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.

And when some of the members of a support group for Returne addicts suddenly disappear, Bryn begins to wonder 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…

TWO WEEKS NOTICE was just as good if not better then WORKING STIFF. Bryn seems to be settling into her new life as best as she can. Bryn has her friends working to keep her non dependent on the government to stay alive but not all the Returne addicts are that lucky and now they are disappearing. The government contacts Bryn to help them once again and she has no choice but to go with it.

Most people don't have to dodge assassin at every turn but Bryn isn't your normal everyday gal. She has been through a lot and continues to get knocked down but she keeps getting up. I didn't think Bryn and Patrick were that much alike in the beginning of book 1 but they really do complement each other and I like seeing them together and watching their relationship progress. Joe is awesome, He is hilarious, loyal and always there to lend a hand.  I really enjoy most of the characters in the Revivalist series, some a lot more then others but they all bring something extra to the table. There was a lot going on in TWO WEEKS NOTICE and a lot is revealed. Everything seems to be stepped up a notch. Emotions are high and situations are intense. Plenty of action and suspense.


The ending? WOW I was on the edge of my seat screaming at the characters and wondering how the heck I didn't see that coming. The newest situation that Bryn finds herself in at the end is definitely another game changer that I'm not going to miss reading about it in book 3.
I gave it 5/5 stars

  1. I had wondered about whether to follow the series after reading book 1. I liked the book but the dead heroine concept was something of a eew factor, especially when she is left to rot at one point. Definitely will look for it now.

I am temporarily turning on word verification because of the 30+ spammer comments a day UFI is currently receiving. Hopefully having it on for a few days will make that go down but Im sorry for the extra step you will need to take in the meantime. Thanks for stopping by =)
