I've been a fan of Mel Odom's since I read a title he wrote for the Executioner series, called "Crimson Tide." (No relation to the movie.) Then, I read his novelization of "Blade" which was wonderful; the dedication page alone is worth the price of the book. So I was quite excited when I found e had written a Buffy book. The book at first seemed ho-hum to me, although I have to hand it to him, he's got the characterization down pat...even Willow, which for my money seems to be the trickiest for novel-writers to get right. But then the faeries were introduced, and I'm a sucker for faeries. I will read anything I can get my paws on if it has to do with fairies (Faeries, Fairies...). That said, I'm looking forward to reading "Child of the Hunt." But I digress... Once things really got rolling, the book was great. I really hope Mr. Odom will eventually write an "adult" Buffy novel. That said, I'll read with pleasure anything else he writes in the Buffyverse. Good work, Mel!

This has been one of the best young adult Buffy books ever. I think the author really captures the overall theme of the show. All of the characters sounded so much like as if it were a new episode on tv. And the plot was really creative. Very different. Although where the kidnapped babies were concerned, it did remind me a little of the episode "Band Candy". Only this book took a new turn and put faeries as the culprits and also took the time to explain the different kinds of faeries. Child of the Hunt also had faeries in it, but I felt through this book (Unnatural Selection),I had a much better understanding. I just didn't get the fact that Xander and Cordy were still together and Buffy and Angel weren't. It's like the events in "Lovers Walk" never happened with Xander and Cordy. But I totally recommend this book to anyone who's a really huge fan of the show. :)It really shines compared to the rest of the YA's in the series.

I really liked this book, which says a lot because I have been pretty critical of some of the other "Buffy" books. Some of the other books tend to seem like they are trying harder to be a tie in to the show rather than telling a good story. This book definitely stood on its own. The author throws you right into the story right off the bat, and it has a good mix of folklore and mystery. Some of the other "Buffy" books are just one big gratuitous "monster fest." If you stay away from "Buffy" Young Adult books because they are not "Adult" enough, then you might want to try this book before being too hasty.

This has to be one of the best Buffy original novels yet! I loved everything about it - the plot was interesting and unpredictable, moved at the perfect pace, and, best of all, focused on my favorite character, Willow. I liked the author's style, how he planted little seeds, then harvested them all in a satisfying way. Unlike the last book, Visitors, I didn't get the sense of unfinished business - he did a good job of tying up all the loose ends. So if you want a great read that'll suck you in and leave you wanting more, pick up Unnatural Selection. You won't regret it!

It was awesome! And not only because the main focus was on my favorite character, Willow. I liked the stuff having to do with faeries and the plot. I though it was kind of similar to the episodes of Buffy on TV "Becoming part 1" and "Becoming part 2" Because of the construction sites that unearthed the evil. But it was definitely the BEST! I started reading it, and by the 4th chapter I was hooked! I couldn't stop! I finished this book in a few hours, Definitely the best! I hope Mel Oden Will write more Buffy books!

As a fan who reads every Buffy book published as soon as I can get my hands on it, I was a little dissapointed. The plot was ok I guess but the authors style of writing was nothing special. Throughtout the whole book I felt that something was missing, something that draws you into the book & makes you read it dozens of times. Idea: take it out of the library, don't waste money on a book thats not really worth it.

The storyline was a good premise but it never lived up to its potential. The author did ok with portraying the characters but they didn't seem to come alive as they do in the other novels I've read. It became a chore to finish reading it.

This was the first Buffy book that I read and that book kept me read more. It was like it was responsible for getting me addicted to these books! So if you've never read a Buffy book before, then this is a good book to start with! :)
