Image of Danger's Hunt (Holly Danger) (Volume 5)

The urgency just got kicked up to eleven in the fifth installment of Carlson’s amazing Holly Danger series. In the previous book, Danger’s Cure, the enigmatic Case allowed himself to be captured in order to save others. Now Holly is determined to rescue Case before he either gives away their secrets or is killed. Carlson really knows how to balance intricate storytelling along with kick-butt action! She manages to build high amounts of excitement and dread during each chapter of this saga. Then just when you think you have things figured out, Carlson throws a couple of major curve balls that completely shake up the series.

When he sacrificed himself to save young Daze, Case accepted the risk and knew what he was doing. But that doesn’t mean Holly is good with it. So with Case now in the hands of Tillman and his militia, Holly realizes that any hope of rescue means she must act immediately. The one chance to save Case lies with Holly and her secret weapon, “Maisie,” the rapidly evolving AI status reader housed in an egg shaped case. Things get really complicated and dangerous when during the rescue, Holly finds that Tillman and his crew are expecting her. Desperate times call for desperate measures, but the gamble that Holly is about to take could change everything! (CARLSON, Apr., 300 pp., $11.99)
