Becky Bookworm Book Review: Runes by Ednah Walters (Runes Series Bk1)

Now you all know I LOVE Valkyries and so I am always eager to see how other writers/authors are reinventing them or even just creating a world around and about them in the 21st century. Hence my rather excited and blown-away previous blog post with author Tessa Gratton on her latest book Strange Maid. Usually I come across Valkyries in what I call 'Norse Fantasy' wherein the Valkyrie characters exist either within the Modern World in some form, within the Medieval Ages in some form or in the fantasy world of Asgard in some form. This book does it differently in that it is at what first glance could be called a YA Supernatural Romance. Not my usual cup of tea BUT I am not usually one to judge it's cover and the title is certainly a hint of its nordic elements. Upon reading it I am pleased to say I was hooked from start to finish and Ednah Walters has done something with Valkyries that I haven't seen other authors do in quite the same way - read my full review by clicking on the cover to learn more.
