Overview

Heart-stopping and electric, MILA 2.0: Origins: The Fire contains a short prequel story and an excerpt to MILA 2.0, the first book in a riveting Bourne Identity—style trilogy by Debra Driza.
Mila can't remember anything before the fire that took her father's life. It's normal to have some memory loss after traumatic events, but Mila doesn't remember if she's ever learned to ride a bike, or if she's ever been in love. Nothing.
What she doesn't know is that she isn't supposed to remember—that she was built in a computer science lab and programmed to forget. Because if she remembers, she might discover her true identity.
The question is: If she relived the fire, what would she see?

This is a VERY small little teaser for the YA novel Mila 2.0. I would estimate it at about 16 pages tops. Now, I will say this; it was a very well written teaser, but I definitely was hoping for something a bit more substantial. This was more like a prologue to Mila 2.0, not a novellette like I was hoping for. I would have enjoyed having a bit more. However, like I said before; it's very well written. I could picture the fire that Mila was in as I was reading. This author, if Mila 2.0 is as well-written as Origins: The Fire, (and I am sure it will be) has the potential to be as good a storyteller as Suzanne Collins--I say potential because 15 pages doesn't quite seal the deal for me. Still, that is a very high compliment from a Hunger Games fan like me. Another thing I liked was that it included chapters from the main novel, which I am DYING to get my hands on; I entered a giveaway for an advanced reader's copy, and I lost. Go figure. Anyway, from what I read, it looks super good. And, this book is free, so I can't really complain too much about it being so short, when it didn't cost me anything. I got more than what I paid for, that's for sure. This little story succeeded in its purpose; it made me want to pick up Mila 2.0 and read it. However, since it doesn't come out until March, I will be impatiently waiting for about a month. I would recommend this to people thinking about reading Mila 2.0; it's a good teaser. Even if you're not sure you want to read it, I still would try Origins: The Fire, because I have a hunch that this author is going to be pretty popular.

Definetely a must-read for fans of Debra Driza's Mila 2.0 trilogy who want to read more about Mila, or people considering reading the Mila 2.0 trilogy and are curious as to whether it's okay or not. It has a sample of Mila 2.0 for those who are wondering about the series, and the sampler has seven chapters- and may I tell you, I have only read five chapters of the book so far, as I have received this through my teen reading program, there is so much action in just the first three! A definite, not in the wrong way, lust is created for readers that lures them into the world of Mila Daily, as well as her family and friends, real or not real, and leaves them hungry for more. In the style of The Hunger Games, Divergent, the Stone Braide Chronicles as well as Bourne Identity, Mila 2.0 is a trilogy that is very promising, as well as the fact that it is friendly for teens seventh-grade and up. A quick note, though, this prequel is set a month or two before the story starts, explaining a very important key to this story. Was this review helpful?

Great short story! I read it before Mila 2.0 book one and two. It helped book two make a lot of sense. Can't wait for the third book!

This was a very good short story and start to the series. You get to see what memory Mila is remembering when she talks about how her father died and why it causes her so much devestation

A tiny novella that explains a bit of a dream that Mila remembers. Still good.

Mila 2.0 is a great book. But for those of you that can't spell and asking if it's age appropriate, come back when you learn to spell.

This is the background story to Mila 2.0. It gives a lot of detail and helps you understand Mila better. I recommend reading this first before reading 2.0.

I really thik this book would really matter because if humans didnt exised then of course life would be very different so maybe scientists would create computer ised humans 2 make life more interesting. So would milina would feel like an outcast.
