Shannon Messenger Synopsis: Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger is the first book in the Sky Fall series. Seventeen-year-old Vane Weston doesn’t know how he survived the category five tornado that killed his parents. And he has no idea whether or not the gorgeous dark-haired girl who’s been in his dreams every night since the storm is real. But he hopes she is. Seventeen-year-old Audra is a sylph, an air elemental. She walks on the wind, can translate its alluring songs, and can even coax it into a weapon with a simple string of commands. She’s also a guardian – Vane’s guardian – and has sworn an oath to protect Vane, even if it means sacrificing her own life. When a hasty mistake reveals their location to the enemy who murdered both of their families, Audra’s forced to help Vane remember who he is. He has a power to claim – the secret language of the West Wind, which only he can understand. But unlocking his heritage will also unlock the memory Audra needs him to forget. And as the storm bears down on them, she starts to realize the greatest danger might not be the warriors coming to destroy them – but the forbidden romance that’s grown between them.
