Review: Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter by Nikki Jefford

Publication Date: 11/27/2012
Series: Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter #1
Rating: 3.5 Stars

Official Blurb:

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.

(Mature YA, new adult series that becomes progressively more mature. Underage drinking, sexual situations, mild language and blood sucking.)

Aurora is just your typical high school senior. She’s ready to graduate and move on to her adult life at Notre Dame (that almost hurt to type because I’m a Purdue Boilermaker and friends don’t let friends go to NDJ ). College associations aside, her life was simple until a fatal car accident took away everything she every wanted for her life and plunged her into a life of hunting vampires. The way in which she’s transformed into a hunter is very unique. Most vampire hunters are kickass killing machines. Aurora’s hunting skills are very different. Her blood has been infused with several viruses which temporarily paralyze vampires. She’s been created to be a killer by the government in turn for saving her life.

I honestly loved this story. Its tease of forbidden romance and its imaginative ideals surrounding Jefford vampire hunter army creates such a thrilling and unique tale in the world of blood lusting vampires and the people trained to kill them. These characters will make you laugh out loud and yet you’ll be yelling at them at the same time. Aurora’s struggles to accept her new life showcases how complicated and conflicted her feelings are about her new life. She’s not a simple angst filled teenager anymore. She’s a government sanctioned and created vampire killing machine. Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter is the book that you cancel plans, send the hubby for pizza, and shut out the world to finish reading it.
