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.
Miller (the Kiki Strike books) delivers a smart and sinister tale of romance and destiny that should spawn plenty of imitators. Haven Moore has spent her entire life in the small Tennessee town of Snope City, kept under tight watch by her religious grandmother and the town's priest. She's generally able to resist and control her visions of a past life with a man named Ethan, but when she sees a picture of Iain Morrow, a handsome New York playboy, she starts to suspect they share a bond that could date back centuries. She runs away to New York, where she finds not only Iain, but the Ouroboros Society, a mysterious group dedicated to helping people discover their former lives. Even as feelings for her newfound (or rediscovered) lover awaken in her, she realizes that both Iain and the society are keeping secrets from her. Her investigations take her further into the society and threaten her life. Miller's writing elevates the supernatural romance well beyond typical fare, and Haven's mix of na vet and determination makes her a solid, credible heroine. Ages 12 up.

one of my favorite books
this book is very interesting and hard to put down there needs to be a movie!
Twisting plot makes it lovable!
I really enjoyed this book. I was sad with the amount of reviews because not many people will buy books without reviews(at least me) This book keeps you guessing who is the bad and good. Till the very end. You know that character that you loved for being so sweet. Well... He/she's the bad guy. Oh wait. She/ he's not. That made this book great.
Hard to put down & if you do all you want is to pick it up
I picked this up at the library because the cover was interesting and I actually enjoyed the book! Glad its a series to be, can't wait for the next one. If you like this.. Read LJ Smith's Soulmate and Ann Brashare's My Name is Memory
