Summary

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.

A magical story!

The author has a wonderful imagination and an artist at telling a Sci-fi story. The author writes and wonderful story that you can get lost in. I can’t wait for the next book in the series. I definitely recommend this book to everyone that loves a great Sci-fi story.

Sarah Sampino narration brings the characters to life for me. She is definitely awesome at the voices of the characters in each story she narrator’s. Her persona of each individual character is very entertaining with heartfelt emotions.

The narrator was perfect, the voices all recognizable and emotionally correct. It was a pleasure to listen too.

Loved This!!!

Hearing Vi brought to life like this was breathtaking! I was utterly captivated by the beautiful narration. I love this series so much. Vi totally has my heart as does Taavan! This was loaded with surprises that left me stunned and I admit freely that I'm begging for more! Elise Kova is so brilliant and one of my faves!!

Awesome novel, Definitely worth a listen

I loved the novel. I read the previous Air Awakens series but so I enjoyed reading about characters from the previous story as well as new ones. I don’t think it’s necessary to read the first series but you defiantly get more out of the story if you do.
I love audio books, and so was excited to listen to this book on audio. I thought the narrator did a good job but having a male narrator for the portions that dealt with a male counter part to Vi would have enhanced the listening experience.
Over all I would defiantly recommend this novel to anyone who likes fantasy novels. It’s addicting and leaves you wanting more.

Book-hangover worthy author

This was my first audiobook. I was leery to try them thinking I would space out and not pay attention but the story catches your attention and holds it! I absolutely loved the Air Awakens series and had a book hangover for weeks after finishing it. It’s so great to be back in the Solaris world again!

Excellent book

This is the first book by this author that I have had the privilege to read/listen to and let me say I will be reading the Air Awakens series eventually. With plenty of magic and mystery to keep you on the edge of your seat the entire book you can tell that the characters and world building meld perfectly together. I have grown to love this narrator as I totally enjoy how she handles the different characters in the books.

A worthy successor to Air Awakens!

I loved Vhalla, and I love her daughter Vi just as much! I read the book before listening to the audio, and I have to say I didn't think I would like it as much listening to the story. But I did - the narrator really captures the different characters' personalities and emotions without overacting. I really enjoyed listening to this, and was captivated just as I had been while reading!
