Revue de presse

Praise for Inheritance:
"Dialogue rings true, and the characters are appealing...the alien and political machinations provide menace, a brisk page-turning plot and lots of fun."
Kirkus Reviews

"Readers may find Reese...just as memorable as the clever plot and strong world-building that are the strengths of this novel."―The Horn Book

"Lo's layers of conspiracy that were so effective in Adaptation continue to surface here, and the development and revelations of what's lurking under the surface of this alien encounter will continue to set readers on edge."―The Bulletin

"...Slot this on the shelf between Cory Doctorow's Little Brother and The X-Files."
Kirkus Reviews

"Lo invokes a paranoid X-Files sensibility here, layering conspiracy atop conspiracy and balancing ambitious twists with nuanced relationships that are ultimately as important to the sci-fi plotting as they are to the character development."
BCCB

"Could this be your new paranoid crack?"―io9.com

"Adaptation...had plenty of fun to give. The sense of play-of allusion, homage, and, forgive the pun, adaptation-with source materials like the typical "YA love triangle" and the conspiracy-SF narrative empire of The X-Files makes this book read almost like a love letter to genre, while it is at the same time clearly having a roaring good time fooling around with the things it's built on...the novel is a fast-moving escalation up to a climactic point-where it stops, leaving the reader waiting and eager for the next and final installment."―Tor.com

Présentation de l'éditeur

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 Reese's choice between two worlds will play a critical role in determining the future of humanity, the Imria's place in it, and the inheritance she and David will bring to the universe.

In this gripping sequel to Adaptation, Malinda Lo brings a thoughtful exploration of adolescence, sexuality, and "the other" to a science-fiction thriller that is impossible to put down.

Haaaaa ! 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 celle qui suit directement la dernière ligne d'ADAPTATION). Ce que j'ai adooooooré avec ce récit (et avec ce diptyque en général), c'est tous les nombreux thèmes qui y sont abordés. J'ai trouvé ça tellement génial, novateur et passionnant de la part de l'auteure de vouloir explorer autant de sujets HYPER importants et bien trop mis de côté. Malheureusement, INHERITANCE m'a semblé un peu en-dessous d'ADAPTATION. En effet, comme les bases de l'histoire sont déjà posées du départ et qu'on tente de trouver des solutions aux problèmes qui ont vu le jour dans le premier tome, il m'a manqué un peu d'intensité, de surprise, de cette petite étincelle qui rendait ADAPTATION ultra haletant. Je ne dis pas qu'INHERITANCE n'est pas prenant, bien au contraire, mais il est un (mini mini) poil moins exaltant et saisissant que son prédécesseur.
Comme dit précédemment, INHERITANCE commence là où ADAPTATION s'arrête. Ainsi, nous replongeons dans l'univers à la fois sombre, inquiétant, perturbant mais ô combien fascinant que Malinda Lo a créé.

Inheritance 19 septembre 2014
Par Angie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Inheritance was a wonderful follow up to Adaptation! It picks up immediately where the previous book ended, with Reese and David attempting to reveal the truth (as far as they know it) to the public before they're stopped. Soon enough, the Imria are allowed to land their ship on Angel Island where they give a press conference full of lies! They also offer David and Reese lessons on how to properly use their new ability, while the government is desperate to learn this information. They're caught in the middle of an impending war but they don't know who's telling the truth and who's twisting the facts.

There's always something happening in Inheritance. Whether it's the main government conspiracy plot, Imria world building, or just Reese dealing with her feelings for David and Amber. I was never bored and didn't want to put this down. The plot does get a whole lot more complicated before anything is resolved, which at times was confusing. There's too many theories and lies thrown out to sort through, and I think for how contrived things got, it wrapped up too neatly. One moment there's a lot of action and "what's going on" moments, and then it's all over and things are peaceful. I would have liked a bit more of the aftermath of the truth coming out.

My absolute favorite part of Inheritance was learning more about the Imria. Of course, we see in detail how their kind of telepathy works in the lessons provided. But we also learn a lot about their relationships and views on gender and sexuality. This basically came about as an info-dump from Amber, but I didn't mind it since it was so fascinating! The Imria are essentially more enlightened than us humans and don't really think and behave in terms of male and female gender. They do have biological sex, but everyone just expresses themselves in however way they want. Their relationships also tend to be different than ours, and Amber actually proposes one of these relationships to Reese which I adored! I thought it was a perfect fit for them, even if that too, was wrapped up a bit quickly. I would love another series that takes place on Kurra, because the Imria are a super interesting species!

I really enjoyed Inheritance. The ending was rushed, and didn't touch on everything as fully as I would have liked, but I still thought it was a good ending.

Not quite as good as Adaptation, but still great 28 septembre 2013
Par Andrew M - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I was torn between a 4 and 5 for this one, but seeing as this book deserves a lot higher than the average score it's got right now I'm going with 5.

I loved Adaptation, although I only read it a little over a month ago the wait for the sequel was tough. Now that I've finally gotten to read it I really just want more, my only complaints with Inheritance are Amber's absence from much of the first half of the book, and how badly I want to see more of the character's lives after the ending. I thought the resolutions to the various mysteries and political/cultural conflicts in the story were handled excellently. Plenty of thought provoking commentary on what it means to be human (or sentient I guess, because Amber isn't technically speaking human, but she was a large part of that commentary). The teens functioning as cultural translators for the Imrians was a nice touch as well. The conspiracy rapped itself up maybe a little too cleanly in the end, but the win didn't feel unearned.

(Next paragraph has spoilers about the love triangle, so if you haven't been spoiled elsewhere and want to avoid it here, stop now.)

The one point that I'm SURE is going to be the point of contention around this book for everyone who reads it will definitely be the resolution of the love triangle. I've seen comments here and elsewhere that it didn't feel genuine and that the characters seemed to accept it too easily, but personally I thought it worked perfectly (although I really want to read something of their life together after the ending). I'm pretty sure I saw it coming after reading Natural Selection, with the reveal that Amber has three parents. The idea that Susum'urda (the whole shared-consciousness thing) abates the need for jealousy in relationships makes perfect sense to me. In addition to keeping David and Amber from doubting Reese's feelings for them, they can also feel each other's love for Reese. I thought that Amber and David mutually deciding to talk Reese into it was also a good touch, rather than Reese trying to convince David after Amber's suggestion. I don't really have much of a personal opinion one way or the other about polyamorous relationships, but I definitely believed that this one could (and should) work. It was an unconventional and even risky decision on Lo's part, and I'm glad she made it.

Inheritance Malinda Lo 26 septembre 2013
Par Leena Rian - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
When I initially started reading this series I was impressed and inspired. I love the complexity and realism of the main character and now, looking over both books (no spoilers I promise) I still hold that sentiment. Reece is a compelling, realistic character that the book's audience can empathize with. In the second book I was also very impressed by the intricacy of the plot.

But the reason I gave it only two stars is because, at least personally, the emotional conflict throughout this second book grated on my nerves to the point where I stopped caring and was tempted to skim to the resolution just to put it all behind me.

When I did eventually get to the resolution, it threw me for a loop and I was less than satisfied in the end. If there is ever a third book, the only reason I would ever read it would be to find out more about the grand scheme of the plot as Lo has given us insights into an intriguing new world.

But as for Reece and her love trials, I'm done. The character development for a couple of the other main characters didn't allow for as much empathy as with Reece or as much understanding and the ending seemed rushed, almost half-assed, destroying any attempt for me to become content with it.

But if you haven't read them I would recommend Lo's other novels - Ash and Huntress.

Missed opportunities 9 novembre 2013
Par Kelli - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
This book contained some really cool concepts, which were lost so the author could develop an angst filled love triangle between Reese and Amber and Reese and David.

I picked this up from the library, and I have not read the first novel, Adaptation. While I don't believe it was necessary to read Adaptation first, the only indication that this was a series was inside the cover at the bottom. I admit I only read the outside, which indicated nothing about this being book 2. Most books make this a little more obvious, but ok.

The book starts off pretty promising with a spacecraft hovering over Reese's home. It quickly goes to the theme of David and Reese's high school romance. Reese had a lot of body image concerns, and these concerns translated quickly into concerns about David being more popular than she was. Then it quickly comes to her that David was still worried about her feelings over her relationship with Amber, which actually was expressed as making her feel better about herself because David was jealous. That was just pretty horrible, goody David is jealous. Reese proved to be a horrible person in many ways. She lies to David about Amber. Then she gets caught. In between her lying about her relationships, she is telling her own parents that they can't get back together, because she will be the one left to pick up the pieces. I cannot emphasize enough how much I disliked Reese. If this was what the author was intending, bravo, Reese did not have one redeeming quality. I kept hoping the author would give Amber and David new love interests.

As far as the science fiction portion of this story, this was slowly doled out to us from the Imrians, Julian and his journalistic sources, and a random female soldier. They don't discover anything. It is just TOLD to us as background to the really stupid love triangle. We also aren't given any real details. Even the parts explained to us, the readers, by the Imrian are just glossed over. We don't actually learn anything. To prove how bad this book was, I would like to point out that the super secret, murky government organization, Corporation for American Security and Sovereignty (CASS), just presents themselves to David and Reese. Then they confess all of their nefarious actions. In a better written book, the super secret organization would never come forward and confess that they exist, but this isn't a well written book. The author couldn't come up with a way for this to be discovered, so it is told to David and Reese. Now, why does CASS out themselves? They want to learn what David and Reese are being taught and what they can do. They also want a picture of the adaptation chamber. Ummm, taking a picture of the adaptation chamber is meaningless dear author. A picture won't tell them how it works or how to make one. I'll take a picture of my microwave. Now, does this tell you how the microwave works or how to build one? NO, NO, NO! As I said, this was just the background to the real story about the love triangle. Sadly, because the science fiction portion of this book was soooo poorly developed, there are 9 pages at the end of the book devoted to "news/blog articles" explaining to us what had really been going on.

BIG SPOILER: I am going to discuss the love triangle, and the thing that really, really irked me cannot be discussed without a big spoiler. You need to stop here if you don't want to read a spoiler.

Everyone on Kurra does it. When Amber explained to Reese that she can have her cake and eat it too, I just wanted to throw up. On Kurra, everyone has multiple partners because if you really love someone you want them to be happy. Translation: If you cannot give up David, I am willing to share, because sharing you is better than nothing. This was presented as the Imrian ability to share your emotions telepathically makes you better able to empathize with others. However, the author also shows us that it has NOT removed the emotions of jealousy and anger. The only way this would truly work is if the Imrians were selfless. They are not. The author makes it emphatically clear that Reese does not have what it takes. Under this scenario, David should be able to have an additional girlfriend, so he won't be unhappy about having to share Reese, but Reese was obviously very jealous of David's prior girlfriend. Also under this scenario, Reese's dad should have been able to be with her mom as well as the other woman, but Reese was still obviously bitter about that other woman. If Amber truly wanted Reese happy, she should have been willing to step aside. Aaaah, it didn't happen that way because Amber isn't selfless. It is explained that this is okay on Kurra because no one has babies; they are manufactured. (Please note, the Imria stated they came to earth because they weren't having children. It was never stated that they were sterile. It was just stated that their birth rate had fallen. Maybe this was why.) The only thing I take from this is that on Kurra you are not required to make a decision. You can like everyone. And you can add as many people as you want to your love nest, because on Kurra if you love someone they are allowed as many partners as they want. It is a nymphomaniacs paradise.

Actually, I just viewed this as a device that allowed the author not to have to make a decision.

If you are reading this for the science fiction, you need to go elsewhere. If you are reading this because it is LGBT, the LGBT was limited, and since I disliked Reese as a character, I did not want to see her with anyone. The romance in this book was a big failure, whether it was heterosexual or homosexual. As for the characters, this story was primarily about Reese, and she was circled by all the other characters. Reese was a failure as a character, and the book only casually addressed the other characters.

Ugh, I did not like this book. As I wrote this review, I decided it was not even a two star book. This is just horrible, so one star for this trash.

Liked it ok, but not as much as the first one. Can't really pin it down to a specific reason other than the book left little to my own imagination.

I think I would have preferred the first one to be a standalone. A lot of information dump about the Imria in this one, not sure how it could have been avoided or presented differently. Still liked the characters, still liked the writing.
