No Future for You compiles issues six through nine of Season 8. It tells the story of Faith as she tries to redeem herself by taking an assassination assignment. The writing is good, and Faith’s character develops nicely within the parameters already established while BtVS was on the air.

Giles’ character also undergoes a couple of predictable, if unexpected, twists. Buffy and the other members of the Scooby Gang, however, remain on the periphery and relatively flat.

I enjoyed rereading the set with the acquisition of this volume. Buffy fans should consider it, although I wouldn’t call it a must-read.

predictable but unexpected... now that's something you don't hear every day.

Not wanting to be a spoiler, I’ll just say that it’s one of those things I could have seen coming, but I really didn’t think they’d go there.
