The Revivalist Series
From the best-selling author of the Morganville Vampire and the Weather Warden series comes this brand new series!
The first book in the Revivalist Series
What if death could be cured by a drug? What if you needed that drug every day ... or death would reclaim you? It’s not hypothetical to Bryn Davis. It’s her so-called life.
Bryn Davis is new on the job as a funeral director, but even she knows that once you’re dead, you ought to stay that way. But Fairview Mortuary has a hidden backroom business: resurrecting the dead for profit, at extortionate rates.
Discovering her boss’s secret may cost Bryn more than her life . . . it may just take away her death, too.
'If you're looking for a good adult Urban Fantasy book to get stuck into I definitely recommend reading Working Stiff! As a fan of Caine's Morganville Vampire series I had high expectations going into this and I'm happy to say it did not disappoint!...Bryn is definitely up there on my list of favourite heroines!Rachel Caine has a way with characters [and] I liked the concept of the story, it was definitely unique and there was never a dull moment. Even though Working Stiff is dark and gritty, Caine does add a nice dose of humour to help lighten the mood!'The Page Turner
'I absolutely adore Rachel Caine's books and I could read them all day every day. Working Stiff was definitely no exception. I really loved everything about it...Brilliant characters...fast paced action alongside slow, emotional moments that made for fantastic reading.'Books Glorious Books
'Working Stiff is most definitely an urban fantasy. And a damn good one at that...I am fast becoming a Rachel Caine fangirl. I have now read three of her books and I have devoured each and every one. She is a genius at creating delightfully ordinary characters and thoroughly unique stories which are easy to read with just a sprinkling of humour and plenty of energy. This is exactly what I look for when I look for my next good read and Working Stiff has it down to a tee....[It] shall be going on my ‘to re-read and recommend’ pile.'Once Upon a Time
'I absolutely loved this book - an original concept, realistic characters and an action-packed plot... I highly, highly recommended you read Working Stiff. One of the best urban fantasy books I've read all year.'Booking in Heels
