Runes by Ednah Walters

runesWhen I saw the cover for the book Runes by Ednah Walters  I really liked the look of the cover and became curious about the story. I have to admit that this was a very quick read taking only about 2 1/2 to 3 hours tops! To me I felt like it reminded me a lot of The Mortal Instrument Series. There are runes which are a lot like the ones from The Mortal Instrument Series and a love triangle. Another friend that is in love with their best friend who in return is in love with some else kind of story. While I felt the characters development as a whole was well thought out, I just could not get past the similarities and the fact that it is a shorter story (a fast read).  I just was really not impressed with this book.  **I received this book free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.**

(from amazon.com) Seventeen-year-old Raine Cooper has enough on her plate dealing with her father’s disappearance, her mother’s erratic behavior and the possibility of her boyfriend relocating. The last thing she needs is Torin St. James—a mysterious new neighbor with a wicked smile and uncanny way of reading her. Raine is drawn to Torin’s dark sexiness against her better judgment, until he saves her life with weird marks and she realizes he is different. But by healing her, Torin changes something inside Raine. Now she can’t stop thinking about him. Half the time, she’s not sure whether to fall into his arms or run. Scared, she sets out to find out what Torin is. But the closer she gets to the truth the more she uncovers something sinister about him. What Torin is goes back to an ancient mythology and Raine is somehow part of it. Not only is she and her friends in danger, she must choose a side, but the wrong choice will cost Raine her life
