Top 10 Favorite Things with Angela

Favorite author (dead or alive) I have so many! But I LOVE Karen Marie Moning.

Favorite Chocolates Anything European. I love Cadbury!

Favorite books that inspired you to write The Fairy Rebel, by Lynne Reid Banks; and The Hobbit, by J.R.R Tolkien

Favorite songs to listen to while writing I listen to movie soundtracks. Lately, I’ve been listening to the soundtrack from Man of Steel…which means I get less writing done because I end up staring at photos of Henry Cavill. J

Favorite destination to live? I love the mountains in Utah, but I’d also love to live in New Orleans…during the winter, when the humidity doesn’t make it feel like it’s 120 degrees.

Musicians/bands/groups U2, Pearl Jam, NIN, AWOLNATION, Adele, P!nk, Florence + the Machine, The Beatles, Neil Diamond.

Favorite movies of all time Out of Africa, Love Actually, The Princess Bride.

Favorite TV program/series? Sons of Anarchy, Dexter, Arrested Development

Favorite movie moments The kiss between Aragorn and Arwen in Return of the King. Romance novels are written for kisses like that!

Favorite Super Villain Bane from The Dark Knight Rises. I was completely captivated by how evil he was. Also, the villain in Karen Marie Moning’s Fever series is pretty incredible (I won’t say who it is because I don’t want to spoil it if you haven’t read the series).

Favorite gadgets My cell phone. It’s distracting. My dog takes it from me when I’m not paying enough attention to him.

Favorite dream destinations Africa, Australia, New Zealand.



She thought she stopped the evil.

She thought she was safe.

Everything she thought was wrong.

Almost four months have passed since Evie Starling learned she was a Tracker and helped defeat a Daevos Clan that was taking others like her—but that wasn’t the end of the abductions. As an unknown evil emerges, Evie vows to help solve the mystery of the missing Trackers, regardless of the risk.

With new powers she doesn’t understand and can’t control, she turns to Alex and Emil, her two soul mates, for help. But her feelings for them both are tearing her apart. She knows she has to decide between them; however, her memories are only making that choice more difficult.

As the world around her is thrown into chaos, Evie is confronted with what could be a destiny-altering truth. Will she accept her history, her memories, and her role in this life, or choose to ignore the echoes of her past?


This kind of book comes in rare form. Angela Corbett’s Eternal Echoes and the series in general is one of those stories that hit a special spot in a reader’s heart. The design of this remarkable story was set to provide deep connections with the reader and its characters. There were so many things we learned about Evie in the first book. However, it quickly becomes evident that there is so much more depth to her. She remains to carry many questions about her past and the kind of person she really is. The discovery of the special powers she has adds more urges to seek answers to the questions that have been perturbing her. Let’s not forget the unyielding decision she has to make about Emil and Alex. It all comes down to choosing which one she will spend eternity with or in other words, whom she will lose forever. No matter what the end result is, it is definite that her life will be forever changed.

The one thing I loved about Eternal Starling is how Angela is able to grab your attention from the very start. I’m not talking about a “tap on the shoulder and check this out” kind of thing, but the grip she delivered is strong and vigorous. It was hypnotizing! I can truly say the same thing with the sequel. I am much invested and drawn to the characters, if not more this time around. Her storytelling is always progressing and gives readers a whole new take into Evie’s world.

I have always found stories that focus on a decision that will ultimately change the course of time to be highly interesting. It keeps the brain busy and the pot stirring. There are many ways that this story can end and it’s this anticipation that makes it addicting. I have read many books with a similar fashion but the delivery is just not there. Through Angela’s writing etiquette, readers will appreciate how such a knotty storyline is so easy to follow. She has perfected the art balancing the elements of love, humor, and action in the form of written words. Eternal Echoes certainly has all the attributes to satisfy a reader’s hunger for enjoyment and entertainment. There are many books that can make you laugh, tear up, and get your adrenaline going, but the execution in Eternal Echoes is just a perfect storm for that.
