Echo Volume 2: The Taste of Ashes

My previous review of Echo Volume 1: Approaching Shatter

SYNOPSIS:

When mankind resettled on Echo over 1200 years ago, they were led into darkness by the Regime.  Enforcing the Regime’s policies is the job of the Department of Enforcement.  As part of this department, it is the job of Kish Atriya and his elite unit of Enforcers to take down any Dissidents that have fled the Regime’s policies.

In this volume, Kish and his team have been sent into one of the areas known as the Wastes.  The Wastes are made up of the less savory types in society such as rapists, cannibals and gangs.  An assignment to the Wastes is a life-threatening escapade and they will face danger at every turn.  As if this assignment weren’t dangerous enough, Atriya knows that he has pissed off some powerful people in the Regime.  Most likely the higher-ups have fixed it so that he won’t make it out alive.  But Atriya was born to be a warrior and when the going gets tough the tough get going.  Even with the knowledge that his partner and his team are against him, Atriya must be true to who and what he is.  While logic tells him to do one thing, his instincts dictate another.  In the process of this one harrowing day, Atriya will have to make some life-altering decisions and he will find out what kind of man he really is.

MY THOUGHTS:

 Volume 2 takes off with a bang!  Atriya hits the ground running and the entire volume continues along at full speed.  Atriya’s every thought and maneuver is described in minute detail.  This is not a bad thing!

We are in Atriya’s head as he goes into a hyper-alert state and blazes away at enemies left and right.  Add in some really cool enhanced technological weaponry and armor, a terrifying Enhancile and lots of tension between the main characters and…oh man, this is getting good!  The author states that he loves to thread everything with hidden significance so pay attention!  Although it wasn’t yet out when I finished, I am so far behind on my reviews that the next volume has now been released.  It’s called Echo Volume 3: The Dialectic of Agony and I’ve snatched it up!

Warning: Contains language and violence.
