The Fox Inheritance Review

294 pages

Once there were three. Three friends who loved each other—Jenna, Locke, and Kara. And after a terrible accident destroyed their bodies, their three minds were kept alive, spinning in a digital netherworld. Even in that disembodied nightmare, they were still together. At least at first. When Jenna disappeared, Locke and Kara had to go on without her. Decades passed, and then centuries. Two-hundred-and-sixty years later, they have been released at last. Given new, perfect bodies, Locke and Kara awaken to a world they know nothing about, where everyone they once knew and loved is long dead. Everyone except Jenna Fox.

As the continuation to Jenna Fox's story this is pretty good. I did wonder what had happened to Locke and Kara and this book definitely answers some questions. Locke seems to be a sweet guy who lets himself be manipulated by Kara even when he knows she's wrong. Kara has changed a lot from the girl that Jenna and Locke knew and her mind has been twisted from the years in isolation. Jenna has also changed a lot especially after being alive for over 200 years. I loved seeing how Jenna's life had changed. I feel like the climax of this book fell a little flat. I waited for a confrontation between Kara and Jenna an it wasn't as exciting as I thought it should be. Other than that I would only recommend reading this novel if you've read the first book.
