Season 1 of Buffy is over but it is not yet time for season 2 of Buffy. In the meantime we have the events of Europe to deal with. In particular the reason that Spike and Drusilla show up in Sunnydale this season. Written by Drew Goddard himself. A great writer for such an important story.
This book tells the story of Prague and what happened to Drusilla that made the two of them flee to Sunnydale to try and help her. In this story she is captured and Spike is beaten and almost staked before being thrown off a bridge. He wakes up to find that Dru is gone.
She wakes up tied to a chair that slowly puts spikes into her arms and legs. It is a device that is made to cause pain for vampires that they won't forget or get past. It is made so that the pain will stick with them for all time. Meanwhile elsewhere Spike fights his way through the mad doctor's men. Trying to find out how much information as he can to lead him to Dru so he can save her.
The pain is driving her crazy, not hard since it is Dru and Angel made her crazy long ago. The mad doctor thinks that he may have pushed Dru too far so he gets ready to stake her but this is when Spike crashes in and saves her while killing the doctor.
Dru is badly hurt and their only hope is in Sunnydale. Spike looks forward to killing his third slayer. This is a great story that sets up all of season 2. On top of that it is written by Drew Goddard, what could be better? Read it now!
