Revamped review

                                                              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.

My thoughts:

This was a pretty good book everything said and done, there were a few areas I didn't really like. I was not a fan of how the author depicted the werewolves in her book. I thought it was kind of cheesy, and almost an afterthought. I felt like I was waiting for something to happen that never really did.

Ok, enough about what I didn't like, lets move on to what I did. I loved Dawn, she is so strong and independent, you get the feeling that she could take on anything. I loved her fierce determination to carry out her mission even when things got a lot rougher than she anticipated. The love interests were both awesome, Ethan is your typical hotty, while Sebastian was more reserved and didn't really come around too much in the beginning.

There were definitely things in this book I didn't see coming, Aurora was one of those things. I'm not going to give away too much, because I hate when people do that. I would give this a 3 out of 5, and I would read another book by this author in the future.

  1. Thank you for taking the time read and review "ReVamped".

    I'm very happy to learn that you liked the characters of Dawn, Ethan and Sebastian. The werewolves were definitely a writing choice that I knew may not appeal certain people, but as a writer, I'm sure you know all about the risks of trekking through uncharted territory. :)

    Have a lovely day!

    Best regards,
    Ada A.

    1. I know, we do take risks, and not everyone will like what we do. As long as you are happy with it, that's all that matters
