Review of Runes by Ednah Walters (Runes series Book 1)

I have read this book months ago, but due to lack of time, laziness and other personal things going on I didn’t write a review straight away. So I had to reread the book again. Seriously, it was like 4th or even 5th time. And I will re-read it again in few weeks as next part is to be released!! YAY!!

I have bought this book by mistake (damn, brilliant one-click on Amazon! – I ❤ to be bits LOL). Normally, I would be like – panicking and clicking cancel, please! but with this book I was like: aaahhh whatever! Besides the cover is so pretty!


Small blurb:

Seventeen-year-old Raine Cooper has enough on her plate dealing with her father’s disappearance, her mother’s erratic behavior and the possibility of her boyfriend relocating. The last thing she needs is Torin St. James—a mysterious new neighbour with a wicked smile and uncanny way of reading her.

Raine is drawn to Torin’s dark sexiness against her better judgement, until he saves her life with weird marks and she realizes he is different. But by healing her, Torin changes something inside Raine. Now she can’t stop thinking about him. Half the time, she’s not sure whether to fall into his arms or run.

Scared, she sets out to find out what Torin is. But the closer she gets to the truth the more she uncovers something sinister about Torin. What Torin is goes back to an ancient mythology and Raine is somehow part of it. Not only are she and her friends in danger, she must choose a side, but the wrong choice will cost Raine her life

My thoughts:

I simply loved this book.

In the story we have quite few characters, but the main two are: Raine and Torin (yum). Raine is a typical seventeen year old teenager, she loves to read, have a crazy best friend and has a crush on her childhood friend, Eirik. She is determined to take their relationship further, but then hot, bad-ass guy moves next door. And everything changes from the first meeting which was just hilarious! Torin is cocky and in most situation he is a smart ass that loves to put Raine in awkward (nice awkward!) situations.

But of course dealing with teenager’s hormones is not enough to complicate Raine’s life. In addition her dad has been missing for few months, her mum because of that is acting strange and also the new guy (that makes her blood boil with anger and emotions that she has not yet felt) with his new friends are behaving a bit strange.

One jealous girls, that is convinced that Raine is trying to steal her boyfriend, changes everything with her obsession. And after that the whole life of Raine, Torin, Eirik and their friends just changes and they are thrown in the middle, where a normal human should not be part of. And now Raine is responsible of keeping her family and friends safe.

It’s a brilliant read. I never was a big fan of Norse mythology (thank you my ex), but thanks to Ednah it has changed and I just love her writing. Is easy and her books show so much emotions!
