The Eternal Ones
by Kirsten Miller
Ever since she could speak, Haven Moore has known she needs to find Ethan, and that he’ll be in New York. The only problem is she doesn’t know who Ethan is and she’s never been to New York. Most of the small town where Haven has lived her whole life thinks she’s crazy, or worse – possessed by a demon. But Haven knows that her visions must mean something, so she sets off to find some answers. What follows is a dark and exciting adventure filled with mystery and romance.
The Eternal Ones is a fresh and unique offering in the heavily saturated YA paranormal romance genre. Haven is a likable protagonist, and her best friend Beau is a charismatic character who provides a good sounding board and support system for Haven as she tries to navigate the murky waters of her past life. Haven’s history is doled out in little pieces, keeping the reader guessing along with her as she tries to uncover the truth about who Ethan is and what happened in her past. I was never sure who was telling the truth and who was really behind the troubles in Haven’s past (and present). The story contains just the right mix of adventure and romance making it a great read for fans of both genres. And while the ending nicely tied up most of the plot points, there are still enough unanswered questions to allow for an exciting sequel.
I thoroughly enjoyed The Eternal Ones and was impressed with its original concept. I really hope there will be more stories about Constance and Ethan.
