Seventeen-year-old Raine Cooper has enough on her plate dealing with her father's disappearance, her mother's erratic behavior and the possibility of her boyfriend relocating. The last thing she needs is Torin St. James--a mysterious new neighbor with a wicked smile and uncanny way of reading her.
Raine is drawn to Torin's dark sexiness against her better judgment, until he saves her life with weird marks and she realizes he is different. But by healing her, Torin changes something inside Raine. Now she can't stop thinking about him. Half the time, she's not sure whether to fall into his arms or run.
Scared, she sets out to find out what Torin is. But the closer she gets to the truth the more she uncovers something sinister about Torin. What Torin is goes back to an ancient mythology and Raine is somehow part of it. Not only are she and her friends in danger, she must choose a side, but the wrong choice will cost Raine her life
I admit, I went about this reviewing thing backwards lol, because I started reading this series with book 2.5 Grimnirs. I absolutely adored this vook, the stosy was enthralling, I read through book one within a couple of hours and knew I had to jump into book 2 immediately. I blame the cliffhanger ending for my chewed up nails and my lack of sufficient sleep, I was on edge and I needed to know what would happen to Raine.
I'm not a particular fan of love triangle but this one felt more like a love square or octagon or w.e and my heart ached for everyone inolved. In truth, there is sooooo much I want to write but I'm scared to give away something crucial.
The stroy itself started slow, like really slow ( but it wasn't a bad slow) and I felt like the romance between Raine and Eirik was just too forced and unnatural. Both their hearts were somewhere else. I love the dude, he seems like such a good person but I'm team Torin in this one!.
Let me just say though..... I love the Inuyasha shout out when they mention the manga and talk about Lord Sesshomaru... thats my favorite Manga/Anime! I was obssesed with the whole Feudal Japan thing and for this book to mention it, kinda made my day lol.

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.
Well hot dang! This book deserves the 5 stars! While I enjoyed the other 2 books, this was by far the best in the series.
There are some minor inconsictenies between the 3 its nothing to get your panties in a twist. I adore Torin & Raine in this book their connction just seems so profound. ::Sigh::
