. I liked the early Anita Blake books and the Sookie Stackhouse books I have read (southern vampire?), as well as a number of other similar books. With vampires, demons and slayers in the public eye, it adds a whole new dimension to the Buffyverse.
The only disappointment was that I wish Buffy had made a couple of different choices, but then these choices do fit with her grown-up self. I will be buying the next book and the one after that and...
can only be described as a GLAAD PSA.
A bullied, misunderstood gay kid in a small town gets attacked by a vamp, the cute guy he secretly has a crush on appears for no reason whatsoever and helps him kill it, and despite having no powers or training, the two decide that they can be slayer and watcher. The rest of the book involves them killing zomires while smiling constantly and making way too many flirtatious one liners. So the story is predictable and clichéd, the characters are never developed in the slightest, and it's never explained how these kids are able to kill so many vamps or why they should be the ones doing it. I expected better.
