The first book in the fantastic new series from the creator of The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod—now in paperback!

Over a million readers have heard Vlad Tod's story; now it's time to hear Joss's. When Joss McMillan witnesses his sister's murder—at the hands of a vampire—his whole life changes. He learns that not only is his family part of the Slayer Society, a group whose mission is to rid the world of vampires, but he is their new recruit. As Joss trains 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.

Written 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.

I am very pleased w this book. Of course, if u want to pick up on the mini details and the meaning of the strange people, u have to read the Vlad tod series, starting with 8th grade bites

This us a really good book. If you like action this is it.its about this strange boy and his sister. Joss has almost like superhuman strength. His reflexes are better , he is stronger and faster then normal boys and girls his age. So people at his school think he is weird and he had no friends. He thinks of himself as a ghost basically. Then onr night he wakes up to jis sister crying . He goes over to her room and pushes his head through the door until he sees whats in their. Then he quickly takes his head back out horrified on what he sees. Well im not going t o spoil it . So lets just say he joins the slayer acadamey kills vampires untill he kills the right one trying to avenge his sister. Roar!!!! :)

I was definitely ready to dig into Joss' background. Brewer did a wonderful job with First Kill! I think I appreciate Joss' role in Vlad's world even more now! Looking forward to the next Slayer Chronicles. :0>

This is the second vampire series by Heather Brewer that Keaton and I are going through. He really likes the series and I'm glad he's enjoying the reading - so far this is the sixth book. Even better is that we get to talk about the story and characters together.

Most people read from the vampire's perspective but now we have the hunter's. This book was just as good as tods books. Ive only read the first one but hope to read the other ones in this series.
