ARC Review Copy

 

Holly Danger’s current assignment, gleaned from a set of foggy instructions and a handful of coin stuffed into a slot, is pick up a street kid who’s about to terminate himself by jumping off a cliff. And, as a rule, she doesn’t turn down currency. Her job as a salvager keeps her fed and clothed above the norm, which isn’t saying much.

 

The norm in this city is a scrape-by existence in a post-apocalyptic world, where the rain never stops, food is always scarce, and the elite have deserted the ranks in search of something better. Picking up this urchin won’t take much time, even if he’s located outside city limits. Her craft is fast, her weapons deadly, and her tech has been optimized as well as it can be for a climate clogged with iron dust.

 

But things take a big turn when she decides to become the boy’s guardian instead of hand him over. Outskirts have descended on the city, and their plans don’t include playing nice. When her crew is backed against a graphene wall, it’s a good thing her Gem is primed and ready to go. It’s almost as deadly as she is…

Their is a lot to enjoy in this new Sci-Fi Fantasy series by Amanda Carlson.

 

Ms. Carlson is departing from her usual genre and diving into something new. She has brought her characters and world to life. Her writing engrosses the reader from the beginning and keeps you hooked until the end.

 

The story is set in a post-apocalyptic / Star Trek type world. A meteorite hit earth and life was pretty much killed off. Only a handful of humans are serving, well struggling to survive. It’s a dangers and hazardous place to live.

 

Holly our lead character is pretty awesome. I liked her. She’s resourceful, has a good head on her shoulders, and has made a living for herself as a scavenger. As a scavenger she salvages items to barter for anything she may need. She tends to not trust anyone and expects the worst. With her past, what little we get, and the world as it is, I can see why she expects the worst and trust is a no no.

 

I absolutely loved the part where it’s reveled on how Holly gets her name Holly Danger. Though Holly is alone in the world, with her mother gone, she has managed to find people, her crew, and let them into her life. They have, in away, become a family.

 

The book was a little slow at first since we are getting introduced to a new type of world, but things pick up and we are on a another fast-paced adventure with mystery and danger heading for Holly and her crew.

 

I had a delightful time with Holly and her friends. The plot is interesting and will continue into the next, so I can’t wait to see what is next for our gang.

 

Rated: 4 Stars

Danger's Halo: (Holly Danger Book 1) - Amanda Carlson

 

Holly is pretty awesome. She's resourceful, has a good head on her shoulders, and is living in a world gone to shit. An astroid hit earth and life was killed off. Only a handful of humans survived, but not as the world once was. It's a post-apocolypic type scenario.

 

Holly's made a living for herself. Has band of people she works with who are almost like family to her. She cares, but tries not to show it. Caring, Softness, Kindness can get you killed. 

 

A threat has come into her town and wants her and her gang eliminated. 

 

It's fast-paced. A unique world set up and great characters.
