This is the second book in The Soul Seekers series. In this book I think we delve more into the characters themselves, into their growth and the personal obstacles they are trying to overcome. Also, into the relationship between Daire and Dace. The book is told in dual POV's which I really enjoyed. We switch back and forth between Daire and Dace which I think adds so much to how well we are able to connect with them.

Daire has grown so much towards the soul seeker she is prophesied to become. I s

I was a little worried because the second one is the immortals series was the one that ruined it for me.

This is by far the best out of the two I read.

And, I have to say that ending was INTENSE!!!!

So we begin the story all happy, Daire and Dace are together and lad di da. But then, Cade has to ruin it. Like he ruins everything.

Every time that Daire and Dace are together, Cade gets stronger. Which means that they have to spend time apart.

That is so sad. They are two halves of a whole and yet, the

I can't tell you why but I hated this book. I don't think I read even half of it. I tried. I tried so very hard. I think I read every word of the first two or so chapters before I started only reading dialogue till around page 140. After that I gave up and started skipping whole pages then whole chapters.
I've never done this before. I've never disrespected a book or author like that before and I'm ashamed that I couldn't give this book the respect it deserves. I know how hard it is to write a bo

What to say?

I just don't know.

Part of me really enjoys this series, loves reading it and learning tidbits of information.

But the other part of me just can't be bothered.

A lot of this book felt rushed. It was like "OK, Daire needs training, but that's boring to read, let's hit fast-forward" and all of a sudden Daire knows EVERYTHING. Almost. Ish.
One line, seven words, twenty seven letters…….
What the hell happened in the end? I mean seriously. I gave Echo just for the mind blowing end and that killing cliffhanger.

I haven’t read Alyson Noel’s Immortal series or other contemporary romance but I can say that she knows how to tell a story with descriptive detailing. Fated had intriguing premises but when somewhere I felt it was dragged up. However in case of Echo, I didn't feel that way, rather I enjoyed the story more than Fated.

I really loved the first book in this series, Fated, because it was something so different to Alyson Noel’s other books. I really enjoyed the plot and setting and couldn’t wait to get on to book two.

In Echo, Daire is learning how to become a Soul Seeker. Although she has already had some training, she doesn’t know everything… not by a long shot. Unlike in Fated, Echo doesn’t have to spend numerous chapters letting the reader know backgrounds and information about what is going on. I felt like F

OMG, omg, omg!! This book sooo many turns that I was not prepared for. Book three I need you now.

This book was sooo much better than book one. In Echo (since we have the back story from fated), I feel like we were really able to get a start on the Soul Seeker story in here. We get to see our two main characters Dace and Daire, and I do like how we switch back and forth between POV in this book. I think it helped the story too, giving it a little something more to go on!

Seer, Shadow, Sun—together they come
Sixteen winters hence—the light shall be eclipsed
Leaving darkness to ascend beneath a sky bleeding fire”
“It's the same talk we parted with when she left Enchantment just a few months earlier. More warnings about the dangers of cute boys- especially the cute ones, like Dace. In 'The World According to Jennika' boys like that live solely to sweet talk their way into your skinny jeans only to dump you once they've had their way.” 3 likes
