Meet Eirik Baldurson...You're heart will succumb to his charms!

Image & description from the author.
Eirik Baldurson—son of Baldur, God of Light—failed living as a Mortal. He lost the girl of his dreams and nearly got his friends killed. Now, he's gone to the underworld to meet the mother he’s never known. Torn between his duty to her and the man he used to be, Eirik struggles to find himself, until a witch appears in his world. Feisty and stubborn, she is a reminder of everything good he left behind.

Celestia Devereaux proudly attends a charter high school for “gifted” teenagers who embrace magic. Witches. However, she keeps a terrible secret—a prediction that she would one day be responsible for massive destruction and death. Though Celestia uses her clairvoyant abilities to help people, she worries that it is just a matter of time before she goes over to the dark side.

Her world changes when she unexpectedly astral projects to a place she didn’t believe existed and meets a tortured man who needs her help. Will helping him cause her fears to come true, or will he sacrifice everything to save her?

My Thoughts:
I've been reading Ednah's books since she first started.  I have fallen in love with her characters probably as much as she has.  When you're this invested in a series it's amazing to see the changes in some of the characters.  Eirik started out as a supporting character in Raine Coopers story Runes.  While I knew he always had a rich & complex story of his own I could NEVER have imagined it would be like this!  Eirik has evolved from the "All-American", boy next door into a force to be reckoned with.  While I'm a little sad to see his easy-going personality change; I am LOVING the new, in your face, take no crap, tough guy he's become.  The wonderful thing about Eirik's story is you also get some great insight on his parents & why they are what they are.  

Then we are introduced to Celestia Devereaux.  A powerful witch, who only wants to help Eirik even though he fights her every step of the way.  She shows Eirik there's more to his life than vengeance & battle.  Celestia (I love that name!) is brave & resourceful.  She's over come some traumatic experiences that seem to have made her empathetic to Eirik's parental issues.  I can't wait to see what more of her story we get to explore, as well as, their story together.  

Ednah Walters is an amazing author who's books include:

The Runes Series:
Grimnir (Cora's story)
Souls (Cora's story)
Demons (Eirik's story)

The Guardian Legacy Series:
Awakened (Prequel to Betrayed)
