ECHO McCOOL 

 

By Roger K Driscoll

 

ISBN 978-1-908105-26-4

 

 

About the book:
Echo McCool is a magical, medieval girl with attitude. Don’t get on the wrong end of her jump kicks, flick-flaks and open-palm strikes. In her own time, Echo escapes death from a poisoned arrow and hides inside a hollow oak tree. She lies dormant for hundreds of years but in the present day she is awakened by Jason Fleeting, a twelve-year-old runaway from a children’s home. Together they set out to solve the murder of Jason’s mother and to rescue his kidnapped sister Lauren.

About the author

 

After being made redundant by a large law firm, Roger Driscoll dusted down some half-finished manuscripts stored under his spare bed. He got to work, and ECHO McCOOL, OUTLAW THROUGH TIME was the result. Roger lives in East Yorkshire, England, in a little house near the old oak tree and disused railway line where he used to play as a boy in the 1970s. He believes that the most important part of any book is its reader. Without a reader, a book can never come alive.

Excerpt from the book:

 

“The bit where Echo attacks the policewoman.”

 

Jason had no time to run. Everything seemed to happen in a split-second. PC Knaggs lunged forward, taking hold of him, spinning him around. Now her arm was around his throat, her other hand securing him in a powerful arm-lock. They both faced Echo who took up a fighting stance.

“Let the boy go, thou meddlesome hussy.”

The policewoman twisted harder. Jason cried out. Any more and his arm would break.

“I will give thee one final chance, thou sow-faced drab.”

“Cheeky little brat,” said PC Knaggs. “Think you can fight me, eh? No chance. We do self-defence in the police.”

Echo ignored the warning, taking two careful steps backwards before sinking into a low crouch. With a sudden shriek she sprang up in a high-speed, flying kick. Jason ducked his head as Echo’s boot shot above him, the heel slamming into the policewoman’s forehead, sending her cap flying. PC Knaggs yelped, letting go of Jason as she slammed back-first into the nearest pillar. Jason crashed to the ground and began to crawl away. PC Knaggs recovered, her hair dishevelled, and she dusted down her uniform. Swearing and cursing she charged at Echo, fists flying.

Echo avoided the first punch before countering with a quick left to the policewoman’s stomach. The force knocked PC Knaggs to the ground, but she wasn’t finished. Her right leg whipped out in a wide arc to take Echo’s feet from under her. Both combatants were up and facing one other an instant later. The policewoman aimed a snap-kick at Echo who blocked it with a kick of her own. The girl-dryad then attacked in a blur of motion, landing more rapid-fire punches before her open palm struck the policewoman’s chin with a dull crunch. PC Knaggs reeled backwards into the pillar again, her knees sagging before she collapsed to the ground half-dazed. Jason scrambled to his feet and could only stare in horror.

“We’re in big trouble now!” he gasped.
