I love Torin St. James...
I need his strength…
But someone from his past wants me dead.

Raine Cooper is certain of two things: her love for Torin St. James and her destiny to be a powerful seeress. But when she starts having premonitions, they are unclear and disturbing. Worse, they involve Torin. With her mother gone, her father dying, and her best friend in Hel, she is not

I love books that keep surprising you. there were so many twists and turns in this book, I wasn't able to properly guess anything. it was awesome.

I love Torin St. James! and even though Raine was a little whiny in this one she did try to keep it together. she went through a lot of crap. I love the writing style of these books. I love that I feel pulled into the story.

starting book 4 later after I've slept a bit. it's 3 am. I just couldn't stop reading.

Last fall, I'd been your average high schooler with a crush on her childhood friend. Nothing exciting was happening in my life, just a looming seventeenth birthday and swim practice. Then a leather-wearing, dark-haired british guy knocked on my door and my life had never been the same.

Torin St James, how I've missed your cockiness, your passion and that sexy smile. Once again, you managed to have me swooning and laughing.

Raine Cooper has started having visions. Visions that leave her confuse

Another 5 star gem from the amazingly talented, Ednah Walters!

The Runes series is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. Seeress picks up right where Grimnirs left off with Lorraine Cooper, Raine (with an E) to her friends, trying to navigate her way through this confusing yet exhilarating new life that she's found herself a part of. Last fall Raine was just an average high school student. Now, she's anything BUT average. Sh

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This book was filled with oodles of YA goodness. There was teen angst, controlling boyfriends (and alpha males), smoldering looks, and action action action! I recommend reading these books in order so you get the full impact of the Raine/Torin (and Cora/Echo) story.

Raine and Torin are the sizzling couple we’ve come to expect from previous books. There’s no smutty goodness, but it’s as good as somewhat caste YA gets. Between that, th

Seeress is the third book in the Runes series by Ednah Walters. In this book, Raine is coming to terms with her new abilities – including scary visions. On top of these confusing visions, she's dealing with her dad dying, her mom being gone, and Torin being secretive. Worst of all, she finds out that somebody evil is after her. All of this on top of trying to lead a normal high school life. Raine's life isn't easy right now.

This is a good book involving lots of mythology and mystery, but so far

I don’t think I could write a proper review of this fine novel without spoilers, so here’s your warning. If you read past the opening blurb, you will find some plot spoilers for this one.

Seeress is such a great installment in the Runes series, leaving you with questions, both answered and not, and so many emotional quandaries as to create your own break down worthy of a stay at PMI.

First of all, If you haven't started this series, you should because you will be disappointed you missed this New release in the Runes Series.

Raine is still learning about her new abilities. She is finally starting to have visions, however they aren't very clear. Torin doesn't like this one bit. Eirik is still MIA, and Raine's mother has gone to try to regain her Valkyrie status. And Raine's dad isn't getting any better.

This story is fast paced and exciting with so much drama, you can't help but
Raine is SO ANNOYING! She and Torin are supposed to be soulmates and all that but they spend most of their time arguing. He’s a control freak; she’s impetuous and thinks she knows everything. And then, they’ll be having a fight and she sees how handsome he is and whatever she’s mad at him about is forgotten. Their relationship just seems so superficial. She’s always mad at him but - wait! - washboard abs!!! Everything is forgiven!!! Then she’s back to being mad at him again - until the next time ...more

Seeress picks up after Grimnirs drops off. I know that Grimnirs is a different storyline because it’s Cora’s story. But it bridges the gap between Immortals and Seeress. So I consider it to be book 3 instead of this one. That’s just an aside. Raine and Torin are still tight as ever. Only now there is someone from Torin’s past (before his days as a Valkyrie to be exact) that is wanting Raine to serve his own purpose. Both Raine and Torin do the best that they can to figure out who this person is ...more

I cannot believe that happened... Now I have to wait even longer for the next book to come out! That's just not fair!!! I loved it... At least Raine is getting brave enough to stand up to Torin, that takes guts. Especially after she figured out what he would do. Eirik was almost on my hate list but then he came back around so he's all good and Torin is happy now that someone is where she's supposed to be. I still cannot believe I have to wait till the next one comes out, it's going to drive me c ...more

Loved it! The change in Raine is huge and I start to like her new side. She is maturing and becoming a brilliant young woman.
Torin, oh, Torin. He is one HOT, that I would snatch for myself.

In here we can see that so many things are revealed. So much hurt and pain for Torin and Raine. My heart broke so many times, but their love is everlasting and they both know they have each other

Seeress was the 3rd book but 4th installment in the Runes Series and Ms Walters brings it!! One thing I must say is I still have so many questions! Luckily they aren’t old lingering questions they are bright new ones. I am a mega fan of this series because it’s hard not to be.

In this book we go back to Raine, where in Grimnirs we got a switch to Cora's POV and I admit I was curious if that would continue or even a swap back and forth kind of deal. No we stick with Raine which I don't mind at all, but I do hope to get more of Cora's POV in the future knowing how much I enjoyed it. Where was I? Oh yes I was back with Raine Cooper who is a complicated girl who is pretty much sure of a few things in life, that she loves Torin (then again who wouldn't), and she is a powe ...more

Walters has done it again by releasing another captivating installment in her imaginative Runes series that brings Norse Mythology to life and takes readers into a world where Valkyries, Immortals, and Grimnirs hide in plain sight unbeknownst to mortals around them as they carry out the bidding of their gods and goddesses. Because of her supernatural lineage the young heroine of the series, Raine Cooper, has now become part of this paranormal world, learning to create magical runes and discoveri ...more

After reading Grimnirs I thought this series couldn’t get any better. Boy, I was wrong. Seeress put the bar really high for the next books in the series. Starting right up where we left in the novella, Grimnirs, Raine is dealing with her sick father, her mother gone and her new Seeress role. Being a witch in the training is not easy when you start having visions about someone coming after you.

Fast, exciting and full of surprises this book is everything you expected and more. The danger seems big

The Runes Series by Ednah Walter is a creative, engaging, and gripping paranormal romance that I just love. With a Norse Mythology theme in a modern day setting, Ednah Walter's has created a paranormal world that sucks you right up into it. Valkyries, Norns, Grimnirs, Seers, Witches, Immortals, and more are part of this world. Seeress picks up with more of Raine and Torin's story, which I have thoroughly enjoyed watching progress over the course of this series thus far. Raine is now a powerful s ...more

Ednah Walters is a brilliant storyteller. She knows how to suck you into her stories and keep you coming back for more. Every book in this series is AMAZING. Seeress does not disappoint. There was always something going on to keep you on your toes. I also really enjoyed getting more background into Torin's past. I love how no matter what is thrown Raine and Torin's way their relationship has been able to weather the storms and come out even stronger than before.

Life can get a little scary when you finally start having visions but, they are of others of your kind being killed. Especially when the person behind it looks an awful lot like the man you love. This is Raine's life now. She tries to live day to day as normal as possible with her Dad's illness slowly getting worse. she has a lot going on. Never really any time to herself. To make matters worse a lot of her support structure is gone. She has her Dad and Torin to lean on. What do you do when you ...more

"Every moment you look into my eyes and whisper you love me, I give you a piece of myself. Yet loving you feeds my soul. Kissing you reaffirms what I believe deep down in my core- that you and I belong together."

So I really love Torin but in this book it infuriates me by how he treats Raine but once he smirks I forget that I'm angry with him just like Raine and this gets me angrier. He doesn't back down no matter what. If

Continues to be a very addicting series!!

All the characters are amazing and have developed such great relationships with each other, you never would have guessed that from the first book Runes. The story really develops in this book with the surprising discovery of who is after Raine and killing other seers. It also dives into Torin's family history which I always love since he is almost a thousand years old. More of my favorite side story from Grimnirs with Cora and Echo. Raine and Torin are s

I love books that portray strong female characters. This is one of those series. Raine Cooper knows who she is because she had a strong family background. He parents have her love and support and also let her be herself. So when her life got flipped with all the paranormal changes she still remained the core of raine. She is not perfect and doesn't always make the best decisions but she owns it, learns from it and isn't afraid to reach out for help.
Now torin is a perfect mate. He doesn't try to
