Seventeen-year old Faith Lehane has been living on the streets of Boston for two years now, ever since she ran away from home, doing what she has to in order to survive. Itís a hard life when youíre alone in the world, and Faith is doing the best she can: trying to keep warm, trying to get some food in her belly...and hanging on by her fingernails. She gets by on looks and charm, luck and swagger, an ample helping of street smarts, and most of all, knowing when to run. But even though running is her specialty, she canít dodge a bullet forever: Faith's destiny catches up to her, and she discovers there really are monsters in the world...and heroes to fight them...
Enter Rebecca Greer, Faith's Watcher. Rebecca takes Faith in, teaches her how to fight, how to be strong...and how to respect herself. Because some day, Faith might become the next Slayer...
But as Faith was painstakingly building a life for herself, Buffy Summersí life was crashing down around her: when Angel, her vampire lover, lost his soul, he tried to destroy everyone Buffy cared about. Buffy killed him, and sent him to hell...and lost the man she loves. Or so she thought. Now Angel is back, with his soul restored. But the damage has been done...and Buffy doesnít know if she can ever love again...or if she can even love herself.
The next Slayer is called, and she just happens to be from Boston. Faith revels in her power, but she soon finds that being the Slayer means you have a target on your back. And when Kakistos, a vampire who seemingly canít be killed, comes looking to destroy the new Slayer and everyone she cares about, and the life Faith had built for herself comes crashing down around her, she has no choice but to run again...and the only way to protect the man she loves is to leave him behind.
Faith runs to Sunnydale...to Buffy Summers. The only person who can help her. But even if the two Slayers can manage to defeat Kakistos and his followers, a far greater threat looms...the greatest threat the world has ever known.
If Faith and Buffy can survive it, they just might find that out of the ashes of their old lives, they can build a new one together...
