Review: All You Desire by Kirsten Miller

All You Desire is the second book in the Eternal Ones series by Kirsten Miller and a YA novel from RazorBill.

Book Blurb:

It’s been over a year since Haven Moore fled to Rome, leaving behind the Ouroboros Society and its diabolical leader, Adam Rosier.  But as Haven knows all too well, her past has a habit of repeating itself.  

When her best friend, Beau Decker, disappears, Haven and her beloved Iain secretly return to New York City.  Beau’s life rests in Haven’s hands - but so does Iain’s.  If Adam discovers that Iain is still alive, he’ll use his power to ruin the two people Haven loves most.

The Horae, a group of beautiful, mystical sister, hold the key to Beau’s fate.  They want to destroy Adam, and only Haven can expose his vulnerabilities.  But giving the Horae what they want could mean handing over her soul.

In order to save Beau, Haven must seduce Adam.  And the more she manipulates Adam, the more she realizes that love has always had a funny way of manipulating her...because Adam has never seemed so beguiling.

My thoughts:

Haven and Iain have had a blissful year in Rome - but that time has come to an end.  Haven’s best friend Beau has gone missing and Haven knows that the person who has him is someone they knew in a past life - but she can’t remember what he looks like.

Hoping that a vision of the past will show her the person she is seeking, Haven returns to New York to ask the help of Phoebe, a member of the Ouroboros Society who claims to be able to help people remember their past lives.

What Haven doesn’t know is that Phoebe is part of The Horae - and they want Haven’s help in stopping Adam Rosier.  This is not the first time Haven has had dealings with The Horae - but like everything else in Haven’s past - she only get glimpses of those memories.

Haven agrees to help The Horae if they will help her find Beau - but to help them, Haven must get closer to the one person she has tried to avoid for the last year - Adam.

With Beau’s life on the line, Haven is willing to do just about anything - but as always, things are not what they appear to be.  And things may not be as black and white and Haven once thought...

All You Desire is a fantastic read that I didn’t want to end.  I can’t wait for more.

I give All You Desire 5 out of 5 stars.
