Synopsis

Buffy Summers, the Chosen One, the Slayer, is dealing with a horror she is powerless to stop – the divorce of her parents. Adolescence is tough enough without the added distress of parental separation, not to mention the responsibilities of the one who stands alone against the powers of darkness. Now, in a failed attempt to alleviate Buffy's anxiety, the vampire with a soul, known as Angel, has unwittingly unleashed the Malignancy Demons upon her and her family. They feed on the pain of the Summers' family and bring to life the negative emotions which grip them. Buffy has faced Deceit and Guilt she must now face Abandonment.[1]

Trivia

  • The photo cover has two promotional photo shoots for Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 2.[2]
  • This story is part of the third book of the Buffy: Year One trilogy, the last stories of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Classic, about Buffy Summers as a Slayer before her arrival in Sunnydale.
  • Editor Scott Allie declared about this title: "we entered into [the final part of the Year One storyline] knowing it was going to be the end of the monthly series. The TV show was ending, we'd just done a series in a mental institution ["Slayer, Interrupted"], and we all felt we were doing the best work the monthly had seen. Our disappointment with having the book end was reflected in the extremely dark storyline."[3]
