Blog tour - "Runes" by Ednah Walters with a tour giveaway!

Runes (Runes #1)Runes by Ednah Walters
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Netgalley
Genre: Contemporary Mythology ~ New Adult

Book Description: 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 him. 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. 

My thoughts:  Ednah Walters writes fascinating books. In this book she tackles Norse Mythology. She seems to keep coming up with ideas for books that fascinate me, and she keeps the fascination alive.

Raine is in high school and living a normal teenage life. Her world is turned upside down when she has a new neighbor move in, Torin St. James. He takes all that she knows and believes and adds a new spin on her view of life.

This book is full of surprises, so I really don't want to say too much about it. I enjoyed reading it. Of course, everything I have read of Ednah's YA books I have enjoyed. I look forward to reading the things that she will publish in the future.

Content Warning: Intense kissing, may plant ideas into your head to find your significant other and do some smooching yourself. :)

Read an Excerpt:
 I read the response from the coach. The swim team had Ultimate Frisbee game in the park tomorrow afternoon and tryouts in a few weeks. I responded to his e-mail then headed to the garage.

 Most of my kind, when not working, found a hobby to keep them preoccupied. Motorcycles were my thing. There was not a single engine I couldn’t dismantle and put together again, tweak or modify for maximum performance. My interest started when the first steam-powered motorcycles were built in 1800s. By then, I had gotten tired of using portals. I even bought one of the first commercially available motorcycles with an internal combustion engine. 

 My latest was a Harley. V-twin engine. Top of the line. I loved it. I was almost done modifying it to my specification, but I couldn’t work in this garage. I glanced around and shook my head. Didn’t the Sevilles ever throw away anything? There were way too much crap stored in the place, majority of them old electronics—TV, computers, gaming consoles. 

Pushing my bike outside, I heard a car start and looked up. Raine was backing out of her driveway, but her eyes were on me. Her car shot backwards and slammed into something.
