First Look #2: The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller

Sol Stein, the author of Stein on Writing, once wrote: "The first sentence of a novel should excite the reader's curiosity..."


Here are the mechanics of First Look:

1. Start reading a new book.


2. Quote the first sentence of the first page.


3. Mention the title of the novel and the name of the author.


4. At the end of the post, add the synopsis of the novel.


Haven was back.

Synopsis:

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.
