Goodreads Synopsis:
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. And if he’s a vampire, will she be forced to kill him?
My Thoughts on Aurora Sky:
Interesting story but was missing a few things.

The MC, Aurora, I thought would be way more kick-butt than she turned out to be. She whined a lot. Kind of got on my nerves to be honest. Then again her predicament was her mum's fault, but I can sympathize with a mother. What mother wouldn't do everything she could to save her child? We also have a case of bad parents. The dad is never home and when he does finally show up he leaves because he can't deal with Aurora. Um...ok! She gets drunk on New Years and her mum tuck her into bed! I get that she's an adult and was at home the whole time but she's not twenty-one yet! Dante was pretty hilarious. Such a man-child! I would've liked to know a little more about him since he did become her mentor.

There were a few things I wanted to know more about: Her training. Who was helping training her? I mean she couldn't just survive a hand to hand fight with basic kick boxing and karate classes could she? They're vampires. If her mum signed her up for this job how is it that she wasn't told everything? I did like this new vampire twist to the original myth and the very modern way that they go about killing them. Very different (in a good way).

Things that made me laugh: Aurora's New Year Resolutions (when you get to that part you'll laugh!), Fane (his name!), the way she went about to to achieve her resolutions.
Overall, I liked the general idea of the story. I would go back and see if I can answer the issues I mentioned above but I liked it. I would be happy with making her less whiny. As always, with a rating of 3/5 I always suggest you read it for yourself and decide if my review is spot on or not.

*Mature scene: advise that you be 18+ to read Aurora Sky
