Book description from Goodreads:

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:

Haven is accused that she had a demon inside her because she faints, talks about people she's never met and has visions. Her father died in an car accident, he believed she was a reincarnation of someone else long ago. She now lives with her grandmother, well more less GrandMoster, and mother. Haven hasn't faited nor had visions about Ethan since her father died, until few months before she is suppose to leave to New York. Her grandmother cancels that and Haven is later on home lock down pretty much. Though she feels drawn to New York and knows she must go there one way or another.

Haven annoyed me to death. The first 150 pages is all about how Haven has a demon and she is forced to go to church every Sunday and her grandmother is obnoxious, all it talks about is religion the whole time until Haven leaves for New York.

Then! The next problem. Haven. She has trust issues horribly! She finds Iain, says she loves him blah blah blah and follows him trys to come up with an excuse to leave him, when he seriously built her old house that they died in and remembered every single thing that sit in the house when she lived in it. Yet, she still refuses to trust him. Now Iain did lie some so I could understand why she had to see what he was up to, but he was trying to protect her from someone that has been after them for along time. Haven had trust issues threw the whole book up until the last 5 pages.

I enjoyed this book somewhat, I hope the next one is better. The next book is called All You Desire and comes out August 9th.

My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars.

Sexual Content: Minor
Cursing: Mild, most likely over 100 words though
Violence: None
There was use of drugs but not between the main character's.

This is the Paperback cover, I really like the paperback better then the hardcover one! I'll be getting the Paperback when it comes out in, July 5Th.


  1. It's a shame you didn't like it! I'm going to add it to my wishlist anyway as I think it sounds interesting but I'm going to wait for the paperback cover as I think it's nicer too. :)

  2. I can finally comment on blogger! :D Dumb thing!
    I really think the second will be better. but I may just have high hopes. I just got the paperback in it the other day. I don't like everyone changing the covers to the books latley but I think they did a good choice on changing this ones!

  3. This is a really great book! I have read the first 2 now and am holding out for the third, I really do recommend it!
