Publisher's Summary

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 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.
(Mature YA/New Adult. Contains mild language, violence, sexual situations...and blood sucking.)

I really enjoyed this book

Where does Aurora Sky rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I really liked Em Eldridge as a narrator. She brought life to the story which is important with paranormal books to me.


Which character – as performed by Em Eldridge – was your favorite?

I liked all the characters she did. I felt she performed really well with the male voices


Any additional comments?

I liked this book. It was just the right length and I enjoyed the time spent. It ends on a cliffhanger but I'm excited to listen to the next book.

New Twist on Vapire Sci-Fi

This is not just your standard True Blood or Twilight-type vampire story. I thought there was an interesting twist in this one, despite being another vampire love story with a female main character. It wasn't the best story I've ever listened to, but it was good enough that I will probably continue with the rest of the series when it is available.

Aurora, the main character, is involved in a near fatal accident that nearly kills her. She discovers that a secret government agency offers to save her (with millions of dollars in treatments) in exchange for her continued service to the country by hunting and killing vampires. Her mother accepts, essentially leaving her indebted for the rest of her life.
Aurora's is told that her rare blood type allows her to carry the vampire virus with significant modifications that make her a weapon against vampires. When they drink her weaponized blood, they are temporarily incapacitated allowing her to kill them. The down side is that she could turn into a vampire if she doesn't receive periodic injections.
She is forced to kill a zombie-like, violent vampire during her agency initiation, but she soon discovers that not all vampires are alike. The boy she has long had a crush on, who is finally showing an interest in her, turns out to be a vampire himself. How can she possibly kill him when he is nothing like the violent killer he is supposed to be?

Narration was pretty good in this book. Overall I give it 4 stars and will probably continue with the series.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.
