Audra is real, but she isn't human. She's a sylph, an air elemental who ...more
This is the end...
Hold your breath and count to ten...
Feel the earth move and then...
*shakes head and wonders if it’s an incurable condition*
Let the Skyfall...
When it crumbles...
We will stand tall...
Face it all, together....
Ok, catchy title aside, Let the Sky Fall (the book, not the lyrics) is what I’d call a clash of the highly original and the entirely derivative. On one hand, Shanno ...more
Well. I'm quite baffled.
In the best way possible.
After a recent . . . incident, I guess you could say—coughInkbyAmandaSuncough—I was a little more careful when it came to having high hopes for books. I had high hopes for this when I first saw it but soon pushed those hopes away because I didn't want to get burned in the end. So I went into this hoping for the best and expecting the worst, and I ended up beaming from start to ...more
You know what I really loved about Let the Sky Fall? It felt so fresh. Air Elementals?! So creative. Shannon Messenger built up the world of these Sylphs and I was caught up in it. Is it High Fantasy? Definitely not, more like Urban – and I loved it! Action packed and intense – full of suspense from the very first chapter – I loved every page. And th ...more
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 bo ...more
It's flipping gorgeous.
I've been excited to read this since it was released. I was waiting for it to be released as an ebook but I soon got fed up of waiting. And you know what? I'm SO glad I purchased a hardback copy. That cover will fit in nicely with my collection and looking at it on my iPad would not have done it justice.
The whirlwind adventure that lies inside the covers did not disappoint either. It got stuck in and starte ...more
Let the Sky Fall is told in dual perspectives - which I was totally not expecting and I absolutely loved it. I loved hearing from both Audra and Vane, as they were both s ...more
I loved this book! LOVE LOVE LOVED IT!
This is another book that I am kicking myself for not starting sooner. This book sucked me in right away. (The cover alone did that!) I'm want to keep this review short and sweet, cause I'm eager to just jump right into book 2. So here's a list of what I LOURVED:
1.) DUAL POV!
Omg, I am a sucker for dual POV. I especially love when it's from a both the hero and heroine's perspective. Vane and Audra made for a very entertaining read. I especially lov ...more
This book was very cute and sweet. The cover of this book so beautiful and amazing. The book had a nice pace and great story line and plot. Plus the book had humor in it, so that by itself made me fall in love with this book. There were moments where I couldn't stop laughing at the corny jokes in this book.
I loved how the two main characters last named symbolized what part of the wind their from. Vane Weston is known for being the miracle child who survived from a hurricane attack that killed b...more
Vane&Audra are now part of my favorite OTP list.
I love this sylph world, is very interesting and I want to Know more and I HAAAAAATTTEEE!!!!! Audra's Mom
Untitled (Let the Sky Fall #2) Expected publication: 2014 Nooooooooooooooooooooooo
I feel bad for not finishing it (mainly because I spend the money to buy it), but I'm not going to suf ...more
Let the Sky Fall introduces us to Vane, a teenage boy who survived a scary tornado that killed his parents. He can't remember anything about his past and childhood except one person--a beautifu ...more
I read this book in about 6 hours. And I gave it 5 stars. Does that tell you something? Generally I'm a pretty fast reader and I read this at the beginning of a 2-day bender where I read 5 books - YIKES! Anyway, I've been anticipating this book for agessssss. Not only is the cover gorgeous, the premise is fantastic and Shannon Messenger is a total sweetheart. You guys should totally follow her on Twitter if you don't already. To the point, the combination of ...more
The characters were so on point to what I love, particularly Vane. He was cocky and at times I wanted to slap the smirk off his face, but others he was sweet and faithful to the core. Which was so different to Audra who on the outsi ...more
Quick and Dirty: A girl has to prove that she isn’t a failure, while a guy is coming to grips with being a sylph and learning the girl of his dreams (literally) is real.
Opening Sentence: I’m lucky to be alive.
Vane Weston has forgotten his entire younger years. After being pulled out of the rubble from a tornado at 8 years old, Vane is completely ignorant to the fact that he’s a sylph, someone who can communicate with the winds and convince them to ...more
Vane is your average teen who lives a very normal life, boring as he calls it but still he lives in the hotte ...more
Reaction: COME ON BOOK NUMBER 2!--This book is bound to sweep you off your feet!!!
I just can't hold it in so first I have to say I LOVE YOU VANE!!!! Vane is the kind of character that you just fall in love with from the beginning and just can't get enough of. I have fallen in love with him and I am now #TeamVane and is now a stalker fan of Shannon Messenger :)
The story starts with Vane, an orphan who survived a tornado ten years before that killed his family. He doesn't remember mu ...more
I have a lot of mixed feelings about this book. I had no general reaction while reading. I didn't hate it, but I wasn't that interested while reading.
The story is told from two perspectives: Vane's and Audra's. They were both okay characters. There were times when Vane would come out as a funny (in a perverted way) character, but sometimes he got on my nerves. At first, I thought Audra was a pretty badass heroine (my favorite kind!) but somewhere in the middle ...more
Let me tell you that I was completely wrong about this book. At first glance, I thought it was another angel book. WRONG! Instead, I am lead into a whole new world that is engaging and dangerous. Full of deadly secrets and lost language, Ms. Messenger wrote a fantastic plot. I love it. It was non-stop action from start to finish, leaving me very little time to catch m ...more
*cue fan girly-ness~
This book took me by total surprise. I mean, I knew it would be good…but I didn’t know it would be THIS EFFIN’ AMAZING! Like holy crap! I felt all the FEELS. The story was hilarious yet filled with somber undertones (umm?? Can you even use that to describe a storyline?! YES! YES, YOU CAN WITH THIS BOOK!) The romance was sexy and believable in an “OMG! JUST MAKE THE EFF OUT, ALREADY!” way. And the characters!? And just...the wind?! And like EVERYTHING ...more
I didn’t really love Audra or Vane, they just irritated me a bit, and they both came across as a bit immature. I thought they might grow on me as the book progressed, but they didn’t.
The storyline in this was just lacking. Even though I had never read anything about Sylphs before, this just felt old, and it really reminded me of books about fallen angels. The whole thing just felt old and tired, and it dragged. I kept rea ...more
