Contains Revival #6-11"

Angie's Review:

A while back I reviewed the first volume of this series, and I loved it. Now I'm taking a look at the next chapter, and a lot of interesting things have happened in Wasau since we left. The quarantine of the town is getting a little testy. There are growing numbers of people who want into the town, thinking that the revivers are a miracle and that if they can get inside the revival zone, they too can have eternal life. Naturally, the police officers trying to enforce the perimeter are starting to have concerns about potential riots. Within the town, things are no better. There are murders to investigate, secret reviver meetings in church basements, and now it appears that someone has started an organ harvest of reviver parts. That's right, undead, undying humans are being cut up, and allowed to regenerate and cut up again, all to feed a demand on the outside of the perimeter. That's messed up. And it may not be safe, either. There's a quarantine for a reason.

On top of all of this, there are rumors that the government is going to start moving the revivers to internment camps soon- for the safety of the public. But anyone attempting to enforce a move like that may come to regret it, because some of the revivers are growing increasingly...unstable and violent. That includes Dana's sister, Em. She's not someone I'd mess with if I knew what was good for me.

All in all, it's pretty exciting and I am still loving this series. I do wish we'd seen a bit more of the mysterious alien-demon-ghost thing in the woods, though. We still don't know much about what that thing is and what it has to do with what is happening to the town. Hopefully we'll know more soon.
