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.
I really liked the whole concept and idea behind MILA, an android girl with real human emotions and memories that can't be explained and even though I didn't totally fall in love with the book, I liked it enough to know that I wanted to continue on with the series.
I had so many questions about V.O. that I needed answered, not to mention about Hunter. Was he good, was he bad?> Was he everything he appeared to be?
Yep, lots of questions and I was really hoping I would get a lot of them, if not all of them, answered in this second installment.
And oh boy did I!
I don’t' even know what to say in fear that I will spoil something somehow so I am going to try and leave this as simple as I possibly can and spoiler free.
This one started right off where the first one ended, with Mila calling Hunter and asking him to meet her. While it started there, it certainly didn't end there. From the first chapter there are still so many questions, so much suspicion and uncertainly about Mila herself, her mom, the V.O. and of course about Hunter not to mention the action starts pretty quickly with fights, dangers, and Mila constantly needing to be on guard, all while trying to remain as human as she feels.
There is a lot that goes on and yet still a lot left to be done. Yes we get answers, a lot in fact but those answers just cause new questions to come out and with the new questions you once again have to start questioning everyone around Mila. Who are the bad guys, who can she trust and most of all, what in the heck is she exactly and why...well, there are a whole lot of why's in there.
I actually really enjoyed this. Once again, more than I thought I would. I am actually really really curious what the author is going to do in the next book. How she is going to explain everything, handle everything and of course, end everything.
Who will still be left standing and what it will all mean to Mila in the end.
I will definitely be there reading right along with everyone else that has tried this series and was surprised by it because I just have to know how it all plays out and goes down.
