Witches continues the story of Raine and Torin. This story's timeline overlaps with Cora's in Souls.
The Norns think they've won, but it's hard to control a teenager, let alone a powerful one....
Raine Cooper's life should be perfect. She's an Immortal Seeress, most likely to be elected prom queen, and envied by the girls at Kayville High for dating the dreamy quarterback, Torin St. James. Instead she's haunted by the smug facial expressions the Norns' wore during their last meeting.
As a Norn-in-training, Raine crossed the line long ago when she sided with the Valkyries and Mortal Witches. When the Norns return with demands of their own, Raine feels trapped. She must repair the battlegrounds and wipe out the memories of every Mortal witness. Torin tries to convince her that the Norns are manipulating her, but she refuses to listen. At least until the Norns' demands focus on someone she loves.
When Raine refuses to cooperate with them, their punishment is swift and gut wrenching, turning her pain into fury. Raine plots revenge on a massive scale and makes deals with unsavory allies. Her goal? Total destruction of the entire Norn race. Raine's only hope of salvation is Torin, but how much will he sacrifice to save her?

I found this series to be a fresh YA series. While it stays pretty true to the overall genre, the components aligned to Odin and his pantheon into an alternative universe was compelling and kept my interest. I enjoy the overlap of characters and focus on them for more than just one book like so many do. I ran through all of the books available and am looking forward to upcoming installments.

Well lets see, maybe the City of Bones. Two lovers with something or someone always out to get them. But then it isn't the same at all in other ways.
I did enjoy listening. It brings depth to the characters that I wouldn't have gotten otherwise.
I did laugh in a few areas. These characters have grown on me. If you aren't emotionally evolved by now it probably will not for you.
I think the áudiobook allows the listener to experience the story more actively because the person doing the narration seeks to convey the emotions of each character.
I liked Raine. She did what she though was right.
I really, really recommend this series.
absolutely love how this book gave you a different point of the events that happened in souls. Ednah Walters has become one of my favorite authors. I am anxious to see what happens to Eirik.
with every page turn you will be on the edge of your seat! she even made me cry in this one. you become so attached to the characters and the emotion of everything going on it was just amazing!
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!
This Series is SO AMAZING!! I'M NOW I'M WAITING MODE TILL THE NEXT BOOKS COME OUT ON AUDIBLE!! HOWEVER AS SOON AS THEY ARE AVAILABLE I WILL PRE-ORDER THEM & BUY THEM DOWNLOAD THEM ASAP! I CAN'T WAIT!!
Witches takes place during Souls but it's through Raines story. You still get the main parts of Souls but you get more of Raine in this. And there are AMAZING moments that you want to read. Ednah makes her fans fall even more in love with her characters of the Runes series.
this was my favorite book so far. I love how the last book souls and this book witches really go together. you are getting two different perspectives from the same time period, super cool idea. the narrator Stephanie Terry was brilliant as well. I did not want to stop listening to this book. even my boyfriend enjoyed it. I cannot wait until the next book. ednah walters knows how to keep us on our toes!
Yes, you read that right. WITCHES! Now, how, do you ask, are Witches involved? YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE THIS ONE! I did. With my whole heart! I have loved this series from the very first word! Author Ednah Walters had hooked me with her first book Runes. I was starving for more of Raine Cooper and this mysterious Torin St. James. This amazing new world that Ednah created went on to amaze me in the next four books: Immortals, Seeress Grimnirs, and Souls. I asked myself "what could Ednah possible have in store for us next"? I was over the moon happy with how Witches curbed my appetite and tied up all the loose ends and answered all my questions, not to mention some AMAZING story line within the book that had me jumping for joy and screaming at the book at the same time! I love this series so much.
I find myself wishing I had the power of Runes and the magic that goes along with it! I am on my knees BEGGING you, Ednah PLEASE, do not let this be the last book...pretty please???
Thank you author Ednah Walters for sharing this amazing world with us! Raine, Torin, Cora and the cast of this series has kept me company for quite some time now and I have grown to love them like family! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!
I've read many books written by Ednah Walters and all other books in this series and I really love how well developed the characters are. With each book they seem to be getting more complex and more intriguing while the style is also getting even more polished and the text even more elaborate than before.
I loved how the story evolves and how Raine and Torin and their friends get closer. As a reader you can feel how they start to trust eachother and learn to rely on the others.
The characters are authentic and convincing, they make mistakes and learn from them, and they learn to face the demons of their past.
Witches is really great, I loved everything about it and couldn't put it down, I was hooked right from the first page on and it still is my favorite book in this series!
Soooo....it really was a little bit of a risk to listen to the audiobook of course because the best book isn't that good anymore if the narrator doesn't fit but... that's definitely not a problem here! I love the narrator and the way she reads the story. It is very expressive and read with feeling without ever getting too sentimental or overdoing it and I also really like her voice and enjoy listening to it. Stephanie Terry is a great choice and I look forward to listening to the other books of the series as well!
*I was given an ARC of this audiobook in exchange for an honste review.*
