Revived – My Review!!
I entered a brave new world for me with Revived (Snoqualmie Valley Sasquatch Book 1). I’ve read books about sparkly vampires, regular vampires, zombies, and werewolves, but this was my first foray into Sasquatches. The book pleasantly surprised me, though!
Synopsis (from the author): When a mysterious friend reappears in the lives of cousins Hannah and Jenna, a haunting past is revived. Tragic loss and prejudices lead to a search for answers about ancient myths that thrive in the Snoqualmie Valley of Washington State.
Does modern science hold the key, or does the truth lie in something supernatural? Heartbreak and hope encourage an unlikely romance while drawing out the darkness of unexpected enemies.
Can the strength of the cousins’ bond protect them from a fearful future?
What I liked: Who knew Sasquatches had such abilities? Super speed, the ability to disguise themselves, and a barrier between the human world and their own made this a cool story. The tragedy connecting Hannah, Jenna, and Adam provided a great background. In addition, the romance that blossomed between Adam and… oh wait, that might be a spoiler!
With good writing and a story that moved along at a nice pace, the book had enough interesting twists to keep me entertained. The family interaction among the Sasquatch tribe was pretty cool, too!
What I didn’t like: Despite how well written the book was, I had a hard time relating to the characters. Maybe it was due to the almost human (though hairy) Sasquatches, but I had a little trouble getting into the story.
Overall impression: I liked the story and it moved along quite nicely. The tragic background of the tale, the interaction among the characters, and the possibilities alluded to for subsequent books make Revived a book to consider. I recommend it to anyone who likes paranormal romance and Sasquatches!
My rating: 4 Stars
