The Eternal Ones

Eternal Ones

(1)

Haven Moore has always known she's different: there are the talents that can't be explained; the knowledge of places she's never been; and then there are the visions that overwhelm her - terrifying visions of a life that ended tragically two decades earlier and more than a thousand miles away in New York City. The citizens of Haven's rural, highly religious community, believe that she's been possessed by a demon. But this is no demon: it's reincarnation.

Haven journeys all the way to Manhattan in search of clues about her past life and a decades-old murder. One wrong move could lead her into the clutches of the sinister villain at the center of a conspiracy much larger than she could have ever imagined. But if she makes the right choices, Haven will find the answers she's been seeking her entire life.

This is an epic and thrilling romance set in the snake-handling churches of Appalachia, the dusty ruins of ancient Rome, and the grand mansions of Manhattan. The Eternal Ones tells the story of the first battle in a war between undying love and eternal evil.

Good as a thriller, impossible as a romance

Opposed to some other reviewers I thought the thriller part of The Eternal Ones” was quite thrilling and not too slow. Sadly a lot of the suspense I felt was caused by Haven’s naivité. I constantly sat on my hands being afraid of what stupid decisions Haven would make next. Apart from the suspense the only positive element I can point out is gay best friend Beau Becker. Although drenched in clichés he was alive, sweet and fun. What did not work at all for me was the romance subplot: It fell completely flat on his and her side: Ian is an uncaring jerk in my opinion. He can buy or build as much houses for Haven as he wants, if he does not mind her feelings. All my margin notes about Ian say things like “Somebody truly in love does not pressure the one he loves like this. Even if he wants to protect her he does not have to lie so shamelessly and cold-heartedly to her.” Haven is having the hots for Ian, although she believes him capable of murder and feels compelled to spy on him all the time. All other persons were either completely good or completely evil/weak (most of them the latter). It was frustrating to see how very passive Haven’s mother was – even when her daughter was made responsible for torching the house down or got thrown out of school. The grandmother and the minister – who I tagged as a pedophile in the beginning – were unbelievably evil. Apropos evil: I’ve never been to the Bible Belt. But I simply refuse to believe that the behavior of the inhabitants of Slope City is anywhere near probable. To throw someone out of school, who shows signs of epilepsy or another illness, that includes fits and faintings, instead of punishing those, who did all the mobbing, to point with a finger at someone in the congregation and declare her to be possessed, contemporary High School students, who talk about demonic possession without being afraid to be ridiculed forever by their classmates, a minister who has that much power over a whole town – including the authorities. No way. But the crème de la crème has been that pathetic Brooklyn Devil. He sounds like he had been invented by Terry Pratchett, but he wasn’t meant to be funny, I am sure. The Eternal Ones is getting no recommendation, not from me.
