ReSpawn: Danny Dies

Bryce Docherty

What if someone could resurrect after death just like in a video game? This book explores this idea and then some.

 

Daniel Trent is left for dead. He is cold, he is scared and he is alone, but not for long. “What if you could never die?” a stranger asks. The mysterious man seems to have appeared out of thin air. He offers Danny a chance to live forever. Danny accepts the strange promise only to find himself in an impossible setting with unbelievable powers; Danny now has the power to resurrect or ReSpawn. To ReSpawn is to die and be reborn in a predetermined area, just like in a video game. Danny unknowing attracts the attention of others with the same ability. He meets a woman Debra, who he’s not sure he can trust, her brother Michael, who seems quite annoyed with him, and finally, a dangerous psychopath Chris, looking to have a little fun. Danny is finding himself dying frequently and appearing in locations he never thought possible. He soon finds himself in the middle of something larger than he could prepare himself for. He must now help his new friends capture a madman and lock him back away in his prison; the only problem is the madman has powers too.

I don't like horror at all. But I wanted to read a few other newbie authors who just joined the site like me. All those emails from people at the top are strange.

Anyhow onto your book review. I grew up on comics and video games. So I get the premise. ReSpawn, life after death and hurrah it's not a vampire novel. Your very visual in your story. I'm picturing the movie in my head and want to read more. My only issue in Chapter 1 is not really knowing Danny yet. I'm sure if I keep reading, I'll decide if he was worth my time or not. When I read vampire tales, I had the same issue.

Your writing is good. I'll keep reading.

I am a huge fan of Dark Tower, thank you Si... I see that you have that kind of bent to your writing. You should do very well here. Let me know what you think of "Just Out of Sight". I hope to be on your bookshelf soon.
Best wishes,
Craig (Bandof1)

Hi Bryce, I'm not qualified to really critique your book but perhaps I can tell you what an average person like myself would think about it as I read it. The premise and question are excellent and thinking about what one would do with endless lives definitely gives one something to ponder on. Your writing is clear and I can visualize the scenes very well. Your dialogue and internal thoughts are excellent. You have some very dry humor in there which is quite nice to discover. I just had one burning question that perhaps you answer later in the book. I read midway into chapter four but hadn't come across it yet. Why? Why Danny? What was so special about him in particular that he was given this 'gift', this 'chance of a lifetime' (excuse the pun) It was an excellent read and I think you have real promise here.
Thanks for letting me read it,
Roy Belletete
