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!

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?

Immortals by Ednah Walters
Series: Runes #2
Publication date: August 5th 2013
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
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.
So Raine comes up with a plan…
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.
5 of 5 Immortals
First I have to say that I love Ednah's writing and the more I read from her the more I need from her. She is just simply amazing and Immortals totally blew me away. I mean I just could not put it down because I needed to know what was going to happen. I felt like I was sitting on the edge of a cliff and any minute I was going to fall. I mean I was crazy as crazy can get because Immortals picks right up from Runes. If you read Runes you know the ending was crazy and I cried because I said there is no way in hell Raine can survive this by herself. She will need all her friends to support her and help her because let's face it the wrath of a God is far worse than any punishment man can deliver.
The Gods are just straight out pissed at Raine for what she and Torin did but she is determined to fight back for her and Torin's sake. Raine is a force to be reckoned with and she is determined to right the wrong she did. Although in her eyes loving someone is not wrong and she is not sorry for loving Torin and being with him. What the Gods did to Torin is so wrong but Raine will revive all that was taken from him and he will love her again. Torin is crazy about Raine and no matter what the Gods do to him deep down inside his protective nature will bring back all that he has lost. True love like that can never be taken away because it is in their souls and their souls call to one another.
Raine has no idea that she is very important in the grand scheme of things and the she will have to sacrifice will be nothing for her because she is determined to reverse what she has done to Torin. The Gods will also not go down without a fight and they are determined to get what they want. Raine will have to make choices that have some serious consequences and decisions will be made with a heavy heart but at the end of the day Raine is determined to have her old Torin back.
Will Raine be able to get Torin to love her again? What will the Gods do? This is such a must read series that I need book three like I need air to breathe!
