Echo is the first book of a trilogy that is the epic love story of two cursed lovers that fate, time, and death are constantly conspiring to keep apart; while they are determined to defy all three to be together. Whenever one dies, the other time travels to the lost lover’s next (or last) incarnation. The story spans over a millennium; to several different times, places, and lives of two extraordinary lovers whose devotion to each other defies all barriers and all odds—and an extraordinary love that will never, ever die.

Unfortunately, this  is another one I just could not finish. I really couldn’t get into and mind kept wondering off, not allowing myself to absorb the story. Don’t get wrong the writing is great, the problem was the storytelling. I just really couldn’t get a hold on the plot, having a hard time figuring out was going on and that was only from the first few pages that I read. The concept is great: star-crossed lovers, going along the lines of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet. But there wasn’t really any clear indication of how the main character ended up where she was and why is this particular under these circumstances. I just had an inkling that if I continued reading I would have more questions than answers.

So sadly, that is why this review is so short. For now, I’m giving this book two stars. But not because it was bad ( I haven’t read the entire book to make that judgement call), because it had potential of being good however the inconsistent storyline may have put a damper on it. Hopefully I’ll finish this in the future. Just not right now.

Overall rating: 2 out of 5 stars

Note: I received this book from the author for an honest review.

I was born and raised in New York. I still live in New York but kind of sick of the city and one day I wish to move to the UK.I have a Masters degree in Library Science and I currently work in a special collections library. I loved books ever since I was a little girl. Through the hard times in my life, my love for books has always gotten me through. Just entering another world different from my own intrigues me. As long as I am entering in another universe, I like to create my own as well. I love to write and hopefully I will be able to complete a novel.
