Transcend by Christine Fonseca
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
Transcend was beautifully written poetic and tragic, but it
was a bit sad and dark for me but I still had keep reading, I needed to know
what happened at the end. I felt so sad for Ien and what he went through. If you
love dark books boy this will be wonderful for you and I recommend you read it!
We meet 17 year old Ien who loves music but with his family’s
expectations they will not allow him to play. But then he meets Kiera and
everything changes, he imagines a future with her and without his parents, that
is until a horrible accident happens.
Ien is sent to die in a sanatorium and while he’s there he
is tortured by his thoughts. When he gets out he wants revenge on the people
who did this to him- His parents. But when he finds out the people he trusted
the most betrayed him things turn tragic.
