Here's my choice for this week!

 Vortex Visions
(Air Awakens: Vortex Chronicles, Book 1)
Kindle Edition,  11835 KB
Silver Wing Press
   February 4, 2019
Fantasy, Romance, Young Adult Fiction

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.

If you enjoy epic fantasy stories with sorcery, slow-burn romance, and expansive worlds to adventure in, then you’ll love the Vortex Chronicles!

 Why I can't wait for this one!

When I first came across this cover, I was hooked!
I just HAD to find out more! The only problem
is that this is is an ebook.....
Well, I'm crossing my fingers that it
will soon be out in print, as well!! 
Meanwhile, I'll go ahead and pre-order the 
Kindle Edition, because this sounds 
MUCH TOO GOOD to pass up!!!

For more information on this author, you can check out her
Goodreads profile HERE!

What do you think of my
choice this week? 
Please leave a comment and
let me know!


  1. Ooh this looks good! And Elise Kova- I think I saw really good things about another book of hers, she was an author I wanted to try. I need to bop over to Goodreads I think. Check out her stuff...

    1. Hi, Greg!

      It SURE does!! And I've heard of Elise Kova, too. In fact, I think I featured the cover of one of her books in one of my "Shelf Candy Saturday" posts, some time back. The book I'm featuring here also has a TERRIFIC cover!!

      You should DEFINITELY check out her stuff on Goodreads. I want to add more of her books to my shelves. But man, I sure wish this one -- "Vortex Visions" -- were in print! Lol.

      Sorry for the late reply..... :(

      Thanks for the great comment!! < :)

  2. Oooh! I love the cover of this book! Great pick!

    Here’s my WoW!

    Ronyell @ Rabbit Ears Book Blog

    1. Hi, Ronyell!

      Yes, this book DEFINITELY has a GORGEOUS cover!! Glad you love my pick!!

      Sorry for the late reply.....:(

      Thanks for the nice comment!! <3 :)

  3. I agree that the cover is super. I do not know much about the publishing industry. I guess it is fairly common for some titles to just come out in ebooks..I guess thaf they may be published as traditional books if the ebook sells well?

    As this will be the first book in the series at least you can start with it right away you can start with it.

    1. Yes, Brian, there are quite a lot of e-book only publishers these days. It’s convenient and cheaper and you can be flexible about length.

    2. Hi, Brian!

      Yes, as Sue has commented, this cover would be GREAT for one of my "Shelf Candy Saturday" posts! It's just STUNNING.

      To be honest, I don't know that much about the publishing industry myself. However, I have seen books come out first in print, and then later, as ebooks. I've also seen the opposite happen. And then there are some books who are ONLY published as ebooks. Other books are ONLY published as print books. I really don't know how the whole thing works.... Lol.

      Oh, DEFINITELY I will be able to start this series from the very beginning! Glad I caught it in time!

      Sorry for the late reply..... :(

      Thanks for the great comment!! <3 :)

  4. I've been meaning to read something from this author for ages! Maybe this will be the one! Sounds cool.

    My Waiting on Wednesday

    1. Hi, Louise!

      Yes, this might be the very first book of hers you read! I've been meaning to start reading her books, too, and, like you, I might start with this one!

      Sorry for the late reply.....:(

      Thanks for commenting!! <3 :)

  5. So do you order all of your books in hardback or do you collect both? I do a lot of Kindle reading and your comment has me curious. Guess I never asked :) I immediately recognize this author's name and know many people love her other series. This is a great pick and I'm glad you shared it so I can put it on my radar.

    1. Hi, Barb!

      Well, the only way I can afford hardbacks is by finding the cheapest copy in the best possible condition, either on Amazon or Ebay. Lol. I can also find bargain-priced hardbacks at Barnes & Noble, but those frequently have a remainder mark, and I HATE seeing a remainder mark on a book! Occasionally, however, I will buy a hardback that has such a mark, if I REALLY, REALLY want the book. Lol.

      I have sometimes pre-ordered books on Amazon, and they're usually hardbacks. I have already done that with "Vortex Visions", but I'm hoping that it will later come out in print, whether hardback or paperback. If I LOVE this book, and it does come out in print later on, then I'll buy it in that format, too. Crazy, right? Lol.

      Actually, most of the books I buy are trade paperbacks. I prefer them to the mass market paperbacks. Of course, I do try to get these larger paperbacks on either Amazon or Ebay,for a good price!

      Ironically, I do have over 100 Kindle books on my Android phone's Kindle app! Lol. Sometimes, I get SO desperate to buy a book, I'll go ahead and get the Kindle edition. So I have a LOT of unread books on my phone.... :)

      You're very welcome for the sharing! Glad you like this book, too!!

      Sorry for the late reply....:(

      Thanks for the great comment!! HUGS TO YOU AND THOSE CUTE PUPS, AND "WOOF, WOOF" TO THEM!!! <3 :)

  6. oh this sounds like a very badass heroine! :) Hope you enjoy it Maria!

    1. Hi, Daniela!

      ABSOLUTELY!! I KNOW I'll enjoy it!!

      Sorry for the late reply..... :( Schoolwork has me pretty busy!

      Thanks for commenting!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! HUGS!! <3 <3 <3 :) :) :)

  7. She is on my must read list. I want to read her books so badly and haven't yet. Her covers are always amazing. I love them. This is a great pick and now a book I am adding to my TBR.

    1. Hi, Michelle!

      Yeah, I have a couple of her books on my Goodreads shelves. This might be the first one I read, though. I just LOVE that cover, and the female MC sounds like such a kick-butt character! YAAAASSS!!!

      Sorry for the late reply..... :( HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

      Thanks for commenting!! <3 :)

  8. Looks like a good pick! I look forward to your review. I'm a new blog follower via GFC :) Here's my Can't Wait Wednesday if you'd like to stop by!

    1. Hi, Sue!
