FANGTABULOUS!

“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

Vamped by Lucienne DiverGina Covello's "Rules for Surviving Your Senior Prom" (spring issue of Modern Goth Magazine):

Rule #1: 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, 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.”

ReVamped by Lucienne DiverHaving survived super spy club training, Gina, Bobby and their fanged friends are sent on their first mission—undercover at a New York high school where some seriously weird stuff is going down. As excited as Gina is to get out of spook central, she’s less than impressed with her new identity 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. About the only thing she can say for her all-black wardrobe is that it’s great for hiding blood spatter and other fashion faux pas.

And there will be blood.

Kids at the high school are going crazy—sudden outbreaks of violence, kids sleepwalking through school or dropping out entirely. Serious magic surges have been detected in the area, along with a mysterious and nearly mythic figure…someone who should be long dead and at least thrice buried.

“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.”

FangTastic by Lucienne DiverWhat do you wear to face down a cadre of killer kids?

Gina Covello would rather be working on her manicure than missions for the Feds’ paranormal unit to which she’s been recruited. That changes when a group of killer kids takes out a family in the sunshine state and disappearances begin to plague the lifestylers who only play at the kind of existence our fanged fashionista leads. She and her crew are sent undercover into the vampire clubs…which turn out to be run by real vampires. While Gina’s BFF Marcy hangs with the steampunk-styled Burgess Brigade that spawned the killer kids, Gina herself is supposed to get in good with the fanged fiends behind the scenes, even to the point of playing double-agent, offering to hand over her powerful boyfriend Bobby. Her playacting threatens to become a bit too real when she discovers things about her spy handlers that make her wonder whether she’s truly on the right side of the battle between Feds and fangs.

“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 the Vamped books quick and entertaining reads.”

Fantabulous by Lucienne Diver
Fangtabulous by Lucienne Diver

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.”
