Vampire Hunter by Nikki Jefford: Spotlight and Review



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.)






--Barnes & Noble  



Aurora Sky is a high school senior with dreams of heading off to college in the lower 48. She loves the beauty of Alaska but wants to escape the intense cold of the climate and the depressing winter darkness.  When a Car accident nearly kills her, she is miraculously brought back from the brink of death when her distraught mother agrees to a secretive government deal.  Aurora awakens to discover her personal dreams shattered because now she will become a Vampire Hunter with an assigned territory in Alaska.  Her new toxic blood makes her immune to the vampire poison, too bad her heart is not as protected.

This engaging book is unusual in that Aurora is a reluctant Vampire slayer.  She is exceptionally angry that her plans and dreams have come crashing down around her.  Her mother bears the brunt of her tantrums.  With her father mostly absent, Aurora’s resentment against her plight simmers just beneath the surface of her snarky, sarcastic exterior. The 2nd book in this series is available and I will be reading it, too, as I believe the world-building begun in this book is fresh and fascinating.

This book was given to me in exchange for my honest review.

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.
