The Eternal Ones – Synopsis Source
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.
All You Desire – Synopsis Source
With Beau’s life at stake, will Haven have to forsake Iain for good? Find out in the stunning sequel to The Eternal Ones.
Haven Moore would like to believe that Adam Rosier and his sinister Ouroboros Society are a distant memory. But then her best friend, Beau Decker, disappears, and a cabal of women known as the Horae claim that Adam is responsible. The Horae have spent centuries scheming to destroy Adam. They tell Haven that she alone holds the clue to Beau’s disappearance–and they’ll help her only if she promises to lure Adam into their clutches. It’s a plan the Horae believe may save the world, and one Haven and Iain fear may destroy the happiness they’ve been chasing for two thousand years. Because when Haven gets closer to Adam, he proves more alluring than she ever anticipated.
WHY I WANT TO READ IT:
The idea of reincarnation has always been incredibly fascinating to me – the belief that our souls live on across multiple lifetimes, it brings a certain peace of mind knowing that there is something after this life as opposed to nothing. I don’t claim to have a perfect understanding of reincarnation or its mechanics, but I believe in the idea of the soul continuing on across many lifetimes. It was my own personal beliefs in the subject of reincarnation which made me curious about The Eternal Ones series by Kirsten Miller. I am deeply curious about Haven, who she is and who she was in her past lives and how those past lives have impacted her now. I deeply believe that our past actions will resonate upon our souls and have some sort of impact on our future lives, so I am curious as to whether or not this idea comes to play through this series.
