Time is running out…

After defeating the uprising, and becoming infected with a dose of Plush, Holly is in a race to help a seeker before it’s too late. Going South is the only option. But getting there is going to prove difficult, which is why Lockland has entrusted Daze with a secret weapon.

A pulse storm, overzealous militia, and uncooperative siblings are only a few of the obstacles standing in their way. Once they arrive on the coast, the prospect of finding the supplies they need dwindles. But what they uncover may be far richer. A way to move the remaining survivors forward.

But the people of the town don’t see it that way. They want to protect what’s theirs. With the militia closing in, they do the only thing they have left to do, fight.


Danger’s Race starts off right where Danger’s Vice ends.

Holly and the gang split up in this installment, each going to different parts of the world to look for ingredients to cure Plush. Holly has the most important ingredient and without it her friend Darby won’t be able to create the cure to save the lives of those on Plush.

We follow Holly, Daze, & Case out of the city and into the vast un-known. We are on the hunt for ingredients to make a cure for Plush, but on the way we learn that the cure isn’t the one they need, but something else. We learn more about Case, like where he’s from and how he got to where he is now. We see what the apocalypse did to those outside the city. And, we learn that those scientists that where work on a cure where murdered to keep the cure out of the populace’s hands for one reason or another. Holly and the gang learn much, but now have a new threat they need to learn more about and protect against.

Danger’s Race was an ok read in the Holly Danger series. This novel took me a while to read. Not that it’s bad, but I wasn’t feeling the story. I’d read a chapter, then pick up another book; repeat. It was good, but also slow and not as action-packed as the previous titles, so it didn’t hold my interest.

Rated: 3 Stars

I’m looking for another series to try in this genre. Even though this one couldn’t hold your interest, I think I’d like to try them. And a new author for me too and that’s always a good thing:) Thanks for sharing your review.

I haven’t tried this series, but I feel like the same thing happened with previous series by this author. The first book in the series is great, but then they start to get slower later in the series. I have always really liked her characters.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
