The Eternal Ones
One day, the sight of notorious playboy Iain Morrow on television brings Haven to her knees. Haven flees to New York City to find Iain ...more
I know it gets said a lot, but Haven might be one of the stupidest and most frustrating young adult heroines I've ever encountered. The entire second half of the book consisted of:
1. Haven spends time with Ethan, thinking about how very pretty he is, ...more
i kinda hated it. and i'm trying to decide how negative i want to be with this commentary, because if i give into my urges, it will be a non-stop rant. and i will straight up admit that part of this comes because i love the kiki strike books so very, very much and as such i have certain expectations of miller. which did not even come close to being met with this one. meaning that if this were written by someone else, it would probably garner maybe one star more. bu ...more
The issue with stories like these is that because of this supposed eternal connection of souls, there is no ...more
For as long as Haven can remember she has loved a boy called Ethan. When she was just a child Haven would often speak about having to find Ethan Evans in New York City, and she would refer to herself as Constance Whitman. Haven scared her parents by having ‘fainting spells’ and waking with clear memories of another life in New York City and the love of a man named Ethan.
In her small Tennessee bible-belt town of Snope City Haven qu ...more
There were two things that really ate at me. The writing and the characters.

This book tested my patience in so many levels. I was constantly swinging between loving it and hating it, and it was not until the end that I realised it was all so very worth it. To say it's an engaging book is an understatement. The Eternal Ones will invoke readers to feel, think and try to guess all sorts of things.
Haven Moore is a protagonist I have not settled my mind about. She is like a swinging pendulum, constantly undecided and going back and forth ...more
Which lasted about 61 pages. I. just. can't. go. on....
First off, I'm not a big fan of the 3rd person POV--especially with YA; and unless the author is a very talented writer, the 3rd person perspective ends up making it sound like a narration from a screenplay.
Miller is case-in-point. There were about 5 pages covering 2 short chapters where there w ...more
Seriously, I can't really even describe why I dislike this book so much. The premise could have been really awesome, I find past lives and reincarnation really interesting. It was so so so poorly written and the plot pretty much never went anywhere. Everytime there was a "twist" (I'm not stupid, I can see whats coming!) I had to roll my eyes. The main character goes back and forth and back and forth and back and forth so many damn times that I wanted to ...more
The writing was painfully amateurish. The dialogue was annoying and unrealistic, filled with several exclamation marks for emphasis! The main character was colorless and lifeless. The side characters were caricatures and seemed really...stupid. I don't mean that as an insult, I literally mean they ...more
All the most powerful emotions come from chaos —fear, anger, love— especially love. Love is chaos itself. Think about it! Love makes no sense. It shakes you up and spins you around. And then, eventually, it falls apart. - Adam Rosier
The basic idea behind The Eternal Ones is what would you do for your soul mate? What would you sacrifice? How much would you be willing to believe? It is a romance/ murder mystery mixed with reincarnation. The story runs in two-time frames. Haven Moore and Iian Morr...more
Quick & Dirty: This was a good read filled with epic romance, a good mystery, and fun characters. It was a little slow at first, but it picked up nicely towards the middle.
Opening Sentence: Haven was back.
Haven Moore lives in a small town called Snope City, Tennessee. She has lived there her whole life, but she has always felt that she lived another life. She has had visions ever since she was a little girl of a woman named Constance. Constanc ...more
I will state up front that this book will not be for everyone. It reminded me most of Nina Malkin’s SWOON, with its gorgeous writing, mystical mysteries, and a romance so all-consuming it makes you feel like you’re swimming underwater with no chance to come up for air. There is a certain level of suspension of disbeli ...more
Haven has always been an outcast in her little town of Snope City. Her best friend, Beau, is the only one to stick by her when everyone else in town thinks she is strange, or worse yet, possessed by a demon. Since she was a little girl, she has had visions of a past there is no way she should know about. She sees New York City almost 100 years ago, herself as a blonde named Constance, and a man named Ethan whom she knows is her soul mate.
After the ...more
In a simple summary, there's a society in which deals with people who've lived (and loved) in past lives. I believe the main girl, Haven, finds out that she is in fact one of these people. A boy named Iain becomes involved and by the end of the book, the society and its concept are all ...more
