The book picks up right where Hunting Season left off, and Aurora, Dante, and Giselle are on the run through the wilds of Alaska. I love Nikki's writing style, which drips with sarcasm (example: "Good ol' Alaska—where guns and ammo could be purchased with less grief than a pack of cigarettes. Residents would sooner accept polygamy than gun control."), and I think Aurora is a kicka$$ heroine who has grown exponentially throughout the series. I found some of the action a little circuitous, but that might be because for a duration of reading, I was mentally screaming, "GET HER TO FANE. WHERE IS FANE?" or, "NO, DO NOT CONTINUE THROUGH THE WILDERNESS! FIND FANE!" I might have been yelling the same thing to Fane during his chapters: "WHY CAN'T YOU FIND AURORA?"
I was also surprised at how much I was annoyed with Dante in this book—like, to the point where I thought, who is this douche? That's a tribute to the writing, though, and shows how good Nikki Jefford is at character development. Dante is definitely struggling to accept his reality and it showed throughout the entire story. I enjoyed learning more about Fane's past and his family, and liked seeing him throw his family name around to get stuff done.
After reading Whiteout, I can safely say two things: I never, ever want to go to Alaska, because I abhor snow and I felt cold for the entire book and, the second thing, I can't wait for the final book and the showdown that I know is coming between our favorite vampires and the agency that created them. I'm dying for Melcher and Jared to go down in flames. They are some of the most despicable characters I've read and I absolutely loathe them (again, great writing) so I am chomping at the bit for their demise!
Knowing that this is the next to last book in the series is sad and downright disheartening, it will be like saying goodbye to a group of VERY good friends, knowing full well that they will be in your thoughts often as situations and people remind you of them, because the TRUTH is, my friends; Nikki Jefford is such a Master of her craft that her characters are REAL PEOPLE in the readers mind—complex and evolved, genuine, fragile, emotive, full of vigor and humanity, the depth of character she builds into the people living in her world, the one she so generously creates and SHARES with us all—you just cannot help but hope for more.
So, Mrs. Author gal? Listen to the words I am whispering into your ear…………..spinoff….Spinoff…SPINoff….SPINOFF!!!!!!! Fane has become SUCH a phenomenal VIP (Vampire of Interest!), you could do tons with him before and after Sky. They could be a great couple to follow around the globe without the Vampire Hunting business………. Dante has TONS of potential, as does the ever-secretive Noel. You don’t HAVE to close out the characters themselves when you close down the Aurora Sky Vampire Hunter series. It could be the Matriarch of a tremendous family of series’ all tying back to the root and they don’t HAVE to be hunters, (well, Dante maybe…lol he IS sort of addicted to the mantra of track, hunt, kill, party, rest, repeat). Noel is interesting enough to tie back to a Coven of Witches, Aurora and Fane-Sky is the limit, James Bond & Q?
WhatEVER you do, I am breathless with anticipation for the next release of the Aurora Sky series, slightly petrified by the thought of it closing out, but ever-eager for the thrill of the ride because I KNOW that you will make it the ride of my lifetime. AFTER the end of the series, I cannot help but turn am eager/wanton eye toward the horizon in quest of your next grand thrill-ride to share with me (well, I suppose you DO let other folks read them to, but it FEELS like you write them just for me!) and I am fully confident that many countless hours of reading and/or listening pleasure will be gifted to me by the gift my LORD granted you when he gave you the heart and soul of not merely a “writer,” but one of the GREATS.
