Following Reviver and Lost Souls, The Dead Road is the chilling conclusion to Seth Patrick’s Reviver Trilogy.
The series takes place in our world, but with a chilling twist: certain people have the ability to wake the recently deceased for testimony that is accepted in courts worldwide. The use of these so-called Revivers has long been a routine part of police investigation. But things are changing . . . something vast and dangerous is hiding in the dark, just waiting to wreak havoc on our world.
The Dead Road is where it all comes to an end - maybe literally.
Jonah Miller, Reviver. Able to wake the recently dead for testimony that is accepted in courts worldwide, the use of revivers has long been a routine part of police investigation. But now those who consider it blasphemy are in resurgence - well-funded and gaining ground, they threaten the work of Jonah and his colleagues in the Forensic Revival Service.
Jonah is still recovering from the injuries received after unearthing the existence of a creature bent on terrible destruction, a creature defeated at the cost of many lives. Then the discovery of a bizarrely mutilated corpse makes Jonah suspect that the victory was not as complete as it seemed, and that not all the evil was destroyed.
For in the darkness, shadows are waiting. And they are hungry...
