Today at Kirkus: A Review of Lazarus One
From the post:
In the future, the world is split not into countries, but fiefdoms controlled by the Families. The human population is divided into three segments: Family, who control everything, Serfs who have the skills and intelligence necessary to serve and be useful to the Family, and the Waste, who serve no purpose at all. Each Family has one member who is trained to be something more. Warrior, messenger, protector, envoy – whatever the situation calls for, the Family Lazarus is there to further the Family’s ends, and protect them from all threats, internal and external. The Lazarus can be shot, cut, beaten, blown up, take an enormous about of damage, and walk away – eventually. Their bodies can heal themselves, bones can reset and nit, cuts close, bruises fade. A Lazarus is nearly indestructible.
