    One thought on “Echo McCool, Outlaw Through Time”

    1. This is a story with various twists and turns which all link together at the end and show the girl Echo, a mystical being, being strong and influential. This book combines the historical views of a magical girl woken from a sleep that lasts hundred of years comparing her outdated ways with modern life. Echo overcomes all challenges that she is faced with showing her strength as a strong empowered girl. A real character building book which combines magic, action and cliff hangers. You will want t [...]

    2. I'm old enough to remember the 1970s TV series Catweazle starring Geoffrey Bayldon. As a fan of the time travel genre I read Echo McCool and I am in no doubt that the author was influenced by Catweazle. There also appears to be a secondary influence from the 1970s TV, the Kung Fu series staring David Carradine. But does the Echo McCool series stand up on its own? I think so. The book succeeds in showing the twenty first century through the eyes of Echo, the 12 year old half-dryad girl from medie [...]

    3. Echo McCool is a twelve-year-old half-dryad girl living the life of an outlaw in the vast Wicca Forest during England’s mythical past. One day she is pursued by a forester and shot with a poisoned arrow. Echo hides inside a hollow oak tree where she enters a deep sleep, the dryad magic preserving her soul for so long as the tree itself remains alive.In the present day another twelve-year-old, Jason Fleeting, suffers a near-death experience during which he discovers that the tree concealing Ech [...]

    5. Could dryads (particularly those in medieval forests) do martial arts? Although Echo McCool is by no means just about fighting and action, that's the premise you have to accept to enjoy this book. There'll be those purists who say dryads could do no such thing. More importantly, perhaps, I should point out that dryads never existed anyway. So to what extent should an author depart from folklore and tradition? This book works for me although it may not work for everybody. However, the story is ai [...]

    6. I've seen a couple of comments on here regarding dryads and whether they possessed martial arts skills. In his Hearthside Stories (1873) William Bottrell did record a couple of oral folktales in which dryads demonstrated hand-to-hand combat skills, qualifying as "martial arts" in my humble opinion if not exactly Kung Fu. Hope this helps!

    7. An enjoyable book though I'm in general agreement with Hugh Dennis; Echo McCool is heavily influenced by Catweazle. However, Hugh seems to be unaware that filming is presently underway for a Catweazle movie, so maybe that will lead to an increase in interest in Echo McCool (as well as an increase in the Kindle prices!)

    8. Hugh Dennis and Iain Dale, how the devil are you? I agree with your comments regarding Echo McCool and, when the Catweazle movie comes out, i suspect the order of merit will be:1. Catweazle TV series2. Echo McCool, Outlaw Through Time3. Catweazle movieUnless Bill Nighy gets the title role :)

    9. A good read for any 9-12 year old who likes reading fantasy books. Would fit nicely into a school library and could even be bought as a class reader.

    10. A friend recommended this book to me so I thought ‘less than a quid on Kindle, what the hell?’ The first three chapters were great then the story seemed to slow down for the next two or three. Luckily I’m a persistent reader and once I got to chapter six I loved it and couldn’t put it down! There is some stuff in here that religious people might not like (such as the idea that the universe was created by a goddess!!) but that’s okay by me. I guess in the end this is a ‘Marmite’ typ [...]

    11. A refreshing return to traditional story-telling, that is a story with a beginning, middle and end plus a strong sweep of action. My only gripe is the cover, the figure is great but why the plain background?!

    12. It's about time something comes out that rivals some of the top MG/YA novels on the market. Echo McCool is a magical, epic coming of age journey. I was gripped from beginning to end and fully immersed in the world. The book is very well written and swept me away into an adventure I only wish I could be a part of.Echo sets apart from most characters by having a perfect blend of magical qualities with a very tough, fighter persona. I've never come across any character quite like her in a single fa [...]

    13. Echo McCool just rocks! I read it over the summer and could not put it down! Prior to reading this novel, I was a HUGE Lemony Snicket fan (I own every single book of his in my collection). Now I have a new favorite. I think that this author writes in a very similar way by means of having the ability to create a story in our world that is filled with amazing characters and scenarios. It gives you that tease that "what if this could happen". The story flows so well that I got lost in time on many [...]

    14. I love Echo! She is probably one of the coolest female leads I've ever read about. I think girls and women around the world are going to fall for her. Shes rough and tough and doesnt let anyone mess with her, yet she is a great friend and loyal to those she cares fora real hero! I loved her abilities and that she isn't fully a human at all. The storyline was epic and I enjoyed how she was introduced right in the beginning so that you really get to know her throughout the book. I'm a permanent fa [...]

    15. To me "Echo McCool, Outlaw Through Time" by Roger K. Driscoll, while listed as a YA, has equal appeal to both the YA and adult reader.Echo McCool is a full-blooded dryad. At the beginning of the book, she is shot by a poisoned arrow and, to escape the villian and survive, she jumps into an old, large, hollow oak. Too tall for her to get out, she enters the big sleep--better labeled the long sleep.Enter 12-year-old Jason Fleeting who is dying in a hospital. He meets Echo's mother, a guardian of t [...]

    16. The character of Echo McCool reminds me very much of the Princess Merida character in the Disney Pixar film BRAVE. Both are feisty and strong and red-haired and grew up in a British folklore world. Echo McCool was first published in January 2011 but Pixar must've been working on Princess Merida for a long time so I'm not sure which came first - but both are totally awesome!

    17. A story that certainly lives up to the title of this site. A good read indeed with a captivating story line. Now my neighbours nine year old has borrowed it and won't put it down. Guess I'll just buy another copy as this is a book I will enjoy reading over.

    18. This book has a slightly complex opening but once you get into the action towards the end of Chapter Three the story rockets along and I'd certainly recommend this one to readers in the 9-12 age group. Hope to hear more from this author.

    19. An excellent read with great staying power until the last page with a strong concept, and I'd certainly have no hesitation in recommending it to the year 6/year 7 age group.

    20. I bought this for my 10 year old but because she loved it and kept going on about it I decided to have a read as well. Echo is half-blood Dryad girl who gets shot by this poison arrow in the dark ages and escapes by hiding in this hollow tree, but she doesnt realize that shell get stuck there and the poison will put her to sleep for something like 800 years. In the present a 12 year old boy called Jason is in this coma and having a near death experience where he meets Echos mother who says shell [...]

    21. I chose this book because of the high ratings on . It didn't disappoint :) It's a very fun story with some very interesting characters.

    22. I’m something of a Youtube addict and lately I’ve been checking out the many trailers for the up and coming Disney/Pixar movie “Brave.” The internet is already awash with iconic pictures of the courageous red-headed Princess Merida, the lead character in “Brave.” However I can see parallels between her and Echo McCool, another valiant red-haired girl character. This said, Echo is a time traveller and has other magical gifts such as her ability to see snatches of the past. I’m sure [...]

    23. What an amazing book!An easy 5*!!! Adult or child, you'd love Echo McCool!!! The main characters are Echo and Jason, who I fell in love with, once I picked this book up I did not want to put it down!!! The writing is a very high standard, I loved the descriptions, I would love to have been there with them both (saving the day). The author is a very talented writer, and I can wait for the next instalments or any books he writes in the future. :) thank you for such a good read :)

    24. Wow what a read! i couldn’t put it down!!! Love the characters, loved the plot, the way it was written, was interesting from start to end :) in my opinion the author is a very talented writer! Hope he has more instalments of Echo in the near future

    25. Many authors have attempted to do what Mr Driscoll does with Echo McCool, but few have succeeded. It's a very traditional story but at the same time new. It feels like a timeless classic has been updated to appeal to kids today. I was watching Sherlock on BBC One the other day and it put me in mind of how the makers of that show have updated an old idea to make it appeal to viewers today. Mr Driscoll has done the same here with classic children's fiction.The stars, Jason and Echo, complement eac [...]

    26. Son to a missing father, son to a murdered mother, brother to a kidnapped sister, Jason Fleeting will have his vengeance in this lifet the next.When twelve year old Jason falls out of a tree and into a coma in the grounds of the children's home where he lives, he finds himself on a beach at the edge of time; somewhere between the living and the afterlife.Here, he meets a beautiful dryad, Fenella, who recites a tale of ancient conflicts, war, bravery and death. She also reveals that Jason and his [...]

    27. Not really good but not really bad either. Filled in a long delay at the airport. I may read the next just to see how the main character develops. Felt nothing for the brother and sister (Jason and Lauren? I have forgotten already! )

    28. In short: a magical girl from the distant past, trapped in a tree throughout centuries, is awakened by a boy to help avenge the murder of his mother and rescue his sister.The story starts out with Echo's story in the past. Her entire family, rebels against powerful nobility (like Robin Hood and his band of thieves), have been killed, except for one sister. Echo is half-dryad; her mother is one of the spirits of the trees. Poisoned by a pursuer and near death, she hides inside a hollow tree. The [...]

    29. Aimed younger adult readers, this book is like a cross between classic children's literature and the adventures that generally get published or turned into films today. Roger Driscoll's story mixes Famous Five storytelling and fast-paced, magic-wielding, karate-kicking that you can imagine in your head in far better quality than 1080p HD. There's still an adventure around every corner, but if they involve Echo they’re far more likely to be of interest to modern kids than anything Blyton churne [...]
