One Girl in All the World is the second book of The Next Generation novel series. Written by Kendare Blake, it will be published on January 31, 2023 by Hyperion.


Into every generation, a slayer is born. One girl in all the world... maybe.

Frankie Rosenberg is the world's first slayer-witch, but she doesn't have that slay-life balance figured out just yet. After all, being the newest slayer means that another slayer had to die. Frankie and the Scooby gang are still reeling from the deadly explosion that rocked the annual slayer retreat ― and grappling with new evidence that some slayers may have made it out alive. And even though they defeated bloodthirsty vampire the Countess, it doesn't mean Sunnydale is free from the forces of evil.

Something has reawakened the Hellmouth ― and is calling old friends home. Someone is performing demon magic in the shadows, opening portals between dimensions. Everyone has demons to contend with ― of the metaphorical and the very real (occasionally very hot) variety. And an oracle warns of a new evil on its way: the Darkness.

Could this be what attacked the slayers? And is it coming for Frankie?[1]

Behind the scenes


  • Blake teased about the book: "There's a magical stone given to Frankie by the Hunter of Thrace, and it's called the stalker's stone, so naturally Jake has fun with that. And oh! Don't you love those classic Buffy demons? Don't you wonder what they're up to? Wouldn't you like to see a few of them again?"[2]
