Blog Tour and Giveaway: Immortals (Runes #2) by Ednah Walters

Immortals (Runes #2) by Ednah Walters.
Audience/Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal.
Publication: August 5th 2013 by Firetrail Publishing.
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.

Follow the tour here:

Interview with Eirik

Kelly walks the short distance to the football field. She searches the clumps of students and
sees his signature Chex Mix curls next to Raine’s dark-brown hair. Football players are
stretching in the field and the cheerleaders are doing their drills on the side. Even though
Eirik and Raine are talking and laughing, Raine’s eyes are on the players while his are on
the cheerleaders. Occasionally, he lifts his camera and clicks. I study the cheerleaders and
Kelly *stops just below them to catch her breath*: Hi, guys.
Eirik (grins): Hey. *looks at Raine* You were just leaving.
Cora: No, I wasn’t. Hi, Kelly. Do you want to interview me too?
Eirik: No, she doesn’t. Seriously, go away.
Raine *smacks the back of his head*: Polite much? Planning to talk about me behind my
Eirik *makes a face*: Self-absorbed much?
Raine *wrinkles her nose*: See you tonight.
Kelly: I don’t mind interviewing the two of you.
Raine *chuckles*: No, it’s okay. I’m just messing with him. I have lessons anyway. *glances at
Eirik* Dinner. My place. Be there or else.
Eirik *fakes a shudder then waves when she reaches the bottom of the bleachers and
glances at us*: She is such a worrywart.
Kelly: Why is she worried? Are you okay?
Eirik *shrugs*: I’m fine. She tends to see things that are not there. Okay. Let’s start. What do
you want to know?
Kelly: When did Cora join the cheerleaders?
Eirik: She didn’t. She’s interviewing them about someone who died recently. Her blog entries
have gotten darker. I don’t know why. We are not here to talk about her, are we?
Kelly: She’s a big part of your life, so yes, I would like to talk about her too.
Eirik *sighs*: There’s nothing to talk about. She’s pretending I don’t exist right now.
Kelly *frowns*: Why?
Eirik: I don’t know. I don’t understand women.
Kelly: Maybe she doesn’t like your friendship with Raine.
Eirik *chuckles*: That’s ridiculous. Raine is with Torin.
Kelly: SO you don’t have feelings for Raine?
Eirik: I’ll always love her. She’s my best friend and was my first crush.
Kelly: Maybe Cora wants to be your best friend and your crush. Every girl wants to be best
friends with their boyfriend.
Eirik *shrugs*: Any woman who wants to be with me must accept Raine or no deal.
Kelly: So have you kissed her? Cora?
Eirik *stares at the Cora, eyes narrowed*: nope
Kelly: Do you want to?
Eirik: What do you think?
Kelly: Use 3 words to describe Cora
Eirik *grins*: Gorgeous, stubborn, infuriating,
Kelly: What do you think about Torin?
Eirik: As long as he treats Raine right, I’m cool with him.
Eirik *shrugs*: Don’t know him well enough to form an opinion.
Eirik *eyes narrows*: Don’t like them. Norns included.
Kelly: But your parents—
Eirik: Not open for discussion. I should go. I’m done taking pictures. I can walk you to your car.
Kelly *stands*: Just a few more questions. What is your favorite music, actor, color, thing to
Eirik *makes a face*: Rock, Benedict Cumberbatch, blue, photography. *lifts the camera and
takes a picture of her.* Now I have one of you.
Kelly *smiles*: I guess that covers it. Maybe I can catch up with Raine.
Eirik *laughs*: Good luck. She’s using portals now.

Holy Hel! Where to begin! So much happens; so much to keep up with and one twist after another. I thought I had it figured out but I did NOT have it right at all! The characters kept me interested and non stop action. This is not just a love story but it covers everything guys want in a book too; action, sports, death, mystery, suspense and mythology. For the girls, there is a love story, family, loss and friendship. You want it - you got it all right here folks!

We start off a couple weeks after the end of the last book. Torrin doesn't remember Raine. But we all know that he has to get them back somehow. Otherwise, we would be angry readers. Torrin does slowly remember things. Just not the memories that made them special. He remembers her nickname first. He is also a jerk and Raine decides she should just cut her losses and move on. But she can't and Torrin is miserable but he doesn't know why.

Raine's dad is back and he starts running again. Raine worries about him because he looks sickly but she runs with him. She loves that he is back and is cooking again too.

Raine seems to be the social outcast at school. Everyone saw what happened at the swim meet and think she is a witch. Someone is writing stuff on her locker about her being a witch. Raine only has Cora and Eirick as friends.. Andris has his memories and seems to be trying to get Torrin and her back together. Go figure!

Raine's mom has her memories intact but Raine isn't always forthcoming in everything that is going on. Speaking of not saying things- if Raine knew who to trust maybe a lot of stuff could have been prevented. But aren't we all like that in real life? Not saying things because we don't want to hurt someone or betray someone or don't know who to trust?

The Norns aren’t done with Raine either and they are manipulating things at every turn. Who to trust? Sometimes she learns things from them that no one else tells her. Hmmm...

Then there is Lavinia, Raine’s trainer, who is teaching her all things Immortal. She is pretty and polite and sometimes wonders if she isn’t someone doing harm around town too.

Eirick.... poor guy. He just has no luck. Something about his family is what is keeping everyone keeping secrets. But something is wrong with him and things are getting worse. What you ask? I am not telling.

Lastly, Cora. Cora and Raine are friends but sometimes things are strained. Raine just doesn’t know what to do but she keeps trying to put Cora and Eirick together.

Put that all together with some football scenes, kissing, waterfalls, extra homework, more kissing, running, motorcycle riding, Evil norns, portals everywhere, more kissing, lost friendships, new characters, family bonding time and you got a great story. But let me tell you, the end will blow you away!
