Title: Dissonance
   Author: Erica O'Rourke
   Format: Hardcover
   Release Date: July 22nd, 2014

     Delancy Sullivan has always known there’s more to reality than what people see. Every time someone makes a choice, a new, parallel world branches off from the existing one. Eating breakfast or skipping it, turning left instead of right, sneaking out instead of staying in bed ~ all of these choices create an alternate universe in which an echo self takes the road not travelled and makes the opposite decision. As a Walker, someone who can navigate between these worlds, Del’s job is to keep all of the dimensions in harmony.

     Normally, Del can hear the dissonant frequency that each world emits as clear as a bell. But when a training session in an off-key world goes horribly wrong, she is forbidden from Walking by the Council. But Del’s not big on following the rules and she secretly starts to investigate these other worlds. Something strange is connecting them and it’s not just her random encounters with echo versions of the guy she likes, Simon Lane.

     But Del’s decisions have unimaginable consequences and, as she begins to fall for the Echo Simons in each world, she draws closer to a truth that the Council of Walkers is trying to hide ~ a secret that threatens the fate of the entire multiverse.

My Stance:

     I found a new enjoyment for Erica O'Rourke when I finished the Torn Trilogy. I kept her on my watch list for future books and frankly I am glad to add her to my Wish list. She's got a great potential in this synopsis. The idea that Delancy can navigate between all the different reality or alternate universes to reality is great. It reminds me of Fringe, and while I didn't watch or enjoy the show, I liked the premise.

     Del strikes me as a girl who is like Mo in Torn, stubborn, independent, and wants to explore and experience the world for herself and not take as much advice from others. Not that she doesn't take advice, but rather the experience of doing it that frames her view. The part that gets me is the whole why doesn't the Council of Walkers want her to journey between the different universes and keep them in line. What does she fear or what is she causing?

     The synopsis is great and while it doesn't give too much away it keeps me aware and interested in this book. I just hope I can see Erica again to get this book signed!
