Runes by Ednah Walters
Publication date: May 20th 2013
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
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 is she and her friends in danger, she must choose a side, but the wrong choice will cost Raine her life.

Ednah Walters has done it again! Lord I can't get enough of her books and the way she writes. I just love her to pieces and Runes was a FANTASTIC no PHENOMENAL READ! I could not put it down. Once I started reading it I could not put it down and I was so engrossed in Runes that I did not cook or clean or do homework no way it was just me and Raine and Torin!
Raine is having a rough go with things in her life. Her father has disappeared and her mother is acting weird and to make matters worse her boyfriend or not so boyfriend is moving to another country. Raine is like WTF FML because all these things are happening all at once and a person can only take so much stuff before the blow and Raine is there. Then Raine gets a new neighbor who is a little mysterious and gorgeous but had the whole bad boy thing going on and she tries to ignore him.
But Torin will not be ignored and when Raine is in trouble Torin heals her with these weird tattoos on his body. Once Torin heals Raine she starts to want Torin more and more. She needs to be by him but she is not sure what to do about it. Is it the tattoos on his body or is it that she cares for Torin? Raine decides she needs to find out what these tattoos are.
Once Raine starts to dig deeper into the meaning of the tattoos she finds out that she is somehow connected to these tattoos and Torin. What she uncovers will rock her world and cause her to have to make some serious decisions. Will Torin stand by her or will he leave her alone? What has Raine discovered that has rocked her world? Will she be able to accept was is written in the Runes...........
