First Kill (The Slayer Chronicles, #1) by Heather Brewer
This series is a sister series or perhaps brother series or probably the best term might be a cousin series to the "Chronicles of Vladimir Tod" series. I liked all of that series except for the ending, which I thought sucked (it was not really that bad, but the word just fits so well). Anyway, this book tells how Joss first became a member of the Slayer Society and explains a bit how slayers have seemingly super-human type skills - it is genetic apparantly. Joss's uncle Abraham is a slayer and he has been charged with training his nephew in all things slayer. Joss spends a summer with his uncle and a group of slayers going through training and also trying to find a hidden group of vampires that are nearby. The book is suspenseful and well written and I like how it is tied in to the other series. I look forward to reading the rest of the books in this new series when they come out.
