Genre: Vampire/ Paranormal
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.
So as we all know the vampire phenomenon has taken the world by storm and there are plenty of books out there with vampire love stories, we have read about sparkling vampires, and vampires who fall in love with humans all that good stuff. I have been an avid reader of the vampire series that continue to come out so you can rest assured that this review is honest and accurate when I say; this was such a refreshing book. ‘Revamped’ brought something absolutely new to this genre. I loved the characters, I loved how fresh and new the idea was, it was really captivating. I haven’t read anything like ‘Revamped’ I mean this book has the vampire living out in the open with humans, it has a vampire president, and vampire products that are found in grocery stores such as Blood Cola and Blood Vodka. They aren’t very fond of feeding from the live source anymore of course. It was more about the story of the main character and her mission not a love story and that’s what I really loved, I mean does every single vampire book have to be a love story, I think not! It was just beautifully creative, the way this book was written.
It kept me on the edge of my seat, the story plot kept thickening with twists and turns. It was such a thrilling book, I could easily see a series being made out of this book and it being huge. ‘Revamped’ is the next big thing in vampire books. I would keep your eyes on Ada Adams because she has created something massively powerful here. Wonderful, refreshing, inspiring, absolutely loved it. I would highly recommend it for all you vampire followers out there!
