Growing up in a small Tennessee mountain town is hard, but it’s even more difficult when you’re Haven Moore, she of the broken family and mysterious visions. For as long as she can remember, Haven has had visions of herself in another life, as a woman named Constance, who loved a man named Ethan. Constance’s pull spurs Haven to go to New York City, where she is drawn to the famous playboy, Iain Morrow, and their ominous connection to the mysterious Ouroboros Society.

“"Ever since she was a tiny little thing, my nine-year-old daughter's been talking about someone named Ethan. The first time I caught her, I was walking past her bedroom. The door was open a crack and I heard her whispering. I remember she was sitting on the floor with her dolls around her talking to someone I couldn't see. Her eyes looked all glassy like she was in some kind of trance. She said:"Remember that time you kissed me by the fountain?""What was that?" I asked, and Haven jumped like I'd caught her in the middle of something. "Who are you talking to?""Ethan.""Which one is Ethan?" I thought she was talking about one of her dolls, which made her laugh."Ethan's not a doll. He's real.""Well then, if he's real, where is he?""Dead," she said."”
