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: I read this one awhile ago and I'm not exactly sure how well I remember it. I'll try my best to give you guys a good accurate review though. Personally I really quite enjoyed this book. It was a different twist on the whole paranormal thingy. For me when I think of paranormal books I think of vampires, ghosts, faeries and stuff like that. This is kind of ghosty, but more of the whole past life stuff more. It was interesting story, that was quite unique. I liked it because it wasn't the stereo typical story. I have read over and over again the same type of books with the same type of story line about the same type of thing. Personally I thought this was kind of a refreshing book it read. I know that some complain about it lacking in the romance departement, but I personally needed a break from all that stuff and I liked that it wasn't as heavy on the romance and focused a lot on the mystery plot developement.

Summary: Love ties them together. Death can't tear them apart.

Best. Birthday. Ever. At least, it was supposed to be. With Logan's band playing a critical gig and Aura's plans for an intimate after-party, Aura knows it will be the most memorable night of her boyfriend's life. She never thought it would be his last.
Logan's sudden death leaves Aura devastated. He's gone.
Well, sort of.
Like everyone born after the Shift, Aura can see and hear ghosts. This mysterious ability has always been annoying, and Aura had wanted nothing more than to figure out why the Shift happened so she can undo it. But not with Logan's violet-hued spirit still hanging around. Because dead Logan is almost as real as ever. Almost.
It doesn't help that Aura's new friend Zachary is so understanding—and so very alive. His support means more to Aura than she cares to admit.
As Aura's relationships with the dead and the living grow ever complicated, so do her feelings for Logan and Zachary. Each holds a piece of Aura's heart...and clues to the secret of the Shift
Review: I actually am not sure that I can give you all a good acurate review. I didn't actually do a good job reading this book. I started it and then got kind of bored with it. I don't really know why, but I didn't like it nearly as much as the other paranormal books out there. After a few days I came back and rushed through it. Since I did this I cannot be sure if other people would like it or not. My personal opinion would be that it wasn't worth it. I got a hardcover and it was expensive! But anyway, I don't really think that it measures up to some of the other books out there. It was good, but not good enough to really stand out.

Rating: ? If I had to it would be a C-
