From Booklist

Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Clueless in Diver’s stand-alone sequel to Vamped (2009). Gina Covello, 17-forever vampire and fashion addict, goes undercover as teen goth Geneva Belfry to find out why the teens of quiet little Wappingers Falls on the Hudson River are suddenly erupting in violence, failing tests, and sleepwalking. Though there’s plenty of action, it’s Gina’s snarky, irreverent voice that keeps the pages turning in this quick read. Her disgust for the goth outfits she has to wear is delightful, and her almost-clinical descriptions of the physical difficulties in vampirism are a hoot. Grades 8-12. --Debbie Carton

No, Gina hasn’t become the runway model she was born to be: it is blood-soaked fun as our favorite vamp shows her “fanged fabulosity” on her first mission for the Feds. From the quick recap and “Gina’s Rules for Surviving Super Spy School Training” I was hooked!

This first-person YA fantasy is a perfect sequel to VAMPED. In book two, Lucienne Diver captures the voice of a teen-turned vamp using popular movie and media references, slang, and hilarious sarcasm that could only come from the mouth of a confident girl learning how to become a secret spy.

Super Goth. Bionic Babe. Chaos.

Undercover as high school student Geneva Belfry, the plotline becomes a classic Agatha Christie “whodunit” as the suspects come out of the woodwork to ditch class in a pimped hearse. Of course, Gina’s vanity doesn’t stop her from accomplishing the mission, and becoming a heroine. Only the fanged fashionista could use chopsticks as hair deco and weapons!

“What good was eternal life if you had to spend it in school?”

Boys. “Boy Scout Bobby” is back with his “manbot” mental mojo and magical blue eyes. He has competition for Gina’s heart as hot, goth-guy Ulric begins to suspect she is more than just a “ninja princess” in Mary Janes and fishnet stockings.

“Not a creature was stirring – not even a lab mouse.”

Just like the previous book, REVAMPED has lots of quotable lines showing this author has a sense of humor and an understanding of how teens think. I won’t spoil the surprise nemesis forces that battle for control of the high school population. I will say if Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel had a vamp baby it would be Gina. Like a “diva storm” she has a black belt in fashion, and kicking baddie-butt!

A Happy ending: this is not THE END!

I wasn't overly impressed by Lucienne Diver's first YA fantasy novel, VAMPED, but I'm very pleased to say that the sequel, REVAMPED, is a great improvement over its predecessor. The story picks up shortly after the conclusion of Book 1. Teen vampire Gina Covella, the vampire boyfriend who turned her, Bobby, and their vamped high school friends have escaped from the scheming vampire queen Mellisande only to be enlisted by a covert government agency. Now rigorously trained in "secret spy school," Gina, Bobby and former-jock-turned-minion Rick are sent on their first undercover mission: to figure out why kids in Wappingers Falls, New York are acting weird, disappearing and turning up dead. Gina assumes the disguise of an emancipated Goth girl named Geneva Belfry and quickly bonds with a cluster of Goth students in the local high school. It doesn't take long for chaos to ensue.

Protagonist and narrator Gina is far more vivid and likeable in this book. She's more vulnerable, more complex, and more sympathetic, while being far less snarky, shallow and hip. Other characters are drawn more clearly as well. The adult figures, especially the pair of Federal agents who supervise the teen spies, are no longer uniformly incompetent, and the teens respect them more, even if Gina still has a few smart-alecky nicknames for them. The plot keeps you guessing, and has a few twists that I didn't see coming.

REVAMPED is a fun, fluffy read, and despite Gina's fierce fondness for Bobby, it completely avoids the mawkish teen girl moping and yearning that characterize too many paranormal YA books. I hope Lucienne Diver has more stories to tell about Gina, Bobby, Rick and their adventures in the supernatural secret service. She's blossoming as a writer in a most enjoyable way.

ReVamped is the second installment in Diver's delightfully written Vamped series. Like the first, ReVamped tells the story of high school senior Gina Covello, vampire extraordinaire. With her not so quick wit, but quick sarcastic come backs, and a kick-ass attitude, Gina is the ultimate teen vampire.

There are strange happenings Wappingers Falls. Many teens are becoming more aggressive while others seem to be waking around in a daze. Grades are dropping, even among the geeks. Gina, Bobby, and Rick-the-rat; now working undercover with the spooks, must find out what's going on and stop it.

Though the story line is basically the same as the first book; a master vamp wanting to create an army of teen vampires, it still flows nicely and seems pretty logical. How else would a vampire move up in the ranks unless they have an army of minions?

I love that Diver introduced the infamous Rasputin into the mix. It adds a nice bit of historical lore, and makes the story all the more enjoyable.

I would liked to have seen a little more in regards to the development of Gina and Bobby's relationship however. I didn't feel the closeness of them in this book, and apparently neither did Gina herself, as she seemed to be very attracted to Ulric.

Another great one day read by Diver that left me smiling in the end.
