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

    • You are welcome. I had fun with the first two books. They where full of fast paced action and I like Holly her name is cool. This third one was so and it just din’t hold my interest, though I haven’t given up on the series yet and still plan to continue, just not in a hurry. I hope you enjoy the Holly Danger series and this author. I happy to point to someone new. Thank’s for visiting.

  5. 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.

    • Not sure if I’ll be reading on in this series. I do have book 4, but not in any hurry. I did try her Jessica McClain series and was liking it, but for some reason stoped after book 3 and haven’t read on. I still have book 4 in my TBR qui to read. The one I had a blast with was Phoebe Meadows series and I read them all. I was hoping she would write about the side-characters, but not yet. Those had a lot of Greek Mythology and I love Greek Mythology plus the action was consistent throughout the series. Thank’s Melanie for visiting.
