5.0 out of 5 stars The Last Echo by Kimberly Derting 11 April 2012
By Amber
The Last Echo is just as good - if not better - than the previous installments in this amazing series. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I adored Kimberly Derting's story and characters as I always do.

Like with the first book, there were lots of creepy chapters in which we were inside the killer's head. A lot of other people found this incredibly creepy as well, and this is one of the things I most enjoy about this series. These chapters, along with sending a chill down my spine, gave some background information on the killer that added lots of depth to his character, even though we didn't know who he was until the end.

Violet was as awesome and as badass as ever. Her scenes at the end were beyond amazing, and I was holding my breath for her. She's a great protagonist, and a great example of the badass female characters in YA.

Jay wasn't in this book as much as he is in the others. Violet and Jay's relationship takes a back seat in this novel, and I liked that. As much as I missed him, I loved seeing Violet on her own for the majority of the book.

We did, however, see lots of Rafe, who I adore. We learn a lot about his character in this book, which I loved, because he became more than a two dimensional brooding badboy.

I actually really like the potential of the love triangle in this series, which is surprising! This is one of the love triangles that is done right. Both guys are good for Violet, but in different ways. They both attract different sides of her character and I love it. And if you're worrying about Violet cheating on Jay then don't! Violet isn't like that.

The ending was so, so shocking! What was that!? Like I said above, I was holding my breath throughout the whole thing. It certainly changed the entire dynamic for the rest of the series and it was FLAWLESS.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Jay and Violet, Please. 25 April 2012
- I am a huge fan of The Body Finder series as you can read in my review of the first book The Body Finder and the second book Desires of the Dead. The Last Echo is the third book in the series and thankfully there is going to be a fourth. This is one series I hope never ends. I love the two main characters in this series Violet is an interesting character, she has an ability, I wouldn't call cool, more interesting. She is a lovable character who always tries to do the right thing, even if it means hurting the people she loves and getting herself into trouble. Her boyfriend and childhood best friend Jay is another great and lovable character. He loves Vi with all his heart and will do anything to protect her.

With the introduction of "The Team" we get to meet some new characters and with some different abilities. I feel Violet needed this to make her feel that she wasn't a freak. I do feel she got into more trouble than it was worth working with this group. I wasn't keen on Rafe, I didn't feel their chemistry and was glad nothing really came about it. I would hate for anything to stop Jay and Violet being together. They are after all one of my favourite fiction couples.

I found this book gripping and it has a lots of action and keep me reading and wanting to know what happened next, but there wasn't enough of Jay and Violet's relationship in it for me. Plus I missed Chelsea and her friends from school, they were always an extra source of hilarity in the books.

This book in the series saw Violet use her gift to help solve crimes, then got mixed up in it. I had to keep reading this book to make sure she would be safe. But then ending I didn't see coming. Poor Vi. I cannot wait to read the next instalment.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Last Echo 11 April 2012
This is the third book in the Body Finder series by Kimberly Derting. I'm a massive fan of this series and have been eagerly anticipating the release of 'The Last Echo' for months. I'm pleased to say that it didn't disappoint at all and I think it might actually be my favourite so far.

Violet is now working for Sara Priest's organisation. It was interesting seeing her having to adjust to other people knowing about her abilities outside of her family and Jay. She wants to try and use her ability to prevent people from dying, rather than just finding their bodies after their deaths. She has her toughest job so far to face when she tries to stop a serial killed nicknamed The Collector. The book is interspersed with chapters from his perspective which made for some really creepy reading.

Now that Violet is part of a team, the story focused much more on her relationships with her new friends and colleagues, rather than her romantic relationship with Jay. He is still present in the book but is often on the periphery. There are still plenty of sweet, romantic moments between the two which made my heart flutter plenty and I have no doubt in my mind that they belong together, but Violet is also having to face up to the feelings that she may have developed for Rafe. They do after all share something that Jay can never experience and it's this which seems to draw them together a lot. There are some intriguing revelations about Rafe in the book and sufficient time is given to developing his character further but I couldn't help wishing that there was less of him and more of Jay.

Violet has always been one of my favourite heroines in ya-literature. She's grown and developed so much throughout the series so far.
