Review: The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller

Young Adult Paranormal Romance

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.

My Review

Haven Moore has always had visions of a life where she was named Constance, who was in love with a boy named Ethan. Her grandmother has everyone convinced that Haven is crazy and makes her see Doctor Tidmore ( not sure of the spelling since it was an audio book) who also happens to be the preacher at her church. Haven is so sure that this previous life is very real and that Ethan may be in New York. With some new information from her late father, Haven finally has the push she needs to find some answers. She meets Iain Morrow and her world is turned upside down. 

The Eternal One's was a crazy whirlwind and will keep you guessing from beginning to end. You don't know who to trust and who to hate. Haven is so strong and doesn't back down from a challenge. I'm so glad that she goes with her gut and questions things instead of being one of those girls that believes the dude with ever fiber of her being. This made her character extremely believable. Her best friend Beau is awesome and is usually the voice of reason. I likes Iain's character but I wish there was more of him in the book. The book was full of action, suspense and romance that kept me so enthralled that I was bummed whenever I had to press pause. I was midway through when I found out that this was part of a series. I'm very excited with this news. That ending was phenomenal and I will definitely be reading the next one. I'm hoping the next one will be just as exhilarating as this one, if not more.
