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 blood while Fane searches desperately to find Aurora before rogue vampires do.
The hunters have become the hunted. And the road to freedom has never felt more uncertain.

"what in the world"
This one e was horrible! The story went nowhere it was just a lot of fluff. and who was the male narrator he messed up the whole story. I will not be reading the next book.
"PRETTY GOOD...BUT LEAST FAVE OF THE SERIES SO FAR!"
I think it always is!
When Fane finds Aurora!
I liked the narration..they bring the story to life!
I could have,but it only got really good the last couple of hours of the book...
I was super excited to listen to this, and was happy when I saw it finally was available! This story continues where book 4 left off...Dante, Aurora, and Giselle are on the run...thinking the agency was after them...and of course Fane is looking for Jos and Aurora...This book was a lot of them running and hiding, and Dante was kind of being a jerk...I have pretty much lost my like for Dante...I was a little bored at times....but all and all it was a good story...and I cant wait for #6!
"Added a POV"
Whiteout by Nikki Jefford is the fifth novel in a series called Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter. Aurora Sky, her somewhat partner Dante, and an icy foe-turned-ally vampire Giselle are on the run in frozen Alaska. After getting away from a dangerous enemy vampire and uncovering that the clandestine agency that Dante and Aurora work for is corrupt, they fled, unsure of who was on their side. Dante wants to clean the agency of it corruption, while Giselle only wants to destroy her enemy. And Aurora is stuck between her two companions, while only wanting only to return to the man she loves. They travel the remote and frozen lands of Alaska attempting to formulate a plan and figure out a way to outsmart their enemies.
As this is the fifth novel in a series, I think any reader needs to read the previous books in the series for the plot to make sense. There was not much recap and I imagine a newcomer to the series would be confused, even with some of the details that are interspersed throughout the novel. I personally liked this novel less than the preceding ones. However, there were definitely positive aspects. Ultimately, in this novel Aurora is coming into her own as her post-hunter self. Also, Aurora’s and Fane’s relationship is finally clarified to the satisfaction of the reader. One aspect of this novel that is different from the previous novels is the added Fane’s point of view sections as he looks for Aurora. It was really interesting to see how he thinks. However, I struggled with the focus of the novel, I felt that the characters had a mission, but they kept getting side tracked with other vampires. A testament to the author is that these side tracks were ultimately moving the plot forward and contributed to the end of the novel seamlessly. But they weren’t presented as the main objective in the novel, which made them frustrating. I also didn’t like the dynamic between Aurora and Dante in this novel. The reader heard a lot of Aurora’s irritation toward Dante, but she rarely relayed that to Dante. This made it seem like she wasn’t standing up for herself at all. This might have been present previously, but because their relationship was such a major part of the story, it stuck out.
The narration by Em Eldridge was great as usual. There were fewer characters that she had to voice, but she was consistent with each character and consistent with their voices from the previous novel. Sean Peck narrated Fane’s point of view and did a great job as well. The voices were rougher than I heard through Em Eldridge’s narration, but this was easy to overcome. The production quality was good as well. I would recommend this novel to anyone who likes young adult paranormal vampire stories with a unique premise.

"A bit of "YES!' and bit of 'Oh God NO!'"
The further through a series you get the harder it is to write a decent review without giving away what happens. This is why I find myself saying things like "If you liked the first four books you'll like this one too", which is true in my opinion but is probably not very helpful but about all I can offer without being so vague it's annoying or making my review a spoiler.
Em's narration is as consistent and awesome as always, her characters voices have remained the same through all of the books and there's no change to that in this one.
Sean's narration is a bit jarring at first because I was so used to listening to Em. He has a nice voice but his female voices aren't very convincing.
The voices Sean uses for the characters are so different to the ones Em uses that you really have to pay attention to who is talking during the sections Sean does, but I'm not sure there's anything either of them could do about that.
"love the Aurora Sky series"
another great book, can't wait to get to the next one! I love this writing and story. the narrating was excellent as always!
"Better have your inhaler handy for this breath stealing read!"
Although I have to be completely honest and admit I am not the biggest fan of the male narrator on this one, it didn't stop me from loving this book. Jefford has given us another action packed Aurora novel with all the vampire Hunter goodness we've come to expect. I kept staying up way too late laying in bed listening to this one because it seemed as if a new wrench was thrown at Dante and Raven in every chapter. September can't get here soon enough I may have to jump the gun and read the final ebook first!! 4.5 stars
I would listen to it again
The story line was good and so was the narration. Perfect match!
I like hardcore Vampire romance. Loved the characters but Aurora needs more love'n
This is a great book; this is the fifth book in the Vampire Hunter series written by Nikki Jefford and narrated by Em Eldridge and Sean Peck. This book can be listened to in one sitting if you have the time, once I started listening to it I didn’t want to put it down until the end. 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 blood while Fane searches desperately to find Aurora before rogue vampires do. The hunters have become the hunted. And the road to freedom has never felt more uncertain. This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. This book will keep you reading long into the night. This was such a great read and full of surprises.
The narrators Em Eldridge and Sean Peck did a great job with this book. They did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to in one sitting and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end.
If you are looking for a great book with great characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.

"I love this series!"
I love this series!
Nikki Jefford has done it again. Whiteout has a perfect balance of action, suspense, romance, and mystery. You never know what's going to happen, and just when you get a thread of an idea, the whole thing unravels with a shocking surprise!
I absolutely loved one particular part of the book, not to spoil, but something I've been waiting on since book one finally happens and it's perfect. I'm actually really happy with the way it played out.
Dante continues to annoy me in this one, but I honestly think he is one of those characters that you either love or hate. I'm still 100% Team Fane. Nikki had me sweating it for a few chapters, hinting around that something was going to happen to screw that up...
I will be really sad when this series comes to an end but you can see it coming, I fear there won't be too many books after this one.
I'm not sure how to properly write this review. As a whole, I enjoyed Whiteout more than the other books. I feel like Ms. Jefford has gotten better with each book. Her lines are snappy and I found myself chuckling alongside Aurora and Dante for most of the book.
However, I'm starting to feel a bit of Twilight syndrome over the whole Dante/Aurora/Fane thing. I find myself wanting to root for Dante even though he stands virtually no chance. Especially in this book.
I also kept waiting for the other shoe to drop. For the whole book. I felt like I was on the cusp of some horrible disaster that never really occurred. That isn't to say there aren't plenty of setbacks and horrible encounters. There were and it was awesome, I just was waiting for the whole "Luke, I am your father" moment.
Em Eldridge was spot on as always, but the new narrator, Sean Peck, left something to be desired. He spoke so fast, it was jarring. I actually tried to slow down the playing during his parts, but that just made the file distorted. I feel like if he just slowed down his speech, it would have been fine, but as it was, I couldn't wait for his sections to end. I found myself dreading each chapter break, hoping it wouldn't go back to Fane's perspective. Thankfully, his parts were tiny and seldom occurring.
That said, the book was well done overall, and I wouldn't hesitate to listen to another one from Ms. Jefford. You know, as long as Fane isn't speaking.
