ReVamped by Ada Adams

ReVamped (Angel Creek, #1)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 don't know about you, but when I pick up a vampire book I think Twilight. This was no Twilight. In ReVamped, vampires are celebrities. Part of an exclusive club you wish you could be part of. And Dawn's genetics made her one of the most exclusive. Revamped kept you guessing. Whether it was about Dawns romantic interest, the kidnappers, or Dawn's family.

It was well-placed and funny. There were alot of pop culture references, and I love that in a book. When a book is set in its own little world its still cool, but its nice to read a relatable  book with references I actually understand. Although the book was almost 300 pages, it felt super short. Like it felt like 150. MAYBE 200. At most. It takes skill to be able to make a book fly by like that.

As far as vampire books go, this one was one of the most original I've read in a while. Vampires have come out of the closet, and the public adores them. Don't deny it, if you saw someone sparkling in the sun, you'd throw yourself at you him screaming "Let me be your Bella!" The twist was totally out of the blue. Like, I did not see that coming *She's a clone. Of a vampire. Of a born vampire. Yeah. Mind Blown.

The characters in this book were so stereotypical. Brooding but sweet love interest.  All-american boy with a hidden agenda. A mysfunctional group of undead teens who need to be reformed before the inevitable big battle. And a villain with only half a face... gross. But even though they are not super original, and just a little bit cliche, they were still lovable. Like super annoying but admittedly cute teddy bears. 

See theres this whole love triangle thing going on throughout the book, and I'm really, really, not into love triangle. I gotta say I'm team Sebastian. The romance, in my opinion, was very hard to get into.
