    One thought on “Monster Island”

    1. Monster Island is by far my favourite piece of Buffy/Angel related fiction and I could read it over and over again, no problem. My main reason for enjoying it is that I love the Angel tv series (possibly more than I love Buffy!) and, even though this is a cross-over involving both parties, I've always found it much more rooted in Angel itself.I love the way the book is written- the characters, the scenery, the battle sequences and just the story itself -and cannot fail to be sucked in every time [...]

    2. To be honest, this is a book I had started over 5 years ago. Was more than halfway through but for some reason I put it down and never picked it back up again but I picked it up to finally finish it and it was pretty easy to get back into the story. Kinda.I am a huge, huge Buffy fan and I need all the books. I had a more than half of them until mom made me choose and get rid of them *sobs*Anyway, I am usually not one to like the mixed Buffy and Angel into one book but for this one, it worked rea [...]

    3. Well, it's a nice enough Buffy/Angel crossover, but somehow doesn't capture the "voice" of the series and characters as well as many of the other books; there's too much of a rushed feel, and we're told too often that the events are important and world-changing rather than letting the readers see or feel it for themselves. The Willow/Tara relationship is well written, but some awkwardness in the bid triangle. Not bad, but not among the best.

    4. whoa season six whoa well surprised again but was i really? Probably the only reason I read Buffy season 6 book was because Christopher Golden wrote this book.

    5. One of the few BtVS novels to truly capture the soul of the show. Even though it is not true canon, it postulates events that could have easily been part of the show (crossover movie anyone?). And, as always, Christopher Golden does a phenomenal job of writing the relationship between Willow and Tara, which is arguably the hardest to capture (given the traumatic way in which it ended for fans). One wonders if the writing partnerships between Golden and Amber Benson (co-creators of "Ghosts of Alb [...]

    6. If you miss the Angel and Buffy TV series,then you'll probably enjoy reading the books about the title characters. This particular novel is well written, and has an interesting plot. The gang from Sunnydale and the Angel crew from Los Angeles join forces to save half-breed demons! I do have a problem with this book. I learned a long time ago that just because a novel is lengthy and hardbound doesn't make it better then a paperback story of average length. This 400+ page story could have shed abo [...]

    7. This is a good book for Buffy/Angle fans. I always enjoy when I get to see the cast of both shows mixed together and share an adventure. The story line is also good, and the book is much longer/detailed than some of the shorter Buffy and Angel books that are made for younger readers. But like most cross overs between them, you end up feeling annoyed/sad when it ends because then Buffy goes back to her world and Angel goes back to his. We know from the start that its going to happen since the boo [...]

    8. Now that's what I call a Buffy/Angel tie-in novel! That was brilliant! I really enjoyed that! It was loads of fun, the storyline was great, the characters were done perfectly and the combining of the Buffy and Angel characters working together was really well done! Top draw!

    9. Monster Island is a Buffy/Angel novel by Christopher Golden and Thomas E. Sniegoski. It is set in the timeline of Buffy season 6 and Angel season 3.

    10. One of the better Buffy fiction books. Agree with the comments that it captures the essence of the show, but is not a masterpiece of American literature.

    11. Now I understand fan-fic! Man, so enjoyable to revisit these characters (and have the two groups interact!), especially since their characters were so spot-on.

    12. Good story but they kept rehashing the main themes. It's definitely made me want to go back and rewatch Angel.
