A princess on the run, with enemies on all sides...
Vi Solaris is on the eve of getting everything she’s ever wanted—her family, her home, her throne—and to save the world she’s going to have to give it all up.
The Empire sees her as their Crown Princess, returning at long last. But Vi only sees visions of fate guiding her to the world’s gruesome end. Across the sea is a m...more

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
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
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.
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 amaz ...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
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 h ...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
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
Title: Chosen Champion (Air Awakens: Vortex Chronicles #2)
Author: Elise Kova
Pub. Date: May 1, 2019
I received an eARC of Chosen Champion via its author – Elise Kova – in exchange for an honest review. It will be spoiler free!
Oh my god. Oh my god. Ohmygod. I still cannot believe that I was able to read this early, and it’s been roughly two weeks since I read it. I’m so grateful that I was able to, and now able to ...more
Ahem. I was fortunate enough to read an ARC of this beauty. And can we just talk bout these covers? They're killing it.
Kova brings the heat in book 2. I really enjoyed VV, but I loved, I SAID LOVED CC. This seems to be a pattern with me in every series I read of hers (and yes, I've read them all.)
You want heat? Well you'll get it, figuratively. You want Ice cold? You'll get that too. You want friendship, heart-breaking betrayal, a slow-burn romance? Check, check, che ...more

While the beginning of this book doesn't expand too much on the world as a whole, you get a deeper and different look at parts of t ...more
For me, who loved air wakens dearly this was just so sad! everything I had found peace with in the first books just went to hell. This is like my worst nightmare, seeing what horrible fate happened to Aldrik and Vallah. They missed their happy ever after, something they deserved more than anyone else, ending up giving away their daughter not having the family they wanted, and now this... I wish I never started on vortex chronicles!!!! And now Daniel once ag ...more
I mean, I’m not surprised at how amazing this book is. Kova has a way of spinning gold with her words. She creates such amazing characters that you love, and characters that you absolutely hate but can sometimes relate to.
I really don’t want to have to wait till the end of July to read the next addition to this book if I’m bringing honest.
Vortex Visions is an amazing book that seamlessly blends world building and character development while furthering t ...more
A beautiful addition in this fascinating series set in such a dangerous and fantastical world! Ms. Kova has such a knack for creating fantasy worlds and describing them so that I feel as if I’m exploring them right along with the characters themselves! Heartbreaking and adventurous, Chosen Champion does not disappoint and while answering many questions creates more in its wake and much anticipation to know the fate of our dear Vi Solaris and her sweet ...more
I got bored halfway through the book. It felt like nothing was happening and the end was predictable.
Vi has an insurmountable task ahead of her. The end of the world will happen if she can't stop it by the end of the next book. This level of consequences doesn't really appeal to me, but I loved Air Awakens, so I thought I'd continue to follow the series.
There is some advancement in this book in Vi and Taavin's romance. It's a little disappointing, though, because he gives s ...more
DNF at 30%
I just can't do it with this series. The original series, Air Awakens, was amazing and I would recommend it to any fantasy lover, but this spin-off sequel series just falls short in every form of the word. I did the majority of my complaining in my review of the first book, but when I started reading the first few chapters of this one I realized just how much I really couldn't continue with this series ...more
