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. (Goodreads)
Why I'm Waiting
Forbidden romance? Sylphs? The secret language of the West Wind? Sign me up! Let the Sky Fall offers a unique premise, and the cover is stunning. Look at those colors! Plus, the guy's name is Vane. Like a weathervane. I love puns. I just have a good feeling about this book, and I'm so excited!

  2. DEFINITELY loving that cover, and the premise is very different. This line instantly made me think of Pocahontas for some reason lol:

    "She walks on the wind, can translate its alluring songs, and can even coax it into a weapon with a simple string of commands."
