FIRE FALLING (Air Awakens #2) by Elise Kova:Review


Soldier… Sorcerer… Savior… Who is Vhalla Yarl?

Vhalla Yarl marches to war as property of the Solaris Empire. The Emperor counts on her to bring victory, the Senate counts on her death, and the only thing Vhalla can count on is the fight of her life. As she grapples with the ghosts of her past, new challenges in the present threaten to shatter the remnants of her fragile sanity. Will she maintain her humanity? Or will she truly become the Empire’s monster?

Fire Falling is the second book in the Air Awakens Series.

                                         *WARNING:There may be some spoilers*
WOW is the first thing that comes to mind when I think about this book.
The starting captured my attention right away and I became engrossed in the book from that point on wards and had trouble putting it down to perform even my everyday tasks.A lot happened in this book, more than what happened in the first one.It showed me the bond of friendship and love.It was good to see how amazing Vhalla's friends were along with her friendship with Aldrik and how their feelings blossomed.Most of the characters were very much likable except a few who although, to my amazement, were not as bad as they seemed at first.This book made me change my opinion on a lot of characters,teaching me an important lesson that first impressions shouldn't always be the last impressions.It was good to see that in Elise Kova's fantasy world,females were a part of the army and were equal to the men.Another thing I liked was how Vhalla had to be trained and did not automatically become an expert on fighting like how it is shown in most books.And her training focused not only on her magical abilities but also on her physical ones,so that she was not only reliant on her magic.I also got to see much more of Vhalla and Aldrik together,which was so cute <3.The moments between them were just amazing.One thing I absolutely LOVED was that we got to see some glimpses of Aldrik's past and thoughts through Vhalla. Another thing in the books favor was that it stayed true to its name and much of it was about fire along with being given information about the different abilities that come with the different elements.I liked how she did not get this information all at once and there are multiple things that the sorcerors can do that we do not yet know about. There are some things that I would love to know more about and questions whose answers I wish were given. 
There are very few books that have managed to make me cry and this was one of them.By the end,I was left emotionally exhausted after experiencing all the feels.But it was definitely worth it.


Elise Kova has always had a profound love of fantastical worlds. Somehow, she managed to focus on the real world long enough to graduate with a Master's in Business Administration before crawling back under her favorite writing blanket to conceptualize her next magic system. She currently lives in St. Petersburg, Florida, and when she s not writing can be found playing video games, watching anime, or talking with readers on social media. She is the author of the Air Awakens Series as well as the upcoming Loom Saga (Keymaster, 2017).
