Proper young ladies in the 1920s don't get dirty, and they certainly don't get into fights. But Colleen's favorite uncle has died under mysterious circumstances, and she wants answers. When a sinister cult comes after her, she pushes back - hard.
Soon she's running for her life, hunted by the cult of Katharis and aided by a secret government agency. It will take all of her courage, all of her strength, and every steam-powered weapon she can devise to keep her alive long enough to unravel the mystery of her uncle's death.
The cult thinks she knows her uncle's secrets. They'll do anything, hurt anyone, to make her talk. But they've made a grave mistake. Colleen is going to take the fight to them, again and again, until the people she cares about are safe - or have been avenged.
Book 1 of the Gears of a Mad God series.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book! So much so, I purchased the next two in the series. A page turner from start to finish, can't wait to start the next one!
Moves along like a good story should!
New to steam punk but enjoying the genre. If you want the other two, buy the anthology edition and save a dollar. Besides, it's nicer to have only one book to deal with IMHO. I wish I had known about the anthology up front. I'd happily swap the separate books for it.
