Overview

November 2712

Adem Adamend still has it rough. After being betrayed by a man he idolized, he left the IBI for a job that better fits his skills. And now he has a boss who likes to break his nose twice a week in combat training.

But when a local college senior is brutally murdered by the dream of a sandstorm brought to life--and the monsters hiding within--Adem finds himself swiftly ripped from his training curriculum and tossed into a web of secrets and lies in the heart of the city he calls home.

With threads pointing to the ruthless Columbian mob, a cyberattack threat against multiple federal agencies, and the shadow of the man who sponsored his corrupt ex-mentor, Adem knows he has little time before the body count rises exponentially.

In order for Adem to solve the case, however, he'll have to contend with old wounds still raw, a new team he's struggling to trust, and his own developing echo powers.

The last of which may pose the most dangerous threat of all.

In my review of Echoes, the first book set in Therin Knite's Echoverse, I expressed the hope that the next book in the series would give some explanation of the "Fall" which led to the creation of the United Republic of Earth, in which Adem Adamend works in the year 2712. While I am disappointed that Epitaphs does not further develop this back story, I still enjoyed Adem’s new adventure, and the shocking revelations about Dynara Chamberlain and Ric Weiss will certainly have me coming back when Encodings is published this fall. I received a free copy of Epitaphs from the author in exchange for an honest review.

It's been a while since I've read Echoes (review here), but I didn't have to spend much time scratching my head, trying to remember what happened because the author has woven in details from the previous book that jogged my memory, which is much appreciated. From Echoes, I knew I enjoyed spending time with Adem Adamend, and Epitaphs reminded me why - he's always the smartest person in the room, has a sardonic sense of humor and, although he has very few friends, is fiercely loyal.  Even with Adem's high level of competence and intelligence, he made some mistakes in this story and seemed a little off his game, something I attribute to all the internal conflict and confusion swirling around in his brain, things a few of the other characters are encouraging him to deal with, but he isn't ready to work out at the moment.  I suspect things may come to a head in Echoes #3. The supporting cast of characters are diverse, amusing, and wicked scary at times and I'd love to know more backstory on a few of them - especially Jin and his mysterious past.  The dialogue between Adem and Jin was completely natural, entirely believable, and often humorous. My previous review stated Echoes has shades of the movie, Inception, and Epitaphs is no different.  The dream sequences and rules of dream creation fascinated me and this book contains an intriguing mystery, exciting action sequences with a touch of gore, and vivid imagery and I may have enjoyed Epitaphs even more than Echoes. At the end of this book, most of the case is resolved, but the reader is given a hint of what's to come for Adem, so I'll be impatiently waiting for the next book in this series! I received a digital copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
