This review may contain spoilers for those who haven’t read Working Stiff (Revivalist #1) yet.
After reading Working Stiff I needed to get some time away from these series. I wasn’t exactly sure what to think. Yes, it was nice, but was it good enough to keep reading?
What the book is about
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…
What I think about the book
Even though I gave both Working Stiff and Two Weeks’ Notice 4 stars, I definitely thought the second novel was way better than the first. After a certain point I just couldn’t put it down anymore and I didn’t really have that same feeling while reading the first part of the series.
Bryn is still ‘dead’ or at least not completely alive, but I got over that fact and that made me enjoy the book that much more. The book is full of action and kick ass fights and Bryn certainly knows how to handle herself. She doesn’t have to fight alone, as she’s got her own ‘army’ of cool men by her side. Action and fights aren’t the only thrill in this part of the series. There are plenty of plot-twists that will keep you entertained as well.
So, even though Bryn is still officially the owner of a funeral home, she is not spending a lot of time there. Which is good, because those parts are not nearly as interesting as others. In this novel I actually started to like Bryn, Patrick and Joe a lot and I cannot wait for the next book in the series.
