Summary

The countdown clock reads ten days until the end of the world. The citizens are organized. Everyone’s been notified and assigned a duty. The problem is . . . no one knows for sure how it will end.

Energy-hungry Mages are the most likely culprit. They travel toward a single location from every corner of the continent. Fueled by the two suns, each Mage holds the power of an element: air, earth, fire, metal, water, or ether. They harness their powers to draw energy from the most readily available resource: humans.

Ashara has been assigned to the Ethereal task force, made up of human ether manipulators and directed by Loken, a young man with whom she has a complicated past. Loken and Ashara bond over a common goal: to stop the Mages from occupying their home and gaining more energy than they can contain. But soon, they begin to suspect that the future of the world may depend on Ashara’s death.

Review

 

I found this book very hard to put down. Echo was fast paced with a lot of action and fight scenes in it. It also had romance in the story but it was not the main focus.

This story takes place on another planet much like Earth only it has two suns. Echo is the story of the planet ending in 10 days and the plan to avoid this. There is fighting, elemental magic with a little bit of romance thrown in. The people face the strongest enemy that they have ever encountered and not everyone will make it through.

Ashara and Loken have a past. It is very obvious in the dialogue between these two that they have not gotten over each other. The author allowed their personalities as well as their insecurities shine through and it made me hope they would find each other in the end even more.

I loved how this story was written and the planet we were introduced to. There was a lot of action as well as battles. The author was not afraid to kill off characters in the story which makes this story more authentic. When you have a story like this there is no way everyone will have a happy ending. My interest was held through to the end of the book. I highly recommend checking this book out.
