"Guarded" is the third volume of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Nine trade paperbacks, collecting issues eleven to fifteen of the comic book series.


The Chosen One has a new lease on life, courtesy of… Kennedy?! In a bold move to give disenfranchised Slayers a meaningful societal role (with pay), Kennedy recruits Buffy to act as bodyguard for high-profile clientele. But unlike the other recruits, Buffy struggles to abandon her Slaying instincts and looks for demony threats where none lie (much to Kennedy's dismay). So it's only natural that her first job is to protect a tech mogul who just so happens to be running from demon assassins![1]
