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?
Seeress is the third book in the Runes series by Ednah Walters. In this book, Raine is coming to terms with her new abilities – including scary visions. On top of these confusing visions, she's dealing with her dad dying, her mom being gone, and Torin being secretive. Worst of all, she finds out that somebody evil is after her. All of this on top of trying to lead a normal high school life. Raine's life isn't easy right now.
This is a good book involving lots of mythology and mystery, but so far I think this is my least favorite book of the series. I think it's just because romance is my favorite aspect of a book, and things just aren't as exciting with Raine and Torin as a couple. Don't get me wrong, they still have lots of chemistry together. It's just, they have been a couple for awhile now and are focused on other things. I'd like to see Raine turn 18, and have her and Torin move to the next step in their relationship.
I love Torin's protectiveness, even if Raine isn't so thrilled about it. I actually even love their bickering – they are such a cute couple! Torin is probably the best book-boyfriend that I have read in young adult fiction. He is drool-worthy, humorously cocky, fiercely protective, and an all around good guy.
There is a lot of suspense in this book, with wondering who the bad guy is. I'm glad there wasn't a big cliffhanger ending. I would like to see another book out about some of the background characters, such as Blaine, Andris or Ingrid. If you like YA paranormal romance and haven't read this series yet, then I definitely recommend starting it!
