With the sequel to Run with the Hunted, Donohue’s voice has loosened and deepened into a distinctive and fabulous style. The story takes place within the addled mind of the heist team’s cyber expert, Bits, as she navigates a world she’s forgotten with a body full of consequences.
Her partners in crime are in need, and Bits must figure out a way to survive living in the world outside of VR to save a friend. But, what is this mission and why does Bits keep losing chunks of time whenever she tries to focus on it?

The driving narrative is Bits trying to solve her own discrepancies while her friends are patient, but also elusive. There’s a lot of story packed into a short amount of pages, and Donohue balances the mystery with action and banter.

While the end didn’t strike the bell quite as hard as I’d have liked, I loved the distinct and somewhat broken sound of Bits talking her way toward a solution. The first book in this series was from the point of view of Bristol, another team member. Her cadence and attention were focused on being polished and in control. The shift in this sequel to someone suffering a breakdown while trying to save her friends was like fire, fast and furious, and absolutely mesmerizing.

There will be squealing if the third book gives us Dolly’s view on things because who wouldn’t love a triptych of heists and friendship?
