As a little girl, Daisy Appleby was killed in a school bus crash. Moments after the accident, she was brought back to life.

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.
After seeing the US cover for Revived I was expecting quite an action packed paranormal story with a dystopian feel, but what I got however was a little different to what I originally imagined, however it was just as amazing as I thought it would be!
Daisy is pretty cool as she co-authors a blog, likes to read and overall is a unique character. Matt is gorgeous; he’s sweet and caring and lovely. Cat Patrick blew us away with Luke from Forgotten and she hasn’t let us down with this newest addition. All the characters were amazing but the one who stood out to me and shined in this book the most was hands down, Audrey. Wow. Cat has done an incredible job fleshing her out and not only that but she’s amazingly well written too! Fun, sweet and one of a kind, she broke my heart big time.
Revived is the kind of book you want to take slow, drag out because you don’t want the story to finish but at the same time you can’t stop reading the pages quick enough because you need to know what’s going to happen next.
Also, “God” was creepy... *runs away and hides*
As it the neared the end, the action and suspense was off the radar and had me in a page flipping frenzy, scared, worried, needing to find out what was around the corner!
If your looking for a lighter paranormal with that gorgeous contemporary vibe and style of writing, you’ve hit the nail on the head with Revived!
The characters are amazing, the story simply hooking and the pace perfection. Cat Patrick has done it again!

    I've really been looking forward to this one and I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it :]

  3. Ooooh, Becca, LOVE that you loved this so much! I've heard a few mixed reviews, but WOW. Yah, I also got the impresson from the US cover that it was all going to be super-intense mystery and thriller and dystopian style thing? Sounds amazing anyway :D
