Description: 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. So Raine comes up with a plan...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.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Well, I’m hooked. The first book intrigued me with the Norse mythology and made me want to know what happens next. This book kept up the intrigue, saved its secrets until the end, and let’s not forget to mention hot guy yummyness.
Raine is becoming quite the heroine and we are finding out just how special she is. I’m really liking her – she’s so strong-willed and refuses to give up. Not on Torin, not on her friends, and not on her family. She will do everything to protect those she loves, and I really admire that in a YA heroine.
Of course, there’s Torin. *drool* Hottie, British accent, brave, honorable Valkyrie and he is seriously awesome. The book starts off with his memory wiped, so Raine has to make him fall for her all over again. Let me tell you, I was a fan in the first book but this book, yea. Great job Raine! Get it girl.
We dive deeper into Norse mythology and get introduced to Deities and more trouble-causing Norns. I really found the story interesting and I didn’t at all figure out who was really behind it all. There’s some heartbreak, too in this series. I’m hoping for some good news in the next book. And more awesomeness from Raine.
