Book Tour: Transcend by Christine Fonseca Character Bio

TRANSCEND by Christine Fonseca

Short Blurb:

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.

Character Bio – Introducing Jenna

            Thanks so much for hosting a leg of my tour today! I’d like to introduce you to one of the characters that plays an important role as the story unfolds—Jenna Avery:

Born in 1878, Jenna works in the Montgomery household. Born into her current status, she knows that her place will always be that of servant. She is blond and pale, her hands rough from the hard work she is forced to complete every day. She first came to the Montgomery household as a young child when her mother took a job in the household. Being close in age to Ien, they formed a friendship that has lasted through the years. She is always the one to fill Ien in on the happens of the house. When she turned 13, she stopped her education and joined the ranks of the servants. Although Mrs. Montgomery discourages any friendship between Ien and the staff, Jenna and Ien have maintained their close friendship throughout the years, sharing letters and secrets as they always have. Jenna expects nothing more from her life that what she currently has, though she secretly fantasizes about something much more. 

Jenna Quote:  Jenna drew a long, slow breath. “I know you, Ien. You. And your face…it doesn’t define who you are. Not to me.” (Transcend, p72)

You can learn more about Jenna with a special character interview on 10/4 with the Cover Contessa.

Praise for Transcend: 

“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

~ Michelle McLean, Author of Treasured Lies (Entangled, 2012)

“ The story is disturbing and intense and utterly unique…”
~ Ali Cross, Author of Become

“…thought-provoking and emotionally heart wrenching. I haven’t felt this way after reading in quite a while!”
