Stephen King presents “a fresh adrenaline rush of terror” (People) in this electrifying #1 New York Times bestseller!

The new minister came to Harlow, Maine, when Jamie Morton was a boy doing battle with his toy army men on the front lawn. The young Reverend Charles Jacobs and his beautiful wife brought new life to the local church and captivated their congregation. But with Jamie, he shares a secret obsession—a draw so powerful, it would have profound consequences five decades after the shattering tragedy that turned the preacher against God, and long after his final, scathing sermon. Now Jamie, a nomadic rock guitarist hooked on heroin, meets Charles Jacobs again. And when their bond becomes a pact beyond even the Devil’s devising, Jamie discovers that the word revival has many meanings…. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “A fresh adrenaline rush of terror from Stephen King…Maine, rock and roll, engaging characters, and a pounding build to a grisly end–this is vintage King.”

    People

  • Revival is a dark and haunting tale about old-time religion and one man’s search for a mythic ‘secret electricity.’ At the same time it’s an emotional and spectacular coming-of-age tale that spans fifty years of horrific tragedy and human redemption…Revival is often heartfelt, as characters deal with painful loss, and the author invests you wholly in the separate journeys of Jamie and Charlie as they arrive at their inevitable crossroads and a voltaic endgame.”

    USA Today

  • Revival finds King writing with the infectious glee that has always been at the heart of his popular success…Older and wiser each time he writes, Mr. King has moved on from the physical fear that haunted him after he was struck by a van while out walking to a more metaphysical, universal terror. He writes about things so inevitable that he speaks to us all.”

    New York Times

  • “Never mind that King’s prose can sometimes lapse into laughable cliché – ‘like water through a sieve’? Really? – there is absolutely no better storyteller than Stephen King, who keeps us up at night, with fear and fascination and admiration.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “This spellbinding supernatural thriller from MWA Grand Master King chronicles one man’s efforts to, as narrator Jamie Morton phrases it, ‘tap into the secrets of the universe’…King is a master at invoking the supernatural through the powerful emotions of his characters, and his depiction of Jacobs as a man unhinged by grief but driven by insatiable scientific curiosity is as believable as it is frightening. The novel’s ending—one of King’s best—stuns like lightning.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “In the kind of loose, garrulous voice that has marked his last decade, King spins the yarn of Jamie Morton and Reverend Charles Jacobs, whose lives wretchedly intertwine for fifty years…The book’s engine is powered by high-octane dread, and few fuels run stronger.”

    Booklist

  • “David Morse…does his best to keep the story moving. Morse is such a good performer that the listener has no problem knowing who is speaking at any time, whether it’s a young boy, an old man, or a charlatan suffering from a minor stroke.”
