The unforgettable story of Raine and Torin from Immortals continues in the Runes series from Amazon best-selling author Ednah Walters.
I love Torin St. James.... I need his strength.... But someone from his past wants me dead.
Raine Cooper is certain of two things: her love for Torin St. James and her destiny to be a powerful seeress. But when she starts having premonitions, they are unclear and disturbing. Worse, they involve Torin. With her mother gone, her father dying, and her best friend in Hel, she is not sure who to talk to. But when the visions become more personal and she foresees her future with Torin threatened by someone from his past, Raine becomes desperate for answers.
Just her luck, two new students arrive at her school, and they seem to have answers. When with them, her powers are enhanced, and her visions become clear. There is only one problem: Torin forbids Raine to see the two girls. Can their love survive without trust?

I've enjoyed this series a great deal. I find it refreshing with twists and turns that keep me engaged. The story line feels original due to the weaving of gods and their cast. While firmly a YA, it still has enough to keep even adults interested. I'm looking forward to the others in the series.
I'm in love with this series. Each book has very well developed characters and reader detailed story. This series isn't over the top lovey dovey. There's action some family friend drama and just the right amount of fantasy.
im soooooo hooked. this series has everything. love friendship saddness humor. betrayl im looking forward to the next book. the narrator does an amazing job. i love it
Yes, because I never could imagine a situation like that. The author surprised me by creating a plot that involves so many revelations about Torn's past . Not to mention Eric's return.
I like all characters, because each one has a personality with thing that I loved and hated.
Sterphanie Terry's oerformance was excelente. It was a o=performance that holds the listener's attention. A voice that changes to indicate the change of character, which seeks to convey the emotions (happiness, anger, fear, anxiety ...)
For me, that was the best book of the series until now.
Mama Reads Hazel Sleeps owner/blogger, lover of the written and narrated word, if you write it they will review.
As someone who is familiar with the story, I was very pleased with Mz. Terry's ability to distinctly depict each character, and to really pour in the emotions that Mrs. Walters had written into the book. Seeress shows Raine more in charge than ever, and my heart really breaks for Torin here. The raw and edgy feel of the scenes was easy for me to get wrapped up in, although there were a couple instances where I think the narrator may have lost the emotional resonance, overall this was an outstanding audio adaption.
They are both wonderful!
Raine. She sounded like I imagined she would. But Torrin comes in at a VERY close 2nd. I loved the way the narrator did his accent.
Yes, she did a great job.
ALL of chapter 6. Be still my racing heart!
The only negative comment I have is with the voice of Cora. She was annoying & didn't sound at all like I hoped she would. She was kind of whiney.
Yes, I haven't read the book myself yet, and I think I would have retained more of the story if I had. When I can find time I plan to read the book, and then come back to listen again.
Raine - she's my favorite character in the whole series. I love how complex she is.
There were parts that did both for me. ;)
I love Ednah Walters and the 'Runes' series. I've already read 'Seeress' but I couldn't say no to the audiobook version. Let me tell you that I loved hearing someone else reading me a book from a series that never ceases to surprise me.
Stephanie Terry (the narrator) is amazing! she not only has a clear pronunciation and captures each emotion in a remarkable way but she is also excellent with accents. This story has British, Irish and other European characters and she nailed each one of them. She creates a different voice for each character and you never get tired of hearing her. I could listen to her reading all my books.
Now, the story… I already knew it was a great story because like I said I've read it before. However, I have forgotten a lot of details. Raine is still discovering her powers (she is box of surprises) and her relationship with Torin is mature and addictive. He is perfect but still manages to infuriate us by being too protective. Luckily, Raine puts limits and proves she can be independent and also that she can save him sometimes.
There is a lot of danger and mystery around the killer's identity and all the witches congregating in town. The final chapters are full of action and confrontations and again Stephanie does a remarkable job narrating the scenes.
