Product Description

Susan Harper is being held captive by her government, with no clue why. She knows she helped a fugitive escape and that she's being constantly prodded by doctors, but her please for answers to why she's been locked away fall on deaf ears.

As the normally feisty Susan's hopes of freedom dwindle, a mysterious stranger sneaks into her room and promises to help. Mystery man Rob grows close to Susan as he tries to engineer her escape, without raising the suspicion of the government holing her. While Rob had hoped he had time on his side in helping Susan get away from the government, all that changes when the duo discovers the truth behind Susan's captivity. They must speed up their plan to save her.

Susan and Rob will need more than passion for each other and their wits to succeed. They will need help from old friends, including Kelsey Reed. Susan helped Kelsey start a second life in book one of this series. Will Susan get a second life of her own?

This is the second book in the Life First dystopian book series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Boring At First but Gets Better! Kudos for Using Disabled Main Character 26 May 2017
By darswords - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I found this second book to be slower and not nearly as exciting as the first book. But then how do you compete with emergency skydiving? I tried to be patient realizing we were getting to know other characters better.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better then Life First 28 July 2015
By mapleleafmanny - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
In this sequel, we find out how the story continues from Susan's pov. While the whole gang thought Susan would be released after Kelsey's escape, she's instead been captured and brought to a secluded compound. While she does appear to live luxuriously in her conditions, she also realizes she's a prisoner. However, when she hears the reason for her captivity, she needs to decide whether she still wants to escape or whether she will willingly stay. With so many people coming into her life and telling her an assortment of stories, who will she trust?
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).
4.0 out of 5 stars Good Dystopian Romance 16 September 2014
By Melinda - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed First Life, and also Second Life, the sequel. I would have preferred the book to center a little more heavily on the suspense and dystopian aspects, and a little less on the romance, but that’s mostly a personal preference. Still, I think the romance got in the way of the plot sometimes, and the arguments between Susan and Rob could have maybe been trimmed.

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.
4.0 out of 5 stars Follow up, but stands alone 9 January 2014

As many of you know I am a dystopian fiction fan, and Second Life (Life First 2) by RJ Crayton definitely fits the bill. Having enjoyed the Life First very much, being the first in the series, it set up the world of FoSS as you can see in my review linked above. That being said, Second Life was albeit did not contain the same level of action as the it's predecessor.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed this Trilogy from start to finish 28 January 2017
By ATXMomma - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this Trilogy from start to finish. The characters were quite well developed by the end of the series, without any of their features feeling trite. I did not feel like this series was predictable, which made for a welcome adventure! This series, as a dystopian fantasy, also offered a lot to ponder.
