TBR Review: Transcendence by O.J. Omololu

Transcendence #1
352 pages
Published by Walker Children's
Release Date: May 21st, 2013

When a visit to the Tower of London triggers an overwhelmingly real vision of a beheading that occurred centuries before, Cole Ryan fears she is losing her mind. A mysterious boy, Griffon Hall, comes to her aid, but the intensity of their immediate connection seems to open the floodgate of memories even wider.

As their feelings grow, Griffon reveals their common bond as members of the Akhet—an elite group of people who can remember past lives and use their collected wisdom for the good of the world. But not all Akhet are altruistic, and a rogue is after Cole to avenge their shared past. Now in extreme danger, Cole must piece together clues from many lifetimes. What she finds could ruin her chance at a future with Griffon, but risking his love may be the only way to save them both.

Full of danger, romance, and intrigue, Transcendence breathes new life into a perpetually fascinating question: What would you do with another life to live?

My Review:
Transcendence was beyond interesting. I wanted to read this book since the cover has an interracial couple on the cover. I was super excited about the cover I decided I had to have this book. Luckily my cover love turned out super well because I really enjoyed this book.

Cole Ryan visits the Toward of London and starts having flashbacks of the past. That’s where she meets Griffon. Griffon and Cole slowly begin to unravel Cole’s past. Cole and Griffon who get flashes of their past lives and what it was like to live their past lives and having their memories of every life.

Transcendence was super interesting. There’s romance, mystery, and reincarnation. I really enjoyed the storyline since it’s not something I’ve read before. I’m not super into historical fiction so I generally stay away from books that have to do with reincarnation.

Cole was an interesting character. She’s brave and very loyal to her friend despite starting a relationship, which I really liked. She grows a lot from the kind of denying anything is happening to understand and embracing what’s going on. Griffon was super cute and I enjoyed how he and Cole started to grow together.

Overall Transcendence is a very interesting and unique story. There were some very great realistic characters whom I enjoyed reading about. The story is fast-paced and filled with adventure, mystery, history, and romance.

I write as C.J., but you can call me Cynthia. My YA novel DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS came out in early 2010. My next book TRANSCENDENCE came out in June of 2012, followed by the sequel INTUITION in June of 2013. My newest book is a YA thriller called THE THIRD TWIN and will be out in February 2015 followed by another standalone thriller RECOVERY in early 2016.

You might notice that I only give 4 or 5 star reviews. That isn't because I love everything, it's because I only review things I really love. As a writer, I know all that goes into making a book, and while a story might not strike a chord with me, who am I to say it won't with someone else? I hate tomatoes, but lots of people like them, and it's the same with a book. So, if I rate something here, it's means that I'd let you borrow my copy, but I really do want you to give it back so that I can read it again.
