News reporters scrambled. This was the biggest story to come along in weeks.


They called it a blackout.

The last one was in New York City in 2003, but this one was different, special, because the grids in six major cities across the country had been fried, kaput, see-you-next-Sunday. Everyone with some jurisdiction blamed each other, and when there was no one left to blame, terrorism rode in on its gallant steed.


It was the media’s fault. They were so busy stuffing fanatical Muslims with a penchant for Allah and decapitations down the American citizen’s throat, that they never saw it coming. I guess I shouldn’t be too hard on them.


They were partially right.


It was terror after all, but a whole new kind. And when the lights came back on, things had changed. 

The dark had brought us visitors.

My Review


The following review is my opinion and not a paid review. I was given a copy of Revamp from the author for a review via Bewitching Book Tours.

Emma Spade who was a college student and had an interview in California. When she boarded the airplane there were only like 15 passengers. She thought this was very unusual but that was the case. On the flight she fell a sleep from exhaustion caused by the stress of college life. Meaning all of her classes and writing her thesis and turning it in on time.

When she wakes up the airplane has landed and everyone had exited the airplane. Emma was like why didn't the flight attendant or anyone else wake her up and tell her they had landed? She takes her luggage and walks inside the airport. Upon entering the airport and having a look around she is in shock because the airport is empty. There are no people in the airport just like on the airplane.

Emma is a very strong heroine. She doesn't whine when she is attacked. She will access her situation in order to figure out what she needs to do to get away. I think she handled being the only person in an airport the size of LAX very well. While reading Revamp with no one on the airplane nor in the airport it reminded me of a movie that I had watched as a child, called "Where have all the people gone?"

I loved how the author when writing about each character's back ground he would state it like Cooper Then and Cooper Now. He let each character tell their own story and he let you know if they were speaking about the past or the present. You had no doubt of the time that they were speaking of. I have read some books where you are like what? Which character is speaking now and like is this happening now or has it already happened? You have to go back and reread what you just read to figure out who is talking and when it is happening.

Over all I enjoyed, no wait I really, really loved reading Revamp. It was a fabulous read. I loved how the vampires wanted to rise and stand up for what they thought was theirs or what they deserved. I am not saying they were right or that they went about it in the right way just that they stood up for their selves.

I would definitely recommend Revamp to anyone who loves reading horror books. This includes teenagers under 18. Why? Well, when I started reading I did start with romance books. I was in the fifth grade, romance books was I all knew because that is what my grandmother and aunts read. But then a few years later I discovered horror books and fell in love. Reading horror books or watching horror movies never affected me. The bloodier, gorier they are the better I like it. Have I ever had dreams where someone was chasing me and trying to kill me? Yes. Did they scare me? No. When I woke up I wanted to go back to sleep and finish the dream.
