This book has it all: action-mystery-flash backs and more! It's about Jack the Ripper wanting to get back to this dimension, and maybe it will work! Spike has a big role in this book. When you begin reading, you don't wanna stop till the last page!

This if by far Nancy's best book. I liked the flashbacks and it's always fun to see the Angel/Darla and Spike/Dru. Plus, as a fan of Buffy/Spike I liked their scenes. It's obvious there is a lot of passion between them.

"Blood and Fog" is the best Nancy Holder book that I have read. I think "Blood and Fog" does an excellent job of dealing with the very complex issues of Season Six.
All of the characters in this book were written very well. I loved the flashbacks to Spike and Dru, but I am very glad that the majority of the story was current day. The Spike/Buffy relationship was written very well.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading "Blood and Fog." I loved Jack the Ripper's story.
I strongly recommend this book to all fans of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." I hope to read more books by Nancy Holder in the future.

I bought this book because the premise, I thought, sounded kind of cool. Plus, it seemed to be one of the all-too-few Buffy the Vampire Slayer spin-off novels that focused (more or less) on Spike, who I often found to be the most interesting character in the series. Unfortunately, it quickly became evident, as I began to read the book, that the blurb was an almost entirely false summary of the book's actual content. Added to the sum, the characterisations were off and the writing sub-par. I don't generally have very high hopes for the Buffy novels, most of them are pretty awful as literature goes, and very few of them hold a candle to the writing on the actual show, but I did have some high hopes for this one. Sadly, yet again, they were pretty much dashed.
I guess the book could've been worse, but for the most part it was nonsensical, badly written, badly researched, and dredged up (and unimaginatively rehashed) some of the stupidest parts of the television show.
I wouldn't recommend this book. I do wish there were more Spike-centric BtVS novels out there, though. He was a fascinating character.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This novel was horrible for reasons I can only begin to describe. The characters didn't sound anything close to the way they do on the show, nor did they act like it, and they sure weren't funny. Significant chunks of the book were wasted on bland flashbacks concerning Spike, Drusilla, and a cowardly nineteenth-century slayer named Elizabeth, and more of the book is wasted on Anya and Xander, who ultimately play very minor roles in the plot and yet for some reason garnish pages and pages of material. The endless fog that the main villain utilizes gets boring after about two minutes, and you can top off all that awfulness with the fact that Holder apparently forgot to explain certain details of her B-stories, like how on earth Anya got from the car accident to a cliff on the edge of town while she was unconscious. Oh, and Holder's brief quip about ancient Romans having nothing better to do but persecute Christians was beyond pathetic. Any student of classics could tell you that it was the Jews who instigated most of the early Christian persecutions, not the Romans, since the Romans were an incredibly tolerant, live-and-let-live sort of people. That information may not be very politically correct, but it's true.
There probably are good Buffy books out there, but this isn't one of them. I've read three books in the Buffy series by Holder now (Immortal, The Book of Fours, and this one), and this was by far the worse. Joss really needs to quit letting Holder write for the series.
Please, don't waste your money (...).

This was the first Buffy the Vampire Slayer book I ever read. And let me tell you, it did not dissapoint! This book got me started on my obsession with Buffy books. I just really liked the story and I thought the ending was really good too! Anyway, give some hours of your time and pick up Blood and Fog. And I agree with that other reviewer. "He's Evil. I want him." Was one of my fave lines!
