Welcome to the Sci-Fi November version of Waiting on Wednesday! Sci-Fi November is hosted by Oh, The Books! and Rinn Reads, and Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. This month I’m highlighting upcoming science fiction titles that I’m dying to read. This week my pick is by an author that definitely needs more attention:
Echo 8 by Sharon Lynn Fisher. Releases in February 2015 from Tor Books. I’ve loved both of Sharon’s previous books, Ghost Planet and The Ophelia Prophecy, and I can’t wait for this one! Here’s what Goodreads says:
Three lives. Two worlds. One chance to save them all.
As a parapsychologist working for Seattle Psi, Tess has devoted her life to studying psychic phenomena. But when doppelgangers begin appearing from a parallel world that’s been struck by an asteroid, nothing in her training will help her survive what’s to come.
After dislocating to Seattle Psi from the other Earth, Jake is confined by a special task force for study. But when he drains life energy from Tess, almost killing her, it causes a ripple effect across two worlds — and creates a bond neither of them expected.
Ross is an FBI agent ordered to protect Tess while she studies Jake. His assignment is not random — he and Tess have a history, and a connection the Bureau hopes to use to its own advantage. By the time Ross realizes his mission could be compromised, it’s already too late — he’ll have to choose between his love for Tess and his duty to protect the people of his own Earth.
This sounds like fun, doesn’t it? I’m always up for parallel world stories, so we’ll see what Sharon does with it. Let me know what you’re waiting on this week!
