Publisher's summary

Original cast members from the beloved TV series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, reunite for an all-new adventure about connections that never die—even if you bury them.

A decade has passed since the epic final battle that concluded Buffy the Vampire Slayer (TV). The game-changing spell that gave power to all potential Slayers persists. With new Slayers constantly emerging, things are looking grim for the bad guys. Rebellious vampire Spike (James Marsters) is working undercover in Los Angeles with his old pal Clem (James Charles Leary) when he meets feisty, rookie Slayer, Indira (Laya DeLeon Hayes), who wants Spike to be her mentor. Stakes intensify as Cordelia Chase (Charisma Carpenter) emerges from an alternate reality where she alone is the Slayer, and Buffy Summers doesn’t exist. Cordelia enlists Spike’s help with a classic big bad terrorizing her world…his ex, Drusilla (Juliet Landau). Giles (Anthony Head), Anya (Emma Caulfield Ford), Jonathan (Danny Strong), and Tara (Amber Benson) also return, but through the years and the vastness of the multiverse, not everyone is who they used to be…

Slayers: A Buffyverse Story is written and directed by Amber Benson and Chris Golden, and co-directed by Kc Wayland.

Now available in Dolby Atmos on Audible.

A dream come true

having loved all things Buffyverse since the show started airing when I was in high school, I long since gave up on any kind of revival or new series and seeing these characters again. so here we instead have hearing them, and that's good enough, even if it's not all the same versions of the ones we know. James and all the others jump back into their roles perfectly. I'm well into it and I really like the story. Thank you to Audible for producing this, and to Amber and Chris for writing this, and if you make more seasons in the Buffyverse I will gladly listen. I really loved the scene where Giles and Cordelia meet, and the way Giles talks about og Cordy being someone who was brave and became a better person. plus the scene where new Cordy finally talked about her sister, Charisma knocked it for sure.

Like watching TV episode with your eyes closed

I loved Buffy and Angel so I pre-ordered this without realizing what it actually was to my regret. This is basically as my title suggests like watching a TV episode with eyes closed rather than a book in audio form. As such it's full of sound effects and music which to me were highly distracting. It was also hard to follow at times as it requires you to recognize voices which wasn't always easy as even by book end I was struggling to tell Cordelia and Anya apart.

Hearing some of the actors reprise their voices was cool but the story didn't do them justice. It wasn't very good and the new slayer, Indira, was basically a fan service character that was far more annoying than endearing.

It was also kind of annoying that it ignores the ending of Angel and Spike makes no mention of how he survived. I know that technically this was answered in comic book form but I'm not sure that they and this book are set in the same continuity, it didn't feel like it.

If your a superfan of Buffy then you might enjoy this. otherwise not recommended.

Great romp!

This was such fun. I loved what they did with the story. Just the right amount of camp. I really hope there’s another one in the works!

Brought me right back to Sunnydale!

I love this so far! Such a perfect way to revisit some favorite characters and to hear the original actors voice them again is surreal. A real gift to Scoobies everywhere!

Welcome back to beloved friends

I've been waiting 20 years for this. Cordelia is the badass she was always supposed to be. A fun story that is so well done.
