Review: Immortals (Runes #2) by Ednah Walters

Summary: 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.

So Raine comes up with a plan...
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

**If you haven't, you can read my review for the first book Runes (Runes #1) HERE. And this review does contain spoilers about the plot so you have been warned!**

Initial Thoughts:  Give me the last book. That was my first thought when I finished. I mean you can't just drop a huge secret and say "The End"! Cliffhangers, I love them and I hate them... 

The Story: The characters are the same as in the first book but there are huge problems going on. First, something is off about Cora and Raine doesn't know until later in the book but when you read it, you pick up that something is going on. Eirik is having the Jekyl and Hyde thing going on because *spoiler* (highlight to read) he is Loki's grandson  and he sometime loses control and makes other people go crazy and they start fighting and attacking each other. Plus Torin lost his memories and her dad is really sick. Raine is also training to become a Valkyrie. You find out that it's her mom's side that has to do with Norse mythology but her dad knows too which is awesome - I like it when everyone knows what's going on in books. As you can see Raine's life isn't looking too well at the moment. Raine is trying to solve all these problems. She needs to find out what and probably who is causing Eirik to turn dark, she needs to train, help her dad and try to make Torin remember or fall in love with her again. But as Raine's mother said - he may have forgotten but the heart always remembers. And Torin even says that - he knows there's something about Raine he just can't rememeber but slowly he remembers little phrases and stuff about Raine. Plus his friend who he trusts told him his memory was erased so eventually things work out though Torin doesn't get his memories back (yet...) and happily ever after. Kidding, Raine and Torin's relationship works out but there are still so many secrets and problems that need to be solved. In the end some of them are but I told you there was a huge cliffhanger at the end which I can't wait to see more of in the next book!!

End Thoughts: The book was funny, sad, mysterious and really great - so is the series! It was a fun read and I look forward to more! Definitely 5 stars!
