The world now lies divided not amongst political or geographic boundaries but amongst financial ones.
Wealth is power, and that power rests now with only a handful of Families. The few who provide a service for their ruling Family are cared for.
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 of survival lies with Lift Selection, five hundred miles away in the city of Denver.
And in Los Angeles, Forever Carlyle, the genetically-engineering Lazarus of her Family, struggles with deception, betrrayal, and acts of terror perpetuated by a group known as The Free.
Prepare to be tested.
