Resonance by Erica O'Rourke - OPTIONAL

O’Rourke, Erica  Resonance (Dissonance, #2), 434 pgs.  Simon and Schuster, 2015.  $18.99.  Content: Language: R (51 swears; 3 “F”); Mature content: PG-13 (off page sex); Violence: PG-13 (torture).   

Del is a Walker, which means she can cross dimensions, and she has fallen in love with Simon, a half-Walker who is causing rifts in the real world.  Del cleaves Simon into an echo in the hopes of protecting him from the Walker leaders who want to preserve only the real world and cleave all the other dimensions, which would kill the echo people there.  But when she is separated from Simon, she realizes that she doesn’t want to live without him and that the other Walkers need to know that the echoes are real people too even if they don’t exist in the same dimension.  Del takes on the Walker leaders while searching among the dimensions for Simon and she finds herself in the middle of a war.   

This is a sequel to the first book in the series.  The world is creative and the author brings the reader along the different dimensions effortlessly.  The characters are interesting and the world is fascinating because it feels like it could be read, but at times the story line is bogged down with too much detail.  The ending also didn't have enough resolve. 

 HS-OPTIONAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
