REVIEW: The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller
Haven Moore is more than meets the eye. She looks seventeen, but she has actually been reincarnated so many times that she has lived for over three thousand years. As a child, Haven had visions of a life as a woman named Constance. Only when the visions return at the age of seventeen when evidence surfaces does Haven realise that Constance was her in a past life. Drawn to famous movie star/ billionaire, Iain Morrow, Haven enters a world where your past lives DO come back to haunt you. Can Haven escape her pre-lived fate in time?
I really loved this book. I thoroughly enjoyed Miller's ideas on reincarnation and spin on an age -old love story.
The seeds for the plot were scattered throughout the book, only to bloom later on surprising you with the twists and turns the book took.
I really appreciated the names that Miller had chosen being both interesting and reflecting some of the characters personalities; Imogene Snively being the pompous old lady that was portrayed throughout the book. I really liked the characters, I thought that they were more than you first think and I really enjoyed the fact that they kept you on your toes.
The writing style was relaxed and made you feel comfortable, easy to read. The Eternal Ones keeps you eternally guessing and I would enthusiastically recommend it for any girl aged 13 - 16.
