Grimnars is part of the Runes series as well as being book 1 in the Grimnirs series. This book is the story of Cora Jemison, best friend of Raine Cooper and Eirik Seville.
Cora finds she can now see ghosts after being marked by a rogue Immortal called Maliina. Cora has recently spent time in a psychiatric hospital, but finds no-one has missed her because unbeknown to her Maliina has been impersonating Cora.
