I mean... It was alright, but not at all what I expected. I thought that there would be more action and conspiracy. But 80% of the book was about teenage drama and Reese not being able to choose between Amber and David. I actually quite enjoyed this aspect of the book. The characters were interesting to follow and I will always remember them as my dumb babies. I'm kinda glad I finished this series. ( )

I am so pleased with the unconventional resolution of the love triangle. I think this book also worked better for me than the first one in the series because the aliens reveal irritated me there, but by the time I began reading this book I'd reconciled myself to it. This book is really an unfolding of the problems set up in the first one. ( )

This is the sequel to Adaptation. The book where David, Reese, and Amber were introduced. We pick up in this book just where Adaptation ended. David and Reese trying to tell the world what happened to them, how they're changed. It doesn't go well.

Actually a whole lot of things don't go very well for any of the three teens in this book. It starts with the impromptu press conference cut short by Men in Black, then there's lots of questions asked about everything in the narrative, and we the reader get a lot of the answers that we were asking after the first book. About the Imria, and the government, not to mention everything in between and there are a ton of greys in between the two sides.

We also get to meet more Imrians other than Dr. Brand and Amber. Their spokesman, a liason, and my favorite Imrian character, Eres, a teacher (or Ummi in the Imria language) that winds up working with both David and Reese to see if they can get control of their adaptations.

Unfortunately there were some parts of the story I didn't like also. I still can't stand David, and Reese still got on my nerves half the time. I still think that Julian is the best character in the story, and Amber grew on me a lot (in a good way) in this book.

I also thought that the book was too mainstream teen. What I liked about Lo's other books, Ash and Huntress was that while they were very obviously sold towards teens they didn't seem like prototypical teen books. There was a depth to them that is usually seen in the adult books of the genre. In Inheritance it all just seemed forced and just so teen angsty. And don't get me started on the David/Reese/Amber stuff. I think I get what Lo was trying to go for, but every scene which touched on that love triangle I had to grit my teeth through. and while I didn't hate the ending, it also didn't seem to mesh with the rest of the book. I liked the first book in this series a lot. I just wish that I'd liked the second book as much. ( )

Fantastic story, great characters

A wonderful story, full of twists and turns and lots and lots of sweetness. Amber Gray is one of my favorite characters in a long while, and Reese isn't far behind. ( )

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales

Quick & Dirty: Two girls and a guy….plus aliens!

Opening Sentence: “The triangular spaceship hovered motionless in the sky above Resse Holloway’s house, as inscrutable as a blackhole.”

The Review:

Reese, David and Amber are back again in this conclusion to Adaptation. Reese is still struggling to come to terms with Amber’s betrayal, her sexuality and her new abilities as an adapted human hybrid. David is struggling with the adjustment and his relationship with Reese. Amber is just avoiding them all.

I think some interesting questions were answered in this book. The Imrian’s have been to Earth more than once, and well some things that are just better read. However, for the most part, I felt like the main focus of this book was Reese’s sexuality and her relationships with Amber and David. Which I could tell you how that would end, but why spoil the fun.

The rest of the storyline felt thrown in and rushed. The science fiction was compelling and interesting, there just wasn’t enough of it. I really thought it was interesting as their abilities began to unfold and they became more comfortable with them and themselves. This almost feels like a coming of age story with aliens…but I did dig David, Reese and Amber and I liked seeing them grow and become stronger, better people.

On the whole as you can probably tell, I wasn’t blown away by the book. I thought the series was good overall and different. Aliens with bird connections and creating hybrids, very interesting concepts. Execution for me personally fell a little short. I don’t care about her sexuality, but honestly it seemed to be the main theme and larger storyline. Everything else felt like a distant second. Which there is nothing wrong with that, but it just sent mixed signals. Is this is a coming of age story or science fiction?

I don’t want to seem if I am tearing down the book, it was good. The writing is excellent, the concepts are fresh and exciting. It just didn’t completely work for me.

Notable Scene:

“He blew some smoke away from her. “This adaptation thing that the Imria are working on could change everything. It’s amazing. Think about what this world would be like if human beings could really do this shared consciousness thing.” He spoke with a rising intensity, his body bending toward her as he gestured with his cigarette. “Do you know why people hate each other? Because they don’t understand each other. But if we could really know how other people feel–really know it– all that would change. It would bring humans to the next level of evolution!” Julian’s fierce belief in the adaptation procedure made Reese uncomfortable.”

FTC Advisory: Little Brown Books for Young Readers provided me with a copy of Inheritance. No goody bags, sponsorships, “material connections,” or bribes were exchanged for my review. ( )

We care not how trifling a character may be -- let it be the mere inflection of the angle of the jaw, the manner in which an insect's wing is folded, whether the skin be covered by hair or feathers -- if it prevail throughout many and different species, especially those having very different habits of life, it assumes high value; for we can account for its presence in so many forms with such different habits, only by inheritance from a common parent.
