Transfusion (Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter #1)
by Nikki Jefford
YA Paranormal (Note: sexual content)
Published: December 9th 2012
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?

I received a copy of this book for an honest review as part of this blog tour.
MY OVERVIEW: Ok, I will admit that I was a little hesitant about reading this book at first, as I am a big Buffy fan. However, the way both the hunters and the vampires are done in this book is so different that I really enjoyed it. They aren't your typical vampires.
PROS: I felt so bad for Aurora. I wanted to yell at the agents in the book. I would hate to go through what she went through and would probably have the same reaction she did. You can tell that the author spent a lot of time on writing Aurora's character. She is definitely the most well written character in the book. Noel comes in a close second. (Love her!)
CONS: As much as I liked Fane over Dante, he was very cliche. If anyone was shocked at finding out about him, then you need to go out and read more. It was very obvious where the author was taking him. Overall, I think the supporting characters (with the exception of Noel) weren't written as well as they could have been. They needed a little more development.
MY FINAL THOUGHTS: Finally! A book where the character isn't all "loosing my virginity was the best thing ever!" "It was so romantic." It isn't. It is painful and awkward the first time, and the author correctly portrayed it in this book. Transfusion left you hanging and I can't wait to read the next one!
