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.

With Halloween coming up next week this anthology is kind of the perfect read for the occasion. Especially for fans of the paranormal who might be a little tired with the traditional.

The eight stories in this anthology are anything but traditional, and each one is equally amazing. It caught me from the beginning, and I spent the rest of the book trying to find one story I wouldn't like.
What can I say? It's an anthology, usually there's only one maybe two that you'll absolutely love, a few you like and the rest will be lucky if you remember them.

That's not the case here! I loved the first story and the next one and all the rest that followed.

Normally with anthologies I'll separate the stories and individually rate and review each one, but I'm not going to do that this time. That would be like singling one out as a favorite, it's just not possible.

These eight stories are sweet, mysterious, and a couple are even a little scary; the perfect combination for any paranormal fan.
