Overview

Haven Moore and Iain Morrow have been living a blissful life in Rome, an ocean way from the Ouroboros Society and its diabolical leader. But paradise is not to last. The mysterious disappearance of Haven's best friend, Beau, sends the pair running back to New York, where they encounter the Horae, an underground group of women who have spent centuries scheming to destroy Adam Rosier. Only they can help Haven uncover the secret to Beau's whereabouts in one of her past lives. But their help comes at a price: Haven must infiltrate the Ouroboros Society, charm Adam Rosier, and lure him into a trap. It's a plan the Horae believe will save the world-but Haven and Iain fear that it may destroy the happiness they've been chasing for two thousand years.

From the very first line i read in her first book, The Eternal Ones, to the last page in All You Desire, i bave been captivated. I have had this book on my wish list for months. You are instantly sucked in and become emotionally attached to the entire world she has created. Told from Haven's pov, you still fall in love and become invested in every character, even Adam. I couldnt put it down, I just had to keep reading. This series is a must read for everyone.

All you desire picks off where The eternal ones left off. Haven and Iain are living under the radar in Rome. The romantic time together only lasted for so long. Haven receives a strange text from Beau leading her to believe he is in danger. With Beau missing she will stop at nothing to help save him even if it kills her. She takes a flight back to New York to find her best friend. With no one to turn to Haven is unsure of who she can trust or if she can trust her own judgement. She goes on a dangerous journey by seeking help from Adam and the Horae. Who can she trust? Will she lose her true self? This book was a great follow up to the first book. There were times I knew what to expect and once I thought I had it figured out I was thrown off again. I highly recommend reading both books in the series. I'm hoping there will be a third book to pick up where this one ended.

The Eternal Ones began with an absolutely incredible story introducing readers to the "mystery" of multiple reincarnations, and people who simply can't let go of their past lives. As they live each life, they desperately attempt to alter events in order to one day succeed at love, greed, or power - whatever they happen to crave - in a future life. This series "wraps" around Haven Moore, a high school senior who has had visions of previous lives. Not only does she have that as a constant problem, but she also has a strict, religious grandmother/guardian who insists that Haven is possessed by demons. In this new book, the author continues Haven's story with a flourish. Haven found her eternal love in a boy named Iain Morrow, who was her past lover in her past lives. She also discovered the Ouroboros Society that is chock full of people like herself, but each and every one carries with them some extremely dark secrets. It was at this Society where Haven found Adam Rosier, the man who searches for her in each life (he's also kept six of her bodies.the girls she used to be.) When Haven's beloved Iain fakes his own death to keep them safe, they flee to Rome to live out their life together. Now, a year later, Haven and Iain are living happily together in Rome, but happiness turns sour rather quickly. Haven's best friend, Beau Decker, disappears. He'd gone to New York on a search for his past lover only to turn up missing. Not wanting to, but knowing she has to, Haven and Iain return to the States in the hopes of finding Beau. But returning to NYC also means returning to the Ouroboros Society and its leader, Adam. Along the way, Haven discovers a group of sisters called the Horae, whose goal is to trap Adam and destroy him, and they need Haven's help. In exchange for helping them lock up Adam, the one in charge of their group will help Haven look into her past life to discover Beau's lost love in an attempt to find out who might have taken him. As Haven tries to do their bidding, she soon finds out that Adam is not the same Adam she escaped from a year ago. She can't let him discover that Iain is still alive, but this Adam's affections are drawing her in - closer to him then she's ever been before. Suddenly Haven is torn between love and betrayal; she wants nothing else but to find her friend and leave the Horae and the Society far behind. But the closer she gets to the people surrounding her, the closer she gets to Beau's abductor. Little does Haven know she's going to have to risk it all to uncover the real truth behind it all. The Eternal Ones have, thus far, been an incredible YA series. The story is fresh, the characters offer everything from passion to chills, and the writer does a unique job of "pulling" in readers of all ages. Quill Says: Just like the first, Book II grabs your attention and keeps it until the very last page. Past lives.adventure.this is a series you don't want to miss.

I really surprised myself last year when I read Eternal Ones. From the blurb it seemed like something that I wouldn't enjoy, but I was very pleasantly surprised by the book -and was even a little embarrassed at the fact that I enjoyed the book so much, but it ended up being such an interesting and unexpected concept that I couldn't put it down. So, of course, I was more-than willing to give the sequel a try.In All You Desire, Haven is now living with her long-timed beloved in Rome, where they hope to live a peaceful life far away from the intrigue of the Ouroboros Society. This, of course, does not last. Soon Haven runs into some financial issues, and not long after, her best friend goes missing -which, of course, is connected to Haven's past lives.Sadly, this book is about as boring as the plot sounds. Not only is it incredibly boring, but it feels like it came completely out of left field after the previous book. I was expecting more of the well-paced past-life romance from the first book, but all of that felt like it was very toned down here, almost like the emotions and the overall plot were very hazy and unclear -even to the author.And it didn't help that Haven is completely unlikeable in this book. She seemed aloof nearly the entire novel and was downright annoyed. I was amazed at just how many times I wanted to slap her throughout the book -more than the average for me. Because of all these issues, I constantly found myself fighting to continue reading the book. I nearly gave up on it so many times it's a miracle I actually reached the final page.All You Desire is a massive disappointment after The Eternal Ones. It fell apart completely. Hate to say it, but this is the end of the line for me with this series.

As with any sequel to a book I loved, I was equal parts nervous and excited to start this installment. I think it is safe to say that this book met my expectations and more... I may even like it more than the first. As with the plot of the first book, All You Desire, is filled with twists and turns that leave you excited and alert, but also slightly confused (and I say that in the best way possible). So I'm not going to say too much about the plot. I will say that I was impressed with the plot of this installment. To me, The Eternal Ones seemed like it could have easily been a stand-alone. My fear with books like those is that the sequel will be unneeded and disappointing. This book was anything but! I was happily surprised by the fast-paced plot and intriguing new characters. So in the first book, Haven sort of annoyed me at times... I got over it though, because I loved the book overall. I have to say though, she got so much better in this book! Maybe it was because I didn't really agree with all her choices in the first book, but I did more so in this book. I was really happy with her development throughout these two books. So overall, a fantastic sequel! If you loved The Eternal Ones, I'd be rushing to the store next week for this one!

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?

This is another one of those books that I nought as soon as I saw it in stores but then let it sit on my TBR pile for months until finally giving it a chance. I had loved The Eternal Ones and had hoped that there would be a sequel yet when I bought the same sequal I had hoped for I was so worried it would let me down that I read every other book I had until finally I decided to give it a chance. You know, I really need to stop doing that. Not once have I done that and been let down by the book.In The Eternal Ones Haven Moore found out that she was not the freak she was led to believe she was for the first 17 years of her life. She makes a trip to New York and finds the Ouroboros Society and the revelation that the dreams and memories she has had her whole life are not cause by insanity but because she is an Eternal One, a soul that is reincarnated again and again for centuries. In New York she also finds her soul mate, Iain, along with the leader of the Ouroboros Society, a man named Adam who has loved Haven through lifetime after lifetime but never being able to get her. Haven soon finds out that Adam's love for her has grown sinister and Iain and Haven fight for their lives against all odds.In All You Desire we join Haven and Iain in Rome enjoying the lifetime that Adam has promised to leave Haven alone. But when she gets word that her best friend Beau has gone missing she forgets all the arguments and hops on a plane to New York to try to save her best friend. She meets a group of women called The Horae who tell Haven they can help her remember her past life when Beau was her brother and that things she may see in that life could help her find Beau today. In exchange for their help though, Haven has to play her way back into Adam's life, pretending to fall in love with him and putting both her and Iain's life in danger. But Haven will do anything to save Beau and soon she finds that not everything is as it seems.The entire idea of past lives is fascinating to me and that's the main reason why I loved The Eternal Ones. I worried that All You Desire would focus more on Haven and Iain's life together and not so much on their past lives but I was pleasantly surprised when Haven's past lives played a key part of this novel. As soon as she started remembering more and more I was drawn in and enraptured. For those have read The Eternal Ones, so many things have changed since the events in that book and it kept me intrigued as I kept guessing what would happen next. The ending goes either way with this one. There could be a sequel or there may not be. I, for one, am hoping for another Eternal Ones novel and you can bet that when it comes out I will read it right away instead of waiting months and months like I did this time.

I was a little disappointed with this book. As a reader, I figured things out way before Haven did, and then it was frustrating watching her scramble about when things seemed so obvious. Adam intrigues me though. I know he's king of chaos or whatever, but he is probably the most interesting character in this story. I'm not sure why he is so hung up on Haven. The book never really explains that, but I'd like to know, because I think he'd get bored with her. Maybe it's the old "always want what you can't have" thing. I do feel the chemistry between them though. I don't really feel it between her and Iain. I enjoyed all the glimpses into the past within this book. It seemed like we got even more of them this time than in the first book, and they always grabbed my interest. The story flowed nicely, and it was fast paced for the most part. We're left with a wide open ending. It makes you think there will be a third book, but when I looked at the author's website, she says this is the last one. I don't feel like it's over though.

This book has left me speechless on more then one page. I need to read the next book as soon as it comes out.

Ok, so the book was good but the main character can get quite annoying. She is easily swayed by what others say and tell her even if she doesn't trust or like them. People who can't make up there minds annoy me sometimes but thats just me. I still think it was really good book though. Enjoy!
