Having a disabled person as the main character was a plus. I love it when authors take a chance with something other than perfect people and let us see characters who are different.
Still, the first half of the book took place in two rooms. THAT was boring! Sure we needed to get to know our characters' thoughts but there had to be another way to do that.
Towards the end, things picked up and felt more like the first book. Knuckle were whitened, nails were bitten. And I was praying that there would be no cliffhanger. And there wasn't. The book left you in a safe enough place but you knew there was more that needed to be done. Luckily, I had book three lined up and took off with that one!
Something I need to add here is another original idea of these three books is the moral dilemma similar to abortion or capital punishment. What if we were forced to give up our organs to those we match who are dying? This book takes further into what if by being forced we become disabled or otherwise harmed? Who is held responsible? I love books that make you think and this series does do that while presenting well-developed characters and lots of adventure.
Shoot, I just decided that I need to raise this from three to four stars, just due to my own review. I will remember this series long into the future that hopefully doesn't have the dilemmas presented here.
The author has continued the saga begun in Life First and created a few tale of mystery and adventure. I honestly liked this book much better then the first because there was more drama to it (while book one seemed to mostly just take place in a court room).
The errors and punctuation quirks weren’t frequent or distracting enough to detract from the story, and the writing was good.
Susan’s first few chapters really drew me in, and the story kept me reading. I finished it faster than any other book I’ve read recently, which is always a good sign with me.
Though Rob was a little too perfect, I really enjoyed seeing the gray areas within the characters of Dr. Grant and Dr. Patricia Donnelly.
Second Life is an enjoyable book, with some great tension, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes their dystopian seasoned with a lot of romance.
Spoilers to Life First to follow:
Second Life, rather than following Life First's primary character Kelsey, it follows although secondary equally important character Susan. Susan and Kelsey are the best of friends, and owes her life to Kelsey. As a result, Susan risks her life in Life First to rescue Kelsey from the holding facility at which is destined to die. In Second Life, however Susan, having risked her own self to rescue Kelsey now faces her own trouble. The FoSS with Life First mentality may not be quite as Susan may have previously believed, that being said her life is forever changed by the decision she made in Life First. We also have a chance to catch up with Kelsey, although she is not center stage in this story, her life is so intertwined with Susan that it is a vital component of the storyline.
Second Life is a riveting adventure with twist and turns you would not believe. You would be surprised at what happens to Susan and how she maneuvers through her life while being held by FOSS against her will. At the beginning of the book, FOSS promises to fix Susan's legs, but will they?
In the meanwhile, Kelsey was feeling stress and regret, wondering where her best friend Susan was. No one had seen her since Kelsey' s escape. Was Susan alive or dead? It is a challenge for Kelsey and Luke to stay in her new country, Peoria, because there is a bounty on Kelsey.
Dr. Grant is a practicing Ob/Gyn in Peoria & FOSS. Dr. Grant had always been a good friend and now a doctor to Kelsey but with all the events happening we find out if he is a friend or foe.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I gave it a five star because it kept my interest from beginning to the end.
