Echo: A Dystopian Science Fiction Novel

Cats have infested the world!  They with their judging looks and weird bursts of hissy anger and their dead-eyed stare (the one where you KNOW they’re thinking about how they’d jack you up if they were the big one and you were the small one).  As I dash madly through the underbrush, I glance upwards and see a storm of feline shadows. Each outstretched paw and curling tail is backlit by the fading sky.  They’re herding me…but where?  The answer becomes apparent as the trees disappear and a sixty foot canyon looms before me.  I about-face, slowly walking my way back, and the cats condense into a rippling sea of feline flesh, eagerly making their way towards me, their heads halfway down as they sink into stalking-mode.  I take my final step back.  The earth suddenly gives way beneath my heel, and I’m falling headlong into a craggy abyss.  With no options left, I open my eReader to Echo.  Magic flash.  A jetpacked kitty screams in from my 3 o’ clock and snatches me up with cybernetically enhanced paws.  “What?” I gasp.  “You’re not with the rest?”  Stars reflect off my rescuer’s implacable flight visor as it replies, “About one in ten of us possess the soul of dogs; we’re the good ones.”  Before I can say anything I look back at the horde of evil cats and I see about fifty saddled labradors running at them, each mounted by one of the “good cats.”  The combined cat-dog force routs my would-be killers, sending them yowling and scrambling into the night.

Not all cats are evil.  There are certain ones that were dogs in their past lives.  Get Echo Vol. 1 on Kindle here:  Vol. 1 on Kindle.  Vol. 2 on Kindle here:  Vol.2 on Kindle
