Transcend Blog Tour featuring Book Excerpt by Christine Fonseca

You guys! I am super thrilled and definitely excited to be a part of the THE TRANSCEND Blog Tour!

Heather of SupaGirl Book Tours was incredibly awesome enough to put this tour together and organize it. You guys....this is an A W E S O M E book and you should definitely check it out. I mean, what's not to love about it, right?! Right.

Christine Fonseca will totally hook you with this book straight away. It is just that thrilling, and adventurous, with twists and turns that you won't be expecting. I mean, how on earth do I sell this faubulous book?!

I mean, really...except to say: READ IT!!!


There is so so so much to love about this book as Christine Fonseca brilliantly pens an intriguing mysteriously suspsenseful adventure full of beautiful dark gothic romance, danger, and amazing imagery that any reader is sure to fall in love with.

In Transcend, 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.

Book Excerpt from
Transcend by Christine Fonseca

When Transcend was in its infancy, I played around with different stories and different points of view before really shaping the story into what it is now. One of the earliest versions featured a dual first person POV, alternating between Ien and Kiera. In this scene, we see, from Kiera’s POV, Ien’s accident and her reaction when she arrives on scene.

(**Note, author split the scene into three posts, see the link at the end for the next post).

Praise for Transcend Includes...

“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

~ Jen from Geekygamergal's Musings
