Cello prodigy Cole Ryan always thought her musical gift was just that—a gift. But soon after meeting, and being saved by Griffon Hall, she learns the real reason for her talent. Griffon is a member of the Akhet, those blessed with the ability to remember their past lives and collect the knowledge of their past selves to use in this life. After revealing this to Cole, he tells her the real news—she’s Akhet too. From there, Griffon begins to stalk and harass Cole until she succumbs to the fact that she’s Akhet. As Cole struggles to grasp with the fact that she’s not just a bland, ordinary girl anymore (now she’s a bland, reincarnated girl), her life is repeatedly threatened. Cole and Griffon discover that the force trying to take Cole’s life is another Akhet, whose motive appears to be one of revenge. Cole is finally forced to embrace her true self and discover what happened in her past lives to make somebody so intent on killing her in this one… but can she do it before it’s too late? Unfortunately, Transcendence is a novel that can easily be forgotten in the ocean of other paranormal young adult novels. It fits right in with the rest, with little to differentiate it from the other books out there. Not a novel that will stick with fans of young adult literature, the main thing Transcendence has going for it is that it is entertaining. It also does a decent job of keeping you guessing, always unsure of what's going to come next. I’ll most likely be reading the sequel, but it’s definitely not a priority for me.
