Read an excerpt from ‘Slayer’ by Kiersten White, set in the ‘Buffy’ universe

Slayer by Kiersten White follows the tale of a brand new Slayer — the last Slayer — as she battles the forces of darkness. Read chapter 3 right now!

If you want more Buffy the Vampire Slayer, you’re in luck! Kiersten White is the author of Slayer, a book set in the Buffy universe that follows the lives of Nina and her twin sister Artemis as their world is about to change forever.

And, even better, you can read chapter 3 of Slayer right now!

The official synopsis for Slayer reads:

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.

Slayer by Kiersten White will hit store shelves on January 8, 2019. You can pre-order it from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and IndieBound, or you can add it to your Goodreads list.
