To change the world, I may lose everything

All Eva ever wanted was the chance to be herself. But in the Americas, to be hybrid—to share your body with a second soul—is not tolerated past childhood. Now Eva and Addie, her sister soul, are constantly on the move, hiding from the officials who seek to capture them. But the tide is changing. A revolution is brewing, and people

2.5 stars - Spoilers

It was kind of enjoyable, the storyline was a tad predictable at times though and I wasn't that impressed with the main character, her personality was quite bland and her behaviour was rather irritating.
What was most disappointing was the lack of depth and insight into the world and characters. The parts I was most interested in were never explored or addressed properly, instead everything essentially boiled down to the usual dystopian run-of-the-mill teens vs oppressive gove

No title or cover yet. *Pouts* I know, I know ... It's probably too early for that. Well anyway ... can't wait!

Update (3/16/14): Oooh yay it has a cover now! It looks pretty much exactly like the other covers, but ... yeah, it's cool.

Alright, i liked it. But there’s just something about this whole series... I just can’t seem to love it. There are moments where i feel like ‘holy shit this is actually really good!’ and then there a moments when i think ‘how much more do i have to read?’

Full review to come. Overall, i think this series is a 2,5 stars for me.

Initial reaction: That was a satisfying end to a good series overall. A few points for me had the narrative dragging but I enjoyed the journey overall.

Full review:

I'll admit I'm a little sad to be finishing this series with "Echoes of Us" for two reasons: 1. It took me a long time to pick up this final novel and 2. This is pretty much the end of the journey for Eva and Addie. I've spent three books following these characters and found myself invested in their fight for representation and non-er

I was extremely excited when the release date for this book came - and Kat Zhang did not let me down. As I devoured the storyline and new characters, I realized with a sudden jolt that this is the last book in the series. Still that did not stop me from whisking through the pages.

Eva, Addie, and their group force the world to look at the differences within each one of them. They quickly realize that everyone, regardless of how good their intentions might be, has a personal agenda. This time aro

Not great but not horrible. It's a good story with decent execution and plot. I would like to know more of the history of this alternate America, as it's stated that it did not come about untill the start if the twentieth century and encompasses all of north, central and south america. Addie has changed for the better, as she now understands Eva's struggle and does not resent her for being able to move. Eva did not change alot, but she was a pretty good, if naive, character to start with. I woul ...more

Echoes of Us brought the Hybrid Chronicles to the unsatisfying ending I sort of already knew was coming. I'd already known deep down that I wasn't going to get any in-depth discussion or exploration of the effects of hybridity on society. Everybody's got a hundred questions about how a hybrid or part-hybrid society would actually function, and it seems none of them will be answered.

Instead, we focused on a pretty predictable wrap-up where Addy/Eva (view spoiler)

A good conclusion to a solid Dystopian series. It’s not the most memorable story ever, but if you want an interesting story that delivers constant quality, you might want to give this series a shot. There are no hard spoilers for any of the books.

Addie/Eve are still on the run and they can’t refuse the proposal from Marion, a supporter who claims she wants to help hybrids, but is mainly looking for a good story for her career. She knows a way to free Jacks

See more of my reviews on The YA Kitten! I won an ARC from the author.

3.5 stars.

Without ever expecting to, I became a massive fan of Kat Zhang’s books. What’s Left of Me surprised someone tired of all the dystopians, Once We Were wowed me beyond all expectations, and winning an ARC of Echoes of Us was kind of amazing and I may have danced with my book when it arrived but no biggie. Did Echoes of Us manage to match the other two books in the trilogy or even blow them out of the water? If only it

I wanted to read this one because I have enjoyed Addie and Eva in the previous series.

Going in I really didn't remember a whole lot of this one. With the hybrids there were double the characters to remember and besides Addie and Eva I didn't remember the other ones really. Besides Jackson and Ryan I remember the romance with them. But I quickly got back into the action and started to pick up pieces of what I'd forgotten.

Its pretty apparent the sister bond with Addie and Eva. Even though th

I thought the first 75% of this book was awesome. And then it seemed like the author couldn't figure out how she wanted to end it. There were about 4 different directions should could have ended the book in, but it just kept going into another tailspin. It's a shame because majority of it I couldn't put down, I had to have more. It reminded me a lot of the first book & how I couldn't put that down either. The first book is definitely the best in the series, with this being a close second. If you ...more

Don't you just want to scream at these book characters sometimes, "Stop making the same stupid choices over and over again!"?

I do, at Eva, whom I don't really like. I still have a hard time believing she was ever the weak soul because she is obnoxious, self-centered, oblivious, rude, and an all around steam roller. With the brains of a steam roller as well. So, basically, this book is all Eva making stupid choices that continually put herself and others in danger, leaving a path of death and de

It’s sad that The Hybrid Chronicles now have came to and end.
I really enjoyed this book.
I thought there was a lot more adventure and action in this book.
I got super worried that Eva had lost Addie forever, then I thought poor Jackson.
I’m so glad there was a happily ever after.

I liked the series; and the unusual voice really worked. I feel like it ended rather suddenly; and it could have used another 15-20 pages to breathe.

I wasn't sure if I wanted to read this book after finishing the second book in the series, which I didn't like at all. However, I had already taken Echoes of Us out of the library and I was curious to see how the series ended, so I gave it the "read the first chapter and see how good it is" test. I'm so glad that I did, because I loved this book! Everything the other books were lacking in were included in this one, and the writing was much better.

Kind of a mediocre book (it definitely didn't have the same verve as the first story). And it never did address any of my questions from the previous two novels. In fact, it probably raised a few more than it did answer them. And I was annoyed with the whole media affair (for instance, why did everyone in the hybrid party keep Marion in such high esteem? She kept f***ing everyone over basically every chance she had, but they kept giving her story after story after story).

"The world is not on your side, Eva. It never has been."

this was a pretty good conclusion to an interesting series.

This theory of two souls in one body and fighting for dominance - ultimately snuffing the weaker one out - has always been a really interesting idea. The first book I read an awful long time ago - so my first memories of Addie and Eva are really fuzzy. I was really grateful for the first chapter in this book that did a mini review. there were also gentle nudges all along the book he

One of the things I love about this trilogy is how smart Addy and Eva are and how truly teenager they are. I mean that they make mistakes, they react badly, but at the same time they are willing to grow and adapt in a truly courageous way.
I thought the romances were really well done. They didn'tt take up a lot of space but what they did have was both sweet and believable.
One of my big complaints about many series that feature teenagers is that the heroine doesn't have the necessary skills to su

Overall, this was an OK finish to the trilogy. As kind of expected from a YA novel, the story was wrapped up in a pretty bow at the end. As I read some of the other reviews of this book, I too realized that there wasn't a great deal of perspective about what it would be like to live as two "souls" in one body. The entire crux of the trilogy, the existence of these two-souled hybrids and the resulting prejudices, really could have been about any group of people with a particular difference than t ...more

Am I the only one who's really disappointed in the cover? The other two were so pretty, but this one's just... eh. I hate it so much when the last book in a trilogy looks different than the others. Not only is the shadow part weak, but was it really necessary to make it yellow?

Love the title, but jeez what were they thinking?

(NOTE: this means absolutely nothing against the writing or quality of the series, I was just a little disapointed by the cover art, but this means absolutely nothing again

Unfortunately this book was not as good as the others, the storyline was not as exciting, it was quite predictable. However you can not just judge a book on that. It was still written exceptionally, and I fell even more in love with Eva's new 'boyfriend' per say. I can see it even if Eva wont admit it.

I still loved this book, and it ended just the way I wanted, so that makes me even happier and more in love with this series.

A fantastic end to this series and I loved every part of it from start

I really enjoyed reading The Hybrid Chronicles, but this conclusion to the triology was a touch weak, even though everything gets wrapped up. It was too easy. But I enjoyed Eva and Addie and that concept.
