Echoes of the Future Antho - First review is in!

Echoes of the Future

Authors: A.B. Gayle, Aleksandr Voinov, Jude Mason, Kate Cotoner
Publisher: Noble Romance



The first of a series of reviews for Echoes of the Future is live and E.H. has done an amazing job. The first story she tackled was BURN, by Alesandr Voinov. Here's the blurb for the story:

Flight Lieutenant Chris Waters is the pilot of a cutting-edge unmanned SAD fighter drone that is used for secret government missions. Chris is cutting-edge technology himself: his neural network is upgraded with cyber-technology and software that makes him the interface of his combat drone.

Then, something goes wrong as he connects to his drone. Haunted by strange, disorientating impressions, a so-called 'ghost', he hooks up on leave with fellow pilot Cyril for a night. But Cyril is not the man Chris thought he is, and Chris soon finds out what the 'ghost' in his body really is, as well as the truth about his missions.

Here's a little snippet of what E.H. had to say about BURN:

There was smut involved, the author didn’t leave that out but not the soft words and gentle touches sort of scene. This was slam again the door and as rough as they could get sort of action and I wanted more.

E.H. got it. By that I mean she understood what the entire anthology was about and even though she admits it's not something she might have picked up for pleasurable reading, she enjoyed this book a lot.

Also, if you'd like to find out a little more about Aleksandr, keep reading. E.H. did a little bit of an interview asking questions about where the idea for the book came from, does he plan to write more about the characters, and more. Check this awesome review and interview: HERE

Nothing like winning them over. :) I'm looking forward to what she did with you and the others.

Hi Aleks!

Yup, seems E.H. is bowled over by the anthology. I know she's been feeling a little burned out lately. Reading a new genre, to her, seems to have got her all fired up again.

Thanks for stopping by!
