Demons by Ednah Walters
Demons continues the Runes series by USA Today bestselling author Ednah Walters. What happened to Eirik after he left his friends on Earth and went to Hel?
Eirik Baldurson—son of Baldur, God of Light—failed living as a Mortal. He lost the girl of his dreams and nearly got his friends killed. Now, he’s gone to the underworld to meet the mother he’s never known. Torn between his duty to her and the man he used to be, Eirik struggles to find himself, until a witch appears in his world. Feisty and stubborn, she is a reminder of everything good he left behind.
Celestia Devereaux proudly attends a charter high school for “gifted” teenagers who embrace magic. Witches. However, she keeps a terrible secret—a prediction that she would one day be responsible for massive destruction and death. Though Celestia uses her clairvoyant abilities to help people, she worries that it is just a matter of time before she goes over to the dark side.
Her world changes when she unexpectedly astral projects to a place she didn’t believe existed and meets a tortured man who needs her help. Will helping him cause her fears to come true, or will he sacrifice everything to save her?
The man turned the key in the ignition, but nothing happened. Cursing, he kicked the boat. Yeah, genius, that should do the trick. If I could touch or move things, I could find the problem in under a minute and fix the damn thing. Fixing things was one of the perks of being an only child to a man who liked to dismantle and reassemble things.
I whipped around at the sounds of rustling and breaking twigs. Two alligators ambled stealthily toward the boater, who was now on land, trying to fix his engine.
I’d forgotten about the gators. They were the reason I was here. I hated alligators. Hated their scaly bodies and slitted eyes. Hated that I could see their teeth when their mouths were closed. I couldn’t even explain when my hatred had begun. I just knew I’d always hated them and snakes and lizards and anything reptilian. While my friends’ idea of a horror movie was Poltergeist, mine was Jurassic Park.
Eyeing the creepers, I moved from my place by the tree and jumped in their path, heart pounding furiously and fear drying my mouth.
“Shoo,” I said, waving at them. “Leave him alone.”
The alligators stopped, sensing my essence. Animals were weird that way. The connection between them and Witches was so strong they felt us when more advanced humans couldn’t. My grandmother had been convinced they saw us, too.
