Air Awakens by Elise Kova has quickly become one of my favorite reads this year. Full disclosure? I honestly picked this book up because I had seen it around bookstagram and loved the cover! I know, I know, you can't judge a book by its cover. But sometimes, actually more often that not, I find this tactic works out for me. On to what I thought of the WORDS in the book:
Everything about this book was magical and not just because its about magic! Vhalla is thrown into a world that she's been taught to fear and hate. A world that is "wrong" in the eyes of her people. She learns that she possesses magic herself. In denial she tries to hide this from herself. Watching as Vhalla comes to terms with her new reality, while growing closer to the most powerful sorcerer, Price Aldrik was quite a journey. The ending left me begging for more. So of course I immediately had to run out and grab the rest of this series!
I started reading Air Awakens on Monday and finished Friday afternoon of a VERY busy week. I couldn't stop. I loved the characters and the world that Elise Kova created and I absolutely cannot wait to continue reading this series. I'm excited to see what's next for these characters.
