Why is Haven so concerned about what her grandmother says to her? Why can’t she just gain the courage to do what she wants? Jacque Because in the south, family is everything and the elders are supposed to represent wisdom and is a figure of high esteem and respect. I say this, not …more Because in the south, family is everything and the elders are supposed to represent wisdom and is a figure of high esteem and respect.
I say this, not only being a southerner but also because Kirsten Miller is posing Haven’s family as a traditional southern family, complete with a white picket fence. And though they do allow people to know about Haven, the reason being is to have pity points.
In traditional southern culture, nothing got past that white picket fence and everything was perfect as far as the neighbors could tell. But Haven’s situation was too public and so her grandmother goes to religious professionals so the neighbors know something is being done about Haven and that whether or not Haven get’s better, she herself as a good Christian woman tried and should be pitied for it.

Hindus do it better. Wait, is this about someone who comes back as an animal but remembers being human? That would be shiny. It’s about a girl who comes back as another girl and is in love with the same guy. Look, can I go back to my sci-fi now? But I have true love!
The Eternal Ones (Eternal Ones, #1) by Kirsten Miller
And a gay best friend! Not tha It helps if you imagine this reading experience as a kind of conversation. Not that the gay best friend isn’t interesting, but And a rabidly intolerant Southern town! I don’t have to particularly like the South to dislike that.
Kriwten can you resist my blatant stereotypes? Of course all Southern towns are miniature theocracies where anyone who doesn’t fit the mold is persecuted. Remind me to introduce you to a friend of mine from Georgia one of these days. How much eternoe it do we get to see? Eternoz would rather count the brushstrokes on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.
Can we go back there? Now hurry up and become emotionally invested in my main character. This would be the girl who changes her own opinion based solely on what she’s heard most recently from other people? Who lets herself get steamrollered by a guy because he’s good looking and she thinks she kdisten have been in love with him in past lives? Who has sex with him after knowing him for only a few days?
Don’t you love her? And he’s in love with the main character! And she thinks he’s amazinglygorgeousgoodinbedthebee’sknees. And I don’t trust her opinions at all.
But here’s the end. Oh good, he’s dead. My main complaint with this book? She flip-flopped so much it was unbelievable; she couldn’t make up her mind at all and was all too eager to let other people make it up for her. In short, she was weak-willed and annoying, and I would rather not read about her again. However, the book itself was fine, I suppose. Not stellar, but average for today’s YA market.
View all 13 comments. May 19, Chelsea rated it did not like it Shelves: The PR firm that handled this title did one hell of a job, believe me. I had heard all kinds of good things about this one, and was resigned to waiting for paperback to come out, when a mjller lent it to my mother, who I promptly stole it from.
I know it gets said a lot, but Haven might be one of miiller stupidest and most frustrating young adult heroines I’ve ever encountered. The entire second half of the book consisted of: Haven spends time with Ethan, thinking about how very pretty he is, The PR killer that handled this title did one hell of a job, believe me. Kfisten spends eternoos with Ethan, thinking about how very pretty he is, and how he would never do anything bad to her, ever ever ever.
Haven talks to anyone other than Ethan, all of whom are trying to convince her that he’s evil and might be trying to kill her. Haven now thinks Ethan is evil and might be trying to kill her.
Haven sees Ethan again, is reminded of just how pretty he is, and after he tells her he would never hurt her, she is again convinced that he eetrnos never ever ever hurt her.
Haven talks to someone who isn’t Ethan. Now she thinks he’s conspiring against her again. She literally takes the side of the last person she spoke to. Her complete lack of independence and agency was almost offensive. But no worries, folks. There’s going to be a sequel! View all 6 comments. View all 4 comments. Aug 09, Rosanne rated it liked it. This book centers on Haven Moore, a 16 year old girl from East Tennessee and her eternal via reincarnation love affair.
Throw in some bad guys who are after Haven and her man, and you have your story. It is just not convincing and it lacks emotional punch. She seems to have no issue with the fact that she lost her virginity to a person who has repeatedly lied to her, among other things.
She repeatedly puts him in incredibly dangerous situations, and doesn’t seem too bothered about that. It is hard to craft a great story where the romance is a central focus when the two main characters are so utterly unappealing. I think this story would have worked better if Haven were an adult, one of the major flaws in this book is that at sixteen, she tries to act like she is thirty. The mysterious society that is after these two is actually quite compelling and Miller does a good job of keeping the mystery going, you are never really rkisten who is a danger to Haven and who is a friend.
View all 9 comments. Nov 05, Ceilidh rated it it was ok. I am very picky about my romances, especially when it comes to the notorious minefield that YA romances has become. Reincarnation as a central theme in a story is an idea with fantastic potential but said potential can eteenos be mishandled very easily.
While Miller tries to throw a few red herrings and speed bumps in the way of their relationship, they eternoos no real depth to the characters and actually served to make me dislike the couple more and more as the story progressed.
