1) I didn't think I was going to like this series because I am not a fan of historical fiction, but it turned out as a page turning marvel.
2) Last year I had the pleasure of reading and judging Winter Duet, Book 2 of the Echos Rising for the Rainbow Awards, and I was left fascinated by the end. Now, what an honor to have the opportunity of reading and judging Book 3, Comes a Horseman. This story was so compelling. It kept me glued to the screen from the beginning with so much excitement going on within its pages. I was at the edge of my seat almost constantly. This is a well written, well articulated, and well constructed story. Now I'm looking forward to reading Book 1, which I wish I had read first instead of last. Ms. Barwell is a magical writer, one to keep an eye on and one to read every book she publishes. Well done, Ms. Barwell!

Echoes Rising: Book Three
Sometimes the most desperate struggles take place far from the battlefield, and what happens in secret can change the course of history.
Victory is close at hand, but freedom remains frustratingly just beyond the grasp of German physicist Dr. Kristopher Lehrer, Resistance fighter Michel, and the remaining members of the team sent by the Allies--Captain Matt Bryant, Sergeant Ken Lowe, and Dr. Zhou Liang--as they fight to keep the atomic plans from the Nazis. The team reaches France and connects with members of Michel's French Resistance cell in Normandy. Allied troops are poised to liberate France, and rescue is supposedly at hand. However, Kristopher is no longer sure the information he carries in his memory is safe with either side.
When StandartenfUhrer Holm and his men finally catch up with their prey, the team is left with few options. With a traitor in their midst, who can they trust? Kristopher realizes he must become something he is not in order to save the man he loves. Death is biding his time, and sacrifices must be made for any of them to have the futures they want.
