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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much better than the first in the series. I was a little apprehensive about reading this as I found the first book confusing,and not super interesting. However I am glad I picked this yp when it was on sale as I enjoyed it a lot more than the first book. It still had a slow beginning hut the character development was written out a lot better and the information was much easier to follow. If you read the first book and had mixed feelings I suggest you give this one a go, I found it to be a lot better.

Editorial Reviews

"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."
