Hi there, kiddos! SO, I honestly could not put the first two books in the Air Awakens series down so… I’ve kind of already finished book 2, Fire Falling!!! Here is my review. Seriously, you guys, put everything down and go read these immediately. GO!
I almost feel speechless and unable to articulate just how much I loved this book and how hard it is going to be to wait until Earth’s End comes out!! I was just as obsessed with this book as I was Air Awakens and feel JUST as excited to start book 3 when it’s out. (I’ve pre-ordered it and the fourth book…)
In this book, unlike the first, Vhalla goes through a grieving and hardening process to prepare herself for her journey into soldier-hood and war. It is painful at times to watch her struggle, but at no point do you feel her suffering is pointless. Her friendships deepen and feel real. Her relationship with Aldrik progresses and yet holds tension spectacularly. I honestly don’t want to say too much and give anything away.
I hope you’ll give this entire series a shot. It has been years since I’ve stumbled across a series with characters I’ve grown so attached to and love to pieces. Elise Kova’s single character point of view builds our intimate connection with Vhalla as she goes through the hardest days of her life and I know I’ll be there cheering her on in Book 3 and all the rest!
