145) Two Weeks' Notice by Rachel Caine

The Blurb :

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…

My Thoughts :

Rachel Caine is a brilliant storyteller and her latest series titled "Revivalist" is yet again another amazing concept. The first book in the series, Working Stiff, showed that there are more ideas out there. Nobody needs to rehash the old stories because it is possible to come up with something totally new and impressive. Book two, Two Weeks' Notice, only continues to prove that Rachel Caine is special and a pioneer in the Paranormal Urban Fantasy genre.

Despite pre-ordering this book and getting a copy as soon as it was released, I didn't get around to reading it till this week. It has been a while since I read the first book but the originality of the story meant that I didn't need any reminding of what happened last time. I got straight into the story and had no problems keeping up with the events that were taking place.

The plot this time around was sometimes slightly complicated with twists and turns taking place that shocked and amazed. Of course the story was only more and more addictive because of the surprising amount of action and information that Bryn was dealing with. I breezed through the first half of the book wondering what could come next as even more wow factors came into effect. Superb.

I hate giving away what happens in a book and won't go into details but the way things are developing in this series is seriously mind blowing. Just as I thought everything was over and done with and Bryn could get back to a quiet 'Death' something came along and spun everything around. I am loving it!

Any fans of Rachel Caine will know how compelling and amazing her books are. This series is a must read for any fans and will be staying on my must read list. Anyone who hasn't already read any books by this author should really get some. This twist on zombies is pure art and nothing like you could expect. A great job and a super read. Please give us more,more and more!
