The exciting second novel by Seth Patrick, author of The Reviver.
Jonah Miller, reviver. Able to wake the recently dead for testimony that is accepted in courts worldwide. The use of revivers has long been a routine part of police investigation.

Jonah is still recovering from the injuries received after unearthing the existence of a creature bent on terrible destruction, a creature defeated at the cost of many lives.

The resolution of the concepts and issues introduced in the first novel are wrapped up with clarity, as is the ends ( such as they are ) of the characters. All this was done very skillfully and suspensefully.
I believe this was the first of his performances I have listened to, but it was exquisite. I am very impressed by his tone, pacing and eloquence, and scored this to reflect that.
The Rise scenes are impressive.
Get the series, and listen to them in ORDER and ENJOY!
