Renegade (ARC): Review


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 have to say Renegade is so much better than the first one! Although there are times where I don't really enjoy the book, It's a freaking exciting sequel! In Renegade, Mila is on the run, with Hunter by her side. But as they travel from one place to another (which is a pretty long trip), Mila starts thinking that maybe someone is not as he/she seems. She has to rely on her strength in order to survive.

Despite the first part being very... um, teenager, because of all the teenage love and stuff, the rest of the story is really action-packed and nerve-wrecking. It's kinda hard to describe that feeling, but it's like you have a feeling that something is about to happen and then the exact opposite happens. The fact is pretty surprising, considering the fact that I thought MILA 2.0 is no astounding at all. A very nice improvement I see there.

Mila, however, is not as good as in MILA 2.0 anymore. She still has the edge that Three doesn't have. But for some reason the edge has been smoothed. She's so human that it seems like the android part has vanished into thin air, which is not something I like, because she's supposed to be an android with plenty of humanity. Not the other way around. However, I do want to say this: something will happen to Mila that will make our jaws drop, and that part is pretty darn awesome.

Renegade is, by far, so much better than its prequel. Although there are flaws, I'm satisfied and I really want to know what will happen next.

Rating: 7.5/10
