Overview

Echoes Rising: Book One Berlin, 1943. An encounter with an old friend leaves German physicist Dr. Kristopher Lehrer with doubts about his work. But when he confronts his superior, everything goes horribly wrong. Suddenly Kristopher and Michel, a member of the Resistance, are on the run, hunted for treason and a murder they did not commit. If they’re caught, Kristopher’s knowledge could be used to build a terrible weapon that could win the war. For the team sent by the Allies—led by Captain Bryant, Sergeant Lowe, and Dr. Zhou—a simple mission escalates into a deadly game against the Gestapo, with Dr. Lehrer as the ultimate prize. But in enemy territory, surviving and completing their mission will test their strengths and loyalties and prove more complex than they ever imagined.

When physicist Kristopher Lehrer discovers that his work is being used to help the Nazi's confronts his boss. Unexpectedly his boss has a heart attack, hits his head on the corner of his desk and is dead. Michel, a security guard, comes to his rescue and helps him escape. Determined to keep Kristopher's work away from the Nazi's, he steals the only complete plans so that a horrific weapon cannot be built. Overall, the book wasn't bad, the author created some interesting characters and kept the plot line moving. However I found the book a bit hard to read. It was well written, but the plot just came across as unbelievable. I found the relationship between the two men very distracting; after all they are running for their lives. Maybe it was because they were German, but their interactions came across as extremely forced.

I was afraid I wasn't going to enjoy this story because I'm not much of a history buff, but it draws the reader in and keeps making you turn the page to see what is going to happen next. It does end with a nasty cliff hanger making the reader buy the next book to see what happens next. The romance developing between Michael & Kristen is truly touching. The minor romance between the secondary characters is mentioned but isn't shown the development like Michael & Kit.

I really enjoyed the complexities of the characters in this story. Kristopher has been so ensconced in his work that he didn't really stop to see what was going on around him or what his work's end product would be used for. Once the truth starts to seep into his conscience, Kit does what he must. Watching him trying to decide who is who and who he can trust is well written and totally captured my attention.
