Publisher's Summary

One hundred and fifty-three years in the future, Earth doesn't look much like it used to.

Holly Danger's current assignment, gleaned from a set of foggy instructions and a handful of coin stuffed into a slot, is to pick up a street kid who's about to terminate himself 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....

    "Excellent, Exciting Story"

    I received this audiobook free for an honest review. So glad I asked for this book. I love a strong female like Holly. She has a tender heart, a quick mind, and a strong body. I'm not a big post apocalyptic person, but this is a great story. The author did an excellent job of keeping you on the edge and keeping your attention. The narrator was excellent as well. She did a great job with distinguishing each of the characters and bringing out their personalities with her voice. Amanda developed the plot and the characters with such depth that you really couldn't guess where the story was going. Looking forward to future books in this series and by this author.

    "Great Start!!!!!"

    Holly Danger is sarcastic, fearless, loyal, and brave! In her post-apocalyptic world she is on the business side of survival. Even the close relationships are held at arms length.

    As the book nears toward the last quarter or so we see her humanity seep through her tough-as-nails shield. It's a wonderful aspect of the book and my favorite part. It comes pretty late in the story though. At the beginning of the story she starts to show some emotion for a boy, but then that is put on hold- or at least it's not felt again- until the end of the book. I wanted to see her vulnerable side make it's way out as we got to know her. I think some of the lack of emotion is in part due to the delivery by the narrator. Her reading is good, but I think there is a lack of inflection that makes it harder to feel Holly's true reactions. Her anger is delivered the same as her concern, as her fear. At the end, with the boy, you hear the emotion and fear for him.

    The story is really good. And a terrific introduction to the Holly Danger series. I look forward to much more!!

    "Book 1"

    The story is a little bit slow in the beginning. Once I read past the detailed, descriptive aircraft technology I settled into listening of the audiobook and enjoyed.

    "Great first book... I'm hooked!"

    I really enjoyed this book, it's packed with action, there are twists I don't see coming, and the characters are well developed and interesting. Best of all the book left me wanting to know what happens in the next book without needing to use a major cliffhanger.

    Set in a dystopian future about 60 years after a meteorite hit the earth, it's an environment where you have to be smart and determined if you want to do more than exist. It makes for a story filled with tension and a sense that something is about to go wrong, even when things are going right, or perhaps especially when things are going right.

    Gripping and near impossible to put down.

    The narrator did a great job of matching the emotions and tensions in the book and also nailed the character voices. All around fabulous to listen to.

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

    "Great story and narration!"

    Amazing storytelling and narration! This book takes place 150 years into the future. Holly the heroine of the book has amazing survival skills, although she is a part of a crew that depends on each other to survive, she’s extremely independent and fearless with a reputation to uphold. She surprises herself by taking in Daze the kid she was hired to find and turn in. She decided that she will keep him safe and teach him the same survival skills she was taught as a street kid. Without giving more away too much of this story, this is a must read if you enjoy good narration and a good post- apocalyptic story. The narrator goes into each character flawlessly. What makes a good audio book....a great storyline along with great narration. It’s all in this book. Can’t wait to see what happens in Book 2.

    "Love this author and narrator!"

    I don't think there's been a single Amanda Carlson book that I haven't loved! This is another one to add to that group of great unique stories. Having Emma Wilder as the narrator (one of my female narrators) was also a plus. She does an amazing job with the character voices and similar to Ms. Carlson, I've never had an issue with Ms. Wilder's narrating skills.

    This was such a different kind of story that had my attention from the get-go. I can't wait for book 2!

    "A Left at the Door Review by Liadan of Danger's Ha"

    An impressive entrance into Sci-fi and Dystopia. Danger's Halo was a book I didn't want to put down. It sucked me into the world and held you firm. The characters were well developed and the twists and turns were around every corner. Holly Danger was a fantastic lead character and a female who didn't need a romantic interest to stand on her own two feet. I can't wait to find out more about the team, and what happens after the events. Book 2 can't come fast enough. The narrator was fantastic and the quality of the audiobook was amazing. A must read for any Sci-fi or Dystopia fan.

    "Engaging"

    Quick moving story. Decent character development and nice story line. Edgy main character with plenty of opportunity to flesh out the backstory of all the main characters as time allows. Great start to what I hope will be a series.
