One lost love.

One lost best friend.

One host soul reaper. 


Straight out of the psych ward, Cora just wants her life to be normal. She doesn’t want to see souls or the reapers collecting them. The guy she’s loved from a distance for years moves away without saying goodbye. So yes, she’s nursing a serious heartbreak. It’s no wonder love is the last thing on her mind when Echo storms into her life. 


The chemistry between them is mind-blowing. The connection defies logic. Too bad Echo is the poster boy for everything she hates in a guy—hot, beautiful,and cocky. He is also a soul reaper. A Grimnir. A genial pain-in-the-butt. Being around him makes her feel alive than she's ever felt before. But more important,  the souls leave her alone when he is around.



Echo is perfect for her. Echo might even be her soul-mate. There is only one problem. Echo is a freaking soul reaper. A Grimnir. The very thing she wants out of her life. Maybe normal is overrated because Cora wants it all. Answers. Love. A life. You see, once you fall for a Grimnir, your life will never be the same again. 












Excerpt: 


“You, doll-face. Why are you having a shitty day?”

I glared ahead. “Because you are screwing with my head. How come you keep saying things I don’t remember?”

“I told you. The Norns put a whammy on you.”

“Norns?”

“Deities of destiny. Mean, bitter hags. They control the destiny of all beings—Mortals, Immortals, even the gods. Interestingly, I just found out why they targeted you and erased your memories.”

“Why?” Not that I believed his rambling.

“Say please.”

I was tempted to ignore him, but something weird had happened to me and I wanted answers. I eased the car into a parking spot across from my school, switched off the engine, and turned to look at Echo. He was dressed in all leather again today. I realized that what I’d assumed was a leather shirt was actually a vest of some kind. Once again, he wore fingerless gloves and silver Gothic rings with weird markings.

“Please,” I said through clenched teeth.

He touched his lips. “I want a kiss, too.”

I narrowed my eyes. “Why are you such a tool all the time? You think this is fun for me? Not remembering things? Waking up one morning and seeing souls? Ending up in a psych ward, where they pumped me full of drugs, then coming home only to be met by you, a reaper?”

“Grimnir,” he corrected then frowned. “Are those the fake memories the Norns gave you? Psych ward? That’s just wrong.”

“I was in a psych ward,” I snapped.

He raised his hands. “Okay. No need to be snippy.”

“I’m not—”

He covered my mouth then smirked when I bit his hand. I bore down until I tasted blood. He didn’t even wince. His grin broadened instead.

“Drink my blood, doll-face. Bond with me for eternity.”

The thought was scary. I pushed his hand away and wiped my mouth. “Ew. Can your blood do that?”

He laughed.

“Will you be serious for even a second?” I asked.

“Don’t you want to be mine forever?”

“Ew, no.” I made a face. “I don’t even like you.”

My Review:

This book was amazing. It deserves 11 stars for its impressive performance in the Rune series. And lets not forget why this book was written, ECHO. He is amazingly hot. Almost as hot as Torin, and that is saying something. Echo has stolen my heart which is filled with my book boyfriends and made a spot for himself. You hear of Echo in the second book, Immortals, but now you get to meet him in all of his sexiness. 

I know this book is all about Cora, but you get a real taste of her, instead of how Raine talks her. She is almost the same in all three books, but this gives you an inside clue to what is going on in her head during all of this. She made a great heroine who unraveled the puzzle a piece at a time. And because she is Cora, she caught on to things pretty quickly. Although sometimes it took a few minutes when it came to Echo. 

I have been a fan of Ednah Walters for about two years and with her, you never know what to expect. She takes you through a roller coaster of emotions and at the end leaves you satisfied yet craving for more. I can't wait for the third book to come out and I hope it gets here soon.
