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.
I fell in love with this book from chapter one! I love vampire books in general, but this one is just so much fun. In the first chapter we meet our heroine, Dawn, the vampire president's very sheltered daughter who longs to go out into the world. We also learn about current vampire events, such as the vampires becoming public and how they're viewed as celebrities. There's also mentions of some of the new reality TV shows (Transylvania Shore!) which had me grinning from ear to ear. ReVamped is a fun and refreshing addition to the vampire genre that will leave you with a smile on your face.
Dawn's first trip away from home is a mission to assemble a new team of guardians for the small town of Angel Creek. There's four very different vampires she must round up: a preppy cheerleader, a quiet librarian, an alcoholic ex-rockstar, and a video game nerd. She definitely has a lot of work to do to get this group ready! Then there's the mysterious fifth vampire, Sebastian, who wants nothing to do with society, human or vampire. When a local human gets kidnapped by rogue vampires, Dawn must whip this unruly group into shape!
There's some interesting twists and turns along the way that I was not expecting at all! The story is most definitely unique and I enjoyed every page. I adored Dawn! She's super sweet, caring, determined, fierce and I loved witnessing her blossom into a strong woman.
ReVamped is lighthearted, fun, and has claimed a special place in my vampire-loving heart! I had such a good time reading it that I can overlook any inconsistencies and typos that stood out to me. It didn't effect my enjoyment of the book, so why dwell on it?! There are plenty of laugh out loud moments, action, and a bit of romance. If you're looking for a quick, super enjoyable read, this is definitely it!
