Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Vampire fans who like their blood and gore leavened with humor should enjoy the campy sequel to 2008's Staked. Eric Courtney, strip club owner and operator in Void City, is coming to terms with existence as a ghost vampire after dying in an explosion that totaled his place of business. His former fiancée, Marilyn, tells Eric that his best friend betrayed him, but the demon J'iliol'lth collects her soul before she can explain further. Worse yet, Eric's beloved Mustang somehow gets turned into a vampire. Eric accepts a commission from J'iliol'lth to find the Stone of Aeternem, which enables its holder to raise the dead, in exchange for immortality and the return of Marilyn's soul. The jokes are far from subtle, but Lewis's creativity elevates this above similar outings. (Mar.)

This book picks up right where Staked lefted off. Eric had been blown up, his car gone, his business destroyed, best friend dead, ex-girlfriend with someone else, the woman he loved for so long betrayed him, and his current lover was up to something... Yet, he was resiliant. He got his body back, considered opening a bowling alley in place of the club, and sought out a demon named J'iliol'lth in hopes to retrieve Marilyn's soul. I actually liked Eric more in this book than the previous one. I felt his fustration. In truth, I think, I would be a prick most of the time too, if I put up with half the crap he did. While he would deny it, I think he was a good guy underneath it all...even under the monster. It was apparent that he was loyal to those he cared about. But, the guy just wanted to be left alone. Yet, people seemed to always betray him or were always after him for one thing or another. Not to mention, Rachel who manipulated him with her tantric magic and cinnamon scent. I really didn't like her.

Like its predecessor, this book also had Tabitha's perspective. I was disappointed in her character, although I should have expected it. I didn't like that she pretty much whored herself to the vamps of high society. She seemed fickled, whiny, and didn't seem to have a clue half the time. But, I confess, I loved the showdown she had with Rachel. It was the first time, she showed some actual spirit and potential.

I thought the plot to be a bit confusing. Between the vampiric ascensions, the historical background on Eric's family, the curse, and the multitude of people who were manipulating events, I found it hard to keep track of what was going on. That being said, once I figured it all out, I was intrigued.

I bought the first book, Staked at a Hastings book store while visiting Idaho from Canada. I loved it so much, I had to take anther quick trip down a few weeks later to get the rest of the series. (I didn't read digitally back then.) All I can say, is Eric, with his memory problems, his deranged daughter, his girlfriend, and all these characters make for a thrilling, fun, laugh your ass off series! I quickly became a fan/stalker! LOL I absolutely love the the whole Void city book and don't think I've read anything funnier.

What's the story?
It's about Eric, a very powerful vampire who just wants to be left alone but is constantly getting dragged into one situation after another. He's brutally honest, coarse,impulsive,and doesn't give a crap about anyone; but he's loyal and protective of his friends and family and will kick the [...] of anyone stupid enough to mess with him and his small circle.

Why is ReVamped interesting?
Like Stake, the first Void City novel, it's a new point of view in a growing genre (urban fanstasy). Some things are familiar: vampire - thrall - sex. But Void City is an interesting place and there are so many great characters courtesy of J. F. Lewis. It's fast-paced, hilarious, and has a main character that both male and female readers can relate to.

I was hooked with Staked, extremely satisfied with ReVamped, and excited about what's going to happen in the third. I hope this isn't going to be a trilogy, but rather a series that gets better each year. I'd recommend this to fans of Jim Butcher and Rob Thurman. The hero is rough around the edges but solid as a rock!

What a great book! Lots of action! Funny! I wasn't sure about a book written in first person through different characters' perspectives, but it really worked. Somehow I got this series out of order and this was the first one I read. I'm going back to the beginning and read the first book before moving on, but I am now a devoted fan. Can't wait to read the rest!

this is the 2nd chapter to erics story and BOY what a ride --as many twists and turns as the first (possibly more) a very fun and entertaining read, just as raunchy and action oriented as the first
a must read (after staked)

This guy writes very well, he's one of the few vastly entertaining vampire writers. It has a Dresden-esq feel, but more like if Dresden didn't worry so much about right and wrong.

I love these books and I'm waiting eagerly for the next one. If you've run out of good Fantasy pick these up, you won't be dissapointed.

After being blown apart by blessed explosives, it takes a while for Eric to come back to unlife. He has lost his one love, Marilyn, and he wants revenge. Revenge on Roger, who was supposed to be his best friend but who betrayed him. But Roger has been eaten by a wolf pack, so that should have finished him off for good. He was just a Master vampire, not a Vlad, and certainly not an Emperor like Erik.
Eric’s latest girlfriend, Tabitha, has left him for the high life now that she is a vampire herself, and Eric does not appreciate her. Lord Philip, the vampire who rules Void City, does, and so does the mouser, Talbot. Until Eric finally comes back with the help of his daughter Greta and some powerful magic and, most importantly, his beloved old Mustang. A demon told his ghostly Revenant form that he had possession of Marilyn’s soul, and Eric could get it back, for a price. But Eric has had memory problems ever since he has been embalmed upon being murdered by Roger, and it takes a few months for him to remember. But the moment he does, he has only one goal, get his Marilyn back.

Unfortunately, Rachel, Tabitha’s sexy little sister, a tantric witch, still has her claws firmly into Eric, manipulating him with sex and magic. While she can make him feel alive, she is also sipping his power from him to use for herself. And as “people” can barter with demons, it is easy to come back from the death. Eric also finally learns to make thralls when he saves some women from a vampire children prostitution ring. They don’t have to be slaves, he can treat them as he treated the strippers who used to work for him in the Demon’s Heart. Roger blew it up, but Eric still has the Pollux, the ancient theatre next door.
