Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

The Holding is a work of fiction in the dystopian, futuristic and adventure sub-genres, and was penned by author Daniel Greene. Written as the fifth book in the continuing series The End Time Saga, this work is intended for mature audiences owing to the presence of scenes of graphic violence and the use of explicit language throughout. In this new installment of the saga, we find ourselves traveling to Camp Forge to see what troubles those who were supposed to be stationed there. When they discover a terrifying outbreak, Gwen faces a race against time to find medicine, whilst the dead continue to gather and bring their apocalyptic havoc across the river to end human life for good.

Author Daniel Greene has done something very special with this episodic series, creating a realistically drawn-out apocalypse with a true fight for survival, but at the same time keeping each new twist exciting and its own adventure to be overcome. I thoroughly enjoyed the clever plotting and pacing of this work, where in-fighting, hordes of sick people, and the climate itself all conspire against our heroes, threatening to end their last hopes of survival. The work becomes a fascinating character study that really gets you invested, but it’s also never long before we burst back into the action with sudden danger and drama. Overall, I would definitely recommend The Holding to fans of the existing series, and author Daniel Greene in general to readers seeking a realistic, cinematic, and edge-of-your-seat reading experience.
