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.

My Review:
There is one major twist in ReVamped and that's that vampires are out in the open and are accepted by humans. You have shows such as Next Vamp Idol and Transylvania Shore, um yea I see what you did there Ada. Humans love vampires and are so accepting that they have a Scarlet House, which is much like the human White House.

The characters were well developed and center around, Dawn, the daughter of the Scarlet House - aka Vampire president. She's super cool and highly trained in martial arts and other combat. Her main job is to train younger vamps to defend themselves, even though vampires and humans live peacefully together. Things start to get "Fun" when rebel vamps start causing all kinds of problems thus putting the humans in danger. Dawn's father sends her on a special mission entrusting her to train a group of vampires living in a small town. Only problem is they totally suck at being vampires and Dawn has to train them from the bottom up.

ReVamped does have some underlying romance to go along with the sci-fi, fantasy them, but it is realistic. No angsty teenage girl meeting a equally angsty boy and falling in love within the span of 5 seconds. I'm not sure if angtsy is a word, but whatever I'm using it! Vampires are actually vampires with no stupid sparkling in the sun. Please don't read this book thinking you're going to find some vampire love and its just going to be beautiful, because you won't. You will find a great written book with an awesome thought provoking plot and awesome characters that will have you reading this book cover to cover without a break.
