Echoes of Balance is a YA urban fantasy by debut author Cally Ryanne. With a strong paranormal storyline and a confident heroine, this novel kicks off The Ways trilogy with mystery, suspense, and an intriguing mix of supernatural elements many will find familiar and enjoyable. Chloe Moraine, one of the last remaining members of a race known as the Naimei, has given up her tedious study of The Ways for the more exciting occupation of hunting vampires. When the balance of the universe is jeopardized by the return of demonic forces, she’s reluctantly pulled back into her ancient heritage. The role is more challenging than she expects. Chloe wrestles with her own instincts and faces tough choices as the world she lives in draws near to impending doom. I found Chloe an interesting character. She’s laid back and confident in her abilities, takes things in stride, and tackles danger without batting an eyelash. I enjoyed the fact that she was comfortable in her own skin and willing to entertain the idea that vampires and demons might not be following the agenda everyone else assumes. My favorite scenes were those in which Chloe displays her fighting skills. Every action scene left me waiting with anticipation for the next one. The author’s writing style is smooth and easy to read, yet sophisticated enough to really bring out the supernatural elements in authentic detail. I felt the pace was steady and consistent, with good tension building toward an ending that left me very interested in finding out what happens next. Echoes is a mysterious, promising read from beginning to end, and I’m certainly looking forward to the sequel and Chloe’s next adventure!

Echoes of Balance (The Ways Trilogy #1) by Cally Ryanne Chloe Moraine is a Naimei,  a supernatural race that keeps the universe in balance.  The Original Demons are attempting to return to the human realm.  Chloe and her family must prevent that from happening.  Unfortunately, she is tasked with the unexciting assignment of watching a human high school girl and discover how she fits into the equation.  Although that mission ends up being more interesting then she would have thought. Echoes of Balance is a refreshing Young Adult Paranormal novel.  I enjoyed the characters in this book; they are mysterious.  It is hard to predict who the good guys are versus the bad guys.  Their morals are shades of grey instead of black and white. This makes the story unpredictable.  It is not obvious who Chloe can trust.   If you enjoy books that have: vampires, Naimei, demons;  High school drama; and an evil plot to take over the world, this book is for you. The story concludes with a cliff hanger, so I am anxiously awaiting the second book in The Ways Trilogy.   ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.
