Music, thou art my Muse
I love music, love listening and watching music videos. Love dancing, and so it’s not surprising
my favorite workout is Zumba. I love to listen to music when I write. In fact, I get inspiration
when I listen to music. Some of the songs listed below remind me of Raine and Torin’s love. I
can listen to them forever and see my characters come alive in my head. I’ve only listed the top
10 hits, but feel free to stop by Youtube to listen to the entire playlist.
1. Breathless - Shayne Ward
2. Alison Krauss - when you say nothing at all
3. I Can't Fight This Feeling Anymore
4. Dangerously In Love - Beyonce Knowles
5. You're the Inspiration
6. Aerosmith - I Don't Wanna Miss a Thing
7. Faith Hill - The Way You Love Me
8. It's Your Love - Tim Mcgraw & Faith Hill
9. With You - Chris Brown
10. Belinda Carlisle - Heaven Is a Place on Earth
Torin & Raine's Songs
Nothing can stop Raine Cooper when she wants something…
Raine finally knows that her gorgeous neighbor, Torin St. James, is a legend straight out
of Norse mythology, and that her feelings for him are strong. Torin is crazy about Raine
too, breaking the one rule he lives by: Never fall for a mortal. The problem is he no longer
remembers her, his memories erased by Norns—Norse destiny deities—to punish her for defying
She will make Torin forget his one rule a second time and fall in love with her all over
But she quickly learns that well-laid plans do not work when dealing with deities and
supernatural beings. Desperate, Raine makes choices that could not only tear her and Torin
further apart, but lead to the destruction of everything and everyone she loves.
This is the second book in the Runes series, so if you haven't read Runes don't read this. There may be minor spoilers. Not of this book but of the first one. Kay. On to the review. But if you've read Immortals, then omigosh do you remember that ending? Heartbreaking. Torin forgot everything. Everything! I almost cried. Anyway, I seriously enjoyed this book. Even more than the first one if that's possible.
My one problem with the writing: Hel. Just a name. But in Immortals it totally replace the word "hell." Sometimes it worked and then other times...not so much. For example: "Hel no." That doesn't work considering the word "Hel" used alone is just a name, so it doesn't sound right. Unless you're telling Hel "no," in which case it would read "Hel, no." So yeah. That bothered me a lot. Otherwise I found no problem with the writing, but it was super hard to put down.
So many problems, so little pages. There were a lot of ways the plot could have gone, and it could get confusing. For the most part, though, it was easy to understand. Speaking of confusing: The Predictability Paradox. Without spoiling, I can tell you that there's a pint in the story at which it's pretty easy to guess who's doing something. That someone is pretty easy to guess. But that someone isn't the someone you might think. Confusing right? You'll get it once you read the book. Which you will do. Duh.
There were some major character changes in Immortals. The most drastic: Andris. From total douche to surprisingly sweet. What? How? When? I don't know. I feel like there should have been more explanation on the total 360, it would have been much less confusing. Next change, Torin was even more sweet. And perfect. Always perfect. Other than that, I just wish there was a little more of Lavania's personality. She was in the book a lot, but it was hard to get a read on her actually personality. She was just kind of 2-D. My favorite part was how Raine was in the beginning. Totally kick-ass. Torin was acting like a jerk in the beginning and Raine made him pay. I won't go into details, but lets just say it was thoroughly enjoyable.
Oh, Raine. Haven't you ever heard of sharing? Torin's too good to keep to yourself. Raine was just a little bit clingy. Just a bit. I just think she could have been just a little more independent in the relationship. I mean I would wanna know where Torin is too but I wouldn't feel lost without him. That's a little much. Other than that is was just so cute. Torin was super sweet and super thoughtful. I am so jealous of Raine.
