I loved this book. OK listen, all cards on the table— I shot the cover image, and I knew of the book, and the author sent it to me to read if I wanted to. I try to read every book with my covers, and let me tell you— there are plenty of books I won't finish or write a review for. Just because I did the cover image doesn't mean I'm going to rate it high.

To be honest... when I got the cover request I was all "Octopus shifter? Has to wear a utilikilt?!? Uh... ok?!" Yeah, I was. I wasn't sure about

This is unlike anything you have ever read before!! Eternal Echoes takes place in the future. Teagan Moss is a human badass Border Enforcer. Who is dropped into Ari's world. Ari is a shifter unlike any shifter you have ever read about. Ari is now going to protect Teagan at all costs and find out who wanted to kill her and why. The storyline is incredible, I could not put this down. I had to know more about Ari's abilities and dang he has a lot of serious abilities!! You will be captivated by the ...more

One of the best shifter books I've ever read. I love this post-cataclysmic world. The Dagonites are a race of octopus shifters with very talented tentacles ;) Ari and Teagan's story was action packed and incredibly sexy. I cannot wait for the next book in this series. I'm hoping its Ibza's story she is so kick ass!

Eternal Echoes is a hit in my eyes. Fast forward 50 years in the future. Humans are living side by side with other races, although not always harmoniously. Ariston Dago is a Dagonite, and a protector of the waterways of Venice. While on duty he witnesses someone falling into the canal. Compelled by a voice in his head, he jumps in to save her from the monsters that lurk in the deep. He finds her, along with the explosive devise strapped to her chest. Feeling an instant connection with this myste ...more

A unique and fun first book in a new series by “new to me” author Anastasia Virgas.
The “Old Gods” are back and humans being humans have almost destroyed the planet trying to keep the out. Now they have to deal with the fact that they aren't the only ones at the top of the food chain. The Old Gods followers come in many forms… Wolf shifters, bird shifters, etc. The Dagonites are humanoid with a few extras. As human Ambassador Teagan Moss finds out when Dagonite sentry Ariston Dago fishes her out

This was an interesting book with an interesting premise. Yes, I got an ARC, and read it three times. I'll admit that I had a hard time getting into the plot and didn't much care about the people that were being depicted, let alone the situations that they found themselves in. First reaction was "GAD! ANOTHER "Mom and Dad Save The World" book. I almost didn't re-read it - and that would have been a huge mistake on my part.

Ariston Dago is a sentry, a Dagonite, who is an octopus shifter. Teagan Mo

Being the Ambassador to the governing body of earth is a dream come true to Teagan Moss. Being blown out of the sky into the depths of the ocean to be eaten by something that comes from nightmares is definitely NOT! If not for the watchful eyes of the Sentry, Ariston Dago, watching over the sea that night, she might have been lost.

Teagan's lost some time. Waking up in a "palace" with men that look like gods is a bit unnerving, but she's the kind of gal that shoots first and asks questions later

Eternal Echoes by Anastasia Virgas is an amazing walk into a new side of Paranormal Romance. If you are tired of reading the same shifter book after shifter book this is the book for you. An amazing take on a post-apocalyptic world where old gods have come back to help take care of a world destroyed by a Holy War in the year 2020. Ari is a sexy, kilt wearing, badass warrior Border Enforcer, child of Dagon and an octopi shifter to boot. Teagan is a beautiful human woman with a shoot first; ask qu ...more

I LOVED THIS BOOK! It was unique and refreshing to say the least. I love the futuristic setting where the authors present the world following another World War, on top of that, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I loved the idea of an octopus shifter after reading this book. I enjoyed seeing Ari(octopus shifter) accept the strong female character that Teagan (human) is instead of pushing her into complete submission. He loves her the way she is.

I give this book 5 stars. If you are looking fo

Shannon (Savhage Temptrest)
Eternal Echoes by Anastasia Virgas was an action-packed ride filled with comical moments and just the right hint of emotion, realism, and eroticism to make this first book in the Sisters of the Divine series realistic and entertaining from beginning to end.

The story begins with Teagan Moss, a human diplomat and former Border officer within the new United States, being strapped to a bomb designed to destroy aquatic life, within a 200-mile radius, in the waters of Venice which is now home to more

*I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review, and honestly….HOLY CRAP!!!

I have to start by saying this cover is one of the best I have ever seen! Talk about eye candy!!! I’d definitely brake for those tentacles! The model image was provided by the extremely talented and lovely Jenn LeBlanc. Girl, my lens envies your lens.

Take one non human "guy" and a human gal, throw them together in a post apocalyptic world and add some attempted murder mystery and you've got Eternal Echoes. I like coming across something so strange and outworldly that I want to jump on the next transport to the outer regions of the universe to check it out myself. And a good paranormal story will do just that. So I was excited to take on Echoes and visit its Venice. Truth be told I was surprised that it was still there in the future since it ...more

Out of the massive hundreds, probably thousands of books that I have read in my lifetime, I have never once read a book about an Octopus Shifter. And I have to say, I am so glad that I read this book! But it was just amazingly well done. When it comes to shifter books, there is that fine line between what could actually be real and what is completely made up.
When I first started this book and I realized that it about Octopus Shifters, I sat there and started thinking about it. I was wondering i

Teagan Moss is a badass Border Enforcer who's known to shoot first, ask questions later. She's dumped in the waters of Venice with a hydro-bomb attached to her when she's saved by Ari, a Dagonite. They both set out to find the persons who tried to kill her whilst battling the attraction to each other.

Wow, I don't really know what to make of this, it's just so different. I've read lots of different shifter novels but none that have octopus people. It's refreshing reading something similar but com

I really enjoyed Eternal Echoes the characters are strong and well developed and the storyline keeps you intrigued throughout.

Teagan Moss is in Paris to speak at the Symposium regarding their boarders and opening lines of communication between some of the races. All she needs is to first catch a little rest before her presentation, but we don't always get what we want and Teagan is about to find that out the hard way.

Teagan is bad ass and Ari is Hot! The chemistry between these two is awesome. I loved how this book although set in the future was completely real. The emotion between Teagan and Ari is something that I could relate to and understand. I wanted to cheer and cry and to kick ass with the characters.

Teagan is extremely strong, level headed and an excellent shot! She's not your typical female in need of rescue but Ari does just that, and thus starts the story. Ari is a confident, stubborn, hot and a

I really enjoyed this book and finished it very quickly once I started. I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. I was a little unsure of the octopus shifter theme but once I started reading the storyline and how both of the lead characters interacted it did not matter what kind of shifter they were anymore. The sex scenes were really hot and did not cross the line to becoming pornographic and sometimes left me wanting more. The books ends at a point which could be a jumper for anoth ...more

Not going into spoilers or repeating the blurb, I will say I found the characters and setting so fascinating and enjoyable that I couldn't put it down!

I never thought I would be reading about an octopus much less falling for one!! I love that the author could make me fall for a very unlikely creature. This story takes place in the future with a young woman named Teagan. She quickly meets Ari and the adventures begin. Ari has many abilities and I couldn't stop reading to find out more about them. The world building in this book is amazing as well. I could very easily picture all of the scenes as if I was there with them. I love when an author c ...more

Ok, first things first do not let the tentacles scare you. This is a great book and the world building is excellent. Yes, there is hot sex scenes and yes they involve tentacles but it is done in such a way that I dare you to say you wouldn't try it yourself. Please sign me up!!
The idea of the book where there has been a world catastrophe and the God's have come back is amazing. This is a great new take on so many things that you should give the book a try. I can't wait for the next book!!

This shifter story certainly is a bit different. I entered this tale with an open mind and was well rewarded. The author did an excellent job of world building and fleshing out her characters. I was pulled in and entranced by the couple. It is definitely a very rich story and I look forward to reading more if this turns into a series.

” ‘Well where I come from that’s called first base, and I just don’t go any further without the threat to my mate lifted, or the very least dinner. But I like that you want me to.’ He winked. ‘So shall we go see about those weapons?’

Teagan scowled. ‘Let’s. I have the need to shoot someone.’

‘Bring it babe, that’s foreplay.’ “

“The apocalypse was nothing like we feared. It was worse.”

Or wonderful. That if we look at the world built by the author from our reader armchair. And I hope that you’ll choose a comfortable one (or any other piece of furniture) because it will be difficult to put the book down to change your place.

Eternal Echoes evolves on two entwined planes that influence each other: the relationship between the "supernatural" Ariston and the human Teagan. I liked how the author’s mottos keep you up dated a

Hot Damn!! This is by far one of the best paranormal/sci-fi books I've read in a long time. I read it in one day and have already started it a second time. Yes, it is that good! When I first received the ARC, I was a little leary of "octopus shifters" thinking - wtf is that and how can it possibly be hot? Read on my dears...

So, I was in the mood to read something different, and I’ve have this book sitting on my Kindle for a while. After thinking, “how much more different can you get than a post-apocalyptic octopus shifter story?” I said WTH…I’ve only heard good things, I’ll give it a shot. I’ll admit, I didn’t know if the whole octopus thing would work for me, or if I’d just be weirded out by it, but…HOLY CRAP! I am in love with everything about this story!

In a future world, the Earth is no longer inhabited by mere humans. Shape-shifters are a reality because different deities came to Earth and mingled with humans and now the world is divided into factions.

When Teagan’s path crosses with Ariston and the Dagonites (octopus shifter) an exciting, sexy, funny, engaging and erotic story begins. These are two characters that complement each other. Ari is protective, brave, manly, strong, honest and SEXY. Teagan is an independent woman, with an interest
