Runes by Ednah Walters (Immortal Series)

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 neighbor with a wicked smile and uncanny way of reading her.

Raine is drawn to Torin’s dark sexiness against her better judgment, 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 Review

Raine is your typical girl next door, in love (or so she thinks) with her best friend. She’s known Eric all her life, they’re perfect for each other. Until Torin shows up on her doorstep. He gets under her skin, in every possible way and makes her doubt her feelings for Eric. Strange things start happening whenever Torin and his friends around. Strange as in deadly. Raine must now face a threat and figure out whether Torin is a friend or a foe. Does she really belong with Eric? And what about her father’s strange disappearance? Her mother’s abnormal behavior?

To say that I enjoyed reading Runes is an understatement. I loved it. I loved Torin’s character. The bad boy who wants to turn a new a leaf. He’s everything a girl wants and needs, well maybe a bit more. The novel had a good pace to it. It was funny and it had a couple of scenes that had my heart racing. The author does a good job at keeping you on your toes. It is something that I was starting to miss from the other books so I was grateful that this one had a good build up.

I recommend this book. It is an awesome read. Refreshing and of course, it has Torin.
