Aurora Sky Blog Tour + Giveaways!

Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter by Nikki Jefford
Series: Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter #1
Publication: December 9th 2012
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?


Nikki Jefford is a third generation Alaskan who loves fictional bad boys and heroines who kick butt. She is the author of the Spellbound Trilogy and upcoming Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter series. Nikki married Sebastien, the love of her life, while working as a teaching assistant in France. They now reside in the not-so-tropical San Juan Islands, 70 miles northeast of Forks, Washington.

My 2 cents
My rating: 3.5 stars

I really liked the basic story concept of the story.  Vampires come from people who have AB negative blood, but have also contracted horrible diseases.  These diseases at as a catalyst in the blood, suspending the person into an undead status   What is really creepy about this is that I have AB negative blood!  

So Aurora is in a horrible car accident where she almost dies.  The government saves her, and injects this "formula" into her blood, which makes her lethal to vampires.  Its a very different concept, and I liked the science behind it.  I had trouble with trying to understand how exactly she is NOT a vampire, though.  The book makes is pretty clear that she has the same blood as the vamps, but this "formula" counteracts the vampirism.  I just didn't really get it, I guess! 

Parts of the story got a little graphic and gross as well.   There was lots of action, which I loved, and plenty of teen romance.  The romantic aspects were a little strange though.  We get a big twist towards the end regarding Fane and Aurora, although I was able to figure it out ahead of time.  It left things nice and open for the next book!

The characters were very real to me.  I really enjoyed Aurora as a MC, and also Fane and Noel.  The agents were not that well developed, and the actual program and the base gave me the heebie jeebies!  Aurora's parents were just AWFUL!   That poor, poor girl!

And now, for the giveaways!
