Review: The whole concept of this novel was a tad odd, as well as easily laughable. I mean, the idea of VAMPIRE FAIRIES is enough to get me laughing for quite some time, but, for some strange reason, once I got used to the idea of microvamps, I actually found that the story moved along quite well. It's one of those cute filler episodes in the series and though a tad strange, nevertheless interesting. One thing that's easily notable is that the characters are written extremely well, and this has to be pointed out because there are a great many authors out there that cannot successful write for every character. This isn't the case in this novel and the dialogue for every characters was almost BEYOND perfect. Anya's lines were watched exactly, as were Willow's. And it wasn't one of those novels were they reuse old lines from episodes in order to make you feel comfortable with the characters (which never actually works, because all you do is roll your eyes and figure that the author can't think of anything better), the author actually came with her own stuff for the characters. Very impressive and it made for a good read. So despite the fact that the storyline is a tad on the preposterous side, it's still worthy of a read.
