Review

Five stars from Reader's Favorite!

Out of the Shadows (Broken Gears) by Dana Fraedrich is a gripping story with a great plot and interesting characters. We meet Lenore, a woman on the run from her past, risking everything because the consequences could be unbearable if she is caught. When she is rescued by the Allens, she thinks she can live a new life and even abide by the code of conduct imposed by her new friends. But then can she really outrun her past, can she outrun herself? At a time when she is almost convinced that her past is history, someone appears who seems to know everything about her underworld activities and who is just watching, like a hunter, waiting for the least mistake on her part to expose her. Can Lenore embrace the second chance she has been given and beat the threats that loom over her life?

Dana Fraedrich has a great imagination and she has created a story that will enthrall readers. The plot is beautiful and it has many surprises for the reader. Evenly paced, it will keep the reader's eyes riveted to the pages. I enjoyed the fact that the story begins with action. The reader meets Lenore who is running away from an enemy that could make her life miserable, and the reader sees her taking a serious risk. My curiosity was piqued by this action and I longed to know what she was running away from. I loved the complex, multilayered characters and the fact that the protagonist's personality is unveiled little by little. Out of the Shadows (Broken Gears) features great prose, a gripping plot, and characters that will remain with readers long after they are done reading the story. 

From the Author

What's funny about this book is that I started writing it on a lark. I had a dream one night involving some characters from the Ketty Jay series by Chris Wooding. The settings were very Victorian/back alley/cobblestone streets type of thing. Also in the dream, there was a woman I didn't recognise who'd gotten her had cut off. That was where the inspiration for Gadget in Out of the Shadows. The next day, the dream really stuck with me, so I decided to see if I could write a steampunk novel. I'd had an idea for an organization like the Enforcers for a long time, and this was the perfect fit. I actually finished the skeleton of the book faster than I had any other, in about nine months. Then I went back and fleshed everything out and added a bunch of stuff.


I really love this series. I love the world it's set in and the potential it has. I have lots of plans for other books in the series involving other characters and even some historical background for this book. The only regret I've had with the book is that I really wanted the various notes and reports and whatnot to be in different fonts for each character who penned it. I tried a lot of different things, but nothing would really work across the board, so it was just left in one font.


If you read this book and find that you like it, please leave a review and spread the word. Thanks!
