    Stakeout is a novella in the Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter series by Nikki Jefford. This book takes place during book two in the series and is told from Noel's point of view. I think Fane really is a good guy at heart. I'm still Team Dante all the way, but Fane's is more of a softie than I thought. I liked seeing this side of him. I thought there was much more going on behind the scenes, and Noel's perspective further showed there definitely is more going on than what we know. This was a very necessary read for fans of this series. We learn some much needed information and some things are further explained.

    Stakeout by Nikki Jefford was kindly provided to me by the Xpresso Book Tours for review. The opinions are my own.

    So I admit I was totally leary of reading Stakeout. Not because I don’t like the series because I love it, and Nikki Jefford’s writing but I was just so pissed off at Noel at the end of Northern Bites. I womaned up though and decided to hear her side of the story. 




    This book is 2.5 but it actually takes place during Northern Bites it’s just Noel’s pov. I really liked seeing her side of the story. I wouldn’t mind having future books being written in both her and Aurora’s povs because she bring something different to the story. Just as much as Valerie does even though I hate to say that. So there is some overlapping but since Dante and Noel were on different missions then Aurora it’s not the same thing over again. We get some new information that is definitely important so you definitely need to read this.




    Noel is a pretty tough little chica. I loved that she has some definite sauciness about her but not in the annoying way Valerie does. We get to know more of Noel’s background and why she ended up in the government program. It’s actually pretty crazy and creepy. I also wanted to smack her roommate Trudy. How was that girl so dense. I really liked Noel and the fact that she wasn’t as gothy as she seemed. I also liked that she had a crush on Gavin. I’m not sure but it made her seem more teenagery and not so cold. Gave her more heart.




    I think Dante found his way back onto my bad side after reading this. Although he can pretty funny at times he is also frustrating too. Reckless and doesn’t really think about Vampires as more than just monsters. Oh Dante you're so crazy.




    Since this a novella it’s short and a quick read. I loved the story though and getting to know Noel. It’s definitely an awesome addition to the series. I can’t wait for Evil Red.

    I lost much of my enthusiasm for vampires several years back and

    I lost much of my enthusiasm for vampires several years back and then two authors got my attention with their vampiric tales. One of those authors was, and still is, Nikki Jefford. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed everything I’ve read by her and the Aurora Sky series has never let me down.

    High school student Aurora Sky is the titular star of the series, having been recruited by a government agency to be a vampire hunter but not of the usual sort. Rather than going in with stakes and other paraphernalia, Aurora just offers her neck and her “special” blood . She doesn’t operate on her own, though, and is part of a group of teens who all have particular strengths. One of those teens is an informant named Noel Harper and Stakeout is her story.

    These teens are so well-developed that I feel as though I know them all (although I don’t think I went to high school with a bunch of vampires and those who hunt them).Even some of the vampires are very likeable…but there’s not a sparkle in sight. Noel is a girl who is conflicted, not sure what she’s doing or why, and she has some serious personal baggage. By the time Stakeout came to an end, I was totally connected to her and can’t wait to meet her again.

    So, why do I like these books so much? Well, first of all, Ms. Jefford is such a good writer from a construction standpoint and the grammatical flaws and typos are few enough to be of no real consequence. Most of all, I love this series because it’s so much fun, with humor and action and mystery and all sorts of good things. I’m quite sure the next book, Bad Blood, will be every bit as entertaining and I’m very glad we only have to wait till May for that one.

    This was a fantastic look into one of the secondary characters of the Aurora Sky Vampire Hunter series. Noel is an interesting character with a lot of backstory, most of which is pretty tragic. Her perspectives on the main characters are also refreshing -- it's fun to see Aurora from someone else's POV. All in all, love this book and its series!
