One lost love.
One lost best friend.
One hot soul reaper.
Straight out of the psyche ward, Cora just wants her life to be normal. She doesn't want to see souls or the reapers collecting them. The love of her life, the guy she’s loved from a distance for years, has moved 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. It doesn't help that Echo is the poster boy for everything she hates in a guy—hot, beautiful, and cocky. A general pain-in-the-butt. Being around him makes her feel more alive than she’s ever felt before. But more important, the souls leave her alone when he is around.
Echo is perfect for her. Echo might even be her soul-mate. There is only one problem. Echo is a freaking 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. You see, once you fall for a Grimnir, your life will never be the same again.
I saw a few souls here and there on our way home. They all stopped and stared at our car. I slid lower in my seat and wondered whether the arrogant reaper would collect them, too. Maybe he was here to clean up our town. I hoped so. I was tired of being a target.
“You’ve been quiet since we left the store,” Mom said as we got closer to home. We were on Orchard Road, the street that split two of the largest vineyards in Kayville. “Are you okay?”
I shrugged. “Yeah.”
“You know, you can talk to me if anything is bothering you.”
Talking to her was out of the question. Dr. Wendell might prescribe more psych meds or insist on having me admitted again. “I heard you and Dad talk about me this morning. I don’t want to be homeschooled, Mom. I’m going back to school on Monday.”
“No, Mom. I’m better, and I want to do this.”
Her lips pinched in annoyance as she turned onto the road leading to our farm. “Let’s discuss it after dinner.”
Her firm voice said the discussion was closed. I leaned back against my seat and stared out the window. My parents had had me later in life and tended to be overly protective. Most of the time, I listened to them. Not this time. This might be the beginning of a trend. First, homeschooling. Next, not going away to college. The only college in town was a private one, and I planned to go as far away from Kayville as I could. There were way too many bad memories here.

Favorite Lines “Now I want to punch every Mortal that looks at you. I want them to know you might live among them but you are mine.”
“I don’t want anyone else to slay my dragons or chase away my demons. I want you to do it. With me by your side. I want to laugh, and cry, and fight with you.”
“I still want it. Wilted or damaged. It’s mine.” “Then you have it. And my dark soul. And scarred body.” “I love your scarred body.”
“I don’t believe that. I think you choose your path and shape your own destiny”
“Come back to Earth, or Asgard if you like, because you need to find that path and shape your destiny.”
Whew I can't imagine going through what Cora has been through and making it out with her mind in tack! A crazy crazy Immortal put ruins on her body and now she can see spirits! Not only that she pretended to be her while she was locked away in a crazy house. When Cora comes home from the crazy house a fine looking "reaper of death" or Grimnirs is in her room coming after her with a look in his eye that makes her knees goes weak. Echo talks to her like he knows her but, she swears she has never seen him before. She's so lost and confused. Nothing makes sense. Once she puts everything together she is thrust in a world of death, craziness, and magic. She finds out Odin is real, Thor is real and Eirik (a boy she had a huge crush on) is related to them!
Along the way she falls for the sexy Grimnirs. Can they be together? Ha YOU MUST READ IT TO FIND OUT BUT BELIEVE ME ITS SO WORTH IT!!
I can't wait to see what the author comes up with next. I think we will see more of several of these characters and it's going to be a great ride!
I was given this book in exchange for an honest (AYWT)
