“Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights an upcoming release that we’re eagerly anticipating. Let the salivating commence.
My pick this week:
Let The Sky Fall
By: Shannon Messenger
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Release Date: March 5, 2013
Van 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.
Set amongst the desert airstreams of Coachella Valley in California, Let the Sky Fall is about two teenagers broken by their pasts, divided by their futures, and bound by love.
Why I’m Waiting: This book sounds so incredible! Although the early reviews are actually making me even more excited than the summary. One in particular compares it to both Melina Marchetta’s On the Jellicoe Road and Kristin Cashore’s Graceling. If that’s not intriguing I don’t know what is.
