Transcendence by C.J. Omololu




Love isn’t the only emotion to survive death . . .

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 THOUGHTS)        
 Transcendence is an intriguing novel about having a second chance to right the wrongs in your life. C.J. Omololu has written a fascinating storyline that pulled me into this secretive world of the Akhets and wouldn't let go. Akhets are a select few who can remember their past lives. They are reincarnated because they have a responsibility to destiny to change their and other’s mistakes, and to set destiny right again. But there is some who just want revenge. The rogue Akhets are those who seek only revenge for the wrong done to them. They could care less about making destiny right. I also love the way C.J.Omololu has Cole, a new Akhets, having glimpses of her two past lives in this novel. One she will set right with her destiny and the other she will face in the next book, Continuation, which I am so wanting to read right now. I love the love triangle that's coming in the next book with Cole, but this is a totally different kind when one guy is your husband from the 1500's and the other guy is your executioner. Oh yes, Continuation is going to be just as fantastic as Transcendence, I'll definitely be waiting for this next book .

Cole is having a lot of deja vu lately. When she starts getting visions of people and places in history, she didn't know exist, she thinks she’s going crazy until she meets Griffon, who tells her she an Akhet. Cole as an Akhet will have to figure out the mystery of what went wrong in her past life to correct the wrong that was done, but the one she’s trusting to help her also has a dark secret past he's hiding from Cole, and it could cost her her life and life of the one she loves. Griffon is a Iawi Akhet. Which means he can remember all his past lives, unlike Cole, who only sees glimpses of hers. Destiny has bought Cole and Griffon together again, but will love be there destiny or will history repeat Griffon's dark past?

Transcendence is an enthralling mystery that had me putting together clues right along with Cole. Griffon and Cole’s romance is a dark and dangers one, of two truths and a lie. I recommend Transcendence as a must read that will have you asking yourself what would you do if you could have another life to live?
