Huh, I never even thought about that. You're absolutely right, it doesn't make sense to do that.

Huh. Good point. Well, maybe it's just one of those things you need to suspend your disbelief to enjoy the book. I didn't even notice that until now!

On the other hand, Carly Wit clearly displays her real last name and her mutated Russian bloodline. No wonder the Iksha tracked them down!

I actually did not notice that until now as my focus was mostly on Adam. Now that I know, it seems pretty stupid. LOL

FelDee wrote: 14 Mar 2020, 14:46 Something that makes absolutely no sense to me is if the Descendants are being hunted by the Iksha, why in the world would Carly use her family name? I mean how easy would it be for these people to find her. I mean even people in witness protection will get name changes.

Maybe I missed something, but I am almost finished with the book and she is still going to school using the Wit name even when they know her dad is captured. How is that smart??

Did this bug anyone else?
Oh, I never thought about it. But now it is really bugging me. I think the author missed this point.

Yes, I feel like the descendant family names would be the obvious first choice of names that the Iksha would look for to locate the descendants. I don't get it either.

Same. I didn't notice it before but it does seem pretty obvious now.

Yes. There are many loopholes in the whole book. Where anyone can feel suspicious of their behaviour.
