Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales.

Quick & Dirty: This was an epic romantic story filled with betrayal, intrigue, drama, and adventure.

Opening Sentence: Haven Moore checked her watch and turned back toward the city.

The Review:

Haven Moore has been happily living in the beautiful city of Rome for the last year with her soul mate. After almost losing Iain to a fire, they decided to leave and try to live their lives away from everything that happened in New York. Their happy life is about to come to a halt. Iain’s mother is suing Haven saying that she forged Iain’s will, and she plans to take all of the Morrow’s fortune. So all their assets are currently frozen, and they are pretty much broke. Then Haven’s best friend Beau decides to go and disappear. Beau got a call from a boy claiming to have been his boyfriend from another life and Beau goes to New York to meet him. Soon after he lands he disappears and Haven and Iain decide they have to return to New York to find him.

Once she returns to New York she is also approached by a new group called the Horae. Their sole purpose in life is to try and destroy Adam Rosier, the leader of the Ouroboros Society. Adam has one weakness and that is his love for Haven. The Horae recruit Haven and come up with a plan that will stop Adam for good and in return for Haven’s help they will help her find Beau. There is one big problem and that is that Haven will have to pretend that she is falling in love with Adam. She still hasn’t forgotten all the horrible things that he has done to her and Iain in all their past lives. But as she starts to spend time with Adam he seems to be a totally different person than he was a year ago. Haven starts to question if she can trust Adam or if his change of heart is just an act. She also starts to question if she could ever have feelings for Adam and in the process she puts her and Iain’s relationship in jeopardy. Who is her true soul mate and will she be able to find Beau before it is too late?

Haven is our heroine in this fun series. Haven is spunky and when she makes a decision she is a very determined girl. She is madly in love with Iain, but she is very independent. Once she finds out that Beau is in trouble she drops everything to try and help him. She is very loyal, and she tries to follow her instincts even though it is hard at times. There are times when she has a little bit of a bad attitude, which can be a little frustrating. But overall, I really like Haven and I think she is a good character with a good voice.

Iain has some really good qualities, but some frustrating ones as well. He is totally devoted to Haven and loves her unconditionally. Growing up he had a rough childhood with a mother who didn’t love him and a father who didn’t have time for him. He has a special ability where he is able to remember all of his past lives, so he always knew that he had to find Haven. He also is a really good person that is willing to help total strangers if they need it. He does have a jealous streak and at times I thought that he should trust Haven more. He also makes rash decisions that have some pretty serious consequences. Overall, I really like Iain. He is defiantly swoon worthy and he is great for Haven.

I just have to say that I totally fell for Adam in this book. In the first book he is the villain and a pretty creepy one, but in this book he is totally different. He has reformed himself to be a better person that Haven could come to care about. He is still a villain in his own way, but he honestly really cares about Haven and her happiness. He is very respectful and sweet to her and it’s hard not to fall for him just a little. Yes, he has made a lot of mistakes in the past, but he is really trying to change and be better even if it is just to impress Haven. I really loved his character in this book and my heart broke for him, because Haven couldn’t ever truly return his feelings.

This was a fun read for me. I actually liked it better then the first book. I was hooked from the very beginning and it kept me interested the whole way through. The plot was fun and interesting, the character‘s were will developed, and the romance was really sweet. This book was filled with action, betrayal, drama, and suspense. This was the ending to the series and it wrapped up nicely. The ending was left a little open, and there is room for more stories if the author ever decided to write another book. I really enjoyed this series and I would recommend it to anyone that loves a action packed romantic paranormal book.

Notable Scene:

Haven hadn’t forgotten how handsome he was-how dark and debonair. He still had the same aura of power about him, as though he could snap his fingers and turn the world off. But he looked younger than Haven remembered, no more than twenty. He was dressed for the winter weather in a perfectly cut cashmere coat. His hands were clad in black leather gloves and a charcoal scarf was tied around his neck. It was nothing more than a costume, she realized. He needed no protection from the cold.

“Hello, Adam.” Haven felt light-headed, short of breath. But much to her surprise, she no longer felt any fear. Maybe it was because Haven was older now. Or maybe Adam had improved his human disguise. But something had changed since they’d last been together.

FTC Advisory: Razorbill/Penguin provided me with a copy of All You Desire. No goody bags, sponsorships, “material connections,” or bribes were exchanged for my review. ( )

I actually picked this book up at Borders when they were going out of business and after I started reading it I realized it was the second one in the Eternal Ones series. Just with that first chapter I was already hooked, I stopped reading, ran out,bought and devoured the first book. I love the idea of reincarnation and this is the first book that I've ever read that really interwines it into the story and does it well. With the first book I found myself hating the "bad guy" and rooting for Haven and Iain. In this book I started to pity Adam, even like him. I found myself not feeling sure who she should end up with. I even started to understand his bad ways! Being able to explore the characters past lives gives them a depth that you don't usually encounter in other books. The mysterious Horae was a nice touch to the balance of good and evil, showing you that not everything is black and white. A lot of times a cliffhanger ending in a book will leave me angry, this one however left me wondering if I should be cheering or worried. I can't wait until the next installment to see how these characters continue to develop. I love that I don't even have a guess as to what new conflicts they are going to encounter.

Much better than the first despite an awkward beginning, though I'm not convinced that this couple doesn't need to work on their communication skills. ( )

All You Desire takes place a year and a half after The Eternal Ones. Haven and her soulmate, Iain, are living happily in Rome, far from the clutches of Adam, the immortal being who has been obsessed with Haven for the last 2000 years.
But Haven and Iain rush back to New York City when Haven's best friend, Beau, disappears on his way to meet his soulmate. To find his kidnapper, Haven will have to remember her past life in Florence 700 years ago when she and Beau were siblings. Haven bargains with the Horae, a group of women who have been reincarnated again and again to stop Adam, to help her see into her past life. In return, she will lure Adam into a trap where the Horae can imprision him forever.
But as Haven returns to Adam and the Ouroboros Society, she is no longer certain of anything and anybody. Iain goes off on his own with his own plan to bring down the Ouroboros Society. Adam seems to have changed for the better, and the Horae's plan no longer seems like such a good idea. Can Adam actually be a good guy, after all that he has done? ( )
