    One thought on “Let the Sky Fall”

    1. It's entirely possible I'm a bit biassed about this, but I think this book is pretty amazing. In fact, I dare say it blew me away (come on, I HAD to make a wind pun!)

    2. Normally I don't do playlists but this book got the damn Adele song stuck in my head, so why not?This is the endHold your breath and count to tenFeel the earth move and then*shakes head and wonders if it’s an incurable condition*Let the SkyfallWhen it crumblesWe will stand tallFace it all, together.At SkyfallOk, 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, Shannon Messenger definitely [...]

    3. I know it sounds lame but the one word that keeps popping out of my mouth while reading the book was: AWESOME because honestly, it really was from the very beginning (actually make that from the cover page) until the end. I thoroughly enjoyed it. For a first book to a series and a debut one even, Let the Sky Fall is pretty good. Everything about it worked really well for me (except maybe for the insta-love although it isn’t exactly insta-love given the characters’ history). The premise is su [...]

    4. Something people might know about me is that I love Avatar: The last Airbender. Like that show is honestly my life and remains one of the best I've ever seen no matter how old I get. I picked this book up because of the cover, but then some reviews mentioned things like this is the book version of Avatar! and I was sold. completely. like I had to read this book I'll read anything if it's like AvatarI see 100% why people think this is like Avatar. But it's no where near as good as Avatar is.Here' [...]

    5. “We were two broken, incomplete people. Now we’re one. No one will ever understand me the way she will. No one will ever understand her the way I will.”i feel like i’m reading a lot of 3 star books lately and it’s pretty sucky, not gonna lie. I’m still not sure how i feel about this just yet, like i don’t love it and i wouldn’t say i hate it, i’m just left somewhere in-between which doesn’t mean this is a bad book at all of our main character is vane, half the time i thought [...]

    6. This review is also available over at my blog.__________________________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 star [...]

    7. Let the Sky Fall combines the swoonworthiness of Melina Marchetta’s On the Jellicoe Road with the action and heroism of Kristin Cashore’s Graceling.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 pa [...]

    8. Vane Weston is my new bookboyfriend, WELCOME TO MY HAREM!!!!!!!!! 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 MomUntitled (Let the Sky Fall #2) Expected publication: 2014 Nooooooooooooooooooooooo

    9. *sigh* I just don't even know where to begin. Let the Sky Fall was a book that I had really high hopes for. I jumped for joy when it landed in my hands and I couldn't wait to read it, unfortunately my expectations were not met and I am left with a weird feeling after finishing the book. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good. The characters were okay, not great. The story was just off enough to make me question the whole thing. This book at least for me falls into that icky category labeled just meh [...]

    10. Even before I read the book the cover had alreadyblew me away .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 started [...]

    11. 4.5 STARS!!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 [...]

    12. Review will be posted closer to release time, but I WOULD SERIOUSLY RECOMMEND PRE-ORDERING the book. ITS AMAZING!!!!! My review: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 [...]

    13. Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger has been a book I have been eagerly anticipating since I first heard about it. I mean, hello, sylphs? How much cooler can you get!? And with it, Shannon Messenger has really spun an intriguing tale all wrapped up in a forbidden romance and a plot that will take the world of fantasy by storm.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 [...]

    14. 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 [...]

    15. Actual rating is 2.5 stars, maybe?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 s [...]

    16. I don't think anyone has ever done so much with so little. Meaning this book runs on air man, it runs on air! Loved it, review to come.

    17. This book was a total surprise for me! I had signed up to read an ARC through Around the World Tours and while I was excited to read it, it wasn't one of the ones I was dying to get my hands on. What a pleasant surprise to find that I couldn't put this book down. It totally blew me away pun intended! :)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 beautiful, [...]

    18. First let me start by giving Around The World ARC Tours a HUGE thank you for allowing me to read this ARC. I have had my eyes on this ARC ever since they posted it on the website. The cover is so simple but eye catching it is of a guy holding a girl in a gust of wind. As you read the book you will see why the cover is so important because it gives us a visual of one of my favorite scenes.Vane is your average teen who lives a very normal life, boring as he calls it but still he lives in the hotte [...]

    19. Marking this as read, but I didn't finish it. I cannot give a complete rating, but by 150 pages in, I realized I didn't like the story that much. The author somehow took an original idea and made it so cliche that I could tell how it would go from the beginning. Special powers, eye-roll-worthy romance, an ambiguous antagonist, The Chosen One Meant to Save the World and Become King Syndrome, etc.I feel bad for not finishing it (mainly because I spend the money to buy it), but I'm not going to suf [...]

    20. Originally reviewed at Nose in a Book.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 [...]

    21. I was really looking forward to this book, but unfortunately it fell short.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 [...]

    22. Could I just say Instant love to the next level?! There was no build up in Vane and Audra relationship at all it was horrible. It was all "he touched my arm and warm tingles shot up through my body like a lightning bolt" um Can I say cheesy? And so unrealistic? So nah don't like this book.To read whole review click link: ourbookworlds/

    24.

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 th [...]

    25. This book is what I’ve come to know as a classic young adult read; filled with action, romance and of course tonnes of teen angst. It had me hooked from the start dismissing the low expectations I’d gathered after reading one too many critical reviews, and I loved it.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 o [...]

    26. Rating 5 starsReaction: 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 [...]
