Cora Jemison has come a long way from her stint in a psych ward and her fear of the dead. A confident Medium, she allows souls to possess her to help them find closure. When she decides to tell her parents the truth, that she still sees the dead and that her fiancé is a soul reaper, the Jemisons reveal secrets of their own.
Her world starts to crumble, the ripple effect threatening to destroy the one thing she can always count on. Her relationship with Echo. Cora must sort through the lies to learn the truth about who and what she is. Only then can she embrace her destiny and claim her soul mate, Echo.
I LOVE the Runes universe. Love it. So, first I want to say thank you to Ednah Walters for making this universe a reality and I am saddened that I will never be able to meet you face to face to tell you. R.I.P.
Okay, so, Cora is probably one of my favorite characters in the Runes universe. In the first book, you think she’s just this bubbly blonde who only cares about boys. But when you read her version of the Runes universe, you learn just how wrong that is. She is compassionate, intelligent, and holds her own in her own way.
As far as Runes books goes Goddess was decent enough. The writing is still amazing. I think what I liked most about this book though is that we get to see a new realm. That was a big thing for me. I haven’t read the Eirik books, but I feel that chronologically you probably should. That said, I wasn’t confused about the story itself. Maybe just a bit bummed that this would be my first experience of certain characters.
The story itself wasn’t bad and it definitely finished off Cora’s story arch. That said, it was more of a fluff piece. BUT, I did like it and I will probably reread the book itself once I’ve listened to Eirik’s books and maybe do the whole universe in a chronological sense.
I honestly love how Walters intertwined the books and it’s a great experience.
All in all, I definitely recommend this book for the young adult Norse mythos romance lovers. Like I would for the rest of the Runes universe.
Final Rating: 4/5
