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?
A shirtless Eirik was doing push-ups, the same tattoos I’d seen on his mother coiling under his glistening skin. He didn’t have as many as she did, but that pull to reach out and touch his skin was there. Despite his fewer glowing tattoos, the pull was stronger and somehow different from his mother’s. I couldn’t explain it.
Warmth coiled deep in my stomach and my heart did that weird tremble it did yesterday when he had buried his face in my hair. The corded muscles on his back shifted beautifully, his biceps straining with the effort as he pushed and lifted himself up, then down. Funny, I hadn’t noted the thin dust of blond hair on his arms. I never thought manly fuzz would be intriguing. And who would have known the weak man I’d helped yesterday would have such a masculine body with washboard abs?
The urge to close the gap between us and touch him grew. I wanted to run my hand up and down his back. Would the tattoos react? It was obvious they were magical. It was the only explanation for the pull I’d felt toward his mother and now him.
“Morning,” he said without looking in my direction.
My first instinct was to jump out of sight. Had he caught me ogling him?
