They wake on a deserted island. Fiona and Miles, high school enemies now stranded together. No memory of how they got there. No plan to follow, no hope to hold on to. Each step forward reveals the mystery behind the forces that brought them here. And soon, the most chilling discovery: something else is on the island with them. Something that won't let them leave alive.
Hi. Hello. I am 24 hours post Echoes and my heart is still racing just thinking about this book, the thrills and how it ended. I keep digging and I can't find anything on a second book, so I am crossing my fingers that there will be one because I NEED MORE. I need to know that Fiona and Miles are going to be okay and live happily ever after, and have beautiful blue haired children together. 

Okay, I am sorry. I am pulling myself out of my feelings so I can write a proper review. Here we go: 

Imagine getting a once in a life time internship with Briola Pharmacy, but your partner is your sworn enemy. You both hate each other and you already knows this is going to be the worst experience of your life. Now, imagine getting stranded on an Island after a plane crash and being trapped in Germany with everything to your name gone with the person you hate most. Welcome to Fiona and Mile's life. 

*This is 100% Fiona and Miles*

The book has two settings, The Island and Berlin. They each have to do with each other, BUT one in each universe. They aren't this happened, then this happened. It's more like: On the Island they have brief memories of Berlin and in Berlin they have brief memories of the Island with out have never been to either location. It's a little confusing to explain but it really works for this story and if you read Echoes you will 100% understand what I am trying to explain in this paragraph. 

In the Island chapters Fiona and Miles have crash landed on an island before having reached Berlin. Their pilot is dead and there is basically no hope but to survive until they can figure out a way off this mysterious island. The Island is tropical with Palm trees, beaches and caves. But what is stranger is a monster like brown bear that terrorizes the stranded duo. On exploring the Island they learn they are not alone as they previously thought, and are actually in an extreme amount of danger. Briola Pharmacy seems to have bigger plans for Fiona and Miles then just an internship. 


In Berlin the crash landing never happened and they made it all the way to the foreign country safely. They are checked in to a beautifully expensive hotel where to their dismay they are forced to share the same hotel room and then picked up to head to Briola. The only thing is Briola isn't who they said they were and there is no sign of them in Berlin. With no phone service and no way to contact anyone back in the states by text or social media they duo is trapped and on a dangerous race for their lives. 

From page one Echoes does not stop. The story sucks you in and suddenly you read the last page and you are desperately searching for more. I am extremely excited to see what else Reeds comes up with in this world because Echoes only touched the surface, as the reader I have tons of questions that I need answers too. 

Also, for anyone who loved the TV show Lost this book has major Lost vibes and will be right up your alley! Now all of my Lost GIFs make sense. (It is one of my favorite TV shows!) 


  1. I have this book on preorder so I get it Tuesday! Can't wait!!

    1. It was so amazing. I hope you enjoy when you get it!!

  2. I love all the Lost GIFs! Haha. I was JUST about to start this one so I could read and review it before its release date. It makes me incredibly happy that you loved it so much, and now I'm looking forward to it even more. However, I don't like that you're NEEDING more, because what will I do once I finish???
