What if love refused to die?
Haven Moore can’t control her visions of a past with a boy called Ethan, and a life in New York that ended in fiery tragedy. In our present, she designs beautiful dresses for her classmates with her best friend Beau. Dressmaking keeps her sane, since she lives with her widowed and heartbroken mother in her tyrannical grandmother’s house in Snope City, a tiny town in Tennessee. Then an impossible group of coincidences conspire to force her to flee to New York, to discover who she is, and who she was.
In New York, Haven meets Iain Morrow and is swept into an epic love affair that feels both deeply fated and terribly dangerous. Iain is suspected of murdering a rock star and Haven wonders, could he have murdered her in a past life? She visits the Ouroboros Society and discovers a murky world of reincarnation that stretches across millennia. Haven must discover the secrets hidden in her past lives, and loves¸ before all is lost and the cycle begins again.
I have been eagerly anticipating the release of The Eternal Ones and ever since I got it, I have been waiting for the moment where I could delve into this book uninterrupted. Boy, am I sure glad I waited because once I started reading, I couldn't put this book down. It was so unbelievably amazing and I loved everything about it!
Haven is an unbelievably strong main character. She put up with the whole town and even her own grandmother thinking she was possessed by the devil. She never let them see how much they were getting to her and for that, I commend her. When she escapes to New York to find the Ethan that she has visions about, Haven finds Iain Morrow, the newly reincarnated Ethan. She soon falls in love with him once more, but knows that some things don't quite add up with him. Whenever she thinks she can trust him, someone or something will make her doubt him again. Iain is a bit of a question mark throughout the whole story and kept me guessing as to what kind of person he truly was.
The plot for The Eternal Ones was original and kept me glued to the pages. I never knew who to trust or what to believe. I loved Kirsten Miller's take on reincarnation and I still find myself thinking about it long after i've finished the book.
Thank goodness I chose to read this book on a sick day, as I don't think I could have put it down otherwise! Once I started reading, nothing could have kept me away from the pages. The ending satisfied me, while at the same time leaving it open for a sequel. If you don't have The Eternal Ones on your TBR shelf, I recommend getting this book, stat! You won't be disappointed!
