For a long time, Locke and Kara had only each other in the dark. Then they came out of the dark and were given new bodies and pampered on an isolated estate. However, is this really living? They’re treated like experiments, and everyone they ever knew and loved are dead. Everyone that is, except for Jenna Fox.
I liked The Fox Inheritance, the sequel to Mary Pearson’s The Adoration of Jenna Fox. I had been curious to know more about Kara and Locke when I read the first book, and the book was still as fast-paced as the first one. However, I’m not sure I liked it as well as the first one. I did not feel like I had as much connection to either Locke or Kara; there was very little of the self-exploration inherent in the first one. With that lack of connection or knowledge of who they were before, I didn’t feel like I should care about them quite as much. That being said, I did start to care about Locke a bit more as the book progressed, but I never cared about Kara. Again, I would tie this back to the fact that I didn’t really know who she was before and did not have as much information to put the pieces together. If you’ve read the first one, definitely read the second, but it’s one I’d recommend as a stand-alone.
