Try something new...
As I walked around my local library, browsing titles, I thought about what I tell my students...TRY SOMETHING NEW! I am however, guilty of not following my own advice. Even though I am (ahem) slightly beyond my teen years, I am still drawn to their shiny covers and angst filled pages.
Determined to make a change, I decided to stroll through the ADULT fiction. Blah, Blah, Blah. Nothing jumped out atd me except my old favorites like Patricia Briggs, Kim Harrison, and a few other which I devoured long ago. Besides that, I know nothing of adult fiction. Shame on me. I am walking by some amazing titles, I just have no idea where to start. I love a series. I love paranormal. So my question is to you, my savvy, sophisticated readers. Where do I start?

Working Stiff (Revivalist #1)
by, Rachel Caine
Bryn Davis knows working at Fairview Mortuary isn't the most glamorous career choice, but at least it offers stable employment--until she discovers her bosses using a drug that resurrects the clientele as part of an extortion racket. Now, Bryn faces being terminated--literally, and with extreme prejudice.
Wit the help of corporate double-agent Patrick McCallister, Bryn has a chance to take down the bigger problem--pharmaceutical company Pharmadene, which treats death as the ultimate corporate loyalty program. She'd better do it fast, before she becomes a zombie slave--a real working stiff. She'd be better off dead... (Summary from goodreads)
This new series by Rachel Caine took off with an interesting and at time gruesome beginning. Readers can expect suspence, moments of frustration, gore, and a blooming romance.
I found myself dedicated to the book and disappointed when it was over. There were some points where the storyline seemed to slow. I do realize however, that this allowed for world-building and character development.
I am curious about the next book in the series. The characters have more room to grow and challenges to face.

Elyse has done everything she can to protect her friends from The Council's reach. As long as they believe she's dead, she has time to rest and train for war. And war is inevitable. When Kara arrives with the news that Anna and Chloe have been captured, Elyse is faced with the realization that no one is safe until The Council is stopped and Christoph is destroyed. She doesn't need a prophecy to tell her to lead an army. Christoph has done the one thing that ensures she'll fight to the death. He's threatened the people she loves. It will take more than the words of an oracle to help them fight against the most powerful Descendant alive. To break The Council's oppression and rise up against a plot so many years in the making, Elyse will need to get dangerously close to her enemy. So close, in fact, she may not survive. My thoughts...
