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.
I loved the characters in this book. It starts with a mystery and the angst of being a young woman and continues to adventure and romance. She's a young woman who struggles with following her head and her heart, trying to figure out the world and relationships. Narration is great. I'd love to have the story continue into another book!
Though the narrator does a wonderful job portraying the main character and voicing the various accents, the girl drives me crazy. She is just another Bella, a weak willed girl who will do anything her guy wants, who will trust him despite glaring evidence against him, who will break all her resolutions at the sight of him. Lame. Very disappointing from the author of Kiki Strike, a terrific book about five extraordinarily intelligent, talented, and daring young women.
