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 an 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 him. What Torin is goes back to an ancient mythology, and Raine is somehow part of it. Not only is she and her friends in danger, she must choose a side, but the wrong choice will cost Raine her life.

This woman’s voice was loud, she spoke too fast to hear what was being said, ,after ten minutes I had to switch her horrible voice off, I am sorry I bought this audible on this Runes story as this woman’s voice just totally ruined this wonderful story, does the author ever listen to what these speakers are doing to their books..?.

A good read.
I've wanted to read this for a long time and jumped at the chance of listening to the audio. While I enjoyed it, there was one major thing that annoyed me. I'm going to list my likes and dislikes, so lets get thee bad out of the way first.
What I Disliked:
The dreaded love triangle!! Why oh why do authors feel the need to put in a love triangle. It's something that I loathe and if I know there's a love triangle, I usually steer clear. She "loves" her boyfriend, whom just happens to be her best friend, yet when the new mysterious neighbour comes on the scene, she can't stop thinking about him, even when she is with her boyfriend. It really turned me off the whole book, which is a pity because there was much to like.
Raine: I really, really didn't like how she was with Eriik. I just wanted her to end it and go with Torin if that's what she wanted instead of staying with him.
The Norse mythology: Loved this aspect of the book. We don't have nearly enough books dealing with these kinds of myth!
Torin: Super hot and awesome!!! Such a mysterious character and with some amazing abilities.
The feel: And what I mean by this is that while parts felt incredibly familiar to other books, it felt comfortable reading this. It felt like a lot of my favourite books rolled into one.
In all, this was a good read. I enjoyed a lot of it but didn't like the rest. I will definitely pick up the ext one in the hopes Raine cops on a bit!! ;)
Stephanie Terry did a good job with the narration though I did find that she used the same tone for a number of characters. Overall I enjoyed her performance and would lidten to more read by her.
*I received a copy of this via AudioBookBlast for review. This in no way affects my thoughts.*

Other than the narration it was a good listen. The narrators voice was great, but timing and emphasis seemed off. When the characters were speaking it didn't flow like a real person would.
Did like the story. Good start to a series.
