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....

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.

LOVE

I really enjoy this speakers voice. this second book was as a addictive as the first and I can't wait for the third. the narrator does such a good job portraying both woman and men voices.

I received this audio book free for an honest review.

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.

Couldn't put it down

I received this audiobook free for an honest review. And, I loved it. I couldn't put it down. This is the second book in the series and it was great. I don't usually like post apocalyptic stories, but this one is really good. There isn't any romance, but I can see that there could be. Holly is a strong woman, with a great mind and self survival skills. Amanda Carlson has done an excellent job with the characters and the flow of the story keeps you spellbound. The narrator has done a wonderful job with the characters. Emma Wilder does a great job of bringing out the personalities of each of the characters. So looking forward to the next in the series.

Loved!

So far I've loved every story but this author. The fact that she or her publishing company gets Emma Wilder to narrator makes it even better. Both are great at what they do.

I like that Daze is getting Holly to open up more emotionally and very curious to see what happens between her and Case, if anything. The fact that Case has always been on the fence or helping both sides annoys me, so I can understand why Holly isn't eager to start trusting him. He needs to come clean with the group so they know what his plans are, although I understand why he does this since he's pretty much always being on his own and has only had himself to trust.

Holly is a Bad A**

Another enjoyable read, I think I like book 1 better but still not disappointed in book 2. I love Daze and developing relationship between him and Holly, I'm glad that he continues to tag along with her. I am interested to see how the relationship between Holly and Case turns out, I can see something there but I'd like to see how the author continues to develop the storyline between the two. All in all I enjoyed this book and am looking forward to reading the next.

Holly Danger - Vice

Great follow up to Danger’s Halo! Character development and back stories fleshed out nicely. Tension between main character and another building nicely. Really looking forward to series continuing.
