but it’s hard to control a teenager,
let alone a powerful one…
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. She must repair the battle grounds and wipe out the memories of every Mortal witness. 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?
Review:Is there anyone who doesn't adore Ednah's books??? This installment to the series is my new book crush! It was amazing! I didn't think she could top the others in the series, but the author continues to write nothing short of excellence.
Raine and Torin are so cute in this book! I have loved them since the beginning and really liked how they developed in Witches. Torin St. James is once again my new book crush.
The supporting characters are enjoyable. I liked getting to know Ingrid a little more and liked seeing the softer side of Andris. Echo and Cora weren't as present in this installment and I was a little upset with Cora not being included in a certain plot twist.
Even that wasn't enough to put a dent in how awesome this book was. I loved every minute of it and can't wait for more. I'm glad to hear there will be more, right Ednah?? *wink, wink*
Overall, this is a series that no one should miss. It has fabulous Norse mythology weaved into the author's unique take on things. This book deserves nothing less than ten stars.

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 are she and her friends in danger, she must choose a side, but the wrong choice will cost Raine her life.
