Description: This suspenseful, heart-wrenching follow-up to Debra Driza's MILA 2.0 will leave readers racing to turn the last page.
Mila is back on the run—this time with potential boyfriend Hunter by her side. As they search for a man who might know more about her mysterious past, Mila must rely on her android abilities to protect them from the people who want her dead. But embracing her identity as a machine leads her to question the state of her humanity, as well as Hunter's true intentions.
Fans of books filled with mystery and intrigue, like The Bourne Identity and I Am Number Four, will find everything they're looking for in this exciting series, including several unexpected surprises.
My Thoughts: RENEGADE is clearly the middle book in a trilogy. Mila has escaped the lab run by the evil General Holland but she lost the woman she knew as her mother in her escape. She called her friend Hunter in a moment of weakness and spends the first quarter of the book feeling guilty for putting him in order and also feeling guilty for her desire to leave him despite the fact that that would be the safest thing to do for him.
Mila and Hunter are tracking down some people that her mother told her about as she was dying. They are also trying to stay away from the Vita Obscura because her mother told her that they wanted her to experiment on. She said they wanted to take her apart to understand her technology and sell it to the highest bidder.
This story tells what happens when she is captured by the Vita Oscura. It is filled with new discoveries and new problems. It also ends on a major cliffhanger. Had I known that, I would have waited for the third book to come out before I read this one. I face months of wondering what is going to happen next!
Science fiction fans and romance fans will find things to enjoy in this series. Mila is a great character with lots of conflicts and issues but also with lots of character and heart. Hunter isn't a bad boyfriend either.
Maybe that was another reason why I'd called him. He always made me feel as though I was more than just some fancy gadget created in a lab.I got this eARC through Edelweiss. You can buy your copy here.
