Transcendence - C.J. Omololu To be honest, I was so close to putting this book down. I am not really a fan of prologues and I felt that this one didn't do the story justice. Yes, it is very important to the story, but I feel like it would have been better placed after she meets Griffon. That said, once I got into this story, I completely fell in love with it. I love this idea of love through time and once I was able to bond with Cole, I really felt for her. Her love of cello is an awesome addition to the story, and I felt like her love for the instrument is genuine. I also really appreciated the theme of being able to right what you did wrong in the lives before, and the idea that these Akhet work for the greater good and use their knowledge for unselfish purposes. The love story in this one is good, and it felt natural to me. I loved how they interacted and they had enough complications to keep everything interesting, especially the twist at the end! There was always something going on, keeping me interested. C.J. Omololu kept a good pace though, and there wasn't so much stuff going on that I was confused. I also appreciated how everything, especially the flashbacks which at times seemed a bit random, all wove together and told a great story. This story has so many twists, and I would've never imagined what ended up happening. I am so eager to read the next installment so that I can find out what happens next.
