Runes by Ednah Walters

Runes by Ednah Walters

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.

When I bought Runes I didn't think I would like it very much. When I read about Torin St. James and it said something about dark sexiness and mysterious, I knew that I would have to buy the book and I am so glad I did. Raine's life has been in turmoil ever since her father disappeared in a plane accident. She believes that her mother is starting to lose it because her mother still believes that her father is still alive. Her best friend/unofficial boyfriend might have to move away and now a mysterious new neighbor has moved into the house next to hers and he's definitely different and….drop dead gorgeous and his name is Torin St. James. She is feeling something for Torin, but knows she has to stay away at least in the beginning. But now she is starting to see things moving tattoos and strange markings. Raine is discovering that she is connected with the new people who have moved to town and especially to Torin, but what will happen when she finally uncovers the secrets Torin wants to share and Raine might not want to know after all? And someone special has come see Raine and her mother. I want a Torin!!! He is drop dead gorgeous, sexy, and definitely mysterious. Something every girl wants in a guy. This definitely remind me a little bit of Cassandra Claire's, The Mortal Instruments, but it is dealing with Norse mythology. The are Valkyries, runes, Gods, and sexy, mysterious neighbors. How could this book not be a total swoon-worthy book?

Here he is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
