The world of Aurora Sky is all about high school, boys and mean girls until a near fatal accident changes everything in her life. Now she is tangled in a web of intrigue with government agents and vampires.
In exchange for saving her life, a clandestine government agency trains Aurora to kill vampires. As it turns out, Aurora’s blood is debilitating to vampires. It renders them easy to kill after they bite Aurora. Author, Nikki Jefford’s vampires don’t have the gravitas of vampires we have come to expect in our urban fantasy novels. The Vampires in the Aurora Sky novels are basically just self-indulgent, spoiled, fang-less humans who need to drink blood and live long lives. They don’t have the air of a supernatural predator the way vampires in other author’s stories have. The fact that they need to use guns and baseball bats fundamentally reduces any supernatural villain mystique they may have had. For me, this takes away from all the Aurora Sky novels. The books are just not compelling reads/listens. Nikki Jefford is a very competent writer. I would definitely try another book by her, but her Aurora Sky novels are books I can take or leave without caring one way or the other. It’s just very disappointing when you title your book, “Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter,” then fail to give me even a little bit of kick-ass action between vampire hunter and vampires. I personally don’t need soap opera and mean girls that are actually more scary than the vampires.
Overall, the Aurora Sky novels are well written, but all of them still miss the mark, by a narrow margin. Finally, this audio book was provided by the author at no cost in exchange for an honest review, courtesy of Audio Book Boom.

Unique take on vampire & vampire hunters. I enjoyed all three books. I'm looking forward to reading more books about Aurora Sky.
The narrator did a great job bringing the story to life. This is a story I would no mind listening to it again.
The third book concludes with a cliffhanger. I'm continuing with this series and hoping the next books will be just as good as the first three.

story is good but can be slow in places and tends to drag. characters are believable.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There were moments I found very suspenseful and exciting. I also enjoyed the humour in the story as there was quite a lot of banter between the characters. Dante meeting Aurora's grandmother was also a cute and humorous scene.
Any additional comments?
I really enjoyed this series. The story lines are exciting and the romantic entanglements of the characters kept me entertained along with their vampire hunting escapades.
I loved Dante in the novel and I'd probably prefer to see Aurora want to be with him. The story ends in a little bit of a cliffhanger and I can't wait to find out what happens next.
