BLURB

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.




REVIEW
I loved the first book in this series and I couldn't wait to read Immortals to see where Ednah Walters had taken Raine and Torin in this second installment.  Immortals picks up shortly after Runes leaves off.  Raine has had the battle of her life, gone head to head with the Norns to fight for Torin, and the now Torin can't  remember her.  She is determined to help him remember and help him fall in love with her all over again,which is harder on her emotionally than she thought, especially when you have every girl in school wanting a piece of him to.  She discovers that her best friend Eirik isn't who she thought she was and he was and that she needs to protect him.  Meanwhile, she is to start her training to become a Valkyrie, and she isn't quite sure just who she can trust.  As the truth is revealed, Raine has to make some tough choices, but she is willing to do what it takes to save those that she loves, while coming to terms with who and what she is.

If you are a fan of Norse Mythology, then Immortals is a book you should definitely check out.  I loved the first book in this series, and this book was even better.  I loved seeing Raine grow and develop into quite the heroine in this book.  She is determined to protect those that she loves and does it fiercely.  Then there is Torin St. James, who I totally fell in love with - totally hot, bad boy, attitude, he has it all.  I loved seeing where Ednah Walters took Raine and Torin's relationship in this book and the romance was quite hot.  We also get to see the secondary characters from the first book that we have come to know and love.  There is plenty of action with some twists and turns along the way that keep you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next.  I loved the way that Ednah Walters has woven the mythology and romance together in a contemporary setting.  The ending was great to.  This series is really a fantastic read that I thoroughly enjoyed and most definitely recommend.
