Celebrating the End of Air Awakens | #Review: Air Awakens by Elise Kova | #AirAwakens #BlogTour @EliseKova #Giveaway

Air Awakens (Air Awakens #1)
by Elise Kova

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.

DISCLAIMER: I received a review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, also in honor of this amazing blog tour! All opinions are my own and, by no means, influenced by others. I have given myself a ban to restrain from giving spoilers (unless you have already read the book, you will understand). 

Vhalla Yarl may only be an apprentice, 'common-folk' if you will, but she is every bit as normal as you and I. She experiences feelings of enjoyment in the library, reading and learning her trade. She knows she is not one a prince should dare look at, but that does not stop her from simple day-dreams. Sorcery (magic if you will) is not something taken lightly, many who possess such ability are not entirely open about it. Such knowledge is locked away; however, it is still an ability that some possess and Vhalla Yarl is only just beginning to awaken with such. Vhalla does not see herself as any extraordinary; however, there are those who beg to differ and they do try to show her and make her believe.

In this book, not only do we meet amazing characters, but have amazing adventures in amazing places. The Air Awakens world is unique; there is none other like it. In my case, it took me a while to get into the book. I don't know why, but I did. But once I got into it, I was moving along and enjoying every second of it. There is intrigue and budding sentiments; a dashing young prince who goes by the title "The Heartbreaker Prince" and then there is the crown prince. But let's not go to deeply, because you might not come back out of it. Believe me, I am still trying to get out of it, without much luck.

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars.
I have to say that it took me long enough! I'm in love with this book (series)! I can honestly say that I finally understand, and I wish I had jumped on th band-wagon sooner. I mean, I've been part of the Tower Guard for a while, but somehow couldn't get into the series, things kept coming up. But I've finally read it, I love it; I want to keep reading the series and I know I will, like last week. Elise, you are an amazing author. I love the way everything unfolded. Vhalla's Bond with Prince Aldrik was thoroughly thought out. I've said it before and I will say it again, the covers! Merilliza Chan, the cover artist, did an AMAZING job.
