Revived by Ernesto Pavan

Revived by [Pavan, Ernesto]
For deadpan snark queen Violet Sharpe, death is not the end.

If you think life sucks, wait until after you're dead. After finding out she's contracted porthmeos, a nasty parasite, Violet is faced with a choice: either meet her end before her thirtieth birthday, or become one of the Revived, which is the politically correct word for... well, a zombie.

But the challenges of her new un-life are way worse than she thought. As part of a new minority, she faces discrimination and hatred, not to mention a laundry list of physical limitations and the looming ghost of depression. Can she meet these challenges with her usual strength and dark humor? Or is being Revived a fate worse than death?For deadpan snark queen Violet Sharpe, death is not the end.
Review: This is a zombie story with a difference, and I absolutely loved it! It isn't filled with gore and violence, it's more a dark comedy that examines society in a unique way.  Vi choses a life of the undead rather than death, and is soon faced with a life that isn't what she thought it would be...in a lot of ways it's very relatable. The unexpected ending makes the book worth reading in itself!
