Now I have finished and reviewed First Kill, I decided do a few more reviews. I think I will do a review every three days. That leaves me plenty of time to read and review a book with time to spare.

Today I also had to go down to the shopping center with my mum, she wanted a hair cut and lucky for me the hairdressers is right next to QBD the book shop. She sit in her chair and I disappear of course into the book shop. I have listed three simple steps my mother fails to follow.

First of all no one should let me near a book shop while they are having a birthday sale.
Second if you do let me go please take all money out of my possession.
Third if you don't do either of the above be ready for this teen age book worm to stay up all weekend reading and as you failed the previous two step you have lost all right to complain.

Today I only left the store with 5 books. Woo I kind of proud of my self for finding this little bargain. All five books came as a set I got:

Have you read any of those books? If you have let me know what you think of them.

I am going to sit down and spend the weekend reading my 5 new awesome books and beg my mum to let me drive a half a hour just for strawberries.

First Kill by Heather Brewer

So here is my first ever review, pointing out it is 9 at night I have been up 13 hours just driven 3 hours straight and had 3 coffees, sorry if it makes no sense let me know what you think.

The Slayer Chronicles: First KillFirst Kill has a simple cover, yet it shows that this book has a connection with the Vladimir Tod series, it also gives you an insight into the age group the book is suited for.

The blurb is well written in the way it gives you a little perspective into the story line and the setting of the book. Reading the blurb lets you understand the background of Joss a little more, it also leaves you wanting more details of the past and future for Joss McMillan as he discovers his family heritage and learns how to avenge a death that haunts his dreams.

In this book you will follow the journey of Joss whom is leading an innocent life away from all bad, until one night he witnesses his sisters murder. Then for the next three years his sister haunts his dreams looking for peace and justice for her death.

Joss McMillan is only 10 years old when his story starts, He is a strong boy who has a stubborn streak that makes him the bigger and stronger young man we come to love by the end of the book. Joss faces many challenges from his family and other people whom he trains and works with, he also struggles with the loss of his sister, the fact she still haunts him every time he sleeps but that just fuels his fire to fight and find justice. After getting in fights, surviving ordeals that most of us wouldn't and then getting up and still facing his future, Joss is a strong character and very well built, Aunt Heather did very good work writing his character.

Abraham McMillan is a new to the pages. He is Joss's uncle, he seems like a person you don't to know or talk to but you really can't pick your family. Looking out for your family in the slayer business makes you seem like a butt. Abraham is a good teacher and can teach a lesson without words. He will surprise you in the book (totally surprise you)

Sirus, *sigh* what to say, wow. so Sirus is really sweet, he is a caretaker or medic which ever you prefer. Got a cut Sirus will fix it, Been beaten up in hand-to-hand combat Sirus will fix it or half dead and need rest Sirus will save you. Sirus is so cool yet so evil, he is nice and sweet and even a dad but he has his secrets (gasp worth).

There are other slayers in the book but ill let you meet them yourself.

At the start of the book meeting Joss as a young boy and a older brother while we end the book with him a young and growing man and an only child.

I rate this book
I recommend this book
To any one who likes vampire books or had read the Vladimir Tod books, it is a really good read so go pre-order your copy now before some vampire bites you and you become a drudge (so kinda not cool).

So that is my review, let me know what you think

The Slayer Chronicles First Kill

My response when I got it in the mail was to jump up and down and hug the book like a complete random, the part that embarrassed my mother who was standing next to me at the time was the fact that we were standing in the middle of the post office. I will be reading this book tonight and reviewing it tomorrow.

The cover looks amazing. I do not know if they are keeping that cover but it is pretty cool. (picture left) The few book sights I have looked at all have the same picture so I do truly think they are keeping the cover. *claps in delight*

You can pre-order your copy at amazon or any good book store (I assume).

I would be reading it right now but I have to get my college work done *gives text book evils*.

Must read this book before I sleep tonight, sleep is important yes I know. But gaining knowledge by reading books is just something that is the up most importance, well it is to me any way.

Other than that I have two book signings I am attending in August, I think I might make a events page. Events I have been to or will be attending in the future. *writes that on the to do list*

Maria V Snyder on the 5th of August.

Lauren Kate on the 7th of August.

Both events will involve my best friend and I traveling to different locations, catching trains and then buses. Also coffee, home made chocolate chip cookies and of course books. See perfect days ahead.

Now I am off to work on my college work and try to figure out why in all of the world did I decided to study a Diploma of Business with out studying the certificates first.


Quote by me. "A book holds the key to another world, the key to imagine you are lost in a land of words, it up to you and your imagination to make it a world of adventure"
