Lizzie Davenport has been reincarnated from Regency Era, England ... but she doesn't know it yet.

Then Drew Carmichael transfers into Lizzie's high school at the beginning of the year, and she feels a connection to him, almost like she knows him. She can't stop thinking about him, but whenever she tries talking with him about the mysteries behind her feelings, he makes it clear that he wants nothing to do with her. Reaching him is even more difficult because she has a boyfriend, Jeremy, who has started to become full of himself after being elected co-captain of the varsity soccer team, and her flirtatious best friend Chelsea starts dating Drew soon after his arrival. So why can't she get him out of her mind?

Even though Lizzie knows she should let go of her fascination with Drew, fighting fate isn't going to be easy.

How far would you go to get revenge?

When Chelsea Givens discovered that her ex-boyfriend Drew dumped her to be with her former best friend Lizzie, she'd never felt so betrayed in her life. Then her new friend Shannon tells her she can help set things right. Chelsea's willing to listen, but what Shannon wants her to believe -- that she shared a past life with Drew -- is impossible. And what she wants her to do to get him back … well, it's downright crazy.

Could Shannon be telling the truth? And if she is, what lengths will Chelsea go if it means making Lizzie pay?

Find out in Vengeance, the second part of the Transcend Time Saga.

*Vengeance is the short story that bridges the events in Remembrance and the final novel in the Saga.

IT'S A RACE AGAINST TIME.

Now, strange things keep happening to Lizzie. Things that are omens of darkness to come. A curse has doomed her to die an early death, just as she did in her past life. To make matters worse, even if she can figure out who cast the curse, it's irreversible. There's only one option left for her to save herself. It's crazier than anything she's heard yet, and to do it, she'll need Drew and Chelsea's help.

Because to make things right, they must go back to when it all began ... and Lizzie discovers that the final events in her past life were more sinister than she ever imagined.

Lizzie’s Top Ten Favorite Love Stories 

1) Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen – Lizzie and Mr. Darcy (Book, the BBC miniseries, and the 2005 movie)
This is Lizzie’s favorite love story of all time, because it’s the one she relates to the most. She saw the movie in middle school and fell in love with it, but didn’t read the book until it was assigned for her AP English class at the start of her junior year. She fell in love with the book. Realizing that a lot from the book was left out of the movie, she watched the BBC miniseries, since it is much more detailed. She loved that, too!

2) Twilight by Stephenie Meyer – Edward and Bella (book series)
Lizzie read the first Twilight book in 2005 when it came out, and she was hooked! She loves the romance between Bella and Edward, and is 100% Team Edward. But while she loves the books, she wasn’t a big fan of the movies.

3) The Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa – Meghan and Ash (book series)
This is also one of Lizzie’s favorite book series. She enjoyed the first one, but for her the love story between Meghan and Ash really bloomed in the second book of the series, The Iron Daughter. This series has an amazing love story with some heartbreaking moments!

4) Titanic – Jack and Rose (movie)
Because the love story in Titanic is heartbreaking and intense. It’s too bad Jack has to die at the end! 


5) Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare – Clary and Jace (book series)
The love between Clary and Jace is so intense in this book, because it’s forbidden and yet the reader is rooting for them anyway! Hopefully the movie will be a good representation of the book. Luckily, Lizzie discovered this series over the summer, so she was able to read them straight through.

6) Moulin Rouge – Christian and Satine (movie)
Lizzie and Chelsea watch this movie together all the time when they have sleepovers. The music is wonderful, as is the love story. If only Satine didn’t die at the end!

7) Downton Abbey – Mary and Matthew (TV series)
Lizzie loves this television series, and watched it in a marathon over the summer. The love story between Mary and Matthew takes a long time to grow, but they eventually get past all their troubles to be together. Lizzie’s favorite episode is the Christmas special, when Matthew finally proposes to Mary, and she says yes.

8) The Vampire Diaries – Elena and Damon (TV series)
Lizzie has read the original four books, but she prefers the television series. She wishes Elena would let things happen with Damon, though, instead of continuously pining for Stefan. (And vampire Elena ROCKS.)

9) William and Kate (Real Life Love Story!)
Lizzie adores William and Kate’s love story, and loved watching the royal wedding on TV. It’s a fairy tale come to life.

10) The OC – Ryan and Marissa AND Seth and Summer (TV series)
Lizzie and Drew have been watching the DVD’s of The OC together, and Lizzie is loving it! She especially loves the first episode, when Ryan and Marissa first meet.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

In the fall of 2008, Michelle saw Taylor Swift’s “Love Story” music video for the first time. She thought up a story to go along with the video, and wrote the first chapter as a homework assignment for class. Her classmates and teacher loved it so much that they wanted to know what happened next, so Michelle continued writing, and that story eventually became Remembrance, the first novel in the Transcend Time Saga. She’s so happy to be able to share this series with you, and hopes you enjoy reading it as much as she loved writing it!

Michelle lives in Florida, and is hard at work writing more novels for young adults.

  1. I haven't read this series yet but it's in my wish list. Looking forward to starting it soon. I DO believe in reincarnation. There's too many people who have had the experience of past lives to discount it.
