Friday Reads: Review of Northern Bites by Nikki Jefford!

This week's Friday Reads is a review for a very recently discovered vampire series with enough different characteristics that I'm really enjoying reading!

Northern Bites (Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter, #2)Northern Bites by Nikki Jefford

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Northern Bites is the second book in the Aurora Sky series and I got it from the author in exchange for an honest review, since I was part of the Blog Tour.

Northern Bites starts pretty much where we are left at the end of Aurora Sky and dealing with all the changes that Aurora has to deal with. New high school, her relationship with Fane broken and recovering from a rather gruesome battle.

One of the agents has been killed and Aurora is paired with Valerie and the Agency's recruiter, a very creepy guy called Jared, to hunt down the vampires responsible for it. Things won't be easy for Aurora working with a creep and her nemesis, and she'll discover quite a few unexpected truths about the Agency and herself.

Aurora has definitely grown during book 1 and she continues to do so in book 2, and thankfully she stopped annoying me almost completely. She was dealing pretty well with all the things she kept on getting thrown at her, even with the usual lack of information the Agency gave her for her missions. She even manages to find some sort of truce to work with Valerie, despite their differences. She still acts a lil stupidly on occasion, but hey she's still a teenager.

There's plenty of action with loads of revelations and even some unexpected betrayals (or are they really?). I love how Aurora keeps on wondering to what extent she's a vampire and what is the serum really doing to her and if it might not be malfunctioning. We also get quite a bit of family time with her mom and we meet her grandma, a very quirky and bossy old lady.

The romance is obviously still present, and it seems to be turning a bit more into a love triangle with Fane and Dante. But neither angle is really resolved here, since Aurora seems to be a bit more attracted to Dante than in book 1, but she still has feelings for Fane, though the situation there is more than complicated! I think so far I'm still shipping Aurora and Fane and I'm not being annoyed about the love triangle, since it's more background than foreground.

The book doesn't end in an obvious cliffhanger, but we're left with quite a good number of unresolved issues and Aurora in a position she really wasn't expecting to be. I'm quite looking forward to see how the next book will play out!

With a less annoying Aurora and the stakes getting a little higher, this one was a super fast read and I'm debating between 3.5 and 4 stars!
