Book Description

How do you save the world when you can't even save yourself?

Resonance Murphy cares about only one member of the world's population—herself. So, when the self-applauded master of irresponsibility moves to the Maryland Eastern Shore town of Tyne and discovers the fate of all humanity rests on her shoulders, she's more than a little irked.

Thousands of years ago, seven benevolent gods drove their evil brother, Ta-gul, into a collapsing dimension. Now, Ta-gul is about to re-emerge in Tyne and Resonance is the warrior fated to destroy him. With a murderous dark magician; an ancient cult; a desperate fallen goddess; and a mysterious, tattooed young woman each intent on thwarting her by any means, Resonance must put aside her inhibitions and finally place her trust in someone besides herself.

Fearful of the coming days and fascinated by the mercurial young woman, necromancer Quinn Lehrer aligns himself with Resonance. As Quinn helps the reluctant warrior run the gantlet of reality-bending trials that will give her the power to defeat Ta-gul, a series of terrible revelations will force him to decide if Resonance is truly worth aiding.

As the clock ticks down to Ta-gul's ascension, the unlikely couple find themselves in a labyrinth of choice and consequence, where each decision sheds new light on Resonance's long-forgotten past, and brings the reluctant warrior closer to the moment when she will become either the savior of humanity—or the catalyst for its downfall.

5.0 out of 5 stars Resonance Kicks Butt March 7, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I picked this up for 99 cents and it was worth every penny and a lot more to boot. It's full of action, full of ideas, and full of heart. I have to admit I started out disliking the main character, Resonance, but she grew on me over the course of the book, and as you find out more about her, and why she is the way she is, irritation with her apparent selfishness turns to sympathy and empathy for the kind of life she was 'fated' to live. There are also some great supporting characters, including Spider and Quinn, both of whom I liked very much.

This is the author's first book but I was amazed at the deft way she handled both the story and the language. There's some very fine writing here. Do be aware, though, that there are some graphic passages. It's not a love story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not my usual kind of read... April 22, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
but then I know my tastes are way out of the mainstream. Avery DeBow has actually thrown me off my game with Resonance. The title is the name of her protagonist and she is a young woman with multicolored dread locks and loads of attitude. Resonance on the outside appears to be "all about me" but as this fantastic book moves, her substance and true sense of her self and the world around her is drawn out perfectly. Like one reviewer said Res (only her friends can call her that) get's under your skin. But soon enough she is in your mind and you actually care about what is happening to her and how she became involved with beings almost as old as civilization.

I do not know what genre this book falls into directly because it is a story of humanity, good versus evil but not between humans, to say it is between a clan of ancient gods is about the best way I can describe it. Ms. DeBow takes the reader down a quite unexpected path and I found her writing to be high quality and well edited. This is a fairly long work at 130,000+ words but it was so well crafted that I looked for minutes which turned into hours so I could keep reading. It seems that to tell Resonance's story every single word was needed and in it's proper place. Well worth the price and a fine reading experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable August 3, 2012

Dark fantasy is not normally my preferred genre, but this book was recommended to me so I gave it a try. I enjoyed reading this book. The story had enough twists and turns in it to keep you reading. The main character was not exactly likeable, but I found her fascinating nevertheless. I would be interested in hearing more about poor Not.

This is a great read that really shows off the authors skills with prose, creativity and ability to transport the reader into a world that is at once familiar, but a place where you really wouldn't want to live (Some of you might!! :)), and wickedly different than what you might expect.

I'm a great fan of Stephen R. Donaldson and his oh-so-flawed characters that really just piss you off, but make you want to come back for more. Reading Resonance gave me some of those same feelings. Especially the main character. I would never want to be Res's friend, but she was an amazingly strong central figure, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading her.

Since making the difficult decision to move away from narrow market of aquatic arthropod fiction, Avery has devoted her literary energies on the contemporary dark fantasy genre.

Avery lives in the nearly seaside town of Salisbury, Maryland with her husband, their half-gutted house and an undisclosed number of cats. She enjoys reading, writing, gardening, cooking, and bashing the crap out of other women playing roller derby.

This is her first novel.
