"A haboob. It's a massive dust storm that swallows everything in its path."
"Okay, I'm trying to think how that would work, but all I'm hearing is 'boob'."
I still can't move on with the cover change of this trilogy so I decided to finally read this sequel, Let the Storm Break, and I realized I should do this a long time ago because IT. WAS. AMAZING.
Let the Storm Break is a wind that flowed freely to my body. A wind that carried the things I love about a good story. Things that pique my intere ...more
In said review, I bitched ALOT about the characters in the book and how they are ridiculous and how the love is stupid and how the relatively good plot could not save the stupidity of these characters and their stupid, stupid juvenile romance
so when I made the decision to actually read the sequel - Let the Storm Break, despite hearing it involves e...more
As always, it’s still dual point of views. We got Vane, Audra, and the all evil and strengthening Raiden. Vane is still adjusting that he’s not really a human and the next king. I’m just gonna leave it at that. There’s way too many things that happen in this ...more
Let the Storm Break is the second addition to the Sky Fall series. In it, Vane is now officially the king. He is dealing with a lot on his place - which most king's do. Then there's Audra, who is also dealing with a lot. She's finding more information about Raiden which were intriguing. At this point, I was getting a smidge more invested.
At one point, they are reunited which made me happy. Unfortunately, the happy moment didn't last long because they had to kick ...more
Shannon Messenger chooses the prettiest titles and has some amazing covers that go well with her Let the Sky Fall series. And as a reviewer, I try my best (and mostly fail) to never judge a book by its cover and with Let the Storm Break I completely disregarded just how lovey dovey the cover is and hoped for a shit ton of action and great main characters unlike what happened in the first book. Did I get the kick-ass main characters I was hoping for?
When a book is four hundred pages, I expect ...more
Honestly, I heard that it gets better and I wanted it to get better but I like this one less. If I judged it based on only the first half I might have rated it higher.
(view spoiler)[The fight scenes were just as amazing as the ones in the first. Wind fights! They were epic! Sure I rolled my eyes when Vane and Adura stopped to make out every five minutes but still. And the other plot parts were great. But the reason I didn't like this is that the sequel has ...more

Let the Storm Break was a terrific sequel, even better than the first book in the series and most definitely doesn't suffer from any form of middle-book syndrome. It's intense, romantic, action-packed and has a rich and complex world-building.
The characters in this series have grown tremendously from the Let the Sky Fall. Vane, especially, came as a surprise to me in this book. He is no longer that whiny and slightly annoying kid that he was in the first book, but instead, he has grown to accept ...more
It's been a while since I read the first book in this series, and I'm not going to lie, I've completely forgotten everything about it. That being said though, this was fairly easy to slip back into. Audra is gone, Vane is training to be King but he also can't sleep. Raiden, the villain in this story, is sending visions to keep him awake at night. The Gales need Vane to be at his peak but Vane is struggling to keep his mind off anything but Audra who is running from hers ...more
I was very skeptical at the beginning of this book. The way the first quarter of the book was set up, I was sure I could see the plot coming from a mile away and it wasn't something I was interested in. However, it turne ...more
Let The Sky Fall was one of the most unique paranormal books that I read last year and I was so excited to read Let The Storm Break. I think that Let The Storm Break suffers from "middle-book syndrome" and most of the book feels like a bridge to the 3rd book in this series. The plot of Let The Storm Break is unbearably slow-paced at times and it feels as though this book's plot should have been polished better.
I really hoped that Let The ...more
So, Audra isn't here in this book. By choice. Yeah, that makes sense. They are bonded. This supposedly most powerful and meaningful magnetic bond that makes them part of each other. And, they had previously spent every day of their lives together (although unknown to him) since childhood. But, now, yes NOW, s ...more
I also love Vane and Audra's alternating POV! Vane is so funny, his sense of humor is hilarious, especially with his situation. He's supposed to be the King because he's the last Westerly. He's also betrothed to Solana, a sylph with little dresses because her gift is capturing winds. I think it's because of exposing some skin or the lesser cloth makes her capture more winds. I'm not really a fan of her, I don't ...more
My biggest issue was the romance. I've never been a fan of "I've found my soul mate at age seventeen," or "I've fallen in love in less than a week." At one point, Vane and Audra kiss five times during a battle. FIVE TIMES. And apparently the villain was just waiting for them to finish kissing before he attacked.
There were just a lot of little things that annoyed ...more
I can't say I liked any of the characters in this book, I was so bored I wanted to strangle them all. Some things were predictable (view spoiler)[ like the girl vane was betrothed to turning up (hide spoiler)], but mainly I was just bored out of my mind. Most definitely not reading the next book. No way. ...more
Vane has gone from funny and Percy Jackson-like to annoying and immature. Audra has gone from being cool and independent to whiny, and obsessed with Vane. Seriously, they both are extremely clingy.
Tends to write like this.
Point of view.
It's very annoying. ...more
Let the Storms Break picks up almost a month after the end of Let the Sky Fall. Since that story ended things have progressed in an interesting direction. Vane Weston is the last known westerly air elemental (sylph) and now he is the presumed leader of the Gale Force who are desperately trying hard to find a way to defeat the megalomaniac Raiden and his stormers before they destroy humanity. As Vane trains on how to be a guardian, he is also lef ...more
Audra has run off and Vane is left at the hands of the Gale Force and his bond with Audra, that keeps tugging and leaving him restless. The enemy and the Gale Force are coming at them both with powerful weapons and clear and somewhat aggressive aspirations, respectively.
Let The Storm Break is packed with action and has left me wanting me. I can’t wait for the release of the final book this April!
Roughly a month has pa ...more
After reading Let the Sky Fall, I could not have been more happier to get a copy of the next book in the series. I loved Vane and his corny attitude and puppy love for Audra. But after started reading this book, I could not get into it. With four hundred pages, I expected way more and felt really disappointed. And you know what's annoying to hear about a thousand times?
Talk about wind. Literally.
Wind this, Wind that, I can do this with wind, and wind is telling me this. BLAH BLAH BLAH.
And the c ...more
Oh, Ms. Shannon. How you've deceived me with the first book, Let the Sky Fall. From the cover to the synopsis, you had me ache for this second book. So when I took the chance to grab it a bit earlier than the release date, I was totally excited! But poof! Oh ...more
Let the Storm Break was worse than Let the Sky Fall, and that's saying something.
I was really hoping it would be better than book one - even if it was a tiny tiny bit... but it was not to be.
The characters were even more annoying than they were in book one, the pacing was slower, and it was just as dull.
I'm not carrying on with the series, because i can't take any more of it!
