Book Review: Runes by Ednah Walters

(Runes #1)
by Ednah Walters
Release Date: 20th May 2013
Published by: Firetail Publishing
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 Rating
My Review
Ednah Walters is one of my favourite Indie authors, she writes Contemporary Romance, Young Adult and now New Adult. No matter what genre, her writing is flawless, Ednah has the ability to draw the reader right into the story and draw out all their emotions. Runes has just blown me away, another spell-binding story with amazing characters.
Our main character Raine is your average teenage girl, she's on the school swim team, has two best friends who've always been there, she's crushing on Erick which just happens to be one of her long life best friends. Raine is still trying to cope with the disappearance of her father, who's plane crashed and his body was never recovered. Her mother still holds out all hope that he is alive and will come home.
With all this happening Raine was surprised when a mysterious man knocked on her door and asked to see her best friend Erick. From that moment her life changed completely.
No matter where Raine went her new neighbour Torin St James wasn't too far away, he always seemed to show up when she was in trouble and needed help. She started to notice weird things about Torin and it became her mission to find out what he was all about. As days go on feelings start to develop for the HOT Harley riding spunk from next door.
Torin, every woman's fantasy man. Gorgeous blue eyes, a smile that'll make you weak in the knees..bound in leather and rides a Harley, definitely the bad boy next door. Ednah really outdone herself with this bad boy, she really brought Torin to life and he'll make everyone feel those butterflies. My new fictional boy crush! ;-)
With a powerfully magnetic storyline, a plot that'll have you guessing and glued to every page, characters that'll leave you inspired, there's not much this book doesn't possess. Ednah has brought a new world along with the runes, one you'll find yourself coming back for and thinking about way after you've finished the last page.
Here's a quote from the book just to give you a little teaser taste of a certain hottie .. Torin... ;-)
"If I marked you, Freckles, I'd be under your skin. You wouldn't think of anything or anyone but me twenty-four-seven." ~ Torin
I recommend this book to everyone that loves a surprising whirl-wind adventure, go get your copy and join the craze!! :-)
