Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

Let The Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger (Series #1)
Release Date: March 2013 from Simon Pulse

S u m m a r y :

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.

Reason for waiting:
First of all, LOOK AT THAT COVER!!! Isn't it gorgeous?! Second of all the story involves a tornado. Third of all an air elemental?! This is where my inner gamer nerd-ness comes out because I was a Summoner on FFXI Online (Final Fantasy XI which is an MMORPG) and pretty much the only things I could summon was Carbuncle and an Air Elemental. Which I didn't mind, the Air Elemental's were my favorite! But a guardian air elemental... interesting. I can not wait to read this one!
