A secret government agency has developed a drug called Revive that can bring people back from the dead, and Daisy Appleby, a test subject, has been Revived five times in fifteen years. Daisy takes extraordinary risks, knowing that she can beat death, but each new death also means a new name, a new city, and a new life. When she meets Matt McKean, Daisy begins to question the moral implications of Revive, and as she discovers the agency’s true goals, she realizes she’s at the center of something much larger—and more sinister—than she ever imagined.
I knew I was going to adore this book from the beginning. I absolutely loved Cat’s debut novel Forgotten. I can say without hesitation that Cat Patrick is one of the most original YA authors out there. Forgotten was a mind-bending read and I’m saying this in a good way. Revived was equally amazing!
What I like most about Revived is the story line flow. I finished this book in 2 days. It was that good. I loved the idea behind Revived. I’ve never read anything like it and Patrick’s writing made it an easy read. The book has a nice opening. You get sucked in from page one and after that, is really hard to put the book down.
This book is not only about a drug that brings people back from death, is much more than that. The relationships are amazingly well developed. You can’t help but fall in love with every single character. I think Megan and Audrey were my favorites but I still love Daisy and Matt. As you can see is hard to pick a favorite character in this book. Be prepared, I went trough my arsenal of emotions while reading Revived.
