Melanie’s Review

 

Evil Red is a novelette in Nikki Jefford’s world of Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter series. It tells the story of Valerie, the red haired, mean spirited chick who seems to have the worst attitude on the planet.

 

Valerie is just a flat out bitch to pretty much everyone. She’s a beauty from the outside, but quite ugly on the inside. She’s really someone I would like to punch in the face if I had the opportunity. I have been watching throughout the series for a redeeming quality in her personality, but have yet to find anything I like about her thus far. Valerie has the diva attitude down pat.

 

In Evil Red we learn Valerie’s back story. We learn where she came from and what kind of life she lived before she moved to Alaska. We learn what sorts of things caused her to grow into the hateful woman she is today. This chick has “Lifetime Movie” written all over her, only without the warm fuzzies that you usually find somewhere in those movies.

 

Evil Red gives the reader really good insight into the beginning of her relationship with Fane and why she is so possessive of him when Aurora shows up.

 

I really like this series in general, and Evil Red just gives the series a little bit more depth by showing us more about Valerie. It almost makes you feel sorry for her for a minute, until you remember who you are reading about!

 

I would recommend  Evil Red to anyone reading the Aurora Sky Vampire Hunter series. It was a quick and easy read that left me feeling as though I had learned a little bit more about what makes one of the main characters in the series tick.

  1. I had to laugh when I read my content editors comment in the margin of Hunting Season (Aurora Sky #4). Of Valerie she wrote: “Please kill her!”

    Ha,ha. I keep trying, but she keeps clawing her way back in!
