Synopsis: What if love refused to die?
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.
My Review: This book pulled me in from the first sentence. The whole concept you see in the first chapter, Haven remembering bits and pieces of a past, is intriguing and I didn’t want to put the book down for fear of missing something!
Haven Moore leads a life in a town that sounds all too familiar, a life I yearned to break her out of myself. Life in a small town doesn’t seem easy to begin with, and even worse when you’re perceived as different, strange, or dangerous. I’ve been out of high school long enough to somewhat forget how mean teenagers can be to each other, so my heart was breaking as I read how Haven was treated.
In New York, the place Haven desperately wants to get to, Iain Morrow is a hot bad boy with a questionable reputation and a new girl on his arm every week. Both of their lives are changed forever when they meet, and you’re on the edge of your seat wondering if that’s good or bad. Haven finds herself on a journey of self discovery filled with danger, never knowing who to trust or where she should go next.
Part mystery, part love story, this is an interesting tale all around that keeps the reader wondering what’s going to happen next…Will history repeat itself? What is the truth about this past that Haven remembers? And how does it all fit together in her current life?
Read this book if: You liked Twilight, Hush Hush, or Fallen. I really enjoyed this book and I’m very excited for the sequel, I’ll be sure to get my hands on it as soon as I get the chance! I encourage any fan of YA fiction to read this book!
