Exclusive histories, explanations, and more on each affinity as part of the Affinity Tour here on my blog. Read what’s been published to date:
Did you know there’s an Air Awakens Fan Club on Goodreads? What continually shocks me about this fact is that I wasn’t even the one to set it up! Some amazing readers came together and asked if it was something they could do. Of course I said, YES! And have been very enthusiastic about being involved since.
Well, those same awesome readers have put together an idea dedicated to the affinities in Air Awakens. I’m definitely going to be participating in this and I hope everyone else does too.
I’m not big on “reinventing the wheel” so I’m going to take what Jamie wrote on Goodreads and post it here so everyone knows what’s going on:
We mods here at the Air Awakens Fan Club thought we’d put together a little something for everyone to post on their blogs/social media/whatever to spread the word a bit about Air Awakens. Since there are different affinities in the Air Awakens world, we thought that the best way to do this would be for YOU to choose an affinity and create a post around it.
The post doesn’t have to be very long and it is completely voluntary but it’d be super awesome if you decided to post it. If you do, put your link here and we will do my best to promote everyone as much as possible. Since we don’t want to overwhelm people, we will have a bit of a mini schedule based on whichever affinity you choose. Try to tag either @booksandladders, @dani_reviews, @irisjeXx, or@Splintered_Luv so we can retweet and share the links!
Each post should include your choice of affinity, why you chose it, and what you would do for a day if you had your magical ability. If you wanted to include a link back to the book on Goodreads, that would be really cool of you!
Another thing to add, if you wanted, is a mention for the Read Along that Elise is hosting from October 25 to November 15. There will be deleted scenes, giveaways, and a chance to ask her all those BURNING questions about the Air Awakens world! (https://www.facebook.com/events/10372…)
Feel free to be creative! If you wanted to find out your affinity for sure, you can also take the quiz Elise created to determine your affinity http://www.playbuzz.com/elisekova10/w…. Just so you know, all the information in this post is taken directly from Elise’s quiz!
If you have any questions, feel free to ask. And make sure you have fun with this!
Below you will find information about each of the four affinities for you to include in your post along with a graphic! Feel free to add this banner to the top of your post:
Windwalker (Please post between October 16-17)
You are most at home in open spaces and have no fear of heights. The wind is your greatest ally and with it you can levitate objects and listen to whispers. You do not enjoy being pent up and value freedom highly.
You have a deep connection with the world and no one can hold you back. Many covet your power to Project your mind beyond your body and manipulate greater forces of magic.
You are just like: Vhalla Yarl
Waterrunner (Please post between October 18-19)
You are able to control water. This is more than just channeling the tides or lifting liquid from a glass. You are able to harden the water droplets in the air forming ice weapons to use in combat. Naturally, the chill doesn’t bother you. You’re a strong swimmer, but even if you weren’t you would have no fear of drowning, the water can’t hurt you.
You aren’t easily deceived, as some of the most gifted Waterrunners can manipulate water in the air to refract illusions. You also are at peace with the past, hearing its whispers in ripples and waves.

Firebearer (Please post between October 20-21)
Your emotions run hot and people know you have fire in your veins. You can be a warm heat to those who get close to you. But, when crossed, that warmth can easily turn into an inferno. In a scrap you prefer to fight with your fists, alight with fire, over weapons.
You think deeply about the future because you can hone your ability to see along the red lines of fate that connects everyone in the world. Perhaps you keep this gift of future-seeing to yourself. Or, perhaps you sell it in a Curiosity Shop.
You are just like: Crown Prince Aldrik and Larel Neiress
Groundbreaker (Please post between October 22-23)
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.
