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.
Air Awakens is an elemental story. It divides into 4 affinities. They are Firebearer, Windwalker, Groundbearer, and Waterruners. Each affinity has their favor geographical regions.
Vhalla Yarl is a library apprentice. She’s naïve and innocent. She also loves to read so that it captivates the reader. She didn’t even know that she has a magic until Prince Aldrik and Victor talked to her and said that she’s a sorcerer. Prince Aldrik is a coldhearted and arrogant but as the story unfolds I saw him has a soft spot but he didn’t want the other person to see it through.
Elise writing on the love interest between Aldik and Vhalla is remarkably different from other books that we read that they felt love at first sight. Though it has a moment when you adored someone. I think that her writing about the romance between them is by process and that is amazing.
While reading this book I found it’s slow paced because of the events that is happening especially when Vhalla doesn’t want to join on the Towers (this is where the sorcerers lived). BUT the ending left me speechless, let’s say that the ending is not what I expected it to be and that is why it is intriguing and edge of the seat book.
I highly recommended it to everyone who loves fantasy book
