Book Review: Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter by Nikki Jefford

Aurora Sky (Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter #1) by Nikki Jefford 
Genre: New Adult (Paranormal/Fantasy Romance)
Date Published: December 9, 2012
Publisher: Self

Her blood is toxic to vampires.

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 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. Contains mild language, violence, sexual situations . . . and blood sucking.)

Aurora Sky is the first book in the Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter series by Nikki Jefford. This was a pretty unique and enjoyable story. I've never heard of Vampire Hunters being created quite like this. It was interesting. I enjoyed Aurora as a character for the most part. She had her moments. I'm not sure why she was so eager to give up her virginity so quickly. The scene felt forced and unnecessary. I didn't like Fane at first. then he started to grow on me a little, but I don't know. I'm still not sold on him. I don't really understand why Aurora's friends shunned her. I'm guessing the friends were just superficial. That's how they came off. Also, something is up with her father. He's acting like a complete jerk. Was he like this before the accident? Maybe we'll find out in upcoming books. As a whole, Aurora Sky kept me entertained. I enjoyed the action and the different types of vampires and how they are created. Like humans, there seem to be good ones and bad ones. Dante was great! I loved him. I'm not sure he's too open to the whole "good vampires" idea, but he's a lot of fun. I absolutely do not trust the military people who "saved" Aurora. I think there's some kind of hidden agendas going on. I'm anxious for more!
