Title: ReVamped (Angel Creek Series Book 1)
Author: 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.
As soon as I read the synopsis for ReVamped I just knew I was going to like it and I was not disappointed. This not just another vampire story with vampires and werewolves, oh no! Dawn is a vampire, but she was not a turned vampire she was actually born a vampire which makes her a special kind of vampire. She learns that she will be sent on a mission and her mission is in Angel Creek. Vampires in this book do not hide in the shadows, they walk around like humans because mayors of the towns want vampires living in their town but there are rules to living in the towns, no turning humans, and no drinking from an unwilling human in exchange for this they are allowed to live in the town and are treated pretty much like celebrities.
This is a fast pacing book and very well written, although it did remind me slightly of the Sookie Stackhouse books.
Title: ReAwakened (Angel Creek Series Book #2)
Author: Ada Adams
Published: November 27, 2012
Becoming a vampire guardian was Dawn Fairchild’s ticket out of the Scarlet House. Fresh off a successful mission, life in Angel Creek should have been great. But when her sort-of-maybe-boyfriend, Sebastian, disappears on a quest to help a beautiful vampire from his past, Dawn finds herself amidst a web of danger, lies, and deceit.
Joining forces with Razor, an enigmatic rebel lacking both a verbal and a physical filter, and her band of Misfits—Brooke, Sophie, Hunter, and Seth—Dawn is thrust into a race against the clock to solve the mystery surrounding brutal Born kidnappings and come to terms with the sudden discovery of her own unique powers. With time ticking away and Born vampires’ lives in jeopardy, it quickly becomes evident that someone—or something—desperately wants Dawn and is willing to shed any amount of blood to get her.
Dawn has only one chance to face her demons and overcome all obstacles standing in her way as she embarks on the biggest mission of her life—one that threatens a deadly outcome for all involved.
ReAwakened is the second book in the Angel Creek series it picked up from where ReVamped left off and again it was a fast pacing storyline that kept me gripped. It was an emotional roller coaster, tragedy, drama, romance, you name it and it is in this book.
With second books I find I am most of the time left a little disappointed as it doesn’t live up to the first book, this one though was even better than the first book, it gave so much more.
Ada Adams is a fabulous author and I love her way of writing. I cannot wait to read the third book in the series.
