As Cole begins to accept her new life as Akhet, every new vision from her past lives helps explain more about who she is in this life.Her love for Griffon grows as quickly as her Akhet abilities, while Cole learns to recognize other Akhet around her, including Drew, a young millionaire who reveals a startling connection-he was Cole's true love in Elizabethan England. But Drew's intense desire to restore their past relationship alienates Griffon.
 Now Cole is caught between the person she was in the 15th century and the person she is now, as she searches for her own special role in the Akhet's worldwide plan. With more epic romance and adventure, Intuition brings readers further into this fascinating world where reincarnation changes all the rules for life and love.

Earlier this year I read a great book called TRANSCENDENCE and was looking forward to reading the sequel. So when I received it from Bloomsbury, I was excited to read it.

Cole is Akhet, which means she's lived other lifetimes and is slowly remembering a bunch of them. The strangest and smallest things can spark off a memory, but once it does she never forgets. She's in a happy relationship with Griffon, who also happens to be Akhet. Actually, he's the one who introduced her to this world. With the help of his mother, Cole is starting to understand the level of her empath skills and how to read people. She can also tell when someone is just like her.
Even though a terrible accident ruined her chances of becoming a talented cello player, she's happy teaching kids how to play and is slowly getting back into the groove of playing music. Hanging out with Griffon and her best friend Rayne completes her days. Until the mysterious Drew enters her life. He's older, wealthy, nice looking, and is convinced they were so madly in love with each other in a past life that they need to be together in this one too.
His pursuing her interferes with her relationship with Griffon, but nothing is more important than keeping Rayne safe, because someone's determined to steal her away...
This was a terrific sequel filled with mystery, intrigue and a young woman trying to find her place in the world without letting the many pasts she's left behind get in the way. Trying to stay true to herself in this life might mean turning her back on the past, but before she can do that she needs to find out for herself what really matters.
There was only one person that grated on my nerves, and that was Drew. The handsome billionaire trying to sweep the sweet teenager off her feet with lavish gifts, while also trying to make her feel guilty for what they lost in their past life together, was downright manipulative. But you know what? It wasn't a bad thing, because it showcased Cole's resistance, determination and ultimate revelation.
Intuition is a wonderful addition to the world of the Akhet. Not only does it open up the world so we experience other facets of it, but we also get to follow Cole in her journey of self-discovery. I loved how she's determined to make the most out of this lifetime, yet when the past trickles into her path she's open to exploring it. There were several twists, turns and the level of danger is certainly amped up. 
I loved this book as much as the first one.
