The Eternal Ones is a fresh and unique offering in the heavily saturated YA paranormal romance genre. Haven is a likable protagonist, and her best friend Beau is a charismatic character who provides a good sounding board and support system for Haven as she tries to navigate the murky waters of her past life. Haven's history is doled out in little pieces, keeping the reader guessing along with her as she tries to uncover the truth about who Ethan is and what happened in her past. I was never sure who was telling the truth and who was really behind the troubles in Haven's past (and present). The story contains just the right mix of adventure and romance making it a great read for fans of both genres. And while the ending nicely tied up most of the plot points, there are still enough unanswered questions to allow for an exciting sequel.
I thoroughly enjoyed The Eternal Ones and was impressed with its original concept. I really hope there will be more stories about Constance and Ethan.
After the death of her father, Haven attempted to control her visions, not wanting the attention they brought upon her and her family. But, the visions came back with a vengeance when she saw wealthy playboy Iain Morrow on a gossip news show. As she passed out, she called out Ethan's name.
Haven decides the only way she will get any peace from the visions is to figure out what they all mean. The only way to do that is to run away to New York and find Iain and see if he is really Ethan - and what that means for her life. She is afraid of what will happen if Iain is really Ethan, though, because Iain is suspected of murdering his friend. Plus, the visions she has shows her dying in a fire, and it's possible Ethan is the one who started it. Can she trust him?
THE ETERNAL ONES kept me engaged. I read it in almost one sitting, staying up until 3:00 AM to finish it. The only thing that forced me to give it 4 Stars instead of 5 was Haven. The flip-flopping about her feelings toward Iain started to get annoying about halfway through the story. One minute she trusts him COMPLETELY, and the next she believes the worst about him. Another issue about their relationship that could have been better was their romance.Read more ›
I only gave it two stars because 1, the first half of the book nearly bore me to death. Some parts were interesting, like Haven having flash backs from her past life, but other than that it just droned on and on about her family problems and lack of social life. I convinced myself to keep reading because I really wanted to see Haven and Iain meet once again in this life time, which actually doesn't happen until you are nearly half way through the book. (Chapter twenty-nine, page 159)
Secondly, Haven's trust issues. One moment she would be all over Iain and the next she would find some silly reason not to trust. Then Iain would convince her to trust him and she would. Then she would run into someone, who would say something bad about Iain, then the whole process would start all over again. This went on for the second half of the book.
And thirdly. The characters were absolutely flat. I think I only liked Iain, although I believe the author could have done a bit more work on him.
Despite all those flaws, the plot kept me going and I still am going to recommend this book. I only wished that some unnecessary pages of the book be ripped out to save my friends some time.
When The Eternal Ones got out I rushed to buy a copy because I'm such a sucker for love stories and this one promises a love that lasts forever. It deals with reincarnation and when I read the premise I knew in an instand that I'd love it. I haven't read anything before about true lovers being reincarnated and the idea behind the book was exciting and thrilling so I had big expectations when I picked it up. Having the love of your life find you in each life is awesome and epically romantic!
Unfortunately it wasn't what I was expecting. I couldn't see the connection between Iain and Haven and they barely spend any time together. There were of course a few scenes between them but it felt strange. There wasn't enough time between them to see the actual romance. Another downside that put me off at first and thought it was unnecessary was the first 150 pages. It dragged so long at the beginning that I was loosing patient and thought multiple of times to put it down. I understand that the author wanted to give us a feel of Haven's home situation but I think that it could have be done in less pages. I was more eager to learn about Iain's and Haven's story. ;)
Another reason why I disliked the beginning was probably Haven's family and town. I think I must have found a character that I absolutely hate. Her grandmother was unbelievable! I could not understand this woman! When someone in your family has strange visions or whatever, you'll most likely take them to the doctor not to the priest for a quick exorcism. I got so mad that I had to put the book down for a couple of weeks before picking it up again.
The ending of the story didn't convince me. The bad guy of the story, which I won't name so I don't spoil anything to you, was really bad at being evil.Read more ›
