Ecko is an assassin, that has had very possible upgrade, done to his body, from, enhanced skin, telescopic eyes, and razor sharp senses. He is not the biggest job of hi life when it suddenly goes wrong and he has to exit from a very hostile situation very quickly. He drops of the side of the building and into another world.

He comes to in a tavern called Wanderer, and in this world with two moons there is no technology at all. Just magical creatures and an evil force that is threatening the whole world's existence. With his enhancements, Ecko realises that he holds some of the powers to win against this evil.

This is such a difficult book to quantify, being part dystopian cyberpunk sci-fi and mostly a fantasy book. It is hinted at that the world that he has fallen into maybe a augmented reality, but it seems so real to him that he isn't sure. Not a bad read in the end, but could have easily bee 100 pages shorter and the writing could have been tighter.

There’s nothing I love more than finding a book that pushes the boundaries, especially when it gives new meaning to the word “imagination”, and Ecko Rising is one of those books. Blending together dystopian sci-fi with fantasy, Danie Ware was able to capture my attention and keep it throughout the duration of the book. Ecko – our anti-hero – is a loveable and wacky character that kind of makes you grin whenever he talks. I don’t know why that is, either way he out-shined all of the characters by far (even though I love Lugan too) and always had me grinning like a fool. What’s more is that, Danie Ware continuously makes you wonder what’s going to happen next and funnily enough my predictions were always wrong. In other words, it’s bloody good fun and incredibly entertaining.


Coming Soon!
I particularly like Danie Ware’s writing style. Yes, I know usually I bitch and complain whenever people write in dialects, but it wasn’t so bad this time around. Other than that though, the writing style isn’t as clunky with over-descriptive rambling, and yet you know exactly what the author is trying to say. I think that also contributed to the fast-paced reading and frankly, I think some writers can learn something from Danie Ware’s way of writing.

The editing was good, I love the cover, the only thing I would have changed about Ecko Rising is that I would have preferred it as a hardback book. I don’t know why that is, but I personally would have liked this trilogy in hardback… that’s just my opinion though.

Personally I felt empty when I finished Ecko Rising though, merely because I have to wait like everyone else to get my hands on the sequel, Ecko Burning. Alas, it gives me time to process everything, and who knows I might just read it again before the sequel gets published, just for the hell of it. So, keep your eyes open for this book and for the sequel. If you like whacky genre-bending awesome, you’re going to love Ecko Rising and I’m sure Ecko Burning will be just as good, if not better.

I just really, really hate the "psychiatric drugs make people into sheep" trope.

I haven't completed this book and don't think I will. I can't get into it at all. It's gotten some good reviews by other readers, but I couldn't get past the first 60 pages.
