Rating: 4.5 beautiful purple stars out of 5!

Vampire books are usually bloody and dark and nightmare-inducing. But ReVamped focuses more on the fun side of vampires, which is one reason why I adored it so much!

ReVamped takes place in a world where vampires coexist peacefully together with humans, who idolize vampires rather than fear them. There are TV shows like Next Vamp Idol and Transylvania Shore, as well as drinks like Blood Cola. They even have a Scarlet House for a vampire president next...more

ReVamped ( Angel Creek #1)by Ada Adams

Ada Adams bring us a new and fresh look into the lives of vampires, it is refreshing, funny at times and well written. The words flowed easily, character descriptions were excellent, and you got to know each character well. All in all I would say this was an excellent read.

We are introduced to Dawn; she is the daughter of the President of the Vampires. In this novel Vampires are out and almost treated like we treat movie stars today. They are sought after,...more

ReVamped by Ada Adams is not your typical vampire story. Ada Adams took the idea of vampires and built her own story around it with added fun and flare that is completely engrossing and highly entertaining. I fell completely head over heels in love with this book from the moment I read it.

The world that Ada has built up in ReVamped is originally unique, downright amazing and possibly even better than the world we live in now. In ReVamped, vampires live peacefully side by side with humans. Not o...more

SUMMARY (50 word or less)

Well, I’m not sure how I feel about this book. I’m a little confused with the angle for it. The writing wasn’t bad, but I didn’t know if this was a parody or if this was suppose to be a humorous book. I guess you could say I’m spe...more

Brilliantly plotted, inventive, and outrageously fun to read, ReVamped is a book that rocked my socks off, made me shiver with excitement, and sent me into dangerous fits of laughter. It's deliciously geeky, potent, beautifully imagined, emotionally engaging, and incredibly (and I mean INCREDIBLY) compelling. This is not your usual sucky vampire story. This is easily one of the most original, totally badass takes on the vampire world ever!

Dawn is a vampire, and not just any vampire but a Born...more

Sometimes I see a book tweeted about, or mentioned somewhere, and on the spur of the moment I’ll buy it. Randomly, I’ll neglect my careful pile of TBR ARCs that I’m supposed to be reading, deviate from my schedule and try something completely left wing. Sometimes this turns out really great. Sometimes it doesn’t.

This was one of those times where it doesn’t. Ever been in a dream that you kind of liked, though couldn’t help but notice that it made absolutely no sense? If you don’t, ReVamped is a g...more

Sent to the small town of Angel Creek to train four new vampires to become guardians of the town, Dawn thinks she has been given a pretty easy assignment. Her assignment, however, turns out to be not so simple when she meets her trainees, and the longer Dawn is in Angel Creek, the more she realizes she is in for more than she bargained for.

Revamped gives us a different take on vampires from the usual. I enjoyed the way they were portrayed in this book and loved the humor throughout the story. Th...more
Shieka( Doctor's Notes)
If you think that this is just another vampire story you are sadly mistaken. This book was so much more. It had all you could want in a book and then some. We start out this book by meeting Dawn who is in the middle of training. We learn she is a vampire and about to be sent on a mission. We learn that she is a Born vampire which makes her special than an average vampire.



I love the way this book showed vampires out in the open and living normal lives. It was a different well deserved take on va...more

There have been several good Vampire books which I really enjoyed this year. But none of them compare to ReVamped. This book really gives me hope that the Vampire genre can come back from the brink and be a great genre in Young Adult like it has the potential to be. Out of all the books I have read this year (117) ReVamped has easily taken the spot as my second favorite book this year. It is that great of a book. Ada's writing is amazing and I just honestly couldn't find any faults with this boo...more

ReVamped Review on K-Books

"I was falling for the one guy in the world I had never expected to fall for and I was falling hard."

I really don't know what to say when thinking about this book. I had heard great things about this book but after reading so many vampire books I was completely prepared for this to be just another vampire book. I was completely surprised and ended up loving this book.

Vampire Dawn has always been trained to be her father's second-in-command. So when an important mission...more

Jul 10, 2012 Nicole rated it 4 of 5 stars Recommends it for: Teens and Adults!
ReVamped was an exciting debut novel for author Ada Adams. You have anendearingheroine, a couple of sexy potential book boyfriends, and a great urban fantasy stage set.

Dawn, a vampire, has been training all her life and never been allowed to put her training to use. When her father finally decides to give her a "safe"assignment she is sent to a small town to train four misfit vampires to be the towns newguardians. But not all is at it seams in Angel Creek and must figure out who to trust and exa...more

I loved this book, completely loved it! I think that I enjoyed it so much because it just seemed so different from the normal vampire book. Normally, vampires are made out to be super hot, strong, seductive and suave. In Ada Adam's novel, they are pretty good looking still, but not all are strong and agile, or seductive. In fact, the misfit vampires seem about as far as you can go from what's "normal" for vampires. And that cover? I love it!

In Adams' world, the vampires are coexisting with human...more
Jeanbooknerd
The remarkable world that Ada Adams has brilliantly created in ReVamped is absolutely unique and amazing. It is a world where humans and vampires peacefully coexist to the extent that vampires are admired by humans. At first, it sounds over-the-top but Ada knew what she was getting into. She provides readers with rich and bold descriptive text that her creative world becomes interesting and admirable.

Nineteen year-old Dawn, a stern vampire-born warrior, is assigned a mission by her father, the V...more

Fast-paced and well written, ReVamped takes a new twist in Vampire story.

ReVamped set in time when humans have accepted vampires in their daily life and vampires have became some kind of idol. Imagine One Direction with fangs or Hugh Grant who bites. There are even shows like Next Vamp Idol or a charitable organization named Vamps Without Borders.

Dawn is the daughter of current vampire president. She is smart, beautiful, and determined. She wants to prove her father that she is capable of being...more

Adams has created a wonderful world that's full of suspense, danger, and romance. ReVamped is an intelligent alternative to many of the YA books out there today, and it is a refreshing and unique take on vampire lore. It did remind me a tiny bit of the Sookie series, but I love that series, so I am okay with that. The characters in this book are well-developed, the plot is intriguing, and there is plenty of action. This book flies by. I read it all in one sitting, and I cannot wait for the seque...more

After reading the synopsis on this book I was pretty excited to start it. It sounded right up my alley. Vampires, action, romance, conspiracies.

Yep, that has me written all over it. If I had any doubt after reading the synopsis that this was going to be the book for me, the cover alone would have lured me right in. It is gorgeous and begs for you to pick it up and give it a try.

This is not your typical YA vampire book. Not at all. This is something different and fresh and new. Completel...more

I was instantly drawn to ReVamped because of it's stunningly beautiful cover. So when I got the opportunity to read the book as part of the ReVamped relay I jumped at the chance. I can safely say that ReVamped is not just a pretty cover, it has one of the most genuinely interesting story-lines I have read in a long time. Not to mention the most truly likeable, relate-able and delicious characters, that were a joy to get to know. There is tons of kick-butt action, lots of shockers and a whirlwind...more

Taken from my original review:

http://gothicangelbookreviews.blogspo...

I'm not sure how I first came across ReVamped, what I do know is I loved what I saw. From the amazingly gorgeous purple cover (my favourite colour) with the beautiful model, to the enticing blurb, I knew that this would be something I wanted to read.

The day after I looked this up, I was surprised to have an email in my inbox from Ada asking if I would like to review it. Spooky coincidence! I told her that I'd only been looki...more

ReVamped is the first book in the Angel Creek series by Ada Adams and was kindly provided to me by the author for Bewitching book tours.

19 year-old Dawn Fairchild is the daughter of the US Vampire President, she is a vampire born rather than made and has trained her whole life to be her fathers second in command. When she is given an opportunity or her first mission to travel to Angel Creek and recruit new vampires as Gu...more

Wow. This book was so much fun! I genuinely loved and enjoyed reading it, especially the first half of the story. ReVamped is a very interesting and unique take on the vampire genre. Just when I think I couldn't possibly stand one more vampire book, novels like this one and The Immortal Rules start popping up and changing my mind. Ada Adams has definitely given us something new to read and I was left quite impressed by the end. The genre may be getting saturated but clearly some authors still ha...more

Imagine vampires coming out of the coffins and walking amongst us, with us knowing and accepting them...

From the prologue I could feel myself falling in love with this book! I’m not exaggerating from the very first line I was hooked!! Here’s the first line of the book “A sharp, searing pain pierced through my chest as I watched the guy I liked- the guy I was falling in love with- kiss another girl.”

What did I tell you? Amazing! And did I mention...more

*Thanks to the lovely Ada Adams for the e-copy which has no effect on my honest review!

What if vampires and humans coexisted peacefully? What if vampires had their own U.S President and their own house called the Scarlet House? Mix in some concoctions like Blood Vodka, Blood Beer and even Blood Cola and you get an amazing debut from Ada Adams!

Dawn is a nineteen year old BORN vampire, who lives with her overly protective Father. ReVamped is where we see Dawn finally able to spread her wi...more

ReVamped is a nice change of pace from the traditionalist approach to vampires. The vamps in Ms. Adams' novel come in 2 varieties: The Made and The Born.

The "Made" vampires ones that were once human then turned into a vampire. These vampires stop aging.

The "Born" vampires are actually conceived by another "Born" vampire. The children produced are always female and they grow up and age just as humans do. One difference, in that aspect, is that if a "Born" vampire conceives a child of her own, she...more

Well I certainly wish I had picked up this book sooner. I didn't start it until about 7pm and I was up until about 2-3am reading it. My reading ability slowed with the late hour but my interest only intensified as I read on and I was not ready to put this wonderful book down. Even after the last page was turned, I was still finding myself wanting more. Not because it was a cliff hanger ending but because I simply loved everything about this book.

The story itself seemed simple enough to start....more

Thank you to the awesome Ada Adams for sending me a PDF of ReVamped as a post-exam treat. Ada, you are awesome and I love you. *totally not creepy, ok?*


*rubs hands*


THE COVER! I have a thing for this cover. It is beautiful. Isn't it captivating? Yes, yes it is. The simpleness of it is amazing. The font of the title and the author is awesome. The spider web type thing behind the title looks like someone punched a window and it cracked. By someone, I mean the girl on the cover. We don't see all of...more

First things first, check out the amazing cover. Isn't it freaking beautiful? That is was actually drew me to the book in the first place, just how stunning it was.

Ada Adams did not write your typical vampire book – no glittering vampires, no hiding from the sun, no hiding from humans, and no garlic repels vamps (actually garlic makes them able to walk in the sunlight – they actually EAT it). ReVamped is a book filled with humour, romance and adventure.

Filled with quirky characters, like Brooke...more

When I found "ReVamped" on Bloggerdise (a website which offers companies/authors a place to list products and bloggers a chance to find neat things to review), I was immediately intrigued by the cover design -- the aforementioned description was just an enthralling addition. "ReVamped" definitely delivered. It is an atypical vampire novel, so if you are sick of the hype surrounding the creatures, you will enjoy Adams' refreshing perspective.

In "ReVamped", vampires live openly alongside humans a...more

"ReVamped" was given to me by the author herself and I am eternally grateful. This book is ONE OF A KIND. I just finished it and I'm sad and happy. I'm sad because I want to read SO MUCH more about beautiful Dawn, mesmerizing Sebastian, cute Ethan and the Fab Four or now five;)I'm happy because finally Dawn gets to learn the truth about the dark secrets and she gets her "first" with Sebastian;) First lets begin how this cover is completely GORGEOUS and your just drawn to it!

What can I say about new author Ada Adams and her debut novel, ReVamped? It was AWESOME! I could not put the book down! I had to force myself to stop reading so I could get some sleep the night I started reading it. This book is a whole new take on vampires who live openly and freely in society. Dawn is the main character, the nineteen-year-old daughter of the current vampire president. She has been trained since she was young in defense and now she finally has her first mission; to go to Angel...more
