Echoes of Angels Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Echoes of Angels



Zumaya, 2002,
ISBN: 1894869419

In 1989 in a Scotland rehab center former model Julienne Hunter knows it is time to restart her life after kicking the drug habit that almost killed her six months ago. Still she has lingering fears before she returns to the public caused by the brutal slashing of her face by her abusive maniacal former husband, James.

When her deceased mother's estranged family offers hospitality to Julienne, she sees an opportunity to learn why her mother fled her Virginia home. Julienne also knows this solace will enable her to mentally heal. Her matriarchal grandmother welcomes Julienne with love, but Morgan Saint-Evanston, who her mother hated, prefers she stay away from Blackthorne Manor forever. Though Julienne and Morgan argue, they are also attracted to one another. Still she wonders what is the secret that drove her mother into the night and worries why he plans to vanish shortly. Julienne also frets over a nightmare in which Morgan kills her and she commits murder too, but soon she will find out that the truth is so much greater with worlds at stake.

ECHOES OF ANGELS is a tremendous, extremely dark and graphic gothic fantasy. The story line grips the audience from the moment her grandmother's lawyer drops the invitation on the heroine. Fans will admire Julienne, who at first survives what seems as overkill, but instead cleverly prepares her for her destiny. Morgan appears to be a classic gothic hero but is actually an immortal from another dimension. The weakness of this powerful fantasy is that the audience will want to read book II of the Keepers of Eternity series immediately following completion of this triumphant opening gamut.
