Vortex Visions by Elise Kova

A desperate princess, a magical traveler, and a watch that binds them together with the fate of a dying world. 
Vi Solaris is the heir to an Empire she’s barely seen. Her parents sacrificed a life with her to quell a rebellion and secure peace with a political alliance. Now, three years past when her wardship should’ve ended, Vi will do anything to be reunited with her family. 
The Empire is faltering beneath the burden of political infighting and a deadly plague. Yet, Vi can’t help but wonder if her inability to control her magic is the true reason her parents haven’t brought her home. Suspicion becomes reality when she unleashes powers she’s not supposed to have.

Powers that might well cost her the throne.
As Vi fights to get her magic under control, a mysterious stranger appears from across the world. He holds the keys to unlocking her full potential, but the knowledge has an unspeakable price — some truths, once seen, cannot be ignored.
All eyes are on her and Vi must make the hardest choice of her life: Play by the rules and claim her throne. Or, break them and save the world.


Vortex Visions by Elise Kova takes place 20 years in the future. So those that follow the series, we have a grown up Vi. Vi is equally both her mother and her father. I swear this is the perfect child of Vhalla and Aldrick. Plus we have an uncle Jax. Vi is seventeen and she just wants to go home to her family. She had to spend her whole life in the North away from her twin brother and her parents. Even though she has seen her parents, she has never met her twin. They only communicate through letters.

I loved getting to know these characters along with some familiar ones. Kova is so great with her character development. I found myself becoming more interested in Andru and Taavin as the new characters in this series. From the very beginning Andru is not what he seems and as we learn more about him, the more I want to know. Taavin is the boy that Vi is able to summon with her newly awoken power.

Kova did a fantastic job writing this book. I feel like she brought us the world of Air Awakens that we have been missing but was also able to bring a whole new story to the readers that keep them completely interested in the story.

I found myself really enjoying the audiobook. I thought the narrator did a fantastic job and it was quite enjoyable. I really love it when an audiobook makes the story so real. I think Vi was really brought to life in the audio version and that made me love it more. I am definitely interested in listening to the next one.
