Echo: A Dystopian Science Fiction Novel

Ugggh…where am I?  I remember walking in the park and then a bright flash…I look around with dazed eyes, blinking, and see that everything around me is enormous:  Giant blades of grass, giant kids, giant…wait; they’re not giant—I’M small!  I’ve shrunk to roughly one foot in height.  No one’s noticed yet, as I was walking near the more secluded, upper part of the park, heavy with woods and shrubs.  In the long and ominous shadows of the setting sun, I see a gang of sinister silhouettes round the trunk of a tree and filter slowly towards me.  A dozen chihuahuas come into view, their glassy idiot eyes no longer blank and vacant, but now filled with malicious amusement.  I blurt, “What the…How…”  Before I can continue stumbling out words, the lead chihuahua hisses, “Sorcery.  Our time has come, two-legs.  The revolution has started.”  They peel off their faces, and reveal that they were cats all along (come on, how could you NOT know?).  And taking a page from Palpatine’s book, they all drape black cloaks over their backs and faces.  In a shaking voice I say, “My dog is around here somewhere; he’ll—”  the chihuahua cat spits, “Your faith in your friends is your weakness.”  My voice steadies as I say, “Your overconfidence is yours.”  I open my eReader to Echo.  Magic flash.  My little (now giant) buddy Bitefighter runs through the cats, bowling a handful of them over.  He’s followed by a legion of big dogs—Great Danes, Labs, Shepherds—that run through the cats, eliciting pissed-off yowls and screeches.  I see a one of the dogs corner a couple of the feline bastards and let loose with steaming urine, right on their hoity-toity faces.

Eventually, cats WILL turn on us.  Make sure you have a loyal canine buddy to fend off their treachery.  Get Echo Vol. 1 on Kindle here:  Vol. 1 on Kindle.  Vol. 2 on Kindle here:  Vol.2 on Kindle
