Transcend Book Blast!

Welcome to the Transcend Book Blast! Organized by Heather of SupaGurl Tours. I'm so happy to be part of this tour. I received a copy of the ebook and after reading the first few pages, I felt the pull of Christine's writing and I knew it was going to be intense and an emotional journey to the world she has created. I had to stop, get a hold of myself, and prepare; devote a day for this book to fully appreciate its magnificence. ^_^

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.

I've been saying I can't wait to read this book, but I had to put it off because of other scheduled tours. I have the weekend to read this, surprisingly I have an opening - well not really, but I am adjusting my reading list to accomodate this awesome book.

On October 26, Christine is going to be here with a guest post, one I can't wait to read. And then I'm scheduled to write a review for Transcend on October 1st. So mark your calendars and come back to check out those posts. ;)

If you head over to Christine's blog now, she's having a giveaway! Prizes up for grabs include 4 Special Character Themed Prize Packs featuring a YA Book, a special item related to the character, and swag. Featuring Ien, Kiera, James and Jenna character prizes!

Praise for Transcend

“So powerful, so deep, and dark. It took me on an amazing journey into places most people fear to go...leaving me breathless.”
~Heather McCorkle, Author of To Ride A Puca

“…hauntingly dark and achingly beautiful. A story of love, loss and obsession set against the decadent backdrop of historic New York that sucked me in and wouldn't let go, from the first page until long after I'd finished.”
~ Michelle McLean, Author of Treasured Lies (Entangled, 2012)

“ The story is disturbing and intense and utterly unique…”
~ Ali Cross, Author of Become

“…thought-provoking and emotionally heart wrenching. I haven’t felt this way after reading in quite a while!”

“It is such a powerful and deep story; it will leave you completely breathless.”
~ Brooke from The Cover Contessa
