Publisher's Summary

Kiernan Dunne abandoned his family ties to help Kate fight the Cyrists, and he's never regretted that for one moment. But he doesn't understand why Kate can't remember that night in 1893 Chicago, when she turned back to face the killer chasing them through the smoky corridors of the World's Fair Hotel. Kate placed the CHRONOS key around his neck and made his eight-year-old self promise to wear it always, and that's a promise Kiernan has never broken.

When Kate suddenly vanishes after a Cyrist-engineered time shift, that hidden medallion is Kiernan's only hope for finding her. He returns to the Cyrist fold to look for clues, but his search will lead him back to the question that has haunted him for years - what really happened after he left Kate at the World's Fair Hotel?

This digital novella gives Timebound lovers a glimpse at Kate in another timeline and helps set the stage for Time's Edge, the second book in The CHRONOS Files Series, coming from Skyscape in October.

    Story
    "Finally a novella for my favorite character"
    Would you listen to another book narrated by Nick Podehl?

    I didn't think he did a very good job with the accent. Sometimes he had one, and sometimes he didn't, which was very confusing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This was a pretty short book, so I think I finished it in two. I was disappointed by the narration, and considered stopping part way through the book, but decided to power through.


    Any additional comments?

    While I didn't love this book, I was very happy to get a little more information about my favorite character from the series. Kiernan Dunne is a great character.

    Story
    "Cash Grab"
    What disappointed you about Time's Echo?

    Ridiculously short, costs more than the second book in the series! Barely adds anything to overall story. Not for children.


    What was most disappointing about Rysa Walker’s story?

    This whole book could condensed into 1 chapter of the main story. This is a complete cash grab.


    What three words best describe Nick Podehl’s voice?

    Decent OK average


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Time's Echo?

    All of them, and incorporated the last couple chapters into the main books.


    Any additional comments?

    This book and second in the series contain (unnecessary) sexual themes. I will not be allowing my kids to listen.

    Story
    "A nice side trip from the first book"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I you have read/listened to Timebound and want to get some of the story from other views it is a great book.

    The narration was good until it got to the female voices for some reason the voice used pulled me out of the book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    hearing some other viewpoints of the story


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Nick Podehl?

    someone with a better range for female voices


    Was Time's Echo worth the listening time?

    yes

    "Nice companion to the series"

    Admittedly I loved Kiernan from the first book, Timebound, so I was very excited to get his point of view. I loved getting inside his head and understanding how he fit into Kate’s timeline(s). Because this is time travel it can become confusing at times, but the author does a good job of explaining it along the way. Although this novella did not advance the story that began in the first book, it was a great companion piece for fans of Kiernan. I would have given this 5 stars but the narration was not the best. Otherwise, I enjoyed the listen.

    "Skip the Novella and Read Book #2"

    You will learn nothing new in this book that you will not learn by just reading book 2. I was hoping to get a better understanding of Kate and Kiernan's bond, but there was nothing, it was such a waste. The plot action also leads nowhere new. Skip the novella and just read book 2.

    "Decent story, but not well-narrated"
    Did Nick Podehl do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Character differentiation was good, but the voices he used for those characters took me completely out of the story. Jess sounded too much like Jimmy Stewart and Saul sounded exactly like Agent Smith from The Matrix.

    Also, Kiernan--the main character from whose perspective the entire story is told--is Irish. Nick's Irish accent was very slight and extremely inconsistent.

    I like Nick's voice and his story-telling skills are decent, but I would have liked to see more consistency and creativity.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, this was a nice filler story for the Chronos Files series. It was interesting seeing things from Kiernan's point of view and get new perspective on Kate and an "insider's" view of the Cyrists.

    "Skip this one"

    I wish that Kate Rudd had narrated this book and maybe I would have enjoyed it. Her voice for Kiernan was deep and husky. The first narrator was so off that I could not even enjoy the book.

    "I can't get enough of this series"

    I love this series. Kate Rudd does a much better job with the narration though. this performer makes all the female characters sound such up and ride. Kate also does a better Irish accent. that said, I still enjoyed this book

    "Surprised at different narrator"

    I did enjoy this novella, but was very disappointed that the narrator was different than the first audiobook. I was not happy with the narration and different voices. The storyline was helpful but as I said I do not like it when is separate narrators for different books in a series.

    "Enjoyable sideline to the series"

    Interesting sideline told from Kiernan Dunn perspective. Narrator was okay but I didn't like his interpretation of Simons voice and of all female characters which he made sound trashy.
    otherwise a good story.
