Ecko Rises In September
Headline - Press release
Posted by Richard Boom on Aug 15, 2012
Ecko Rising follows a savage, gleefully cynical anti-hero immersed in his own fantasy world. Ecko joins a misfit cast of characters and strives to conquer his deepest fears and save the world. Danie Ware says, “Ecko Rising is sardonic fantasy, a sharp new slant on the genre, scattered with a healthy dusting of sex, violence and sarcasm. I’ve read fantasy, on and off, since I was a teen – and you can’t put a new twist on something unless you fell in love with it to start with! I wanted to push back its boundaries, make it do something different, something smarter and darker – but also something that we’d understand and recognise.”
September 2012 • £7.99 • Paperback /9780857687623 • E-book /9781781162835
Ecko Rising, and its sequel scheduled for publication next year, will appeal to those who love fantasy, classic or modern, those intrigued by new concepts, and those with a liking for twisted anti-heroes.
“One of the most intriguing and original blends of fantasy and science fiction
I’ve read in a long time” –
Adrian Tchaikovsky (Empire in Black and Gold)
"Not your usual uber-capitalist dystopia. Not your usual fantasy/sci-fi genre mash-up. Not your usual playfully psychotic cyber-and-drug-enhanced antihero. Ecko Rising messes with your head in unexpected and exciting ways." –
Mike Carey (X-Men, Lucifer)
"Ecko Rising explodes onto the page with the manic energy of Richard Morgan’s cyberpunk novels before taking a surprise turn into Thomas Covenant territory. It is strange, surprising, haunting and exceedingly well-written. Not to be missed." –
Lavie Tidhar, (Osama, The Bookman series)
"Danie Ware's first novel is not so much assured as explosive. This is science fiction with the safety catch off. I hope she never runs out of ammunition." – Adam Nevill (Apartment 16)
A unique genre-bending fantasy–sci-fi epic, Ecko Rising is the astonishing debut from first time author, Danie Ware [Ecko Rising, Titan Books, September 2012, original paperback, £7.99].

Danie Ware says, “Working at FP has allowed me to work with some of best-known and most-respected SF/F authors working today – and that’s a heck of a thing to try and live up to. This world, and some of its central concepts and characters, began in my fiancé’s front room, in Ashford in Kent, in 1989 – and it’s grown and evolved over years of games, stories, and world-sharing. I haven’t consciously built it – it’s almost built itself.”
