The Slayer is dead.
She leaves behind her friends, her sister, and her Watcher.
He should not be so surprised. He has read the Watchers’ Diaries, whose pages all end so abruptly. He has been raised and guided towards this destiny since the age of ten. And so he should have known that this moment was inevitable.
But she was not like the others. And in the end, she did not die like the others. Not cut down by her foe in battle, his Slayer sacrificed herself to save her sister and the world. And he is left alone, empty, a lifetime’s purpose lying dead atop the rubble before him.
But there is another who can understand his pain, a dark power who will not let this Slayer rest in her grave. And though he believes he has already lost everything with her death, he will learn that he still has more to lose…
Buffy Backstory: Most people who have read my fiction are Buffy fans who know canon better than I do, usually. But some of my friends haven’t seen Buffy before (those heathens!) or are less familiar with the history. So I wrote this little background for them to brief them on what they should know to follow my story. If you fall into this category then by all means click here and educate yourself on all things Buffy.

Judge's REVIEW of Death Brings Clarity by Fiction Queen.
First, thanks to everyone who has been reading and giving feedback. I'm very pleased with how the whole thing turned out, and were it not for everyone's kind encouragement, I would have stopped at the first book. So you can all take credit for the rest.
Also, I'd like to thank Gail for beta reading the third book & epilogue. I'm sure it ended up being a much larger project than she had probably expected, but she was always very thorough and helpful, and I think it's better for it. My friend Phil also did more than his share in editing and keeping all the medical/British stuff correct.
Of course, both the compelling writing of Joss Whedon and ASH's stellar performance as Giles combine to inspire fanfic writers everywhere. Even long after the show has left the air, we still want more! And that is thanks to the writers and cast.
Last, I printed up copies of all three books of Death Brings Clarity plus epilogue, bound as one volume with Dusty's beautifully designed cover. I have no copies left, so for those of you who managed to get your hands on a copy before I ran out, make sure you don't lose it. Who knows, might be a collector's item someday. Since I had them done at a print on demand publisher, it's possible that if there were enough interest, I could have a second print run. So if you really want a copy,
me and I'll start a waiting list.
