Waiting on Wednesday: Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger

Let the Sky Fall (Let the Sky Fall, #1)A broken past and a divided future can’t stop the electric connection of two teens in this “charged and romantic” 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 (GoodReads).

Reasons I am "Waiting on" Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger:

1. The cover is pretty.
2. I liked the movie Twister. This is about tornadoes, and so it makes me think about a movie I liked.
3. I am into the new Carrie Underwood song 'Blown Away'. It is perfect for this book.
4. Forbidden romance.
5. I loved Ariel, the air elemental in the Théâtre Illuminata series by Lisa Mantchev. I find it hard to scoff at paranormal things created by Shakespeare!

A cheers of our whiskey sours to Jill at Breaking the Spine for hosting Waiting on Wednesday, a weekly event that highlights books we cannot wait to read. Let the Sky Fall comes out in March 2013.
