I love a good paranormal romance and TRANSCENDENCE handles this in an unique way by weaving in Cole's first encounter with the idea that she might have lived in a previous life. The beginning of this story is hooky with her revisiting her execution back in 1538. While there she meets hawt Griffon, who might have the answers to what she's been experiencing.
I loved both of the characters. Griffon is intriguing and very likeable as he opens himself up more and more to Cole. I also love that he's multicultural. An added plus. And if he looks anything like the cover, I can see why Cole's heart would beat fast.
Cole is an interesting character. I'm not sure how I'd handle it if I found out I had not one but a number of previous lives. Would I search out for my past family? Lovers? Friends?
Rayne is one of those best friends I'd love to have. Sure, she might be a tad bit trippy but she shows her loyalty to Cole even when others might run the other way.
The parents aren't showed in a negative way either. Yes, Cole's mother is a tad bit controlling but they both felt like real parents not caricatures that some YAs show.
There's twists and turns with revelations that surprised me. I love this! I hate 'knowing' who done it right at the beginning. Omololu does a great job of doing this!
C.J. Omololu told me a sequel is in the works! After reading the ending, I can't wait to see what happens next to Cole.
A page-turning mystery with the added bonus of a love that transcends time. Add to that a dash of the paranormal and you have a must read tale.
