Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season 8 Library Edition Volume 2
Since the destruction of the Hellmouth, the Slayers have gotten organised and are kicking some serious undead butt. But not everything's fun and firearms, as an old enemy reappears and Dawn experiences some serious growing pains. Meanwhile, one of the 'Buffy' decoy slayers is going through major pain of her own.
Alyssa Gardner has been down the rabbit hole. She was crowned Queen of the Red Court and faced the bandersnatch. She saved the life of Jeb, the boy she loves and escaped the machinations of the disturbingly appealing Morpheus. Now all she has to do is graduate high school. That would be easier without her mother, freshly released from an asylum, acting more protective than she needs to. And it would be much simpler if the mysterious Morpheus didn't show up for school one day to tempt her with another dangerous quest. Could she leave Jeb and her parents behind again, for the sake of a man she knows has manipulated her before? Will her mother and Jeb trust her to do what's right? Can she trust herself to make the smart decision?
