Waiting on Wednesday: Let the Sky Fall

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to read!

My pick is Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger!

Goodreads summary:

A broken past and a divided future can’t stop the electric connection of two teens in this “charged and romantic” (Becca Fitzpatrick), lush novel.

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 thoughts:

Please excuse me while I go drool over that cover.

Seriously.  I know I always freak out over covers that are gorgeous, but this cover is just so pretty!  And I am the only one who gets Adele's song "Skyfall" running through my head every single time I see this book?

Anyway, this book sounds so unique and original.  Plus, it's about sylphs!  How cool is that?  This sounds like an amazing story and I can't wait for March 5 to come so I can go get a copy and devour it.

Please leave links to your WoWs in the comments so I can go check them out!  Thanks for stopping by!
