3 1/2 Stars. This is the second book in the Echo series. It was not quite as good as the first, but it still held up.
Echo leaves California to return to her old home in New Orleans. She and her adopted family of supernaturals are called back to help because of Hurricane Katrina. Parts of this book were not easy to read. Even though it's fiction, it really touched on the horrors of Katrina. So many people died, and help was so slow by our government, it was tough to read about it again. It just

I loved the first book in this series and loved this one, too. Ms. Silva tells a good story and has developed a very believable world where her characters with special talents dwell. This is a series I'll keep reading because I like it so much. However, if Ms. Silva is reading this review ... more of Tip, please. And, IMHO, I think she's the only woman for Echo. Just sayin'...

The concept is amazing, the story powerful. I wish that were the only reason I sped through this book, but the unbelievable amount of repetition meant I was skimming large portions of text. Sometimes the exact same information would be given three times in as many pages. It was almost insulting, as if the author expects the reader to have the attention span of a cat. The characters are good enough that I'll keep reading the series, but I'll feel slightly masochistic doing so.

I enjoyed the second Echo novel just as much as the first one. I admire the way Linda Kay Silva writes about these paranormal people so they feel absolutely "normal", so much so I'm beginning to search for some paranormal powers in myself! Can't wait for the third one - until August! *sigh*
