#Fantasy #ReviewShare Echo in the Underworld by Brietta Tatro @BriettaTatro

Echo in the UnderworldEcho in the Underworld by Brietta Tatro
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What were the main relationships explored in this book? There’s Persephone, Echo’s younger sister and it is easy to think that the core relationship of the book is family. To this reader, the core relationship was the one Echo had with herself. She needed to trust herself more and not second guess her abilities.

What I liked about the book … Echo is full of emotion and is fascinating from start to finish. She’s so easy to like and feel what she is feeling. Some things about the story are predictable and at some points it was amusing to see that every time Echo sort of had things figured, things would sort of go topsy turvy again. This is well-written book with an imaginative setting that deserves all the five-stars it can get.

Favourite character(s) … Echo is obvious but I also liked Samuel. Once again the author toys with the sibling angle (Agnes) in the story but I also feel these relationships were put in place to function as mirrors so readers are able to see weak versus strong and which one of the two siblings were prepared to risk more.

Disclosure - As a Quality Reads Book Club member, I received a free copy of this book from the author via Orangeberry Book Tours in exchange for my honest review.
