....this book is very young, and sadly very (in my opinion of course) very poorly written.Now, I know that's a subjective statement and I'm sure many will like this book. It's all a matter of taste but I was really....REALLY glad to put it aside.First the dialogue. I write and one of the things I'm never satisfied with in my own manuscripts is the dialogue. Here the conversations always (for me of course) came across as stilted and stiff. Aside from that there is very little plot at all other than, "I've got it rough, nobody likes me everybody hates me, think I'll go eat worms".We do finally get a "sort of plot" but all the book really does is lead us through our protagonist's angsty, "yucky" life and set up the next book. Aside from lack of plot then there are the characters. From Joss to his mean, nasty, awful..."yucky" uncle they are a bit flat and you've probably met them all. They may have come from "Characters are Us" for all I know.I'm sorry I really don't care for this book. If you do I'm very happy for you please, enjoy. As for me...don't think I'll follow this YA series.Just me of course.

Bestseller Ebook First Kill I don’t usually read young-adult novels. Not that I have anything against them… I suppose I’m not usually drawn to them I guess. From Heather Brewer; New York Times best-selling author of The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod comes The Slayer Chronicles: First Kill. This book made me open my wallet at the bookstore and purchase it is because it’s about vampire hunters…and those are my favorite kind of vampire stories. A vampire kills Joss McMillan’s six-year-old sister. At the funeral, his uncle, Abraham, tells him about a secret society of vampire slayers from which he is descended from, and Joss swears to avenge his sister’s death. His uncle also tells him that he belongs to a bloodline who possess special skills, strength and agility that allow them to take down the undead. It’s basically the male equivalent of Buffy.A few years pass, and he’s old enough to begin his training for the Slayer Society. Throughout the book he has to go through various tests and trails, etc. What I didn’t like about the book was that it seemed to drag…. the plot focused to much on his training and other meaningless info, and not enough on killing vampires. Joss doesn’t get to kill any vamps until towards the end of the book. Oh yeah, it also ends with a stupid twist.Like I said…it drags on and on. Was it any good? Well I gave it two stars… so it was alright I guess. Will I be reading the rest of the books? I don’t know…maybe.
