BLURB

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.

EXCERPT



Excerpt 2

“Now see what you made me do.” I eased off the brake. Ahead, Dad’s truck was nowhere in sight.

“Sorry about that,” Echo said, but he didn’t sound or look it. He reached out and lifted the hair on my right shoulder.

I swatted at his hand. “Stop that.”

“Can’t help it.” He planted a kiss on my neck. The car swayed as I momentarily lost control.
“I’m serious. Quit messing with me, Echo.”

“You smell amazing.” He trailed kisses up my neck to my ear and inhaled.

The sensations that invaded my body were downright frightening. Not even Eirik had ever made me feel like this. If I could forget Echo was a lunatic and I was losing my mind, I would have enjoyed the sensation.

I reached up and tried to push his head away, but it was like moving a boulder. Worse, my hand sunk into his hair. It was silky, and for one brief moment, I wanted to run my fingers through it, maybe hold his head in place and savor the moment.

He bit my ear. I squealed and, once again, lost control of the car. “Dang it, Echo. We could get into an accident.”

“But we self-heal.”

I self-healed, too? Nice. No, not nice. I refused to start buying into his crazy assumptions. “I could hurt someone.”

“There’re just Mortals. If it’s their time to go, it’s their time to go. No force of nature can stop that. No, that’s not true. Norns could. You look breathtaking this morning. Love that shade of red on you. Very vampy. What is it you once told me? Red gives you the extra oomph when you are having a shitty day.”

The only person who knew that was Raine. “Who told you that?”

MY REVIEW

Grimnirs rocks the Runes series with an incredible storyline, hot guys, and intense action!

The Runes series continues with the third installment called Grimnirs, featuring Cora and Echo.

Cora has just arrived home from PMI, and trying to adjust to seeing souls.  She becomes confused when everyone at school acts as though she has only been gone for a week, when actually its been a lot longer.  She is told about things she did, which never could have happened.  As she just goes along with what she's told, she's in her room when Echo arrives, acting like they are lovers.  She finally convinces him she doesn't remember him, and that's when he realises the Norns must have erased her memory.  Then the real adventure begins.

I can't say how much I LOVE this series.  Grimnirs takes a different spin by focusing on Cora and Echo instead of Raine and Torin.  We learn more about Echo, which I feel will be vital as the series progresses.  Cora's attraction to Echo is undeniable.  Echo is mysterious.  Of course, our favorite characters are all present throughout the story. Cora learns more about the world she has no choice to accept.  The whole plot is brilliant how it ties in with the previous installments, opening the world to a whole new level of adventure. It's the complete package with steamy romance, loyal friendships, alliances, intense action, and unexpected twists and turns.  This series being one of my favorites, you won't be disappointed in Grimnirs.  

Gorgeous Valkyries and Grimnirs, need I say more?  You will definitely find a new book boyfriend here.
