I'm not using this for a review, but as a place to share some information about CHOSEN CHAMPION (Air Awakens: Vortex Chronicles, #2). If you want to know about book one, click here.
CHOSEN CHAMPION is the second book of Air Awakens: Vortex Chronicles. While you don't have to read the original Air Awakens series to jump into this world. You do have to read the first book of Vortex Chronicles, VORTEX VISIONS to understand what's going on in book two.

"She never thought she could give up her life while still breathing."
My mind is still reeling from what I just read so I hope this all makes sense.
This is the sequel to Vortex Visions, a spin off series that follows Vhalla's daughter.
The first half of this book had a slow pace but it was definitely important in leading us into the second half... which is another matter entirely. It was so intense that I barely remembered to b ...more
I really enjoyed this second installment of the Vortex Chronicles series, and let me just say once again that I keep being so impressed with Elise Kova's ability to come out with one high fantasy novel every three months. That's such an incredible pace and a blessing for us readers that don't have to wait long before reading the next book. I just want to put this out there if she ever r ...more
What a great second book to the series and all of the adventures that Vi must complete in order to save the world.
Enjoyable and written perfectly with all of the anticipation building to the climax of the story.
I was not expecting that ending which only excites me more for the next book in the series.
This is the second book in the Air Awakens spin-off Vortex Visions that follows the adventures of the daughter of Valla. Now for me, you really should read Air Awakens first but it not necessary you just get more invested in these characters if you do. So if you want more inclusion go pi ...more
Also – I was provided with an e-arc of this book in exchange for an honest review. Thank you thank you to Elise Kova for the opportunity and I’m so excited to share my thoughts! I am HORRIBLE at reviewing sequels of series so BEAR WITH ME:
This is book two in Elise’s continuation/companion series to Air Awakens. I highly recommend the Air Awakens series & reading it before this next installment. Vortex Visions was an amazing ...more
READ THIS REVIEW ON MY BLOG!!!
welcome to this year’s second edition of ELISE KOVA IS AN AMAZING FANTASY WRITER AND SHE DESERVES MORE ATTENTION, SHE’S LITERALLY PUSHING OUT APPROXIMATELY THREE BOOKS A YEAR FOR Y’ALL TO OVERLOOK HER WORK LIKE THIS???
truly, Elise Kova never ceases to amaze me. she writes unapologetically, and you can tell from MILES away that she cares deeply for her characters and the stories she chooses to tell. the world of Air Awakens keeps e ...more
Chosen champion was a sequel worthy of its characters and full of unstoppable movemtn and action. As Vi tries to find a way to reachTaavin, the danger of the epidemic of the White Death spreads and no one is safe anymore. There are many twists and turns in this book with mysyteries and prophecies that may or may not come true.
I also fear that Taavin knows that either he or Vi will die ...more
But I do come out of it feeling like the story wasn't quite balanced.
For a story seeking this larger-than-life plot, it somehow feels unbalanced and at times very empty, as there's not even a lot of character introspection or interpersonal relationships to work off of. I'd anticipated the se ...more
Once again, Elise Kova easily draws you back into the world. It's everything familiar and beloved. The atmosphere really comes through in Elise's writing. With the White Death still looming and spreading over the Empire we feel just how dire the situation is becoming. An ...more
Chosen Champion is wonderful!! A feeling of wonder never left me all through reading this book.
While Vortex Vision re-introduced/remade the Air Awakens World, Chosen Champion is a brilliant and dashing adventure that kept me turning the pages eagerly.
Continuing from where the previous book left off, Crown Princess Vi is still working on her magic with her fated companion Taavin while working hard to figure out the location of the next Apex to explore.
The fate of the world still hangs in balance ...more
If you read and loved the Air Awakens series be prepared for many Easter eggs throughout the Vortex Visions series, locations, people, and etc make their way into each book.
Vi is very much like her mother Vhalla, and also very much like her father, Aldrik. She's as stubborn as them. She makes hasty decisions like them and she is strong like them. I'm loving where her character development is goin ...more
This is a transition novel. The goal of it is to move Vi from the empire to the crescent continent. I was hoping she would get here a little sooner but the book end with her finally getting to the crescent continent. I think I’ll enjoy book 3 more, this one was a get there already book.
I really like Vi. Taavin gets more development in this one too. It was nice to see news from c ...more
What an incredible read!!!! Elise Kova has really outdone herself with twists and drama and EMOTION. I felt that kick to the gut pretty damn hard.
I need more. I need more NOW.
This was an excellent second book for this series. It was awesome to see old places and familiar people through new eyes. The first book gave us a unique view o the North. A view of a newly conquered nation. The nation that Vi grew up in, the one that shaped her. Seeing the rest of the world through her eyes was completely different from what Vhalla saw in her time.
Vi's character grew so much from the first time we met her. She learned of the world around her and ...more
I LIKED THE BEGINNING AND THE END.
BLOG || INSTAGRAM
But what happened in the middle? Nothing. That’s what happened.
Started off strong with Vi getting to FINALLY see her family again, YAY. I was so excited to see Vhalla and her brother Romulin. I was mostly on bored with Vi’s decision to leave her family so she can save her nation, but when she started that journey I got lost in the bogged down story.
I didn’t think it was going to take the ENTIRE book to get Vi from one place to the other ...more
I had some personal problems with this book. It’s, by no means, a bad one; probably most of the issues I found are mine alone.
The first thing that failed me about the story was, with no doubt, the romance part. I almost wish there wasn’t any, and that’s a big thing to say for someone like me who wants her books with it, even if it’s just a hint. It was just so fast and not credible. I couldn’t buy into it. It felt forced (weird as fuck for me to say that words), and it went from distru ...more
- Lightspinning is the coolest magic EVER and I love seeing more of it in book 2
- A lot more background information and scene setting but still a fast-paced read
- Elise leaves me breathless with all the plot twists and turns and that betrayal...I seriously had to remember to breath at points
First I would like to thank Elise Kova for sending me an eARC in exchange for my honest review! I have been anxiously awaiting th ...more
In terms of the romance, I would've liked to have seen the dynamic between Taavin and Vi be drawn out a lot longer. I feel like they got together pretty quickly and I'm curious if the sexual tension ...more
I made the mistake of reading a review for Chosen Champion prior to starting the book. Although it offered no spoilers, the review did drop some hints and I was suspicious of everything and everyone in the book. Then again, this is Elise Kova we’re talking about. You can never let your guard down when reading Kova’s books.
Despite my suspicions, I was still thoroughly surprised by the end th ...more
Thank you so much to Elise Kova for providing a copy of this book for review.
Let me say I am so happy Elise decided to continue writing this universe. In this story Vi has to confront things about herself and those around her. There are major twists and this story and i can’t help but think a few clues for the next couple of books. I absolutely loved it once I got through the first few chapters, they were necessary but it did come off kinda slow at first. Push through it is certainly worth it!
