Waiting on Wednesday [3]: Transcend

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, I chose an upcoming stand-alone novel by one of my new favorite authors, Christine Fonseca.

Expected publication: September 18th 2012 by Compass Press

All seventeen-year-old composer Ien Montgomery desires is an escape from his family's rigid expectations for his life; someone to inspire his music. When he meets a beautiful violin-prodigy, Kiera McDougal, his life music takes on new life. With her, he imagines a future outside of his parents’ control. That is, until a horrible accident tears them apart.

Sent to die in a sanatorium, Ien’s obsession for Kiera grows unbearable. Tortured by thoughts he can’t escape and the truth of his monstrous disfigurement, he flees, desperate to exact revenge on the people that ruined his life – his parents. But, vengeance is empty. Betrayed by those closest to him, Ien discovers that the price for his happiness may be his sanity.

Set amidst the landscape of New York's Gilded Age, and inspired by Phantom of the Opera, TRANSCEND exposes the fine line between love and madness.

Isn't the cover lovely? I've been admiring it ever since it was revealed.

I think Christine is an amazing writer, that is why I am excited to read more of her works. Read my review of Lacrimosa, the first book in the Requiem series. You can also get a free digital copy of Dies Irae, the prequel to Lacrimosa, and the short story that follows it, Mea Culpa is also free to download in Amazon and Barned & Noble.
