Overview

In  New York Times bestselling author Rachel Caine’s “thrilling”* Revivalist series, Bryn Davis finds out that making a living can be rough if you’re already dead...

 

After dying and being revived with the experimental drug Returne, Bryn Davis is theoretically free to live her unlife—with regular doses to keep her going. But Bryn knows that the government has every intention of keeping a tight lid on Pharmadene’s life-altering discovery, no matter the cost.

 

Thankfully, some things have changed for the better; her job at the rechristened Davis Funeral Home is keeping her busy and her fragile romance with Patrick McCallister is blossoming—thanks in part to their combined efforts in forming a support group for Returne addicts. But when some of the group members suddenly disappear, Bryn wonders if the government is methodically removing a threat to their security, or if some unknown enemy has decided to run the zombies into the ground…

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Brought back from the dead by way of an experimental drug called Returné, funeral director Bryn Davis needs regular injections to maintain her existence. When other recipients of the drug disappear and Bryn discovers evidence of a powerful and dangerous conspiracy, she turns for help to the only people she can trust but soon discovers that trust is not as simple as it seems. VERDICT Caine's second series entry (after Working Stiff) continues to raise the bar for urban fantasy. Bypassing the wisecracking prose of similar series, it deals realistically and compassionately with both the undead and the dead and achieves depth in the process. Caine is also the author of the "Weather Warden" series.

Meet the Author

Rachel Caine is the author of more than twenty novels, including the "Weather Warden" series. She was born at White Sands Missile Range, which people who know her say explains a lot. She has been an accountant, a professional musician, and an insurance investigator, and still carries on a secret identity in the corporate world. She and her husband, fantasy artist R. Cat Conrad, live in Texas with their iguanas, Popeye and Darwin; a mali uromastyx named (appropriately) O’Malley; and a leopard tortoise named Shelley (for the poet, of course).

    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Associate Reviewer - Michelle

    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Associate Reviewer - Michelle M:

    Bryn Davis is now working with the FBI after they said they would provide her with Returne so that she will not "die". If at anytime she doesn't get her daily supply of the drug she knows that she will die a slow death full of decay and decomposition. Bryn also can be retained by the FBI at any time they feel fit to bring her in on a job. At this time her life is going great, she has a good job, great boyfriend and a cute bulldog that adores her. Bryn also is the head of a support group for the Returne victims and that is where things start to change. Support group members disappear, Bryn is still looking for her sister as well as keeping her relationship going with Patrick McCallister.

    At first I wasn't sure if I was going to like this series but then I read and got pulled into Working Stiff and couldn't wait to read Two Weeks' Notice and this book pulled me in the same way. There is so much action and adventure this book keeps you wanting more so that you can see what will happen next. I found myself wanting to chew my nails not only because of the action but in between reading so that I could get back to it! Rachel Caine puts a new spin on a Zombie like story line that totally keeps you engrossed while in some parts you can't believe that somethings were actually happening. I can't wait until the next book comes out so that we can continue the Bryn Davis story and find out what she will get into next!

    Fast paced exciting and a tad of freaky horror. Loved it.

    Better than Working Stiff. I cant wait for the next book in the series.

    Found this second installment to be a complete disappointment when compared to the first book. The first book was so good so I don't understand why this one had to be so bad. It got much more violent and I found the constant torment, not to mention torture, of the main character to become frustrating. Everything about this book was disturbing. And the end was the icing on the cake.  Don't waste your time on this one.
