Blog Tour: Aurora Sky

Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter by Nikki Jefford
Series: Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter #1
Publication: December 9th 2012
Genre: YA Paranormal

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, will she be forced to kill him?

My Thoughts:
Geez, Louise! This book was awesome! Aurora is quite a gal! I liked that she was kick ass, AND kind of dumb about some things. She doesn't just ease right on into the deal, but stumbles a bit and slowly finds her way. I LOVED that! Aurora is kind of a bit like Buffy in the way that she does her job, but still tries to do things her own way.

(Also, Don't think that the name Joss got by me. I knew what you were aiming for Ms. Jefford! All hail King Joss!)

Anyhoodles, don't get me started on how yummy Fane is. I kinda got a blend of Angel and Spike all mixed into one, which would normally feel a bit cheap, but in this case it's done oh so right! I liked his mix of bad boy with a heart of gold, cliche, but did I mention he was yummy? Yeah, I'm gonna stick with that one!

Dante is fun. I can't wait to find out more about him. I seriously am hoping for a deelightful little love triangle...but I'll settle for a sharp witted, funny, and slightly snarky older brother type. :) I'm flexible that way!

This book was gobbled up rather quickly and with a silly satisfied grin on my face! I cannot wait for the next book! WISHLISTED!

  1. I don't usually comment on reviews of my books - sacred reader/follower space and all - but this review got such a smile out of me.

    1) My middle name is Louise. ;)

    2) Joss - only a true Buffy fan would notice that tribute.

    3) The Angel/Spike reference to Fane. <3

    You rock, Melissa!
