Publisher's Summary

Nature is calling - but they shouldn't have answered.

“A compulsive page-turner mixing supernatural survival horror and...pulp adventure” (Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and The Pallbearers' Club)

Travel journalist and mountaineer Nick Grevers awakes from a coma to find that his climbing buddy, Augustin, is missing and presumed dead. Nick’s own injuries are as extensive as they are horrifying. His face wrapped in bandages and unable to speak, Nick claims amnesia - but he remembers everything.

He remembers how he and Augustin were mysteriously drawn to the Maudit, a remote and scarcely documented peak in the Swiss Alps.

He remembers how the slopes of Maudit were eerily quiet, and how, when they entered its valley, they got the ominous sense that they were not alone.

He remembers: Something was waiting for them....

But it isn’t just the memory of the accident that haunts Nick. Something has awakened inside of him, something that endangers the lives of everyone around him....

It’s one thing to lose your life. It’s another to lose your soul.

From the international best-selling sensation Thomas Olde Heuvelt comes a thrilling descent into madness and obsession as one man confronts nature - and something even more ancient and evil answers back.

Fell flat

There were some REALLY good parts to the story. Spectacular ones that will stick with me for a long while. But most of the story was building up and then the last 1/3 was good. Just wish some of the ‘reveals’ were sprinkled throughout to hold my interest. I also had a hard time differing which character was talking.

Just not my thing.

I struggled to finish. And when I though I was there, there was a second half of the book to contend with.

I was hoping it would be like his first book, Hex. I was a little disappointed.

This book had good ingredients, but wasn't satisfying.

One of the main protagonists, Sam, was written like a teen in a YA novel. It made him a bit insufferable. I thought maybe it was the narrator so I switched from audio to kindle. It was the writing.

There were so many great ideas here, it just wasn't working for me in the execution.

Not good. Hex was so much better. This story dragged and I didn't care about any of the characters. It was really disappointing.

Echo dies.

The concept (the tainted spirit of a mountain possesses a climber) and the characters (a gay couple, one who lives to climb and the other who is terrified of heights and falling) in Echo are great. Sadly the author really overwrote this book, to the point it was hard to figure out what was going on at times. Add to that the problem that very little actually happens in the book. Everything is either flashbacks, or takes place "off camera" and the characters find out about the event after the fact. It's hard to be concerned if a character is going to live or die when you already know he or she lived. (Or died, as the case may be.) Too many parts just kept repeating (Echo, get it???) and many of those things barely even mattered. The ending was a confusing mess. I was hoping for a book that was as unsettling and creepy as Hex, but Echo is barely in the same genre. I was entertained enough to keep listening to the end, and i might reread it someday, but I never stopped wishing an editor had cut out about a third of the book and rearranged the text so that the action happened before the reader found out the results instead of after. All of the narrators were absolutely great and brought some much needed life to this book!

Beware the Echo

Story 3/5
Narration 5/5

I really liked < b>Hex</b>, so I was looking forward to <b>Echo</b> (I actually <I>pre-ordered</i> it), but this long novel was a fail in my opinion.

The underlying story of the cursed mountain is intriguing, but there always seemed to be too much blah-blah about things that don't matter, while still leaving the reader wondering WTF is going on.

Recommendation - not really
