Review: Revived by Cat Patrick

As romantic as intense as "Before I Fall". Revived is unmissable.

The world fades to nothing, and before I have the chance to think another thought...I'm dead.

My name is Daisy West and my whole life is a lie. I'm part of a programme to test a drug called Revive - a drug that brings people back from the dead. I have died five times. I've been Revived five times. With each revival comes a new name, a new town...a new life. But this time, I won't let myself die. This time, I've found a love that I can't let go of. This time, I'm going to make my life my own.


After reading Cat Patrick's forgotten I'd been excitedly waiting for Revived. While I didn't love this as much as forgotten I really did enjoy it.

Daisy has died many times since the age of 5. Each time she died she's had to pack up her life and move with the agents posing as her parents and start afresh. This has made it difficult for her to get close to any of her peers and made for quite a lonely life. After dying another time she moves again and meets Audrey and Matt and in the brother and sister pair she finds a set of best friends she has never had before and she quickly finds that that friendship is something she doesn't want to give up. I loved seeing Daisy develop those relationships for the first time and I loved the siblings she befriends.

As the story unfolds Daisy starts to question the morality behind the drug that has kept bringing her back from the dead time and time again. I really enjoyed finding out more behind the government agency that has been developing Revive and their reasons for doing so. The last section of the book has a really exciting twist as the story throws out several dark revelations about the drug and the people behind it.

All in all an exciting read which I very much enjoyed.


This book has been out for a while but I never got a chance to read it.
