First Kill (The slayer Chronicles )

Title:First Kill
Author: Heather Brewer
Published: September 20th 2011
Publisher: Dutton Juvenile

With over a million copies already in print, The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod is still sinking its fangs into new readers every day. Now, bestselling author Heather Brewer brings us the other side of the story, from the perspective of Vlad’s former friend turned mortal enemy: vampire slayer Joss McMillan. This is the first in a series of five books that can be read alongside Vlad Tod or entirely on their own.

Joss McMillan’s perfect life crashes down the night he witnesses his sister’s murder — at the hands of a vampire. He then finds out his family’s secret heritage: They are part of the Slayer Society, a group whose mission is to rid the world of vampires. Joss is their new recruit. As Joss trains, bent on seeking revenge for his sister, he discovers powers that could make him the youngest, strongest Slayer in history. But there is a traitor in the Society, one whose identity would shake Joss to the core . . . if the traitor doesn’t kill him first.

I'm was glad when I found out Joss was going to have his own series. His character was interesting in then Chronicles of Vlad and he seemed so intense and driven. I like that now we can get a see were he came from and how he got that way. I would definitely suggest to anyone to read the chroniclers of Vlad before the Slayer Chronicles it might help to understand some things and characters. If not before at least at some point would work cause its always good to hear two sides of a story. 

The characters were all really interesting even the one that didn't last long or were just passing though.They all had different skills and different takes on the way they live.Even though its Joss's story i would love to know more about his uncle Abraham's story because even though he meant well he wasn't exactly my favorite character at all.Abraham is decent as Joss’s uncle, though he tends to come across as a psychotic gym teacher.After reading the Vlad Chronicles  i already had a opinion about Joss and it complete changed I didn't like hime then i did but now i don't know.Yeah I get he was crushed after his sister died and all that but he seems really obsessed.That sort of makes me dislike him  but all in all I loved learning more about the Slayers and their rules, limitations and their initiation process. It was all cool to learn about.

The cover is simple but you can still see all the teen angstI cant wait to see what come next.3/5
