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's 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 of their families, Audra has just days to help Vane unlock his memories. And as the storm winds gather, they start to realize the greatest danger might not be the warriors coming to destroy them, but the forbidden romance growing between them.
Set amongst the desert airstreams of Coachella Valley in California, LET THE SKY FALL is about two teenagers broken by their pasts, divided by their futures, and bound by love.
I literally only heard about this one on Sunday, but already I'm really intrigued by it, and already can't wait to get my hands on it. It's not actually out for ages - the release date is March 2013. I know, I know - that's ages away, but I definitely think it's worth mentioning now - I reckon it's going to be one of the big YA books of next year.
It kind of reminds me of Rachel Caine's Weather Warden series, but focused more on just two characters, and YA instead of adult fantasy - and I love Rachel's series, so I have a feeling I'm going to adore this as well. I just hope it has something different about it.
I'm just ridiculously excited about this one!
