Discover the secrets of a siren, fly with a hawk girl over the mountains of Montana, and flee supernatural party-crashers as the décor comes to life in this magical journey through paranormal stories.
Along the way, watch for ghosts in a haunted house, or ride through the moonlight with a stranger. Save a comatose boy who has lost his soul, and don’t forget to bring your garlic and wolfsbane—you never know when the shadows will snag you.
Transcendent includes eight stories of magic, love, death, and choice by some of the newest names in young adult fiction.
Thoughts: Spooky! This is a collection of short stories written by several authors. They are all quite weird and unusual. Each one of the tales reminded me of the Twilight Zone, especially the story about the girl that wanted her party to be memorable and that it was. One of the stories I liked is the story Seduction of the Siren, where a young man has just been heartbroken by the girl he loved after she left him for another guy. He finds himself stuck on a boat with her new boyfriend and in addition to that they get shipwrecked on the island with the ugliest woman they've ever seen but really beauty is much deeper than what is on the surface. I also liked the story of the hawk, though it's a really odd story of acceptance and destiny. The ghost story is really cool; I like the concept of this one because it is a good example of family and how our loved ones are always with us even as death separates us physically. All in all, interestingly creepy read.
