I must say I love Nancy Holder's Buffy the Vampire Slayer books, and next to Christopher Golden, I think . As always I am most appreciative of Holder's respect for the Buffy mythos and the idea that this is an ongoing war with the vampires.

I must say I love Nancy Holder's Buffy the Vampire Slayer books, and next to Christopher Golden, I think she writes some of the most believable, true to canon Buffy stories out there. This dark, gritty book will keep the reader on the edge of her seat. This book is scary in times, with real jeopardy for our heroes, and this book doesn't pull any punches. But she always tempers this with attempts to deepen the relationships between Buffy and the Scoobies. We are never just running in place with Holden.

Buffy and the Slayerettes take a bit of a backseat to the Big Bad couple Julian and Helen (vampires from the Roman times of Caligua). Julian is an older vampire; intelligent, manipulative and slightly swayed by beautiful women. Helen was quite normal and wasn't deserving of her fate, but madness, determination and Julian turned her into a Vampire that even Angel fears. Holder seems to understand man very well. Someone could live for hundreds of years and still make the same mistakes, because it's almost impossible to escape your true essence.
So many bad things happen to the Scooby Gang: shootings, beatings, mind control, uncontrollable rage, captivity, riots and near drownings. It's a bit much, but the current Sunnydale storyline intermingled with the Roman times were equally captivating. Great job, Holder. Five stars for your effort.

In The Evil That Men Do, the ashes of Caligula have come to surface in Sunnydale, followed closely by Helen and Julian, two vampires dating back to Caligula's rule. When all of Sunnydale becomes possessed of a madness, it's up to Buffy to make things right once again. But Buffy has been having horrible dreams and they feel prophetic. If her dreams come true, then Angel dies, and she's the one to kill him. What's a slayer to do?

I must say I love Nancy Holder's Buffy the Vampire Slayer books, and next to Christopher Golden, I think she writes some of the most believable, true to canon Buffy stories out there. This dark, gritty book will keep the reader on the edge of her seat. This book is scary in times, with real jeopardy for our heroes, and this book doesn't pull any punches.

From the school-yard violence that started everything to the demons and massacre that awaits, not even Giles and Joyce are immune to the troubles in Sunnydale. I loved this story for it's dark turns, the way it really makes the reader fear not only for Buffy, but for everyone she loves. The moments between Angel and Buffy were touching, yet humorous, and I loved the way that Cordelia became a strong heroine in her own right in this story.

The back cover reads "Evil Dwells Here" and it isn't kidding. A super read for fans of the series who would like to stay in Sunnydale a little while longer.

"The Evil That Men Do" is a line taken from Antony's funeral oration in Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar." In Nancy Holder's solo novel there has been a shooting spree on campus, after which the people of Sunnydale go off the deep end turning the town into a giant lynch mob out looking for victims. Meanwhile, a pair of two thousand year old vampires from the time of Imperial Rome have arrived in town, Helen and Julian. Helen is known as the Betrayer, having turn on her friend Diana the Slayer and having killed hundreds of Slayers since then, usually in horrible and prolonged fashions. Not only has Helen set her sights on Buffy, she has a history with Angelus.
There are two intriguing aspects to "The Evil That Men Do," one realized the other only hinted at. The first is that whether it is outright possession or a more subtle poison, Buffy's family and friends are throwing what are either their deepest or darkest thoughts at the Slayer. Her mother says Buffy has ruined her life, Giles calls her a thoughtless Bimbo, Willow attacks her for being with Angel while Oz is missing, and on and on. Underlying all this is the scope of Buffy's responsibilities and the conflict between her obligations to her friends and her duty in being the Slayer. There is a personal level to conflict here that you rarely get with a Buffy novel.
The second is a toss off line early in the book about how the first obligation of a new Slayer is to avenge her predecessor. Add to that the idea that Helen has been slaying hundreds of Slayers since she was first turned on the last day of the reign of the Emperor Caligula, which suggests Slayers are usually told what just happened to the previous Slayer. Certainly there is a story here to be told and you have to think that soon or later we will get around to hearing what happened to the Vampire Slayer before Buffy. It may well be that Joss Whedon is saving the story for some prime moment and with the introduction of the First Slayer in the Season Four finale I also have to think we are heading in that direction.
This is an above average Buffy the Vampire Slayer novel, even if it is not on the same level as Holder's work with Christopher Golden. As always I am most appreciative of Holder's respect for the Buffy mythos and the idea that this is an ongoing war with the vampires. But she always tempers this with attempts to deepen the relationships between Buffy and the Scoobies. We are never just running in place with Holden.

Nancy Holder and Christopher Golden are best when working together; I can only surmise that they complement each other's strengths and weaknesses well. Even as a team, they have a tendency to fall back on too many action sequences, and both together and separately they put more in a book than it really can comfortably handle.
I have to preface this review by stating that Evil is a good read - it is just an undisciplined and overbusy one. It has one of the best openings in any Buffy book, a virtual re-enactment of the Columbine slayings, and maintains strong depth of feeling for all the characters. The antagonists of the piece, more or less the Spike and Dru of ancient Rome, are fascinating and well-drawn, and the historical backstories on them are among the best written scenes in the book. The central plot is clever, and allows for strong interplay among all the series characters.
What's weak about it is the subplot, which becomes more distracting than enhancing. The Roman vampires, intent on recreating epic gladiatorial games, poison Sunnydale's water supply to create madness on the streets. Too much time is spent on Buffy and the Scoobies settling street fights that have nothing to do with the central plot, and the focus is badly diffused.
Fans will definitely enjoy it, but Evil is probably not the best book for newcomers to the series.
