Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can’t wait to read. This week I’m excited for…
Renegade by Debra Driza
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.
I really enjoyed Mila 2.0, Driza’s March 2013 debut. Despite its length, it ended up being a quick read, fast-paced and exciting (plus it had an awesome cover, which has definitely continued with book 2). As I mentioned in my review of Impostor, science fiction isn’t usually my thing, so Mila 2.0 was another great surprise for me from that genre. Mila is one badass android, and I can’t wait to continue her story in March!
