Publisher's Summary

The Amazon YA paranormal romance best seller that launched the Runes series introduced listeners to Raine and Torin.

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 an 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 him. 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.

    "Captivating romance"
    Would you listen to Runes again? Why?

    Yes. I found the romance between the two lead characters captivating and never wanted to stop listening! All of the main characters add something different to the story. Torin is an extremely charismatic, magnetic male lead and is the character that, for me, made the book great. I liked it so much I'm now on the fourth book in the series, but this one, so far, is still the best.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator was really good, she has a brilliant voice for narration, but she really could have done with an English person or accent coach to help her with Torin's English accent which is a mixture of a proper English accent, a Cockney/East End accent and other times isn't comparable to any kind of English accent. I'm usually not picky with accents but it was distractingly bad at times and that's the reason I didn't give Stephanie Terry five stars for her performance. It didn't stop me from enjoying the book though and it might not be as noticeable for people who aren't English.

    "Good Start"

    Other than the narration it was a good listen. The narrators voice was great, but timing and emphasis seemed off. When the characters were speaking it didn't flow like a real person would.

    Did like the story. Good start to a series.

    "Rune me"

    Loved this wonderful story in book form by Edna Walters. Now I get so much more when Stephanie Terry reads it. Jump into the world of Runic magic and Valkyries and meet the three childhood friends...Raine Cooper, Erik Seville, and Cora Jamison as they navigate high school in Kayville, their hometown.

    "welcome to Raine's new life "

    I really did like this story. A young girl finding out that there is much more to life than what she thinks. Meet Raine Cooper, who thinks that life is just something you live. UNTIL she meets Torin St. James. the so called bad boy next door. Thing is, he's not the bad boy she thinks he is. I love this book and would recommend it to anyone who loves a good YA series

    Story
    "Torin St. James can claim me anytime!! lol."

    The narrator did a good job to me. The story definitely has that teen "feel" to it. But the story seems interesting enough for me to buy the second book and see what happens next. If you are interested in the romance aspect of the book, I'm here to tell you there is definitely a love triangle. The protagonist must choose between her childhood friend and the dark and mysterious...Torin St. James (definitely a hottie if you like the dark and mysterious type). He's also very bold, confident or maybe more so cocky? Although the protagonist wrestles with her feelings towards these two guys, she throughout most of the story has already made her choice, inwardly. Near the end there is a hint that the love triangle might turn into a square? And just when Raine figures out her choice between the two guys, the story ends with a twist. Ha! No one said that love was going to be that easy.

    Story
    "Norse mythology"

    Good read, main difference between this and other mythology young adult books is that you meet Norse mythology. Characterization is good but I never really understood why it was happening.

    "Cliff hanger!!!"

    Well written and performed!!! I enjoy reading books in a series, but find it frustrating when the end in a cliffhanger, or a "no ending"!
