Not your usual fantasy/sci-fi genre mash-up. Not your usual playfully psychotic cyber-and-drug-enhanced antihero. Ecko Rising messes with your head in unexpected and exciting ways.” Mike Carey, author of the Felix Castor series“I motored through this book. It’s a page turner and I’ll be getting hold of the next one.” Neal Asher, author of the Agent Cormac series“Tight, fast-paced, sophisticated SF – the best debut novel I’ve read in years.” Andy Remic, author of Spiral“Danie Wares first novel is not so much assured as explosive.

Wares writing style is a joy to read... brilliant filth with heart... A genuinely impressive exercise in world-building... [A] very memorable piece of work, long may Ecko rise.” Starburst Magazine“Ecko Rising is grimy and crazy, and so action-centric, it should have an explosion on every page. Its crammed with sci-fi cuss words, real cuss words, monsters, and violence. In other words: Buy me.” Revolution SF“Ware has successfully blended elements of science fiction and epic fantasy to create a unique story in a landscape that has just enough of a modern, dark edge to elevate it from a traditional fantasy journey to something new and compelling. Ware writes with an eloquence that is not often encountered in genre fiction… with a language almost of his own, and a witty inner monologue to match, Ecko is a captivating hero… A successfully fresh ‘someth
