Let The Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger Book Review

Let the Sky Fall (Let the Sky Fall, #1)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’ve been looking forward to reading Let The Sky Fall for a long time, especially with how amazing it sounded! It turned out to be just as great as I hoped it would and Shannon Messenger has definitely made my favorite author list!

Let The Sky Fall had a super unique premise, but it still totally worked. It’s told in the point of views of Audra and Vane, both sylphs. They’re able to control the wind and are almost a part of it. Vane is also is a lot more than just an ordinary sylph ;) 

Both characters were great, although I didn’t like Audra too much at first. She seemed so robotic and cold. The reasons for her being that way were revealed over time, and I grew to really like her. I feel like Vane was the opposite of her, and wore his heart on his sleeve. He was so sweet, but he still had all the qualities of a normal teenage guy. Audra and Vane really complemented one another.

The plot was so intense. Although it started out a bit slow, the main conflict came about pretty quickly and the buildup to the final scene was great. There was something that occurred at the end that I never expected to happen, at all. I was so shocked by it.

I loved how much the characters both grew throughout the book and I felt like the ending was perfect for the book. There’s no cliffhanger, but it leaves some things open for the second book. The writing style was beautiful and I’d give it 4 1/2 out of 5 flowers.
