Stakeout by Nikki Jefford
(Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter #2.5)
Publication date: January 14th 2014
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy

Noel Harper got a second chance at life when the government recruited her as an undercover vampire informant. Since the day they brought her back from the good-as-dead, she has wanted to prove herself worthy.

When a member of her investigative unit is murdered, Noel is paired up with a vampire hunter named Dante to spy on a suspect in Fairbanks. The problem? They’re not the only ones on stakeout. Taking down murderous vampires is one thing. Dealing with the past is another. But this time, Noel isn’t letting fear win. She’s calling in help from the other side and learns a shocking secret along the way.

(STAKEOUT is an Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter novella told from Noel Harper’s POV. Approximately 40,000 words.)

Get the Book

So I admit I was totally leary of reading Stakeout. Not because I don’t like the series because I love it, and Nikki Jefford’s writing but I was just so pissed off at Noel at the end of Northern Bites. I womaned up though and decided to hear her side of the story.

This book is 2.5 but it actually takes place during Northern Bites it’s just Noel’s pov. I really liked seeing her side of the story. I wouldn’t mind having future books being written in both her and Aurora’s povs because she bring something different to the story. Just as much as Valerie does even though I hate to say that. So there is some overlapping but since Dante and Noel were on different missions then Aurora it’s not the same thing over again. We get some new information that is definitely important so you definitely need to read this.

Noel is a pretty tough little chica. I loved that she has some definite sauciness about her but not in the annoying way Valerie does. We get to know more of Noel’s background and why she ended up in the government program. It’s actually pretty crazy and creepy. I also wanted to smack her roommate Trudy. How was that girl so dense. I really liked Noel and the fact that she wasn’t as gothy as she seemed. I also liked that she had a crush on Gavin. I’m not sure but it made her seem more teenagery and not so cold. Gave her more heart.

I think Dante found his way back onto my bad side after reading this. Although he can pretty funny at times he is also frustrating too. Reckless and doesn’t really think about Vampires as more than just monsters. Oh Dante you're so crazy.

Since this a novella it’s short and a quick read. I loved the story though and getting to know Noel. It’s definitely an awesome addition to the series. I can’t wait for Evil Red.

My Song Choice

Okay so I'm not sure why this song reminds me of Noelle but it did for some reason. Especially with Gavin.
