I have always been a fan of science fiction, dystopian fiction, and action. Echo by Kent Wayne has fit the bill nicely in every regard. Currently, I have read volume 1 & 2. I think they match perfectly together.
Volume 1: Approaching Shatter starts the journey of the main character, Crusader Atriya. This man is like if Roland the gunslinger, from Stephen King’s Dark Tower novels, had a baby with the gymnast. The detail that Wayne puts into character development in these novels is up and beyond similar stories of this genre.
Volume 2: The Taste of Ashes is where the action picks up dramatically. All of volume 2 is one huge battle. If you are a fan of action and combat, then Volume 2 is the perfect book for you.
You also get a good look at the other combat units in this book. The interaction between them and the hierarchy that is present in Echo starts to show itself. The author does a great job painting all of the different units into one vast tapestry.
I like for my review of books, to be honest. I do not pull punches when I find things in books that make me scratch my head or things that I do not like. In Echo, I did not find anything. Parts that made me laugh and other parts that made me keep flipping pages but, nothing that I would put in the downfall category.
With Volume 1 I rated it five stars. It was an exceptional opening to the world. Volume 2 I rated at three stars. I did not think that it was worse than the first, but, I do think the battle could have been shorter and the story progressed faster.
I rarely read series books altogether because my tastes vary from day today. This series is the exception to that rule. Kent Wayne paints a world that makes the reader want to figure out what will happen next.
Usually, I would go into a more in-depth review of a book like this but, please go over and visit Kent Wayne’s website and check him out! Go over to Amazon and download his books.
