This book was part of a blog tour I received a copy for my honest reviewSci fi is one of those genres that I normally don't read but I read the synopsis of this book, thought it looked interesting and it does not disappoint. The author does an amazing job building an interesting world, I really liked how she manged to do this without it taking up most of the book. The characters were interesting, Ashara was the main lady and the story is told from her pov, she is strong with insecurities that made her real. Lokan was an alpha male, he does everything he can to keep Ash safe, I did want to know more about him and what he was thinking. Certain things about the book were a bit irritating, the Council wanting to watch Ash all the time. I would think that if the Mages wanted her the Council would want Ash as far away from everyone as possible. Overall Echo was a good action packed wonderful read, one of the best parts of this book no cliffhanger. It's a full complete story, this author has made me a huge fan because of that alone.
