Waiting on Wednesday (10): Let the Sky Fall

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. Click on the image above to go there!

I really hadn't heard too much about this one, but the cover was revealed this morning (so sorry if 85 other people jump on the bandwagon). Apparently this is about tornadoes and sylphs. I've always been fascinated by tornado stories; Twister was a popular film when I was growing up. The story sounds really original. The focus might be a bit too much on the romance, but I shan't know until I read it, right? Either way, a unique plot line plus an interesting cover = I will be reading this.

Let the Sky Fall

Author: Shannon Messenger
Expected Publication Date: March 2013
Publisher: Simon Pulse

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Seventeen-year-old Vane Weston is the only survivor of the category five tornado that killed his parents. Every night since the storm, a beautiful, dark-haired girl has swept through his dreams. She's the only clue to his past, and he clings to the hope that she's real.

Audra is real, but she's also a sylph. An air elemental. She walks on the wind, can translate its alluring songs, and can 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. 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 must 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 a memory Audra wishes could be erased. And as the storm bears down on them she starts to realize the greatest danger might not be the warriors coming to destroy them, but the forbidden romance that's grown between them.

Set amongst the desert airstreams of Coachella Valley in California, and alive with wonderful wind-swept prose, LET THE SKY FALL is about two teenagers broken by their pasts, divided by their futures, and bound by love.

I really love the sound of this book! I haven't read a book about a sylph before, so it's awesome to see that this book has one! I'm sure that this book will be super unique and interesting. Too bad that the release date is so far away! Fabulous pick. =)
