Book Two: Lift last edited by jazz1987 on 10/14/18 10:50AM View full history

The second story arc in the New York Times bestselling series. Forever uncovers rebellion brewing in LA, and the Barrets, a family of "Waste," undertake a 500-mile journey to Denver in the hope that one of their family will be noticed by the Carlyles and "lifted" to Serf status.

Back Blurb

The world now lies divided not amongst political or geographic boundaries but amongst financial ones.

Wealth is power, and that power rests with only a handful of Families. Those few who provide a service for their ruling Family are cared for, lifted to the status of Serf, guaranteed a level of comfort and care for themselves and their loved ones.

All others are Waste.

Joe and Bobbie Barret are Waste, who have struggled for years to raise their children under the eyes of the Carlyle Family. When their home is destroyed, their only hope for survival lies with Lift Selection, five hundred miles away in the city of Denver.

And in Los Angeles, Forever Carlyle, the genetically engineered Lazarus of her Family, struggles with deception, betrayal and acts of terror perpetuated by a group known as The Free.

Prepare to be tested.
