Many months now, I have been following a blog by a man named Kent Wayne. He’s an author. He wrote the books Echo Volume 1: Approaching Shatter and Echo Volume 2: The Taste of Ashes. He writes funny ads for his books. He also writes musings of thought invoking stuff. I had got Volume 1 for free when he had the book on a promotional giveaway. I read it and loved it even though I’m not into war books. I was going to get Volume 2 on Black Friday, but it ended up being after Black Friday. I finished reading it Sunday night.
Warning: the book has some violence and some cussing.
Echo Volume 2: The Taste of Ashes takes place after Echo Volume 1. Echo Volume 1 & 2 are about a man named Atriya. He lives on a planet called Echo. He is in a military unit called The Crew. At the end of Echo Volume 1, Atriya is on a mission which normally would be easy, but it was very hard. For one, the others in the group are wanting to kill him. They want to kill him because they are part of a religious group called the Jury. Atriya had made one of the members mad who was his old boss. Another reason it was hard because there were more “evil” people in the warehouse than what was said previously. (At one point, I was a little frustrated at Atriya because he hesitated instead of taking out the auto guns. But later on, I figured out why he did save his partner.) Atriya does make it through by the skin of his teeth and impressed the others.
I really did like this book. Kent Wayne did write a third book. It is supposed to be on Kindle soon at a lower price. I plan on getting it at that low price, but it will be a long while before I read it. Now I’m reading Feedback by Robinson Wells.
Here is Kent Wayne’s blog: Dirty Sci-Fi Buddha. You can order the books on his blog.
