Already addicted to the pharmaceutical drug that keeps her body from decomposing, Bryn has to stop a secretive group of rich and powerful investors from eliminating the existing Returné addicts altogether. To ensure their plan to launch a new, military-grade strain of nanotech, the investors’ undead assassin—who just happens to be the ex-wife of Bryn’s lover Patrick—is on the hunt for anyone that stands in their way.

And while Bryn’s allies aren’t about to go down without a fight, the secret she’s been keeping threatens to put those closest to her in even more danger.

First Thought when Finished: Terminated ended in a way that wrapped up the trilogy in the most perfect of ways! BRAVO! (Also there was a moment there that I was bit scared).

Overall Thoughts: YES YES YES! This is the way a series should end! There were tears, laughter, OMG moments, and “is she really going to do that? Say she isn’t going to do that” moments. I can’t really talk about the book without giving anything away so here is what you need to know before reading:

1)Do not read these out of order. There are only 3 so do yourself a favor and read the whole series.
2)You will need MULTIPLE Kleenexes unless you have a heart made of stone.
3)The end will surprise you. I don’t mind spoilers but try to read this one spoiler free.
4)Read even if you don’t like zombies. This isn’t a true zombie book but more like what the series title says: Revivalist (people who have been revived after death).

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated by Julia Whelan /Length 9 hrs and 52 mins

I sound like a broken record but Julia really did nail this narration. She was the Revivalist crew. You would not go wrong listening to these on audiobook.

Final Thought: Hands down my favorite series (so far) by Rachel Caine.

    Definitely agree that this is how a series should end (and NO DEAD DOGS!! I would have thrown the book across the room and into the fire if they’d killed off those precious pups. I’d grown attached). Love Rachel Caine. Love how she’s willing to take chances with her characters, put them through utter hell and have them come out better people.

    Now that Morganville is done with I should check out this series! Especially now that i know it ends with a bang. Ooh and Julia Whelan is the narrator- excellent!

    Babe can you believe I have yet to read Rachel Caine and heard so many good things about her writing style and story telling. Great review. I love it when a series ends and it is a 4 or 5 star read.

    P.S. I have been to tell you I love how you give your reviews.
