Book Review: The Unseen Ones by, Danielle Harrington

Thank you to Xpresso Book Tours for having me as a part of the official blog tour for The Unseen Ones by, Danielle Harrington. This is the second book in the Hollis Timewire Series. I reviewed the first book, The Diseased Ones, in a previous post. I really enjoy this series and am excited for it to continue. Find out more here!

The Unseen Ones
Danielle Harrington
(The Hollis Timewire Series, #2)
Published by: Acorn Publishing
Publication date: December 1st 2020
Genres: Dystopian, Young Adult

After the government’s brutal attack on the Diseased Ones, Hollis Timewire must wade through the carnage of her treacherous mistake. The survivors want justice, and now Hollis faces impending execution. Each day, she must prove herself to be a model community member. But chopping firewood for the new camp in the forest isn’t enough. Hollis longs to redeem herself, and this sparks an idea to rescue the little boy from the Testing Center. Stealing the government’s secret weapon might just be the perfect way to destabilize the system – enough to bring the whole thing crumbling down. But unseen forces are at work. The world is not what it appears to be, and society has a dark secret that not even Hollis is prepared to face.

Thank you to Xpresso Tours for my copy of The Unseen Ones in exchange for my honest review.

Before you read The Unseen Ones, you really need to have read The Diseased Ones first. The Unseen Ones picks up right after the first book and hits the ground running. While there is a bit of catching up to help you, I promise that you will get SO much more out of this book if you read the series in order. That being said, I was very glad to have my copy of The Unseen Ones in hand when I finished The Diseased Ones. The series is so much fun to read I didn’t want to put it down, needing the story to continue.

The Unseen Ones is a quick read with a fast-paced plot. If you enjoy YA Dystopian book series like Divergent or Maze Runner, you will have a great time here too. What I find really wonderful about this book is that, even though the plot never seems to slow down, you are still getting to know the characters and watch them evolve. There’s a lot of emotion in this story as Hollis deals with the consequences of the choices she made in the first book. That emotion is felt by many, not just Hollis as the entire community deals with the ramifications at the end of The Diseased Ones. As you get to know the characters a bit deeper, you really start to care about them and what is happening to them.

And once again, this book ends on quite a cliffhanger. So I end my review with an open plea to Danielle Harrington. Please, please get us another book in this series sometime very soon!

I give this book 5 big Sips and can’t wait for the next book in the series!!
