In a sleepy little town on the border between Arizona and Mexico, Agent Riley Finn and his operative wife Sam, have tracked down an international smuggling ring involving vampires. Surprisingly the call for reinforcements is answered by Buffy Summers and Angel. Now tempers are flaring in the heat of the day - and night - as people are dying and locals are turning a blind eye to the deadly events. Bodies are turning up in the surrounding desert, some drained of blood, some having succumbed to another fast-moving death. Riley is noticing the arrival of more and more crows to this area, ominous portents of the events ahead. But even Mr Secret Agent Man is distracted from his job when his wife goes undercover with Angel...

Ok, straight up I'll admit I was one of the many thousands of people who hated Riley when he joined the show, and I cheered when he left. Even still, this book is an enjoyable read. It brings together a very different group of people all with a history. And this, plus the totally different setting, adds something new to the Buffy novel selection.

Arizona, Mexico, vampires, giant wolves, bent cops and creepy landowners; author John Vornholt has come to mix-up the story pot of the Buffster. Add to that some jealously at the closeness of Sam and Angel's undercover work, some funny moments such as Buffy dressed up in combat gear and getting into role, and you get a definite worthwhile read.

Breathing some fresh air into the Buffy novels - which is now needed as we have no more beloved show to watch on our TVs, Seven Crows gives you the feeling that the Buffy-verse will continue to keep our interest a lot longer, just through a different medium.
