Resonance Book One: Birds of Passage by Ben White

I won this book from the Member Giveaways on LibraryThing.

This is the second book I've read in the recent past about dystopian society set in the future.  As with the previous book, I really enjoyed reading this one!

This is a book about a "talented" group of people who all have abilities that are supernatural.  They are shepharded by "Fin" who is an middle-late aged gentleman who has powers to seek out people of his "kind".  The book consists of stories of each person's past and present, some who are aware of their special powers, and others who just know that they are different.  Mr Fin rescues each of them from their modern-day "witch-hunt", as many of these young people have had their powers found out about and are not too much different in their opinions as our historical witch hunts. They agree to go with Mr Fin after hearing of a place that he knows of that will be safe for them all to live in peace.

Each town that they travel to, they end up picking up another "talented" person and Mr Fin convinces them to go along.  It becomes apparent that they are being followed by another group of "talents" who are trying to sabotage thier plight and steal from them an item that Mr Fin is trying to recover.

The detail and imagination in this story is very interesting, as well as very compassionate and feeling.  This was a very well written book.  I was confused a little at the end, however, I am sure that I will think about this ending and figure it out in a day or two.

I would recommend this book to people who like adventure, the supernatural and basically great, imaginative books. Four stars!
