The Eternal Ones (Review)
By Kristen Miller
On Sale: 8/31/2010
Summary: 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.
Review: In the Eternal Ones you’re thrown right into the plot with the first couple pages. It opens during one of Haven’s visions which she’s been having for as long as she can remember. From there you’re taken on a journey with Haven and her best friend Beau to get away from her evil grandmother, and her small town to find out what her visions are really about.
In the beginning of the book you spend plenty of time in her small ‘everyone one knows everyone’ town. It seems like many young adult books have settings just like this. Twilight, and Beautiful Creatures are just two. This is the only similarity Eternal Ones has to all these books. The plot is so different and unique.
I loved the size of The Eternal Ones; I prefer long books to short because I never want to give up the characters. Even after 416 pages I was sad for the book to end. I wanted to spend more time with these characters. Kristen Miller did a great job developing them and I felt like I personally knew all of them. It’s hard to let go of things you love.
Make sure you put the release date on your calendar. You don’t want to miss this story, especially if you love books with supernatural, romance, and mystery.
P.S. For the people that have already read the book (and the ones that will want to know when they finish it) there will be a sequel! Kristen Miller said she was almost done with it. I’m so excited!
