It's been seven long years of work and planning that's led up to this moment... CRYSTAL CAGED is out in the world and the greater story arc that started all the way back in Air Awakens will be wrapped up with the end of Vi's journey.
This is so near an dear to my heart and I want to thank everyone who's read, reading, or will read this labor of love.
REMINDER: You don't need to read the original Air Awakens series to read Vortex Chronicles! ...more
And the truth is...I didnt love it...oh how that hurts 😭.
I think up until book 3 I was entirely INVESTED, and I just didnt enjoy the path the series followed after that.
Spoilers from this point on.
When the entire time-reset situation occurred and Vi found out she was actually Vi #93 I was intrigued but wary, because I dont really enjoy time-loops book that much. The last ...more
Warning, spoilers included...
This was the perfect ending of a great series that only Kova could have imagined. I don't read much time travel fiction so I'd never seen the whole concept of a continuous loop of reincarnations of the same character but once I understood that Vi was the same person like a video game on repeat, I was more invested and enjoyed the story.
That said, like many, I never fell in love with Vi and Taavin and that didn't change in this final book although I did ...more
An explosive ending people! After reading the Air Awakens series and now having finished this one nothing will ever be the same! Vi and Taavin have time to save the world from both nefarious villains and a vengeful god...or do they?
As they travel through time slowly trying to find the relics and also outpace their enemies, Vi will discover more new people and also meet old loved ...more
First, I want to say look at this cover. It is amazing. Honestly, the whole reason I picked up Air Awakens was that I fell in love with the cover. Every book in this series has had a beautiful cover, but this one just perfect.
On to the review. If you have not read any of the Vortex Chronicle books read at your own risk, there will probably be spoilers for the previous ...more
The number of times I had to stop and silently scream because oh my god.
I might have cried at the end of Chapter 33. I also might have cried at the end of Chapter 35. I definitely did not cry at the end of Chapter 40 or anything.
Y'all, this was the first time I've used post-its for a book to mark down all the places that made me shriek in delight/horror. There are at least 50 little post-it tabs in this sucker.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to go dry my tears and ...more
This book was mostly fine, but I think it suffered a lot because of how it was structured. Potential spoilers below I guess?
The frequent time skips were its weakest point, starting from the fact that it starts a number of years after the end of the previous book. There were also months and years skipped here and there throughout the book and while I understand it was necessary it also made for a read ...more
This last book was beautiful. We get the final battle between yargen and raspian. Vis vow for this to be the last time the vortex turns! We learn of stones in the river that cannot be changed in any life. Baldair, as much as I love to see him and miss him, he is a stone in the river. This book pieces together all the mysteries of previous books of the traveler that helped all our favorite characters. And it all makes sense now. It was beautiful and Perfect and i just cant express ...more
Air Awakens holds a very special place in my heart. It was the series that got me back into reading. So when Elise announced a sequel.... I died.
This final book in the series was everything. It was such an incredible experience to see what happened behind the scenes of Air Awakens. Everything ties in perfectly.
Elise is such a talented author and I can't wait to see what she brings ...more
[Warning, spoilers ahead]
this universe made myself invested since the beginning, i loved the fact that we explored new magic and a whole new continent, them traveling around it was one of the biggest plus for me, (but i can't deny i would have loved to have the physical copy so i could just go and check the maps once in a while because i messed up the names)
Vi and Taavyn romance had me crying a lot of times through out these book series, I don't know if i ...more
The story moved at a quick pace and had tons of action from famous scenes in the previous novels. It led to some tense moments, as well as some dark character arcs for Vi. To be honest I didn't expect her to act ...more
I had all my fingers and toes crossed for Vi and her mission in Crystal Caged. Her path was full of obstacles and curve balls but she hurdled and destroyed each one with determination and precision. I rooted hard for her to succeed and most definitely survive.
One character I grew ...more
And I knew that in that moment my hearth would shatter, I loved this series, the adventure of Vi through her lives, throug time, to finally meet her end.
I loved every single word in this book, Elise could'nt have written a better end for this beloved characters, and I'm already eager to continue the journey in Solaris in the next book of this beatuful world.
This series, the while Air Awakens world, has been a big part of my life. Ive followed these books from the beginning and I have grown to love these characters like family. Elise has built a crazy beautiful, stunningly intricate world that I will never get enough of. This book is beyond words. It was so intense and emotional. Elise, only one other author has made me cry during a book, you are now the second. There was a point in time while reading this I was bawling my eyes out, ...more
This book concludes Vi's thrilling journey in her efforts to stop the vortex and save the world. Once I started reading, I couldn't put the book down. The revelations are mind blowing. I can't think of much else I can say without spoiling anything, but this book, the entire series really, was completely mind blowing!
If you felt ...more
I was surprised by how much Id forgotten with the intervals between books, which was why the quick summary of each book at the beginning was incredibly helpful. Moving past that, the very first thing that hit me hard was returning to Solarin. The capital had been absent for the ...more
While I do have to admit I liked the Air Awakens series a little bit more, This series was also amazing. I loved the way everything in this book was wrapped up and some questions from The Air Awakens series were ...more
First Review in Vortex Visions: I'm half Meru (ethnic community in Kenya) and my name in short is Vi too. What are the odds. Got palpitations when Meru was mentioned.
Ps. Great series. I can wait for more, but I do not want to!
