LET THE SKY FALL by Shannon Messenger

It's release week for LET THE SKY FALL by Shannon Messenger! I really enjoyed this book, but before we get to all that, let's take a look at the gorgeous cover. I wants to stroke it. I can't wait to get my hands on a physical copy!


About LET THE SKY FALL: 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 beta-read this book for Shannon, oh I don't know. Two years ago? Maybe two years ago. I'm thrilled it's made it's way to print, because it's a great YA novel. It's got snark, and heart, and kissing. You know I like all three of those things.

Vane is a great character that both male and female readers will connect with, and Audra is the hard-nosed girl determined to keep her promises. She's got issues too, and well, you've got to read it. LET THE SKY FALL is really everything a YA novel should be.

Be sure to add it to your TBR pile! You won't regret it.

What new release are you dying to get your hands on?

So many books I've been waiting for have come out in the last 30 days and are coming through the month. Just finished Fragments and before that Everbound. Got The Indigo Spell and Frost Burned (Mercy Thompson) and I can't wait for Clockwork Princess in a couple of weeks.

It also has swords. Or at least one sword. That's what Shannon told me, and it better be true!

So looking forward to this! I wish I'd had a chance to read it before now. It's killing me I haven't been able to read it yet. But I'm hoping to take it with me on spring break.
