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!
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.
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.
