The highly anticipated follow-up to Bang. Echo is the second book in the Black Lotus series.

It's been said the longest echo ever measured lasted 75 seconds, but I can assure you, this will last much longer. The bang deafened the world around me, muting everything into nullity, allowing the reflection of its destruction to live far beyond its intended life.

It will follow me forever, destroying me—destroying you.

You want answers?

So do I.

Audiobook Review: 4 stars

four-stars

I have been wanting to read this series for a long time now and I finally started listening to these audiobooks and what a rollercoaster of mind games this turned out to be!

I asked a friend if there was something I should know before diving into this book and she warned me about some tough to melt issues that are brought up but are also very relevant for the story and its development. So I can just start with that same WARNING myself. There are some issues that has to deal with child abuse on several levels! Probably nothing that hasn’t been written about before but still I was more guarded and cautious because of the warning I was given and that helped me get through those hard parts.

Oh dear Lord…. what did just happen here? At the beginning of this book my mind was set in one direction which completely derailed chapter by chapter and the one I was cheering for in chapter one I ended up disliking and had another favorite that I couldn’t care less for before. These characters all have a role to play for the sole purpose in the story and each one of them are very complex to take on and understand. The one that really stands out here is Nina aka Elizabeth and her strength to survive and chase for revenge on people who stole her life away and her blissful family the way she knew of it.

This book is a page turner for sure and demands your full attention to not miss even the slightness detail that could be out of great importance further on. I liked this book even if there were these hard parts mentioned above that made me beyond sad and disappointed in some people. But all these secrets and lies and all the mysteries that were behind it all kept my interest up and that cliffhanger at the end left me craving for more.

Narration:

Elena Wolfe is at the top female narrator for me and she didn’t disappoint. She delivered as she always do. I was very pleasantly surprised with her performance of the character Declan and the Scottish accent she used.  Overall it was another very convincible and enjoyable listen from Elena.
