Blog Tour: Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter by: Nikki Jefford (Review and Giveaway)

Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter: Transfusion by: Nikki Jefford (2012)
242 pages
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 Review

I really enjoyed this book. I am a huge fan of novels about vampires and seeing what new characteristics the author gives them. Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter didn't let me down when it came to unique vampires. This is dark novel that takes a whole new spin on high school senioritis.

The Vampires: I enjoyed the new twist on vampires and I really think that the link between vampires and different diseases/viruses was very interesting. Although really creepy, I love how Aurora has to kill vampires. They have to bite her so she can take them down. In the end, It all comes down to the blood. 

Setting: This book takes place in Alaska! I was super excited to have a brand new setting that I haven't come across before. I loved it!

Aurora: I really do love Aurora. She is a complex character that goes through a lot in the span of a short book. She has great personality quarks and I felt her come alive through the pages. My other favorite thing about Aurora was getting to see her relationship with Dante, my favorite male in this book, who just so happens to be her vampire hunter mentor. They work really well together and I love how they don't just go around stabbing vampires with stakes, it is more complex than that. On the other hand, I'm not a big fan of Fane, Aurora's love interest. I don't know why but I just wasn't really feeling him as a character, he did get better, but their relationship just felt awkward at times. I'm not sure how else to explain it so I guess you will just have to read for yourself to find out.

Plot: This plot was exciting, fun, and although sometimes predictable still entertaining, and it had a decent shock value. The biggest aspect of the book that I love is that it was new and fresh. At times I felt like the plot could have been slightly better executed. Although it was well written and I enjoyed it, there was still something missing. I just can't seem to put my finger on it.

I say Read it. If you like vampire novels then you should give it a chance. It has some very intense scenes, the setting is awesome, Aurora is cool, and the story was new. I'm intrigued enough that I will be reading the second book. That right there should count for something.

3.5/5 Rating
