Review: Danger's Halo by Amanda Carlson

Sep 8, 2017

153 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...



Danger's Halo is of a buffet of engineering magic, wrapped in an intense story of survival and hope. Carlson catapults the reader on a light-speed adventure, bombarding the senses with superb engineering wordage. Bold and determined characters light up this futuristic adventure. Carlson pushes all the right buttons as Holly and friends outmaneuver the Outskirts. If you love a good futuristic story with engineering speak to sink your teeth into, then this book is for you. You will be carried away.   I can't wait to read the next installment in the Holley Danger series.
