Book Review: ReVamped

                  Today's review is on ReVamped by Ads Adams

This debut novel by Adams sets the stage for a wonderful YA series.  A unique take on the vampire craze, the reader is pulled in and taken on a roller coaster ride of "who done it."  My only complaint. . . edit, edit, edit.

Dawn is a ninteen-year-old BORN vampire.  The only child of the vampire President, she has spent her entire life living and training at Scarlet House; the presidential headquarters.  Her one wish is to be sent on a mission.  When that day finally does come, the supposed simple mission turns into something bigger than she or her father can handle.

The original vampire protectors of the small town; Angel Creek, have left their post.  Now it is up to Dawn to train the remaining four vampires living in the town to take their place.  Thinking that this will only take a day or two, she is surprised to find a group of misfits who need a lot more than a few days to become as capable as the youngest trainees at Scarlet House.

When the talkative waitress of the local diner is kidnapped, it's up to Dawn and the rest of the gang to rescue her.  In doing so, Dawn learns the truth about her birth and the secrets surrounding it. 

I was able to read this 180 page book in one sitting because I could not put it down. I had to know what was going to happen next.  How did the humans become so strong?  What was it that kept pulling Dawn towards Sebastian so strongly?  How is everyone connected?

I would have given ReVamped 4 stars, but because of the amount of editing mistakes I have to lower my rating. 

3 of 5 stars
Available @ Amazon

***After posting this review, I have been informed that a newer reedited version is available.***
