In C.J. Hill’s action-packed sequel to Slayers, the group of teens known as Slayers have been betrayed—but they won’t give up without a fight.

Tori’s got a problem. She thought she’d have one more summer to train as a dragon Slayer, but time has run out. When Tori hears the horrifying sound of dragon eggs hatching, she knows the Slayers are in trouble. In less than a year, the dragons will be fully grown and completely lethal. The Slayers are well-prepared, but their group is still not complete, and Tori is determined to track down Ryker—the mysterious missing Slayer.

What Tori doesn’t bargain for, however, is the surprising truth about her powers. She isn’t just a Slayer, she’s part Dragon Lord, too. How can Tori fight to save her friends when half of her is programmed to protect dragons? And with a possible traitor in their midst, the Slayers will be divided in more ways than they ever imagined.

My Thoughts:

Lately I’ve been really fascinated by the fantasy world. You know all the vampires, werewolves, demons, and etc. Well this book just hit one of the top of my favorites for the genre.

Slayers: Friends and Traitors is an awesome book that I just couldn’t put down. It held me captive through every single chapter. It was amazingly well written and the timing of the book didn’t seem to drag at all or hurry up the story.

I think my favorite characters in the book have to be Tori and Dirk who are also the main characters. Tori is your average teenage girl, well basically, I should say average teenage rich girl who just happens to be a Slayer. Slayers hunt down and kill dragons.

Dirk pretends to be a Slayer so that he can penetrate the camps security codes and secrets. He then hands everything over to his father who is a Dragon Lord, someone who protects the dragons. Only he wants the dragons so that he can become ruler of the world.

What happens when Dirk and Tori start to have feelings for one another? What will Tori do when she finds she has been betrayed not only by a friend but by someone she cares a bit about than just a friend?
