St. Louis author Heather Brewer attracted millions of fans around the world with her bestselling Chronicles of Vladimir Tod series about a vampire leading a double-life as an American teenager. In the spin-off series, the Slayer Chronicles the story is told from the perspective of Vlad’s arch-enemy vampire slayer Joss McMillan.
In the first installment in the series, Joss witnessed his sister's murder at the hands of a vampire and his whole life changed. He learned that not only is his family part of the Slayer Society, a group whose mission is to rid the world of vampires, but he was their new recruit. As Joss trained he discovered powers that could make him the youngest, strongest Slayer in history.
In “Second Chance,” 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.
