"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."
WOAH! Where do I even begin? How about the awesome plot? Or the HOT guy? Or how about the forbidden love that changes everything?
Let me tell you that I was completely wrong about this book. At first glance, I thought it was another angel book. WRONG! Instead, I am lead into a whole new world that is engaging and dangerous. Full of deadly secrets and lost language, Ms. Messenger wrote a fantastic plot. I love it. It was non-stop action from start to finish, leaving me very little time to catch my breathe. Each chapter brought new light to what really happen. I loved that this world is so new to me. I read many different stories before and this one is off the charts. Different and standing out of the crown, the plot brings real attention to detail.
The love interest! AHHHH! What can I say other that I am a sucker for love. And this love pulls me in fast. It's has all my favorite elements. It's forbidden, dangerous, and quite amusing. I like that these characters has so much to live for and fight for. The harsh reality of their past is coming upon them fast. They make hasty decisions which fuels more action. I can't wait to read the second book to see where this little development will go.
Let The Sky Fall is a beautifully written story that I want to read again. Solid and moving plot, Let The Sky Fall is impossible to resist. Dark and romantic, Let The Sky Fall is stunning!
I give it 5 BITES!
