“If you’re looking for something different and not-so-traditional in the zombie/horror genre, look no further than Revived.” – Jazzy book reviews
“To call this a zombie story […] would be a great disservice because it is so much more–allegory, modern-day parable, and just plain fun.” – author E. W. Abernathy
REVIVED by Ernesto Pavan is NOT, I repeat NOT your typical slobbering, lumbering zombie tale. Instead, you will find humor, attitude, snark and the true meaning of friendship, loyalties and even love. – Tome Tender
Violet is an awesome narrator and she is bold and sarcastic, but not afraid to show feelings as well, I love it! – BiteIntoBooks
When I first started this book I didn’t know if I was going to like it, but it really grabbed me. You see shows and movies all the time about zombies, but you never see their point of view. This book gives them a story of their own and it makes for a very good and interesting read. I loved the characters. While they have this fictional virus, since it is a fictional book, the characters are all very real. They have feelings and are faced with an impossible future. Also Violet was very funny at times in a weird sarcastic way and I loved her. – Boundless Books Reviews
For deadpan snark queen Violet Sharpe, death is not the end.
If you think life sucks, wait until after you’re dead. After finding out she’s contracted porthmeos, a nasty parasite, Violet is faced with a choice: either meet her end before her thirtieth birthday, or become one of the Revived, which is the politically correct word for… well, a zombie.
But the challenges of her new un-life are way worse than she thought. As part of a new minority, she faces discrimination and hatred, not to mention a laundry list of physical limitations and the looming ghost of depression. Can she meet these challenges with her usual strength and dark humor? Or is being Revived a fate worse than death?
