Excerpt | Dissonance by Erica O'Rourke

If you’ve read my bloggery for any amount of time, you’re probably aware of how much I love multiverse theory, and how long I anticipated Dissonance before I got lucky enough to read it early! (In case you need a refresher, here’s my review.) So when I was contacted and asked to be part of the blog tour for this book, I was thrilled!

Today I’m sharing part 1 of an excerpt from Dissonance, that will hopefully entice you enough to continue reading the rest of the pieces throughout the this tour, and — more importantly — to want to read the whole book!

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.

  1. Interesting excerpt! I don’t really know what to make of it because it was so short and I mostly had no idea what was going on (lol), but I love the intrigue it created. Still not sure if I’ll be buying this book, though — it’s been getting a lot of mixed reviews. Sounds like people either love it or hate it. All the same, thanks for sharing, Kelley!
