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 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.

I am a fun loving mom that enjoys a great Book!! I'm happy to have Audible with a busy life it makes it so easy to still get lost in a book!
Great Book, EXCELLENT NARRATION but I HATE when there is a series that I start to LOVE & there is ONLY 1 BOOK ON AUDIBLE!! If there is going to be a series PLEASE DON'T JUST PUT 1 BOOK ON AUDIBLE!!
I love the book and the story but the narrator voice just isn't what I thought the voice of the character to sound like. The narrator sounded to old n stuck up for this book. I LOVE this series n enjoy reading it over n over, lol. If you're into mythology and gods/goddesses then you should definitely get this bookk!
I listen to a lot of YA books due to a serious lack of anything else that sounds interesting lately, and I have to say that this one is excellent. The story is interesting and fast-paced, the charactors are likable and the writing is well done. It is a little predictable, but then you have the satisfaction that goes along with being right, one of those "aha, I knew it!" things, which are almost as much fun as being totally surprised. I cannot say enough about the narrator. She is absolutely fantastic!! I so hope to see the rest of this series on audible soon, and with the same narrator. I am going now to find other books read by Valerie Gilbert, since there are no more here written by Ednah Walters. Get busy Miss Gilbert!!!
Well I have only listened to about 6 so maybe top 3 😕
I do want to listen to the next one but it's not available on audible
The reader sounded just like a high school student which is what the book was about but it was quite annoying.
When I discovered Audible it was like discovering love :-) I love receiving codes and in return I post reviews. Wife, and mom of two,
What a magnificent story that author Ednah Walters has created. It's unlike anything I've listened to with mythology written in a story. Every detail she includes in this story has purpose. She didn't write too much detail that it bores you but enough to keep you guessing and begging to know more as soon as possible. I'm not going to give anything away as people often do, no, I can just let you know that you really should listen to this story. I guarantee that you'll enjoy it as much as I have. I hope Ednah will add more of her stories to this series soon.
Valerie Gilbert blew me away with her excellent performance of this story. I loved the accents, especially Torin's accent. She made it very easy to connect with the characters and bond with them. She really blew me away and I'd love to hear her do the other stories to this series. Yes, I've heard it through the grapevine there will be more additions added to Audible. I can't wait until that day arrives. I guess I'll have to wait to see who will narrate the others and when the other stories will be added. I highly recommend you give this audio a listen because I guarantee that you'll love it.
I read this book when it was first published. To be able to listen to it is a special treat! I am so happy to be back in Raine's world. I have so missed the world that Author Ednah Walters has created! NOW I have to go stalk her to find out where book 2 is so we can get it on Audible!!!!!
