District of Columbia
United Republic of Earth
Twenty-three-year-old Adem Adamend has it rough. His name is ludicrous. His friends are few. And the only thing his “kid genius” status has gotten him at the Interdistrict Bureau of Intelligence is a boatload of extra work with no credit in sight.
Then hotshot lawyer Victor Manson is burned to death in his own back yard, and Adem finds himself using his unique skills to piece together the strangest crime he’s ever seen. Strange because the only possible suspect Adem can pin the murder on…is a mythical beast. A dragon.
Before Adem can unravel the mystery of Manson’s death, the Bureau loses jurisdiction to the secretive EDPA, an organization that investigates weird and deadly events. But Adem isn’t one for giving up, so he takes it upon himself to delve deeper into EDPA’s machinations, into the series of unfortunate events that led to Manson’s demise.
And what he finds may change the way he views the world — and himself — forever.
What do you do when a killer can hide behind his dreams?
What do you do when a murder weapon ceases to exist?
And how do you stop a villain who can conjure up nightmares and burn you from the Earth in the blink of an eye?
Adem Adamend is about to find out.
Therin Knite has written an action packed book; ‘Echoes’. ‘Echoes’ held me captive from the beginning to the end. The characters are strong. The plot is strong. The writing is excellent!
‘Echoes’ is a fast-paced book, carrying the reader from one exciting experience to another. I found it hard to put the book down for the night. I wanted to read it all. Therin Knite writes action, betrayal, death, delusions, drama, dreams, murder, mystery, and suspicions throughout his first novel.
The main character, Adem, is arrogant, believable, a genius, humorous, and logical. Adem is surrounded with strong characters, each with his/her own unique personalities; His geeky best friend, Jin; His boss, Briggs; and the mysterious Dynara.
The novel is set in the future; 2712, to be exact. ‘Echoes’ is a great debut novel, for the author, Therin Knite. Therin’s writing is amazingly descriptive and engaging.
I highly recommend ‘Echoes’ for fantasy lovers, paranormal and science fiction lovers. I also recommend it to investigative/mystery lovers. Oh, and did I mention a dragon. Yes, there is a dragon in the story!
I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
