Review: The Eternal Ones by Kristen Miller

Book: The Eternal Ones by Kristen Miller
Genre: SF-ish
Rating: B+
For: ARC sent for review
From: Publisher

This book makes it no secret that it's about reincarnation, which is quite an interesting topic. In this story, Haven keeps having visions of what they (her, her friends, and her dad) decide must be memories of a former life. However, some people in her town just think she's pocessed with an evil spirit. All she wants to do is run away to New York and try to make sense of some of the things she is feeling and seeing.

Once she gets there, things get complicated. It swings back and forth constantly whether the guy she finds there, (and the one she just happens to be remembering) is a good guy or a bad guy. At first this kept the plot going, but then it just started to make me crazy frustrated!

I was a little disappointed this wasn't more of a love story. There wasn't much relationship building because they supposedly knew each other for lifetimes before. Instead, it turns out to be a mystery with Haven trying to solve what happened to her in previous lives and trying to make sure it didn't happen again, and where this guy she meets falls into the whole mix.

That being said, I totally enjoyed the page turning experience that it was. I, along with Haven, was anxious to find out the truth, and to see how it all ended.

Bottom line: It was fun and well worth the reading time.

  1. I want to read this one, but I think I'll make sure to get it from the library!

  2. Thanks for this review. I have been debating on whether to read this, and I really like what you had to say, so I will give it a try.

  3. Enjoyed your review! I agree that Haven and Iain came together too easily and I would have liked Haven at least to need more wooing.

    Thanks for including a link to my review! :-)
