First Thought when Finished: OH MY Two Week's Notice was such a good listen! I am so glad I had Terminated ready to go when I finished.
Overall Thoughts: I have pretty much devoured this series back to back. Two Weeks Notice did exactly what the middle book in a trilogy should do: advance the story. We got more action, romance, back story, and emotion. Middle books should always be the "meat" of the trilogy and this one delivered. Bryn (the leading lady) is probably one of my favorite characters in Urban Fantasy. She is kick ass but mostly she is just dealing with the hand that she has been dealt. I tend to admire the leading ladies that are "human" about their circumstances. The rest of the cast of characters are great too. My favorite thing about Rachel Caine is she writes characters that I care about and want to root for! The Revivalist series though is probably my favorite!
Narrated By Julia Whelan /Length: 9 hrs and 52 mins
Julia does a fantastic job with Bryn and the rest of the characters in this series. Her pacing and rhythm are very well done. She also has one of those voices that you can listen to on higher speeds and it doesn't distort at all. Overall very well done.
Final Thoughts: I love this series!

Issue(s) I Had:
I don’t understand why the revived people are being called Returne addicts. Addicts are people who can (if they choose to) stop doing something like drinking or drugs. But the revived NEED the Returne drug or they die. It’s like calling me an oxygen addict. I don’t get it.
Bryn is now working for the government in order to get her doses of Returne to stay “fresh”. But little does the government know, she has her own private supplier. The crazy ex-FBI mad scientist, Manny is trying to tweak Returne so that Bryn and the revived do not have to get their supply from the government.
While Bryn works her first assignment for the government she is trying to find her sister, Annie that was also killed and revived in Working Stiff. But Bryn is not alone; Joe is still working for Bryn at the funeral home and doubling as her back/bodyguard. And Bryn’s would be lover Patrick is sticking around to help.
Speaking of Patrick, a part of his past comes back to bite everyone on the ass this time around.
While the gang tries to work out the mystery and keep Bryn “alive” they find themselves getting into a much big and darker conspiracy than they ever thought was possible.
The narration is not the best but still very enjoyable. Whelan does a great job with Bryn and her male voices are believable.
A whole can of worms was opened at the end of Two Weeks’ Notice so it leaves me thinking that the Terminated, the 3rd book in the trilogy will have to be fast paced to get us to a conclusion.
