The countdown clock reads ten days until the end of the world. The citizens are organized. Everyone's been notified and assigned a duty. The problem is . . . no one knows for sure how it will end.
Energy-hungry Mages are the most likely culprit. They travel toward a single location from every corner of the continent. Fueled by the two suns, each Mage holds the power of an element: air, earth, fire, metal, water, or ether. They harness their powers to draw energy from the most readily available resource: humans.
Ashara has been assigned to the Ethereal task force, made up of human ether manipulators and directed by Loken, a young man with whom she has a complicated past. Loken and Ashara bond over a common goal: to stop the Mages from occupying their home and gaining more energy than they can contain. But soon, they begin to suspect that the future of the world may depend on Ashara's death.
Ashara, mostly known as "Asha" throughout ECHO, is an eighteen-year- old who just found out she's an Ethereal—meaning she can manipulate ether. Ever since her brother died at the hands of a Mage, Asha has been itching for revenge. When she's called to the Council to join the Ethereal task force, she's both terrified and thrilled. On the one hand, she's not trained for this. With the countdown clock ticking downward, maybe she has no business on the task force. On the other hand, she may finally get the chance for the revenge she's been craving.
I chose Nathalie Emmanuel to represent Asha. Asha's family has a Caucasian background, but her late father had African ancestry.
About Alicia Wright Brewster
Alicia Wright Brewster is a mild-mannered lady of average height and above average paranormal obsession. By day, she works in an office. At night she is an author, an electronics junkie, and a secret superhero. (Please don't ask what her superpower is; that's not very polite.)
