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.
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.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Raine is now part of the Valkyries world, what is more, she is training to be one. Trying to put her life back together after a tragedy she tried to prevent, her father coming back and Torin forgetting all about her is not an easy task.
This sequel picks up a few weeks after the last book and goes right to the action. A faster book with more twists and adrenaline than the first one, Immortals has a mature tone and deals with the feelings and emotion in an exceptional way.
The introduction of new characters like Lavania, the unveiling of secrets (like Erik’s real identity) and the Three Norns messing with Raine’s head, make this book impossible to put down.
One of the greatest things of the book is the relationship between Raine and Torin. As the first time, the tension between them is palpable, however, he has no idea of what happened in the past. It’s really engaging to read about how they work things out. Raine has a hard time seeing him and remembering the passion and love but not being able to go right to him because his memories were erased. The romance is much mature this time which is great.
This book also present a darker tone, there is an evil out there trying to ruin the town and some of the characters’ lives. There’s a violence that makes the story more powerful, real and truly makes it a better book.
Our leading lady Raine is no longer the shy girl she used to be. Now that her life and others’ is in danger she has a different perspective about life and love. We get to see more of the other characters, each one evolves at its own speed but they all look real.
As usual Ednah writing style is engaging and easy to follow. Again she achieves to transmit the feelings and emotions, bringing to life complete characters through words.
Overall, Immortals is a fantastic sequel with more romance, action and loose ends for next time.
