(Runes, #2.5)
By Ednah Walters
Release Date - 2nd December 2013
Published by - Firetrail Publishing
**The series number for this book is in chronological order. This is a full-length book of the "Runes" series**
Straight out of the psych ward, Cora just wants her life to be normal. She doesn’t want to see souls or the reapers collecting them. The guy she’s loved from a distance for years moves away without saying goodbye. So yes, she’s nursing a serious heartbreak. It’s no wonder love is the last thing on her mind when Echo storms into her life.

The chemistry between them is mind-blowing.The connection defies logic. Even better, the souls leave her alone when he is around.

Too bad Echo is the poster boy for everything she hates in a guy—hot, beautiful,and cocky. He is also a soul reaper. A Grimnir.
The very beings she wants out of her life. Maybe normal is overrated because Cora wants it all. Answers. Love. A life

Interview with Cora


Stacey: Why were you given the name Cora?

Cora: My grandmother was Coraline. I’m named after her.

Stacey: What, if anything, does your zodiac sign mean to you?
Cora: My birthday is December 5th. I am Sagittarius, the Archer. Sagittarians have lively personality and are optimists. I am a typical Sagittarian. I’m direct, forthright, and I say what I think.

Stacey: How much pride do you take in your appearance?

Cora *laughs*: A lot. I don’t care what anyone says, people are drawn by the visuals and I take care of my appearance. My hair is always nicely styled. I love to shop and dress nice. I don’t mind waking up thirty minutes early, so when I step out the door, I look my best. Echo might not admit it but he was first attracted to all this. *waves her hand to indicate her face*

Stacey: Are you also attracted to guys because of their appearance?

Cora *laughs*: At first, but what holds my interest is their personality.

Stacey: Where do you currently live (town, neighborhood, locale)? Do you like it?

Cora: Kayville, Oregon Wine Country. I’m okay with it. Before I met Echo, I couldn’t wait to finish high school and leave. Now, it’s not so bad. When with him, other cities, countries, even realms is just a portal away.

Stacey: Who is your best friend? Describe them briefly.

Cora *smiles*: I have two. Raine, beautiful hair, hazel eyes, freckles, tough as nails, yet the most loyal friend ever. Then there’s Echo. I never knew I could be best friends with a guy. That he’s everything I’ve ever wanted in a man only makes it perfect.

Stacey: What is your greatest talent?

Cora *laughs*: I’m good with makeup, hair and clothes. I might one day be a stylist if this soul business doesn’t take too much of my time.

Stacey: Do you have any irrational fears/phobias?

Cora *squints*: Not really. I live in a farm, so bugs and small animals don’t bother me.

Stacey: What is your worst habit/vice?

Cora: Curling my hair. I hate flat iron and blow driers, which means it takes forever to do my hair. But the end result is so worth it.

Stacey: What is your most cherished possession?

Cora *lifts her hand to display a ring*: A promise ring from Echo. It belonged to his mother and his grandmother before her.

Stacey *studies the ring*: It is gorgeous. Is the writing runic?

Cora: No, it is Druidic. The middle one has a special meaning.
awen 1

Stacey: What?
Cora *points at the three rays that converge at an apex*: This is called Awen. The three rays have different meanings. The left and right rays symbolize female and male energy. The center ray is their harmonious balance.

Stacey *touches the three spirals*: And this one?

Cora: That’s the triskellion. It represents Druidic virtues.


Stacey: Nice. What makes you blush?

Cora: That’s easy. When my mother calls my boyfriend hot. There’s the ew factor, but at the same time, I’m reminded Mom is a woman too

Stacey: What was your relationship status with Echo when you first met him?

Cora: Are you kidding? I’d just left the crazy house at the beginning of the story and I was in a terrible state to have a relationship. I hated Echo for the things he said and did. Well, kinda.

Gah, seriously love her to bits!!! ^_^
Make sure to check back tomorrow for the next book, Seeress.
