REVIEW: Echo Cycle by Patrick Edwards

A dystopian reimagining of a Europe falling apart, Echo Cycle is a novel in a class of its own. Patrick Edwards draws a vivid image of what could happen to a future after Brexit, the separation of the United Kingdom from the rest of Europe after the crumbling of the European Union. The reader is thrust into the story with a prologue, narrating a school trip to Rome before the borders are fully sealed. Winston Monk, unhappy and bullied, finds out his dreams have been shattered, and runs away, only to find himself in ancient instead of modern Rome.
