Echo: The Curse of the Blackwood Witches

We rated this book:


Echo thought the biggest challenge in her life was making it through her sister’s wedding without fighting with her sister’s best friend. But when the wedding is attacked, her life changes, and she makes the shocking discovery that she’s a witch. Not only does she have abilities she never imagined, but she’s also been tasked with the job of stopping an immortal bent on destroying the world.

Details that Maher weaves into the writing take simple turns of phrases and turn them into clever visuals such as shattered glass revealing a blood bath behind it, a life montage popping like a soap bubble, and a wonderland with bitter and ugly secrets. Echo was taught not to believe in anything she couldn’t see, which creates a delightful contrast when she’s thrown into the middle of a world centered on magic and darkness. The wedding creates a happy opening that is quickly tainted with dark imagery. The magic is crafted through rich descriptions. A delightful foray into a new series, Echo introduces another world, dark magic, and a strong-willed heroine discovering her role in this reality.
