A Buffy the Vampire Slayer novel: A Renaissance faire comes to Sunnydale along with the dark faerie, minions of the Wild Hunt, servants of the evil Erl King. Good condition, oeverall minor shelfwear, scuff to a few outer page ends. 324 pages.
An exciting and well characterized entry in the Buffy universe--Buffy must destroy the Erl king and his dark faerie hordes before ultimately facing down yet another mortal adversary... More thrills!
Jousting contests, human chess matches, lords and ladies and beggars...a traveling Renaissance fair has come to Sunnydale. The fair may seem terminally uncool, but Buffy and her friends are charmed anyway. Especially by a sad-eyed boy named Roland, who serves as the court jester.
Unfortunately, the people from the fair are not the only visitors in Sunnydale. Roaming the countryside are nasty little creatures with a taste for flesh: the dark faerie. They are minions of the Wild Hunt, servants of the evil Erl King.
Buffy's challenge is to annihilate the king and his murderous horde. But the path to his destruction leads straight to Roland, who is not quite human...and destined to become the Slayer's mortal adversary.
Good book to read if you're missing the show. It is light reading, but definitely fun.
This story occurs after Angel returns from the Hell dimension. Oz is also present so the timing is interesting. Set around the arrival of the Ren. Faire to Sunnydale, it gives an interesting interpretation of who the actors and participants really are but overall, not one of the better Buffy books.
