I know what you're thinking, another teen vampire book? Really? You would be so wrong about Aurora Sky that I don't even know where to start. When is the last time you read a story about a teenage girl who is a little on the shy side that gets into a horrible accident and comes out on the other side working for the government as a life size chew toy for vampires? Never. Turns out that Aurora's blood is actually a sedative to vampires and temporarily paralyzes them so that the government can move in and take them out. That's a pretty interesting twist to a girl who is about to graduate high school and has never even been kissed before. This girl goes from boring and predictable to bad ass pretty quickly and I loved every second of it.
First of all, this book is packed with everything you possibly could imagine. From teenage drama to boyfriends all the way to secret agents and psychotic vampires, I was literally enthralled with it so much I finished the book in two days....and that's only because I had to sleep in between. There is so much going on that I felt it was nice breaks to go from the training and missions with Dante back to normal high school things with friends and love interests that it broke the book up nicely and made it seem real instead of crazy fantasy. It also grounded Aurora and made her seem real for me. She wasn't some G.I Jane military chick or a Bella from Twilight type that was too weak and needy. Aurora was what you would expect a teenager to be in the situations she was placed in, sometimes she made mistakes but she learned from them. She really grew from beginning to end and that's what counted in my opinion.
The ending made me want to throw the book across the room because it left me wanting to read the second book RIGHT NOW! I didn't, because it was on my nook and that would have ended badly for me, but you get my point. I really loved the uniqueness of Aurora Sky mixed with the fun and witty characters that it had within its' pages. If you enjoy a great vampire story but are looking for something new and refreshing, you have definitely come to the right place!
