Book Review: Echoes of Us (The Hybrid Chronicles #3) by Kat Zhang

To change the world, I may lose everything.All Eva ever wanted was the chance to be herself. But in the Americas, to be hybrid—to share your body with a second soul—is not tolerated past childhood. Now Eva and Addie, her sister soul, are constantly on the move, hiding from the officials who seek to capture them. But the tide is changing. A revolution is brewing, and people are starting to question the hybrids' mistreatment.

Then Marion, an ambitious reporter, offers Eva and Addie a daring proposal: If they go undercover and film the wretched conditions of a hybrid institution, she will not only rescue them, she'll find a way to free Jackson, the boy Addie loves. It's risky, and Eva will have to leave Ryan and her friends behind, but if she succeeds, it could also tip the scales forever and lead to hybrid freedom.

As Eva and Addie walk into danger, they cling to each other and the hope of a better future. But the price they might pay is higher than they ever could have imagined.

I have loved each book in the Hybrid Chronicles series, and Echoes of Us was no different from its predecessors.  The premise of this series is so captivating, and really makes this series stand out in the genre.  I fell in love with Zhang's characters, and found myself sad that the series was over.

Eva and Addie aren't afraid of anything---and that made them so easy to admire.  I love their determination and their ability to effect change in the world around them.  They were inspiring characters to read about.

I did have a couple of complaints about Echoes of Us.  There were a lot of captures and escapes in this book.  Just one too many for my tastes.  And, the conflict resolution was rushed, in my opinion.  I wanted more "after" to the happily ever after.

Overall, I really did love this series, and would definitely recommend it.  Kat Zhang is an author to watch---I love her writing and I'm looking forward to her next release!
