Jordan Mitchfield is heir to a media empire worth billions. He also sees and hears things that aren’t there. Then someone close puts him in an insane asylum against his will.
When it looks like there is no way out but to take his own life, he is stopped. Is it a vision? Is what he’s seeing actually real? Is it even part of this dimension? Whatever it is, it opens his cell door and throws him into a dangerous time-travel adventure through his memories.
As he goes deeper into the Pool of Echoes, he is forced to confront everything he has ever known, reconstruct his own mental health, and play a role in something much larger than himself. (Summary and book cover courtesy of goodreads.com)
Please note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange of an honest review courtesy of the author.
This was a book that had me initially confused, then intrigued and then pleased with the way it all came together. “The Pool of Echoes” is a shorter book that I read in just one sitting. It makes you question your perspective and take a second look at some of the things in your past. Jordan is troubled and questioning himself, but forcing the blame in all the wrong places. Though easy to see where Jordan makes mistakes, it’s harder to step back half a step and wonder where you’re doing the same.
I appreciated that David did a great job making the case for spirituality without trying to force anything down your throat. His perspective on the story gives it a grounding morals even as it deals with characters who don’t follow the same rules. I have to admit, I’ve been wondering what I would see in the “pool”!
Warning: Contains some violence
