It is the morning of Princess Cassandra’s sixteenth birthday. Everyone’s attention is focused on the heir to the vampire throne. World leaders, the rich and famous, and VIPs from every corner of the globe have gathered in the nation’s capital to celebrate the momentous event.
Cassandra’s boyfriend, Daniel, is late for the party. He’s still outside the city when all hell breaks loose. What he believes is an act of terrorism proves to be a full-fledged revolution. Væmpires—former vampires who mutated into warm-blooded creatures with an insatiable hunger for cold blood—have launched coordinated attacks across the globe, with three goals: the eradication of humanity, the enslavement of vampires, and the ascension of væmpires as the dominant species on the planet.
The vampire and human leaders are killed. Cassandra is missing. Daniel is the acting king. Desperate to find the princess, Daniel and his friends fight their way across the besieged city. With the hopes of the free world resting on the shoulders of four vampire teenagers, væmpires unleash their secret weapons—væmpires with special powers.
What can four teens do against an enemy that can shape-shift, fly, or walk through walls?
This was a fun, brief read that easily had me engrossed!
Vaempires: Revolution is about a Dystopian world that is being taken over by mutilated vampires called Vaempires, which is exactly how the story begins. We follow a fifteen year old vampire named Daniel (Son of the head of the Royal Guard) who is literally fighting his way to Princess Cassandra's Sixteenth birthday party. Because she is the heir to the vampire throne, every guard and soldier is in attendance to ensure that she and her wealthy/powerful acquaintances are safe and sound, leaving the rest of the city completely vulnerable... which is when the vaempires decide to attack.
What are vaempires, you ask? Well before they even came into the picture, humans and vampires fought against each other in a terrible war, until synthetic blood was discovered. Then, a long period of peace ensued. But for some unknown reason, certain vampires started mutilating into a new kind of vampire named Vaempires. Here's the catch though: Vaempires don't like synthetic blood; they like vampire blood. And Daniel is looking to destroy anything that gets in his way when he finds out that his girlfriend, Cassandra, was taken by a vaempire...
What I liked about this book:
This book has an extremely unique plot! I really love the fact that the author decided to explore both the old, grotesque vampire as well as the modern, shapely vampire.
Also, the action in this book is nonstop! Daniel spends the entire book fighting his way through vaempires to get to his missing girlfriend, Cassandra, which made me want to melt, in a good way.
What I disliked about this book:
The author was very descriptive, which don't get me wrong, I love when an author is able to create a vivid setting for me but a couple of times while reading, I thought it got a bit wordy.
If your in the mood for a fast-paced quick read, don't hesitate to pick this book up!
A prelude to this book named Vaempires: A White Christmas is out now! Review on it is coming soon!
