January 22 Had the dream again last night. Only, this time it was different. . . . Faith has always been a loner. Growing up in a broken home in South Boston, shuffled from relative to relative, her only companion was an imaginary friend named Alex, who helped her escape into a fantasy world of monsters and the supernatural, far from the real-life horrors of the waking world. Now, taken away from her mother by social services and shipped off to a foster home, Faith learns that some nightmares are all too real, that the inventions of her childhood really do haunt the night, hungry for blood. Enter Diana Dormer, a Harvard professor and representative of the Watchers Council who has come to tell Faith of her destiny, to train her, to prepare her for what is to come: Faith is the Chosen One. She alone will stand against the vampires, the demons, and the forces of darkness. But she's not alone. When Alex, her childhood companion, returns in her dreams, she warns Faith that someone else is coming for her, a force so deadly and unforgiving that it has inspired fear in the underworld for a thousand generations. Its name is Malice. As memory and fantasy begin to merge, Faith's two worlds collide, with cataclysmic results. A violent battle for the Slayer's soul is staged, winner take all. This is her story. . . .

Robert Joseph Levy said that in this book, he hoped "to explore the choices made and the choices that were taken away from her, and to explore what it is to be the Chosen One without a support system of friends or family. He hoped to provide a context for the character's behavior and the way it developed during the third season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and beyond. A lot of things about Faith's character are supposed to be assumed by the viewers - a troubled childhood, delinquency and she's a loose girl.

Faith is a Slayer: a girl endowed with supernatural abilities and destined to battle evil creatures such as vampires and demons. Created as a foil to the protagonist, Buffy Summers, she is a Slayer who comes from a damaged background and often makes the wrong decision. Initially an ally to the main characters, events take a toll on Faith's sanity and she slips into a villainous role. Faith is featured in the ongoing comic book, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight (2007–11), which serves as a canonical continuation of the television series.

Talk about Go Ask Malice: A Slayer's Diary (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

"HISTORIAN'S NOTE: The following diary was found on April 13, 2006, beneath the ruins of the Sunnydale, California, bus station during an archeological excavation at that site. It was discovered inside a locker alongside a woman's bloodstained tank top, a handheld videogame device, and three sharp wooden objects resembling tent stakes. The present location of its author is unknown."

"Go Ask Malice: A Slayer's Diary" is certainly an attempt by Robert Joseph Levy to create a canonical story regarding Faith before she showed up in the third season "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" episode "Faith, Hope & Trick." It ends in June of 1998 with Faith on a bus on the first leg of a trip that will have her ending up in Sunnydale, and begins on December 14, 1997, on what must be Faith's 17th birthday, when she is given a diary by her counselor at school. Living somewhere in the Boston area, Faith hates her mother, gets into fights at school, and has started having dreams that smack of Greek mythology and the bloody story of the Bacchai. Abandoned by her mother and finally incarcerated for her acts of violence, Faith is rescued by Professor Diana Dormer, a professor in the department of Folklore and Mythology at Harvard University, and a representative of the Watchers Council.

Dormer explains to Faith that she is a Potential, and with great potential power comes great responsibility. Having already encountered her first vampire, Faith is willing to believe and so she starts training to be a Slayer. Faith is not exactly into studying, but she is even less used to having anybody treat her like she is worth anything as a human being, so she buys into the program. Meanwhile, she continues to have dreams in which her imaginary friend Alex turns out to be something different and quite older. Alex warns Faith that an ancient force is coming for her, something whose name is Malice, and as the memories and fantasies begin to merge, Faith comes closer to her first battle with a Big Bad. The other key character in the book turns out to be Killian, the drummer for her favorite band, Freak Wharf, who tends to drink a lot because when he does not he tends to make people he thinks about materialize.

How well does Levy work his novel into the "BtVS" continuity? Well, Faith becomes a Slayer on May 12, which is the same day that "Becoming, Part 1" aired and Drusilla killed Kendra, but what happened after the sun had set in Sunnydale on the left coast should not translate into dinner time for Faith back in Boston (a minor point). Most readers should catch out that it is going to be Kakistos that is waiting for Faith at the end of this one, and that proposes a major problem for Levy, because on the one hand when Faith shows up in Sunnydale with Kakistos on her heels she is seriously freaked out by the vamp that killed her Watcher, but on the other hand you do not especially want to end your novel with your heroine having been defeated and fleeing town. Actually, I do not think there is anything wrong with that given Faith's divided sense of self, which was explored to great effect on both "BtVS" and "Angel," but Levy decides not to play it that way.

The diary device works for the most part (if you get a phone call from an ancient vampire telling you he has your Watcher, would you really stop to write down what happened in your diary?), and it is really just a way of allowing Faith to tell the story in the first person. As Faith says when her teacher asks why it is significant that "Dracula" is an epistolary novel, "I guess it makes it more personal or whatever." You just have to go along with the idea that Faith would be such a diligent diary writer, because multiple page entries would certainly seem to tax her interest, not to mention her attention span. On balance, "Go Ask Malice" ends up slightly ahead on points. We do find out the origin of her signature "five by five" phrase and how she became a Slayer, but the ending does not fit completely with her advent in the television series. Still, for those of you who were wondering about the complete back story on Faith the Vampire Slayer, this is going to be as good as it gets.
Contancia
For years I scoffed at the existence of Buffy tie-in novels (how good could they really be?), and I was only reluctantly able to appreciate the character of Faith on the show. So it's kind of a shock to me that this first tie-in novel I've read, detailing Faith's back story before she came to Sunnydale, was so incredibly ejoyable! The author has a light and breezy writing style that makes the pages just fly by; not coincidentally, this laidback style also fits the voice of Faith perfectly. The convention used of the novel being Faith's actual diary requires only a slight leap (as does any epistolary, I suppose), and is surprisingly effective at conveying the plot. The lightness of the writing style, coupled with a larger-than-normal typeface, means that you'll be able to tear through the story in just a couple of days (or, if determined, a few hours at once). Not a perfect book - the recurring dream-story gets a bit old, pretty fast - but a thoroughly entertaining quick read.

This is an incredible book. Not so much revisionist, as serving the purpose of filling in the specifics of Faith's past, before we first meet her in "Faith, Hope, and Trick". We see the journey that she takes and why she became the person she became; the reason for her distrust, cynicism, and detachment. Her backstory is heartbreaking and we see the experiences that led to the self destructive path she ultimately ended up on. It very much leads to understanding her a great deal more; it clears up some of her mysteries. The added element of her "imaginary" friend, and who that "friend" ultimately turns out to be is gripping, and we see how the Slayer collective connection (past Slayers lives, experiences, and deaths) molded and effected and shaped Faith. Robert Joseph Levy deftly captures Eliza Dushku's voice and mannerisms, and the reader can really see her portrayal of Faith all through in one's imagination. This book is simply A MUST HAVE for all Faith and Eliza fans.

I was a little skeptical about how well this book would be written, I mean the whole Anne Frank thing has been done a million times. I was pleasantly surprised. With the exception of the first entry in the diary of Faith, the rest of the story moves at a nice clip, making me want to figure out what is going on with Faith! I mean we all know her life was pretty messed up until she met her watcher, but why is it so messed up, where are her parents, what does that cool tat on her arm mean , what did Kakistos do to her watcher that made her run to Sunnydale. All these questions and more are answered. Granted since this is the author's second attempt to reinvent the world that Joss Whedon created, it's really not half bad. He took a character that few had a chance to really know and give her family and friends, which who knows, maybe she would have been better without, and give her a background, a who, a why and a how she became the crazy, slightly psychotic Slayer that we have all grown to love because she is so complex.

Curious about the last name of our evil slayer? Then you should definitely read this book. The whole book is all about Faith before she came to Sunnydale. It starts out with learning about her drunk mother, the horrible guys she dated, and how she discovers she is a potential slayer.

I just really enjoyed this book because it gives a lot of insight about Faith. You kind of feel and see why she is the way she is. It's written in her point of view and it actually looks like a journal so you kind of feel what she feels.

In the end, if you want to read about Faith and discover things which were left out on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, then you should read this book. I really enjoyed it and couldn't put it down until I finished it.
