I liked this 2nd volume more than the first. Probably because it expanded beyond Forever and let us see some of how the "waste" live. it also gave us some back history on Forever and how she's struggling with the message that her family is not her family and that is not her father. She keeps looking back at when she was little and her interaction with her trainer and her "father".
I wasn't able to get the 2nd volume I had to actually take out Lazarus The First Collection. Which is Volume One & Two together. So I got to see all the neat maps and the history of the Families that are in the back of that collection. it really adds to the story line.
