Product Description

If there is one thing eighteen-year-old Aurora Sky wants, it's to get off the iceberg she calls home. 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.
 
Aurora finds her new life is more dangerous than she ever dreamed, especially when she becomes a target for revenge.
 
Now Aurora's stuck with an overzealous partner, a group of misfit friends, and a maddening attraction to a rebellious man keeping secrets of his own.

*This book was received via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*

I really loved this book. The main character Aurora is one of the most kick-ass and strong female characters I have ever read about. The story behind the creation of vampires and the version of vampires presented in the book are extremely intriguing. I can't wait to read the next installment and find out more about the vampires but also Aurora's adventures.

This is a great read for fans of the vampire genre. What stood out the most was the location; Alaska is so cold and dark and a perfect metaphor for a different kind of coldness, and darkness, in the story. I like Aurora, and Fane. I like the world building and the mythology. I loved the vampires at the party, they were kind of playboys in the sense they were like sexy men anywhere but also potentially extremely dangerous, being immortals. (Strangely enough, I really liked Joss!) Aurora's conscription was chilling, with the lack of freedom it entailed. Definitely a fun series to check out.

2.0 out of 5 stars I can see other people enjoying this book, but it wasn't for me 11 June 2014
By Michelle@Book Briefs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter seemed like it was a unique take on a vampire story. Aurora Sky is a senior at a high school in Alaska, and she can't wait to get out of town. But before any of that can happen she is swept away by some government agents. Apparently, her blood is toxic to vampires. The premise had so much promise and I can see a lot of people easily enjoying this series. It is a classic young adult paranormal vampire tale. Sadly, the story didn't capture my attention and the characters fell a bit flat for me.

Initially, I really felt for Aurora. My heart really went out to her. She had a hard shake of it at the beginning, but then the more and more she started opening her mouth , the more she started to annoy me. I liked her sense of humor. She was funny, but she was also petulant and immature. I just couldn't connect with her. But at least I liked her more than Fane. I get the appeal of a bad boy, and even more so as a brooding dark and stormy vampire, but Fane just seemed...mean. Again, I think I might be in the minority of this one. I can see him as a guy that people will love, he just isn't my particular taste for a book boyfriend.

The plot of Aurora Sky was a bigger hit with me than the characters, but most of the time it felt blah to me. I wasn't engaged in the story. I liked it, but there were a couple of times that I had to force myself to keep reading. The start of the book was confusing and I didn't know everything that was going on, but because I wasn't as invested in the book, I found myself just not caring as much. The Vampire Hunter series has potential, and I can see lots of teens loving it, but it wasn't the book for me. I don't think I will be continuing this series, but if you love young adult vampire paranormals, you should still give it a try.
4.0 out of 5 stars Unusual idea 13 October 2016

Three and a half from me
This has been a book I've seen recommended a lot so I'm glad I finally found the time to begin this series. I'd thought it was aimed at a younger audience with its teenage heroine Aurora, but actually there's content here that does have more adult tones.
Essentially Aurora is one of the very few that have a rare blood type and with a bit of scientific jiggling her blood can be poisonous to vampires. Now that was an angle I hadn't seen before so I was very interested to see how far this storyline could go. Aurora is sent back to school to await her first assignment as a vampire hunter but all is not exactly going according to plan. This good girl resents the changes thrust upon her and a new belligerent Aurora starts walking the halls. Suddenly those who previously didn't really see Aurora start to take notice of her as she steps out of her previously light world and into a much darker reality.
I liked the ideas behind this and it was fun seeing Alaska used as a setting. The concept of the types of vampires and how hunters could work amongst them just didn't quite gel with me though. A lot of this story is based around Aurora and her changes at school which brings me to supporting characters . There's smarmy agents, catty school friends and of course nasty and perhaps even nice vampires! Two male characters stood out so I'm guessing the author intends to (hopefully) flesh them out but if honest I struggled to like Aurora. I did sympathise with her admittedly but her attitude truly sucked! Not snarky just snotty, childish at times and so reckless I wanted to shake her. If you enjoy vampire stories it's worth a shot but for this reader it's a little disappointing but as the first in the series I'm hoping it will improve

5.0 out of 5 stars Rich, gritty, and extremely hard to put down. Aurora is the new Buffy. 3 June 2015
By mermaid - Published on Amazon.com

Honestly, I did not expect to love this series anywhere near the level that I have. I expected a very typical vampire tale but was pleasantly surprised.

Aurora is, as you would guess, a vampire hunter. The first novel is essentially the story of how this about and her first experiences with the walking undead. My initial reaction was, "Yes! A Vamp novel that doesn't just swoon over vampires!", which is only partially true- but nonetheless, I really like how this series handles vampires. They are not overly glamorized, sparkly, or *always* sexy. Vampires in Aurora's world can be pretty darn scary and they come in a variety of flavors. The premise is essentially that vampires are all AB Negative blood types that have contracted a fatal disease and died, but due to their rare blood type, they turn into vampires at the point of death rather than corpses. Vampire Hunters are born of the same blood and diseases; they are lab created by injecting all the various fatal diseases a vampire might encounter into the AB negative subject. The hunter's blood then becomes instant poison to any vampire who drinks it, thus making them easier to kill. But, of course, there are a few catches to this new life.

Aurora is relate-able and while I feel bad for her during many turns of the story, I also definitely *get* her and the reactions she has to events in the story. Sometimes you want to slap her, but that is a sign of good character development in my eyes. A character should never bee 100% likeable, or you just have a Mary Sue living out a fantasy of the author. The closest thing I could compare Aurora to is Buffy (the Vampire Slayer) as she is spunky, funny, and fairly badass... though (much) less annoying. Plus the vampires range from mega scary to pretty hot, so definitely some similarities.
But I digress. The other characters are well thought out, and as the series progresses, definitely develop a lot more. I can see why Fane has so many readers swooning, though he doesn't do a whole lot for me personally. I feel he is the most predictable character and part of the story from the moment he appears, but having my suspicions confirmed does not negate the enjoyment of reading.

The plot is rich, gritty, and interesting, I could not put my kindle down- and I bought the 2nd book within 10 minutes of finishing this one. It is honestly *that* good. If you enjoy this book, ABSOLUTELY buy the next one, I devoured it in one day.
5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! 20 June 2016
By Angel Bunny - Published on Amazon.com

What I love about this book is the whole rare blood type angle. In this book, a person with a certain rare blood type can be injected with a certain drug cocktail that will temporally paralyze any vampire that drinks from the infect person. The book also talks about how the vampires are products of humans who had a certain blood type and died from a sickness and in return came back alive as vampires, or they were bitten by another vampire. This is a take on vampires that I have never experienced before, which makes it all the more interesting. People start getting boring with a certain book genre if the authors of that genre stick to the same outline. We need new takes on this long loved paranormal genre. Majority of people who enjoy reading love being able to escape their boring, human lives and feel like they are living a more exciting one. So, props to Nikki Jefford for coming up with a unique, interesting take on vampires and vampire hunters.

My love for this series isn’t only because it takes place in the very place I dream to move to, or the new twist on vampires and vampire hunters, but the amazing characters that are in this book. Aurora is a good example of a strong female lead. She isn’t afraid to speak her mind and knows what she wants in life. Dante is such a hilarious and sweet character. If Aurora won’t date him, I surely will. Noel is such a sweet and trustworthy character who would make the best friend in the world. Fane is a very interesting character. He seems to put on the bad boy image, when he is not as bad as he makes himself appear to be. However, he is definitely capable of extreme violence if provoked. Joss is a very interesting character who you might never completely understand. Valeria is an untrustworthy bitti who needs to be put in her place. I love Marcus, he seems to not have a care in the world and appears to be a very sweet guy. Lastly, Agent Melcher. I cannot stand that man! He is so creepy and seems to be out of his mind.

I love this book and recommend it to all who love vampire books. Even if you aren’t a huge fan of vampire books, I still believe you’d fall in love with this one. So go check it out and give the author some love!

5.0 out of 5 stars Vampires, Hunters, Government Agencies, and budding romance...perfect afternoon escape! 20 January 2015

“In the event of a catastrophe, one thing is sure. Your life ends on a curse.” – Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter by Nikki Jefford

Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter is the first book written by Nikki Jefford that I’ve had the pleasure of reading.

I loved it!

Why Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter earns five stars from me?

1. Perfect escapism.
2. I didn’t want to put it down.
3. Light but action packed.
4. Well edited.
5. Fast read.
6. I immediately bought book 2 and 3 and have book 4 on my alert list for March.

Since the main character is eighteen there are some sexual situations, mild cursing, and underage drinking (big thumbs up to the author for mentioning that in her synopsis) so I don't recommend it for younger readers.

The writing is very easy going, which makes for a fast read that you don’t have to think about. Just read, enjoy, and then come back and take care of the laundry.

I’m looking forward to reading more of this series and seeing Aurora balance being a vampire hunter with all the other developments in her "new" life. If you are looking for a story that’s farfetched but well written, one that lets you fall into the rabbit hole of vampires, hunters, government agencies, and budding romance then grab a copy of Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter and enjoy.
