Today I am reviewing Echo by Alicia Wright Brewster.
Blurb: A young adult science fiction adventure novel, this story features a strong, but flawed heroine and complex world building, along with themes of friendship, loss, faith, and tolerance—and the end of the world. With the countdown clock showing 10 days until the end of their planet, everyone has been notified and assigned a duty—but the problem is no one knows for sure how everything will end. Energy-hungry Mages are the most likely culprit, traveling 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. Ashara has been assigned to the Ethereal task group, 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 home and gaining more energy than they can contain. But soon, they begin to suspect that the future of the world may depend on something unexpected—Ashara’s death.
My Review: This was a different twist on the end of the world concepts. This time everyone know when it will happen and apparently they keep rewinding time to try to fix the fact that is going to happen. Confused yet?. I admit there are times in the book when I was a little confused as well. This time there are enough things different about the rewind that no one seems to really know what to think about it. There is lots of action and drama with a little romance thrown in and it does make an enjoyable read. I give this 3 stars.
