Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on...hence the title. This week's pick is Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger.  Here's the synopsis:

"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."

So, you must know by now that one way to sell a book to me is to use the words FORBIDDEN ROMANCE and I'm sold.  I mean seriously, just take a look at that last paragraph above and tell me you don't want to read this?! But seriously, I like the story idea too including the idea of elementals which isn't exactly original but is still cool.  I've known about this book for a while but this is the first time I've seen the cover.  I love it.  I believe some people in the US have read an ARC and the feedback is positive so far.  I have no idea if it will come to the UK but that won't stop me.  I'm hitting pre-order as soon as I can.  Let the Sky Fall is published in March, 2013.  


  1. Oh! I like the sound of this one. Thx!

  2. I'm not super excited about the cover (I think I tend to prefer blues and purples) but now that I've read the synopsis I'm really excited to learn more about sylphs-it sounds vaguely familiar but I'm not sure why.


  3. I love the sound of this and the cover is beautiful.

  4. I like the cover. Twisters with a supernatural, ahem, twist. Sounds cool.

  5. Thank you so much for featuring LTSF. You = awesome!

  6. Awesome pick! I really like the cover and the synopsis!
