From the author—
Ever since her partner was kidnapped, Aurora Sky has been on a personal mission to get him back. To do that she needs the vampire responsible for destroying her life.
In order to have a snowball’s chance at success, she’ll have to team up with her most loyal friends—including a certain vampire in black with a provoking talent for distraction.
Old cravings aren’t easily quenched, nor past passions. With knowledge comes danger and Aurora is at risk on all sides.
A new Aurora Sky book is always cause for celebration to my way of thinking and Hunting Season surely is everything I hoped for. Getting to spend more time with Aurora and the gang is like spending time with old friends you haven’t seen in a while.
The scrumptious Dante has fallen into some dastardly clutches and it’s up to Aurora and her pals, vampire or otherwise, to figure out how to rescue him. That’s not the only thing going on, though; now that Aurora knows she’s more than just your typical vampire hunter, i.e., she’s a vampire herself, she’s begun to question the motives of the federal agents who recruited her.
Nikki Jefford has a sure hand with the creation and development of plot but it’s her characters who really shine, who come to life on the page. Aurora has grown from a fairly clueless high schooler to a kickbutt vampire hunter who can kill the quarry with little remorse but who values her family and friends with a passion that doesn’t quit. Her close friend, Noel, is every bit as vibrant as Aurora and the two main dudes in their circle, Dante and Fane, appeal to me as much as any fictional fellows I can think of. Even the bad guys, be they vampire or human, stand out and claim their territory.
Aurora struggles with how her life as an undead is going to play out but the betrayal she feels with each new thing she learns about the agency is paramount. She will take them down one way or another but, for right now, she’s on the run with a heartbroken Dante and everyone they care about is in danger.
Waiting for the next book is going to be endless, I think 😉
