BOOK REVIEW #4 - AIR AWAKENS (SPOILER FREE)




Genres : YA, High Fantasy, Romance
Series : Air Awakens
My Rating : 


Review

I had been waiting to get my hands on this book for a while and now that I have read it I am mad at myself for not reading it sooner. This book captured my attention early on although it wasn't too action packed in the beginning but Elise Kova wasted no time in beginning world and character building as well as building some anticipation and mystery.

Her writing captivated me and I finished the book within about 2.5 days(I usually take a week per book no matter the length). The romance wasn't instalove and it built up and I connected to the main character, Vhalla, quite easily and I was surprised with most things that Vhalla was surprised with.

Overall the book was fantastic and although there was magic, I could have used a little more but I think that in the sequel there will be much more magic and I can't wait to get the rest of this series and the upcoming         'The Alchemists of  Loom' by Elise Kova as well.




Synopsis

A library apprentice, a sorcerer prince, and an unbreakable magic bond...

The Solaris Empire is one conquest away from uniting the continent, and the rare elemental magic sleeping in seventeen-year-old library apprentice Vhalla Yarl could shift the tides of war.

Vhalla has always been taught to fear the Tower of Sorcerers, a mysterious magic society, and has been happy in her quiet world of books. But after she unknowingly saves the life of one of the most powerful sorcerers of them all—the Crown Prince Aldrik—she finds herself enticed into his world. Now she must decide her future: Embrace her sorcery and leave the life she’s known, or eradicate her magic and remain as she’s always been. And with powerful forces lurking in the shadows, Vhalla’s indecision could cost her more than she ever imagined.

#READTHEMALLTHON TBR UPDATE

Disclaimer: Pokemon belongs to Nintendo.


So we are on Day 1 of the #READTHEMALLTHON and I have decided to change my Marsh Badge Book Choice from Zenith to ... Truthwitch by Susan Dennard. I have come upon this decision after I heard on Sasha's Channel that there will be changes to Zenith and that they will be releasing it all at once. I also decided on this because I need to write a Spoiler Free Review and a Spoiler Review(AKA Me gushing about how Truthwitch is perfect), as well as a Theories post and a secret post which is nothing special but I am keeping it secret for now.

So yeah. Also now that I am writing this post here is my progress so far:
I am on Page 128 of Truthwitch and I found this really coll Automated Spreadsheet by Windie @Geek Apprentice as well as Aentee @ReadAtMidnight was kind enough to make me my own trainer card.
