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?

 Revived by Ernesto Pavan

RevivedSo, you think you know all there is about Zombies? You probably aren’t even close, unless you have met Violet and walked in her world. Violet’s world was about to come to that proverbial fork in the road when she contracted porthmeos, a fatal parasite. In Violet’s world, you could: A) die or B) become a Revived, a dead person walking, a zombie. Sure, your body parts were easily ruined or falling off, but mortuary science could repair the damage, makeup could cover the pale pallor and mock meat could feed you. Not too bad, right? Wrong…

The Revived are the latest minority, the ones everyone avoided, discriminated against and Violet’s sharp tongue could get her into big trouble. Could there be a support group for the Revived? Would they find a bond in other undead beings? Is it possible that they have something to add to the world, in spite of their undeadness?

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. Violet is priceless, a lesbian whose girlfriend had walked on her, she had some bitterness, okay, maybe more than bitterness, but when a live reporter tried to bury the good her group of zombies were trying to do, Violet finally got that she may be a little tough to live with and became a much more compassionate person after her undeath than she was in life!

Ernesto Pavan has a truly original tale to tell, trust me, you have NOT read anything as informative as his take on the entire zombie scene. There is no gore, no zombie attacks, but there is pure entertainment that reads fast, twists around a bit and was definitely hard to put down! What's not to love about a zombie with attitude?

I received this copy from Ernesto Pavan in exchange for my honest and voluntary review.
