I wasn't very impressed by this, in the throes of a Buffy obsession as I am.
The main plot, revolving around a vampire that is reborn into a new body each time she is killed,was good and menacing, and had some interesting flashbacks. There was a secondary plot about ghosts that wasn't fully resolved, but maybe it is in another book.
The narrative jumped around enough to confuse me, especially as the point of view also shifted often, on occasion in the middle of a paragraph. The use of slayer slang to identify the characters seemed a little forced. ( )

Buffy's mother is sick, and Buffy also has to deal with an extra powerful female vampire, and her gang.
This bunch wants to summon something considerably worse than themselves.

Even if Buffy manages to kill the head woman, Veronique, she comes back again as another vampire. Pretty annoying situation to be in, all around.

"Instant Replay"

During a routine slaying, Buffy encounters a vampire named Veronique who knows the slayer's name and can anticipate her attack. One who doesn't have the proper respect for Mr. Pointy. One who cannot die. If slain, she will reincarnate in a new body.

An invincible demon is the last thing Buffy needs right now. Joyce Summers is about to undergo a serious operation, calling up all of her daughter's fears about her own mortality. Angel wants to comfort Buffy, but her mother's crisis underscores the differences between them: he will live forever, while she will grow old...or die young.

Torn between her duties as the Chosen One, Buffy needs the support of her friends to help her solve a rash of grave robberies, head off an influx of new vampires, and take Veronique down once and for all. For Veronique is on a mission -- to bring about the unification of her masters, the Triumvirate, into one all-powerful demon that will drink the blood of the last man on earth...
