Immortals (Runes #2)Immortals by Ednah Walters
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Received to Review
Genre: Mythological YA (paranormal Romance)
Picture to the left is for the digital edition of the book.

Book Description: 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 

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.

My thoughts:  Ednah Walters always amazes me with the depth of her research and knowledge concerning mythology and angelic creatures.

In her Runes books she is centered on Norse Mythology. More specifically, Valkyrie. Her main character, Raine, is destined to take up the reigns of the Valkyrie. Her mother gave up her immortality to marry the man she loved, a mortal.

The second book begins a few weeks of where the first book left off.
Raine is trying to come to terms emotionally with the loss of several members of her swim team and that Torin has forgotten her.

She tries to make him remember her, and their love for each other. She is trying to learn to be a Valkyrie to have an immortal life that she hopes Torin will be a part of. She is trying to be a good friend and daughter. She is also trying to save the people that she cares about.

This is a fun sequel and very interesting. I will pretty much pick up any/all of Ednah's YA books, because I know that I will enjoy my time lost in the story.

There is some pretty intense kissing, swearing,  and violence in this book.

Read an Excerpt:

I wasn’t ready to be chummy yet. “Maybe some other time. I’m going to be busy catching up on 

homework this week.”

“But I insist.” She pouted, as though not used to being refused, and touched Torin’s arm. “Tell 

her how we’d love to have her over. You can help her with her homework.” She grinned. “Torin 

aces everything. Or he would if he paid more attention in class. He’s been distracted since we got 

here though. Do get her packet from the teacher, sweetheart,” she added.

I didn’t realize she had called Torin sweetheart until he took the folder with my homework from 

Mrs. Bates. Images of the two of them together flashed through my head, and an ache started in 

my chest. They were more than friends. I just knew it.

“I have to go.” I firmly removed Lavania’s arm from mine and took the math packet from Torin. 


“Come by later this evening, Raine,” Lavania called out.

Needing space between us, I didn’t answer her. I shouldn’t have bothered running because they 

were in my next class. Torin carried her books, and they even sat side by side. I told myself 

I would not look at them, but my eyes kept straying. Each time their eyes would be on me. I 

understood Torin’s fascination. He loved me. He might have forgotten me, but the feelings were 

there. They had to be. Please, let him remember our time together before Lavania completely 

turns his head. Most of the guys in class couldn’t seem to take their eyes off her.

How old was she anyway? Did Valkyries even age? Torin was turned over eight hundred years 

ago. He’d been nineteen at the time. Looking at him now, he still looked like any teenager. 

Lavania did too, although she was more confident and sophisticated than any girl around my age.
