Echo: A Dystopian Science Fiction Novel

My coworkers lead me down to the basement.  They throw open the doors and I’m greeted by the grime-smeared faces of former employees:  chained together at the ankles, lifting giants picks and smashing big rocks into smaller rocks.  I’m flabbergasted.  “What the HELL is going on here?”  Suddenly, a tufted tranq dart is sticking out from my neck, and the world fades into blackness.  When I wake up, I’m chained to a gang of former employees, and one of my coworkers—now shirtless with a spiked leather collar—is cracking a whip over our heads.  Another one steadily beats a giant drum made out of human skin.  Whip-guy screams at me, “WORK, DAMN YOU!” and throws me a pick.  I reply, “But I’m not DOING anything; I’m just perpetuating—” He cracks his whip over my face and yells, “HEIL PERPETUATION!”  Suddenly my eReader tumbles from my pocket, open to Echo.  Magic flash.  I see that one of the guards is Lando in disguise (just like in Jedi, motha duckas!).  He nods at me, I nod back, the John Williams fanfare slowly starts…and then kicks into full gear.  He throws me a light saber and I do a double back-tuck, catching it in mid-air.  I land with it activated, my face tinged with amaze-balls green.  Wind sweeps my hair back and I’m mowing through the guards with wild swings.  Off to the side, one of the freed prisoners blasts a coworker that looks suspiciously like Salacious Crumb.  I’m grinning in delight; the only thing that would make this better is if I was decked out in badass black—like Luke when he was crushing Jabba’s minions.

Every corporate manager has a plan to tie you to a Mad Max-style chain gang.  Make sure you have a lightsaber handy.  Get Echo Vol. 1 on Kindle here:  Vol. 1 on Kindle.  Vol. 2 on Kindle here:  Vol.2 on Kindle.
