If there is one thing eighteen-year-old Aurora Sky wants, it’s to get off the iceberg she calls home. Being kissed before she graduates wouldn’t hurt either.
Then a near-fatal car wreck changes everything. Government agents step in and save Aurora’s life in exchange for her services as a vampire hunter. In Alaska. Basically she’s a glorified chew toy. All thanks to her rare blood type, which sends a vampire into temporary paralysis right before she has to finish the job… by hand.
Now Aurora’s only friends are groupies of the undead and the only boy she can think about may very well be a vampire. And if he’s a vampire, she’ll have to kill him.
If you are a vampire/vampire hunter book lover, then I think this book would be for you. I really enjoyed the story and the writing style of Nikki Jefford. The new concept of the vampire hunter that she brought along really caught my attention. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait for the next installment! I definitely think you should give this book a try :)
As I mentioned before, I really enjoyed the new concept that Nikki Jefford had with the vampire hunters. The whole blood transfusion/virus was a really unique twist on a popular concept and that's what made the book that much more intriguing. Also, this book was a very quick read for me. It was a definite page turner and had lots of elements that grabs your attention.
I enjoyed the majority of the characters in this book. Aurora is the only one I don't know where I stand. At times I liked her, but then at times I didn't. After the accident a new Aurora emerged. Her behavior was entertaining to me because I felt like she was acting out, but then I started to wonder why exactly she started acting like that. Was it the whole situation that was sprung on her in general? Fane was awesome :) In the beginning I didn't know if he was going to be a major asset to the book, but as I continued to read about him, the more and more I liked him! The chemistry between Fane and Aurora was a plus and I can't wait to see how things turn out in book 2.
There are still some minor things I'm confused about, but its nothing too serious. Like why Aurora's first group of friends acted the way they did towards her. And Aurora's mom, can we say annoying?! I mean she's your typical mom, but I had some major eye rolling going on throughout the book.
Overall, I really enjoyed the book! And can't wait for the release of the sequel. Thanks so much to Nikki Jefford for a review copy of Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter. All thoughts are my honest opinion.
