[image=http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/images/n2/n12365.jpg] "Visitors" by Laura Gilman and Josepha Sherman. The story takes place during season three and finds many things happening at once. Angel warns Buffy of a new threat in Sunnydale, before retreating into the shadows. She and the Scooby Gang discover that the threat is a korred, a demon that plays its song and gets people to dance to their deaths. Kinda like Sweet in "Once More With Feeling", minus the fire. However, other problems crop up. A Watcher named Gerald Panner is keeping tabs on Giles, trying to determine if he is doing a good job as Buffy's Watcher. Ethan Rayne is back in town causing mischeif. And several student teachers are occupying the library, which makes it difficult to hold meetings in there. Not to mention that each student teacher is giving Buffy a major wiggins, especially when one seems to know more than she should about the supernatural. I have to say I'm a bit disappointed in this one. While the setting moves closer to how season three actually went, it's not enough to make this an enjoyable read. Namely the plot involving the student teachers which was resolved in an anti-climatic way for me. The korred is fine, but not a true big bad. Especially coming off the Gatekeeper story arc. I think you can skip this one. Next review is "Immortal".
