    1. 3 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/2015/01/29/bUPDATED: Giveaway of 3 copies of Echo 8 (US/CANADA) 2/2/15 - 2/11/15 bibliosanctum/2015/02/02/gEcho 8 is the first novel I’ve read by Sharon Lynn Fisher, but I’d known from before that her work is usually characterized by mixture of Science Fiction and Romance elements. That sounded just fabulous to me, and well, ultimately I believe one’s overall enjoyment of this book will entirely depend on how much you prefer in your balance o [...]

    2. An intriguing idea but the execution was not so greatThere were moments that I wanted to slap both the hero and the heroine! Some of their actions were bordering on TSTLI also didn't appreciate the almost other man vibe. There was some kissing (view spoiler)[while draining life energy (hide spoiler)], but I didn't appreciated it

    3. Geekery + romance suspense = <3. That's my geeky way of saying I enjoyed this near-future scifi romance, LOL. Three years from now, Earth hasn't changed. Still a McD's on every corner. Then, humans arrive from an alternate Earth- and promptly kill in their confusion and strange, vampire-like hunger. They can't touch others without killing them, but they can't resist their hunger either. Sharon Lynn Fisher's Echo 8 follows Tess, the scientist attempting to find the cause humanely- and the FBI [...]

    4. I loved this author's Ghost Planet. It was a touching, amazing sci-fi romance with characters that made me believe both in their love story and in the crazy events happening around them. This book, was unfortunately, not that good.Tess is a parapsychologist working for Seattle Psi in an exciting program known as the Echo project. Echoes are alternate selves from an alternate universe, where an asteroid has all but destroyed Earth. There is a huge problem with the relocation - Echoes have to feed [...]

    5. This author has a fabulous touch when it comes to giving readers the perfect balance of science and romance, and I really enjoyed this. My official comments: "Sharon Fisher has done it again—a seamless blend of thrilling sci-fi and scorching romance."

    6. 3.5 of 5 stars - originally reviewed on my blog, Not Yet Readnotyetread/2015/02/revRead a guest article from the author discussion: Our Fascination with Parallel Worlds and Selvesnotyetread/2015/01/nicEcho 8 is a science fiction romance themed around the possibility of parallel worlds and what happens when one of those worlds has a major catastrophe that somehow triggers people from that world appearing in our world. They appear as faded echoes of themselves that bereft of their own source of en [...]

    7. Sharon Lynn Fisher has not taken the easy way with any of her first three books. In each she has written stand-alone books that require new world building, back-story and character development. In Echo 8 there are not one but two complex worlds. Both are a version of Earth but both are very different. One has been almost destroyed by an asteroid strike and one is still OK. I could not decide if one was our Earth or not.What brings them together are the Echo’s. These are people pulled into Tess [...]

    8. I'm glad this book started toward the middle and went backwards because I don't feel like I wasted any time trying to figure out whether I liked the book. It wasn't my cup of tea. So, no rating because I didn't finish it.

    9. Originally published at Sci-Fi Romance QuarterlyEcho 8 takes place in multiple alternate versions of Seattle, some of them better off than our own, and some much, much worse. But all close analogs. If you have read anything about the parallel universes theory, even fictional versions thereof, you’ll understand exactly what I mean.The story takes place in a very near future: it’s only 2018 in this world. Which means that it is also an alternate to our own, because the Seattle Center Tower has [...]

    10. I made the mistake of starting Echo 8 after ten o’clock at night. I should know better because I’m familiar with Fisher’s previous books. Echo 8 grabbed me from the first chapter and took me hostage. Thankfully it’s not a super long read so I was able to safely neglect home and family until I made it quickly to the last page. In fact, it grabbed me before the first chapter. Two quotes precede the story, one by Dean Radin, controversial parapsychologist, and one by Emily Bronte, author of [...]

    11. ECHO 8 shows the reader the possibility of parallel worlds. “Fades” or Echos have been showing up from a world which was struck by an asteroid. They must feed on the energy of the humans on the world they’ve phased to in order to ‘survive’. Dr. Tess Caufield is a parapsychologist who works for Seattle Psi and she’s given the opportunity to study one of the Echos – Echo 8. Her handler/protector, FBI Agent Ross McGinnis, is there to protect her from Echo 8 and was assigned especially [...]

    12. This is my favorite of Sharon Lynn Fisher's novels so far, which is saying quite a lot. Though she always provides readers with big surprises and unique twists in perspective, some of the hairpin turns in Echo 8 were amazing! I was totally caught up in this imaginative world--a Seattle not so different from the one I know but yet with some marked changes. The struggles and conflicts between the three main characters were so believable--and at key points in the story, either heart-pounding or hea [...]

    13. I received a free advanced copy through first reads.This is a fantastic paranormal science fiction book that I highly recommend to anyone with an interest in the genre. With a great setting and phenomenal character development, and a surprising antagonist that you wont see coming. I am not sure what else I can say that is not already in the blurb for the book or would be a major spoiler(and nobody likes those).I think the best way to judge how much someone likes a book is to ask if they would r [...]

    14. Some time in the near future, there are two Earths. They exist in the same time and place in alternate dimensions. An asteroid hit on Earth Two causes more than physical destruction. It also pushes some of the inhabitants of that Earth right into the path of the inhabitants of Earth One. On Earth One, they barely exist, fading to nothingness (hence the term Echo) if they are not fed. But feeding involves draining energy from Earth One’s inhabitants, just by touching them. This basic premise of [...]

    15. I bought this book by mistake. I09 directed me to this link although I had clicked on another book, and after reading the plot summary I decided to get it anyway. I will say that romance is not my favorite genre, and I didn't completely know what I was getting into.In terms of the SF components, the author gives a sufficient premise to the book that if I don't particularly question or look past the surface, the premise works as well as most urban fantasies. Definitely not hard SF, nor is the boo [...]

    16. A very intense book that was filled with a lot of things at stake. The characters were all very strong and had their own issues to deal with. Plus the way the story unfolds was really different and had a very unique flair with the two earths.Things that I loved about this book:The Three Main CharactersTess, Ross, Jake all are dynamic. Each of these characters feel like they are in a situation that is complicated. I love complications, but when Jake takes some energy from Tess, this makes Ross fe [...]

    17. In the not too distant future, it’s easy to imagine a parallel Earth having a catastrophe and people flying across the space-time continuum. I know many people might balk at the idea, but when presented by Sharon Lynn Fisher, it’s totally plausible. Dr. Tess Caufield is a parapsychologist and is totally devoted to studying psychic phenomenon. So the opportunity to observe and interact with these people who have been displaced from their Earth to ours, she’s all in. She might also be in ove [...]

    18. This is the third book I’ve read by Sharon Lynn Fisher, and I’ve devoured each one in large gulps and then looked around for more, only to realize I’d have to wait for more new books to be published. This is one of those authors that I wish would write faster, I just can’t get enough of her wonderful stories. They have all had unique worlds, storylines and fantastic characters in common, but otherwise stand on their own. This one involves Tess, a parapsychologist studying the phenomena k [...]

    19. This was a quick, easy read -- I finished it in one sitting. Echo 8 is a blend of science fiction and romance that manages to treat both genres with respect. In other words, it works as both a science fiction novel and as a romance novel. The scifi is exciting and plausible enough to suspend disbelief for, and the romance is engaging without taking over the story.I particularly enjoyed the worldbuilding element -- the idea that a disaster caused some people from one dimension to transfer into an [...]

    20. This is a science fiction story with a strong romance element. It has a love triangle that is complex and very fun to read. Unlike most love triangles, the circumstances dictate that there isn’t really a “who will she pick” angle, just a lot of layers that made it feel unique.I found the romance in the story was hot and steamy, but also very fast. The relationships proceed at a breakneck speed which seems almost too fast, until you realize the entire book moves at the same speed. Then it s [...]

    21. If you are looking for an easy sci-fantasy romance, you will love this book.I liked this author right from the start and with each new book I like her more and more. Even though I've read hundreds of books, her ideas always pleasantly surprise me and leave me intrigued as to how the story will be resolved. The pacing is perfectly balanced. The plot moves along in an orderly fashion. The characters show growth, sensible motivation, and are relatable three dimensional people. This story did have a [...]

    22. Echo 8, by Sharon Lynn Fisher, is set in a near-future version of Seattle, not quite ours but very close. Tess Caufield is a parapsychologist with Seattle Psi, Ross McGinnis is an FBI agent assigned as her bodyguard, and Jake Parker is a captive Echo, a person displaced from an alternate Earth nearly destroyed by a asteroid. The FBI is involved because the Echoes, not all of them captive, are dangerous, energy vampires needing to feed on native humans to survive. As Tess and Ross delve deeper in [...]

    23. A science fiction romance about doing the right thing, taking risks to learn something new, valuing your own life, trust, and facing your fears. It’s a star-crossed lovers triangle with energy transfers, mental connections (telepathy), dislocation (teleportation), an alternate world, affinity (people being drawn together), and doppelgangers (alternate selves). There is a philosophical theme of nature vs. nurture and how our choices define us – Ross and Mac are wildly different, but basically [...]

    24. I had the most divine pleasure of receiving an advanced uncorrected proof. I rarely give a perfect score for anything, but when you are holding it your hands it must be given its credit. I did not have a cover photo on my novel. The only thing to sway my rating was the thrilling emotional ride I took with characters. I would create a new genre for this novel, Science Possibility. Characters with depth ranging from total numbing hopelessness to spirit of courage.

    25. With ‘Echo 8,’ Sharon Lynn Fisher is truly beginning to hit her stride. The action is tighter than in her previous book and the romance, better integrated.Full review posted at PopMythology: popmythology/echo-8-re

    26. Sharon Fisher at her best! This is my favorite book of hers thus far. A must read for the sci-if romance geek at heart!
