Have you checked out the amazing Runes and Grimnirs stories from Ednah Walters yet?
WARNING: This is CORA'S story: This book may be considered NA (new adult) because it contains some swearing, violence and sex scenes: Suitable for ages 17 and up. A Clean Version will also be available on Amazon.
Eighteen-year-old Cora Jemison knows what it’s like to date a soul reaper. There are no Friday night movies, no school dances, and no stolen kisses between classes. It totally sucks! What makes it even worse, souls pop up when she least expects it. The last one is not her fault, but it all adds up to zero quality time with her super hot, scythe-carrying boyfriend, Echo.
Since Cora was etched with special runes by an evil Immortal, she understands why souls are drawn to her. She makes the best of it by helping souls find closure while Echo escorts them to the realm of the dead. Perfect partners, until a dark soul visits Cora in the dead of the night and Echo decides her soul-helping days are over.
Cora can either listen to Echo or follow her instincts. To make matters worse, other reapers start stalking her, demanding she hand over the soul. Even her Valkyrie friends think she’s gone too far. But something sinister is coming their way, and the soul is the key to saving her town, her friends, and her relationship with Echo. Can she convince Echo to see things her way before it’s too late?
I absolutely love this world that the author has created, and just can't get enough. The storytelling is phenomenal and just grabs you from the moment you start reading and doesn't let go. Everything flows so smoothly, you don't even realize how much time is passing by while you're engrossed in the story.
I adore the entire cast of characters-and Echo most of all. The range of emotion he is capable of showing is surprising and welcome in an alpha male character like his. I've been reading since the start of the Runes series, so I am really invested in all of these characters.
This story concentrates on Cora and it adds dimension to the entire Runes and Grimnirs storylines while giving us a view of things from a human-turned Immortal POV. We get to learn so much more about Cora's situation, dark souls, plus we get plenty of suspense, action and some really intense scenes between Cora and Echo. All of which will have you riveted to the pages-and my bet is that like me, you'll be craving more stories from this incredibly rich and vibrant world-and counting the days until you can read more.
A story and series that keeps living up to expectations and doesn't disappoint, Souls is an exceptional 5-star read that I highly recommend. For the best enjoyment of the book, I would definitely suggest reading the rest of the Runes series before starting this story. Enjoy!
