Author: Elise Kova
Pub. Date: October 15, 2019
Vi was supposed to be the perfect crown princess. Then, she abandoned her throne.
Vi was supposed to save the world as its Champion. Then, the world she loved vanished.
Now, all she knows is that she has deadly magic and brutal cunning and she’s ready to settle some scores.
Old loves and new allies tell her to play it safe. But Vi is done with caution. She has a chance to right ancient wrongs and this princess-turned-warrior isn’t turning back.
She’s ready to bring an end to the vortex of death the world is trapped in.
This will be a spoiler free review. I want to profusely thank Elise for gifting me an early copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Before I jump into the actual review, I just want to quickly shout out HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY/RELEASE DAY to Sovereign Sacrifice and to Elise! You can grab your copy today! If you haven’t yet read any books in the Air Awakens world, then you’re seriously missing out and should rectify that immediately. Even better, you can start with the Vortex Chronicles, or the original Air Awakens Series, or even the Golden Guard Trilogy! Personally, I would recommend Golden Guard, Air Awakens, Vortex Chronicles, but it’s totally up to you!
I should not be writing this review right now.
I’m not okay.
I legit just finished reading
What do you mean I have to WAIT for book five? For Crystal Caged?
I’ll just be over here sobbing in a corner while I wait.
Once again Elise has knocked it so far out of the park that the ball is currently still heading away from Earth. I mean, oh my god. At the end of Failed Future I was shocked and had no clue what to expect Vi to do next. Vi does everything in this book and then some and we saw some sides to her that surprised me. She definitely goes through some major character developments in this book, and despite being slapped in the face with the fact that “the world she knew was gone” Vi handles herself very well. I’m so excited to see how Vi pulls off her plan devised at the end of this book.
Old and new faces resurface in this book, and the very future of the world is at stake. No pressure right? Vi has to navigate this world carefully, but what would you try and do to save the future?
I honestly don’t know what to say because I just want to scream about every single little thing that happened in this book, but S P O I L E R S. At this point it is kind of hard to talk about vague occurrences because we’re so deep in this narrative. A slight misstep could ruin so many mind-blowing moments that Elise has so artfully crafted.
This is one of those series (the whole Air Awakens World) that I wish I could actually scrub from my mind and experience for the first time all over again. With each new book, Elise continues to solidify her place as one of my all-time favorite fantasy authors – easily top five, no, top three. I fall in love with her writing with each new book and the sheer intricacy of her worlds and her characters. I’m super excited and honestly, a bit anxious to see what she does in Crystal Caged and whether or not Vi is going to be successful in her journey.
I’ll say it again, if you haven’t yet picked up these books, please do so. I’m forever glad that Facebook targeted an ad for Air Awakens at me. I would have been seriously missing out and wouldn’t have fallen in love with these characters. Sovereign Sacrifice is out today, so pick up your copy and dive in!
