Publisher's Summary

Outskirts never die....

After narrowly escaping death, Holly is back on the streets in a quest to find the elusive pico. Discovering what's on the quantum drive - the same one the outskirts had been willing to kill for - is priority number one. Daze is recovering, and forgiving the kid was easier than she thought it would be. The cranky outskirt is another story.

It doesn't take Holly long to discover that Tandor's crew hasn't been obliterated, and are actively seeking retribution. They're recruiting Northerners, but she's found one who's willing to spill. It's a good thing, too, since things are starting to get strange. On the hunt, she stumbles on an old man dressed in a burial cloth, and witnesses a seeker wandering the streets where it shouldn't be.

But after a friend gets caught up in the fray, Holly's hand is forced. She has to act fast to procure the information she needs. But what she learns is harrowing. The outskirts aren't just taking over the city - they're infecting people with Plush, and the quantum drive may hold the only key. In order to save lives, she's must find that pico. The only problem is, it might be too late....

Holly is back for more action

Book two picks up right where one left off. Tandor might be out of the picture, but his #2 guy has taken his place and is out for blood. Plush plays a much larger role in this book, than it did in one. Those afflicted with the need for it emperil Holly and her crew, and their precarious position grows ever more desperate than ever.

Daze isa real treat. I came into this series with book four, and have had to back track, so I am working my way up, and it is fun to see Holly and Daze's relationship grow. She care for him very much, and plans to make him a survivor no matter what it takes. She knows she won't always be around.

The book is fast paced and pulsing with action, and wilder is fantastic providing the pacing and characterization needed to convey everything this story deserves to the reader. She bounces between voices easily, although sometimes her male voices do get a bit muddled or reused in the same book for different characters. It's a shame that therearen't more female characters, as she does a bang up job on Holly and the men.

This is a fine second novel, and I anticipate getting to the third book quickly. Don't miss out on all the Danger!

A solid dystopian sci-fi listen!

Danger’s Vice is the second gripping installment in Amanda Carlton’s addictive Holly Danger futuristic series. This story picks up right where the first book, Danger’s Halo, left off as Holly and her crew embark on another riveting adventure determined to save what’s left of the world.

As this tale begins, we quickly learn that just because Tandor bit the dust in the previous installment, it doesn’t mean that the very real threat posed by his former crew has lessened. If anything, the danger element has intensified as Tandor’s second-in-command has quickly stepped up to take control and he’s even worse than Tandor was. This time, it’s not just Holly and her crew in the notorious villains’ sights: the whole city is.

Meanwhile, Daze, Holly’s retainer, is slowly recovering from his ordeal. Holly’s family has accepted Daze with open arms and Holly’s nurturing of him showcases her soft side.

Case also returns, but he has a way to go to be accepted by Holly. In the previous tale, he lied and put her life on the line. In his favor, he’s a wealth of information and he did save all their lives at the end of the first book.

Regardless, the stakes are high as the crew struggles to discover the secrets held on the mysterious quantum drive. First, they have to get their hands on a working pico computer!

Holly is a fantastic kick ass heroine. She’s smart, strong, tough, fearless, capable, innovative, assured and caring. Her friends are her family and mean everything to her. She will put her life on the line without hesitation for them.

I listened to the audio edition of Danger’s Vice which Emma Wilder narrates with a truly exemplary performance. Her voice is clear and easy to understand. The voices she uses for the multiple characters seem perfectly appropriate for them and they remain consistent through-out. She expresses the proper emotions and her pacing is spot-on. The end result is a polished, professional package which enhances the story. After listening to the audio, I can’t imagine not opting for the audio edition. I look forward to listening to her again soon!

If you are looking for a romance, you may want to look elsewhere. It’s not a romance – at least not yet, However, I’m holding out hope that there will be one in this series’ future.

I strongly suggest that this series be read in order.

I’m a huge fan of Amanda’s books and have quickly fallen in love with this exciting series. It’s fast-paced, action-packed, teeming with mystery and chock-full of perilous suspense. There’s a lot going on in Danger’s Vice and you won’t want to miss a second of the hoopla! If you enjoy solid dystopian sci-fi reads that are guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat, I’d encourage you to check out Amanda’s Holly Danger series. I can’t wait to dive into Holly’s next endeavor in Danger’s Race!

Great action!

After Danger's Halo, I wondered if the second book would be as exciting. Danger's Vice did not disappoint! Lots of action, interesting story, and very well read. I can't wait for the 3rd book in the series.

Another excellent Holly Danger adventure

Dangers Vice: Holly Danger, Book 2
By Amanda Carson Narrated By Emma Wilder

Another excellent Holly Danger adventure; I really love this kick ass female! She is smart, fearless, and still able to be as nurturing as a mother. The narration is perfect, Emma Wilder reads as if she was made to be Holly. Along with her fearless team and new allies, Holly sets out to save her world, well, what’s left of it anyway. Holly Danger is an excellent continuation to book 1 and with a cliffhanger like this one, I can’t wait for the next book! Another Huge 4 star book!

Left at the Door Review by Liadan of Danger's Vice

Amanda is back with the second installment in Holly's story. As gripping as the first, you're drawn into the post-apocalyptic world she's imagined. The characters are well defined and the story flows. I really enjoyed the story and had trouble putting the book down. Great job with Sci-Fi/Dystopia.

Badass woman dressed in black synthetic leather

The Outskirts still have a plan to dominate the City, and it is related to Plush, a powerful drug that not only creates addiction but also changes the DNA of its user. Holly and her friends will need to find where these Outskirts are and fight back this menace.

After listening to the first book in the series, I was looking forward to this one. Holly is a badass woman fully dressed in black synthetic leather, which knows all the secrets in the City. She can be stubborn sometimes, but I really like this character and all the nuances in her personality. The characters from the previous book also appear here. They were not very developed in book one but it seems that we see more from them here and they become clearer to the reader.

I love post-apocalyptic, and I can’t have enough of it, but it is true that there are a lot of books of this genre lately, and many are just okay but forgettable. Not this one. The story trapped me from the beginning, and this is one of those post-apocalyptic stories where there is much more going on than what the characters know, and we will be discovering it along with them. Plush was introduced in book one but we didn’t get much information about it. Some questions are answered here, and some more will be answered in future books.

I found the last twist quite predictable, but that did not deter me from fully enjoying this book. I am looking forward to the sequels, and learn everything I can from this City and its surroundings.

Emma Wilder delivered a great narration and character interpretation. Some male voices sounded similar, but we have to take into account that all characters in this book are male, except for Holly and another character that has a small appearance towards the end. I think it is not easy. Anyway, Wilder’s voice range is quite ample, and her male voices sound very realistic. Her characters’ interpretations were also very professional, and this made easier identifying characters. I especially liked her interpretations of Holly and Daze.

I am really enjoying this series, and I am looking forward to the next books. Book three will be available soon, and I hope we book four will not have us waiting for too long.

I received a copy of this book in audio format from the narrator in exchange for an honest review.

Excellent!!!

Really enjoyed this book! It seems like there may be something between Case and Holly, although Holly denies it. Case needs to start being upfront with Holly and her team though, he's not doing himself any favours with all the secrets. He would be an asset to the group if they all accepted him and he chose to stay, he has a lot of intel to offer the group and skills.

Can't wait for the next book!

Loved it!

I always worry about second books, they're sometimes a let down, but this book 2 is anything but a let down!

There's just as much action as there was in book 1 and there's intrigue aplenty. The pace of the book is excellent, it moves forward quickly without feeling rushed.

I love Holly as a character, her inner strength is impressive and her ability to remain calm makes me envious. Add to that the ability to think on her feet and her loyalty and you've got yourself a kick arse lead character.

The narration was excellent, I really enjoyed the character voices and the delivery enhanced the emotions and tensions throughout the story.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher in exchange for an honest review.
