WARNING: This is CORA’S story: This book may be considered NA (new adult) because it contains some swearing, violence and sex scenes: Suitable for ages 17 and up. A Clean Version will also be available on Amazon.
Cora Jemison knows what it’s like to date a soul reaper. There are no Friday
night movies, no school dances, and no stolen kisses between classes. It
totally sucks! What makes it even worse, souls pop up when she least expects
it. The last one is not her fault, but it all adds up to zero quality time with
her super hot, scythe-carrying boyfriend, Echo.
etched with special runes by an evil Immortal, she understands why souls are
drawn to her. She makes the best of it by helping souls find closure while Echo
escorts them to the realm of the dead. Perfect partners, until a dark soul
visits Cora in the dead of the night and Echo decides her soul-helping days are
listen to Echo or follow her instincts. To make matters worse, other reapers
start stalking her, demanding she hand over the soul. Even her Valkyrie friends
think she’s gone too far. But something sinister is coming their way, and the
soul is the key to saving her town, her friends, and her relationship with
Echo. Can she convince Echo to see things her way before it’s too late?
The wonderfully talented and international bestselling author Ednah Walters has mastered the enticing elements of young adult romance and the paranormal and turned it up a notch. The cover isn’t the only thing down right beautiful and eye catching about the fifth book in her Runes series, Souls: Grimnirs Book 2.
From the moment the book starts you are tossed once more into the chaotic world of the Grimnirs, reapers for Hel, Valkeries who collect souls for Valhalla and Falkvang, and into the life of eighteen year old Cora. Life of a high school student will become even harder for Cora as her abilities to see souls and her desire to help them land her in grave danger, danger that will require all the help available to fend off.
Along with old and new casts Souls is jammed packed with loveable characters and enticing revelations not to mention heart throbbing moments that will have you giggling in delight. Raine and Torin from the Runes series take a more minor character role in the Grimnirs series, but help tie in both series nicely. But not to fret Cora, Echo, Dev, Rhys, Blaine, and more color the pages of this well written first person story.
The upbeat and refreshing dialogue keeps the pace leveled yet adds humor and a dash of steam to the already interesting dilemmas that arise. I laughed, I gasped, I wiggled in my chair with anticipation and rightfully so, Souls is everything it promises to be and more. Souls is a delightful read from the first word to the last.
Eye catching believable characters, down right heart bounding situations, and cliffhangers that keep you turning the page all make Souls and the Grimnirs series unable to put down. If there was a book that made one wish they could fill a page with the phrase ‘I loved it’ over and over again this one is it.
