There is no one left for Mila to trust. Except for a boy she barely knows.
But Hunter has no idea who—and what—Mila really is. She can’t bear to reveal her secret, even though he’s unwittingly joined her search for Richard Grady, a man who may know more details of Mila’s complicated past.
Yet the road to the truth is more dangerous than ever. With General Holland and the Vita Obscura scouring the earth for her whereabouts, Mila must rely on her newfound android abilities to protect herself and Hunter from imminent harm. Still, embracing her identity as a machine leads her to question the state of her humanity—as well as Hunter’s real motives.
Perfect for fans of I Am Number Four and Divergent, this action-packed and heart-wrenching second installment of MILA 2.0 will leave readers breathlessly awaiting the series conclusion.
Poor Mila. She's going through so much and seeing her try to cope with everything that's happened was utterly heartbreaking at times. Just her inner struggle with her emotions and humanity with the android parts of her were hard enough. Then you add in the grief from the loss of her mother, and her not knowing who to trust leaving her feeling isolated and alone. Sure she was travelling with Hunter, but as she had to hide so much from him and she couldn't be sure of his reaction to the "true" her, that isolation still held true. I can't imagine being in her position, and my heart really went out to her. I love when characters are written so strongly that they suck you right in, and that definitely was the case here.
There was a pretty big plot twist in this book that I had seen coming, but I still enjoyed the way it all played out. The world behind the story is expanding, and I'm really loving the way it's all coming together. I cannot wait to see how things turn out next after the doozy of an ending in this one. But you'll just have to read the book to see for yourself.
I'm pretty sure this series will be a trilogy, so as always in these type of series, I went into this second installment with a bit of trepidation while waiting for the oh so common sophomoric slump. Luckily this time I needn't have worried as MILA 2.0 RENEGADE was every bit as good as the first installment if not even better. With characters you can get behind and an action packed and suspenseful plot, this one is not to be missed. I'll certainly be counting down the days until the final book is released.
