BRUH. ARE YOU SERIOUS?
>rape from last book leaves soldier with PTSD and relationship issues in book 2.
>even almost a year later, can't cope
>Kelly and Vick having major relationship/intimacy issues because of it
>kind of set up to be this big thing getting in the middle of their relationship, but is more or less forgotten about anyway once we're past the opening chapters
>the rape was obviously so inconsequential in reality because the AI system in Vick's head just erased the details of the rape to cure the PTSD at the 90% mark.
>not like a year ago when Vick was first having issues
>and somehow Vick has all the details from other memories that cause her PTSD, but this time, this solution... is the one to fix her.

Just magically snap your fingers at 90% to resolve the issue you presented at the beginning of the novel and never went at head-on throughout the whole rest of the book.
WHAT IS EVEN THE POINT?
