Review: Revived

Title: Revived

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.

Revived was a little creepy for me. It was a sci-fi book, which isn’t my forte. I don’t like the scientific books that have to do with weird medicines that bring people back to life. Other than the creepiness aspect of it, Revived had a good story line that kept you interested.

Her eyes, there just whoa… They capture your attention and keep you there. Then you notice the other things, like what is she pulling apart and the color of it, which is a very pretty color and matches her eyes.

Revived takes you a couple chapters to get. You have to figure out how she is still alive and all, which needs some explaining. After that everything is interesting and keeps you paying attention to what is going on. Plus there is romance! And you know I love romance! J The story line was well written and made grammatical sense and there were no spelling errors!

Daisy is awesome. She is brave, a little reckless, and a great actor. Those might not be the best qualities together, but they work for her. She is a super awesome agent, and she just makes sense for what she was raised to do. Then she meets Matt and Audrey, and her views on the world switch a little. Her journey is an interesting one and it was nice to see the changes in her.

Matt is pretty dang awesome! The older, handsome, caring brother is all Daisy can think about and I don’t see a problem in that. He cares so much about his sister and Daisy that it is so sweet. I loved Matt because you got to see a side of a boy you don’t usually get to see because they act all tough and invincible. Matt is anything but, and isn’t afraid to show it.

All in All:
Revived was a very new and interesting book, if you’re into sci-fi books, check this one out! 4 out of 5 tacos!
