Fifteen.

I've read fifteen books written by Julie Johnson, and every single one of them manages to make my heart clench. Fifteen times I've lost myself in stories laced with a turbulence of emotions, fifteen times I've wept and felt my chest split in two, fifteen times I've experienced desire, pain, tenderness, love, and the truth is, with Julie Johnson, they're not enough. I can do it fifteen times more, and my loyalty, my love, my trust in her will not falter. She's earned them.

Recommended for migraines, headaches and all ailments of the mind and the soul. May cause stomach cramps due to excessive, belly-shaking laughter and a wave of fuzziness as side effects.

Vortex Visions (Air Awakens: Vortex Chronicles, #1)
02, Feb

Rating: 4/5 stars

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Fae

O how I’ve missed thee, Elise Kova!

There was an odd mix of trepidation, hope, hesitation and eagerness that enveloped me ever since I learned of Vortex Visions. For me, Air Awakens is a truly special series; the sorrows, the tragedies, the raw pain and the whirlwind of love and devastation that swept and defined the lives of Vhalla Yarl and Aldrik Solaris have left a permanent mark, and returning to the world they shaped could either lead to deep contentment or utter disappointment. I should have known better, though. I should have known not to question her.
