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.
The Slayer Chronicles can be read alongside The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod or entirely on their own. This second installment gives readers even more insight into the nightmares that drive Joss the Slayer.
Heather Brewer doesn't believe in happy endings, unless they involve blood. An anti-bullying advocate and dynamic public speaker, Ms. Brewer has connected personally with her fans, who call themselves her Minions. She lives near St. Louis, Missouri, with her husband and two children.
Praise for Second Chance:
“This is a solid read with a swift pace, and Brewer does a great job of building tension. Fans of the first book will be back for more, and this title makes a great read-alike for fans of the Vladimir Tod series and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” –VOYA Reviews
"Fans will enjoy slaking their thirst for more vampire adventures here." --Kirkus Reviews
