Okay. Don't know how many ways I can say this but this author is brilliant. This is another well crafted novel yet still like the last I just cant make it a five star. I really want to but I just cant.
This novel starts further into the future whereas the last one started in the past. That was refreshing. The plot as always moved along just fine. Twist and turns great, teen angst on point. Not much in those areas to complain about. The problem lies in the main character. In this book it's Ava and her teen daughter Grace.
Basically Ava after spending an entire book in Morray's past seeing how his father's need to work made him a bad father, well absent. Then Morray himself did the same thing to his son. Completely neglected him for the mission of continuing his father's work. And, now, Ava, has spent over fifteen years I believe, living in the mainframe and Lillian's journals trying to find Morray. Which subsequently placed her work above being a mother. Thankfully this child, Grace, has Joseph her father. But Resentment, yes. She has bucket loads of this stuff. And her excuse is, what I'm doing is for you.
