Exclusive: Read An Excerpt From Danie Ware's Sci-fi Head Trip 'Ecko Rising'


What happens when a high-tech antihero gets tossed into a low-tech world? That's the premise of author Danie Ware's "Ecko Rising," out this week from Titan Books.

And after the jump, we've got an exclusive preview!

From the official synopsis:

Ecko Rising is a unique genre-bending fantasy–sci-fi epic following a savage, gleefully cynical anti-hero. After awakening in a dimension-jumping inn to find himself immersed in his own sardonic fantasy world, Ecko strives to conquer his deepest fears and save the world from extinction.

Ecko is an unlikely saviour: a savage, gleefully cynical rebel/assassin, he operates out of hi-tech London, making his own rules in a repressed and subdued society. When the biggest job of his life goes horribly wrong, Ecko awakes in a world he doesn't recognize: a world without tech, weapons, cams, cables—anything that makes sense to him. Can this be his own creation, a virtual Rorschach designed just for him, or is it something much more? Ecko finds himself immersed in a world just as troubled as his own, striving to conquer his deepest fears and save it from extinction. If Ecko can win through, then he might just learn to care—or break the program and get home.

"Ecko Rising" is available now in bookstores and digitally from Titan Books.
