I was given an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The opinions expressed are mine alone.
Heroes is the second book in the Eirik Series, a companion to Walters’ wildly popular Runes Series.
Author Ednah Walters continues to work her magic on Eirik, Celestia, and their colliding worlds. Eirik rises as a warrior, a champion, and a leader. Celestia is empowered, and continues to show loyalty and love in the face of danger.
I am in awe of the depth of the feelings elicited by this story. I really love the way Walters adds complexity to the previously existing characters, especially the goddess Hel. This character is now one of my favorites of the Runes universe.
I wish that there were a more detailed crossover between Heroes and Seeress (Book Four of the Runes Series), but I am happy that Walters found a logical way to tie both books together. Walters also does an amazing job of world-building, allowing me to be immersed in the realms and the action. The twist at the end of the book is mind blowing!
I remain enamored with Eirik’s story. 5 stars
