Review Tour: Souls by Ednah Walters

WARNING: This is CORA'S story: This book may be considered NA (new adult) because it contains some swearing, violence and sex scenes: Suitable for ages 17 and up. A Clean Version will also be available on Amazon.
Eighteen-year-old Cora Jemison knows what it’s like to date a soul reaper. There are no Friday night movies, no school dances, and no stolen kisses between classes. It totally sucks! What makes it even worse, souls pop up when she least expects it. The last one is not her fault, but it all adds up to zero quality time with her super hot, scythe-carrying boyfriend, Echo.

Since Cora was etched with special runes by an evil Immortal, she understands why souls are drawn to her. She makes the best of it by helping souls find closure while Echo escorts them to the realm of the dead. Perfect partners, until a dark soul visits Cora in the dead of the night and Echo decides her soul-helping days are over.

Cora can either listen to Echo or follow her instincts. To make matters worse, other reapers start stalking her, demanding she hand over the soul. Even her Valkyrie friends think she’s gone too far. But something sinister is coming their way, and the soul is the key to saving her town, her friends, and her relationship with Echo. Can she convince Echo to see things her way before it’s too late.

My Thoughts:

Another juicy master piece from Ednah Walters!  Just like Grimnirs, Souls is filled with excitement, suspense and mouth watering characters.  Cora, in all her stubborn glory, is an equal opportunity soul helper.  She doesn't judge what a soul has done during their life, she only wants to help them get closure.  Echo tolerates it until his past and Cora collide. I admired the way Cora stood her ground.  She's adapted so well to her new life as an Immortal and a medium.  I loved the way the Grimnirs & Valkyries worked together and how their stories seemed to weave together so effortlessly.  I hope we get to see more of Dev in future books.  Every time I read a book in these amazing series I learn new and interesting pieces folklore. In this story I learned a little about Celtic people.  While you don't have to read this series to keep up with the Runes series you get so much more if you do!  I can't wait to read the next books in both series.
