Book Review: Aurora Sky, Vampire Hunter by Nikki Jefford

Cover Aurora Sky Vampire HunterIf 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.

review

I found this book on Book Bub through my email. It was free at the time. I read the blurb and it looked interesting. I am glad to find out that I was not disappointed.

Nikki Jefford weaves a tale of intrigue about the life of Denali High School Senior, Aurora Sky. She adds her own twist to the Vampire mythos. A twist similar to Resident Evil’s twist on Zombies which I find very interesting. A virus is the cause.

She is your typical outcast in the beginning of the book. Aurora has a select group of friends that she dwells with. To most of the school she is a nobody, a nothing that is until her accident. Even though, she wishes to go back to being normal. The accident that changed her life will not let her.

Her ‘saviors’ put her life even more at risk from then on. Even though Jefford shows a typical teenage life she throws in the horrors of a vampire hunter as well. However, the tricks are different than you’d believe.

I loved this book. I found that the twist at the end was something unexpected at best. I had to go back and read the ending a second time to make sure I read it correctly.

meet the author

Nikki Jefford loves fictional bad boys and heroines who kick butt. Books, travel, TV series, hiking, writing and Nikki Jeffordmotorcycle riding are her favorite escapes. She loves meeting people from all walks of life, from all around the globe; and wouldn’t trade her French husband in for anyone – not even Spike!

She’s a third generation Alaskan, born & raised in Anchorage, now living in northern Washington. Crazy about her dog, Cosmo. (Writer’s best friend.) The dark side of human nature fascinates her, so long as it’s balanced by humor and romance. Believes all animals, people and the planet should be treated kindly.

Her favorite TV heroines are Buffy, Veronica Mars, and Dr. Temperance ‘Bones’ Brennan.
