Thanks to Dante’s recklessness, Aurora is now partners with Valerie: the redheaded, backstabbing vixen.
Dante is in full flirt mode. Fane’s tactics are more ruthless. Something carnal has awakened in Aurora and neither boy is helping tame her cravings.
When a member of the unit’s team is found dead, Aurora and Valerie are sent after a vampire in Sitka, but Aurora suspects the killer’s much closer to home.”
Northern Bites is the second installation in the Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter series by Nikki Jefford. Northern Bites takes two weeks after the first book ends. This sequel is actually great in my opinion. So much happens! And much like the first volume of the story, Northern Bites was a quick read for me. About 3 hours, tops.
In Northern Bites, I wasn’t sure about what was going to happen. I didn’t even read the synopsis before reading the book. Much like the last book, there’s a lot of action that Aurora is involved in.
Much like normal books that are sequels, there are parts when Aurora recaps what happened in the last book. What I like about these recaps though is that Aurora doesn’t drone on and on about what had happened. At most there are only single paragraphs at a time. The story will then move on, and when something happens that’s relevant to the last book Aurora will only say a little about what happened. I actually really like that. How Jefford wrote that makes it bearable to marathon the books.
Aurora is in many head spaces in the duration of the story. She feels really guilty, she gets mad, she gets scared, she gets terrified. Emotions are running high. Trust gets broken on all sides, and new relationships form. Aurora also gets close to both boys, but gets pushed away from one of them. Both physically, and emotionally.
As like the first volume to this series, the story is practically the same. Someone tries to kill Aurora, they almost succeed. But Aurora manages to either escape or she kills them, blahblahblah.
I actually enjoyed reading Northern Bites though. I found that it’s a great edition to the story, and I can’t wait to get my hands on the other books!
Thank you for reading!
