Book: Air Awakens
Author: Elise Kova
My Rating: 5 magical stars
It’s been a minute since I’ve read a good fantasy series. A friend recommended Air Awakens to me and didn’t tell me much about it. So, I went in with no idea what to expect, and man was I happily surprised! Not only was this book a great read, this series has five books and a spin off. Great indulgent fantasy material! Can you see me making clappy hands?
Vhalla is almost 18 when the crown prince returns from war on death’s doorstep. In her attempts to help save his life, she discovers that she has magic. With this revelation, her life will never be the same. The prince survives, and takes an interest in the young, inexperienced sorceress who helped save his life. Vhalla must decide does she wish to embrace the possibility of her new life as a sorcerer? Or does she want to ignore this and continue her humble life in the palace library?
One of my favorite things about the book is that our main character starts out as a humble library apprentice. I can’t help but love a character that loves books as much as I do. Also, the magic system is easy to understand. And even though I’m only one book in, I’m eager to learn more about it. Also, there’s a dark and mysterious prince who likes to wear black and is good at brooding. A staple in a good fantasy series!
I had so much fun reading this! I’ll warn you now, you’ll want to have the next book readily available on standby. Because this one ends in a way that makes you want more ASAP. I can’t wait to get lost in the next four books!
