I had so much fun reading this first installment.
By Chad McLon - Amazon 5* review
While I was reading the book, it was as if I was transported into another world. It was fascinating how the author was able to bring me to a new place and introduce me to new beings. I can't spill all the beans about the story, but here are a few things that I can say. The author's writing style is very descriptive so you can be sure to travel to a new land after reading it - your imagination will definitely soar. The characters were all developed quite well and the plot is definitely an exciting read. I would definitely read the second installment. I can't wait to start reading it!
Fun and Action-Filled Dystopian
By Carol Cassadaon - Amazon 5* review
I admit I was never into fantasy and dystopian novels, but after reading Whisper Gatherers I have to say I’ve changed my tune.
Adara is the main character in the story; she lives with her aunt Santy and her brother Deogol in Cityplace. Adara gets teased by the other kids, while they’re planning on relationships and marriage; Adara sets her sights on joining the S.A.N.T.S like her aunt. Her training is put to the test when the city is invaded by Agros, who launch a war and destroy what is left of Cityplace. Adara must work to save her home and her brother Deogol, who’s been captured by the Agros.
Adara is one of those characters that you root for and at times you feel yourself relating to her plight. She has a toughness about her, yes she also shows she has a compassionate side, especially when it comes to Elijah, a Praisbee who invaded the town. I loved the closeness she shared with her family, she looks up to her Santy and wants to be just like her. Her Grangran was my favorite character, I loved the wisdom she imparts on her granddaughter and how she provides a dash of humor throughout the story.
The author does a great job of drawing you in with her futuristic descriptions, at times it felt like I was watching a movie, that’s how enthralled I was with the book. There’s plenty of action throughout the story, just when you think everything’s calmed something comes along to shake up Cityplace.
I’m anxious to read the next installment in the series and learn what happens to Adara, Deogol, and all the characters in Cityplace.

Echoes from the Lost Ones:
Unique - By Chanatkinson - 5* Amazon review
“I loved the unique language, and both the style and the voice of the book reminded me of Patrick Ness' Walking Chaos Trilogy. I would definitely recommend it to people who enjoy his books! A brilliant and unique read for adults and young adults alike. Very impressed and will be reading the next installment.”
“A great story full of fun wordplay, great imagery, and an underlying commentary about the frailties of mankind.”
“A story of trust and faith 'Echoes from the Lost Ones' is an adventure that takes you to a time and place like no other.”
“Post apocalyptic world where people worry about when they're next going to be able to go to the loo! Genius, why did no one write this before.”
Wonderful and original story - By Alex - Amazon 5* review
This is a truly exciting and engaging read. The quirky use of dialect and slang is perfect for drawing the reader in and creating a futuristic setting. The descriptions are vivid and the characters really come alive. The heroine, Adara, is both feisty and vulnerable, and her relationship with a sensitive Nealryman, is touching and often very funny. I challenge anyone reading this not to fall for Wirt.
Adara's quest to save her brother from the mysterious Agros sends her into dangerous and unfamiliar territories where she meets some extraordinary people and situations forcing her to summon up all her creativity and special power to survive. Check out the scene where she and Wirt are surrounded by ferocious wolves. I guarantee you have never read anyone escaping in quite this way.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Sci-Fi, dystopian, action, and adventure stories. It's a page-turner all right and a refreshing change from the abundance of zombie, vampire, werewolf and witchcraft novels that are around.
I can't wait for the next book in the series and may have to read this one again.
A Silence Heard:
A thrilling read - Margarita Gakis
“A Silence Heard was action oriented and perilous! I was definitely on the edge of my seat as I read, waiting to find out what happened next!’
“A world in which morals do not exist and yet somehow this little band manage to maintain a sense of compassion and humanity. It is a fight for survival against a cruel and destructive enemy. Tremendous read for young adults who I'm sure will identify with the futuristic genre of the book.”
“I admire that the author had the courage to set the personal stakes for Adara very high in this volume. War is a messy business, and it comes at a horrific cost. That's a tough lesson and one that many authors gloss over for fear of alienating readers. Heroes have to win some and lose some, or the story becomes implausible and lacks tension. That's certainly not the case in A Silence Heard.”
Exciting continuation of Adara's journey - By Amazon Customer
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase 5* review
I liked this second book of Adara's journey to rescue her kidnapped brother and the other Meeks more than the first. It's an action-packed story as the main character is swept from one dire circumstance to another. At the same time, it captures many of the universal concerns of teens coming of age without belaboring them.
I admire that the author had the courage to set the personal stakes for Adara very high in this volume. War is a messy business, and it comes at a horrific cost. That's a tough lesson and one that many authors gloss over for fear of alienating readers. Heroes have to win some and lose some, or the story becomes implausible and lacks tesion. That's certainly not the case in A Silence Heard. I look forward to the next volume.
