Resonance

A dark and thrilling tour de force about three young people drawn into righting an ancient wrong.
What does it mean to be alive? What is it worth to stay alive?
Ireland, 1890: two ruthless immortals prowl the theatre district in search of food for their ‘Angel’. Ancient, pitiless and caring for none but their own twisted family, they will stop at nothing to maintain their grip on life.
A seamstress, the young man who loves her and a penniless American magician soon find themselves imprisoned in a snow-bound country estate, the latest additions to the family’s warped collection. Here, they are nothing but food, nothing but entertainment, and soon they will be nothing at all.
Far from their homes and fighting for survival, Tina, Joe and Harry will come to understand that far more is at stake than their lives.
A rich and provocative feat of the imagination from the creator of the Moorehawke Trilogy.
‘In Resonance, Celine Kiernan blends the supernatural, sci-fi and romance to superb effect: highly regarded, her work is considered as compelling ‘and unsettling as Poe’s ghastlier moments’.’ The Saturday Independent, Ireland

Remake
It’s the Hollywood of the future, where moviemaking’s been computerized and live-action films are a thing of the past. It’s a Hollywood where Humphrey Bogart and Marilyn Monroe are starring together in A Star Is Born, and if you don’t like the ending, you can change it with the stroke of a key.
A Hollywood of warmbodies and sim-sex, of drugs and special effects, where anything is possible. Except for what one starry-eyed young woman wants to do: dance in the movies. It’s an impossible dream, but Alis is not willing to give up. With a little magic and a lot of luck, she just might get her happy ending after all.
