Book 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.

Media Reviews

"Starred Review. The romantic ardor is touching, with minimal allusions to sex. The story allows for a healthy dose of vicarious living through every teen girl's fantasy to run away to the big city full of exciting adventures while being caught up in the battle of good vs. evil. Grades 8+." - School Library Journal

"Starred Review. Miller delivers a smart and sinister tale of romance and destiny that…elevates the supernatural romance well beyond typical fare." - Publishers Weekly

"Miller is adept at humorous description. Her keen eye for detail and Haven’s bold maneuvers keep the tale humming along." - Kirkus

"If you are looking for a novel filled with mystery, suspense, intrigue, and romance, look no further." - VOYA

"The plot alternates a few too many times between Haven hating or forgiving her lives' loves, but fans of paranormal romances likely won't mind. Grades 8-11." - Booklist

Author Information

Kirsten Miller Author Biography

Kirsten Miller (born 1973) works in advertising in New York City and is the author of the Kiki Strike series and The Eternal Ones. In 2001, the front lawn of a Manhattan nursing home collapsed to reveal an underground room, giving Miller the idea for the first book of the Kiki Strike series, set in the underground tunnels and rooms beneath the city. She created Kiki Strike and the Irregulars (named after Sherlock Holmes' Baker Street Irregulars) to explore these secret passageways. Kirsten is also co-author of a young adult novel, Nightmares! with Jason Segel.
