Every action has an equal and opposite reaction, and Echo can feel a great and terrible darkness rising in the distance. Cosmic forces threaten to tear the world apart.    Echo has already lost her home, her family, and her boyfriend. Now, as the firebird, her path is filled with even greater dangers than the ones she's already overcome.    She knows the Dragon Prince will not fall without a fight.    Echo must decide: can she wield the power of her true nature--or will it prove too strong for her, and burn what's left of her world to the ground?    Welcome to the shadow hour.
