A new series of YA books about a newly called Vampire Slayer post-Chosen, by Kiersten White, who I have never previously heard of but she wrote a trilogy called Paranormalcy so I’m prepared to give her the benefit of the doubt just for that.

A new slayer is a solid call for a first spinoff series - I’ve certainly run enough games about them.

Will it be set immediately post-Chosen or nowish? Will it reference the comic seasons, break from their setup or studiously avoid the subject?

(I would guess that it it’ll go for the classic “pulled out of a normal life so the audience can relate” style of the early TV series, and won’t make the new slayer part of the army from Season Eight which also avoids retelling an existing story. Paranormalcy features a teenage girl in a monster-hunting agency and wishing she could be normal, so I would expect her to avoid sticking the new slayer in a big organisation as a result.)

Will it be funny? Signs are good, based on Ms. White’s blog subtitle and the reveal on her Twitter.

We’ll see in a few months.
