Review: Witches by Ednah Walters - Book 6 in the Runes Series

Image & Description from

Raine Cooper’s life should be perfect. She’s an Immortal Seeress, most likely to be elected Prom Queen, and envied by the girls at Kayville High for dating the dreamy quarterback, Torin St. James. Instead, she’s haunted by the smug facial expressions the Norns’ wore during their last meeting.

As a Norn-In-Training, Raine crossed the line long ago when she sided with the Valkyries and Mortal Witches. When the Norns return with demands of their own, Raine feels trapped. Torin tries to convince her that the Norns are manipulating her, but she refuses to listen. At least until the Norns’ demands focus on someone she loves. When Raine refuses to cooperate with them, their punishment is swift and gut-wrenching, turning her pain into fury.

Raine plots revenge on a massive scale and makes deals with unsavory allies. Her goal? Total destruction of the entire Norn race. Raine’s only hope of salvation is Torin, but how much will he sacrifice to save her?

My Thoughts:

If I could just take a long vacation in Ednah's imagination I think my life would be complete!  She has once again brought the world of Runes, Valkyries, Immortals & Grimnirs crashing into mine with all the adventure, magic & gorgeous characters the series is known for.  I never could have imagined after reading the first book that Raine would grow & evolve into the kick-ass heroine that she is.  Torin truly has met his soul's match in every way possible.  Nothing in the entire universe can detour his love for her, including the schemes of the Norns.  They soon find out Raine is not a weapon they can use & manipulate, but a force to be reckoned with.  This book does overlap with Souls (Grimnirs #2/ Runes #5) but Ednah has done a superb job weaving the two together.  Once you start this series you will be addicted  like a hipster to Starbucks!  

Ednah Walters is one of my all time favorite authors and a sweet friend as well.  She grew up reading Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys and dreaming of one day writing her own stories. She is a stay-at-home mother of five humans and two American short-hair cats (one of which has ADHD) and a husband. When she is not writing, she’s at the gym doing Zumba or doing things with her family, reading, traveling or online chatting with fans.

Ednah is the author of The Guardian Legacy series, a YA fantasy series about children of the fallen angels, who fight demons and protect mankind. AWAKENED, the prequel was released by Pill Hill Press in September 2010 with rave reviews. BETRAYED, book one in the series was released by her new publisher Spencer Hill Press in June 2012 and HUNTED, the third installment, was released March 2013. She’s working on the next book in the series, FORGOTTEN. Visit her at

Under the pseudonym E. B. Walters, Ednah writes contemporary romance. SLOW BURN, the first contemporary romance with suspense, was released in April 2011.
