    1. It helps if you imagine this reading experience as a kind of conversation.Book: Hey, look, reincarnation!Me: Meh. Seen it. Hindus do it better. Wait, is this about someone who comes back as an animal but remembers being human? That would be shiny.Book: . It's about a girl who comes back as another girl and is in love with the same guy.Me: Blech.Book: But LURVE! TWOO LURVE THRU TEH AGEZ!Me: Look, can I go back to my sci-fi now?Book: But I have true love! And a gay best friend!Me: Not that the gay [...]


    2. The PR firm that handled this title did one hell of a job, believe me. I had heard all kinds of good things about this one, and was resigned to waiting for paperback to come out, when a coworker lent it to my mother, who I promptly stole it from.Ugh.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, [...]


    3. my disappointment of the year. 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 [...]


    4. I’m starting to think that it is pretty much impossible to do these eternal love stories really well. I’ll probably keep looking for one though, because I think the idea is really wonderful. This book centers on Haven Moore, a 16 year old girl from East Tennessee and her eternal (via reincarnation) love affair. Throw in some bad guys who are after Haven and her man, and you have your story.The issue with stories like these is that because of this supposed eternal connection of souls, there i [...]


    5. I am very picky about my romances, especially when it comes to the notorious minefield that YA romances has become. With the paranormal YA genre populated with instant love, jerkiness masquerading as love, tragic live with no consequences, obsessive love and stalking as love, it’s all become a little depressing. With “The Eternal Ones” we have an emphasis on reincarnation with romance, something that was touched upon with disastrous incompetence by Lauren Kate in “Fallen.” When I was w [...]


    6. ***Contains some spoilers from the first chapters*** Through all her childhood Haven Moore had flashbacks to earlier lives as different persons – that of Constance Whitman, a woman living and dying in the New York of the 1920s in particular. Her parents believed her, because a small child could not possibly have invented so many facts about buildings, circumstances and persons. After her father’s tragic death things started to look different, though: Haven’s mother sank into depression, to [...]


    7. Recipe for The enternal ones1. Create a base for this concoction we’re making : Idea of reincarnation, soul mates and love never forgotten always makes for a yummy backdrop. Too bad there’s an eerily similar idea out there already (My name is memory by Ann Brashares)—but who cares, no one would notice as they lap this book up.2. Mould one heroine: Do remember to make her incredibly silly, vapid and fickle; make her as unbearable and unlikable as you can. Ooh and make her sew clothes. How r [...]


    8. If you’re looking for a fresh, exciting new read, then this book is for you! With her tale of love across the ages, Kirsten Miller has turned the paranormal romance genre on it’s head and delivered a completely unique tale, one which I can pretty much guarantee will keep you enthralled right until the last page. The Eternal Ones is the first book in an exciting new Young Adult series, and I have to say, I can‘t wait to get my hands on the sequel! I’ve always been interested in themes of [...]



    9. ‘The Eternal Ones’ is Kirsten Miller’s first stand-alone YA novel.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 Cit [...]


    10. Reviewed @ Girls Without a Bookshelf.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 [...]


    11. Έχετε βρεθεί ποτέ σε κάποιο μέρος και να έχει γεννηθεί μέσα σας η εντύπωση πως δεν είναι η πρώτη φορά που πατάτε το πόδι σας εκεί, που τα πάντα γύρω σας έχουν κάτι το γνώριμο; Έχετε συναντήσει ποτέ κάποιον άνθρωπο και η οικειότητα ή ο φόβος που σας εμπνέει να είναι τόσο άμεσος [...]


    12. Before I begin my review, I’d like to talk about reading lest I come over as pretentious in my thoughts and observations about the books I read. Before I started taking classes that dealt with analyzing literature, I used to be able to jump into a book and surf the plot to the finish without any other thought than my enjoyment of it. I read the story but I didn’t read what the characters said and did beyond their presence in the book. To elaborate, I was entirely unaware of the stories that [...]


    13. I’ve been excited to read this book for forever and that’s why it was even more disappointing when I couldn’t get into it—and was sorely tempted to throw it across the room as I got farther and farther into it. I know a lot of people have really enjoyed this book, but I am not one of them. I got nearly 200 pages in, cut somewhere in the back and basically got the whole story.There were two things that really ate at me. The writing and the characters.The writing:One of the first things th [...]


    14. 4.5/5Haven Moore creció teniendo esas visiones de una vida pasada, a lo largo de los años, su vida se ha complicado por ese "don" que posee de recordar lo que vivió en otros tiempos. Su amor del pasado, Ethan, ha reaparecido y ella tiene que encontrarlo, tiene que descubrir lo que Constance desea que Heven sepa en esta vida, así que sin nada que la detenga en su pequeña ciudad, se embarca en un viaje lleno de sinsabores, de eventos frustrados, situaciones extrañas y muchas malas influencia [...]


    15. I had been waiting for over a year for our library to order this book so it was with much anticipation to finally be able to delve into this mystery.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 was [...]


    16. If this book had a face, I would punch it. 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 [...]



    17. Tenía bajas expectativas de este libro por todo lo que decían acerca de el, pero la verdad es que me gustó bastante, la historia esta bien y es atrayente, aunque lo que le baja puntos es Haven. Es de las chicas másh, no se si realmente era crédula o qué, pero no creo que nadie más que solo ella haya caído en todas las cosas que le decían acerca de Iain, y si no fuera por ella mi puntuación hubiera sido mil veces mejor. Su reencuentro no era lo que yo esperaba, fue muy se como describir [...]


    18. I received an advance copy of this so understand that it is not out for mass consumption yet. I really was hoping for this one b/c it would be a good alternative for all the vamp/were/fairy stuff out there in YA but alasy. The main character is one of the stupidest girls in literature. I have not been so insulted by the ignorance of a character in a very, very long time. Saying Haven is too stupid to live is being polite b/c in the end I found myself hoping that the 'Demon of Chaos' (for lack of [...]


    19. What I found most interesting about my read-through of THE ETERNAL ONES was that the romance wasn’t the strongest point at all; in fact, I thought it was kind of weak. We literally know nothing about Ethan/Iain, except that they loved Haven in a past life… hardly any discernible character traits, and most of the plot you’re split by the possibility that Iain is a cold blooded killer. (Hardly soul mate material.) And I couldn’t find any reason for them to be together at all… even their [...]


    20. Terrible. Reading this book was very frustrating because I could see it had potential to be a great book. The idea of incarnation and love that spans lifetimes was good, but the execution was so awful.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 reallyupid. I don't mean that as an insult, I literally mean they did n [...]


    21. 2.5 estrellas.¿Saben cuántas veces intenté leer este libro? como más de 10. Lo juro. Siempre que abría el libro me parecía súper aburrido. Cuando lo busqué y cuando al fin lo encontré (en la FIL 2014) me pareció interesante pero no sé por qué no estaba preparada jaja pero ya me parecía que llevaba bastante tiempo en mi librero pues esta vez sí me decidí a leerlo y fue un poco decepcionante. El principio es muy flojo, después se vuelve interesante pero no lo suficiente y el final [...]


    22. DNF at 33%I give up. This is just terrible. And it's apparent that Emma Galvin will never be one of my favorite narrators.


    23. Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales.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.The Review: 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 [...]


    24. So I’ve mentioned this before about a hundred times but I am a huge sucker for romance in novels so from simply reading the blurb of The Eternal Ones I was sure I’d fall in love with it I mean the whole premise of eternal love and searching every lifetime for your soulmate super duper romantic. Alas however romance was seriously lacking, I mean there was a bit but not much at all, the story was more of a mystery which worked quite well as it had me double guessing myself a couple of times, I [...]


    25. This book was promising in the beginning. Started out with a strong likable main character named Haven and her best friend Beau. I liked that no matter what Haven went through, she was still smart and acted responsible. The relationship she had with Beau was very close knit. Then as Haven started having episodes of passing out and remembering a love she could not get a handle on, she decides to go to New York. She knows her love must be there. This is where things fall apart quickly. Haven becom [...]


    26. Haven Moore has always known she's different: there are the talents that can't be explained; the knowledge of places she's never been; and then there are the visions that overwhelm her - terrifying visions of a life that ended tragically two decades earlier and more than a thousand miles away in New York City. The citizens of Haven's rural, highly religious community, believe that she's been possessed by a demon. But this is no demon: it's reincarnation. Haven journeys all the way to Manhattan i [...]


    27. THE ETERNAL ONES is a “wow” of a novel. The story started a little shakily, but then I was captivated by the uniqueness, writing style, and romance that Kirsten Miller does so well.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 [...]


    28. Reviewed by Karin Librarian for TeensReadTooHaven 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 deat [...]
