Overall it was a good story just would have been better with the background from the other series apparently.
Don't mistake me; it's a good book. But,
There's a little bit too much vagueness about a mysterious, painful event that is mentioned throughout the book, a lot. I started getting annoyed with Wisteria's attitude & actions towards Kett. This didn't help me relate to, or have too much interest in Wisteria the person. I didn't feel the menace and darkness enough. I know how well MCD can sink the reader into the moment and it doesn't happen enough or to depth. And a personal pet peeve...a wee bit overkill on describing the inanimate, e.g. places, clothes, cars, buildings, food.
Kett is a staple in all the Dowsers, and he is well rounded there and here. Wisteria needs some fleshing out and more concentration on her nifty job as a reconstrutionist.
MCD will get us there. There is huge potential to this side series. No matter what, she rocks.
This story is about Wisteria. She has been tasked with reconstructing a really weird incident in a cemetery, but typically that's where her job ends. Throwing in Kett makes everything that much stranger and ends up drawing both Wisteria and her cousin into some sort of vampire filled drama. It was interesting to get the inside scoop (or at least a teaser) about Wisteria. She and her cousin have some trauma in their past that we don't fully understand in this book (but I hope we will later).
So, the larger story - newly turned vampires (young boys) are dying. Since nobody should be turning anyone, this alarms both the vampire governing body and the witch governing body. Wisteria and Kett (and Jasmine) are tasked with hunting down who is doing this and making it go away. Along the way, we see Kett be bland, Wisteria be uptight, and Jasmine be the most interesting of all of them. While I'm sure there is a great story lurking in later books, this clearly was intended to simply set everything up. The last part was enough to perk me up and get me to want more, but it was tough.

Author Meghan Diana Doidge, subtly and deceptively weaves a magical mysterious book. That includes witches, Vampires and Necromancers. The characters are introduced in a funny gently loving funny way. I do recognise that had I realised I wouldn't necessarily have read a story with all these components. But it was with such tongue in cheek, enchanting authorship I would highly recommend this thoroughly we!l written tale.
The layers of description in this book is incredible, Wisteria we had met in the Dowser series, she came across as stiff and I saw her as a lot older. Getting to know her in the start of this series has been a complete turnaround. I loved all the twists and turns in the story, the interaction between her and her cousin was so effortless and natural. The underlying current between her and Kett, that she is trying to tell herself to be afraid of him yet I think she is lying to herself there. The biggest twist is at the end and you just think NO you cannot end it here!!! Desperate now for the release of the next book. Well done Meghan another treat and the start of another fabulous series I love reading your books.
Wisteria is a complex character that is strong but seems to be slightly scared of the power she could be wielding.
I love Jasmine! The power she seems to have over computers is brill.
Kett, well he's just Kett. But I'm positive he may have a 'thing' for Wisteria. But we'll see.
Cant wait for more 😁
Great storyline, brillant characters. Not disappointed 😊 more of the same
Catching Echoes is a stand-alone spin off of another series. I have not read any of the other books, so some of the references in this novel didn't mean anything to me, but I think it does still stand by itself. I really enjoyed the description of magic and reconstructions in this realm. The main character can use residual magic in a location to make visual reconstructions of past events, which are used to solve magic-related offenses. The vampire is a cool character and I liked the dynamic between them. I would definitely read the next one.
Kettil, the executioner of the vampire conclave, who has featured heavily in other books by this author, is paired with her as they investigate a series of connected magical happenings involving human teenagers, vampire blood and the undead.
The ending nicely concluded the mystery but interestingly leaves you wanting more. More Wisteria and more Kett. Well worth the read. Love this author.
First in a series but the story arc concludes with a hefty hook to purchase latter volumes, I may well do.
The pace is consistent and the characters dimensioned which keeps the pages turning.
A recommended read
