"Like any effective series opener, Runes brims with mystery.
Aptly introduces characters and relationships...
"There’s plenty left unresolved for future books..." - Kirkus Review
Award-winning Runes series introduces us to the wonderful and magical world of Norse mythology in an unexpected way when the protagonist, a grieving high school girl, is drawn to the supernatural world of soul reapers and Norse pantheon after meeting her mysterious new neighbor.
The unique storyline makes the series stand out in the overcrowded YA paranormal genre.
Praised for seamlessly blending Norse mythology with believable contemporary high school life, the Runes Series consists of seven full-length novels and there are more to follow.
With over 180,000 English-language books sold, readers will be immersed in the paranormal world of Norse Pantheon: Valkyries, Immortals, Witches, vengeful Goddesses, Elves, Dwarves, and Jotnar (giants).
Runes blends paranormal/fantasy elements and romance comparable to works by Julie Kagawa (Iron Fey), Cassandra Clare (City of Heavenly Fires), Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl (Beautiful Creatures), and C. C. Hunter (Whispers by Moon Rise) as three best friends discover they are more than what they seem and their destiny is tied to the gods.
Each book adds to an intricate world that has enchanted not only young adult audience (Grade: 8 – 12 / Age: 15 – 18), but has crossed over to adult readership.
