  Review: Actually, this novel was really enjoyable to read and it was just the right length. Had it been any longer I don't think I'd've liked it as much. I especially liked the ending because it was one of those clever and inventful ideas that we don't see too often. I liked trying to figure out what Buffy was going to do to kill the Moons. The one thing I didn't really like was Oz's characterization. He really stuck out and a lot of the things he said were out character. This only started to happen more towards the end of the book. Still, a good book with a great ending
