Haven Moore has always lived in the tiny town of Snope City, Tennessee. But for as long as she can remember, Haven has experienced visions of a past life as a girl named Constance, whose love for a boy called Ethan ended in a fiery tragedy. 

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 and there, she is swept up in an epic love affair that feels both deeply fated and terribly dangerous. Is Iain her beloved Ethan? Or is he her murderer in a past life? Haven asks the members of the powerful and mysterious Ouroboros Society to help her unlock the mysteries of reincarnation and discover the secrets hidden in her past lives, and loves, before all is lost and the cycle begins again. But what is the Ouroboros Society? And how can Haven know who to trust?

Review: 

Three quarters of the way into The Eternal Ones, I decided I needed a break. My plan was to read a different (a.k.a. better) book for a while then return to Miller’s novel at a later point in time.  After finishing the “break” book, however, I found myself starting another new book rather than going back to The Eternal Ones. When that second book was over, I started yet another.

A couple of weeks went by. One evening I happened to glance at my nightstand and was surprised to see The Eternal Ones – I’d forgotten all about it. I picked it up, figuring I should probably finish it at last, but then realized I had absolutely no desire to read any more of it. In fact, I had to make an effort to remember what it was even about.

In fairness to the author, part of my dislike for this book could be attributed to general lack of interest in novels about reincarnation. I don’t really buy into the idea of soul mates, either, which didn’t help matters. Other reasons for my unenthusiastic response include annoying characters and an overly sensational plot.

I don’t have much more to say about this book, other than: Skip it.
