ReVamped is the first book in the Angel Creek Chronicles 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.
I started reading it one day and stayed up to finish reading it later the same evening because I couldn't put it down. In the authors own words, "ReVamped is a bit of a different take on the genre. Lighter on the romance (so it's not 'Twilight'), but it has a lot of action, adventure and humor." I loved the fresh take on the Vampire genre. The main character, Dawn, is a young vampire who has trained her whole life in defense and sets out on her very first mission in Angel Creek. There are fights, love triangles, drama, twists, werewolves (again a different take!) and more. What I really enjoyed was the way the author built each of the characters and let you really "know" them. She tells the story so that you can really imagine what is going on and feel like you are a part of it. It's a must read! :)
