Synopsis (from Goodreads): Life on the run is no winter picnic, especially when Aurora’s partner sees himself as the sheriff, not the outlaw. It’s a cat and mouse game across the Last Frontier with agents and vampires out for revenge. Aurora has never fought so hard to stay alive, even as each day takes her further away from Fane. Will they ever be reunited? Or is Aurora destined to remain in Alaska with Dante forever?

Whiteout is the 5th book of the Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter series and should not be read as a standalone. The plot relies heavily on events in the past books as well as revolving around already established characters. This review may contain spoilers for the previous books in the series. 

This series! There is just something about it that completely draws the reader in and has certainly left me feeling a bit addicted! The characters make mistakes and have to deal with them, the plot is gritty and in places a little dark, and it just all works together to form a book where you're not too sure quite how things will work out in the end. 

Aurora's love life seemed to finally work itself out, even if there was very little doubt about which way she'd go at the end of Hunting Season. Of the two guys the one that I've preferred from the beginning (because lets face it there's always one!) grew on me even more whereas the other one just grated on me more than he had before. Sorry avoiding names for spoiler reasons! 

There was plenty of action in this book and Aurora once again proved that she didn't need anyone there to protect her, she was fully able to protect herself. On top of that she seemed to be coming to terms with her new status as a vampire and gave Dante a couple of stern talking tos on the subject! 

I missed Noel though! But it did get made up for slightly by Fane's POV (though the book was mostly from Aurora's POV) and the introduction of his fantastic cousin! The cast was definitely small in this book though! 

I got taken by surprise by this book a couple of times and I was on the edge of my seat. Definitely a great read!
