Now a bit about Transcend:

All seventeen-year-old composer Ien Montgomery desires is to find his muse - someone to ease the burdens of his family's rigid expectations and the recent death of his older brother. When he meets a beautiful violin-prodigy, Kiera McDougal, his 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 just be his sanity.

Set against the backdrop of late 19th century New York and inspired by Leroux’s Phantom of the Opera, TRANSCEND combines the tragedy of Shakespeare’s Hamlet with the psychological suspense of Black Swan.

Prepare yourself, ready, okay, here's the cover:
