Review - Let the Sky Fall (Shannon Messenger)

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.

My Review

This picture pretty much sums up my reading experience. I don’t feel authorized to give this book an official rating since after about 120 pages, it got put into my DNF pile. For some reason this book just wasn’t for me. The premise sounded interesting at first and the cover was to die for, but I found the idea of Sylphs and the way the author presented the ideas rather tedious, and before long I found myself quite bored. There is nothing particularly wrong with the book, and I’m sure there are many people who have enjoyed it, it just wasn't for me. I just found the characters hard to relate to, and nothing about them really sparked a connection in me.

So all up, this was a so-so book, it definitely wasn’t for me, but that’s not to say it isn’t for you :)


  1. I like the cover too, but have been iffy about reading this one. Thanks for your honesty :)
