About the Author
Praise For Echo…
Praise for Echo and the Soul Seekers series by Alyson Noel
"Daire and her boyfriend Dace are back to restore the balance of good and evil after saving her grandmother and her soul. Dace is deliciously yummy, and if I say so myself, so is his evil brother Cade. It's a bit more fast paced than Fated was, and it's setting up the series to have longevity. If only it wasn't so long again until the next installment!"—Night Owl Reviews (4.5 Stars- Top Pick!)
