I want to thank you for sharing that story with everyone it was well thought out and beautifully executed. Fait is also my favorite character and I think you captured her very well... I would LOVE to see her in the Angel-Verse as well maybe bring it all back together when she returns to help Buffy with the first... I'm sure you get a million suggestions so I'll leave it at that and thank you again for sharing such a wonderful story.

That was incredible. I should probably think of something to make this review longer considering how much work this novel took... but I really can't. But what an awesome story. Took several hours to read and loved every minute
Keep writing the awesome ;)

An epic story. Following on from Book 1 "Ashes to Ashes", Book 2 is a suitable conclusion for thenyxie's story. We watch Faith fall apart, put herself back together and the whole gang get together to save the day.
Characterisation is consistently great throughout: we don't have out of character moments, even for the sake of plot, and most of the Scoobies have real issues with Faith (that aren't magically resolved a few chapters in). Pacing is good, and the crescendo up to the grand finale is absolutely brilliant. A suitable conclusion for a great story (and much better than that terrible Season 6 bad Willow nonsense, thank you very much).

Oh my God. Oh MY GOD. This is without a doubt the most incredible fanfiction I've read. I loved the Faith/Angel interaction, and the ending. Everybody was so perfectly in character! I found I liked it as much - or maybe more than - the actual Season Six of Buffy, so I think you should definitely apply to Joss Whedon for a job :D
I also love that Buffy didn't immediately become okay with Faith and Angel being together, like I've read in many bad fanfics... because Buffy isn't the forgiving sort in regards to Faith, not at all. You kept her in character completely, just like everyone else!
All in all, an incredibly brilliant awesome fic, you should totally have more reviews!

"When I started out writing this story, I was determined to do something that no one else was doing. I wanted to do something different."
I think you managed that thing. ;)

Alright, I've just spent the last couple of hours (beginning at midnight, incidentally) reading this fic, so my brain is shot to hell, but I thought I'd review anyway. I read your first book some time ago ... don't remember if I reviewed that. Don't care, either, right now.
Anyway. Well. I can't seem to find words to properly review this ... you'll just have to take that as a compliment to the brilliance and coolness of this story. Heh. If it sucked, I wouldn't have bothered sitting here reading it ... matter of fact, if it was 'average', I wouldn't have bothered either, but this was way cool. I didn't understand some parts, but it's late, and it's a long story so by the time I got to the end I didn't really remember the beginning ... that's not a bad thing, by the way.
I think this is a great story, especially how well you wrote Faith. In the Buffyverse, she was always my favorite Slayer (come on, she's got that bad-ass thing going, and while Buffy's cool, I seem to prefer the baddies). I especially like how you wrote her redemption and all that ... it was a lot more believable than all those fanfics that have the kiss-and-make-up theme going.
Plus the scene with Angel singing was just hilarious.

I love your writing. Lush, descriptive, and some excellent characterization. Particularly with your usage of Spike in this chapter.
But, I have to be honest here. Angel's confession speech to Faith, wherein he tells her why he wishes to be with Faith instead of Buffy... to be honest, it comes across to me as horrifyingly condescending of him. And, while true to characterization, reflects upon parts of Angel's character I find really distasteful.
And, I don't for a minute, believe that Buffy is in any way okay, or ever really will be again following what she's just been through. Or that she's in any way okay with any of the people in her life.

This is a beautiful and lovely story for Faith. And I'm very proud of her, that she's finally found the strength within herself and make so much out of her opportunities. To feel appreciated, and to have earned that appreciation she has craved.
If you do write a follow up, I really would prefer you wrote about Faith and not Buffy. In most ways - to me, Faith's story is really done. I just don't see her as having any interesting growth or progression following. There will be adventures, but IMHO she has no more conflict.
Whereas I cannot possibly imagine Buffy doing anything but falling horribly after her ordeal.
