Waiting On Wednesday #18: Echo by Alyson Noel

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by  Breaking the Spine. 
This is were we get to 'spotlight' books that we are anxiously waiting to be released! The ones that we are dying to get our hands on and read into the wee hours of the night and make our shelves look all pretty :)

The Soul Seekers Series #2
by Alyson Noel
Release date: November 13th, 2012 

(from Goodreads) 

The second book in the Soul Seekers series about a girl who can navigate between the worlds of the living and the dead by #1 New York Timesbestselling author Alyson Noël!

Daire Santos just saved her grandmother's life—and her soul. But at a cost. The Richters, a dark family of sorcerers, have been let loose in the Lowerworld, and Daire and her boyfriend, Dace, must once again work together to find them before they upset the balance between good and evil, and destroy not only their small town in New Mexico, but the entire world.

As Daire and Dace's relationship deepens, Dace’s evil brother Cade grows stronger than ever, building his power and forcing Daire to confront the horrifying prophecy that has brought them all together. One that will leave Daire no choice but to claim her true destiny as Seeker, but only by making an unthinkable sacrifice for the greater good of all.

Why I'm waiting on Echo...?
I just finished reading Fated a few weeks ago and I can't stop thinking about it. 
It's similar to The Immortals series as far as world-building goes, but, the writing, imagery and characters are even better - it all kind of stays with you. 
I don't want to spoil anything, so very vaguely I am going to say that I am really looking forward to finding out why and who is 'fated' and why so-called person is being referred to as the 'echo'.

You can see my review of Fated right here :)

ALL four books in The Soul Seekers series have been optioned for film by Cheyenne Enterprises!!!  
I am crossing my fingers!!!
As I was reading Fated, I kept thinking, "Wow, I wonder how they would portray this in a movie?" or
"How cool would this be in a movie!!!" and so on, lol!

Yes, I'm a fan of Alyson Noel! She is definitely one of the few authors that I will pick up her book without even knowing what its about ;)

You can learn more about The Soul Seekers on it's own website found here!!!

SO, what are you 'waiting on' this week??? 


  1. See I loved the beginning of The Immortals series, but as it went on I kinda got tired of it, so I was unsure as to whether I wanted to read Fated or not, but since you seem to like it so much I may just give it a shot.
