YA Book Revew: Runes by Ednah Walters

If you’re looking for a new paranormal series to delve into, Runes is pretty stinkin’ good. 

Raine Cooper’s life is pretty ordinary.  Her best friend is on his way to being her boyfriend.  She’s on the swim team at school and is close with her teammates.  The only weird thing that’s ever happened in her life is the plane crash that took her father’s life.  Of course, they never found his body and Raine’s mother refuses to believe he’s gone.

I mean, that’s a lot to deal with, but it’s somewhat normal, right?

All until Torin moves in next door.  And Torin is one of those meltingly-written YA bad boys that you want to push Raine into so you can live vicariously.  Oh. Yeah.

But then, there are those weird runes that appear all over his body and the 3 new swimmers who have the same affliction.  Oh, and one of them wants to kill Raine while another wants to recruit her into some secret cult.

What’s a girl to do?

I thoroughly enjoyed this book because it deviates from the tired zombie/vampire/werewolf schtick and heads straight into Norse gods.  And if you don’t know I have a thing for Norse gods, you’ve never read my book, Frog’s Princess.

If you want paranormal that is new, fresh, and full of humor and action, Runes is sure to please.  If you don’t know much about Norse gods, this series is setting up to teach you a bit about them.  And not just Thor and Loki, either.  We have The Avengers for that.  (Thank you, Hollywood, for the eye candy.)

Love wins,

KT

  1. Interesting series. Is it more Norse gods meet Twilight, or Norse gods meet Percy Jackson?

    • Nothing compares to the awfulness of Twilight. Haha But more that. Definitely the romance is a big character but it’s not the only character. Plus, Walters can actually write. ☺
