I preferred it when life came in tidy packages. When it didn’t — when something went awry — I was exceedingly skilled at packaging it back up. It was my job to do so after all. I was a reconstructionist. I collected the puzzle pieces, then I gave those pieces to an investigative team to sort out. I didn't ask questions. I didn't offer answers. I saw. I recorded. I moved on. I didn't dwell or obsess. I didn’t hunt down suspects. I didn’t follow clues to find a killer. And I certainly didn’t work side by side with anyone. Least of all, a vampire who I strongly suspected might turn out to be the major missing component at the end of the trail. Then I saw something I couldn't forget. It wasn't the bloodiest thing I'd ever seen. It wasn't even close. But it haunted me. I didn't like being haunted.
And I couldn't figure out how to get it out of my head.
Someone was killing teenaged boys in the Pacific Northwest. Despite my misgivings, if I could help catch a killer, I had to at least try.
This 68,000 word urban fantasy is the first book in the Reconstructionist Series by author Meghan Ciana Doidge. Author’s note: The ideal reading order of Catching Echoes (Reconstructionist 1) is after the first six books in the Dowser Series and the three books in the Oracle series, but it's not actually necessary to read the Dowser or the Oracle series before reading the Reconstructionist Series.

Catching Echoes is the first book in Doidge's new series, Reconstructionist. It can be read alone; Doidge gives enough back story to the characters that you will have a good understanding of who they are in the Adept world. However, that would be shame because you have a much more intimate look into the characters if you have read the other series. Much like the first book in both the Dowser and Oracle series, Catching Echoes draws you in and leaves you wishing fervently that the next book in the Reconstructionist series was already out. Luckily for all Doidge is a faster writer than most so the wait between books is never too long. Having read the previous books I went into this book with an intense love of Kett and a weary curiosity about Wisteria. She didn't seem friendly in the Dowser series and this book hints at details as to why she is that way while setting up the second book in the series for explanations. In a real life example, it's like someone who is actually a really friendly person, but has been burned one too many times OR has epic RBF, maybe both. I really liked her at the end of this book and I really enjoyed her interactions with both her cousin and Kett...but especially her cousin, there is a wealth of feeling between those two that is usually hard to convey in writing but Doidge manages to do just that. As far as the ending, all I can say is that I didn't see it coming... in a good way. Looking back, there were subtle clues in the story (Doidge tends to do this with all of her books). That's all I'm going to say on that subject though. I am really looking forward to rereading this knowing what I now know. It's going to change the story for me and make it even better.
Meghan has done it again! I am a fan of all of her books but this one had me in its grip from beginning to end. I loved the interactions between Wisteria and Kett and I look forward to reading more. I am hooked!
Meghan is a fantastic writer.this new series already has me panting for the next book.
