WEFOUNDThe Book of Fours (Buffy: The Vampire Slayer)

The Book of Fours is an original novel based on the American television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer .

During the final confrontation with the Gatherer, Willow and Cordelia briefly serve as hosts for India (the Slayer of Water) and Kendra (the Slayer of Earth) respectively. Eventually with the help of the spirits of the former Slayers, Lucy Hanover and the spirits that live in the woods where the battle takes place, the group defeats the Gatherer and destroys it by each absorbing parts of its soul. Buffy also decapitates Cecile with the axes.

Buffy novels such as this one are not usually considered by fans as canonical . However, unlike fan fiction , overviews summarizing their story, written early in the writing process, were 'approved' by both Fox and Joss Whedon (or his office), and the books were therefore later published as officially Buffy merchandise.
