by Kisten Miller

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.

Rating: A-
