Adapted from Goodreads:

You've heard Vlad's side of the story . . . now, it's Joss's turn.

Now, Heather Brewer brings us the other side of the story, from the perspective of Vlad's former friend turned mortal enemy: vampire slayer Joss Macmillan. In five books that can be read alongside Vlad Tod or entirely on their own, Joss discovers his powers as the youngest, strongest slayer in history. And just in time, too: with all the vampires running rampant, he's going to need all the help he can get. This action-packed series will quench the thirst of even the hungriest veteran minions.

Finally, we get to see what makes vampire slayer Joss Macmillan tick! I really enjoyed THE CHRONICLES OF VLADIMIR TOD, and I absolutely loved Joss's character, so I was extremely excited when I found out Auntie Heather was going to write THE SLAYER CHRONICLES.

FIRST KILL is an intense look at where Joss came from. We learn more about Cecile, get an in depth look at the uncle that made Joss a slayer, and really meet the boy behind the slayer in VLAD TOD. The pain, loss, and heartbreak that shape Joss are remarkable and the story begins to fill in the gaps in the VLAD TOD storyline.

Joss's relationship with his family members is so important, and patterns of neglect and abuse, and Joss's response to those patterns, are intriguing and reveal so much about his character and his future. So many questions were answered, but so many more a revealed. Then there is his relationship to Sirus and Kat, who become his first true friends. A friendship that will deeply affect his future. Finally, the relationship that is born between Joss and the other Slayer and the Slayer Society. Questions are frowned upon, obedience is required.

Joss's training pushes him to the edge mentally, physically, and emotionally, but the task that remains before him will only push him farther.

I absolutely loved FIRST KILL and Joss! I cannot wait to find out what is going to happen next!
