Buffy: Season Ten Volume 1: New Rules
New Season. New Players. New Rules. Season Ten begins!
While slaying the zompires that have overrun a small California town, Buffy and her pals are shocked to discover a new kind of vampire: harder to kill, able to transform and walk in the light of day--like Dracula . . . If that weren't enough, the rules of magic are literally being rewritten. While the crew attempts to find out exactly what this means and restore the status quo, Xander is the victim of a haunting as his relationship with Dawn crumbles.
Executive produced by Buffy creator Joss Whedon!
