Publisher's Summary

All Vhalla wanted for her seventeenth birthday was a book.... What she got was the attention of a dark and fiery prince and a rare elemental magic.

After unknowingly saving the life of the crown prince with powers she's not supposed to have, Vhalla must make a choice: Embrace her sorcery and leave the quiet life she's known, or eradicate her magic entirely.

But the choice isn't hers alone. Powerful forces who want to use her magic for their own gain lurk in the shadows, and the only ally Vhalla may have is the cut-throat Crown Prince Aldrik. He's everything she's been taught to fear—a sorcerer and royalty—but beneath his harsh exterior is the heart of a tortured man she finds herself dangerously drawn to.

He might be the last person she ever wanted. But he's the one person she needs. And, with his training, she'll show the Empire what a quiet library girl is truly capable of.

Wow!

After reading several "not able to put it down" books by Elise in a row, I got this entire series in audiobook because I HAD to get some things done. Caitlin Kelly's performance combined with Elise's story meant I couldn't stop listening! This series has it all! Exciting battles, friendships, enemies, political intrigue, discovering your power, magic, arranged marriages, the healing arts, and a well done improbable, slowburning, earth shattering romance. I can't wait to get the sequel but was heartbroken when I listened to the audio sample. It isn't Caitlin Kelly again : ( The new narrator's voice is so grating that I couldn't even listen to the entire sample. Now I have to decide between Elise's sequel or another authors series recorded by Caitlin. Maybe I'll just listen to this entire series again!

Very long drawn out Angst

I was excited to get such a long Sorcery Fantasy Fiction set of books for a single credit. The book starts out great! You have someone of low social rank develop a unique magical gift. The development of the romance was nice. The problem I had with this book is this: I continually got the feeling that the author did not feel comfortable progressing the story. They author would instead double down on the angst the Main character was feeling about EVERY SINGLE LITTLE THING. I made it about 12-15 hours hoping that once the Main Character had finally sorted and sifted through her feelings about everyone, maybe the book would have the main character go off and do something. And maybe that is exactly what happens! I know that when I start to fast forward through chapters to see if the book goes anywhere....its not worth it to me to continue. I am not saying that will be the case for everyone. I could be the only one that feels that way but I'm going to go listen to one of Sanderson's series and pay a credit for each book instead of finishing this 5-6 book set.

5***** Must Listen!!!!!

Caitlin Kelly's narration on these newly revised audiobooks truly brings each character to life, enhancing the storyline.

Air Awakens series takes my emotions on a roller coaster ride, one on which I will ride over and over. I read the series about a year ago. Now upon finishing the audiobooks, I experienced the same emotions as if it were the first time. The series is so well-written. It's filled with humor, magic, crystals, bonds, love, friendships, betrayal, fear, destiny, trust, symbols, respect, sacrifice, loss, freedom, acceptance, admiration, fate, heartache, war, hardship, redemption, hope.

Well-developed characters who show strength and growth throughout. Intricately detailed world-building.

I could not stop reading

I have been reading Fantasy sci fi paranormal for over 40 yrs I don’t ever write reviews but this Book series was one of my top 3 books I have read !!! I could not stop reading it . I laughed I cried <<very rare for me to do. I finished it in 4 days I also did not sleep for 2 of them the only thing I was a bit disappointed about how the epilogue was handled It should of stayed in the eyes of Vhalla or Aldrik not the Lady of the west .. I felt like they where things as the reader left me to guess about the Twins about northern clan about Sara about a few other things.. I can only hope Elise Kova takes pity on all of us and writes a 6th book …

Engaging the whole way through!

This book was very well written. I loved the character development, and that the author wasn’t intimidated by incorporating difficult situations. Usually with a complete series this long I lose interest about half way through, but this one has twists and turns the whole time that kept me guessing about what would happen next.

I just love Elise Kova

I was gifted the complete series on audiobook to review, all thoughts and opinions are my own, thank you Elise Kova.


Another great series by Elise Kova. This is not my favourite series of Elise's, but I did thoroughly enjoy the development of Vhalla's character across the series. I felt I had no idea what twist and turn Elise was going to send Vhalla's way and her companions next and there was a lot of hardship along the way.

A great enemies to lovers romance, forced/accidental proximity and found family trope example in this series and I was here for it. The magic system was brilliantly crafted, world building very well written and I really liked how brutal Elise was to these characters. I always like a book that has concequences and some loss for the characters, as that is part of life.

This is not a fairytale and our 'hero' is not welcomed by everyone, everywhere she goes and even those she is helping with her magic do not show their gratefulness for all that she does and sacrifices. I felt for Vhalla, throughout the series but I was glad she got the ending she did. Even if she did make a very silly bargain. I am excited to see how that plays out in the vortex series and how all of these books in this world tie together!

Narrators performance is definitely one of my favourites, I could listen to Caitlin Kelly all day!

Would definitely recommend for YA Fantasy readers, who love magic and a brutal roller-coaster for the main character, with a sprinkling of romance!

Still one of the best series I have ever read

When I first read this series book one didn't grip me, but the narrator gave a whole different experience and honestly made every moment in this series enjoyable. This story has everything that you could want from relatable characters, realistic relationship development as well as being an incredibly entertaining story.

Vhalla get's 'awoken' into her powers in a pretty spectacular way, and after she is told she struggles with the notion that she is now a sorcerer. Ironic, seeing as her powers are highly sought after and thought to be something that doesn't exist any more. Once aware of her new state she is given a choice to accept her new fate and train as a sorcerer or eradicate her powers completely. I love how the character progression between Vhalla and Aldrik goes throughout the book and although much of the first half the book focuses on her overcoming her misinformed perception of sorcerers and fear of rejection by her friends, it's definitely worth the read.

The pacing definitely slows down a little with book two, which is amazing because you can delve further into the story and fall in love, but there's a lot more action to compensate. Although this book furthered the story, I feel it focused more on developing characters. The side characters in this book are fantastic and really make the story flow. The ending will have you on the edge on your seat too.

Earth's End picks up right where Fire's Falling ends, and thankfully satisfies all our questions about whats happened. While Vhalla may be the Emperor's pawn she's also a force to be reckoned with. Thankfully the self-doubting Vhalla is gone and has been replaced with the girl who knows she's more powerful than everything thinks, and there are several parts of the book where she showcases her affinity for her powers.

There are a few new characters introduced in Earth's End, which means new alliances are formed, as well as the rift between the princes being to close. I also love how the character development means there's a sibling-esque relationship between Baldair and Vhalla. Some characters get neglected a little as well but it's all for a good reason. Just like Fire's Falling, we are left with another cliff hanger, as well as some explosive twists and turns which take note on character and reader emotions.

By the time we get to Water's Wrath you, as a reader, will feel like you have been through everything with Vhalla. She's gone from being a shy librarian to a powerful Windwalker. There will be times where you had doubts for Prince Aldrik but I promise you this book will make you wish you hadn't! I had tears in my eyes at some points in this book and words cannot describe how much I loved it. Devoured in one morning!

Crystal Crowned is everything you want in a book for the end of a series. It's dark, ugly and bleak, you're emotions are constantly thrown from good to bad, happy to crying. Our heroes are doing everything they possibly can to defeat the corrupt evil that has taken over their world, while still holding onto one small bit of happiness.

Overall this series has taken a deep root in my heart and is a must read for every fantasy lover. It's easy to read, as well as gripping from the very start. I well and truly loved this series.

Loved this series!

Some parts of this were semi-predictable YA fantasy tropes, but overall I loved the world building and the slow burn romance across the books. I was in suspense the whole way and having all the books together as one package had such smooth transitions that it was a great 'reading' experience. The narration was great overall. This was everything I was looking for in a series - action, romance, characters' personal growth and interesting twists. I loved it and I enjoyed Elise Kova's writing style - I hadn't read any of her books before but will definitely be reading some more of hers!

Good series and definitely worth the listen.

I enjoyed this series although sometimes, Valour seemed to give up too easily while at others, she was quite stubborn. Nice resolution. I would love to see how the story could continue.
