Review #225: Echo Across Time- Skye Genaro
Title: Echo Across Time
Author: Skye Genaro
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Summary: Fall in love with the achingly beautiful story of Echo and Connor, supernaturally gifted teens, as they fight to live out their destiny together.
Echo had it all—she lived in a mansion in the wealthiest neighborhood and was a member of the Partychicks, the elite high school clique. But her enviable life was ripped apart when a bullying incident put her in a coma. When Echo wakes up, she's gained paranormal powers that she can't control.
Telekinesis. Aura sensing. These abilities wreak havoc on Echo's life, and she will do just about anything to get rid of them. Even if it means sharing her secret with Connor, the gorgeous, frightening stranger who appears out of thin air and possesses shocking supernatural abilities. He promises to teach her things beyond her wildest imagination—if Echo has the courage to trust him.
Soon, she is pulled into a world of mystical possibility and starts falling hard for the enigmatic Connor. As Echo uncovers the truth about him, she discovers a dark secret brewing within her city: people with paranormal gifts are being kidnapped and murdered. Escaping with Connor would keep Echo alive, but at a high cost to Connor and to the future they both believe in. Echo must choose between her love for Connor and her own safety, but she can't have both.
Review: I received this book free from Goodreads First reads in exchange for an honest review.
At the beginning if this book I was a bit confused, because the summary states that their was a bullying accident that begins all of Echo's abilities. Unfortunately it takes forever to find out what that incident was and when we finally do it was so toned down and I was a bit disappointed by the hype of it. Otherwise I really enjoyed this story, I liked both the paranormal and the mystery involved in this novel. I also enjoyed the romance/ friendship between our characters. I want to know what is happening to all the people with magical abilities. And I want to know where our characters relationship leads them now. I would recommend this book to paranormal lovers.
