Okay, here’s the story. A teenager in Croatia wakes up from a 24-hour coma. Doctors soon discover that she’s lost the ability to speak Croatian. She does, however, speak perfect German.
According to the girl’s parents, she’d been studying German (an incredibly difficult language to learn) but was by no means fluent. (This all reminds me of another story I heard several years ago.)
Interesting, right? But the most fascinating thing about this article in the Telegraph was the following quote from psychiatrist Mijo Milas:
There are references to cases where people who have been seriously ill and perhaps in a coma have woken up being able to speak other languages – sometimes even the Biblical languages such as that spoken in old Babylon or Egypt . . .
Wow. I’m sure there could be a logical explanation. But maybe, just maybe . . .

My name is Kirsten Miller, and I’m the author of The Eternal Ones. If you’ve had a chance to take a look around theeternalones.com, you know that my latest book is a twisted tale of reincarnation, true love, and sinister secret societies.
I’ve started this blog for two reasons. It will be the first place I post news about The Eternal Ones and all book-related events. The blog’s second purpose will be a little more . . . unusual.
Anyone who’s read my other books knows I’m a big fan of everything weird and wonderful. So I’ll be using this blog to post about some of the fascinating things I discover on and offline. Since The Eternal Ones deals with the subject of reincarnation, you can bet that there will be quite a few tales of past lives. (If you have one of your own, be sure to share!)
So, shall we begin?
