PHOTOBUCKET HAS LOST THEIR MIND. AT THIS TIME, I DO NOT HAVE THE MEANS TO CHANGE THE HOSTING OF SO MANY IMAGES HOSTED BY THEM AND SO, THEIR STUPID BANNER WILL REMAIN FOR THE TIME BEING.

Bleeding and dizzy, Blade wakes up to find himself in the hospital. But how did he get there? With enemies coming at him from all sides, it’s hard to know who attacked him. But he knows that whoever it was will be back to finish him off. And quick. So he’s gotta go. He’s gotta break outta there. Not only to save his own life, but there’s kindly old Mary and little Jaz to think about. Who’s looking out for them? On the run, with grinks hot on his tail and gravely injured, Blade will have to gather all his strength just to survive. And with nowhere to hide, he needs to run. Because this time, if he plays dead, that’s exactly how he’ll end up.


Turns out, I *am* BigEyes!

Out of the Shadows is a combination of books three and four, Breaking Free and Running Scared, of Tim Bowler’s Blade series that was first released in the UK.

The story follows fourteen year old Blade, a young man that the world has thrown away to the streets. Left wounded and vulnerable by his enemies, Blade awakens in the hospital and is almost instantly forced once again to run and fight for his life.

The story follows fourteen year old Blade, a young man that the world has thrown away to the streets. Left wounded and vulnerable by his enemies, Blade awakens in the hospital and is almost instantly forced once again to run and fight for his life. We accompany Blade (while he affectionately refers to the reader as BigEyes) as our hero maneuvers the streets of the city in an effort to stay one step ahead of those hunting him while seeking out the very few places and people he cares for.

Being unfamiliar with this series prior to reading, I had the usual questions concerning Blade’s past and few were answered as the story progressed. That, though, in no way restricted the enjoyment of the read. Concise, meaningful sentences help keep the story alive, holding the reader right there, anxious and desperate to know what has happened, what is happening, and what’s coming next.

Never have I been so belittled by a character, much to my amusement. The humor Blade delivers, with the flashes of his vulnerability and honest fears, keep an emotional tie to the main character through his flight, his reunion with his former street gang, his weighing of the choices left open to him, and even up until its shocking, heart-stopping ending.
"It's no big deal," she says. "Water's calm."
It's not, BigEyes. It was calm before but now it's bucking like hell. Don't shake your head. It's bucking like hell, okay?
