Netgalley Review - Runes (Runes #1) by Ednah Walters @ednahwalters

Runes #1
by Ednah Walters

Goodreads blurb:  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 are she and her friends in danger, she must choose a side, but the wrong choice will cost Raine her life.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 unicorns - I loved it!!
***Received ebook through Netgalley for an honest review

The cover is absolutely break taking and perfect, and I have eyed this series for a while.  And when I saw it on Netgalley, I jumped at the chance to read it.  I try to only select books that interest and intrigue me because there are tons of books out there, so why force yourself to read something that doesn’t interest you.  :)

Okay when I started reading this book, I liked it but thought okay this is a typical teen drama galore.  This book totally snuck up on me and sucked me in where I couldn’t put it down.  I loved it so much I went and bought book 2 & 2.5 because I have to know what happens next.  And I will probably buy book 3 too ;)

Raine is an awesome girl full of spirit who doesn’t take anything from anyone, and you know this is my favorite type.  I love my heroine is a warrior ;)  So I totally fell in love with Raine, Cora, Eirik, and Torin.  Raine’s mom is a great character too, but she wasn’t a main character.

Torin is this arrogant and sexy man who challenges all of Raine’s beliefs and values and totally twists her up inside.  Eirik and Cora are her best friends and stick with her through everything.  This book has everything to keep your attention with magic, attacks, runes, a missing father, jealousy, and lots of action and drama.

I hoping that I can add this series to my classroom library when I can afford the print books :)  I think the kids will love them :)

Be looking for my thoughts on book 2 and 3 in the future :)

Interested in reading???
