Book Review & Giveaway Blog Tour Stop - Immortals, by Ednah Walters




Wow guys. Was I super excited to be part of this tour for Book 2 of this series. Because I really, really liked the first book. If you haven't checked out Runes, by Ednah Walters and you are a YA/NA Paranormal Fiction fan, you are missing out. The details for Book 1 are below, and a link to my review if you want to check that out first. Though I try not to include spoilers in my reviews, it's going to be tough not to give some details away, so read the review for Immortals with caution.

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 Torin. 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.

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.



What a delicious series this has turned out to be. Though I read a ridiculous number of books in between reading Runes and getting to Immortals, this story had slipped its way into my heart, and it was really easy to fall right back into the story where I left off.

You know what the best part about this second installment was? Watching Raine and Torin fall in love all over again. Unfortunately that was necessary due to our first novel's cliffhanger twist that left me flabbergasted and spitting out some choice curse words. FORTUNATELY, I got to enjoy the building romantic and sexual tension between these two which Ednah Walters writes oh so well. You want some sigh worthy romance? You sure got it here. It was just as good, if not better, the second time around.

The other thing that I love about this series is how Ednah Walters uses Norse mythology. She doesn't spend story time educating you about it. You are eased into the politics, intrigues and drama of these gods and creatures. Enough to enrich the story and make you understand what is going on and why, but not too much where your head is spinning with information overload.

So if you are looking for a really entertaining, romantic, action packed YA/NA Paranormal series, look no further. Without a doubt, I will be waiting for the next book with much anticipation.

  4. Totally agree with you about how Walters handles the mythology. I'm posting my reviews of Runes and Immortals tomorrow and that was a point that I made about both books as well.
