Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: This is essentially the story of how Injala turned Mir into someone who could stand on her own. When Mir stands against her father's emergent, we know that she's not just a child anymore.

The complex interaction between programmed DNA and virtual reality is interesting.

Con: We never do quite figure out what's going on with all this stuff. How did Injala survive losing her head and yet lose an eye anyway? And if emergents are virtual reality, how do they hurt anyone in real life?
