“Gina never fails to please, as she strides down the runway of afterlife with just the right mix of humor, make-up advice, youthful lust that never crosses the line and a kung-fu style all her own. This one doesn’t miss a beat.” - Kirkus Reviews
From “Valley Vamp Rules for Surviving Your Senior Prom” by fashionista Gina Covello
Do not get so loaded at the after prom party that you accidentally-on-purpose end up in the broom closet with the surprise hottie of the evening, say the class chess champ who’s somewhere lost his bottle-cap lenses and undergone an extreme makeover, especially if that makeover has anything to do with becoming one of the undead.
Gina Covello has a problem. Waking up a dead is just the beginning.
There's very little she can't put up with for the sake of eternal youth and beauty. Blood-sucking and pointy stick phobias seem a small price to pay. But she draws the line when local vampire vixen Mellisande gets designs on her hot new boyfriend with his prophecied powers and hatches a plot to turn all of Gina’s fellow students into an undead army to be used to overthrow the vampire council.
Hey, if anyone's going to create an undead entourage, it should be Gina! Now she must unselfishly save her classmates from fashion disaster and her own fanged fate.
"VAMPED is a total delight! Diver delivers a delightful cast of undead characters and a fresh, fast take on the vampire mythos. Next installment, please!" • Rachel Caine, New York Times bestselling author of the Morganville Vampires series
“This quick read is filled with teen slang and fashion consciousness; it’s a lighthearted, action-packed, vampire romance story following in the vein of Julie Kenner’s “Good Ghouls” (Berkley), Marlene Perez’s “Dead” (Harcourt), and Rachel Caine’s “The Morganville Vampires” (Signet) series. A sequel is in the works.” • School Library Journal
“Diver uses wit and adventure to hook readers with this teen vampire story.” • VOYA
In ReVamped, Gina and her boyfriend Bobby are sent undercover to infiltrate a New York high school where some seriously weird stuff is going down. Worse than that, Gina’s new super-secret identity is as goth-girl Geneva Belfry. No color palette to speak of. More chains than a bike rack. And don't even get her started on the shoes. At least she won’t be too worried about blood spatter when kicking the butt of her newest nemesis, who’s decided that the high school makes a perfect playground.
“Gina, the 17-year-old fashionista of the undead, is back and as sassy as ever (Vamped, 2009). Thoroughly enjoyable, this sequel is a light, fizzy read… listening in on Gina’s thoughts and quick-witted dialogue is what makes this such a treat.” • Kirkus Reviews
“ReVamped by Lucienne Diver was witty, sweet, and just dark enough to ignite my morbid taste buds.” • Bitten by Books
“Perfect for teens and adults, this is a book to share, savor and revisit. ReVamped is full of smart, spot-on dialogue, engaging, authentic characters and a plot that’s so much fun it’s impossible not get swept up.” • Examiner.com
Gina Covello, heroine of Vamped and Revamped, has to face a cadre of killer kids in this third novel. Her new mission puts her smack dab in the middle of the sunshine state, bitter-sweet since her tanning options are now eternally non-existent. She, her boyfriend Bobby, and her BFF Marcy must face off with vampire lifestylers, including the steampunk Burgess Brigade, some of whom have gone rogue and decided to start their own little Manson family.
If that’s not enough to handle, the Feds want Gina to get in good with the true vampires running the clubs the kids frequent to find out what deeper doings might be behind it all. Only Gina starts to suspect that her own handlers at the spy shop aren’t completely on the up and up and that the bad guys aren’t all she has to investigate.
“Diver successfully creates a vampire teen who is active and assertive and has no time for angst. Gina has a biting, sarcastic voice that makes theVampedbooks quick and entertaining reads.” • VOYA
With the Ghouligans in town, we can’t stay in Salem.But with a supernatural strangler running loose, we can’t leave.
After figuring out the Feds like to perform mad experiments on vamps for fun and profit, I decided it was time for me—Gina Covello, fashionista of the fanged—and my minions to ditch our government spy jobs. Unfortunately, that made us public enemies number one through six.
Being on the run from the Feds and the fangs alike is no picnic, and who knew our perfect hiding place would be crawling with ghosts? The nasty spirit of infamous Sheriff Corwin from ye old witch trial days is on a killing spree. And with a reporter from the ghost hunting reality show Ghouligans ready to blow our vamp cover, Salem isn’t helping us blend in. But the supernatural strangler needs to be stopped. Sure, I rose from the dead, but this evil ghost’s victims won’t be as lucky . . . or as fangtabulous as me.
“Another amusing romp in the series, this installment also sees its hardy heroine beginning to mature, adding further dimension to her character. Reminiscent of Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse and Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum, Gina never fails to deliver the goods.” • Kirkus Reviews
