The Last Echo
by Kimberly Derting
Now that the cat is out of the bag about her ability, Violet has agreed to join Sara Priest and her group of psychics and use her powers to do some good. Violet loves the sense of normalcy that comes from being around others like herself, but sometimes fitting in isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be. Especially when the criminals start to become an all too real part of Violet’s life. Both the criminals in her current cases have their sights trained on her, and it’s only matter of time before they come calling.
I’m really happy with where this series is going. I have liked every single installment so far and I hope that doesn’t change. However, I didn’t like it as much as Desires of the Dead. Violet was really my main problem. She seemed to have lost a couple of years along with some of her maturity. She would just get upset over every little thing and she just worried so much. Too me, it was like she was making every little problem into more than it had to be. And I was just sitting here like calm down, boo. I don’t know, man, maybe it was that time of the month for her. The only other problem I had was the blooming love triangle that everyone knows is coming and that it was a little long winded.
As for the things I liked, I loved that the killer got more chapters. I really feel that if you’re going to give the murderer a voice, you need to give the reader enough to know what makes them tick. It just added more to the story. I liked the lack of Violet’s friends as well because they suck. I’m impatiently waiting for Dead Silence because that ending was cray.
