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

The story is very confused, and that makes it hard to be sure what’s really going on. For a trivial example, the very first line tells us Zhen-Juan is an admiral, but later we’re told she’s a general. It’s not clear how a hack can cause your dead parents to think the raised a different child or why you’d care.

It's loaded with infodump after infodump, which makes it even harder to keep track of the thread of the plot.

  1. Data theft that stole *her* memories. Yeah, messing around with timelines and identities...very confusing.
