News: The Eternal Ones & Out for Blood Extracts, Sugarscape Competition & I Am Number Four UK Launch


The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller was published in the UK by Puffin Razorbill on August 19th (my review is here), and you can read 3 sample chapters here: Sampler #1 / Sampler #2 / Sampler #3.


Amazon summary:

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.
