Dew Pellucidabout this book: In a see-through, sparkling realm live our reflections—like Echoes of our Sounds. And the Echoes bind themselves to us in a terrible way: Every Echo is put to death once his Sound dies.
For one Sound, a twelve-year-old boy, life has always been haunted by Echoes, only he never knew it. But now, ghostly creatures are stalking Will's home. Soon he will discover the awful reason why. And then he will have to choose between running away or plunging down an icy hole into the greatest adventure of his life.
This high concept fantasy for middle grade and young adult fans has been compared to Harry Potter by Kirkus Reviews and many readers, while everyone agrees that the Echo realm is entirely unique and the story filled with moral goodness and endless twists and turns that keep you wondering what next.
