Echoes is the third and final book in the Inner Self series by Brian R. Ward. Ultimately, this book defines the journey of a spiraling conflict in a deepening mind. As with the previous books, Echoes is constructed of poems, prose and the author's own artwork. The exploration has become broader and more extensive. The content remains true, as in the preceding volumes, of the darkness in humanity with the light that endures. It's a provocative look into how vulnerable and fictitious we can be. With each page turned come continuations, as well as some endings and new doors opened. Echoes represents the ongoing war to achieve and keep inner freedom. These are the echoes that resonate within.
