Mila has been running for her life for so long. But there might be nowhere left for her to go. Especially now that she’s an incredible danger to herself and anyone who dares get close to her.
That’s why Mila has gone into hiding with friend and tech expert Lucas. She can’t take the risk of hurting people worse than the way she hurt Hunter: the boy she’ll always love, the boy who might never forgive her for what she’s done.
But then Mila discovers that General Holland—her ultimate enemy—has plans that are an even bigger threat to humanity than she is. His quest to reclaim Mila is only part of a larger mysterious endgame that will put people’s lives at stake. Mila must make a choice: either push aside her fears and fight him with everything she’s got…or turn her back on the world forever.
If you are not familiar with Mila 2.0 series, then let me give you a very quick recap. Mila is a teenage girl that was created to be a weapon. In the last book, we come to learn that she has a bomb inside her and it will soon go off at any moment. The issue is that she doesn’t know when but she will do the impossible to learn more about her creator and Sarah, the girl she was designed to look alike. If you’re like me and enjoy anything related to technology, even A.I., then you will enjoy Mila 2.0 series.
As for Redemption, the book starts right where it left off. Mila is in the mountains of Montana with Lucas and his brother Tim. They are on the mission to learn more about Sarah and they do end up finding out more information. However, to get at the bottom of this mission, they will need to go undercover and visit the school Sarah attended. Things are going well but there are a betrayal and then within a blink of eye things go chaotic. The ending was interesting but a bit disappointing. If you read Allegiant then you will understand. However, this one was a bit more understanding than Allegiant. As of today, any ending is better than Allegiant.
Overall, I’ve enjoyed this series. I love Mila – even though she an android, she has more feelings than some human beings. She is daring and caring but always had the willingness to help others. Yet the ending is left for room for more. There isn’t much explanation or character development for most of the characters. And fans are left off in the air with many questions left unanswered. I think Debra rushed the ending and could’ve given us more information and answered things from the previous book. I wish for more but nevertheless, enjoyed the series.
