Summary (from Goodreads)

Title: Echo

Author:  Alyson Noel

Publication Date:  13th November 2012

Publisher:  St. Martin's Griffin







Summary:


 "A rush of romance will sweep you away in this hauntingly mystical read. I'm already as addicted to Daire and Dace as I was to Ever and Damen!" –Justine magazine

She inherited a magical destiny—and a mission to stop a powerful family of dark sorcerers. She never expected to fall in love with one of them.

There’s still so much Daire Santos has to learn about being the last Soul Seeker….and about herself.  As her magical training becomes more intense, so does her relationship with Dace.  But when she learns that his connection to the evil Richter family goes far deeper than she ever imagined, she begins to question if love really can conquer all.

Dace is painfully aware that he wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for the Richters’ dark magic—and now his brother Cade is determined to use his love for Daire against him.  Dace is willing to sacrifice anything to protect the girl he loves —including his own life.  But will Daire allow it?  And what if defeating Cade costs not only his life, but his soul too?

Enchanting, haunting, romantic, Echo is the second book in the Soul Seekers series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Alyson Noël!


My Thoughts:


As always I finished the first book and jumped right to the second one. That's why I actually wrote this review first and after the first book review.

In that 10 minutes when I made myself some tea, wrote my mom a text saying : Good night, And switching one book for another I thought of everything I wanted to see in this book. And my 10 minute expectations were really rewarded.

This book had everything: romance, action, maybe even too much of both. And the most awesome ending ever!!! Just as I would like to see every book end, everybody dies, no more question what's after. And because I bought all three books together, I was like WTH??? The ending is perfect, why write a third book? And debating for an hour after finishing Echo if I should read Mystic. But as always I thought, okay, I will read it. (and now I just found out that there is fourth book coming out in November, so I again said that gotta be interesting!)

Back to the second book. I really liked it, even loved it. And I do hope that those who will choose to read it will like it too. But you will definately ask me why, right? Because if you have read Fated, trust me this one is even better. It has everything to take your mind off your problems, and Alyson's style just sucks you into the book. Which is just what you need sometimes. You experience every feeling of the characters. And the best of all? You get to know Cade, not very good of course, because he is absent for the good part of the book, but isn't it awesome to get to know his psychotic plans??? I say sure it is. Because every book needs a psychotic character in it. But Cade tops all of them!!!

I guess I should stop writing this review now, bevause what I want to tell you will definately spoil the whole excitement which this book gives its reader. So, if you did get interested in this book, just go and grab your copy and enjoy it. Happy Reading, and of course don't forget to leave comments!!! :)))
