Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jeanna Sciarrotta
Cole has begun to come into her new Akhet abilities in this sequel to Transcendence, and with each passing day she remembers more and more of her former lives. The stronger she gets, the more the Akhet will need her for their worldwide plans and the more she relies on Griffon and their relationship. When a mysterious boy shows up at a party, however, her whole world turns upside down as he triggers memories of a past life and past love that she had long forgotten. Who is this strange boy and had he really been her soul mate? As Cole struggles to make sense of what this means, she is thrown for a loop when Griffon abandons her. She does not know how to deal with these new complications. The strange newcomer introduces her to a world that she never knew existed and opens her eyes to the possibilities of her gift and the world she now belongs to. Readers of Transcendence will immediately be sucked into this new adventure and though the plot drags at times, the new twist of Cole’s former love will keep fans engaged until the very last page.

VOYA - Heather Pittman
In this sequel to Transcendence (Walker, 2012/Voya June 2012), seventeen-year-old Cole is adapting to her new life as an Akhet. She is part of a community of people who can remember all of their past lives. Griffon, her boyfriend, is also Akhet, and part of a group that uses the skills and memories acquired over centuries to try to make the world a better place. Along with adjusting to her new abilities, Cole is also coming to grips with the drastic changes to her future caused by an injury that derailed her once-promising career as a professional cellist. In the midst of this emotional turmoil, Cole must deal with an old enemy, an even older love, and a conspiracy that threatens both her and her loved ones. This is a solid sequel. Cole is a realistic teen heroine, finding her way in a compelling new world. Her choices are sometimes thoughtful and mature, and sometimes reckless and impulsive. The mythology of this series is compelling, giving the concept of reincarnation a fresh reboot. Cole learns about her new life slowly but surely and is starting to question what she is told. She and Griffon have a rough road to follow, though, when her husband from a past life makes an appearance in this one. Cole has much to learn and many difficult decisions to make, and it is delightful to discover this new world with her. With a nice blend of action, mystery, and romance, this series is a must for any library with a popular paranormal collection. Reviewer: Heather Pittman

This first sequel to the reincarnation story Transcendence (2012) starts slowly but builds up. At first, Cole and her heartthrob Griffon act as though they're characters in a standard romance novel. As the plot progresses however, events from Cole's past life in 16th-century England begin to intrude on her blossoming romance. Drew, a 20-year-old Australian who already has built an enormous fortune, claims to be Cole's husband from that previous life, the one in which the two pledged eternal love. When he learns of Drew's identity, Griffon instantly cuts off his relationship with Cole. Here the story speeds up. Drew introduces Cole into a new society of reincarnated beings, all wealthy but with few scruples. He offers her an easy life that she finds difficult to resist. Meanwhile, she continues trying to recover from the injury to her arm that has cut short her cello career and giving cello lessons. Readers may need a chart to keep track of all the new terms introduced to describe the reincarnated characters. In addition to Akhet and Sekhem, there are now Iawi, Khered and a few other Egyptian-derived terms. While expanding Cole's romance possibilities, Omololu introduces another mystery: What does Veronique, Cole's nemesis from the first installment, intend to do with a secret formula she's developed? Thus is the next sequel set up nicely even as Cole's romantic choices resolve. Cole's tale is still an interesting one, but the series can't take too much more romantic push and pull. (Paranormal suspense. 12 & up)

Best Bits: I was a little nervous when I read the synopsis of this one. I really enjoyed the first book, but the blurb above made the book seem like it focused solely on a love triangle. It seemed that way for the first portion of the book, but the story was about more than Griffon, Cole, and Drew. It was a great look into the way that love changes and grows. Of course, it's up to you to decide if you believe in past lives, but the book brings up an interesting question. If you could remember past lives, would you spend time hoping to reconnect with previous romantic partners, or would you try to experience new people and things? There's also a pretty amazing twist thrown in, just in case you were wondering whether this one was as suspenseful as the first book. It was completely unexpected, and I really can't explain it because it would give everything away. I will say, that it has really opened up the possibilities for the future of the series, and it makes Cole and Griffon's roles that much more important in the grand scheme of things. When I interviewed Omololu during the release of the first book, Transcendence, she said that she considering this series to be contemporary fiction (whereas I had labelled it fantasy/supernatural). I have to say, that she has the ability to weave together various genres that makes it hard to really put a stamp on it. I'll have to investigate where my local bookstore has it placed. Nit Picks: I do think that the love triangle wasn't completely necessary to the story. It was done well, but I feel like we get love triangles in most (99.9%) of YA novels these days. I understand the role that it played in the book, and the development of Griffon and Cole as a couple, but it just felt like the other plot developments could have kept my attention without that added relationship drama.

By far the best book ive read all year. I even caught myself silently crying at times. The love triangle is heartwrenching and full of suspense and thrill. It was an amazing book. Truely a MUST READ! My only concern is 'is there gonna be a third book'?!

I'm always nervous to read sequels because they often don't live up to the expectations I have after reading the first book. That was not the case with Intuition, however. It was another great paranormal story full of mystery, action, and romance.  Intuition picked up right where the previous book left off. Cole needed to strengthen her unique ability to sense people's innermost emotions in order to further the Akhet mission.  This time it wasn't just Cole that found herself in danger--her best friend's life depended on her.  Cole found herself drawn to Drew despite her feelings for Griffon. While I normally dislike love triangles in YA, I found this one really intriguing because of the past life connections Cole had with both Drew and Griffon. I really wasn't sure who Cole would choose, and I found myself drawn to both of the love interests in different ways.  I'm not sure if there are any more books planned for this series, but I will read them if there are! I love these characters and this world that the author has created, and I'd definitely read more.

While I thoroughly enjoyed the first novel in this series, Transcendence, I absolutely adored this second installment. Cole is much more defined and the fact that there’s a bit of a love triangle wrapped me right up—mainly because it was so different from what I’m used to. For those of you who’ve read Transcendence, you know that Griffon and Cole are old souls who remember their past lives, and they’ve fallen in love. But, when Drew shows up, a soulmate of Cole’s from long ago, things start to heat up, and Griffon backs down. Now, while this absolutely killed me since I’m always team whoever got there first (strange, isn’t it?) but Omololu does a great job turning the tides and making Drew just as dreamy and swoon-worthy as Griffon, and with the plaguing question of “what if” on the horizon, it’d be a shame if we didn’t get to see what it’s be like if Cole and Drew were together. And so we do. Props to Griffon for stepping back and being the bigger man, understanding destiny and fate to a level that Cole can’t quite grasp, but it was heartbreaking to watch. Add in the cold should Griffon suddenly turns on Cole, and there’s no where else for her to go but to Drew. But will they last? Or does fate have something else in store? I really, really loved this novel. Not only for the love triangle aspect, mind you, but because the Akhet are really interesting people and I sort of wish I could be one, too. I know living forever isn’t all that glamorous, but to remember each past life, if there were such a thing, would be awesome, or at least I think so. Maybe if I experienced it, I’d feel differently? Who knows, but I love the world that Omololu has created for her audience as she pieces everything together, and the fact that there’s a murder mystery on top of it all, well… it just takes the cake. I was surprised when I learned who the culprit was, and my heart was definitely in my throat a few times as I read, a sign of a great book as far as I’m concerned. And, what I also liked about this novel is that, though a sequel, I didn’t feel like I had to have read the first novel to understand what was happening in this one, which is always a plus when they release a year apart. But, definitely read them both!
