"Caine's second series entry continues to raise the bar for urban fantasy. Bypassing the wisecracking prose of similar series, it deals realistically and compassionately with both the undead and the dead and achieves depth in the process." ---Library Journal Starred Review --This text refers to the Digital edition.
About the Author
Rachel Caine is the author of more than twenty novels, including the "Weather Warden" series. She was born at White Sands Missile Range, which people who know her say explains a lot. She has been an accountant, a professional musician, and an insurance investigator, and still carries on a secret identity in the corporate world. She and her husband, fantasy artist R. Cat Conrad, live in Texas with their iguanas, Popeye and Darwin; a mali uromastyx named (appropriately) O’Malley; and a leopard tortoise named Shelley (for the poet, of course).

Now some of the revived have gone missing and Bryn seems is finding herself right in the middle of the intrigue. First up is a chance to save her sister Annie and then she is given a job by the newly government run Pharmadene corporation. What she finds during the course of both of these events leads to more conspiracies and danger than she faced in the previous novel "Working Stiff." Now there is a ton of action in this book. Far more than I remember being in the first installment. All of the scenes are tense and well-written.
The parts I actually enjoyed the most are those that focused on Bryn digging up clues and relying on her friends and colleagues for their assistance in her adventures. I like reading about the things that happen in the funeral home where Bryn works. You can tell Ms. Caine has done her research on the funeral business. I thought the portions of the story involving the dogs in Bryn's life was also entertaining and cute. All these scenes I favor have one thing in common. They show us more about who Bryn is as a character and how she relates to and needs other people. It makes her human; it makes her alive.
Both books in this series are solid, exciting, well-written urban fantasy/paranormal novels. These almost have more of a thriller feel to them as well. I can only say that for some reason I don't seem to read them as quickly or get as excited by them as I do with Caine's other novels. It is really something I have thought about for awhile and can't seem to put into words. I like them but I just don't love them. This second installment though is better than the first so if the third book keeps with this trend, I may end up being converted. As it stands right now I would still be more than willing to continue reading this series

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!
