Review Of Souls (Grimnirs Book #2, Runes Series Book #5) By Ednah Walters



SOULS




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?

Review

Souls is a roller coaster ride that grips you and doesn't let go, not even with a mind blowing twist that has you reeling until the very end. Just when Cora thought it was safe to walk the halls of her school... BAM, Ednah Walters let's you know that not everything that dies necessarily stays dead. Ednah knows how to build the suspense in her books until it is a powder keg about to explode.

Cora Jemison takes her new "job" very seriously. She feels she has a sense of purpose when she is helping souls get closure before they are reaped by Echo. What she isn't prepared for is a dark soul with a mysterious link to Echo to visit her in the dead of night. Cora feels she has to help this dark soul in order to bring peace to Echo and the rest of the Grimnirs and Valkyries.What Cora failed to see was how much of a strain this would put on her and Echo's relationship.

Echo has gone along with Cora's efforts to help souls move on. That all changes when he finds out she has encountered a dark soul whom he knows very well. Echo is determined to stop Cora from helping anymore souls including this dark soul. Echo only wants to protect Cora but his stubbornness only ends up pushing Cora further away. 

I wish I could say more but I might anger the Norns for revealing too much and they might erase my existence....lol. This book starts out intense and only gets more so the longer you read it until the very last page. On a scale from 1-5 I give Souls a 10. Giving this book a 5 would not do it justice because Ednah packed so much action into this book and such a mind blowing twist a 5 felt like a slap in her face....lol. If you are looking for an author who knows how to tell a story that keeps you hook from beginning to end then look no further than Ednah Walters. She is a sensational author whom is an automatic buy for me. If you are a fan of Runes Series and the Grimnirs than you need to run out and grab your copy of Souls. If you are new to this series than you really need to pick up Runes, Immortals, Grimnirs, and Seeress, as well as, Souls. Let Cora and Echo show you what it is like to live in their world one soul at a time.
