Cloak of Echoes, the second book of a daring fantasy series, follows seventeen-year-old Emma Kincaid as she deals with the mysterious empathic abilities that have so far shaped her life.Emma’s character comes across as quirky and shy, though she possesses a natural talent for humor and is stronger than she gives herself credit for.
The story progresses quickly, with an effortless friendship forming between Emma and brooding new student, Mattox. Themes of loss and difference are key to the tale as secrets are revealed regarding Emma’s unique abilities.
I enjoyed every moment of this short, but intense read. I found myself feeling every subtle emotion of Emma’s character as the urgency of the scenes built up. I was eager to turn each page, excited for what would happen next.
This book is definitely on my paperback list. I would recommend it to lovers of urban fantasy and Arthurian fantasy.
Rated 5 stars.
