Water's Wrath (Air Awakens Series #4) by Elise Kova

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.

Well just rip my heart out and leave me to die, why don't you Elise? This author and this series get more and more intense as they go on and i Love it. We last saw Vhalla deciding to set off on her own after helping win the war over the North and WW finds her about a couple months later in the crossroads. But the small set of peace that Vhalla has found for herself will not last. Between the batshit crazy Knights of Jadar and the Solaris Family, Vhalla must weave careful trails while trying to find out all she can about the Knights, the Crystal Axe she carries and the Crystal Cavern's themselves. WW is ripe with the beloved characters we all know and love, soo many beloved side characters like Jax, Baldiar, & Fritz. And this disclaimer should be at the start of every book by Elise Kova " NO ONE IS SAFE" like serously. Dont get attached to anyone bc odds are they won't make it. I s2g if Fritz dies in CC, im going to cry and then riot. The plot is really interesting and we finally know the history of the Great Crystal War & Egmun & whether or not you can trust the Minister of the Tower, Viktor. I actually really liked WW even with the angst between Vhalla & Aldrik bc i felt like this was a big character growth for Vhalla. She knew she could live without Aldrik and always tried to stand firm in her beliefs no matter what. She even let herself trust and confide in Fritz which was absolutely amazing. Also if you loved Larel, grab some kleenex because she makes a cameo that will rip your heart out and make you cry. Seriously. This book definitely earns all 5 of the stars i've rated it with.

Spoiler-free Review: If the end of Earth’s End broke your heart, Water’s Wrath starts to put those pieces back together again. Only to completely crush it. This is one of the hardest reviews I have had to write to avoid spoilers, so I’ll primarily focus on the characters and only briefly touch on the storyline. One of the things that really attracted me to this series was that the romance between Vhalla and Aldrik feels real. While both had previously dabbled in romances, this is their first real love. Most books portray first love as all rainbows and sunshine with some superficial hardship thrown in, in an attempt to create drama. Kova doesn’t do this. While she does show us the elation that coincides with love, she also shows us how it can be an all-consuming and a destructive force. Love isn’t always a good thing and it’s possible to love someone too much and loose ourselves in the process. The conclusion of EE was a result of this and Vhalla and Aldrik’s love erupted like a volcano, destroying their hearts in its process. Water’s Wrath deals with the aftermath of that explosion. In each book we see Vhalla grow more and more as a person, and this book is no exception as Vhalla struggle with that explosion and heartbreak. Now that Vhalla is no longer with Aldrik, she is able to truly reflect on herself, and finds peace and balance. We finally see her reach a maturity that the entire series has been building towards. It was refreshing to see Vhalla focus on her friendships, which have become neglected in previous books. Vhalla and Baldair’s relationship is especially beautiful. Even though she is no longer with Aldrik, Baldiar considers Vhalla his sister and there were some very touching moments between the two. In addition, we see tremendous character development with Aldrik as he gains a new maturity and finds himself. In previous books he had been referred to as emotionally stunted. No longer. He has faced his inner fire demons (I just couldn’t resist) and like a phoenix, has transformed into exactly the type of Emperor the Solaris empire needs. As for the story, we finally see questions that have plagued us for the entire series answered. Kova is a strong writer, and has carefully weaved a complex storyline with little hints throughout the series for the reader to decipher. Many of these come together. Most noteably, Aldrik’s sorid past is revealed and we gain new perspective on his behaviors and attitudes in the previous books. If you’re waiting for CC to still be released, now is a good time to re-read the series through this different lens. True to form, Kova throws in some actions packed twists and turns and is not afraid to kill off beloved characters. Our hearts are once again put through the wringers. And then stomped on. While the end does leave us highly anticipating Crystal Crowned, it wraps up nicely and isn’t as brutal as some of the previous cliffhangers.

Vhalla left everyone at the end of book 3 with her freedom and status as Lady, at the cost of her heart and prince. book 4 finds her in the West, hiding out in of all things, a small library. And while the action pace of this book is slower than book 3, it is by no means slow. Character development continues to improve, the secondary characters like Fritz, Baldair, Jax, Elecia and others are awesome and Aldrik is having to figure out how to deal with the darkness that clings to his soul. Add in the princess from the north he's now betrothed to and life for him is definitely not where he'd thought it'd be. Who can she truly trust? This book will bring out the tears and angst as well as a few twists and turns setting it up for the final book out this summer.

5/5 Stars Every time I pick up one of Elise Kova's books I get so freaking excited to read. With another gorgeous cover and an enveloping story, Water's Wrath takes us along as Vhalla's next chapter begins. There is tons of heart and plenty of feels to be had as the war in the North comes to an end. With new enemies coming out of the woodwork and a return to the capitol for the first time since the Night of Fire and Wind, there is never a dull moment with this book. Character wise this one was all about an independent Vhalla and the bonds of friendship. Our girl is all grown up and ready to dig deeper into the past to discover a better future. Instead of heavily relying on the people around her she is working in tandem with them. Jax has quickly become one of my favorite characters and his interactions with each and every person are just the best. Out of the four this one really showcases the friendships that have been building and I'm glad to see it. Never fear though there's romance too. I realized as I started reading that I have grown accustomed to Elise's writing. It felt like returning to an old friend. Familiar, consistent, a home away from home. The ebb and flow lulling me into a false sense of security time after time. The plotting of this story has been excellent with so many pieces to the puzzle. Everything is connected, an intricacy to it all. Her books warrant rereading just to find all the little hints and clues that I missed the first time around. For me, a good book elicits emotion from a reader. Whether it be overwhelming joy or unending turmoil, there is connection with the narrative. Water's Wrath completely surpassed the rest of the Air Awakens series in terms of emotional upheaval. I cried during a good portion of this book. It was the unexpected that got me as I was reading and it happened more than once. I don't know if my heart will be able to survive Crystal Crowned. Overall Elise Kova's Water's Wrath was another brilliant installment in the Air Awakens series. With a still expanding world and depth of character, Kova has not slowed down or faltered. It's full of emotional ups and downs that will leave you reeling and yet wanting more at the same time. I absolutely love this series and hope that if you haven't started it all ready that you'll definitely give it a shot. It just keeps getting better and better!

This book blew me away, and I am going to try to explain why and how without spoiling it or the previous three books, so I will likely have to keep this short. First, Vhalla is as amazing as ever. And she's going through some stuff. Some big stuff. Like, life in upheaval sort of stuff. And since she is kind of the best character ever, she deals with it like we would: trying to be graceful, but only partly succeeding. The true draw to Vhalla has been and still is how relatable she is no matter how powerful she becomes or how low she falls. Some characters morph completely; Vhalla grows but never replaces her true self- just builds upon it. But she definitely evolves, no question, as she faces difficulties that would be insurmountable to most of us. This book is my favorite of the series so far, without a doubt. Emotionally, I was all over the place, which to me is the best way for a book to be. I had no idea what the fate of characters or plotlines would be, because with the Air Awakens series, nothing and no one is ever safe. There were enough lighter moments to make me not drown in my emotions (but it was close ;) ). So many relationships are explored in this book too- not only romantic ones, there was a ton of emphasis on friends and family as well, which I adored. Goodness, I want to gush about this book endlessly, but even telling you some of the things I want to gush about would be spoilery! Bottom Line: My heart has been destroyed and uplifted over and over, and I have fallen in absolute love with this series and these amazingly realistic characters. I am simultaneously excited and devastated for Crystal Crowned. I can't wait to read every last word of this series, but I also can't handle leaving these beloved characters and world behind.
