A simple mission turned deadly.
Nineteen-year-old vampire Dawn has led a sheltered life within the confines of her father’s presidential headquarters. Upon being sent on a mission to revamp four goofy misfits into guardians of a peaceful little town of Angel Creek, Dawn believes that all her dreams have finally come true. What starts off as a simple task, turns into something unexpected, changing Dawn’s life forever and leading the action-loving, thrill-seeking vampire teen on a path of mystery, danger and intrigue.
When a human girl is kidnapped by a group of rogue vamps, Dawn discovers that there is more going on in Angel Creek than meets the eye. And it all connects to Ethan, the cute newcomer who seems too perfect to be true, Sebastian, the mysterious vampire with a turbulent past, and even Dawn herself. Dawn must not only succeed in revamping the troubled recruits, but must also prevent the vampire race from being overtaken by a malevolent villain who has a strange and obsessive fascination with her. As threat escalates, romance blooms, and ghosts from her past begin to surface, Dawn is sure of only one thing: her life will never be the same.
Review of ReVamped by Ada Adams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
You'd know a great book when you see it and author Ada Adam's ReVamped is an absolutely good one!
There are now so many "vampire books" out there that one could name a hundred in one sitting (or I may just be exaggerating, sheesh). ReVamped however is definitely one book out of hundreds you'd find yourself fully captivated in up until you turn that very last page.
Ada Adams has given a whole new way to look at vampires. In ReVamped, vampires are not featured as feral, bloodsucking creatures anyone would want to stay away from. Instead, they're more like the celebrities of modern time living peacefully and freely with humans even to the extent that they have developed "bloody snacks" that are exclusively for vampires.
Ada Adams created a whole new and unique world that is undoubtedly engrossing and downright incredible. She's definitely an author to watch out for.
I honestly loved everything about the book. It was very well-written and paced just right. I didn't feel like it went on too fast nor too slow. I love how the words just flew easily and smoothly and how the story developed very well and took its time without being boring.
And the characters! All were equally fun and intriguing with completely different, unique personalities. I won't say much 'cause I might spill spoilers if I do, BUT I just have to say that Sebastian is very much my new book boyfriend, oh sigh..
Sebastian sat down beside me, tenderly touching my arm. His fingers lingered on my skin, sending a shiver down my spine. I felt lightheaded, but, this time, it had nothing to do with the Blood Vodka.
ReVamped is a refreshingly new YA paranormal filled with so much intensity, adventure, romance, humor, a little pinch of drama and a whole lot of vampire-butt-kicking.
