Resonances

The Fireborn Chronicles: #2

While on a mission to recover one of the Overlord's missing agents, the crew discovers two new and dangerous psionic talents, as well as an ancient conjuring race. As the crew tries to harness the power of these new talents, and stabilize their recovered but injured agent, the Overlord Rael discovers more about his personal history and his inheritance of the Overlord power.

Resonances is a vast, and sometimes confusing, character-driven telepathic adventure. Most of the plot is driven by the conflicts and motivations of each of the characters, some motivated for noble reasons and others driven for obscure reasons. The world-building, creating a huge psionic civilization which is ruled by an Overlord with both technological and psychic ability, is reminiscent of Anne McCaffrey's Talents series. However, with so many characters with unclear aims, the plot meanders from scene to scene, making this more like a serial than a novel. As the second in the series, The Fireborn Chronicles may develop and reveal the aims and destinies of each character, and it will appeal to readers who like telepathic protagonists.
