Echo by Kent Wayne

So, I’ve had to give my hands a rest: too many stories in my head and my hands cannot keep up. But, that’s okay, I can still write a short review and catch up on my reading.

I’ve been following Batman’s Kent Wayne’s  blog for a  little while now, patiently waiting for the first in his Echo Volume One: Approaching Shatter  series to go on sale. Finally, it was offered for free and I swooped in like Boise suddenly announced a sale. Score!

I’m still blown away by the five point reviews, but maybe the problem is me. I like discovering a new series I can look forward to, especially if they are meaty. At almost 50k words, Echo is off to a good start. I finished it over a few days. That’s unusual for me. If I like a book, I’m usually done in a couple of hours.  If a book really has my attention, I could be at a traffic light and still thinking about it! Terry Goodkind and Robert Cranes “Girl in a Box” series were like that for me.  But, that’s okay; Echo still earned between 3- and 4 stars from me.

I get it, it’s a military point of view–lots of machismo, which makes sense that there was a lot of literal peeing on the weak and a thirty-page choreographed fight scene. But I didn’t end the book feeling invested in the characters or learning more about Echo. I found myself skipping a lot of pages to follow the intriguing Chaplain Verus, a well-drawn female complement to Atriya, the hero of Echo. Do I want to learn more about her? Yes. Is enough to make me buy the next volume? Let me get back to you on that.
