She inherited a magical destiny—and a mission to stop a powerful family of dark sorcerers. She never expected to fall in love with one of them.
There’s still so much Daire Santos has to learn about being the last Soul Seeker….and about herself. As her magical training becomes more intense, so does her relationship with Dace. But when she learns that his connection to the evil Richter family goes far deeper than she ever imagined, she begins to question if love really can conquer all.
Dace is painfully aware that he wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for the Richters’ dark magic—and now his brother Cade is determined to use his love for Daire against him. Dace is willing to sacrifice anything to protect the girl he loves —including his own life. But will Daire allow it? And what if defeating Cade costs not only his life, but his soul too?
Enchanting, haunting, romantic, Echo is the second book in the Soul Seekers series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Alyson Noël!
When reading Fated I wasn't really impressed by it because I kept comparing it to The Immortal Series so when I started reading Echo I said to myself "don't keep comparing it to The Immortal Series, because it's not The Immortal Series", once I did that I actually realised that the series was good.
The only thing about the series that I really DO NOT like is switching the character point of views with each chapter, I feel that more could be told if it was in just one persons point of view - because half of each chapter is telling you what happened in the chapter before but with a different character - or if it was just told as a story and I gave it 3 stars because of this.
The story was a bit slow to start off with but once it got going I found myself gripped and wanting to cheat and skip to the end to see what happened but I managed to stop myself and it gain the extra star to make 4 because it gripped me after 3/4 chapters.
Even though my connection to the two main characters Daire and Dace aren't as strong as it is for Ever and Damen I kept hoping that they would find a way to stop Cade from destroying the Lower, Middle and Upper worlds but I guess we won't find out if they can stop him until the final book in the series.
My favourite character has to be Xoilich because even though she is blind she know's how people are feeling and that there is something wrong, and I loved the way that she predicted that it was going to snow and everyone except her boyfriend bet against her saying it wasn't going to snow because it never snows in Enchantment.
As always the book is written beautifully, and there is a lot that happens and I felt that I was in the book and could see everything that was happening through out most of the book but especially the final fight scene.
When you found out that Dace and Cade are as one so that if you kill one the other dies, I kind of predicted during Dace's magical training.
I will definatly be reading Mystic after reading this because I want to know if they find a way to save Dace and rid Cade.
Well done Alyson for not making me give up on The Soul Seekers and finally gripping me to a new series.
