Part one of “The Transcend Time Saga” was indeed a good start for the series. At least it made me look forward for the next books. Though it has several items that were not to my taste, I did enjoy my time listening to the audiobook.
Lizzie and Drew are meant to be together, or so it seems soon after they meet. He knows, she will soon find out. There will be no problems here, but unfortunately, Elizabeth has a boyfriend and he will become her best friend’s boyfriend. Yup, a little tricky here. Now, it seems that Drew is trying to avoid hurting Elizabeth again in this life time as well. Therefore, he will try avoiding her at all costs. However, history has always a way of repeating itself and some things just cannot be undone or unwritten.
I liked both main characters well enough. Lizzie is an average student, determined to become better at the subjects of interest to her. She tries to be a best friend and a best girlfriend, though it sometimes is difficult to be good at both. She comes to realize her feelings for the new boy, Drew, are difficult to ignore, especially since she has a feeling this is not at all new to them. Drew, on the other hand, knows more of the story, but is not willing to share it for the time being. His way of dealing with his feelings was not at all believable. I mean, if you one to avoid someone you like or love, you definitely should not hang out with said person’s best friend.
I completely hated Chelsea and Jeremy. They were both self-centered and not at all the best friend and boyfriend one should desire. Because of them, Lizzie seems to be a little naïve as well. The connection between all characters is somehow typical for high school. But for me, it was enough.
The narration was ok as well, the writing simple and to the point. Even if I may not be comfortable with the setting or development of the whore reincarnation issue, I am still waiting to see what happens next. It’s a good book to pass the time, not excellent or amazing, but for now, it’s good. Let’s see what happens next!
