Revived is a YA novel with the supernatural, a bit of young love, and growing up mixed together.
I really enjoyed that the supernatural in this book was out of the box. Introducing something a little less mainstream in the sasquatch was a welcome change. I was impressed at the thought JM Northup put into what her sasquatches could and couldn’t do, as well as how these supernaturals might blend into the human world as well. My only quibble was that sometimes it felt a little too easy–though at the same time, it is easier to believe in a medical condition than the idea that someone is a supernatural creature.
I liked the characters a lot, though I did find them a little too agreeable and accepting of everything. It made it a bit hard to connect with them at times. Also, presenting the romance as foreseen in some way felt a little awkward to me personally.
Overall, it was a good story that fans of YA supernatural would enjoy. It flowed well and was something new supernaturally-speaking. ∞
