Review by: Maria Komninos on April 22, 2013 :
Wow! I thought that the first book in the series 'Baby' was good. Echo did not disappoint. After reading Baby I just had to start Echo straight away. Soooooo looking forward to picking up Amageddon. Cometh.

Echo jumped about 100 years into the future from where Baby finished. The year is 2033, with completely new characters and the United States not as we know it. People are suffering from poverty, economic depression and outbreaks of illness. I love how Mexico has become the place where US citizens tried to flee to for work.

To me, it was realistic when two families were brought together so they could survive. Scott, Abby and mum with the Diaz family. Together they manage to live a somewhat normal life until an accident occurs and the families are torn apart.

I did find parts very graphic in the book which I can see will turn readers away. The sick mind of Armoni was unbelievable.

The twists and turns in the story kept me going. And the gold coin reappears again.

Oh and how cute is Echo

Oh and I did love the last paragraph in the book, which makes me want to read the third book right away.

Review by: Candice Simpson on April 21, 2013 :
I almost want to title this-let the truth be set free. You get a sense of truth in what J.K. is describing, her details draw you in, you feel for the circumstance, and live through the environment. Sadness, shame, realness, and truth come to light quickly, upfront, and in a very pressured mode. In saying that-the book is incredible, the light it gives to things right now in our lives is again, incredible. I would never want to go through some of what Echo faces but I enjoyed living in light of it, and relating to things in a sense. I can say- JK knows how to write characters, scenes, details and descriptions to create a movie sense in the book-and make you laugh, cry, feel anger, want to kill someone, and feel a sincere passion of the story. This is the second book in the Species Intervention #6609 Series. There are new characters, new creations, and a new scenario round about---and its phenomenal!

Review by: Lavinia Urban on April 21, 2013 :
This book was set in the not to far off future where a young boy called Scotty goes in search for fairies, only to find Echo, who is the offspring of baby (from book one)
The world as we know it has started to change. Muslims run the majority of the world. There has been a polio epidemic and poor Scotty was left with impetigo scars and problems with his eyes. His sister Abby also has problems with her kidney and her family cannot afford to buy her a new kidney.
Times are tough. Families receive no benefits and you need an appointment to even go to the emergency room.
Then there is Jose. His family were killed when he was just a little boy and he was sent to live in America with his new adopted family. Life was tough when he did not understand english.
One day his adopted family moved in with Scotty's family as money was tight.
As time goes on and they grow up, nothing is really mentioned of Echo until Scotty's mother dies in a car accident. This is when their lives are turned upside down.
This is definitely a must read. I strongly recommend this book to everyone!

Ohmy! What can I say about this series? Well, I can say 'hurry with the rest of them, please!' The 4th one ended with a cliffhanger and I am dying to know what happens.

I really enjoyed these books. They were fun to read and I can't wait to see what happens next!

Echo was a fun read, it has fun, moments, tragic and violent ones, but I enjoyed it. This book takes you 100 yrs ahead from where we left off on Baby. JK Accinni takes you into a future that really makes you think about the way we live now and what could happen if things don't improve for the better.

Abby, Scotty, Jose and Echo form a bond that helps them overcome their losses and so much more. Read this book and see what I mean. Happy reading

Review by: Chasity Morris on April 17, 2013 :
My Review will contain MANY Spoilers! Please do NOT continue on if you don't want to know what goes on in this book.

This one was a little bit harder for me to get into feeling it. We get a new gang of Characters, out with the old and in with the new! Writing Style stays the same, Characters POV's jump from one to the next. The storyline bounced from Scotty to Echo then Jose. Barney was another constant fixture as well.

Thought some facts could have been left out about Jose because they seemed to cause more questions than answers. Lets hope that these get answered within the next book or the one following and were not left hanging, like with Baby.

The book jumped a mere 10 years into the future of Scotty, Abby and their mom, along with the Diaz clan. I felt cheated out on those years lost. More death hits home with their story's, with a brief pause for their grievances. It was all chaotic and fast. Fast forward button, hit pause then rewind!

Another thing that stumped me was, that this book again (like Baby) has sadness. Always sad! I'm hoping this is not going to be a recurrence, now I'm not so sure. AT some point in the next book(s) would love to have my HEA. That or any of the Characters get whats coming to them, Justice!

We catch a glimpse of the mysterious "Womb" creature (previously in Baby,) finally have confirmation to Echo's and Baby's Quest!

One side character did remind me of Hannibal Lector (Silence of the Lambs.) Freaked me out! Again, not suitable for anyone under 18. Content includes- limited/mild talk about insist. *SICK*

You go through so many emotions in this story. At times you could be happy and laughing. At other times, you are depressed and terrified. There were parts I felt the author was just a little too brutal in her descriptions, for my taste.
With all that said I have to say that this series up to now, is well written. JK Accinni knows how to grab your attention and make you fall in love with the characters.
There is a hidden message in this series. I just hope that humans see it and start to make a difference.
I will start by giving Cake, as a peace offering ;)

Review by: Fenny Hotchpotchblog on April 16, 2013 :
A lot of new characters are being introduced as the story thickens and becomes more complicated.

Echo – the offspring of Baby – has been in hiding for 100 years before she meets Scotty and Jose in the woods. This starts off a lot of changes for Jose and Abby (Scotty’s sister) – who become a couple in the process – and Scotty, a teenager. Peter Gavin, a lawyer, starts working for them, helping them to find a refuge in Sarasota, Florida.

A three-some unite together – Tomas, his girlfriend Kelly and her brother Armoni – with no good in mind. In fact, they are so depraved it was hard for me to read their atrocities in detail.

Some other characters are introduced, like the soon-to-be Muslim president Omar and his mistress Lita, who is in actual fact a secret agent of the CIA.

The persona of each character is described in full. Here and there remarks are made that you know are going to be pivotal in the unfolding of the story, which is intricately woven together in the same way as Baby was written.

You can feel the story developing, leading up to something captivating. After reading Baby, an uncomplicated love story, this book sets a different tone of voice. Especially the startling revelation at the end makes me very curious as to how the story continues in Armageddon Cometh!

Review by: Lynn Worton on April 14, 2013 :
This is the second book in the Species Intervention #6609 series.

Scotty and Abby are brother and sister. They are both fantastic characters. Scotty is a lonely boy due to his illness. Abby, although sick herself, is more outgoing and popular. When their mom finally decides to leave her abusive husband for the open hills of Sussex County, all of their lives take a turn for the better.

Jose is also a wonderful character. Having survived a vicious attack that left his parents dead and his little baby sister kidnapped, Jose is suspicious of everyone and everything. It's not until he goes and lives with Scotty and Abby that he begins to trust and love again.

Echo is the offspring of Baby. She has been observing the humans, and getting ready to carry out the mission that Baby was meant to start a hundred years previously. Then she meets Scotty and thinks he's "The One".

I am completely enthralled with this series! I cannot say that I enjoyed it, but I will say that I absolutely loved it! I know this is a bit of a contradiction, but this story is as dark, if not darker, than the first one. There is violence and some really disturbing scenes that are definitely not for the faint of heart. The things that people (Armoni and Kelly) do for fun in this book is very disturbing indeed! However, I found myself completely absorbed in the story. I struggled to put my Kindle down! I nearly burnt supper whilst waiting for it to cook; it had me that engrossed! Again, I was like a rabbit caught in the headlights! The story twists and turns in such a way that I just HAD to know what was going on! The ending left me wanting to know more! I am now looking forward to reading the next book in the series, Armageddon Cometh.

J.K. Accinni is fast becoming one of my favourite authors. Her writing style is flawless and fast paced. She has created characters that are extremely lifelike; I find myself empathising with a lot of the characters, and completely disgusted with a few too. I must admit that this series brings out a lot of emotions in me! I don't recommend this for younger readers, but I highly recommend this book (and series) if you love science fiction or dystopian fiction. - Lynn Worton

I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
This is the second book in the Species Intervention #6609 series by A.K. Accinni that I have been able to read and review. I thought book one was crazy, Echo is ten times more crazy. I actually for it to be very disturbing and I was actually afraid that I was going to have very vivid nightmares from reading it. J.K. Accinni is such a detailed writer that my mind will forever be scarred from some of the events that occurred in this book. I thought I felt like committing after reading book one Baby, well it has nothing on Echo. Besides the disgusting things that occurred in this novel, I found it to somehow be the happier book. I felt like the characters in this book ended up better off then the characters from book one, obviously.
Echo was by far the best character. She was so cute and caring and I just wanted to pick her up and cuddle her. Abby,Jose and Scotty were decent, but they were just "there" compared to Echo. And don't even get me started on the "bad guys". They deserved what they got and all I have to say to Armoni is "Karma is a bitch".
Despite these books being completely disturbing due to the graphic details, I can't seem to put them down. I will continue the series for sure. I would recommend them to sci- fi lovers and NOT to the faint of heart.

Review by: jessica bridgers on April 07, 2013 :
I love how the author put a lot of details in her stories. Some will make you cringe, but overall I was able to visual the events that were happening very easy. This book was a little slower to start off. I kept reading, then I didn't want to stop. I finish this book in a few hours. My family was wondering where their dinner was. I finished the book not realizing how much time had past, as I was locked in my closet. There's a lot of mystery in this book. Events go unknown and unsolved. That is why the book was so interesting to me. Had to keep reading to find out what would happen next. Brother and sister make a great team. Not knowing who to trust. They try their best to blend in and keep unnoticed.. Echo. Oh how I love her! A pet as smart as a human. Where can I get one of those? She is very protective of her family. Love the way there's not anyone left from the first story, but everything that happened in the first story plays a big part in this story. Lots of unanswered questions. It's time for me to start Book 3. I'm so excited to start reading.
Thank you, JK Accinni

Read from March 22 to April 06, 2013 — I own a copy (I received this book from the author for review.)

I really enjoyed this book. I have to say I'm glad that I continued on from the first book (Baby) because Echo was a great read. I was a bit hesitant because of the brutality in Baby, but there was only one incident in this book. I found myself constantly thinking about this book whenever I put the book down to do something. My mind, no matter what I was doing, would drift back to the book and wonder what is going to happen next, or think to myself, what does this mean, or that mean, or will the plan be successful, etc. So of course with books that make me think like that, I can't go long with not reading on.

The characters of Jose, Abby, and Scotty all have sad background stories, but it is those backgrounds that causes them to have such a strong bond and form a family, a solid family that has each others back no matter what. The developments that result from their close proximity to Echo are amazing and develop far beyond the character of Netty in the first book. Echo is adorable and hard not to love and her relationship with the dog is too cute! The powers that she has are far more advanced than that of Baby, and in this book we get to see Echo use them to protect her loved ones.

The villains of the book were depicted so well that every time they were mentioned in the book, I scrunched up my nose in disgust. Especially when the character of Armoni was mentioned. Talk about disgusting and not just his evil deeds, but his description. Then when I found out his background story, I was even more disgusted, but felt pity for him at the same time. However, I still dislike him and his actions out weigh his abuse as a child. Some people come through better people and some people go on to commit evil as a result of abuse; Armoni has chosen the path of evil. Of course he is not alone in this, he has his partners Kelly and Thomas. These evil psychos are twisted!

One of the aspects of the book that I loved is that it all tied back to the first book. Some events that took place were directly tied back to Netty and her coin! Loved it! Makes me believe that Netty may come back into play in the other books. I have hope! I won't go in to detail into what all happens in the book because I want you to read it. LOL!

I loved the ending to this book, a bit sudden but it was much better than the first books ending. I'm eager to read the next book in the series, Armageddon Cometh.

My favorite quotes:

Echo to Scotty-
"I need you in my heart Brother Scotty."

Ginger on men-
"They never understood that a woman judges a man differently. Bright confident smile? Check. Any brains? Check. Does he have a good heart? Check. Does he have any money? Well, can't have everything. These characteristics made the sex good. Not the size of his c*ck. A woman only cares about the c*ck if it doesn't work."

I received a copy in exchange for a unbiased and honest review. I'm not really a big fan of sci fi books but this author has made it real easy to get involved on these books. She has such complex and interesting characters that you cant help but love them. These books make you actually think in them it is a interactive experience. That in itself is a great treat for a avid reader. Don't let the covers sway you from getting these books because the storyline was very engaging. I loved how she was able to give great visual imagery. I cant wait to read more in this series and highly recommend this to sci fi fanatics and readers in general.

Another great installment for the Species Series! J. K. Accinni does a wonderful job portraying the world she has envisioned for this series. In Baby's book there was a character, that I wanted to reach into the book myself to set him straight, and Armoni and his trio of crazies made me want to do the same in this book. When an author can make you feel that deeply, whether its a like or dislike about a character, you know that they are very talented and have accomplished what they set out to do. Tho this series is sci-fi, there is also some touching moments in it, that in my opinion even out some of the craziness of i and make it that much better. I mean craziness in a good way lol. Great series so far, now off to read the next on, Armageddon Cometh.

I received this book to give an honest review.



Man oh man I was captured from the first page and found myself not wanting to put it down.

You are taken into the future where the government is not like it use to be and everyone is pretty much poor. You will meet Echo one of the creatures whose brother was in book one named Baby. Also you will meet other characters Scotty, Abby, Jose who all play a big part.

The way the author described some of the horrific things that one of the not so good humans named Armoni I was like dang! I felt so bad for the victims, it had me cringe. Which it is truly hard for a book to do that, but this one did. You fall in love with Echo being as she is so well evolved, but yet at times reminds you of a child.

There are some type of gruesome scenes but they were not too bad.

It does seem to me that those that are weak or hurt are the ones that seem to find these creatures that are named Echo and Baby. As in the first book Netty was running away from her abusive husband and she discovered Baby. Scotty running away from his home when his father stops by and starts fighting with his mom ends up finding Echo. So that part is very interesting.

I did enjoy reading towards the end where Scotty and Echo go on rescue missions, I thought that was really cool how they help animals that need it.

Now the very end where Echo says what her mission really is, I can tell there will be more. Thank goodness I have book three so I can pick up where this book left off.

The only thing I would say about this book is that the way the blurb is written some of it was not in the story or if it was I truly missed it.

Here is the part: "Having fallen in love, the young Abby and Jose draw close, only to be separated by the transcendental Netty, who tries to use Abby as a conduit in her plan to rescue as much wildlife as they can before despicable political events bring on the specter of Armageddon."

Yes Abby and Jose fall in love with each other, I mean who wouldn't if you live together, but the part where Netty tried to use Abby as a conduit, there was no real mention of Netty using Abby

Fabulous!One of the most tender, original and beautifully written books I have read this year. The characters jump off the page. Fast paced surprises and twists. and may I mention the star of the show? Echo. What an ignamatic and funny alien. Definately up to something but I love her anyway!! Great second book in a series that promises a wonderful and original saga.

Echo is the one! She's my girl. I couldn't help but fall in love with her.
She is funny, enigmatic and loving. She just wants a perfect family. I feel
that. This second book is quite violent yet done with tenderness if that is possible. There is some very well defined nastiness. JK Accinni is particularly good with low-life characters!

I received this book from the Author for an honest review.

Echo is a continuation into a Sci-Fi thriller that will have you in its grip until the end. I wasn't sure how I would like the passing in years between Book 1 and Book 2, but once I started the story it was even better then the first one!

Based in a post apocalyptic Earth, Echo the offspring from Baby, awaits patiently for over a century for the "One" to come. With all new characters this could actually be a stand alone, but the Author has cleverly added in bits of the past that ends up complimenting this story to its fullest. We are given a deeper insight into what Echo is and where she comes from when she befriends a young boy traumatized by an abusive father, a teenage boy adopted into a family after his family is brutally murdered, and a dog named Barney. Just like in Baby, Echo comes into a broken family and heals them all showing them golden love from her and the womb. But this story couldn't be complete without a villain or two and the Author does not disappoint. You will meet one so disgustingly horrible that you dread whenever his name is mentioned.

Whether you like Sci-Fi thrillers with a bit of serial drama or extraterrestrial adventures where the characters grow tails and can heal, Echo is a great book filled with a twist in the end that foreshadows what is to come in Book 3. I can't wait!

I did the one thing I never do, read one book in a series directly after the other.
Ok, so sometimes I do it, but I prefer not to. But in this case, I had to.
Echo and her dog, Abbey and her love
Political strife, human depravity and animals and the environment suffering,
I had to know how it ends. But it is only the third book in the series.
It is amazing that an author can manage so many layers within one story.
This book is a paranormal story.
It is a socio political commentary.
It is a love story
It is a story about aliens
It is a book that one and all must read.
I am sure everybody will find something in this book that they absolutely adore,
If it happens to be Echo, well then you are in good company.
But most of all it is about Echo, a golden long tailed alien that will grab your heart and your imagination.
