Summary:
A Library Apprentice, a Sorcerer Prince, and an Unbreakable Magic Bond…

The Solaris Empire is one conquest away from uniting the continent, and the rare elemental magic sleeping in seventeen-year-old library apprentice Vhalla Yarl could shift the tides of war.

And with powerful forces lurking in the shadows, Vhalla’s indecision could cost her more than she ever imagined.

The Crystal Tour

CT-Banner-2

I’ve got mixed emotions about this one. I’m happy to bring you my stops on the Crystal Tour…but I’m sad that we’re coming to the end of a great series!

The Air Awakens series, by Elise Kova, is a fantasy series that follows 17 year old library apprentice Vhalla Yarl as she unwittingly saves the kingdoms Prince and is pulled into the world of sorcerers and magic.

I love the Air Awakens series, and the fifth and final book, Crystal Crowned, is coming out on July 12th.  In the lead up to its release there’s a blog tour where people will be sharing their reviews of the first four books, an amazing raffle and a few other treats.

You can join me on the next four Mondays as I share my reviews of the books so far;

“The ability to command the smallest amount of moisture makes Waterrunners practical sorcerers with a variety of applications such as illusions and the creation of ice weaponry. Like your element, you’re adaptable and can ebb and flow with the tides of any situation. People may mistake your flexibility for being fickle, but once you set your mind to something you will accomplish any task. You embody unassuming strength.”
