*ARC copy provided by author in exchange for an honest review*

I’m sure this is the book all fans of The Dreamland series have been waiting for, me included, and it did not disappoint!

This book goes through a few events that happened in The Dreamer but they’re in Dev’s POV. We get to see Terra through the eyes of a citizen instead of a visitor and it was an amazing experience. We also get to see his smoothness with the ladies and I can’t believe I’m saying this, but he made me swoon even harder. Those blue eyes will forever drive me insane. His intensity and protectiveness over Molly made me fall in love with him all over again. I keep doing that and honestly, I don’t know how many times I can handle it. His sense of humor is the best; he had me laughing and smiling uncontrollably. I can always count on E.J. to deliver what I crave most and Dev is definitely somebody I can’t, and won’t, get enough of.

I loved that this book came out after book 2 and before book 3. I was already in dire need of a dose of these amazing characters and this breath-taking world. This book gave it to me without fail. Only, negative thing I have to say is that it resurfaced all of my hurt feelings over The Divide. Thanks a lot, E.J.

No, but really, thank you for feeding my addiction to your world.

I want a part two so bad!!!! (E.J., are you taking notes? I’ll take them for you if you’re not) I want, no, I NEED to know his thoughts on the events that happened on The Divide. Please! Jesus, just thinking about that book makes me want to break apart all over again. That book shattered me and I must know his exact thoughts and actions and everything we couldn’t see through Molly’s eyes. I need everything, even if it’s my own doom.

Last but not least, HAPPY RELEASE DAY to you E.J., my amazing friend!!!!!

Librarian turned sorcerer. Sorcerer turned hero. Hero turned puppet.

The Solaris Empire found victory in the North and, at the cost of her heart and her innocence, Vhalla Yarl has earned her freedom. But the true fight is only beginning as the secret forces that have been lurking in the shadows, tugging at the strings of Vhalla’s fate, finally come to light. Nowhere is safe, and Vhalla must tread carefully or else she’ll fall into the waiting arms of her greatest foe. Or former lover.

A word from Elise Kova about her thoughts on the Covers’ Symbolism So Far:

Six months ago, almost to the day, Air Awakens came out. It was my debut novel as an independent author, no publisher and no agent behind me, and I had no idea what would come of it. Now, six months later, I can’t believe I’m revealing the cover on the fourth book of the Air Awakens series.

I say every cover is my favorite, because it gets harder and harder to pick. Each of the covers, in their own way, has been perfect for the book they belong with. My cover artist, Merilliza Chan, is amazing at taking direction and incorporating my suggestions.

Part of why each cover is perfect is because there are little hints, teasers, and call-outs to the story within. Without giving too many spoilers, here’s a couple notes on each of the Air Awakens covers so far!

Air Awakens

First off, notice how Vhalla’s sash is black. In the book, the sash that goes with her apprentice robes is cerulean. This, combined with her robes slowly turning black around the back of the cover is indicative of sorcery making a mark on her. But she hasn’t yet committed, she has yet to don all-black robes. The wind in her hair and sense of movement is a call-out to her affinity. The book in her hands, is representative of three things: her work in the library, the book she exchanges notes in, and the book she brings to the garden. Which, speaking of, the roses around her… well, if you’ve read the book you know what, or who, those are meant to symbolize. But I told Meril I wanted something ominous, something wicked about them. And the thorns going through them were perfect!

Fire Falling

Here is the first cover we see our dark prince on. Fire Falling is named after three incidents in the book… When Aldrik falls to his knees before Vhalla in the Crossroads, the Rites of the FALLen in the Crossroads for another, and the end of the book. Since two of the three aspects of the title of the book related to Aldrik it was only natural that he had to be on the cover. In Fire Falling, Aldrik is beginning to function as a guiding force for Vhalla and, on the cover, he’s looking over his shoulder at her. He can’t openly admit to their association. Vhalla’s eyes are glowing orange and she’s alight, immersed in flame. This was done to symbolize their Bond and Joining. That not only can his flames not harm her, but that he is connected on a mental and magical level. She is also wearing the armor Aldrik crafted for her.

Earth’s End

Now, the symbolism is beginning to get heavy. Vhalla is alone again on the cover, venturing into the wilderness. She’s almost facing the camera, symbolizing how she is growing into her own and becoming a more realized person. In the sky above her is a fire bird. We literally see this formed in the book, but it also is symbolic of a phoenix, rising from its own ashes. I think this works for Vhalla and Aldrik in their own ways through Earth’s End. The cloak she’s wearing is the one she receives from Tim with slash marks. The watch in her hand was gifted to her. And, in her other hand, we see a special sort of magic… Finally, one other note… Carved into a tree that’s on the back of printed books is a symbol – that is actually the symbol of Shaldan!
