A page-turning tug-of-war between reformed rocker Jamie Morton and man of faith Charles Jacobs, "Revival" (King's second novel this year after spring's "Mr. Mercedes") fuses human drama with supernatural horror. As has become King's wont over the past decade, much of the tale wrestles with the idea of mortality.

The 67-year-old author has found the sweetness in aging, although his reflections upon growing older are always tinged with a little sadness and fear.
