The stakes are life or death
The summer after Joss failed to kill the vampire Vladimir Tod, he gets a second chance to prove himself as a Slayer. He is sent to New York City to hunt down a serial killer that the Slayer Society believes is a vampire. It is up to Joss to lead his Slayer team, and through their detective work, they discover that there are actually four vampire brothers who are on the killing rampage. Joss must use all his skill to save the innocent people of New York City from the murderers. Joss's status as a Slayer depends on it.
*******************This book had an appearance by Otis and some flashbacks to Joss's little fallout with Vlad, which I kinda loved. Joss is still deal with what happened in the ending of the last book and confused about vampires he has come in contact with three vampires that he genuinely liked, he is starting to question his actions even though he hates what they did to his sister Cecile and keeps havig nightmares.
Jose messed up bad and the slayer society knows he took a private job-his misson to kill Vlad- now he has to prove that he can be a hardcore slayer just like the rest of his pals and scary Uncle Abraham who still pushes his young nephew to his limits because of whatever issues he has.Not to mention he's getting creepy texts from Kat, who wants revenge because of what went down in the last book.
Second Chance is a lot more fast paced then the first book and where introduced to a few new characters and get to see the old favorites. Even after reading the second book I'm still not sure how I feel about Joss I like him a lot more now then when I read the Vlad Chronicles but certain things bother me about him.To me he's a character you want to like but can't maybe he'll when me over in the next book.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 i'm rooting for him to change the slayer socity or to do something epic like that.
The cover was great in typical Heather Brewer fasion it's angst filledand eye cathing.So i really wanted to like this book but i'm not sure I though the first book was okay but this one was sort of lacking.Maybe it's just me so I would still say to give it a try.Hopefully the next book can pull me in but maybe not.2/5
