Sunday's Spotlight: #7 Runemarks (Audiobook)

1877314 Runemarks (Runemarks #1)

Seven o’clock on a Monday morning, five hundred years after the end of the world, and goblins had been at the cellar again. . . . Not that anyone would admit it was goblins. In Maddy Smith’s world, order rules. Chaos, old gods, fairies, goblins, magic, glamours–all of these were supposedly vanquished centuries ago. But Maddy knows that a small bit of magic has survived. The “ruinmark” she was born with on her palm proves it–and makes the other villagers fearful that she is a witch (though helpful in dealing with the goblins-in-the-cellar problem). But the mysterious traveler One-Eye sees Maddy’s mark not as a defect, but as a destiny. And Maddy will need every scrap of forbidden magic One-Eye can teach her if she is to survive that destiny.

My Thoughts: I heard talk about this book recently, and since I enjoy mythology, especially Norse, I had to try it! I'm not a fan of Audiobooks, and often can't stay focused more than a few minutes, then give up. When I seen this at my library was only in audio, I figured it would be the same. Surprisingly I'm really enjoying this one, and hope to finish it next week!  The story in interesting and the characters are fun. I can't wait to see what happens to Maddy!
