I have received an ARC copy of this book from the author in exchange of an honest review.
The Norns think they’ve won,
but it’s hard to control a teenager,
let alone a powerful one…
Raine Cooper’s life should be perfect. She’s an Immortal Seeress, most likely to be elected Prom Queen, and envied by the girls at Kayville High for dating the dreamy quarterback, Torin St. James. Instead, she’s haunted by the smug facial expressions the Norns’ wore during their last meeting.
As a Norn-In-Training, Raine crossed the line long ago when she sided with the Valkyries and Mortal Witches. When the Norns return with demands of their own, Raine feels trapped. She must repair the battle grounds and wipe out the memories of every Mortal witness. Torin tries to convince her that the Norns are manipulating her, but she refuses to listen. At least until the Norns’ demands focus on someone she loves. When Raine refuses to cooperate with them, their punishment is swift and gut-wrenching, turning her pain into fury.
Raine plots revenge on a massive scale and makes deals with unsavory allies. Her goal? Total destruction of the entire Norn race. Raine’s only hope of salvation is Torin, but how much will he sacrifice to save her?
This book is amazing! Well, the whole series is!
In here, Raine, is still learning how powerful she is and how far she can go against Norns (good and bad) before they will go berserk. In here we can see that she can go pretty far and they seem like they are terrified of her. Especially when she bonds with one particular dagger. They have not expect that. The expected that she either won’t be able to do it, or she will herself go evil from the power it has. How shocked and scared they are after she is not becoming an evil Norn. She is still fighting against becoming one. And she finally decides on whose side she will be after Ragnarok happens. And it’s not Hel’s, Norn’s or Asgardians. Raine is setting her own goals and does not care what Norns or Gods have planned for her. It’s her life and she is determined to make it her own. Among her friends and family. And most important she is determined to spend it with Torin. Her visions are getting more controlled and because of them she is taking charge of few people and their destiny. She wants them to live and have a bright future. And Norns they don’t like it, but she simply doesn’t care. She is prepared to fight for her “charges” and she will win.
Her first “charge” is school’s famous Bad Boy, Beau. He is bad, smart, snarky and changes girls faster than anything. Raine is set to help him and save him from the biggest mistake he could do. She is so determined that she even goes to boys changing room to steal his shirt to get a premonition. *smirk*. They relationship is something that spice up a bit feelings between Torin and Raine. It shows that both of them can be also jealous.
Torin, he is one sexy Immortal! He knows what he wants and what he wants the most is Raine. Always her. No one else and nothing else. Basically, she is IT for him. And he is telling her that in every way he possibly can. Whenever he feels she is doubting them, her. His way of words is just perfect!
The other thing what I love about this part? INGRID! She is so perfect! And amazing Ednah, FINALLY, took her out from her shell and she is showing how fun and kickass she can be! Love her! And the sparks between her and one particular Grimnir? Priceless!
The book is simply amazing and gives you high hopes for next parts!
HUGE, FAT 5 stars! Well done Ednah! Keep them coming!
