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.

About the Author
Heather Brewer was not your typical teen growing up. She wore black, danced under full moons and devoured every book in sight. She hasn t changed much. Today, Heather can be found writing in her funky, black Happy Bunny jammie pants, dancing under the full moon, devouring every book in sight, and attending renaissance fairs in costume (and in character). Heather doesn't believe in happy endings...unless they involve blood. She lives in Missouri with her husband and two children. Her new series, BLOODBOUND, is slated to be published in Fall 2011.

Praise For First Kill

"Readers who still have an appetite for vampire lore, and a willingness to enter what looks to be like another fairly well-written series, will appreciate Joss as a character who is both sensitive and brave, as well as smart."
