Summary: Netty’s influence transcends a full century as the United States evolves to a point of politically driven economic collapse. The year is 2033 as a young mother, abused by her shiftless husband, heroically decides to remove her two sickly children, Scotty and Abby, from the mean streets of their government subsidized tenement town of Short Hills, New Jersey to the hills and old farmland of Sussex County. There they unite with a Latino family that adopted Jose, a young boy from Costa Rica, traumatized at the age of seven by the brutal murder of his parents and the kidnapping of his infant sister.
The two families unite to pool finances, creating the love and bonds that will enable them to survive the psychotic attention of Armoni, a soul damaged beyond redemption, discovery of Baby’s miraculous offspring, Echo; and their subsequent body changes. Through the efforts of Echo who develops an unexplained passion for the curly haired dog, Barney, they flee the clutches of Armoni after the murder of Armoni’s sidekicks by Echo, to Sarasota, Florida, one of the last remaining enclaves of wealth in the U.S.
Scotty learns to utilize Echo as a co-conspirator in his intrigue to thwart the efforts of heinous people that prey on the lives of creatures in their environmentally rich new home, where the insidious miscreant, Armoni, tracks them; dragging along Ginger Mae, a New York City prostitute looking for opportunity with her mute child, Daisy; bringing brutality and violence to all.
Having fallen in love, the young Abby and Jose draw close, only to be separated by the transcendental Netty, who tries to use Abby as a conduit in her plan to rescue as much wildlife as they can before despicable political events bring on the specter of Armageddon.

Rating: 4/5 Stars
Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
This is the second book in the Species Intervention #6609 series by A.K. Accinni that I have been able to read and review. I thought book one was crazy, Echo is ten times more crazy. I actually for it to be very disturbing and I was actually afraid that I was going to have very vivid nightmares from reading it. J.K. Accinni is such a detailed writer that my mind will forever be scarred from some of the events that occurred in this book. I thought I felt like committing after reading book one Baby, well it has nothing on Echo. Besides the disgusting things that occurred in this novel, I found it to somehow be the happier book. I felt like the characters in this book ended up better off then the characters from book one, obviously.
Echo was by far the best character. She was so cute and caring and I just wanted to pick her up and cuddle her. Abby,Jose and Scotty were decent, but they were just "there" compared to Echo. And don't even get me started on the "bad guys". They deserved what they got and all I have to say to Armoni is "Karma is a bitch".
Despite these books being completely disturbing due to the graphic details, I can't seem to put them down. I will continue the series for sure. I would recommend them to sci- fi lovers and NOT to the faint of heart.
