Unnatural Selection was a novel written by Mel Odom based on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.


Willow is baby-sitting one night when suddenly the baby she's taking care of changes into an evil faerie and talks to her. He tells her that she needs to work harder to save Weatherly Park. See, Willow is trying to keep Gallivan Industries from destroying Weatherly Park to create an amusement park. The faerie wants Willow to work harder at saving it. She's scared by it when it tries to attack her. After some research, Giles discovers that the fairy is of Russian brand called the domovoi. They're nasty faeries and they're hiding out beneath Weatherly Park. The faeries also have plans for Willow; they need the blood of a witch in order to resurrect the Homestone which will renew the faeries' strength.
