ReVamped by Ada Adams
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.
This was a completely different kind of vampire book then I thought it would be. Most of the books I have read about vampires they are creepy and mysterious and drink only human or animal blood. I thought that a lot of the ideas in this book were very modern like Transylvania Shore and blood pop! Because come on in this day and age that would defiantly happen! The book also ties in some really cool things that I never saw coming! I don't want to The story was really inventive too. Dawn gets to live her dream by training a group of miss-fit vampires and truly prove how much she has trained and grown.
I really liked Dawn. I always like it when a girl can kick some serious butt! Dawn is not someone I would want to make mad or run into in a dark alley. She takes her work seriously and would do anything for her loved ones and friends. I think that is a very important characteristic for the female lead. Sebastian...I am kind of rooting for him! He seems like a very interesting character and it should be interesting to see where things go. Especially with how the book started.
It will be interesting to see what happens with this series. Especially with Aurora!
