THE DARK IS COMING. . . .

New York City in 1977 is vampire heaven. Serial killer Son of Sam is often blamed for their hits, and a citywide blackout gives them free reign of the streets, allowing them to get away with murder. Spike and his beloved Drusilla are in the Big Apple taking advantage of the situation, as is Vampire Slayer Nikki Wood, who has hunkered down with her son, Robin, in a Times Square apartment where she thinks they'll be safe.

But no matter where she goes, Nikki has to watch her back. Spike has only one thing on his mind: to slay a slayer. Adding to Spike's list of challenges is a corrupt local vampire community that catches wind of his presence, and when they start messing with him, things get bloody interesting.

Blackout is a great addition to the Buffy universe. Set in '77, it is the story of how Spike killed his second slayer - Nikki Wood. It is fun fast paced book that gives us a background on what events led up to Spike and Nikki's fateful meeting in the subway. The author did a great job in keeping true to the Buffy universe and made several references to little things that were on both Buffy and Angel - making the book feel real in the Buffy/Angel universe - which is very important to me that the author stay true to what was created on screen!

if you're a true spike fan you will love this book. it stays true to the episodes in which we see spike in 1977. Nikkie comes to life for more than just a brief moment. you see her journey into the world of slayerdom and how she changes the world around her for the better. you become invested in her character even though you already know her fate. you see her as a granddaughter, a young teenage mom, and as the slayer. you learn to respect her...and up til her death...you do. This is without a doubt the story of Spikes victory over another slayer but you also get to take a look inside the mind of a vampire and find out the real reason he didn't bite her like he did the first slayer he killed. It also shows you just how far he'll go for a good time. It brings back places long since forgotten and makes them live and breath again. the verbage used is just like I remember hearing my cousins use back in the day. I, being born in the early 70's, remember some of what the author talks about in the book. like I said if you are a true spike fan you will enjoy this book.
