If you liked Jean 8 Aeglothecca’s The Pale Waters (and you should have read and loved it ’cause I sure did), I’ve got another one for you.
It’s Skye Genaro’s Echo Across Time. Echo is the first in a proposed series, and if you’re like me, you’re going to have trouble waiting for the next installment.
Let me tempt you beyond reason. Skye, what song makes you think of your book?
This was a fun question to answer.
I thought this question would be easy because I included a playlist at the back of Echo Across Time. So why not pick one of those songes? Then I heard Cosmic Love by Florence and the Machine on the radio (the short club remix) and decided to go off-list. I’ve always loved this song because of it’s energetic, urgent beat, and I dig the lyrics. The driving force of the music reminds me of what it felt like to be a teenager consumed by love: urgent, heady, and restless.
Now take that feeling of urgent young love and add in a 160-year time difference. Echo Across Time is a story about two supernaturally gifted teens separated by time. These star-crossed lovers face seemingly insurmountable barriers, and yet they are so convinced that they are supposed to share a lifetime together they go to great depths to try to make that happen. The lyrics in Cosmic Love capture the dark side of Echo and Connor’s romantic arc.
Okay, I couldn’t find a link to the short club remix that I could identify, sitting as I am in a public place, so the one I found will have to do. If anyone knows what the right one is, leave it in the comments, please!
So what’s the book about?
Echo Across Time
Fall in love with the achingly beautiful story of Echo and Connor, supernaturally gifted teens, as they fight to live out their destiny together.
Echo had it all—she lived in a mansion in the wealthiest neighborhood and was a member of the Partychicks, the elite high school clique. But her enviable life was ripped apart when a bullying incident put her in a coma. When Echo wakes up, she’s gained paranormal powers that she can’t control.
Telekinesis. Aura sensing. These abilities wreak havoc on Echo’s life, and she will do just about anything to get rid of them. Even if it means sharing her secret with Connor, the gorgeous, frightening stranger who appears out of thin air and possesses shocking supernatural abilities. He promises to teach her things beyond her wildest imagination—if Echo has the courage to trust him.
Soon, she is pulled into a world of mystical possibility and starts falling hard for the enigmatic Connor. As Echo uncovers the truth about him, she discovers a dark secret brewing within her city: people with paranormal gifts are being kidnapped and murdered. Escaping with Connor would keep Echo alive, but at a high cost to Connor and to the future they both believe in. Echo must choose between her love for Connor and her own safety, but she can’t have both.
