Rejection. Betrayal. Manipulation. Abuse.

Though the book title and cover suggest an epic other-world fantasy, the storyline of this novel by first-time author Dori Hartley is rooted in something far more sinister - the horrors too often inflicted by humans on each other. Who needs vampires and demons when cheating husbands, abusive mothers, and murdering sons are all too happy to step out of the understudy's shadow?

And so the story goes in Hartley's gripping page-turner, "Angels and Echoes," a character study in how far one can be stretched in the directions of selfless love and pure evil before the deeds themselves catapult us into either angelic or demonic status.

From the first page, the reader is immediately thrust into the parallel storylines of New Yorker Olivia Lang and Kentucky-based Evan McQuayle, two protagonists each fighting their own demons that unfortunately know no cultural or geographic boundaries - breast cancer and child abuse.

I offer no spoilers on how their two very different worlds collide, but when they do, it is with a force so powerful that the reader truly won't see it coming. And once you see it, you won't want to look away even for a moment, no matter how difficult some passages are to read. It is as if the author grabs you by the nape of the neck and forces you to stare into the sun, never allowing you to break your gaze. Hartley is not afraid to display in grotesque, almost eye-blinding, color what many of us would prefer remain greyed out in the darkness.

But here's the thing - and this is a spoiler I don't mind sharing - goodness always wins in the end.

From the moment I started reading this book, I couldn't put it down. I kept reading fast and furious because I was so anxious to see what would happen next in this tale of twisted horror and the powerful brilliance of overcoming incredible odds.

Dori Hartley's novel Angels and Echoes is one of the best novels I have ever read, hands down. From the opening page to the last sentence, I was completely enraptured by this book and its characters. I could not put it down, and finished it in just two days! Her novel is deep and dark and she tells of horrors none of us would ever want to face. The horrors she writes about are not of the new and trendy kind. There are no vampires or werewolves. But there are intense moments and real emotions displayed on every page. And it is in her storytelling of these horrors that her characters come to life. There is so much depth to her characters that I immediately "missed" them when I finished the book. I hope she writes a sequel, as I am very eager to meet Olivia, Evan and Kitty again!

This book was next to impossible for me to put down. I read it in 4 sittings and every moment I had to be away from it I loathed.
This story grabbed me from the first sentence to the dark climax to the beautiful ending.
It's a dark horror novel, but not in the way you expect a horror novel, there are no ghosts, no vampires, no demons, just the real horrors that happen to real people every day. The internal and external ones. And theres no Buffy to make the problems these people have go away, just their own will power to fight, survive and keep living.
I'd go so much further into depth about why I felt the way I feel about the two main charaters, but I don't want to spoil a single moment of discovery in this novel for anyone. I read it with out knowing a thing about it, and to me the discovery of each new detail is really part of the experiance.

On one hand I want this author to write a sequal because I was sad when I had to leave the world of these characters, I felt so much for them, but at the same time, I don't want her to write them anymore horrors.. I really do want to immagine them happily ever after. Hopefully Ms. Hartley will create us a new novel to read soon, she really has mastered the art of human darkness vs. the will to survive it.
After being pulled into this world and these lives that she created I can't wait to dive into the next one.

this is a great book... not an easy breezy read, but i am sure that all of us will know someone to whom this is close... it is extreme to some, but from what i know it does not go beyond the reality of life for so many... a great book to read, it requires your commitment to finish it and to respect the charactors who give their all... enjoy, but also respect it...
some people i know will not believe that this really happens... believe it, it is the sick history of children of every make and model... the sickness is everywhere and only by openning the "oh, that is just not possible here" can this be eradicated...
read this book...

What an amazing ride! From first word to last, Angels and Echoes never let's you go! Ms.Hartley doesn't seem to invent character's, she merely opens the door and allows you a peek into a totally realistic world of good vs evil. You care about these people, you empathize with them. You celebrate their victories and you weep for their pain. It's a slice of real life here, not always easy, not always pleasant, but totally satisfying!
