Haven Moore has always known she's different: there are the talents that can't be explained; the knowledge of places she's never been; and, then there are the visions that overwhelm her - terrifying visions of a life that ended tragically two decades earlier and more than a thousand miles away in New York City. The citizens of Haven's rural, highly religious community, believe that she's been possessed by a demon. But this is no demon: it's reincarnation. Haven journeys all the way to Manhattan in search of clues about her past life and a decades-old murder. One wrong move could lead her into the clutches of the sinister villain at the center of a conspiracy much larger than she could have ever imagined. But if she makes the right choices, Haven will find the answers she's been seeking her entire life. This is an epic and thrilling romance set in the snake-handling churches of Appalachia, the dusty ruins of ancient Rome, and the grand mansions of Manhattan. The Eternal Ones tells the story of the first battle in a war between undying love and eternal evil.
Tales of soul mates destined to be together are pretty much ten a penny, yet Kirsten’s novel takes the reader on an almost Shakespearian Tragedy story arc that delved into the emotional aspect of the leading lady and man. It’s almost poetic and whilst the characters didn’t grab me, the potential alongside the writing style, more than made up for their flaws. This tale probably won’t appeal to everyone but if you want a story where emotional conflict wars against powerful enemies and tender hooks keep you drawn, then this may well be the book for you.
