Summary (from Goodreads):
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.

Debra blew me away with the first Mila and I could only imagine how awesome the second would be. She did not disappoint!

Mila is still by far my favorite girl. After finding out your not human and your life this far has been lies, you tend to not trust anyone.  I love being with her through her journey to find herself. She is strong and brilliant. At the same time she is na├»ve and falls into the teenage heart. She is slow to trust and it almost cost her her life. Debra gives you so much of Mila that I could certainly see us being friends. She has so much depth in personality and insight into her mind that you begin to think like her. I caught myself a few times telling her what to do with her abilities before she actually did them.

There is so much adventure. It's a constant roller coaster once she meets up with Hunter. There are sparks of hope, love, betrayal and friendship. You are constantly on your toes and hold your breath just make yourself feel better. I couldn't put this down.

This had to be the best worst ending I have ever read. Talk about a major cliff hanger!!!  It was like oh shit and oh no all at once at the same time. I cannot wait for the next Mila. And I know I will love it just as much as this one.

  1. i'm glad this book blew you away. I read Mila 2.0 and didn't think it was amazing because the second half sort of disappointed me but i think I want to pick this one up based on your review and also since it obviously didn't fall into the middle book syndrome.

    awesome review

  2. "the best worst ending" haha I secretly love those! I haven't read this series yet but I do have book 1 on my Kobo I should give it a try it sounds like a fun read and a strong sequel! :)

  3. So much adventure you say? I'll def love this one then. I haven't read Mila 2.0 yet but I guess I should give it a try. What do you say?

  4. AHH! CLIFFIE ALERT! This just means that I need to read all three books in one fell swoop. I don't know if I'd trust anyone if I was Mila, either.


I hope you know that every time you comment, an angel gets its wings.

OK, not really, but thanks for popping by!
