About the book:

They wake on a deserted island. Fiona and Miles, high school enemies now stranded together. No memory of how they got there. No plan to follow, no hope to hold on to.

Each step forward reveals the mystery behind the forces that brought them here. And soon, the most chilling discovery: something else is on the island with them.

Something that won’t let them leave alive.

Echoes is a thrilling adventure about confronting the impossible, discovering love in the most unexpected places, and, above all, finding hope in the face of the unknown.

Echoes by Alice Reeds is the type of book that when finished I had to pick my jaw back up off the floor and thought about throwing my Kindle. And as much as that sounds like I hated this one I really didn’t, it’s actually rather brilliant. Talk about a book that will mess with your mind…
I don’t want to say too much about Echoes as you can tell the blurb is really kind of cryptic as to what you are getting and that’s a good thing, it’s one that you want to go in fresh and let the story slowly unfold around you.
So what I will say… the opening chapter is Fiona and Miles on a plane that crashes and leaves them stranded on an unknown island. The second chapter takes a reader back to before they got on the plane and gives more into the how and why they are together. From then on it alternates the story here and there.
I know this book is not going to be for everyone but if you like a fast paced adventure with a bit of romance you may want to give it a try. The one thing that I see folks not liking is the ending, it’s a bit open ended to where you can see it either continuing or leaves a lot to your own imagination. I’d actually be fine either way as this one was one heck of a ride to get there as it messes with your mind more than a lot of psychological thrillers out there and I loved that so I’d  definitely recommend giving it a try.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
