“A worthy successor to the Slayer stories.” ―Booklist (starred review for In Every Generation)

Into every generation, a slayer is born. One girl in all the world . . . sort of.

Frankie Rosenberg is the world’s first slayer-witch, but she doesn’t have that slay-life balance figured out just yet. She’s still reeling from the deadly explosion at the anual slayer retreat―and new evidence that some slayers may have survived. And while she’s defeated her first Big Bad, Frankie soon realizes it was just a warm-up act. Bigger, badder forces of evil are just getting started.

The Hellmouth has been reawakened and its calling old friends home. Portals are opening between Sunnydale and other dimensions. And the Scooby Gang has too many demons to contend with―real, metaphorical, and sometimes absurdly hot.

Then an oracle warns of a new foe on its way: the Darkness. Could this be what attacked the slayers? And is it coming for Frankie?

New York Times best-selling author Kendare Blake takes readers back to the demon capital of the world in this sequel to In Every Generation.

One Girl in all the World was a good read, with some new characters and side plots.

 It picks up down the road from In Every Generation, but I felt it wasn’t up to the same standard. 

The action is there, but I felt it was down played, even though it’s supposed to be the main plot point. It was just too easy and not as detailed, in my opinion. I’d like longer, more detailed action scenes with Frankie and the gang battling the evil forces. 

I like the fact that Blake reiterate Willow’s sexual orientation, and kind of cleared the air with Oz. Even though I’m not sure why they felt it needed to be a conflict point to begin with. 

I also like that she [Blake] didn’t make her the sole LGBT representation. Jake’s questioning his sexuality in a healthy way with support from his best friend (super glad that didn’t turn out to be more than friendship between those two) as well as dealing with his werewolf-ness. He has a lot of conflict in his person; I’m rooting for him and am looking forward to more. 

I’m so conflicted with the relationship between Frankie and Grim… aside from the fact that he’s a two thousand year old Demon, he’s just there and just eh. I don’t see any actual chemistry between them and I just can’t accept an insta-love connection. Ugh, and a love triangle.

“Do not even think about kissing me when you still have rogue evil on your lips.”

I’m so over them reiterating, near constant, that Sunndale is “weird.” I completely understand that these books are to attract new generation of readers that don’t know who Buffy the Vampire Slayer is, but I feel it’s just over done. The references to the show/comics are still fun, and great for reminiscing. 

The drama with the Scoobies is prevalent in One Girl in all the World. It’s one of those “don’t date your co-workers” type deals, with a little bit of “Demon Life You Wouldn’t Understand.” I feel for Hailey. She’s just kind of thrown in with the gang, and rolls with it, not to mention all the stuff going on with Vi. She [Hailey] is one of the strongest characters and I’m looking forward to her growth. 

Also, the chapter titles are amazing. I miss books having chapter titles, so Blake having them in the series is great.

The humor is still there, just a different form than In Every Generation. The one-liners had me laughing out loud again.

“Only the urge to rip it out of my mom’s hands and run away with it into the mountains, where I would name it Scythey McScytheface and we would live together forever.” 

The Darkness was a nice villainous touch. I even respect the crazy dynamic with the leader. Buffy has always been a bit how power corrupts and I really like that this was added in here. Frankie has done well with her new found Slayer Powers, maybe because she’s had Witch power practically her whole life, will she inevitably have a similar struggle as Willow come book three? 

“When he was evil it was all biting and torture, and happy meals with legs.”

About Kendare Blake:

Kendare Blake is the New York Times bestselling author of several novels and short stories. Her work is sort of dark, always violent, and features passages describing food from when she writes while hungry. She was born in July in Seoul, South Korea, but doesn’t speak a lick of Korean, as she was packed off at a very early age to her adoptive parents in the United States. That might be just an excuse, though, as she is pretty bad at learning foreign languages. She lives and writes in Gig Harbor, Washington, with her husband, their cat son Tyrion Cattister, red Doberman dog son Obi-Dog Kenobi, rottie mix dog daughter Agent Scully, and naked Sphynx cat son Armpit McGee.
