Hello Fellow Readers,

I had this in my Kindle library for a long time and I finally decided that I wanted to read my TBR. I've read Kova's other works and enjoyed them so when I saw the cover and read the synopsis for Air Awakens I was intrigued. At first, I liked it, although I found Vhalla to be a bit whiney, and then she was thrown off a roof to make her wind powers manifest. It wasn't just a light shove and oh look, she's flying.

No, she hit roofs and broke ribs, scratched at buildings until her fingernails ripped off and she broke them, she smashed her head into walls. Her injuries were so severe that was in a coma for 3 days and had to be healed over the week with magic, but the prince who did it (her love interest be precise, one of three!) called her a worm because she was traumatized and didn't want to thank him.

I wanted to vomit.

Yes, He eventually reveals he is remorseful but still, TOXIC! No wonder people are afraid of sorcerers if they go throwing people off buildings! I know this is a young adult book, but should we really be teaching young minds that it's okay to be abused? Also, let us talk about Vhalla. I love books, I mean I have a blog and Instagram dedicated to them, but I also do other things. Vhalla has no personality besides books, if there is a hint of one in the vicinity then that is all Vhalla focuses on.

Also, remember how I mentioned that she seems a bit whiney? It gets worse. I understand that she doesn't want to be the last 'Airbender' or whatever but eventually, you need to make a decision and accept things. I don't often give books 1 star but everything in this one just screamed problematic.

Overall, Stay away.

Full review to come shortly.

Maybe less. Soooo disappointed. I really liked the book at the beginning, then it was just boring.

The ending pissed me off so much. Eldas is the one who said all those cruel things to Luella- why is she the one responsible for making up w him???

I thought the story was good, but it was a slow start.

Luella is a strong female lead and doesn't take crap from anyone. I thought the characters to be well developed, and had a tension and tenderness that builds the relationship between of Luella and Eldas.

For the first time, this book didn't leave me with a heavy, painful heart, needing time to recover before even contemplating reading the next instalment. That said... of course it was gooooooooooooood!

Worldbuilding was flawless as ever, all scenes and environments were clear and well described. The world that the author created just amazes me every time again. So full of lovely details and intricacies, I love it!

Character development was great, we actually dove very deep into the thoughts, feelings, dreams and nightmares of our beloved Alarik and Vhalla. We got to know them on an even deeper level and yeah, there was some laughter, but a lot of introspection and crying too. All characters within these books just keep on growing and finding their paths. They all feel so real and believable.

Pacing and flow were great. This instalment wasn't as heavy on the action as the previous ones were, but the balance between said action and all the conversations to keep the story moving forward was great. A slower pace, but damn those last few chapters!

All in all... oh boy... I really want to read the next book asap, but also not ever since it would mean the story has ended (yes, yes, I know there is also the Vortex series, but still!!!!)
Ah well, there is only one thing to say: Long live Solaris!
