    1. real review added, but it's after all the maggie pictures because nobody puts maggie in the cornermaggie!! what are you up to??i reading the book!!maggie, i hate to break it to you, but that's book two, and i know you haven't read book one. also - upside-down, dude.i hate you - you're not even my real mom!!! *sulk*3.5 stars. possible spoilers for book 1 - i don't know how much of the basic plot of this series is known to those who haven't read it.3.5 is one of those "me-ratings," but i definitel [...]

    2. A stunning followup to ADAPTATION. Without being all spoilery all over the place, INHERITANCE plunges into some fascinating and complex issues re:sex, gender, and relationships that make it a delicious read well beyond the terrific story. My admiration for Malinda Lo has just increased by like 2,389%.

    3. SPOILERS!I wanted so badly to like this book I really likedAdaptation , and I was eager to find out how the story ended.Inheritancedelivered on finishing up the plot points nicely, but the pacing felt off, as did the characters.Much of this book was dedicated to describing how attracted Reese is to David. I know I'm biased because I was more interested in Reese being with Amber, but even beyond that, the endless descriptions of the "warmth in [Reese's] stomach" when she touched David got really, [...]

    4. Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick & Dirty: Two girls and a guy…us 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 relations [...]

    5. Here's the deal, I really liked Adaptation, and I loved Natural Selection , but Inheritance really fell short of my expectations. In many ways I felt it read like bad fanfiction. Inheritance picks up right where Adaptation left off, and moves rather slowly from there.What I did like was learning more about Amber and her Alien Cohort, and that is where my enjoyment stopped. The follow through on the romance really confused me, and it felt very contrived. The end of the book is the pink elephant i [...]

    6. This book invoked mixed feelings in me. On the one hand, it certainly delivered on its promise to close off plot-holes and solve mysteries left over from Adaptation. On the other hand, the solutions to those mysteries were dumber than a box of hair.Far more of this book was dedicated to sorting out the main character's sexuality and the arrangement of their relationships. Another goodly portion of the book was devoted to explaining the telepathy that David and Reese found themselves the unwittin [...]

    7. Yay polyamory! Yay bisexuality! Yay aliens! Yay Malinda Lo! If only there were more books that blended explorations of teen romance and sexuality, complicated families, race relations, what it means to be human, government cover ups, and aliens so seamlessly. There were certainly some moments in the first half of this book where I wanted to give the story a shove to get moving faster, but it definitely picks up pace in the second half. A very enjoyable series.

    8. This Young Adult novel gets an extra star for having a bisexual protagonist. I often like sci fi that is more social-science fiction than hard-science fiction. Social sci fi, like that of Ursula Le Guin or James Tiptree, Jr tends to have a world where something is different socially rather than just technologically. In this case, it's the ability of the visiting aliens to communicate feelings through touch. That kind of sci fi, sometimes called New Wave sci fi, I think, usually has more of a foc [...]

    9. 4.5 is what I really want to give it. Reading a Malindo Lo book is just so ENJOYABLE, and while I've had this ARC for a while, I've been trying to put it off since it doesn't come out until September, and I have a hard time holding in thoughts. So while I'll put off writing my full review, I will say that for a lot of this sequel, there is markedly less action than in the first book. But the explanations of why everything is happening the way it is, and who the Imria are, was so satisfying and i [...]

    10. Let's be real, this book features the only acceptable way to deal with love triangles. Bless Malinda Lo for unboringifying that.Also this was pretty awesome. I'm not sure if all my questions from book one were answered? But I can't entirely remember what they were, so yeah.

    11. AAH THIS BOOK REESE A ND AMBER AND DAVID AND THE ENDING AND TH DIVERSITY AND THE PLOT AND CHARACTERS AND I JUST IM EMO BRB

    12. wandering-worldyrock/32Haaaaa ! Ça faisait bien longtemps que je n'avais pas entamé puis terminé une saga en l'espace de deux semaines. En fait, je me demande même si cela m'était déjà arrivé auparavant ! ADAPTATION m'avait tellement, tellement, tellement plu que je m'étais empressé d'acheter la suite, INHERITANCE. INHERITANCE une est très très bonne lecture, qui reprend l'histoire exactement là où le premier volet l'avait laissé (genre, vraiment, la première ligne du roman est c [...]

    13. I got to pg. 142 and had to dnf. I'm just not feeling it. The first book was okay but so far in this one, I'm not feeling the "clever, fast-paced, romantic adventure" that's described on the front of the book. I'm left bored and not feeling the romance. I don't feel the chemistry between Amber or David. Shame because I was hoping for some fire between them. Oh well, maybe I'll try again in the future.

    14. Reese and David are not normal teens, not since they were adapted with alien DNA by the Imria, an extraterrestrial race that has been secretly visiting Earth for decades. Now everyone is trying to get to them: the government, the Imria, and a mysterious corporation that would do anything for the upper hand against the aliens. Beyond the web of conspiracies, Reese can’t reconcile her love for David with her feelings for her ex-girlfriend Amber, an Imrian. But her choice between two worlds will [...]

    15. Even starting to write this review, I'm not sure what rating to give it. I always have trouble with picking out a rating, but Inheritance makes it extra difficult. In a way, I like this second (third?) part of the series better than the first. That's because I was curious about what was to come next and I wanted to know more about the Imria and everything else. I wasn't disappointed when it came to the story part. Inheritance lives up to my expectations there and it brings me back to the good ol [...]

    16. A wonderfully gripping and heartwarming piece of science fiction, YA and LGBT lit, Inheritance is the followup book to the cryptic near-but-not-quite-apocalyptic X-Files homage of a novel, Adaptation. As a long time fan of Lo's work, I was thrown by the uncharacteristic setting and plotlines in Adaptation and found it much less enjoyable than her previous books. However, read in sequence, Inheritance answers all of the questions posed by its prequel as well as far advances the plot and builds so [...]

    17. After reading Adaptation I knew I had to continue on with this series by Malinda Lo. I haven’t really read many alien books, so they are still a novelty to me but I think that this series is a great one. The writing style is easy to read and you are given the information you need, maybe not all right away but you get it eventually. I was once again hooked by the book right away and even though it had been awhile since I had read the first book, I picked it right back up. There is a bit of info [...]

    18. What I'm about to say makes it sound like I didn't like this book, but I really did: this is an easier-to-read version of Ursula K. LeGuin's The Left Hand of Darkness. That book isn't exactly accessible to teens browsing in the dystopian YA fic section, but I'm extremely happy to see a lot of the same ideas presented by Malinda Lo.At the book's outset, Amber has been outed as an Imrian, Reese and David become a couple, and they set forth to deal with the aliens, the human government, a human gov [...]

    19. I really enjoyed "Adaptation" so I was looking forward to the continuation of the story in "Inheritance". What I didn't expect was that the first few chapters dragged on for me, to the point where it took me several tries to finish the book. The first part of the book was more about Reese trying to deal with the fallout of what happened to her and David, as well as returning to her old life of being a regular high school kid. Because Reese is so uncomfortable in her own skin and trying to find h [...]

    20. After having finished "Adaptation", the first book in this series, I HAD to read this book- not only to see how the general populace would react to learning that they were, in fact, not alone in the universe (or universes beyond), but to see how Reese would navigate her relationships (if any) with both David and Amber. That being said, once I started reading this book, that initial excitement began to wane, becoming almost non-existent. My largest complaint about this book was its pacing- I can [...]

    21. As I noted in my review of the first book in this YA sci-fi series, Adaptation, I don't particularly like the series' premise, organized as it is around Area 51/Roswell/alien conspiracy stuff -- a cultural (and, as I continue to intend to write about someday, epistemological) phenomenon that I find politically irritating in a way that my own long-term interest in sci-fi/fantasy/horror fiction doesn't always outweigh. But I loved Lo's earlier two books, which were queer fairy tale-type stories, s [...]

    22. I liked this book better than the first book in this series. I don't have a specific reason for this, I just enjoyed it more. It wasn't as fast-paced as the first book, which I'm glad about. I still didn't really feel attached to any of the characters, or the romance, but it was really nice to read about a main character who isn't heterosexual. There was also something that happened near the end of this book that I'm really happy about, but I can't say what it is because of spoilers.For anyone w [...]

    23. This came so close to being a DNFer. Truly horrible. Actually contains the line "Mom, you don't think I'm weird for wanting to date a girl alien?" The book is more about homosexuality, lesbianism, and bisexuality than it has anything to do with aliens. The aliens are completely benign but our government is full of conspiracybut nothing much really happens to them, beyond the machinations of two girls and a boy in a romantic/sexual relationship.If you want to read about coming out, plural relatio [...]

    24. I really enjoyed this book! Okay, some (many) of the plot points were somewhat dull, but what draws me into a book is the characters. The main character in Inheritance, Reese, has so many things she has to think through, because she is changed forever. The way that she interacts with everyone else - her overwhelming feelings that she has such a hard time articulating - was completely relatable to me. I've had so many similar moments, and I loved that the people around her called her out on it an [...]

    25. I wanted and was expecting a gripping scifi sequel with LGBTQ characters, but instead I got a romance novel with somewhat patronizing lessons on gender and sexuality. The blurb describes this book as a "thriller," but it has significantly less action and mystery than its predecessor and I had to force myself through each chapter before ultimately giving up. Maybe it gets more exciting, and maybe I'll pick it back up again sometime, but I'm disappointed. For a certain reader (i.e. someone, probab [...]

    26. I don't know what to think about this one. I mean, it tackled some hard things and it was a decent read. I just don't know if I really liked it. I might have to change my review when I've sat on it for a while. I hate love triangles. And having one here just added to the odd pieces of this book. I liked that she is starting to pull the features of the Imria into focus and how they are different and the same, but overall, I was left disastisfied with the direction the book took. Decent writing an [...]

    27. This book suffered from middle book syndrome. Reese was a teenie to the extent that it was somewhat annoying, and the tortured love triangle didn't quite ring true for the characters' interactions in the first book. The poly relationship is really interesting and works well, but the hurried summary at the end of them figuring it out was so frustrating, because I'd much rather read 50 pages of them figuring it out than 50 pages of typical love triangle angst, regardless of the novelty of the reso [...]
