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. [via GoodReads]
The Adoration of Jenna Fox was a phenomenal book! Have you read it, if not, please do so. It was amazing! Seriously. And while I found myself really looking forward to something else relating to Jenna – I think as a standalone book, Jenna Fox was perfect.
With that said, The Fox Inheritance, made me hopeful that we would once again hear from Jenna and learn more about her world. And that we did! To my surprise we also learned more about the fateful night of the accident and the outcome Locke and Kara.
Locke and Kara have been in a suspended state of endless darkness where the only thing that kept them sane was each other’s voices. Centuries after being forgotten on a shelf they are found by – what I would call – a mad scientist. Who, with personal ambition in mind, resurrects their mind downloads and brings Locke and Kara back to life. 260 years after their death they are once again in human form with only one thing recognizable in this ever-changed world…. Jenna Fox.
While I can’t say I loved this sequel, I can definitely say I was intrigued. I liked the way the author brings back all the same questions, doubts, issues that Jenna went through while also giving it a more drastic doom and gloom feel. While Jenna woke up shortly after her accident, Locke and Kara have lost everything and everyone they knew in their lives. I liked the character dynamics and the emotional turmoil the kids were facing.
