Publisher's Summary

1588. When Rafael de Silva’s ship is smashed on the rocks off the coast of Ireland, he must find a way to get by without access to any resources or help from the locals, since being apprehended will result in certain death for a soldier of the ill-fated Spanish Armada. Terrified and half starved, Rafael gets help from an unexpected source, but safety is just an illusion, and love is a liability when Rafael’s very survival depends on keeping the secret of his birth from being discovered by those closest to him.

2015. Called upon to unearth the remains of a brutal crucifixion, Quinn must delve into the aftermath of the Spanish Armada’s fateful defeat, but as she tries to decipher the secret the victim took to his grave, she discovers that there are secrets much closer to home, and that the twin sister she couldn’t wait to be reunited with is not quite what she expected.

Intriguing!

Another intriguing book in this amazing series. The historical content was interesting and the story emotional. We also learn more about Quinn’s family and her twin sister. I like how the characters in this series are well developed and realistic, not perfect but understandable. Once again I am anxious to hear what will happen next with Gabe and Quinn. Wendy Wolfson always does such a wonderful job with the narration bringing the story to life. I received a free copy of this audiobook and have voluntarily provided an unbiased review.

Not as much

I found the story of the Spanish Armada survivors to be almost boring compared to the history lines of the other books. Quinn’s family has so much melodrama that the contemporary story is beginning to take on a soap opera quality. I admit that my curiosity about her sister had a lot to do with me purchasing this book but that line started to get tedious and consumed so much of the overall book. I hope Quinn and Gabe can settle down and raise a nice family as another history mystery unfolds! Yes, I’m ready for the next one.

Disappointed

I just finished The Betrayed and am so disappointed. I have loved all the other Echoes from the Past series by Irina Shapiro, but this one left me baffled. It was almost as if the author was under a time crunch halfway through the manuscript and rushed through details. I really wanted to like it, but even the voices of some of the characters didn't fit with what they were saying - expressing little emotion.

Dying to know more!

I love the Echoes series. The romance/fantasy/time travel genre is well represented by Irinia Shapiro. The vivid imagery and historical accuracy kept me engaged during the narration. I am always impressed with the level of research that must have been conducted while authoring this book. The characters and their relationships are well developed. I am anxiously awaiting the next installment in the series. Jo's true nature has me wary of her relationship with Quinn.

Raphael and Jo

In book 7 of this awsome series Quinn is called to a cruxifiction scene in Ireland. It is horrible and it shakes her hard. She comes away with a small amulet, hiding behind the bodies pelvis. Once she makes contact she learns it belongs to the young Raphael de Silva. A spanish soldier in the Spanish Inquisition and washed ashore on the coast of Ireland after the English have done a number on the Spanish fleet. He and his captain, who is badly wounded, manage to get away from the beach where an angry mob is killing everybody still alive. They manage to find shelter and after a long journey they arrive at a castle where the Lord gives them and another 20 other Spanish soldiers shelter and food as a rebel to Queen Elizabeth.. But Raphael carries a deep secret which would end with his dead if anybody would find out.And when they all find themselves sieged by the English things quickly go out of control. Meanwhile Quinn is doing everything in her power to keep connected to her new found twinsister Jo. But Jo is not what she hoped she would be. Both Gabe and Reese see that although Jo looks a lot like their father, she has their mother's character. It takes a missing baby and another disappearing from Jo that Quinn realises she can be happy with the family she has. Another amazing book in this series and again Wendy Wolfson does an excellent job with many different voices. Loved it.

Great listen

Quinns story goes from strength to strength and the echoes from the past take us back to a time that reverberates through today. Yet another fantastic continuation. I will have to wait a while for the next to be written now!
