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.

First Thought when Finished: OH MY Two Week's Notice was such a good listen! I am so glad I had Terminated ready to go when I finished.
Overall Thoughts: I have pretty much devoured this series back to back. Two Weeks Notice did exactly what the middle book in a trilogy should do: advance the story. We got more action, romance, back story, and emotion. Middle books should always be the "meat" of the trilogy and this one delivered. Bryn (the leading lady) is probably one of my favorite characters in Urban Fantasy. She is kick ass but mostly she is just dealing with the hand that she has been dealt. I tend to admire the leading ladies that are "human" about their circumstances. The rest of the cast of characters are great too. My favorite thing about Rachel Caine is she writes characters that I care about and want to root for! The Revivalist series though is probably my favorite!
Narrated By Julia Whelan /Length: 9 hrs and 52 mins
Julia does a fantastic job with Bryn and the rest of the characters in this series. Her pacing and rhythm are very well done. She also has one of those voices that you can listen to on higher speeds and it doesn't distort at all. Overall very well done.
Final Thoughts: I love this series!
Late twenties, mother of 2 love paranormal fantasy and Greek mythology
Part of my top 10 favorite series (and I am EXTREMELY well read)
When the company started killing all the employees and bringing them back to blackmail them it was just like...a car wreck so awful but you can't stop looking at it I like how Rachel Caine wasn't afraid to tell the "ugly" parts in detail most authors skim over that
Couldn't say it was just one crazy ride
I was upset to think that they had repeatedly raped and killed and revived her sister very gruesome to think about
I've not read the print version
My life as a White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland
It's the only other book with female zombie as the lead character that I've read!
Bring on book 3!
Nerdgirl who loves to read and listen during a nasty 2 hour daily commute. Mostly listen to intelligent stories to escape road rage - love s
Rachel Caine's Bryn Davis is tough, smart, damn near indestructible and just a little bit broken. I stopped listening to another book as soon as this came available because I just love the series. I could not wait to find out what happened to Bryn. This book has action, romance, thrills and everything you could ask for. The concept is so creative and unlike other paranormal books. Bryn is not alive, not dead and not a zombie.
Ms. Caine created a world that works - not too far out there and just close enough to reality to be believable. Julia Whelan is a fabulous narrator.
Just one more thing - Audible please don't make me wait so long for the next installment to come out on audio!! I am impatient!
