Hey everyone! I’m so excited to be a part of Vicky Savage’s blog tour for her Transcender Trilogy (Out now)! For my blog tour stop, I have a guest post from Vicky with her Dream Movie Cast. First, here’s some more information about the Transcender Trilogy:
TRANSCENDER: First-Timer (Book one)
Suddenly plucked from her quiet Connecticut life and dropped into a post-disaster parallel world where most of the earth’s population resides in enormous domes, eighteen year old Jaden Beckett lands in the middle of a kidnapping—her own!
Undercover Agent Ralston of the Inter-Universal Guidance Agency helps Jaden escape from her captors and promises to return her home as soon as he can arrange it. But he conceals from her the fact that she is really a Transcender, capable of traveling among alternate worlds at will. While waiting for passage home, Jaden assumes her parallel identity as a princess in the nation of Domerica. She discovers her mother is alive in this world—a miracle she never dreamed possible. But perhaps even more compelling is her blossoming, breathtaking romance with Ryder Blackthorn, her once and future soul mate.
When it comes time for Jaden to leave, she flatly refuses. IUGA claims the welfare of the entire galaxy depends upon her timely return. Jaden contends that, in this case, eternal love trumps destiny. Who will prevail?

Jaden Beckett makes the journey once again from her home in Connecticut to the nation of Domerica on an alternate earth. The Inter-Universal Guidance Agency has granted her thirty days within which to choose her ultimate destiny. She may remain in Domerica, return to Connecticut, or join the other Transcenders in Arumel.
On her arrival, Jaden finds that all is not perfect in paradise. Her mother, Queen Eleanor, is ill and grows frailer with each passing day. Her scheming uncle has moved into the palace and assumed the role of Lord High Steward of the land. But even more troubling are events that took place in Jaden’s absence which have caused her to question the depth of her fiancé’s love.
All the while, Jaden’s friendship with a handsome, young Transcender from Arumel deepens. He teaches her how to use her astonishing gift to travel to exotic parallel worlds and introduces her to others in the Transcender community.
When the time draws near for Jaden’s final decision, her choice is anything but simple.

Jaden Beckett has a secret unknown to those in her adopted homeland of Domerica: she is a Transcender, capable of traveling among parallel worlds at will. When the powerful Inter-Universal Guidance Agency’s sophisticated computer models predict that Jaden will eventually cause the downfall of that agency, IUGA decides to destroy her first. In order to save herself, her family, and the man she loves, Jaden must fake her own death and leave Domerica for good. The plan seems sound, but on the day of IUGA’s attack, things go terribly wrong.
Heartsick and alone, Jaden ventures to Arumel, a progressive nation on an alternate earth, where Transcenders conduct valuable inter-universal research. Just when she thinks she’s found a safe, new life, IUGA makes its presence known. This time, Jaden is determined not to be driven away. She will fight to discover her place in the multiverse, the true meaning of destiny, and the keys to the mystery of eternal love.

And now here’s Vicky’s Dream Movie Cast for the Transcender Trilogy! Hope you guys enjoy!
It’s so fun to think about what it would be like to have your books made into movies. Of course, I believe the Transcender Trilogy would make an exciting action-packed movie series ( I may be biased), and I’ve come up with my dream cast of actors to play the major and some minor roles:
JADEN BECKETT, played by Spencer Locke:
Regal enough to be a princess, but gutsy enough to carry the martial arts and fencing scenes, Spencer Locke definitely has what it takes to be a convincing Jaden! Plus check out the green eyes.
RYDER BLACKTHORN, played by Diego Boneta:
Ryder was unquestionably the most difficult actor to settle on because I had a very strong notion of what he looked like. Although his hair is lighter and the eyes darker, Diego Boneta seems to embody the gorgeous, strong, and sensitive character of Ryder Blackthorn.
AGENT CONSTANTINE RALSTON, played by Bill Nighy:
Bill Nighy has Ralston’s professorial manner, glasses, and thinning, sandy hair. I love everything I’ve ever seen this guy in. He’s a wonderful actor and would make a perfect Ralston.
ASHER STEELE, played by Alex Pettyfer:
I loved Alex Pettyfer in I Am Number Four, and actually had him in mind when I wrote the Asher character. Who could be better, or more swoon-worthy?
ELEANOR BECKETT/QUEEN ELEANOR, played by Sela Ward:
Elegant and beautiful, Sela Ward is certainly queen-material. As Jaden’s mother, this lovely lady would be a home run.
JOHN BECKETT/GOVERNOR BECKETT, played by Hugh Jackman:
Looks great with or without the beard. Handsome Hugh Jackman would make an ideal dad/father for Jaden—strong, sensitive, and wise. Love to see him riding a horse and fighting off the bad guys!
And for the Minor Roles:
ERICA HORNSBY, played by Chloe Bridges:
Dark and exotic enough.
LIV WALLACE, played by Ashley Benson:
Looks exactly how I pictured her!
EVE, played by Chloe Moretz:
Who else but Hit Girl?
URICK, played by Chris Hemsworth:
I can dream, can’t I? Yum.
Do you have picks or your own? Did I leave out one of your favorite characters? If so, let me know and I’ll fill in the blanks!
Vicky Savage grew up gazing upon the beauty of the Wasatch Mountain Range right outside her family’s kitchen window. She thought the Rocky Mountains would always own her heart, until she moved to sunny Florida for law school and instantly fell in love with the ocean. Her passion for new adventures and exotic locales led her on a circuitous path to writing science fiction/fantasy about strange new worlds and parallel universes. Although she has lived in seven different states and London, England, the siren call of the ocean always brings her back to her beloved Florida, where she currently lives with her husband, son, and two dogs.

Mere: This looks awesome! thanks for being part of the blog tour! And the cast is picture perfect. I wish it were being made! <3
Thanks for allowing me to participate! I had so much fun! <3
Soo, I maybe just read First Timer in a day( and maybe stayed up to 3 AM finishing it). It was ridiculously addicting!! I can’t wait to start the next book! I love this fan casting, despite picturing a few people differently. Thanks for the fun post!
Woohoo! I added it to my TBR!! :)
I love this cast list! These are such excellent picks. I think the Liv pick is my favorite though. So appropriate!
I haven’t read the books and even I think the cast list is perfect! :)
Richard Bach wrote about parallel dimensions and they’ve always fascinated me. Just think how many decisions we make in a single day and how many alternate worlds result from those decisions – in ONE day. It would take more than one lifetime to visit all the worlds a person created within his or her single lifetime. This series is so very compelling for these reasons and so many more. The idea of being able to visit the worlds where you didn’t make that decision you regret the most or where your dead grandmother is still alive is wondrous.
I 100% agree with everything you said! I’m totally fascinated by parallel universes! So many “What if?” scenarios to explore!
