Mila 2.0 is the first book in an electrifying sci-fi thriller series about a teenage girl who discovers that she is an experiment in artificial intelligence.
Mila was never meant to learn the truth about her identity. She was a girl living with her mother in a small Minnesota town. She was supposed to forget her past—that she was built in a secret computer science lab and programmed to do things real people would never do.
Now she has no choice but to run—from the dangerous operatives who want her terminated because she knows too much and from a mysterious group that wants to capture her alive and unlock her advanced technology. However, what Mila’s becoming is beyond anyone’s imagination, including her own, and it just might save her life.
Mila 2.0 is Debra Driza’s bold debut and the first book in a Bourne Identity-style trilogy that combines heart-pounding action with a riveting exploration of what it really means to be human. Fans of I Am Number Four will love Mila for who she is and what she longs to be—and a cliffhanger ending will leave them breathlessly awaiting the sequel.
The cover from Mila 2.0 is extraordinary awesome! so of course, I was hooked, and the synopsis sounds incredibly awesome!
The action packed Identity search!
Everyone who reads the synopsis knows what’s up with Mila. Yet, when we start the book Mila herself has no clue and it was rather heartbreaking to follow her figuring out who she is. The whole story is very action packed from the moment Mila figures out who she really is and it’s a very fast paced story overall. Mila Search however plays the most important emotionally part, so that we have a great mix of action and emotion!
Smart Plot – Clever played!
The plot and idea itself – while not entirely new – was thrilling and very smartly played. I loved the story itself and found it intelligently layered with the perfect amount of twists that were surprising and I didn’t see coming. Especially the ending left me breathless! I loved how well Debra Driza created Mila as a character who has no clue who she is and must learn that everything was a lie. Mila was a heartbreaking character who tucked at my heart with her vulnerability.
Less Action, More Development
May major complain is definitely the romance and Hunter. Don’t get me wrong, there is romance and there is a cute boy, yet I never fully got the connection between Mila and Hunter. Why did they fall in love?I It was not clear for me. Even more, Mila trusts Hunter so deeply that I had to wonder where this trust comes from. I just wish this part would have developed further, with more room for personal and emotional development of Hunter, Mila and their relationship. A little less action and a little more development and this story would have truly rocked so much more!
with a tendency to 4…
Mila 2.0 by Debra Driza was most definitely a clever debut with lots of exciting Scifi elements, tons of action and enough emotion to appel to many different readers. I’m eagerly awaiting the sequel and hope that Hunter will be more thoroughly developed so that I can finally understand the connection between him and Mila better.
