Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Official Grimoire: A Magickal History of Sunnydale
By A.M. Robinson, Willow Rosenberg
Publisher: Insight Editions
Release Date: October 24, 2017
It’s been only five months since Buffy sacrificed herself to save the world. For five months we’ve wondered if the person who should be here, smiling and laughing and punning in a non-Buffybot way that actually makes sense, is instead suffering in an unimaginable hell dimension. Willow Rosenberg… October 2, 2001
Willow Rosenberg, the witchy brain of the Scooby gang, started chronicling her adventures from around the time Buffy went away, distraught over killing Angel (so beginning of season 3), to her last entry about the “spell to share the power of the chosen one” in season 7. Willow weaves her humor and language (I dub Buffy-speak) to give us her point of view of Oz, meeting Tara, The Gentlemen, Adam, and Tabula Rasa.
More below on Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Official Grimoire: A Magickal History of Sunnydale by Willow Rosenberg aka A.M. Robinson.
This book is a dream…I’m so incredibly wowed by it. I often watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer episodes, especially if I am feeling sad. And when I find someone who hasn’t watched them before, getting to watch it with someone who is watching for the first time is almost (not quite) like watching it for the first time, too.
Sprinkled with photographs, spells, and comment notes from Buffy, Giles, Xander, and more, this hardcover book will keep you coming back to look through it again and again, long after you read it the first time. Be sure to check out the bonus letter from Tara on the inside back cover. It is 161 pages of authentic Buffy (rather…Willow), a truly unique addition to your book collection.
There just has to be a girl. One girl in all the world, who wants to change it so that her friend doesn’t have to fight alone anymore.
I know you will enjoy this grimoire as much as I did.
This grimoire from the baddest witch around will teach potential slayers and aspiring wiccans everything they’ll ever need to know about magic in Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Every good witch has a grimoire, and Willow Rosenberg is no exception. The Official Grimoire is the first and only truly comprehensive collection of every magical moment from all seven seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, humorously narrated by beloved resident witch Willow Rosenberg. Completely illustrated and annotated by the rest of the gang, this book of spells is a unique keepsake for fans of the Buffy-verse and an incredible celebration of the show’s twenty-year legacy.
