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

Holy vamps. Seriously one of the BEST vampire books out there. It took me two days to finish it because it was just well written, and I felt like I was part of their world. I read this book without reading the summary or any reviews. Well, I saw a couple of bloggers on Twitter saying how much they loved it, and that was pretty much it. I went into this book without knowing anything except that it was about vampires. ReVamped is told from the female protagonist’s point of view, Dawn, a 19 year old who is the daughter of the vampire U.S. president. That’s right, a vampire U.S. president. Being the president’s daughter, he was very protective of her, and in this book, Dawn was given her first mission from her father, which is to recruit the 4 new guardian vampires of a town called Angel Creek. This book is where people and vampires live together, but with a couple of rules. There are two kinds of vampires, the one BORN and the ones that were MADE.

I love how the characters didn’t sound anything alike. They were all unique and had their quirks which made me laugh at times. They all had an interesting background which made me surprised. I really liked Dawn‘s character. She was realistic which made her relatable. What I love about her is that she doesn’t complain; she thinks positively no matter how hard or complicated the situation is. Sebastian‘s character was mysterious, snobbish and he often has mood swings, but there’s an explanation of why he is like that. Trust me, you won’t hate him. Ethan was just cute! He’s a bartender (or a waiter?) at a restaurant at Angel Creek who Dawn first meets. He’s so adorable and I actually want him to end up with Dawn. Yes, there is a love triangle, but it’s not one of those annoying love triangles just to have a love triangle in the book. The romance rocks! I love how it didn’t took over the story.

Now, the MisFits. These people are totally hilarious. They are called misfits simply because at first Dawn didn’t think that these teenagers that she recruited fits to be a guardian. I don’t want to go over these characters because I want you to find out their personalities as you read it. Brooke, a cheerleader recruited to be a misfit, might be annoying and stupid at times, but she adds humor to the story.

Although I enjoyed reading ReVamped, there was one thing I was confused about in Brooke’s past. I don’t understand how she was able to stay in high school since 1900’s, I believe, without getting caught? Don’t you need paperworks for transferring to a different school? Weren’t they able to catch her repeating her high school years? I also thought if people and vampires live in the same world, then how come vampires didn’t have their own school? Those are just some of my questions that were never answered, but I still loved the book! I definitely, highly, extremely recommend this to everyone especially if you’re looking for a fresh vampire read.

    Thanks so much for this review!! I’ve kind of seen this book around, but never really bothered to find out more about it, since frankly, I tend to hate Paranormal books with a passion. I was sold, though, the first time you mentioned the Vampire president. Because a vampire world weaved into our own? I’m convinced! Gotta read it 🙂 Again, thanks for the awesome review – it definitely made me want to read Revamped!
