"Waiting On" Wednesday - Let the Sky Fall

"Waiting On"  Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm waiting on... 

Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger

* Book will be released March 5, 2013
* It has kind of a spoilery description so I highlighted some parts

Check out the description from Barnes & Noble:

"A broken past and a divided future can’t stop the electric connection of two teens in this “charged and romantic” (Becca Fitzpatrick), lush novel.

Seventeen-year-old Vane Weston has no idea how he survived the category five tornado that killed his parents. And he has no idea if the beautiful, dark-haired girl who’s swept through his dreams every night since the storm is real. But he hopes she is.

Seventeen-year-old Audra is a sylph, an air elemental. She walks on the wind, can translate its alluring songs, and can even coax it into a weapon with a simple string of commands. She’s also a guardian—Vane’s guardian—and has sworn an oath to protect Vane at all costs. Even if it means sacrificing her own life.

When a hasty mistake reveals their location to the enemy who murdered both of their families, Audra’s forced to help Vane remember who he is. He has a power to claim—the secret language of the West Wind, which only he can understand. But unlocking his heritage will also unlock the memory Audra needs him to forget. And their greatest danger is not the warriors coming to destroy them—but the forbidden romance that’s grown between them."

I love the cover of this book.  Having a character be an air elemental is interesting because it’s new/not anything I’ve seen before.  Can’t wait to learn all about these characters and I really hope the story is as unique as it sounds.


  1. If you want to read books with elements you should definitely check out Brigid Kemmerer's Elemental series. It's awesome and each book is narrated by a different element within a family of brothers :)

    But this sounds and looks incredible!
