I am honestly proud of Debra for that dramatic and fitting conclusion.

3.5 Stars.

Overall, I enjoyed this series despite my dislike of yearny romances and overally angsty characters. LETHAL TEEN ANDROID BEING HUNTED BY NEFARIOUS GROUPS SO SHE CAN BE USED AS A DEADLY WEAPON. That's the good stuff right there. Not teens making moon eyes at each other. It's a question of what makes sense for the story development and finding the right balance and way to express this. The romance in thi

Overall, this was a middle of the road series for me. Each book had things I liked and things I didn't like. There were many elements I liked in this final book, but I do think this story has gotten away from the original premise. It seemed to morph into something else (though related) and I didn't feel like there was much payoff with the final conflict.

I think you'd like this if you like stories that explore what it means to be human. There are good messages about emotions and acceptance. Ther

Sooo, I've been seeing some talk about who Mila might end up with in the last book--is it Hunter, or Lucas? Neither, or both? Quinn, or General Holland? (Okay, so maybe I never saw anyone talk about those last options. But still.)

I want to thank you all for waiting so patiently for REDEMPTION. Hopefully you'll find it worth the wait! I can tell you that there is quite a bit of Lucas-time in this book (yay, Lucas fans!), and also, that Mila ends up with---------

So many emotions plagued me as I finished this series: sorrow, longing, denial, satisfaction, but at the same time, so unsatisfied. I basically felt like this -

How can this be the end?! There has to be more to the story. Too many threads left untied. Too many characters left without a real ending. Take Lucas for example. By the end of the first book we are enamored with him for he is truly the only one that fully accepts Mila - androidness and all. However, the end of the third book just leave

I read this book with no memory of books 1 and 2.

Here's the thing, authors always write a brief summary at the beginning of books because each book is about a year apart so readers need to remember what the previous book was about. I always hated that part about books. But Redemption (a lovely and perfect title) did not have a good enough summary to make me remember. So it becomes ironic that I really needed that summary, but this book failed to give a clear one.

Redemption explained t


I forgot how long it had been since I read the first two books in this trilogy - in pretty quick succession, too, if I remember correctly. Because of that long gap, it took me a while to get up to speed when starting this third and final book, and as a result, I found it a little hard to keep focused on the first half of the book or so. But then the second half, when Mila and company make their way to an elite boarding school linked to the conspiracy surrounding her creation, that's when the act ...more

Edit 2/14/16: AHHH we're getting so close now! Only about two months to go!

Am I the only one who really, really hopes she doesn't end up with Hunter, but unfortunately thinks it's inevitable? I really like this series except for that relationship.

More like 3 stars but I was so disapointed with the ending so thats why I rated it only 2 stars.

I loved this trilogy, however, with that said I did not like the ending. It was nothing like I expected which is usually awesome but not this time. I would like to hear what others think.

Thinking it had to end this way. I enjoyed all 3 books in the Mila 2.0 trilogy. Not my usual cup of tea, but the author did a great job of keeping me interested. Just enough android hi-tech aspects to keep me reading.

I also suspect this could not be the end if the author choose to extend the series. Here is a vote for a 4th book!
David Swager
Way too much teenage angst in this one. I understand the whole self-doubt concept with respect to teenagers and having an android with feelings as a teenager compounds that with the "what does it mean to be human" and do I qualify aspect, but make the point and move on. This is book 3 already.

Not a fan of the tragic ending. The whole concept of the melding of the android and human parts of Mila was the interesting part and should have been explored more in depth. And the suicide end

Still waiting to read book two. Really hoping I'll like it, but either way I'm going to look forward to the cover and title release for book three. Both the covers and titles for first two books have been really interesting so far. ...more

I haven't read any Mila 2.0 books in a couple years, so I'm proud of myself for actually remembering the characters and general plot.

The writing style was different from many books I've read recently and took some adjusting to. Driza wrote like the author of the Testing series did: more into telling emotions and thought processes than showing them. While some authors show the character's emotions more through actions and dialogue, I think Driza just tells you how Mila's feeling. Nothing wrong wi

I like this series, and this was a good addition.

Silly me assumed this was the end of the series. Not only isn't it, but it ends on a MAJOR cliffhanger. If I'd known that I would have waited for #4 to come out... though I wonder if #4 will be the last one? I really will try to pay more attention from now on.

This book. This book! THIS BOOK!!!

Warning: possible minor spoilers ahead.

I was onboard from the first page, where Mila and Lucas were hiding out in a quiet cabin in the mountains. A little after that, I admit I felt the story started dragging a bit, feeling a sense of deja vu for a good chunk (except with Lucas instead of Hunter, and different people they were looking for answers from), but then once the gang got together, I was SO onboard again!

I really liked the relationship between Mila and L

THIS BOOK IS SO AMAZING!!! I have seriously fell in love with this series. it's one I can read again and probably again. it's action pact and leaves on the edge of your seat.
honestly I just can't express the emotion this series has put me through.

Mila is definitely the most awesome female character I have ever seen. she is amazing. She will do ANYTHING to protect those she cares about.

I loved her and Lucas in this book, Lucas truly cares for her and doesn't care about what she is. His descript

I would totally give this book 5 stars if it had a better, and less sorrowful, ending. How can that be the end? When I saw that Lucas's sentence was cut off and it went straight for the acknowledgements, I literally cried inside.


I mean, the series was great. But reading all 3 dang books for that kind of ending???? Please, someone tell me that there is another one coming? (spoiler alert) That maybe Lucas figured out a way to bring Mila back? Some sort of ch

To view on Rainy Day's Books, Video Games and Other Writings:

After getting to the end of this book, I can definitely say I enjoyed reading Redemption. While the ending itself made me want to cry, the overall direction Debra Driza takes this last book in the trilogy was really enjoyable to read. I felt like we finally got the real answers we needed as to why Sarah (the person who Mila used to be) died in the fire and found out what Holland was planning on

*This is just a generalization of all three books (book 1: 4 stars, book 2: 4 stars, book 3: 3 stars)

*I thought the series as a whole was an interesting concept. Lots of action to start but I felt as the series progressed, the action seemed to decrease when it should have increased.
*No matter who Mila was around, she wanted to fit in. I get it but the first book she annoyed me with trying to fit in with the ‘mean girls’ like why go through to torture to fit in? I’m just glad that she found some

I've had almost 24 hours to process my feelings towards this book and I'm still not sure I'm ready. This was one of the most emotional and shocking endings to a series that I've ever read.

I really don't want to give any spoilers, I don't even want to hint at anything, so this review will be purely my emotions and feelings about the book.

When you start this book the feeling is optimistic. There are bad things that Mila has to face and recover from, but for me, I started out hoping that there woul

The last installment was probably everything I imagined this series to be when I first picked it up (or, well, almost everything. Not like there still weren't some plotholes). Unfortunately, it was little too late for me.

As I was talking in my review of the second book, I'd wish that author focused more on Mila's familiar/friendly relationships, than just on her relationship with Hunter. That finally happened in this book (and with a new, more sympathetic love interest). Along with finally some

Mila 2.0 Redemption is a thrilling fiction story, by Debra Driza, about an android girl, Mila, who is running away from General Holland and running to find answers about who she really was. Mila recently found out that she has a bomb inside of her, and the bomb is set to go off at any time with only a two hour warning. The biggest problem is that the enemy, General Holland, is the one controlling it. Her tech friend Lukas cannot stop it, but he is willing to help Mila on her journey to find answ ...more

That ending! AHHHHH! This was somewhat of a satisfying ending to the Mila 2.0 series. The problem that I had was that there was so much time between reading the first and second books and then reading this book that I had forgotten a lot of the key points from the other books. If you haven't read this series, I recommend reading it back to back.

I listened to the audiobook version of the book and it took awhile for me to get used to the narrator's voice. She didn't sound like how I imagined Mila
