Smoke and Mirrors is a slash 98-page Buffy novel by Lisa Martin.


From the distributor, Agent With Style: "Xander and Spike are closer than ever, and Anya is determined to make them pay for her pain and humiliation. She plans not only to take down Xander, his lover and their friends, but to play with them for a while. Because just killing them would be too easy. A girl needs to have some fun."


It is part of the "The Vengeance Trilogy".

Reactions and Reviews

The Vengeance Trilogy (Stained Glass, Smoke and Mirrors, Sanity) by Lisa Martin. From the Buffy the Vampire Slayer fandom, featuring Spike/Xander. Pretty covers, decent layout and formats, intriguing if at times very confusing story line, but dear gods, the grammar! Most people give non-native English speaking authors a break when it comes to critique. I don't. In the online and publishing world today there is absolutely no excuse for not finding a native English speaker to help you out. That's why this trilogy gets a very mediocre review. It's painfully obvious that neither the author nor her editor are native English speakers. There are constant grammar errors in each zine and with examples such as the Elusive Lover zines written so perfectly by non-native speakers, there just aren't any excuses for the poor quality of this trilogy. I wouldn't recommend getting these zines; wait for them online. [1]
