The Runes Universe

Welcome to Kayville, Oregon, a safe and charming small town nestled in wine country. Kayville is home to spectacular waterfalls, old growth forests, vineyards, and orchards. Hidden among the simple townsfolk is a secret society of powerful Immortals -- centuries-old beings with special abilities harnessed from magical runes, a gift from Norse god, Odin. They mingle with Mortals, raising the next generations and contributing to their community. From organic farmers like the Jemisons to stockbrokers like the Sevilles, the Immortals have sworn to protect their true identity. But love knows no boundaries, and when the Immortals love, they will risk everything to protect their Mortal soulmates.

Whose story is next? A girl visiting relatives? A witch searching for a place to belong? Or just an average college student heading back to school when their car breaks down? Will you explore the past of an Immortal? The possibilities are endless. Be creative, and dare to enter the Runes world.
