One lost love.
One lost best friend.
One hot soul reaper.
Straight out of the psyche ward, Cora just wants her life to be normal. She doesn’t want to see souls or the reapers collecting them. The love of her life, the guy she’s loved from a distance for years, has moved 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. It doesn’t help that Echo is the poster boy for everything she hates in a guy—hot, beautiful, and cocky. A general pain-in-the-butt. Being around him makes her feel more 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 beings 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.
“You should be scared,” Torin added slowly. “Her powers are emerging fast. Within a year, you’ll tremble in her presence.”
Echo sighed melodramatically and studied my face, his unusual eyes gleaming. “So you’re saying I can’t have this one?”
“You don’t touch her. Ever. Let’s go.”
Echo laughed. Then he was gone. The other two Valkyries followed him. I didn’t look, but I felt rather than saw them leave. I blew out air.
The blonde who’d stayed seated during the entire exchange, got up and walked toward me. She stopped by my chair. “I saw your face, Cora. I know you can see and hear us. Don’t be scared. You’re not going crazy or anything like that. I want to help you.”
“Why?” I heard myself ask and cringed. I didn’t dare look at her.
“My sister did this to you. If she hadn’t marked you, you wouldn’t be seeing us now.”
Marked me? I looked up and our eyes met. Hers were filled with pity, which annoyed me. I hated being pitied.
“Why would a Valkyrie mark me?” I asked.
“She was an Immortal, like me, not a Valkyrie. I’ll text you,” the girl said.
Raine! I whipped around and saw her. She looked terrible, her eyes red and hair a mess. She wore the same clothes she’d worn to school. I jumped to my feet, rushed past the blonde, as though she wasn’t there, and hugged Raine. Had she seen me talk to myself? I leaned back and studied her face.
“How’s he doing?” I asked.
Her chin trembled. “He’s still in a coma. He looks bad. Really bad.”
I held her and fought my own tears. Damn my tear ducts. Through a haze, I saw Raine’s mother talking and smiling with my parents. What the hell was wrong with her? How could she be smiling at a time like his? I never understood her. No one could be this chipper all the time. Even when Raine’s father had gone missing, she’d carried on like he’d gone on an extended vacation or something. When our eyes met.
“Thanks for coming,” Raine mumbled after what seemed like forever.
“You’d do the same if Dad was…” I sighed. No need to spell it out. “Do you want me to get you anything?”
“No. I’m just happy you came.” She glanced over my shoulder, and I followed her gaze to see the two male Valkyries walking toward us. They didn’t have runes this time, but their hair looked disheveled. Andris had a rip on his shirt. A hollow feeling settled in my stomach.
