Runes (Runes series Book 1) by Ednah Walters Book Review:
Ancient mythology gets the YA treatment in Ednah Walters first book in the Runes series, “Runes”. In this incredible book, young 17-year old
Raine Cooper finds herself dealing with a full plate of problems, from her father’s mysterious disappearance to her mother’s increasingly erratic
behavior and the possibility of her best guy friend and crush moving away. Things are tough for this average teen, until her life becomes anything
but ordinary when she meets her new neighbor, Torrin St. James, a mysterious young man that drives her towards him despite her best judgement.
After she is saved by him when he uses a mysterious mark to heal her, she soon learns that Torrin isn’t exactly what he says he is, and she
becomes determined to find out what he is, and inadvertently becomes involved in an ancient mythology filled with death and darkness the likes
of which she’s never dealt with before.
This book is fast paced, and does an excellent job of blending the teenage drama with mythology that has existed for thousands of years. The
story deals equally with the supernatural elements of the story as it does the tale of three young kids who has their friendship tested time and
again by these unnatural occurrences. With each chapter as more mysteries are solved, even more are unveiled, and by the end of the first book a
whole series worth of mythology is laid out, which fans of the YA genre will be thrilled to dive into. This is a story not to be missed, so be
sure to check out Runes by Ednah Walters today!
