Review: Slayer (Slayer #1) by Kiersten White
Slayer - Kiersten White

 

 

Into every generation a Slayer is born…

Nina and her twin sister, Artemis, are far from normal. It’s hard to be when you grow up at the Watcher’s Academy, which is a bit different from your average boarding school. Here teens are trained as guides for Slayers—girls gifted with supernatural strength to fight the forces of darkness. But while Nina’s mother is a prominent member of the Watcher’s Council, Nina has never embraced the violent Watcher lifestyle. Instead she follows her instincts to heal, carving out a place for herself as the school medic.

Until the day Nina’s life changes forever.

Thanks to Buffy, the famous (and infamous) Slayer that Nina’s father died protecting, Nina is not only the newest Chosen One—she’s the last Slayer, ever. Period.

As Nina hones her skills with her Watcher-in-training, Leo, there’s plenty to keep her occupied: a monster fighting ring, a demon who eats happiness, a shadowy figure that keeps popping up in Nina’s dreams…

But it’s not until bodies start turning up that Nina’s new powers will truly be tested—because someone she loves might be next.

One thing is clear: Being Chosen is easy. Making choices is hard.

 

 

 

 

*I received a free copy from the publisher and chose to leave a voluntary review. Thank you!*

 

 

As a big Buffy fan I was super excited to be able to read this ARC. And having it finished, I must say that it is a must read for any Buffy fan out there.

Even people not knowing about Buffy will enjoy this book, it gives you enough background to know what is going on.

This book throws you right back into the Buffy Universe and starts off a few months where Buffy ended.

We meet Nina, who is a future watcher or should be, but after the events in Buffy those are slim and everything changed.

It is clear early on that Nina is a not a fan of Buffy and dislikes anything and everything about her. While we never really “meet” Buffy in person we hear plenty of her from Nina.

Nina is a super complex who has too many things against her without being the choses one, But once it is clear that she also is a Slayer, and not just any Slayer but the last Slayer. things get even harder for her.

After her father’s death things are complicated between her and her mom and its only getting worse.  The only one she can rely on is her twin sister…… but nothing is ever so easy.

It is clear, early on that everyone is keeping secrets from each other but soon things starting to unravel and it is only a matter of time before everything and everyone will be exposed.

 Of course Nina is right in the middle of everything and must deal with it. But she soon doesn’t know who to trust. To make matters worse she must accept that she might be becoming the very thing she hates… a Slayer .

I really enjoyed this book. The book started out at a slower pace and is a bit of a slow burn but well worth it. The last 25% are just jam-packed with action and plot twists you didn’t see coming. The whole book is fun and has some pretty funny moments, it had a bit of a Vampire Academy feeling to it as well. 

The end had me super excited for the next book. I can’t wait to see what is in store and how it all will work out.

I rate it 4 ★ but just because it was a bit on the slower side in the beginning.

Gothic all the way to my New Year 2019!
The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein - Kiersten White

 

     “I, however, was perfectly aware of my beauty. I considered it a skill, alongside speaking French, English, Italian and German. It was a language of its own, in a way. One that translated well in different circumstances.”

 

     This day is a totally freaking Sunday (but I want also to mention, that I am so blessed) because I am so excited to read a new book, though I can't wait for the new year bell rings and explosion of firecrackers but basically to start a new and fresh ideas, adventures, and story yet to be unfolded. 

 

     The book that you can see floating before your screen is my first TBR book this 2019. I don't really know why I got so flaunted and fond in the odds and beauty of a gothic novel. Yeah, given that I really can create mental pictures and images vividly on my mind, but the structure of story telling of one's persona in a dark setting gives me a complete sense of peace and relaxation. It sounds ironic, but dark images can also wrap me into his mantle of care.

 

     This book also MUST provide me a complete sensation of well-being. 

 

     One of the books that I bought during Christmas holidays, as a matter of factly, is this as my present to my self. So it's 8:09 AM now, December 30, 2019, the weather is perfect - Raining, the sky is dark, cold like a dew brewing itself in the grass, and a cup of tea! 

 

     So give me 3 days to finish this book, and I'll give you my clap and review! See yah!
