Welcome to the Living Fictitiously stop on the RUNES blog tour hosted by Xpresso Book Tours.  Click HERE to see the full blog tour schedule!

by Ednah Walters
Publication date: May 20, 2013
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance

Seventeen-year-old Raine Cooper has enough on her plate dealing with her father’s disappearance, her mother’s erratic behavior and the possibility of her boyfriend relocating. The last thing she needs is Torin St. James—a mysterious new neighbor with a wicked smile and uncanny way of reading her.

Raine is drawn to Torin’s dark sexiness against her better judgment, until he saves her life with weird marks and she realizes he is different. But by healing her, Torin changes something inside Raine. Now she can’t stop thinking about him. Half the time, she’s not sure whether to fall into his arms or run.

Scared, she sets out to find out what Torin is. But the closer she gets to the truth the more she uncovers something sinister about Torin. What Torin is goes back to an ancient mythology and Raine is somehow part of it. Not only is she and her friends in danger, she must choose a side, but the wrong choice will cost Raine her life.

Please give it up for my most favoritest lady in the wild and wonderful world of books, Ms. Ednah Walters, because well.... she's done it again. Yep, she rocked my socks off and left my chin on the floor. There may also have been some drooling over the oh-so-sexy Torin St. James and some huffing and puffing because I have to actually wait for book 2. I'm slightly impatient because I loved this book so much. But, I would expect nothing less from the fabulous Ms. Walters. (she might be cringing over me calling her Ms. Walters *giggles*). 

So, as many of you know I'm a totally fan of the Fitzgerald Family series, which is Ednah's Contemporary Adult Romance series (ps. she writes it under E.B. Walters and you should totally check it out), so it's probably not a surprise to you all that I would read her brand spankin' new New Adult Paranormal Romance. Let's face it, the woman knows her romance, and her audience. This book (soon to be series) is geared toward a bit of a younger audience with the characters being in High School.  Don't let the "New Adult" tag get to you, it's not synonymous with "smut". There is NO smut in this book. 

Now, there is SOME VERY SEXY MAN CANDY! Well, roughly (and I stress roughly) 19 year old sexy man candy. We're talking black hair and blue eyes (my favorite combination) on a Harley. Yeppers, this bad boy rides a motorcycle... also one of my favorite bad boy things.  And he has the cutest nickname for Raine. No I'm not telling you! You have to read it silly!

The thing that stood out the most for me about this book is the paranormal aspect. Yes, there are a lot of paranormal books out there, but the paranormal aspect in RUNES was so different from what I've read before. I don't want to give the surprise away, but I will tell you that I couldn't even begin to figure out what paranormal "thing" (for lack of a better term) Torin was or what his world revolved around. I tend to be a little disappointed when I can figure it out on my own or I feel like I know what's coming, but that was SO not an issue with this book. Ednah has done an absolutely fantastic job with this story!

Go on... you know you want to one-click it. And you definitely should. Every possibly buy link you could need is below, and I promise, you won't be sorry. And if you're one of those people who get green just thinking about how long you'll have to wait for the next book in a series, no worries, Ednah assures me that book 2, IMMORTALS will be out in July! So like I said... GET ON IT ALREADY! And please, let me know what you think and share the love! 


EDNAH WALTERS 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, will be released April 2013.
