Blog Tour: Souls by @ednahwalters (review)

WARNING: This is CORA'S story: This book may be considered NA (new adult) because it contains some swearing, violence and sex scenes: Suitable for ages 17 and up. A Clean Version will also be available on Amazon.

Eighteen-year-old Cora Jemison knows what it’s like to date a soul reaper. There are no Friday night movies, no school dances, and no stolen kisses between classes. It totally sucks! What makes it even worse, souls pop up when she least expects it. The last one is not her fault, but it all adds up to zero quality time with her super hot, scythe-carrying boyfriend, Echo.

Since Cora was etched with special runes by an evil Immortal, she understands why souls are drawn to her. She makes the best of it by helping souls find closure while Echo escorts them to the realm of the dead. Perfect partners, until a dark soul visits Cora in the dead of the night and Echo decides her soul-helping days are over.

Cora can either listen to Echo or follow her instincts. To make matters worse, other reapers start stalking her, demanding she hand over the soul. Even her Valkyrie friends think she’s gone too far. But something sinister is coming their way, and the soul is the key to saving her town, her friends, and her relationship with Echo. Can she convince Echo to see things her way before it’s too late?

EDNAH WALTERS grew up reading Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys and dreaming of one day writing her own stories. She is a stay-at-home mother of five humans and two American short-hair cats (one of which has ADHD) and a husband. When she is not writing, she’s at the gym doing Zumba or doing things with her family, reading, traveling or online chatting with fans.

Ednah is the author of The Guardian Legacy series, a YA fantasy series about children of the fallen angels, who fight demons and protect mankind. AWAKENED, the prequel was released by Pill Hill Press in September 2010 with rave reviews. BETRAYED, book one in the series was released by her new publisher Spencer Hill Press in June 2012 and HUNTED, the third installment, was released March 2013. She’s working on the next book in the series, FORGOTTEN. Visit her at

Ednah also writes YA paranormal romance. RUNES is the first book in her new series and there are currently three other books published in this series. SOULS (Grimnir book 2 a side story to the RUNES series) and WITCHES book 4 will release 2014.  Read more about this series and the world she's created here

Under the pseudonym E. B. Walters, Ednah writes contemporary romance. SLOW BURN, the first contemporary romance with suspense, was released in April 2011. It is the first book in the Fitzgerald family series. Since then she has published five more books in this series. She's presently working on book seven. You can visit her online at or

Warning: this book is part of a bigger series, the review might contain spoilers for other books.

Souls is the second story that has Cora and Echo as main characters and of course the story is set perfectly after Seeress. This is an exciting, sexy, addictive and phenomenal story that will leave you speechless and gasping for air.

Cora continues evolving into a strong, fearless, powerful and loving woman. With Echo by her side she still tries to use her gifts to helps souls while trying to remain sane.

Their relationship is so stunning. Their love keeps growing and becoming more marvelous. They are the perfect example of two people being like one soul divided in two bodies without losing their independence. Each one is amazing on their own but together they are a force to reckon.

The action and adrenaline is present during the entire book and this time the evil forces are meaner and have no limits on their actions. They will do whatever it takes to achieve their goals.

The book moves really fast and the new characters are great additions. As usual the one we love as Raine and Torin make regular appearance without taking the spotlight of our sweet Cora. And there is one character that will make you laugh a lot and it definitely will make you like him.

One thing I love about Cora’s story is how real and natural it is. It has a more mature and sexy atmosphere and it’s true that the temperature rise a bit sometimes. I say this because but I don’t understand why there has to be a Clean Version. She is whole different person from Raine and her relationship with Echo is different and the scenes (which are great) that have a higher temperature are part of who she is, there shouldn’t another version because it would be like creating a new Cora, one that is not true to herself.

Anyway, this book is as great as its predecessors and Runes fans will love it. It’s a great paranormal romance with a great plot, good background, excitement all over the place and likeable characters.
