Echo Volume 2: The Taste of Ashes by Kent Wayne
After that cliff-hanger of an ending with Volume 1, I jumped right into Volume 2. There were questions I was waiting to have answered, that were masterfully avoided (Volume 3 is on its way)!
This book is a non-stop whirlwind of life-or-death fighting, every second waiting for the knife to come from the dark as Atriya faces the enemies in front. If we were unsure of Atriya’s character from his adventures in Volume 1, they’ve all been put to rest. This man is on a mission I’m not sure he even realizes he’s on. Apparently to save the world, or at least everyone cursed enough to live on it.
Like stated in the afterword:
Good God Kent, this book happened over the course of a day. One day!
I’m not typically that big of a fan of pages and pages of fighting, but here, it all worked. It wasn’t incessant, or forced. It simply was a really bad day that needed telling.
Not to be read before Volume One, Echo Volume 2 promises a thrill of action, and death-defying soldier conflicts. There may even be some mutant enemy soldiers to worry about.
