My Thoughts: And I thought The Body Finder and Desires Of The Dead were awesome books. The Last Echo is by far the best in the series so far.

We are back with Violet who can see imprints. Remember, she can see the imprints of dead people on the killers bodies. Jay, her super cool boyfriend is also around throughout the novel. He is there to help Violet get through life with her special abilities.

Violet is working with a group of people who have similar abilities to hers. There is Sam, Sarah, Rafe, Gemma, and Krystal. Each person contributes to the group in their own way.

The Last Echo has a few bad guys dipped in. First, there is James Nu, who killed his whole family. He and Violet run into each other and he takes a liking to her, and is drawn to her. Yuck.

Than, there is the main bad guy. I won't say his name but he is known as The Girlfriend Collector, creepy much? His goal is to find a girl who will love him. And none of them do the job to his liking so he has to move on to the next one. Just like the other novels, we see into his head and get to go through the motions with him. We get to see him pick out his victims, bathe his victims, feed his victims, and than dispose of his victims. Yuck. And the worst, we know one of the girls who becomes his victim!

As far as bad guys go, he's definitely creepy and the whole book I wanted the team to find him and fix the problem, so he can't hurt anymore girls.

A lot of people are mentioning love triangles for this book? Is there one? I won't tell! But yes, Rafe is more in this book and he is nicer around V and he actually seems like he's starting to care. He is always so aloof and keeps to himself, it's hard to really ever know what the guy is thinking.

We are back with Violet, who can see (and feel and hear) the echoes of those that have been murdered and the matching imprints on their killers. Unlike the last books, Violet doesn't have to deal with her "gift" alone. She is now part of a top-secret group with other kids like herself who have these kinds of powers. Problem is that the more she gets closer to them-and Rafe more specifically, the farther away she gets to her boyfriend Jay. Like the last time, there is a new serial killer on the loose. This one seems crazier and more disturbing than the serial killers in the last book. He is known as "the collector", he kidnaps girls and pretends they are his girlfriends.

Once again, I LOVE the chapters we get to read from the murderers POV and I am completely blown away by how wickedly-creepy and disturbing Kimberly Derting can write these scenes. More than once, I was sure that I heard strange noises coming from outside my house and I was a little scared to go to the restroom. I have a really bad habit of biting my nails and let me tell you I have almost no nails left to bite after this book. Although this is the third time Violet is dealing using her "gift" to try to help find the killer, the story does not get boring or repetitive. Not only is Violet "the collector's" next girlfriend prospect, she is also in danger from at least two new sources that I was not expecting, and one of them leaves one heck of a cliffhanger!

I loved that we get to learn more about Rafe, Sarah and the rest of the kids in Violets top secret group. I hope we continue to learn more about them in the next book. And can I just say that it was so nice that Violet has both of her parents who are actually around.

Like her first two books, we get a better understanding of how twisted and mentally deranged these murderers are by reading their POV. In this book, Violet have two killers after her. Nothing too scary but like any victim Violet will never be able to forget that experience.
I hate Love Triangle but one thing I admired about Violet, she seem to know who she wants to be with instead of being undecided between the two boys. I was always a Jay's fan, but learning more about Rafe really made me...question things. I blame the author for this, Jay and Violet had some very sweet moment but in this book Rafe was more...interesting!?

Dying for the next Body Finder novel? Well, readers won't be disappointed. The book picks up from the last novel with Violet working in a group to find murderers. Violet and Jay's romance remains sweet and endearing, but now Rafe is thrown into the mix. Rafe makes things more confusing than ever for Violet. She has to interact with him and answer to him for their different assignments. She also has to worry about catching the attention of a murderer who has a sick crush developing.

This novel focuses on The Girlfriend Collector, an evil man who takes women he believes will love him forever...when they don't he decides he no longer needs them around and hunts for the next poor soul. The author will really draw the reader in with this plot line. The reader gets to know one of the victims very well and will feel much more empathy than merely learning of a faceless character dying. If it is possible, the reader also gets to know Violet, Jay, and Rafe much better too. The reader will be rooting for Violet throughout the novel as the suspense deepens the closer she gets to the murderous Girlfriend Collector.

The author is very good at setting the tone of the novel. The reader will finish each chapter and have to continue reading or the last scenes will remain in the back of his/her mind. There is an eerie undertone throughout the novel that spikes in certain key places. The scenes flow together very well, the reader will be fully aware of everything Violet knows and experiences. The ending is surprising, there are many twists the reader may look forward to in this book. The Last Echo is recommended to young adult/teen readers.

*Complimentary copy received for review, this does not affect my opinion in any way*
