I couldn’t wait to get into the second book of the Innerscape Series and check in on Miira, Kenneth, and the rest of the characters. AC Flory captured my imagination and heart with the first book, Miira, and she didn’t disappoint with the second. As good as the Book One was, it was also a set-up for The Godsend where the relationships deepen and challenges escalate.
Miira develops a true friendship with teenage Jaime and enters the virtual gaming world, a new experience for her. Kenneth struggles with the fallout of his actions from the end of Book One. And Marissa enters the story, an assassin with her future on the line, a future she’s willing to kill for without hesitation. Their stories start to overlap, the action and danger take off, and it’s a nail-biter by the end. Book Three promises to be quite a ride.
As in the first book, Flory’s world-building is captivating. Her knowledge of virtual reality, of the gaming world, and of Japan (where Jaime’s game takes place) is stunning. I was completely taken in and convinced of the authenticity of the places and experiences in the book.
That authenticity extends to the characters. Miira was always an engaging character with a strong personality and softer vulnerability. She grows in this book, pulled out of her shell by Jaime, who also blooms and drew me in. All of the characters are beautifully three dimensional, with a full range of emotions and honest motivations. Though set against some amazing world-building, this is primarily a human story and I was/am invested in their lives.
I’m eager to pick up the third book and continue the Innerscape journey. I highly recommend this book to sci-fi and fantasy readers, gamers, anyone who’s fascinated by the virtual world and anyone who loves great world-building and rich characters. Happy Reading.
