A standalone young adult science fiction novel
Published April 2013
Note: This is an older story, originally written under the name Alicia Wright Brewster.
The countdown clock reads ten days until the end of the world.
The citizens are organized. Everyone’s been notified and assigned a duty. The problem is . . . no one knows for sure how it will end.
Ashara has been assigned to the Ethereal task force, made up of human ether manipulators and directed by Loken, a young man with whom she has a complicated past. Loken and Ashara bond over a common goal: to stop the Mages from occupying their homeland and gaining more energy than they can contain.
The Mages travel toward a single location from every corner of the continent. Fueled by the two suns, each Mage holds the power of an element: air, earth, fire, metal, water, or ether. They harness their powers to draw energy from the most readily available resource: humans.
And soon, Ashara and Loken begin to suspect that the future of the world may depend on Ashara’s death.
PRAISE FOR ECHO
“Proving character-driven science fiction is not an oxymoron, [main character] Ashara Vinn pulls readers into her world on page one and never lets go … This world has depth, mirroring the memorable characters who populate it.”
