Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter by Nikki Jefford

Thanks to her rare blood type, Aurora’s forced to hunt vampires in Alaska with her cute, but obnoxious partner Dante. Then there’s Fane, the dark prince of temptation, himself, and last person she wants to lose her heart to.

All she ever wanted was to get off the iceberg she calls home, but she owes her life to the agency. Basically she’s a glorified chew toy with poisoned blood that sends vampires 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.

This books needs some help! A slow read and at times i was skim reading andskipping whole pages. Story line really is way to hard to believe and main female chactacter is not that great! My opinion but others may enjoy it.

Auora Sky: Vampire Hunter is a different twist of the traditional vampire story. The plot was pretty interesting, a secret world of Vampire Hunters that all have AB negative blood (like me!) that when combined with a virus can be toxic to a vampire. It’s a hidden government project, people might suspect things but it’s not something for public consumption. Even though vampires don’t burn up in the sunlight they seem to prefer the cold and dark climate of Alaska. I found myself speeding through the pages intoxicated with curiosity and did finish this one in a day. Now normally in a YA book you have an MC that learns they have some superpower of sorts, whether it is moving things with their minds or turning out to be a different species altogether. Then usually the MC freaks out for maybe a day or two and the next thing you know they are up for the challenge taking life by storm. The thing that made Aurora herself so interesting was this was not the case for her. She wakes up to this new reality after a near death experience and is told she is now working for the government as a Vampire Hunter. She had been timid and just trying to make it through each day so that she can get the hell out of dodge and start her life over as far from Alaska as possible. Suddenly it’s all taken away from her and rather than embrace her new role she ends up on a downward spiral and I mean really downward. Aurora completely changes and does not give two cents about what anyone thinks of her. She skips school, she hangs with an interesting crowd, and she even takes on a new slutty persona. I couldn’t keep my eyes away from the pages. She makes a lot of bad decisions but those bad decisions kind of cover up the good changes that are happening. Aurora is no longer the easy going push over; she becomes more charismatic and daring. She finally evens out when she gets involved with Fane and even though the reason she gets involved with him is kind of bad. He turns out to be the grounding that she needs for her life. I just found it easy to imagine Aurora as someone actually going through the experience. I thought she was strong main character. At first I didn’t like Fane; I was like oh geez please don’t tell me she gets involved with this guy. As I got to him in the book, I couldn’t help but find a soft spot for him. Although he might seem outwardly like a jerk it’s really only others perception that make him that way. You never really think about the fact that she doesn’t actually talk to him and he never really does anything really mean to her. Mostly she just thinks he’s kind of scuzzy. Really just the girl he chooses to associate with at first is scuzzy. There are lot of different characters and personalities to keep you entertained. We are introduced to the world of Aurora before near life and death experience and then after. Which surprisingly gives the world a whole new look. Much like high school sometimes the people you think are your friends are really not the ones going to stick with you until the end. The ending left me hanging and wanting more. I can’t wait to see where the story goes and what happens to Aurora. You can tell there is a lot more to the vampire society and the government agency that needs to be explored and I’m definitely curious to learn about it myself.

I really enjoyed reading this book! It was kick ass of course since our protagonists are vampire hunters. Aurora Sky is our 18 year old protagonist, and when the story starts out, she isn’t a vampire hunter…yet. Aurora was crazy, independent, and kick ass. Sometimes her craziness annoyed me though (how crazy she acted with Fane, her boyfriend). I do like how she wants to do things her way and she does not let her mom get in the way. Fane is a kick ass too and the bad boy type, but when it comes to Aurora, he shows his soft side which I think is cute! There is also a twist about one of the characters which I kind of figured out almost halfway through the book, but maybe some readers won’t & will be surprised. Who knows. The book is fast paced with a lot of actions which made me hooked on to the story. I just don’t like books that drags on. This one did not! *Claps* The only thing I did not like is I feel like the information that there was such thing as vampires was presented too rapid and too fast to take in. The information was thrown in like someone just snapped their finger and *boom* vampires existed. More facts could have been said in the book (how they came to Earth, Alaska, etc.). I do like Aurora’s reaction and how she took in and accepted that there were vampires. She didn’t just accept in immediately. You could see how she progresses with the idea that there is a vampire and she has to kill them. Also I wish more vampire killing took place, but she was still a newbie at killing vampires, so maybe the 2nd book has more of that stuff. I do recommend you all reading Aurora Sky. It was a good read and you’ll like it, especially if you’re up for some vampire slaying story!

Interesting premise, but the main character was too whiney and unsympathetic, and the story too predictable. Just didn't do it for me.

Aurora Sky's life hasn't been the best an eighteen year old could have. The people who she thought were her friends aren't actually her friends at all. She hasn't even had her first kiss, but everything will change when she is killed in an accident. The government has been looking for people with special blood and when they find a dead Aurora, they will do everything in their power to save her. But saving her might just do more damage than good. When Aurora finds that the price for her being brought back was to kill the living dead, she becomes conflicted. After she learns of her fate, she decides to make a resolution. When she meets Fane, she is instantly drawn to his bad boy demeanor. Will Aurora survive all of the tests and killing? Who can she trust? Why was she saved? This was a GREAT book!! The book had a good plot with conflicts and twists. It only took me two hours to finish this book, because I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. The reason this book is labeled a four-star is because it is NA. I wasn't aware that it was NA until I started reading it. I wouldn't recommend this to teens. It has the F-word a lot and it has a sex scene. The scene isn't very detailed, but it isn't recommended for teen viewers. I would consider this for YA readers, but be warned. If I didn't just review clean teen/ YA books this would be five-stars. It was a GREAT book that ended on a huge cliff-hanger. Great job, Nikki Jefford!

Aurora is in HS and was already accepted to Notre Dame and only six months until graduation. Aurora could not wait to star life in college. Aurora was in a car crash and when she woke up she was at Elmendorf A F base.There was agent Melcher with her when she woke up. Aurora was told she was at the base because she had special blood. She had been at the base for two weeks in a medically induced coma. Then her mother told Aurora she could take her home in one week. Agent Melcher brought in Agent Crist with him. They told Aurora had been revived and that she had a chance to serve her country as well as mankind. She was a deadly force against demon beings. Aurora’s blood is toxic to vampires and she is expected to become a vampire hunter. Surprisingly enough Fane starts to take interest in Aurora once she is back in school and there is chemistry between the two. I really liked this story alot. But i will never give a story I rate a five when it ends in a cliffhanger and this one did so no five. Anyway vampires made by science and different kinds of vampires very interesting and definitely different and I liked that. The story grabbed me right from the start. I hope I get to read the second part of this I was so disappointed to find this a cliffhanger. I didn’t particularly care for the agents but I guess that is how they were suppose to act. I loved Dante and how he handled things and just the way he was. Dane well he was Dane but I did like the gradual build up between him and Aurora. I would have liked a bit more action in this story. I did love the twists and turns of this story and the ones Aurora went through. I recommend. I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.

Wow, what a fantastic story, Although Aurora's Transition to vampire hunter is not through her choosing, she soon realises that sometimes you just have to do what needs to be done when faced with that level of evil. But life isn't that straight forward and as with humans, there are good and bad vamps, what's a hunter to do ? A love interest in the form of Fane brings an interesting twist to the mix especially as he's a vampire and just how will he react when he finds out that Aurora is tasked with killing his kind ? Like her life needs to get anymore complicated right ! The characters are great and instantly likeable, well, most of them and with an interesting plot which has a good mix of action, tension and excitement this story had me hooked instantly. I can't wait to start the next book.

I really enjoyed this book, finished it in one sitting! I haven't read a YA book in quite a while, it was refreshing to read a book that didn't have sex in every chapter, which seems to be the new trend in adult books... It's nice to see an author with an original idea; Or at least a different twist on one. As the story progresses you see the characters develop and flourish. There isn't an over abundance of detail, but just enough to paint the picture and let your mind do the rest. The book is filled with a mix of humor, sarcasm, action, danger and even a little romance. Add in obstacles like dysfunctional families and friends, sketchy government agents, Frankenstein-like experiments, vampires, hunters, and of course teenage lust - and you've got the makings of a great series! I also really liked the setting. Alaska isn't a place I read about in books too often. I can't wait to start the second book in the series! (mostly because of the crazy ending to this one... I must know what happens next!)

“Aurora Sky” by Nikki Jefford is about a teenager who awakes after a life threaten car accident and finds she is now a vampire hunter working for the government. She’s allowed to live a “normal” life within limits until they need her for missions. Aurora becomes involved with Fane, the “bad-boy” of the school. She also meets Dante – her super-hot vampire hunter mentor! I enjoyed getting to know Fane more and realizing there is more to him than meets the eye. Dante reminds me of your older brother’s hot best friend. He’s as great partner for Aurora and can’t wait to see what happens with their partnership. As a reader you get caught up in Aurora’s story as she deals with the drastic changes of her life. Everything has changed since her accident, her friends, her college plans, and her personal life. I enjoyed this book very much and look forward to the adventures Aurora will go on in the next book. If you enjoy vampire books you will enjoy this one!!

Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter by Nikki Jefford is a the first volume in a series by the same name about a young adult who abruptly becomes drafted by a secret government agency fighting vampires when she almost dies in a car crash. Quickly, Aurora must learn how to deal with her feelings about her near death experience and balance a new life that involves normal high school and secretly fighting vampires. I really enjoyed this novel. It was a unique take on vampires and a vampire hunting. Vampirism was transformed into a medical condition rather than a random supernatural event that is difficult to explain. And therefore, the vampire hunting was also unique and having to do with their blood type rather than this fighting abilities, which I suppose they have to develop anyway. The government involvement was well done. It would have been nice to know more about it, but the “hush-hush” secret government agency aura was present whenever the agents were around. The vampire hunting was exciting with a lot of action and emotions. Most of the characters were well-developed. Even if a character wasn’t present much in the story, it was possible to imagine that there was more to him or her. The romantic aspect of the story was complicated and believable and I really enjoyed the twist even though I expected it. The one aspect of this novel that I didn’t like was how it felt like the end was so abrupt. As it’s a series I can understand that to some extent, but I wanted more closure. The narration by Em Eldridge was good. I found that Aurora’s voice was a little too whiney for me, but I thought everyone else sounded appropriate. The production quality was good. I would recommend this novel to anyone who likes young adult fiction and a good vampire story with a science fiction twist. There is a lot of action and emotional events and I’m looking forward to the next novels in the series. Audiobook provided for review by the author.

This book is not bad. The writing seems lacking at times and I noticed several typos. There is not much descriptive writing and there seems to be a disconnect between the characters and reader, in my opinion. Overall, the storyline is interesting and shows promise.

I didnt even read the whole book! I stoped at the sex sceans i never knew were there. GROSS YOU DONT HAVE TO PUT IT IN DETAIL! IM NOT EVEN A TEEN YET! I didnt know this was in the book but i was board weather it was in or not. The story line was crap. How does the government influence your mother that vamps are real and your daughter must kill them or els. Seriously. And what kind of mother would let strangers inject multiple viruses into her childs body with a 55% chance it wwould kill her. STUPID? IN FACT THE ONLY RWASON I KEPT READING WAS BECAUSE FANE WAS INTERESTING! I DIDNT EVEN LIKE THE MAIN CHARECTER! Overall this book was craap dont waste your time. If you enjoy vamp romance i highly recomend THE EMERALD TAILSMAN? NO SEX OR CURSING AND IS GOOD FOR AGES 12 AND UP. REPEAT! DONT READ THIS BOOK! ITS CRAP!!!!!!

This is the first of Jefford’s books that I’ve read, but I’ve known about her work for quite some time. Now, with this one under my belt, I’m not going to put off the rest for as long. This was a great start to what seems like an addicting series, and it seems I have some catching up to do with yet another book coming out soon. I really enjoyed Aurora Sky, even if I had some issues with it, which I’ll get to. The big picture was great and I think the story was paced well to keep me hooked and moving forward. I think Jefford’s developed some enjoyable main characters and at times it felt like I was really in the cold, barren setting of Alaska. I also thought the premise was a great one. (I’m not giving much away, this is mainly in the book’s description) The government has a “secret” vampire hunter department and Aurora is forced into it. I say forced because she doesn’t have much choice since they spent a lot of resources on keeping her alive after her car accident. This leads me to one issue: the government agents don’t train Aurora, but throw her out in the field hoping she’ll land on her feet. She’s a dull teenager before all this and is only taking kickboxing classes after school for a few weeks. I felt that if these agents were trying to rid of the world of bad vampires, they’d take the time to really train their hunters and communicate with them better on what their job is. There was also a “big reveal” that I saw from very early on, which Aurora was oblivious to. It also supports my questioning of the agents’ training methods. Yet, despite all of this, I don’t feel it dampened my enjoyment of the book that much. It was easy to gloss over it and let the story grab me. I think it will be a great series after this, and more will be developed in terms of building this “underground” vampire/government world, and also the characters will have some room to grow and I’m sure many more great characters will show up along the way. It was a quick, fun read and I don’t read too many vampire books. I’m going to have to start the author’s Spellbound series soon as well to see what that series has in store for me.
