Review: Hunting Season by Nikki Jefford

It’s better to be a hunter, not prey.

Ever since her partner was kidnapped, Aurora Sky has been on a personal mission to get him back. To do that she needs the vampire responsible for destroying her life.

In order to have a snowball’s chance at success, she’ll have to team up with her most loyal friends, including a certain vampire in black with a provoking talent for distraction.

Old cravings aren’t easily quenched, nor past passions.

With knowledge comes danger and Aurora is at risk on all sides

Melanie’s Review

Aurora Sky is done playing games. She is ready to go after Melcher and Jared both. She’s over their hypocritical crap. She’s serious about kicking ass and taking names. Aurora wants to do things her way and she wants them done now. By teaming up with Fane and Noel, she is able to work out a plan to hopefully rescue Dante.


I hadn’t noticed in past books when he has only small parts to play, but in Hunting Season, Dante’s lack of presence rather bummed me out. His sense of humor and loyalty cracks me up so much, it was sad to me that we didn’t have any of that in this book. We do learn a little bit more about Giselle. I’m very intrigued by her story and I would like to know her full story at some point. I feel sorry for her at times. Her hatred of Jared is justified, while his problems with her make him sound like an immature ass.


One thing I could have lived without is Valerie. She does show up, luckily it’s only briefly, but just long enough to ruin people’s day, and to totally ruin important plans with her self absorption. I can’t stand that bitch! She could be a totally cool ass kicking character but instead she’s just a giant spoiled brat. I kind of wish she would either grow up and learn how to get along with her team or go away.


Hunting Season contains Nikki Jefford’s usually snarky sense of humor, which is definitely one of the things I adore about the Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter series. At one point she is talking about sex with vampires and that they don’t get STD’s and she says something I thought was hilarious. Aurora says:


“Don’t take him to bed unless he’s undead.”


Though Aurora is ready to start tearing people apart, she has to do it just the right way. So in order for this happen, Hunting Season is full of all the subplots that have been going on throughout the series. There is more planning and descriptions than actual action, but it very much helps understand everything that is going on. I felt Jefford has set us up for what is still yet to come and I can’t wait!
