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 them.

She will make Torin forget his one rule a second time and fall in love with her all over again. 

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.

My Review
Raine should be happy now. She knows about the Norns, knows about the valkyrie and her family is happy. She love Torin and he cares for her. There is just a few problems. Everyone at school thinks she is a witch, she has to deal with knowing what really happened at the school as a tragedy and Torin doesn't remember her as his memories of her were took away. Now she has to get him to remember her, train and figure out what she wants to do and figure out what secrets there are unknown about her and those around her.

I loved the first book in this series and was thrilled to see where the second book went. Let me just say I was in no way prepared for the twist and turns this book took. If I could have guessed at what would happen in it I would be so wrong. The author does a fantastic job taking this book places that are a refreshing change. All the characters are wonderful to get to know. The second book really expands and let's you get to know them all better. Even the ones you love to hate you still want to read more about. I know I am being vague but I never give spoilers. If you are looking for a wonderful book on Norse Mythology, a paranormal book, or just one that makes you beg for more try this series. It is so awesome and addictive.

“Oh, see me after class, Ms. Cooper. I have a folder with missed assignments and a breakdown of the concepts we covered while you were gone. If you need help, I’ll be available in my office this week after school. When you’re ready, I have several quizzes you missed.”

No Saturday classes? Yes! I glanced at Torin from the corner of my eye and found him still watching me. How could he not remember being in this class with me?

He pointed at his eyes with two fingers then at the teacher. Face warming up again, I stared ahead. 

At the end of the class, I was collecting my things when a soft scent of lavender reached my nose, and I looked up. Lavania stood beside my desk. She was even more beautiful up close, her porcelain skin flawless, her lips lush, and her gray eyes wide like a doe’s. How could any guy resist her?

“I’m Lavania Celestina Ravilla, but you can call me Lavania,” she said, her voice soft and melodic, her smile genuine and sweet. But I wasn’t fooled. She was a Valkyrie, which meant she could move like the wind and flatten a car with a punch. 

“Lorraine Cooper, but everyone calls me Raine.” I glanced at Torin to see his reaction. His expression was unreadable.

Lavania grinned. “So you are the Mortal everyone is talking about here and there.”

“There?” I asked.

“Rain with an E,” Torin murmured.

My head whipped toward him, and I, momentarily, forgot about my conversation with Lavania. “You remembered.”

His eyebrows shot up. “Remember what?”

“The day we met.”

He gave me a look that said he thought I had a few loose screws. “Of course. You ran out of your house when I pulled up and k—”

“Never mind.”

“Of course, you two already met,” Lavania said and chuckled. “And we’re neighbors.” She said it as though it explained something. 

Torin’s face grew red, which was intriguing. He wasn’t the blushing type. Still, I hated that they shared a secret, even if it had something to do with my house. “Ah, excuse me. My next class is in the south wing and—”

“So is ours. We’ll walk with you.” Lavania slipped her arm through mine, effectively stopping me from leaving. Until I knew the nature of her relationship with Torin, she would stay on my hate-list. “Since you’re my protégé, we should be friends,” she continued. “Stop by the house for a chat this evening. We can get to know each other.”
