Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where book bloggers devote a post to an upcoming book release they are particularly looking forward to.
THIS WEEK'S PICK:
LET THE SKY FALL BY SHANNON MESSENGER
Vane Weston should have died in the category five tornado that killed his parents. Instead, he woke up in a pile of rubble with no memories of his past--except one: a beautiful, dark-haired girl standing in the winds. She's swept through his dreams ever since, and he clings to the hope that she's real.
Audra is real, but she isn't human. She's a sylph, an air elemental who can walk on the wind, translate its alluring songs, even twist it into a weapon. She's also a guardian--Vane's guardian--and has sworn an oath to protect him at all costs.
When a hasty mistake reveals their location to the enemy who murdered both of their families, Audra has just days to help Vane unlock his memories. And as the storm winds gather, they start to realize the greatest danger might not be the warriors coming to destroy them, but the forbidden romance growing between them.
Set amongst the desert airstreams of Coachella Valley in California, LET THE SKY FALL is about two teenagers broken by their pasts, divided by their futures, and bound by love.
This book just sounds fantastic. There aren't all that many out there so I love any story that deals with elemental control. But that's not the only thing that makes this book so appealing. Just reading the synopsis I know that this is a story that will captivate me from start to finish and one that will even most likely break my heart in some way. All that to say, I can't wait to read this book. Oh, and the cover isn't so bad either (read: absolutely fantastic).
Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger will be published March 5th, 2013 by Simon Pulse.
