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.
Immortals by Ednah Walters is the second book in the Runes series and the second book I’ve read by her. I was hooked by her writing, the world, and characters in the first book Runes.
I found a new series after listening to Runes and had to force myself to wait a while before listening to the sequel, Immortals. I loved the first book so much that I actually bought this one well before it was finished (I did the same thing with the third installment).
Immortals begins where Runes ended. The events of the climax in the first book have placed Raine in a hard position (both family and social). Add in the Torin issue and you have a book full of drama. It was an emotional roller coaster that had me wanting to listen to the end before even finishing, but I forced myself to continue. I had to.
The characters are even more well crafted with a new Valkyrie and the familial background of Eirik. There are twists and turns that make you be at the edge of your seat. I’m actually surprised that I didn’t get into a car accident while listening.
Stephanie Terry has continued in her amazing narration. I am still able to see the characters and hearing her read placed me back in the world even when I had listened to a book between.
Immortals is longer in length than the first one, but it was filled with action. There is more world building, more revelations, and a twist that had me begging that what was happening wasn’t the case. There aren’t many books based on Norse mythos and I love that Walters has crafted a world while bringing in a mythology that not many people know about. I want to research on the mythology more.
All in all, I am definitely becoming a big Ednah Walters fan. I already have the third book in my Audible ready for me to read.
