Transcendence has a really unique plot and twist on the whole reincarnation idea. I loved learning about the Akhet and all the characters past lives. I wanted the stakes to be higher. Parts of the story just felt a little flat to me. I did really enjoy it, I just felt like parts of the book were missing that spark that would take it to the next level.
I loved the characters. I loved Griffin - seriously, could he be any more adorable? I loved a lot of the more minor characters - like Rayne, Kat, and even Peter who only shows up for a short while. I just loved how real all the characters felt, no matter how small their role was.
C.J. Omololu has spun a really intriguing tale with Transcendence and I am really curious to see where the story will go from here in the sequel, Fated. Transcendence was fast paced and was an absolute page turner.
