To make matters worse, an unknown creature is stalking the streets of Sunnydale - a creature that Buffy is sure has its roots on Angel's home streets of L.A. Meanwhile, in the City of Angels, Cordelia stumbles upon a cult of runaway kids who worship vampires and Angel investigates an invisible presence which has been causing havoc in the local prisons. As Buffy and Angel pool information about their respective discoveries, it soon becomes clear that there has to be a connection...With action taking place in both Los Angeles and Sunnydale, THE BURNING is the beginning of a fabulous new crossover series which will continue with Unseen 2: THE DOOR TO ALTERNITY in August 2001 and Unseen 3: THE LONG WAY HOME in October.
