Let the Sky Fall



I’m lucky to be alive.

At least, that’s what everybody keeps telling me.

The reporter from the local newspaper even had the nerve to call it a miracle. I was “Vane Weston: The Miracle Child.” Like the police finding me unconscious in a pile of rubble was part of some grand universal plan.

“Family Survives Tornado”—now, that would’ve been a miracle. But trust me, there’s nothing “miraculous” about being orphaned at seven years old.

It’s not that I’m not grateful to be alive. I am. I get that I shouldn’t have survived. But that’s the worst part about being “The Miracle Child.”

The question.

The same inescapable question, plaguing me for the last ten years of my life.


How could I get sucked in by a category-five tornado—nature’s equivalent of a giant blender—get carried over four miles before the massive funnel spit me back out, and only have a few cuts and bruises to show for it? How was that possible, when my parents’ bodies were found almost unrecognizable?

The police don’t know.

Scientists don’t know.

So they all turn to me for the answer.

But I have no freaking idea.

I can’t remember it. That day. My past. Anything.

Well, I can’t remember anything useful.

I remember fear.

I remember wind.

And then . . . a giant, blank space. Like all my memories were knocked out of my head when I hit the ground.

Except one.

One isolated memory—and I’m not even sure if it is a memory, or if it’s some strange hallucination my traumatized brain cooked up.

A face, watching me through the chaos of the storm.

A girl. Dark hair. Darker eyes. A single tear streaks down her cheek. Then a chilly breeze whisks her away.

She’s haunted my dreams ever since.

Revue de presse

"Charged and romantic--a whirlwind of a love story." --Becca Fitzpatrick, New York Times bestselling author of the Hush, Hush Saga

"Funny, fast-paced, and slyly romantic, Shannon Messenger’s YA debut dazzles."

- Kiersten White, NYT Bestselling author of PARANORMALCY and SUPERNATURALLY

Les débuts de Let The Sky Fall étaient... plutôt... difficiles. Non pas que j'aimais pas. Non, c'est juste que le contexte m'étaient tellement inconnu. Le vocabulaire, le champ lexical, m'était étranger. Au point d'avoir trouvé 3 façons différentes de dire "rafale" en anglais. Et les explications du contexte ne viennent pas tout de suite, en plus. Donc j'étais un peu paumée, j'ai galéré, et j'ai avancé dans ma lecture à l'aveuglette. Puis j'ai compris! ET C'ÉTAIT UN DÉLICE!

Un délice par bien des points:

Un délicieux environnement

Le "décor" mais surtout l'environnement sont des éléments importants de l'intrigue: le genre d'environnement que l'on ressent par tous nos sens. Et C'ÉTAIT FABULEUX! Croyez-moi, leur description est tout simplement fabuleuse. Les effets de l'environnement sur les sens des protagonistes sont très envoutants, et j'ai beaucoup aimé me laisser porter par les mots de Shannon Messenger.
Là, j'avais très envie de dire "vous me prenez sûrement pour une folle" mais je suis sûre que c'est déjà le cas. Peu importe.

La narration

Let The Sky est narré à la première personne, et les chapitres alternent les points de vue des deux protagonistes: Audra et Vane. ET C'ÉTAIT EXCELLENT. Vane et Audra sont deux personnages très opposés. Et l'écriture de l'auteur varie énormément en fonction de ses personnages. Elle a su adapter son écriture à ses personnages, à leur personnalité, sans jamais défaillir, et j'admire ça, franchement.

Breathtaking, hilarious and fun! 5 mars 2013
Par flamingo1325 - Publié sur Amazon.com

Captivating, beautiful, and witty, Let the Sky Fall is the perfect mix of so many elements into one whirlwind book. There is so much humor and fun, even with the rougher aspects. From a sweet and totally awkward romance to an intense and even painful story, there is an honesty which completely enamored me from the start.

Vane is hilarious, ridiculous in his own way, and the kind of guy who doesn’t take things too seriously yet isn't totally useless either. He’s a bit lazy, but with the right thing to focus on, he’s intense and determined. One of my favorite things about him, though, despite his ever-present wit, is how different he is compared to many other guy characters in the genre. He’s relatable, he’s genuine and nice, he’s a bit clueless…he’s just so real, in that way of the guy who sits next to you in class, rather than the guy across the room who scares you as much as he intrigues you. I fell harder for him with every page. More than that, though, I loved watching him change and grow, watching him step up and face things that are really pretty scary and intimidating at times… and he doesn’t act totally fearless. He wears his emotions on his sleeve much of the time, and he isn't really ashamed of it either. Vane is just one of those characters who blows across the pages, as alluring as he is amusing, with a hint of a mess to him as well and I couldn’t get enough.

Then there’s Audra, with an airy, lyrical voice to her that is almost stoic at the start, yet morphs into something so different, and much more empathetic towards the end. She goes through tremendous changes of her own, as equally well done as Vane’s, and the interactions, and play offs between these two is easily my favorite part of this entire book. I love Audra for her loyalty to not only the Gales, but Vane specifically, and I love her for figuring out how to also come into her own person in the midst of everything, even if it isn’t always a breeze. Audra is very much a product of her situation, with some stormy parts of her past that she hasn’t exactly faced, yet it also isn't drowning her in the way often seen.

This is definitely one of those read in one sitting kind of books—the plot sucked me in at the start. There are so many elements and layers, as intricate as it is straightforward and fun. From the back story so easily blended into the bigger picture to the seamless worldbuilding, Messenger’s talent shines throughout. This is one of those books that sneaks up on you with everything actually going on, yet doesn’t overload readers at any given time. Creative in so many ways and completely easy to fall into, this book swept me off my feet. The writing is fabulous, with two very distinct voices and styles which not only lend vibrancy to Vane and Audra but makes for vivid action scenes and settings alike. Holding the perfect blend of humor and emotion, Let the Sky Fall is a breath of fresh air and is now on my favorites shelf.

Oh my goodness. This was an amazing book. I've been anticipating this windy day romance for-like-EVER, and boy did it live up to my expectations. It was beautiful, engaging, and romantic with a side of swoon. Everything I ask for in a book.

The story is told from the perspective of our dual narrators Vane and Audra. Audra is a sylph, an air elemental who also happens to be Vane's guardian. She's got a pretty broken past, and her character is pretty rough to begin with. And let me just say, I absolutely loved her. Her flaws, her problems, her sarcasm, her strengths. It was so awesome watching her breeze by as she changed and hit walls and began her path to redemption. What's especially cool, at least to me, is the other fact that she's Vanes guardian. FOR ONCE, it's a girl. Okay, so maybe it's more common then that, but seriously. Audra is a force of nature! Pun intended. Hands down, I loved her.

Vane, our second narrator, is also kind of AWESOME. He starts out on a very different level, and page than Audra, but he's still so amazing! He has to take in a lot of information, and his emotions went back and forth quite a bit. Yet, it worked. Both of the characters share quite the emotional roller coaster and it made them stronger and just endearing in a way. I could totally FEEL them. But back to Vane. He was also, a teensy by hot. Okay a LOT. I loved him. His thoughts cracked me up quite a bit. And with Audra they are the BOMB!!! Or should I say, a TORNADO? Seriously! The romance picks up and there's already been a sort of connection between them and it just grows into something, ahem, swoon worthy. I loved it all.

The story itself is one that isn't very action packed from the start. It's a quiet build that crescendos into an epic finale. So if you're looking for an action packed story, this isn't the one you need. However there is lots of internal conflict and as said, that build of conflict is enough to keep you on your toes. I will tell you that I wasn't officially grabbed until maybe 40% in. I really liked it but when that crescendo hit, I was never gonna be going back again. By the end I was so hooked into the story I couldn't stop. Not to mention It was late at night and I didn't even start to get tired, like I normally do. My whole brain was engaged. And the END. Wow. My heart, shall I say, felt attacked by a whirlwind? More revelations, swoonyness, action and just awesome. I love it. Shannon had a great style of writing, that is unique, while not being overly strange or hard to read. It's quite easy to slip into the shoes of Vaudra. [yes I just gave them a mash name].

So...have we learned anything from this review? I am GONE WITH THE WIND over this book. I don't even know if that pun works but whatever. This book picked me up, I start on a small breezey draft and then I flew into the tornado. It was awesome. Needless to say I am pining for book two. I can't wait 11 months FOR MORE VAUDRA. The ending, while not a cliffhanger was still wrenching in a way. *flails* Okay, I'll shut up now. Bottom Line: GO. READ. THIS. BOOK. Now.

Let the Sky Fall was AMAZING!!! That sentence should be enough for you to go out and buy this book. I devoured this book in no time. First off look at the cover, Beautiful! Once you read the book, it goes hand in hand with the story. I can sit here in front of my computer all day and fan-girl all you want about this Epic story. You know me and how I get when I read a book that is an orginal concept that has never been written before or at least that I haven't heard or read before. Its the same way I felt when I read Breathe by Sarah Crossan and Sophie Jordan's Firelight series. They are all orginal concepts that are new and AMAZING and well-written. This is why I read, so that when a new concept is written I am able to discover its magic.

Let the Sky Fall immediately captures you from the 1st chapter. You are taken into a story that has such an original concept and that concept is Windwalkers. Yes you read the right, its pretty much self-explanatory too. The mythology of the Windwalker is so alluring and poetic but has its dark-side too. I think I now would answer if someone were to ask me, 'what would I choose if I could have superpowers'? I would respond by saying I would be a Windwalker. Who doesn't want to be able to walk on air, listen to its beautiful music and even use the air to your benefit for protection and more, much more. After reading Let the Sky Fall, you'll catch yourself listening to the wind when your outside to see if you can hear anything coming from it. Shannon's writing was so believable and honest, you can actually picture or imagine what the Windwalkers hear. Did I mention already, that this book is EPIC!!! Didn't want to leave that piece of information out.

In Let the Sky Fall you are introduced to Vane and eventually to Audra. Vane for as long as he can remember has been dreaming of a girl that ends up being Audra in real life. He has had this recurring dream since the day he lost his parents during a category 5 tornado that he survived when he was really young. When Vane discovers Audra is real, events take place that now place them in serious danger. Audra basically has to give him a crash course on who Vane really is and what Windwalkers are, she has to 'WAKE' him up. Needless to say, Vane is not a happy camper even if it is Audra telling him. Now Audra and Vane must work together to figure out how to survive the doom that is headed their way. No one will help Audra, so she is left on her own to figure it out and train Vane at the same time. Vane must learn to call the West Wind which is something that only he can do. It has to come naturally to him in order to survive and be able to protect himself and Audra. Audra is starting to loose hope on Vane figuring out how to call the West Wind, so she is ready to make the ultimate sacrifice to protect Vane at all cost. Her life! If that is not enough to take in, it seems that Vane and Audra might be falling for one another and guess what? It' forbidden.

Let the Sky Fall will have you gripping the pages so hard from its charged-filled pages. You literally will get the wind knock out of you and you might even feel like you have been sucked in to your own personal category 5 tornado. Let the Sky Fall has it all and more. Its will grip you with its original story, believable characters, poetic mythology and passion that even Romeo and Juliette might be jealous about. I truly hope everyone reading this review will listen to me and buy this novel.

Audra is a windwalker, a sylph, who can control the winds. As one of the most powerful sylphs, she is assigned to protect a boy named Vane-who is basically the key to saving the world (hey, that's a new one!) Both of their parents died in a tornado, with Audra's dad sacrificing himself for Vane. Now ten years have passed and the people who killed their parents are coming after Vane and Audra because they have located them due to Audra's carelessness.

I should mention I read to page 200, upon which was a line: "Epic Vane Fail." Seriously, why? That was it for me. I had enough of the juvenile male hero who apparently only thinks about Audra/Audra/Audra, sometimes in really creepy ways. Creepy even for a teenage boy.

So much insta-love. The cheesy, weird, automatic romance the two main characters had together was seriously cringe worthy. Why do authors think it is also to smash two characters together and have them instantly in love? This is not how the real world works, folks.

The only thing this has going for it is the originality. The concept of controlling wind and having specific guardians that can control specific winds was great, everything else-not so great.

I suggest looking at a few more reviews before you really commit yourself to this one. Especially if you plan on going out and buying it.

Review for Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger 17 février 2014
Par Alyssa - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
***Review posted on The Eater of Books! blog***

Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger
Book One of the Sky Fall series
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Publication Date: March 5, 2013
Rating: 4 stars
Source: Copy won from a giveaway

Summary (from Goodreads):

Vane 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 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 their families, Audra has just days to help Vane unlock his memories. And as the storm winds gather, Audra and Vane start to realize that the greatest danger might not be the warriors coming to destroy them, but the forbidden romance growing between them.

What I Liked:

I was actually really surprised by how much I enjoyed this book! I'm pleased that I enjoyed it as much as I did, but I'm surprised. I'd read a fair amount of positive reviews for this book, when it initially came out last year, but then I read a few reviews that pretty much picked this book apart. Those few negative reviews from bloggers I actively followed were enough for me to put off reading this book for about a year.

But then I had to go and request this book from Edelweiss, and of course I was approved, so I had to be sure to read the first book (this one) before reading the sequel. Good time to binge-read, right? If only I had the third book, too. Then I could read the entire series and be happy.

Vane survived a category-five tornado, and he remembers one thing: Audra. For years, he sees Audra in his dreams, the one thing from the fatal storm that seems to be consistent in his non-memories. But the Audra comes back. And she reveals everything to him - including the key facts that he is a Westerly, a future king of the Windwalkers, and the future of the Windwalkers.

This book is split into Audra and Vane's perspective. We get Vane's perspective first, so I immediately bonded with him first. Usually, the first character introduced is the one I like more. I wasn't always a fan of Audra (especially with what she did - she seemed to be the reason for all of the "bad"), but I didn't mind Audra.

In Audra's mind, Vane seems to be a bit obnoxious and cocky and irritating. In Vane's mind, Audra is perfect and broken. In MY opinion, Vane is a bit cocky and sometimes obnoxious, but I think he is also scared yet determined. He is confident, but he also recognizes the fact that he has no idea what he is doing. Audra is NOT perfect. She is definitely broken up over what happened years ago, and she shoulders the blame, the burden, and the responsibility of basically EVERYTHING.

All of that said, I definitely preferred Vane's perspective to Audra's perspective. I found Vane more interesting than Audra, and more authentic. Not that Audra wasn't authentic, but I didn't like her voice as much as I liked Vane's. But I DID like the dual-perspective dynamic - Messenger definitely did a great job in making the voices unique and interesting, and it worked in this book.

The romance was pretty sweet, nice even. I thought it was a bit insta-lovey, but I liked seeing Vane and Audra together. The whole book seemed like torture for the two of them, but the end of this book proved to be pretty great for the two of them. We'll see though, as the series goes on. There will be some serious consequences for the two of them.

The majority of this novel is focused on Vane and Audra training and preparing for the Stormers (I think they are called Stormers?) and Raiden to come. This didn't bother me too much, but it was a little bit slow. A lot of discoveries and plot twists happened during this time, but actually events, meh.

Otherwise, the plot of this book was pretty good - straightforward, with several plot twisters (hehe, wind pun!). I enjoyed the book from start to finish, and wanted to keep reading. I read this book from cover to cover in one sitting, which was nice. I can't wait to read the second book! Which is hilarious, because I'm reading it tomorrow.

What I Did Not Like:

As I said before, I think the romance was a bit insta-lovey. Like, immediately upon seeing Audra, Vane sees to become obsessed with her. I know he's been seeing her in his dreams for years and all, but he just becomes ENAMORED. Audra falls in love more gradually, which was nice (and interesting) to see.

I'm also kind of mad at Audra, for basically causing everything (she didn't REALLY, but that's how it seems). Like, a bird is not that important. But then I'm also mad at another people, like Audra's mother, for being a jerk, and Raiden, for being power hungry in general. I guess I don't like these events and characters, but I see their purpose. Sort of.

And I mentioned that the plot was a bit simplistic - meaning, the majority of the book was spent following Vane's training with Audra. Cool, but at the same time, can other things happen? Also, I'm a bit confused about how everything went down in the end, but I'm just going to roll with it and read the second book. Sounds like a plan, right? Right.

Also, I think the majority of the Windwalkers are full of BS. They want to pin the future of their race on one boy, on one person. They have all these rules and terms and conditions laid out for him, his entire life planned for him. It's like he's going to magically adjust to being a Windwalker (after seventeen years of NOT using his wind-related abilities), and he's definitely going to leave his old life behind and agree to everything they want to do (including that bit with Solana... um, NO). Full of BS, I say.

Would I Recommend It:

I would definitely recommend this book to fans of a good forbidden romance! And the paranormal aspect is pretty cool. And Messenger does a really great job of creating a contemporary world with a paranormal aspect (or a paranormal world with a contemporary feel? Whatever).


3.5 stars -> rounded up to 4 stars. This book was pretty great! I can't wait to read the sequel. Check out my review, coming tomorrow (February 17th) on my blog!
