"I'm just here for the bucks and the billis" *cue bass* #AirAwakens

So you guys saw my post last week introducing this, but today I am back to tell you my affinity! Don't forget to check out the bottom of my post for some more valuable information about the book and a couple upcoming events all to do with AIR AWAKENS! You guys don't want to miss these!

A library apprentice, a sorcerer prince, and an unbreakable magic bond...

The Solaris Empire is one conquest away from uniting the continent, and the rare elemental magic sleeping in seventeen-year-old library apprentice Vhalla Yarl could shift the tides of war.

Vhalla has always been taught to fear the Tower of Sorcerers, a mysterious magic society, and has been happy in her quiet world of books. But after she unknowingly saves the life of one of the most powerful sorcerers of them all—the Crown Prince Aldrik—she finds herself enticed into his world. Now she must decide her future: Embrace her sorcery and leave the life she’s known, or eradicate her magic and remain as she’s always been. And with powerful forces lurking in the shadows, Vhalla’s indecision could cost her more than she ever imagined.

After careful consideration (and taking the quiz 5 times to make sure), I am a...
Stubborn and rigid once you set your mind to something you are not easily moved. Your magic powers are not as flashy as others but it leads people to underestimate you and that is their downfall. Swords like words fall right off you and your stone skin. You've likely been trained well in some form of weaponry making you a practical soldier to keep around. 

Adding to your utility, your affinity gives you magical sight and the ability to read other people's bodies like books. You are just as likely to save someone from death by telling their liver to produce more blood as you are to poison them with a drink made more potent with your magic.

You are just like: Elecia Ci'Dan 
This is who I envision for Elecia!

If I had GROUNDBREAKER abilities for a day...

I see being a Groundbreaker as being Drake: Hard exterior, but soft, squishy interior. Therefore I have made a playlist for my day as a Groundbreaker. It starts out very "I'm a BAMF" and ends with "But I'm also very sensitive." However, that being said, it is very NSFW or good for kiddos, so please please please only listen if you are not one of those things. I don't need angry parents coming up to Canada to yell at me. ALTHOUGH, if I had Groundbreaker abilities, I would be in a better position to deal with them.


With groundbreaker abilities, I would definitely start fighting people for money. I have stone skin and could kick ass. I would make bank that day to keep me occupied for the rest of my life. This is legitimately the first thing I thought of when we were deciding to do these posts.
I think I would be really good at kicking ass and taking names. And much like Elecia, who we meet for the first time in FIRE FALLING, if I deem people to have far inferior abilities to mine, it makes it even more fun to demolish them. And I feel like the majority of those first songs on my Drake playlist really embody this. We Groundbreakers know we're great and don't believe those people who say we're not (because they are wrong).

But underneath my rock hard shell is a squishy interior (just like Drake), so I would also use the other aspect of my groundbreaker abilities to do some good. If you're not quite sure what I mean (because you're still jamming to Drake), I mean the ability to heal.
Because groundbreakers have such a high affinity of self, we are able to understand the body much better than other magic users. Therefore, I could heal people. Or turn their body against them. Depends on my mood. Just like Drake. 

But money first bro.

What would you do with groundbreaker abilities? 
More importantly, have I made you a Drake fan?

Intrigued by the world of Air Awakens? The author is hosting an Air Awakens Read Along on Facebook! It starts on October 25th and runs until November 15th, the same day as the cover reveal for EARTH'S END! There will be behind the scenes looks, deleted scenes, and even giveaways galore.
Can't wait until then? Then you can join Elise, me, and others on Twitter this Friday (tomorrow night) at 8pm ET for another round of Questions with Kova (#QWK). One lucky participant will win either a signed copy of AIR AWAKENS or a print of the cover art of AIR AWAKENS! Your choice! (I'd go with the print because they are freaking GORGEOUS)


  1. You made me laugh! Thank you so much for that.
    I love your post -- the gifs. Everything. It makes me want to check out Drake's songs yo.

    Groundbreakers rule! *fist bump*

  2. LMAO dude... I can't stop laughing! Hahaha. This is so you. I'm not really a fan of Drake (please to god don't start throwing rocks at me or punch me with your fist of stone), but I like how you included music in this post!

  3. LOL THIS IS HILARIOUS. Dude, you're the best. I don't know if I'm a Drake fan, but I have now followed you on Spotify so I can stalk you there as well. :D

  4. I keep looking at the cover and I am always amazed by how beautiful it is. I just can't stop looking at it! I read this not too long ago and liked it enough. I actually love thinking about being one of the Air Walkers I think. As for being a Groundbreaker... Do you think making flowers bloom is a part of their powers? XD
