The first in an all-new series by New York Times best-selling author Kendare Blake continues the world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer featuring the next generation of Scoobies and Slayers who must defeat a powerful new evil.
A new Slayer for a new generation...
Frankie Rosenberg is passionate about the environment, a sophomore at New Sunnydale High School, and the daughter of the most powerful witch in Sunnydale history. Her mom, Willow, is slowly teaching her magic on the condition that she use it to better the world. But Frankie’s happily quiet life is upended when new girl Hailey shows up with news that the annual Slayer convention has been the target of an attack, and all the Slayers—including Buffy, Faith, and Hailey’s older sister Vi—might be dead. That means it’s time for this generation’s Slayer to be born.
But being the first ever Slayer-Witch means learning how to wield a stake while trying to control her budding powers. With the help of Hailey, a werewolf named Jake, and a hot but nerdy sage demon, Frankie must become the Slayer, prevent the Hellmouth from opening again, and find out what happened to her Aunt Buffy, before she’s next.
Get ready for a whole new story within the world of Buffy!

YA Review My Thoughts

In Every Generation is the first in a new young adult paranormal series by Kendare Blake. I was so super excited for this book because I am a HUGE Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan, and In every Generation takes us back to that very beloved Buffy world. This young adult series focuses on a new generation of Slayers and their very own scooby gang. I really enjoyed this book! I thought that it was perfectly reminiscent for all fans of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer fandom, with plenty of nods and references to the show and town. We also get to see lots of familiar faces. If you are a a fan of Buffy, then I think you will really enjoy In Every Generation. I am already excited for the next book in the series!

In Every Generation, we meet Hailey and Frankie. Frankie is Willow’s daughter and is also destined to be the next slayer (for reasons that will be explained very early on in the book), and Hailey is the younger sister of another Slayer (Vi). Because Frankie is Willow’s daughter, she is not only a slayer but also a witch. I thought a Slayer/witch combo was super interesting and I can’t wait to see her powers develop in future books as she grows as a character. She felt pretty young in this first book, so I am looking forward to the next book to see her mature and grow a bit as the series goes on.

I think my favorite part of In Every Generation was traveling back to Sunnydale. It felt like being wrapped in my favorite warm and cozy blanket. I loved seeing all the familiar faces, and getting to know the new scooby gang. I think so far my favorites are Hailey, Jake (a warewolf) and Segmund (a sage demon). I loved seeing the new scoobies interact with the old scooby gang. It was a lot of fun. There are still many unanswered questions to be explored in the next couple of installments and I am super excited to dive into them. I need to know what happened at the slayer convention! I am hoping we get some of those answers in the next book, but I will tell you one thing- reading In Every Generation definitely made me want to go back and binge watch all of the seasons of Buffy! Bottom line: If you are a fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, this book was a lot of fun to read!

About Kendare Blake

Kendare Blake is the author of several novels and short stories, most of which you can find information about via the links above. Her work is sort of dark, always violent, and features passages describing food from when she writes while hungry. She was born in July (for those of you doing book reports) in Seoul, South Korea, but doesn’t speak a lick of Korean, as she was packed off at a very early age to her adoptive parents in the United States. That might be just an excuse, though, as she is pretty bad at learning foreign languages. She enjoys the work of Milan Kundera, Caitlin R Kiernan, Bret Easton Ellis, Richard Linklater, and the late, great Michael Jackson, I mean, come on, he gave us Thriller.

She lives and writes in Kent, Washington, with her husband, their cat son Tyrion Cattister, red Doberman dog son Obi-Dog Kenobi, rottie mix dog daughter Agent Scully, and naked sphynx cat son Armpit McGee.
