I'll read almost anything if it sounds good, but I tend to read mostly YA, and a lot of those are paranormal or dystopian. I have started to branch out into more contemporary lately.

The Last Echo (Body Finder Series #3)

The Last Echo - Kimberly Derting I think that The Last Echo was probably my favorite book of The Body Finder series so far. It still had some slow parts, but I felt like there was more going on than in the previous book, especially since Desires of the Dead was a bit disappointing.So, at the beginning of The Last Echo, Violet is working a case with Sara Priest’s team. She finds a girl’s body in a freezer in a warehouse, who is believed to have been killed by The Collector. At this point, Violet realizes that she wishes she could do more with her power, stopping crimes, rather than just discovering them after the fact.We meet some new characters in Crystal, Sam, and Gemma. Since they all have abilities, they add some interesting dynamics to the story. We also get to learn a little bit more about Sara and Rafe, which I really enjoyed. Rafe is such a mysterious character that I really enjoyed learning a little bit more about him. We also get to see Violet struggle with her ability, as she tries to figure out a way to make it more useful. The villain is also all sorts of creepy. My biggest complaint is that there just isn’t enough of Jay or Violet’s friends.I really enjoyed the story line of The Last Echo. I felt like it had more depth and levels to the plot than the previous books, and that there was a lot more going on than I even realized. I also found it to be a bit more creepier. There were moments where I considered putting the book down until the next day. I think I even had a nightmare or two about it. Definitely a spine-tingler for me.The climax was intense and definitely had my heart in my throat, but the actual ending felt like it’s leading to darker and more dangerous places, and I’m really interested in seeing how everything plays out.Overall, I really enjoyed The Last Echo. I felt like it was the best book of the series so far, set up the next book really well, and definitely took the story deeper. I would definitely recommend it.You can also read this and other reviews on my blog, Mommy's Reading Break
