Cover Reveal & Giveaway: Transcendence by C.J. Omololu

Scheduled for release June 5, 2012

Description (Taken from Goodreads):
Love isn’t the only emotion to survive death . . .

When a visit to the Tower of London triggers an overwhelmingly real vision of a beheading that occurred centuries before, Cole Ryan fears she is losing her mind. A mysterious boy, Griffon Hall, comes to her aid, but the intensity of their immediate connection seems to open the floodgate of memories even wider.

As their feelings grow, Griffon reveals their common bond as members of the Akhet—an elite group of people who can remember past lives and use their collected wisdom for the good of the world. But not all Akhet are altruistic, and a rogue is after Cole to avenge their shared past. Now in extreme danger, Cole must piece together clues from many lifetimes. What she finds could ruin her chance at a future with Griffon, but risking his love may be the only way to save them both.

Full of danger, romance, and intrigue, Transcendence breathes new life into a perpetually fascinating question: What would you do with another life to live?

And C.J. has kindly allowed me to include a little excerpt: 
     It feels like I’m on the edge of something big, and as much as I don’t want to hear it, I don’t want Griffon to stop. I need to get through to the end.
     “Think for a second,” he says. “The visions you’re having. You didn’t really see that girl being led up to the scaffold…you weren’t watching her, were you?”
     All of a sudden I know what he means even though everything inside pushes against the thought. None of the visions have been like me watching a movie. It’s like being in the movie. “No,” I say, barely above a whisper.
      I squeeze my eyes shut, knowing that it makes sense, but not wanting to admit it, because if I admit it, everything changes. Everything I know about life will be different.
     “The girl on the scaffold is me,” I say quickly. “I’m watching as these things happen to me, not other people.”
       It feels like the truth is dangling there in front of me, just out of reach. All of the pieces of the puzzle are right there, waiting to be put together. “Why is this happening now?”
     “Because,” he says. “You’re starting to remember.”

Ooh, this sounds really intriguing. The Tower of London is sort of creepy anyway and I can't imagine the whole beheading thing. Definitely one to pre-order.

I'm actually really excited about Transcendence - and not just because the cover is freakin' GORGEOUS - but because one of my most favorite books that deeply resonated with me was set in one of the notorious eras where England disposed of it's victims [both innocent & guilty] by locking them up in the infamous Tower of London, usually never to be heard from again! Creepy AND morbidly fascinating at the same time lol

Anyhoo - Transcendence sounds like it will be an excellent read, and thank you for the lovely chance to snag a copy :D
