Nothing can stop Raine Cooper when she wants something…
Raine finally knows that her gorgeous neighbor, Torin St. James, is a legend straight out of Norse mythology, and that her feelings for him are strong. Torin is crazy about Raine too, breaking the one rule he lives by: Never fall for a mortal. The problem is he no longer remembers her, his memories erased by Norns—Norse destiny deities—to punish her for defying them.
She will make Torin forget his one rule a second time and fall in love with her all over again.
But she quickly learns that well-laid plans do not work when dealing with deities and supernatural beings. Desperate, Raine makes choices that could not only tear her and Torin further apart, but lead to the destruction of everything and everyone she loves.
Where to Purchase:
His voice came to me as though from afar, hope slowly dying with each word from his mouth, until a giant gaping hole remained. I wanted to say something, but my tongue stayed glued to my mouth, which had gone dry. So I waited, heart pounding.
“Our paths must have crossed and you misunderstood,” he said gently.
“Misunderstood?” I whispered.
“The nature of our relationship.” He let go of the car door and shoved his hands in his front pants pockets again. “I make a point of not getting emotionally involved with Mortals. It is counterproductive. So if I did something to mislead you in any way, I’m sorry. It was not my intention.”
He paused, his jaw tense, his gaze steady. I wanted to look away, but I couldn’t, the finality of his previous words echoing in my head like my worst nightmare.
“I’ll not always be a Mortal,” I whispered. “I plan to start training as soon as possible.”
His eyebrows shot up. “Why?”
My mind went blank. Then jumbled thoughts slammed into my psyche. Just because he couldn’t remember didn’t give him the right to write us off. Anger slowly crept in and mingled with the pain. Misunderstood the nature of our relationship? Emotional involvement with me was counterproductive? He wasn’t willing to find out the truth or give me the benefit of the doubt. He just assumed he couldn’t have gotten involved with me, a Mortal.
“Why? What kind of question is that?” I asked through clenched teeth.
His brow shot up. “One you should be asking yourself.”
Hating that I had to look up at him, I stood. He didn’t even have the decency to step back. The heat from his body leaped and wrapped around me, messing with my head. Usually, I welcomed the effect he had on me. Now, it just pissed me off.
“I’ve asked it a gazillion times, and I keep coming back to me, my mother, my entire existence. My mother is a Valkyrie. Norns marked me when I was a child for their diabolical reason, so Valkyrie and Norn magic flows in my veins.”
He smirked. “So? That doesn’t mean you have to become one.”
“The Norns are after me, Torin. Just because you don’t remember things doesn’t mean I don’t. Dealing with them was horrible. I have to be prepared this time.”
He cocked his eyebrows. “I heard you stood up to them and accomplished something. Do it again. Show them you are one Mortal they can’t bully. Being a Valkyrie is a lonely, crappy existence. Being a Norn is even worse.”
(I received a ecopy of Immortals for the tour. I'm not a paid reviewer and these thoughts are my own.)
I hold true to the statement I made on goodreads..that was Immortal is 6 out of 5 star!!! Seriously this book was that amazing.. I could NOT put this book down! One of my new favorite! I love you Torin st.James! ( I don't care you are taken by Raine I still LOVE YOU :P ) Ahh okay I think I'm getting working up again just thinking about this book. It truly is a new favorite of mine!
This book should come with a warning: caution IMMORTALS is so amazing that you won't be able to put it down. Symptoms you may experience while reading- joy, happiness, love,and excitement. Side effect from reading the book to fast- sadness, a form depression, wishing you had read it slower, and extremely bummed that Torin St.James isn't real :)
Immortals in told in the POV of a girl named Raine ( this is a continuation of Runes, also told in Raine's POV- if you haven't read it yet, for shame..go pick it up NOW so you can get to Immortals :P ) We go through a journey with Raine as she learns things aren't always easy and telling truth from the lies proves to be tougher then she thought. Raine is a wonderful main character! She is never whinny or clingy..she is a refreshing fun character who is lucky to have one of the hottest book boyfriends out there. TORIN ST.JAMES!! Torin strikes again...In Immortals he was super sexy, cocky, and funny..Ahh Torin and Raine together was so sweet! I love it!! :)
All in all this book is a definite MUST READ!! If you have yet to read this series or haven't heard of it yet I would urge you to check it out! You won't be sorry. This series is AWESOME! Ednah is a wonderful author, truly one of my favorites! :)
