"The story shares a number of similarities with the Harry Potter series... but the unique, complex Echo wrold is enough to set this story apart... Fantasy novel that readers hungry for magic and adventure will gladly devour."
-Kirkus Reviews

"'The Sound & the Echoes' is a riveting pick for middle grade and young adults fans of high adventure, recommended."
-The Midwest Book Review

"A really great book with beautiful world building and characters you come to love. From a wonderfully imaginative mind comes this great story! I'm blessed to be able to share this book with my twins!"
- Lisa on Amazon

"I could not peel myself away from it. The characters are amazing and are very detailed... This is one of those books that can bring the imagination alive.
-April on Amazon

"Many compare this book to Harry Potter, and I can see where they can be similar, but Sounds and the Echoes has its own identity. It has a different mission; a different plot. It is a highly creative story in a world that would be a child's fantasy if they had an overactive imagination."
-Delaine on Goodreads.

"I was completely into the story from the time I picked it up... I would suggest this well-written book to anyone looking for a great story."
-Hannah on Goodreads.

-M. Fan on ZigZag Timelines book blog.

"Coming from someone who has read her fair share of fantasy books, I have to admit that most of the time I was in awe (honestly!) as to how Pellucid came up with such mind-boggling ideas."
-Micheline, Goodreads Librarian.

"Dew Pellucid offers a reader much, awakening an indefinable, irreverent child-like depiction of an imaginative, strange, beautiful world."
-Sean Randall, Goodreads Librarian.

"I love when an author puts effort into depicting an interesting and consistent world. Thus, it is easier to remain immersed in the world, and to draw parallels between the fiction and our own world. This was certainly the case with land of the Echoes."
-L on Amazon.

"This was my first time reading a story that was magical. I really liked it... Will reminded me of someone real. Someone who doesn’t give up on family."
-4th Grader on Kindle Kids Corner.

"The plot is defiantly different and it is never too slow. Dew Pellucid does an extraordinary job with the descriptions...it makes it easier to connect with the story and get sucked in"
-Vero on Goodreads.

“This is a story rich in detail and depth. You can see the images and feel the emotions that the characters are feeling... If you like Harry Potter or other YA type books like that you will really enjoy this book.”
-Trina Wing on Goodreads.

"This book is so refreshing. The characters are unique as is the story line. There are no dragons or the normal "mystical" creatures. I couldn't put it down!"

-Wendy on Goodreads

"For several pivotal secondary characters, you were never quite sure if they were 'good guys' or 'bad guys' until their motives finally became clear. It lent the story an air of mystery that kept the story moving along."
-Jenn Forte on Amazon

“Fantastic book that I highly recommend for anyone who loves the Potter series.”
-L. Franco on Amazon.

"This book was definitely worth buying and reading. I highly recommend it for people searching for a good fantasy story."
- Sarah on Goodreads.

"It’s a solid fantasy adventure for kids who have already read the whole Harry Potter series—but they need to be fine with that kind of length, meandering plot, large cast of characters to keep straight, etc."
-Reads4Tweens Book Blog

“I dare you to read this and not enjoy it.”
-Claire Carey on Goodreads.

"Pellucid shows an understanding of people and what we're willing to do for those we love and feel close to - even at the cusp of 12 and 13."
-Jaime on Amazon

"The world was described and it sounded so beautiful. The characters are unique, the magic, and more... this book is awesome for people who are fans of Harry Potter.
-Randi on Goodreads

"There are some really cool ideas in this book... and the library sounded amazing! The characters were well written, the plot was suitably twisted and everything was well described."
-Sarah on Amazon

"My kids said it was a great read and it brought out the different realms as the Potter books without the magic. Trying to get a book report out of two teenagers are challenging enough but I knew they liked it when they read it a second time, each."

-Anastacia Hawkins for Readers Favorite.

would be lovely. BTW, I’m over Fifty years of age, and enjoyed it, so adults do not be deterred by the suggested age reference."
-Tanya on Kindle Kids Corner ( )

Book description
The Sound and the Echoes is a high-concept, fantasy adventure for middle grade and young adult readers, with 27 illustrations.

Imagine that everyone around you has a mirror image living somewhere else. Your world is like a sound, which produced that other world of echoes. And in this land men are governed by a terrible law—no Echo is allowed to live after his Sound dies.

One Sound especially must die. The Prince’s Sound. The Fate Sealers and Fortune Tellers will make sure of that! Because after this Sound dies, the Echo Prince will have to die too.

Now, twelve-year-old Will Cleary is about to discover that he is the Sound the Echoes are hunting. And so begins his perilous adventure into a see-through, sparkling world, filled with spying crystal balls, an eerie fortress of castaway children, a hunt for clues in an ancient book of riddles, and a last-chance escape through a frozen gem-studded lake into a secret land that holds the key to placing the Prince on the throne and returning freedom to the Echoes.
Haiku summary
