Editorial Reviews

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
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. Reviewer: Jeanna Sciarrotta; Ages 12 up.
Kirkus Reviews
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)
