the penguin five: the eternal ones

Last week, I mentioned that I’d be part of promoting the other four books in the Penguin Five (five young adult titles being released this Fall/Winter). The title for August is Kirsten Miller’s The Eternal Ones. So, this week I’ll be posting an intro about the book, a guest post from Kirsten, (who is absolutely lovely and who is also the author of the Kiki Strike series), and, finally, as the grand finale: an interview with Kirsten and a chance for you to win one of two signed hardcover copies of The Eternal Ones. Wahoo!

So, without further adieu, here is an intro/summary of The Eternal Ones:

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’ll be posting every day this week, so please come on back for Kirsten’s guest post, interview, and for a chance to win one of the two signed copies. See you tomorrow!

    Yay! I have actually had the chance to read ALL of the penguin five books. 🙂 (Although yours is the only one I own myself, which I am quite pleased about)

    I’m really interested to see what you have to say about this one!

    Enna Isilee, I won’t be reviewing it. But the interview and guest blog are going to be AWESOME.

    Samantha, I agree. What a cool premise, right?

    Aubrey, no problem! 🙂

    Hmm, I think I just handed a couple of these out to some of my co-workers to do the advance read. As I am the lead bookseller for the teen and children’s department, I kept yours because it is more my genre. If the others receive good reviews from my readers, I will definitely pick them up. Since I loved Matched it will make its rounds to other booksellers and will be on my holiday hand selling recommends for all booksellers at my store.
