In this inventive romantic thriller, Del has the power to navigate between alternate realities--and the power to save multiple worlds.

Delancey knows for sure that there is more than one universe. Many more. Because every time someone makes a choice, a new, parallel world is spun off 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 alternate universes in which echo selves take the roads not traveled. Del knows all of this because she's a Walker, someone who can navigate between the worlds, and whose job is to keep the dimensions in harmony.

But Del's decisions have consequences too. Even though she's forbidden from Walking after a training session goes horribly wrong, she secretly starts to investigate other dissonant worlds. She's particularly intrigued by the echo versions of Simon Lane, a guy who won't give her the time of day in the main world, but whose alternate selves are uniquely interested. But falling for Simon draws Del closer to a truth that the Council of Walkers is trying to hide--a secret that threatens the fate of the entire multiverse.

I read Dissonance a while back and really enjoyed it. I finished this book in a few sittings because it is a long book to read from beginning to end in one sitting.
The plot is well paced with a good mix of action, drama, and romance that you would expect. This plot speed sometimes fluctuates from time to time as more information is added.
The characters are decent. The main characters were okay in terms of description, but the supporting characters were fairly vague and didn't have much body to them other than being the antagonist. The personalities are fairly straightforward.
Overall, this is a pretty good read if you want something with action and such.
