Sysnopsis: 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?
Another great story about Cora! She is by far the best character in the whole series. I can’t get enough of her independent attitude and the way she wants to help people. Especially the ones that no one wants to help. She has a big heart and she is very honest. I can’t really tell you a whole lot without spoiling it, I mean, after all it’s the fifth book!
All I can really tell you is that Echo is the tits! He has qualities of both an alpha and a beta. He is a hard ass when it comes to Cora’s well fair if anyone messes with her. He is also very devoted to his job. He treats Cora so good. He cooks for her and wants to buy a house with her just so he can wake up next to her in the morning. ::Sigh:: Isn’t that romantic? And he isn’t afraid to express himself regarding his feelings about her. I just love a man who is secure in himself. It’s so sexy.
That’s all I can say without ruining for you guys. Actually, one more thing, this is a side story to the main one. This is actually book 5 of the Runes series even though it says book 2 on the cover.
I have decided to use this as one of my challenge books as well. I t can be catagorized as a YA Romance. I got this challenge from Just Another Girl and Her Books Check her out if you want to participate.
