This is the story of Bill and Isla on Earth before being posted to Exilon 5, a prequel. I enjoyed this book, Nicely written and easy to read. If you have read the Exilon 5 series then its a story that fills in the gaps prior to that.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review

5.0 out of 5 stars If you read this, you will want to purchase the series. 4 July 2016
By Kat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Excellent backstory to the Exilon 5 series. Also a nice story on its own. I will say, if you read this, you will be compelled to purchase the series. For someone like me, who read the series first, this was a nice opportunity to go back and learn more about the characters, especially Bill and Isla. Great read, alone, first, or after you finish the series. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Where's MORE?!? 26 Jun. 2016
By Gerri - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
**I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review**

I read these prequels AFTER I had read and thoroughly enjoyed the Exilon 5 Trilogy, so my perspective is going to be from a person who hungered for a thoroughly fleshed out and lengthy account of Bill and Isla's history together. These characters are genuine and they are fun. I felt that I would want to hang out with them in real life.

Thus, I felt like this short story was too quick and it was not quite a seamless transition into the Exilon 5 series. My expectation going into the read was also not that it was a short story, and perhaps this negatively colors my opinions a bit.

That said, I think Eliza Green is a fabulous writer and my disappointment is simply that I wanted MORE!! I feel like she could have written an entire novel and I would have read it avidly (I did read this prequel avidly, but it was gone in a flash!). Perhaps (hint hint) in a future rendition Ms. Green will elongate this prequel.

For those who have read this and have NOT yet read Exilon 5, I would highly encourage you to do so. It is exceptional, you will really experience the pathos and sadness of Stephen and the Indigenes, as well as the darkness and corruption of the humans still on Earth. The description of her characters is vivid and I felt like I could touch them, and I knew exactly what they looked like, how their living environments looked and smelled. As someone who works in a scientific field, I found this world believable as well.

I would also say that to the reader who begins with this prequel, will likely have a different experience of it, in that they will feel that they have had an "amuse bouche" to wet their appetite, and they will be ready to consume the main courses with relish and STILL be wanting their dessert.
I wait with excitement any sequels beyond the Exilon 5 series, and am hooked in general as an Eliza Green fan. Can't wait for whatever comes next!

Thanks for giving me the chance to both read and review for you Ms. Green :-)
4.0 out of 5 stars A very well written short prequel. 31 Dec. 2016
By Dingy Deb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I received this prequel free in exchange for an honest review. 1. As with her other writings, I found the story sound and enjoyable. Ms. Green has a way of writhing that takes you straight into the story. Her characters are full and believable enough for the reader to choose favorites. There is nothing wrong with anything in her writing style. 2. The story does explain why and how Isla disappears and a few other things that have been wondered about. 3. It is disjointed in that it seems to have been written to explain these questions and does not seem to be a prequel so much as a beginning that was struck from the original story. 4. Finally, there is not an acceptable ending. It ends so abruptly that I wondered if I had a complete download.

4.0 out of 5 stars Prequel 1 is a Good Read 22 April 2016
By JoanneG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This book was my first exposure to the Exilon 5 series so my perspective might be different from people who have read the entire series.

I enjoyed this book. It portrayed a picture of Earth in the not-too-distant future that was not easy to read. It was interesting to read about the technology of the future (they have food replicators!).

The best part of this book is the relationship between Bill and Isla. It is a real marriage. They fight, they joke around, they make up, they cajole each other, and they love each other. Most marriages are not portrayed so realistically. They are both intelligent. The gender roles are reversed somewhat as Isla is more ambitious than Bill. Good for her.

The book just gives brief hints of what is happening on Exilon 5. We know there is a problem, but we don't know what is going on. I look forward to finding out.
5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent prequel in the Exilon 5 series 31 May 2016
By Caruss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I received this book from Ms. Green in exchange for my honest and true review.

Ok, I required to say that, BUT, I would have read this book anyways!
I first found Becoming Human a few months ago, and it was the first sci-fi exoplanet book. Not typically my type of book, but I loved it!

Echoes of Earth is the first prequel to this series. I'm not typically a fan of big series of books, but this prequel is must. It goes in depth of the back story of Isla and Bill Taggert the situation on Earth that has lead to finding a new Earth.

Whether you have already read any books in the Exilon 5 series, or you want to, I highly recommend Echoes of Earth, perfect to start your adventure or continue it. I'm looking forward to many more amazing works from Eliza Green.
