blog tour [Review + Giveaway!] Aurora Sky by Nikki Jefford (Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter)

Aurora Sky 
by Nikki Jefford 
(Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter #1)
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy

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.)

I  loved this story and fell in love with all the characters in this book. Especially with Aurora who I couldn't help but feel sorry for her because of the turn her life took. She was a smart mouth at times and could be very sarcastic but she was definitely a kick butt fighter. Then there was the love interest Fane. He was the handsome bad boy, but underneath that rough exterior he was a sweetie pie and I definitely was rooting for them.

Aurora is the typical teen girl, with all the teenage issues that go along with it.  But a car accident changed everything for her.  After dying in the accident the government, with her moms approval, brought her back with the agreement that she would work for them as a vampire hunter. Now most vampire hunter stories consist of the hunter being able to overpower the vampires, but Aurora is different, her blood is a paralytic and instead of fighting and killing the vampires, she lures them into biting her and then the effect of the blood allows her to kill them. YEAH! AWESOME I KNOW!! ;) 

The plot of this book was a great idea and there was a lot of action scenes. The ending was a little abrupt. It wasn't per say a cliff hanger, but abrupt enough so you are ready for the next book. This is a really great read, if you like vampire hunter books. There are lots of twists and turns, horror and action, even some romance. Overall, I enjoyed the book! 

4 HOOTS for Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter

Northern Bites 
by Nikki Jefford 
(Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter #2)
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy

Love bites.
Probation sucks.

Thanks to Dante’s recklessness, Aurora is now partners with Valerie: the redheaded, backstabbing vixen.

Dante is in full flirt mode. Fane’s tactics are more ruthless. Something carnal has awakened in Aurora and neither boy is helping tame her cravings.

When a member of the unit’s team is found dead, Aurora and Valerie are sent after a vampire in Sitka, but Aurora suspects the killer’s much closer to home.

Nikki Jefford is a third generation Alaskan who found paradise in the not-so-tropical San Juan Islands (Wash.) where she is once more neighbors with Canada in a town without a single traffic light. She loves fictional bad boys and heroines who kick butt.

When she's not reading, writing, working, or out on a nature walk, she's out riding her Suzuki DRZ400SM.

This sounds like such an entertaining read with characters you truly get to love! I find too many paranormal books but character development aside in place of more action etc but that just doesn't work for me. I definitely have to check this series out! Wonderful review, Michelle!
