Seeress – Ednah Walters

Seeress Ednah Walters

This book was given to me for an honest review. All opinions are 100% mine. You can read my review for the first of the series here, the second here, the third here.

Blurb

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?

My Thoughts

Seeress picks up after Grimnirs drops off. I know that Grimnirs is a different storyline because it’s Cora’s story. But it bridges the gap between Immortals and Seeress. So I consider it to be book 3 instead of this one. That’s just an aside. Raine and Torin are still tight as ever. Only now there is someone from Torin’s past (before his days as a Valkyrie to be exact) that is wanting Raine to serve his own purpose. Both Raine and Torin do the best that they can to figure out who this person is but instead of working together they do it their own way. Slowly they figure out they make a better team. We see Raine continue with her training to become a Valkyrie and she finally starts to have visions. Though most of them are pretty scary and at one point it becomes hard to differentiate between vision and reality. To say much more would give away too much of the over arching story and this particular one. Sorry, but I try to keep this a spoiler free zone.

We have the usual players in this story, with the inclusion of Echo this time. We also get to meet some witches as well as a new immortal named Femi. I will say that I wasn’t sure how I felt about Eirik in this book. At one point I got downright angry with him, but then you catch glimpses of the boy who was deserving of being Raine’s first crush. Andris continues to grow in my esteem. In this book he has another like that I positively love him for…”All of them.” For some reason, I just love the blood thirsty nature of this man.

Ms. Walters still doesn’t fail to bring it in this book, though much of it was a retelling of some of the things that happened in Grimnirs, I understand why it was done. FIRST it is told from Raine’s perspective and Ms. Walters wanted to give those who wanted to read all of Raine’s story before touching Cora’s to know what happened in the inbetween times. I’m not one of those. I’d rather follow chronology rather than characters. But it’s good that she considered all different avenues. She ends this open for the next book, though it isn’t left at some huge cliffhanger. Would I recommend this book for readers? Oh yes I would. This is clean so the younger ladies in your life can enjoy it with no worries. Though tension is there, there’s no action on it.
