  Summary: 8 different tales of past Slayers who have gone through their ritual 18th birthday Cruciamentum, some have survived, whereas others haven't.
   
  Rating: 3/5
   
  Review: Definitely a very neat idea to have an entire novel based on the Cruciamentum. For the most part, the shorts stories are amazing, but there are a few duds. One of those duds being Jane Espenson's story at the very end of the book. It was disappointing because she's actually a writer for the show and she had by far the worst story in this book. Anyway, my favourite tale was written by Kristine Kathryn Rusch, about a Slayer whose pride is so strong, it just gives a whole new life to the story of Slayers. And an honourable mention goes to Nancy Holder who wrote about Nikki and gave us a lot of detail about how Robin Wood came about. Great tale.
