Waiting on Wednesday: Let the Sky Fall

Because we all have something we're waiting for.

Let the Sky Fall
Author: Sharon Messenger
Series: Let the Sky Fall (#1)
Release Date: 5 March 2012

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.

I love the role reversal here -- it's the girl with the power and the responsibility, and it's the boy who falls for her. I don't usually dig the mortal-falls-for-the-immortal story, but this one sounds like it's handling that concept a lot differently.

What do you think?
