“Christina Bauer has a gift with sucking you into a story and not letting go until the final sentence is over. This was one of those stories.” – The Book Herald
Our heroine Meimi Archer has been assigned to attend ECHO Academy. There, the evil Headmaster believes that Meimi will help the government conquer other dimensions.
But Meimi and her friends have some very different ideas. They’re starting a revolution.
That is, if the Headmaster doesn’t find out and murder them first.
“If you like books set in a dystopian futuristic society then you are going to LOVE Alien Minds.” – The Avid Reader

My Review
ECHO Academy is the fourth (and last) book in the Dimension Drift series (if you count the prequels as books one and two). This one picks up right where Dimension Drift leaves off, with a little bit of extra detail added at the beginning to flesh out a few of the events from the previous book.
I was really excited about the finale, and I can say I wasn't disappointed. Meimi is stuck at ECHO Academy with a nasty Headmaster who wants her to help invade Umbra. Thorne is stuck on Umbra, trying to find his way back to Meimi. But when the secrets of the past come to light in the present, the future turns into an uncertain race against time. Will the pair reunite, or will everything come crashing down around them?
I enjoyed the conclusion of the series. I liked that there were some intriguing new details that cropped up to make things even more dire for the characters. There was definitely a lot going on for both Thorne and Meimi. Things got a little crazy there at one point. But the ending made it all worthwhile. 
I think the only downside was it did feel a little bit rushed, and I would have liked a smidge more action/adventure/crazy stuff going on. That's just me, though.
Fans of the series, or just fans of dystopian fantasy, will enjoy the finale that is ECHO Academy. 
4 stars!

Author Bio:
Christina Bauer thinks that fantasy books are like bacon: they just make life better. All of which is why she writes romance novels that feature demons, dragons, wizards, witches, elves, elementals, and a bunch of random stuff that she brainstorms while riding the Boston T. Oh, and she includes lots of humor and kick-ass chicks, too.
Christina graduated from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School with BA’s in English along with Television, Radio, and Film Production. She lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby.
