Waiting on Wednesday (5)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. WOW shines a light on upcoming releases that I just can't wait to get my hands on!

This weeks Waiting on Wednesday is...

Let the Sky Fall
by Shannon Messenger

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. 

Doesn't this book sound awesome?! There's never been a book about Sylph's before - at least none that I've heard of - so it's got points for originality. It's told from a dual perspective of Audra and Vane, which is more awesome! I mean, how many books are there out there with guy perspectives? 

It sounds really intense and super addicting and I have very, very, very high hopes for this book when it comes out in... March of 2013! Why does it have to be so far away?! 

... Let the countdown begin!


  1. I'm still not quite sure if this is my kind of book yet, but I'm looking forward to reading reviews. :) Great pick! Now following you!

    1. I kind of have a soft spot for all things elemental! And considering Sylph's are air spirits, well... I just couldn't help myself. :)

      Thanks, Randi! :D

  2. This sounds great really, I've loved Elementals ever since Nickolodeon's Avatar (I like Cameron's Avatar too) but I'm talking The Last Air Bender :)

    1. I love The Last Airbender! Although I have yet to watch the full thing yet... I always get about half way through a forget that I'm watching it :P

  3. Great pick! I'm waiting for this one as well. It sounds really good & I love the cover. I can't wait for 2013. :)

    1. Thanks! I'm hoping to find a countdown button or something for it sometime soon! :)

  4. Oh I saw this one somewhere and I remember that I loved the sound of it. I can't wait for it to come out. Great pick!
