Double Cover Reveals: Souls (Grimnirs # 2) & Witches (Runes # 4)

Ednah Walters is gearing up for the upcoming release of the fourth book in her YA Runes series, Witches, and the second installment to its companion Grimnirs series with Souls.  Today, she is releasing the covers for both books set to be released later this year.  I’ve been following this series since the beginning and have really enjoyed it.  If the series is new to you, consider reading my reviews of her past books. You can find the review links at the end of this post.

SOULS
Releasing late September 2014

WARNING: This is CORA’S story: This book may be considered NA (new adult) because it contains some swearing, violence and sex scenes: Suitable for ages 17 and up. A Clean Version is available on Amazon.

Eighteen-year-old Cora Jemison knows what it’s like to date a soul reaper. There are no Friday night movies, no school dances, and no stolen kisses between classes. It totally sucks! What makes it even worse, souls pop up when she least expects it. The last one is not her fault, but it all adds up to zero quality time with her super hot, scythe-carrying boyfriend, Echo.
 
Since Cora was etched with special runes by an evil Immortal, she understands why souls are drawn to her. She makes the best of it by helping souls find closure while Echo escorts them to the realm of the dead. Perfect partners, until a dark soul visits Cora in the dead of the night and Echo decides her soul-helping days are over.
 
Cora can either listen to Echo or follow her instincts. To make matters worse, other reapers start stalking her, demanding she hand over the soul. Even her Valkyrie friends think she’s gone too far. But something sinister is coming their way, and the soul is the key to saving her town, her friends, and her relationship with Echo. Can she convince Echo to see things her way before it’s too late?

One lost love.

 

One lost best friend.

 

One hot soul reaper.

 

Straight out of the psyche ward, Cora just wants her life to be normal. She doesn’t want to see souls or the reapers collecting them. The love of her life, the guy she’s loved from a distance for years, has moved away without saying goodbye. So yes, she’s nursing a serious heartbreak. It’s no wonder love is the last thing on her mind when Echo storms into her life.

 The chemistry between them is mind-blowing. The connection defies logic. It doesn’t help that Echo is the poster boy for everything she hates in a guy—hot, beautiful, and cocky. A general pain-in-the-butt. Being around him makes her feel more alive than she’s ever felt before. But more important, the souls leave her alone when he is around.

Echo is perfect for her. Echo might even be her soul-mate. There is only one problem. Echo is a freaking soul reaper. A Grimnir. The very beings she wants out of her life. Maybe normal is overrated because Cora wants it all. Answers. Love. A life. You see, once you fall for a Grimnir, your life will never be the same again.

Book Description

Nothing can stop Raine Cooper when she wants something…

Raine finally knows that her gorgeous neighbor, Torin St. James, is a legend straight out of Norse mythology, and that her feelings for him are strong. Torin is crazy about Raine too, breaking the one rule he lives by: Never fall for a mortal. The problem is he no longer remembers her, his memories erased by Norns—Norse destiny deities—to punish her for defying them.

She will make Torin forget his one rule a second time and fall in love with her all over again.

But she quickly learns that well-laid plans do not work when dealing with deities and supernatural beings. Desperate, Raine makes choices that could not only tear her and Torin further apart, but lead to the destruction of everything and everyone she loves.

Book Review

I am already a fan of this series, and I couldn’t wait to read the second book in the Runes series. I highly recommend this series to those who enjoy YA literature and encourage you to start with the first book that introduces the main characters and immerses readers into a paranormal world centering around mythology, ancient magic, and romance. Runes was an awesome first book that left us with a one shock of a cliffhanger, and Immortals picks up the storyline two weeks later.

By the end of the first book, Raine realized that she was more than a typical seventeen-year-old with powers inherited from her mother.  Raine’s mother has brought in a Valkrie to become her trainer if she wishes to become immortal. After falling in love with Torin, Raine wanted nothing more than to become a Valkyrie  so they could always be together. Now, however, she’s not so certain that she wants to go forward with her training because of the punishment inflicted upon her by the deities of destiny or Norns.

When the story opens, Raine has lost Torin and is desperate to get him back. She’s already working on a plan to help Torin remember their relationship.  Of course, it isn’t easy, and much of the first part of the book is spent with her trying to help Torin get his memories back and feeling frustrated and heartbroken as she watches him with other girls. Torin is still the gorgeous, cocky Valkrie that she fell in love with, but now he has no interest in pursuing a relationship with her.  To compound this, the other students have become afraid of her after what happened at the last swim meet, and many wonder if she’s really a witch. Even when the situation seems hopeless, Raine perseveres because she is emotionally strong, fiercely loyal, and one of the most stubborn heroines I know.  She also has an advantage because she knows the depth of Torin’s love for her, and, just like that old adage says, love can conquer all.

Even though other students treat Raine like a freak, she still has her two best friends, Eirik and Cora to support and protect her. Both of them play a much more significant role in this book.  The truth about Eirik’s identity is finally revealed, and, wow, it was not what I expected. Even though Raine believes she and Eirik are just meant to be friends, she learns he needs her now more than ever before. His life is in danger, and, in her search to find the evil that shadows Eirik, she finds that everyone around her is a suspect, even those who seemed so trustworthy in the first book. What I like about Walter’s storytelling is that nothing is as obvious as it seems. Her characters and the conflicts they face are often unpredictable, and this is one of the main reasons I’m drawn to this series.

And yay! Andris is back along with Ingrid, two Valkryies who work with Torin to reap souls. Andris is one of my favorite characters because he can do something nice in one scene and then turn right around and behave like a jerk in the next.  Even though he has lost his mate, Maliina, Andris still keeps himself together but is as outrageous as ever.  A new immortal is introduced as well. Lavania has arrived to train Raine and teach her how to use the magic of runes. Unfortunately, her actions also make Raine question whether she is as trustworthy as she seems.

The plot becomes more complex as the story progresses. Raine discovers the truth about her identity, and it becomes clear why the Norns are so desperate to have her. Now, though,  she has the confidence to stand up the manipulative  Norns who have tried to keep her apart from Torin.  By the end of the book, friendships have been tested, and the dynamics of the characters’ relationships with one another have shifted.  The conclusion foreshadows some of the conflicts that will emerge in the rest of the series as the stakes get higher, but it also left me feeling content with the outcome until the next book is released.

I received a copy of ARC copy of Immortals from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Read an Excerpt

 

I shook my head. “You can’t blame yourself. And these three Norns weren’t the ones who hurt me. They have their own agenda. Evil Norns caused the lightning.”

“These Norns are good? They looked mean.”

“They can be. Could we promise not to keep secrets from each other anymore?”

He grinned and gave me a thumbs up. Then the smile disappeared from his face. “Why didn’t he protect you?”

I winced at his tone and followed the direction of his gaze to Torin, who was now seated at a table with his entourage. “He tried. Norns are too powerful. It was hopeless.”

He wore a skeptical look. “Then what’s his problem?”

“What do you mean?”

“He couldn’t leave you alone while we were dating, and now he’s treating you like a stranger.”

“It’s not Torin’s fault. The Norns erased his memories.”

Eirik scowled. “Why? Norns only scramble Mortals’ memories.”

“They did it to punish me.”

“What? Why?” Cora entered the cafeteria, and his eyes zeroed in on her. She’d changed her T-shirt and pants for a dress that looked really great on her. She must have had it in her car because there was no way she’d driven to her house and back that fast. Eirik dragged his eyes from Cora. “Never mind. We’ll talk later,” he added just as Cora slid beside him.

“Talk about what?” Cora asked, her eyes volleying between us. “What did I miss?”

“I was telling Eirik about my psychic business and my rates.”

Cora laughed.

Eirik wore a bewildered expression since he had no idea what I was talking about, but he caught on fast. “Yeah, brilliant idea.”

“I’m going to be the accountant.” She bumped him with her shoulder. “You can be the muscle.”

Eirik flushed.

Book Review

Runes is  the first book in a fantastic new young adult (YA) series that features an amazing cast of characters,  lots of mystery and suspense involving supernatural beings, and the beginnings of a fragile, but sizzling romance.

Lorraine Cooper or Raine as she’s called by her friends is the heroine of the story. She’s a teenager on the cusp of turning seventeen, and the plot of the story is revealed through only Raine’s point of view. By limiting the point of view, Walters allows readers to connect with Raine and really get to know how strong and honorable she tries to be as she gradually discovers that she and her fellow swim team members are the target of a group of supernatural beings who are here on a mission.  It is engaging to follow along as Raine slowly starts to piece together the mystery behind runes magic.

Raine seems like a typical teenager who enjoys hanging out with her two best friends, Cora and Eirik. However, early in the story, readers learn that Raine is putting up a courageous front as she deals with the uncertainty of her father’s fate.  Three months ago, her father disappeared when his plane crashed over the Pacific Ocean, and Raine and her mother have no idea whether he survived, since his body was never recovered.  Her mother refuses to give up hope, but Raine is not as certain. She chooses to keep her concerns and worries to herself, refusing to burden her friends and family.

Little does Raine know that her life is about to dramatically change when her new next door neighbor Torin St. James knocks on her door, looking for Eirik.

tumblr_mn0dfamcG71rjpy4bo1_500torin

Raine is in awe when she first sees him:

“I took a step back, my pulse leaping. In one sweeping glance, I took in the stranger’s shaggy black hair, piercing Pacific blue eyes under arched eyebrows, black leather jacket, and hip-hugging jeans. Either fate had conjured the poster boy of all my fantasies and deposited him on my doorstep or I was dreaming.”

Although Raine is immediately attracted to Torin, she refuses to admit it to herself. One main reason is that she has already set her sights on Eirik, her friend from childhood and she’s just waiting for him to take the initiative to elevate their friendship status to a committed dating relationship.

Furthermore, Raine finds Torin to be arrogant, annoying, and rude to the point that she tries to avoid him. The conversations between the two are witty, engaging, and show how much Torin enjoys bringing out Raine’s snarky attitude. It is easy to see there is a mutual attraction but both do their best to ignore the electricity that seems to spark when they’re together.

Raine’s intuition tells her something is unusual about Torin and the three new exchange students, Andris, Maliina, and Ingrid, she meets when the swim team members gather for a game of Ultimate Frisbee at the park.

Andris is a charismatic character who reminds me of Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

tumblr_mn55xjIvbZ1rdyngto1_500spike

He’s tactless, but honest and direct, even though he doesn’t seem to care who gets hurt.
 photo Alwaysbeenbad_zpsfa87281d.gif

This becomes evident when he openly flirts with Raine, making his significant other, Maliina jealous. She retaliates by assaulting Raine during the game.

A major turning point in the story occurs when Torin steps in and magically heals Raine. She knows her injuries are severe, but, after Torin holds her for a minute, she miraculously is able to stand up and walk away.  photo wow2_zps42bd324b.gif

She confronts Torin to find out who or what he is and how he saved her.

sexyleatherguy

Torin denies her claims until she reveals that she has seen tattooed markings on Andris. In his shock, he confirms some of her suspicions:

.“…They’re not tattoos. They’re runes, and Mortals aren’t supposed to see them.”6754170-vertical-rows-of-unusual-unique-runes-or-ancient-symbols-from-dead-language-computer-generated-compl

Raine soon realizes that she is surrounded by some type of supernatural beings who seem to have a vested interest  in what happens to the  members of her school’s swim team.

The action continues with a series of disastrous events that involve Raine and the rest of the swim team, motivating her to discover the origins of Torin and his counterparts, the significance of the magical runes, and the supernaturals’ sinister purpose for targeting this particular group of athletes. Fortunately for Raine, Torin is always there to protect her. Because Torin cares so much to Raine, he does admit that he is an immortal but rules prevent him from revealing anything more about what he is and his job.

tumblr_mn1hqcloX61r61ijvo1_500ImmortalEventually, Raine learns that Torin has been breaking rules for her, and there are serious consequences for those who interfere with one’s destiny or fate.

Even though Raine is seeing Eirik, and Torin isn’t supposed to get involved with mortals, they can’t fight their desire for each other:

“You feel it, don’t you? “ he said. “This thing between us.” 

“Thing didn’t begin to describe how I felt about him. He was an obsession, a craving. I had Eirik whom I’d loved since we were children and that wasn’t about to change. But Torin affected me in ways I couldn’t begin to describe. I was miserable without him, yet when with him my emotions were all over the place. He made me mad one minute and euphoric the next.”

One kiss is all it takes for them to realize they have found true love.

Kissing (2)

Unfortunately, they aren’t getting that happily ever because each is willing to make sacrifices to ensure the safety and happiness of the other. As more secrets are revealed, the rising action of the story leads to an intense, but unresolved, climatic ending.
 photo tumblr_ma7na6A4Rq1r2a5r0o1_500shock_zpsaf9e5c2b.gif

Walters weaves together an intriguing story of mystery involving magic, mythology, and romance that consumed me until the last page.  The shocking cliffhanger has me anxiously awaiting the second book in the series, entitled Immortals.

 I received a copy of this book from Firetrail Publishing via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
