#BookReview :: Grimnirs (Runes #2.5) by Ednah Walters

Straight out of the psych ward, Cora just wants her life to be normal. She doesn’t want to see souls or the reapers collecting them. The guy she’s loved from a distance for years moves away without saying goodbye. So yes, she’s nursing a serious heartbreak. It’s no wonder love is the last thing on her mind when Echo storms into her life. 

The chemistry between them is mind-blowing.The connection defies logic. Even better, the souls leave her alone when he is around.

Too bad Echo is the poster boy for everything she hates in a guy—hot, beautiful,and cocky. He is also a soul reaper. A Grimnir.
The very beings she wants out of her life. Maybe normal is overrated because Cora wants it all. Answers. Love. A life. 

This book in the series concentrates on Raine’s best friend Cora. Fresh out of a psych ward, Cora is struggling to get back to a normal life. But it turns out to be particularly difficult as she can still see ghosts/souls and a grimnir named Echo is driving her mad. To top it off, one of her best friends, Eirik, moves away. As Cora continues to search for answers, the chemistry between her and Echo is undeniable. But is she ready? – To handle the answers waiting for her and to handle Echo?

I liked the change of point of view shifting from Raine to Cora. Cora has always been the most bubbly and vivacious among the group of characters in the series. It was an experience to take a ride along Cora in her journey to find answers and give closures to the lost souls. It was interesting the way the author portrayed Cora’s new found affinity to see souls and communicate with them. However, I found her and Echo’s relationship to be a bit sudden. She barely knew the guy when she fell for him. Echo is such an arrogant and overzealous character. I cannot say am particularly fond of him.

I liked the twists that the author threw at us in this instalment. I am hoping there will be another book telling the story from Eirik’s point of view – afterall his life was turned upside down completely.

It was a refreshing to read the story from Cora’s point of view, though I can’t wait to get back to Raine telling the story and taking it further along.
