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.
(Mature YA, new adult series that becomes progressively more mature. Underage drinking, sexual situations, mild language and blood sucking.)
I really enjoyed this book, finished it in one sitting!
I haven't read a YA book in quite a while, it was refreshing to read a book that didn't have sex in every chapter, which seems to be the new trend in adult books...
It's nice to see an author with an original idea; Or at least a different twist on one.
As the story progresses you see the characters develop and flourish. There isn't an over abundance of detail, but just enough to paint the picture and let your mind do the rest. The book is filled with a mix of humor, sarcasm, action, danger and even a little romance.
Add in obstacles like dysfunctional families and friends, sketchy government agents, Frankenstein-like experiments, vampires, hunters, and of course teenage lust - and you've got the makings of a great series!
I also really liked the setting. Alaska isn't a place I read about in books too often.
I can't wait to start the second book in the series! (mostly because of the crazy ending to this one... I must know what happens next!)
