Rachael A Payne


Born and raised in Northamptonshire, UK it has always been a dream of mine to write a novel.
It's a cliché to say that writing is my passion but for me it really is.
I like to write fiction and fantasy based stories and have previously published a few short stories and a collection of flash fiction. I also occasionally dabble in poetry.

    I really enjoyed this book. As a sci-fi fan I found this to be an exciting and captivating story with an original idea that was well thought out and well written. The story revolves around a group of people who develop a teleportation device that allows them to jump to places instantaneously, who become known as resonators. Later on they face challenges from part of the world which belongs to religious zealots who see their ability as a threat. There were some great, unexpected twists which I can't say anything about without ruining the story. You'll just have to read to find out what they are! The characters are well developed and so are their relationships with each other. The love story between the main characters is believable and modern. Abigail (the main protagonist) has a strong, vibrant personality that you feel for despite her hard exterior. I found the author utilised feasible futuristic technology and scientific ideas which were extremely well researched and well explained where it needed to be. This all gives the story a sense of realism which is easy to follow and enjoyable to read. I definitely recommend this book to all!
