 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 love this book! Two star-crossed lovers theme that  was the same old thing but this was different some how. I do want to point out that the main character is stupid for going off leaving home for some rich guy she saw on tv. Haven is a really smart girl but in the book I really wanted to stop reading it because she was acting like a weak little girl. She couldn't decide on anything or anyone.


     Haven Moore is a 16 year old small time girl trying to get out, she is forced to live in a town where everyone including the adults think she's possessed by the devil. Since she was little haven has had these dreams of other past lives. Of these two lovers finding one another then losing each other but in the last past life there was a horrible tragedy that asked questions of who did it and why? As a child the dreams plagued her entire childhood, then they just stopped. Years later as 16 year old haven is watching TV she sees Iain Morrow for the first time but knows that he's the mystery guy from her dreams.

     With this Haven start to look into her dreams more learning they aren't dreams but past lives with questions that must be answered. Finding answers Haven discovers the Ouroboros Society. A corrupt organization from the inside that lures reincarnated souls in, to do unspeakable things. Telling them her about her past life Haven is flown to New York to meet the Ouroboros Society president. Given a place to stay Haven ventures out to find Iain. Upon finding Iain their love connection is rekindled along with the secrets of Ethan and Constance their past selves. Iain and Haven are in love but while the love fest is going on so are the murder cases against Iain for killing a  rock star.
   Haven  searches for answers to what happened to Constance in her other life and why its tormenting her so much. Why is the murder charges on Iain familiar? What really happened that night?  Getting deeper and deeper into the world of Iain Morrow and the Ouroboros Society she learns something's are best left in the dark than the light for it has horrible repercussions that affects more than just her.

This book was a great story  which I gave personally four and half stars. The plot was interesting but the main character and her inability to decide on anything does keep the reader reading to find out what happens next. I loved the instant love connection that the two showed when they first meet in the story. I enjoyed laughing and reading this book which was fun.
