BROKEN BY THEIR PASTS. DIVIDED BY THEIR FUTURES. BOUND BY LOVE.
First reaction: *fangirl squeals* and “NOOOOOOO” to the ending.
I think this has been the second book that got me so absorbed. It blew me away~ The first one was Starters, and I HAVE TO WAIT for the release of the next books for both Starters and Let the Sky Fall. (sobs) Must.get.next.books. (gets restless)
Please note that it might be easier to understand this if you have read the book (SO GRAB A COPY! NOW! DON’T THINK TWICE! NOW!) This has a perfect mixture of romance, comedy, lovable characters, good plot, and a whole new idea of mythical creatures (or maybe I just don’t know much about sylphs, but it’s better than all the vampires and werewolves or whatever). I like how the winds have their own voices, moods, characteristics, and languages specific to each one of them. (For those who haven’t read it and I don’t why you haven’t because you must: Yes, there are different kinds of wind.)
The book just gripped me. I was BOUND to it. (nudge nudge wink wink) I love the writing style. It was wonderfully descriptive and very modern. It was also told in the points of view of the two main characters, which I absolutely love because Vane is absolutely funny and abso-fucking-lutely adorable, and Audra puts you into perspective about the world of the sylphs and everything that has been happening. Some details weren’t very elaborate though, which may be expounded more in the following books. (I hope so anyway. More to look forward to!) I don’t really have enough words to express my love for this book, but I’m guessing you’re getting a whiff of that from all my comments and side comments.
I like how Audra is the strong and brave character, who is just also a girl deep down. Vane is also a girl deep down. (just kidding) I bet he shrieks like one though. I like how Vane makes everything himself (i.e. Vane puddle, Vane-splat, Vane pretzel, Vane etc. – I highlighted all the terms in my copy. You should go look out for them) (Huh. Vane. Vain. I wouldn’t mind having anything Vane though) I love his voice the best. I like his demeanor, his secret thoughts (which definitely makes me laugh), his determination, his love (don’t mind the cheese), and just everything.
I have this theory that Shannon Messenger is a sylph, and she send winds to me to get me so attracted to Let the Sky Fall. (just kidding) But the effects were all the same. When I first got wind of this book, I instantly wanted to read it! I’m not a big fan of orange, but the cover is simply wonderful. I love it. Even the book itself is wonderful without the cover jacket. It’s very simple, yet elegant. I’m not one for buying hardbound books (because they’re expensive, large, and VERY heavy), but this one is definitely worth it. It’s that beautiful! The wait and the money I spent on Let the Sky Fall was definitely worth it! It’s high up on my favorites list!
This book is filled with action, fantasy, comedy and romance, with an adorable guy to boot. So that’s that. For the last time, READ LET THE SKY FALL. And when you do and liked it, send me a message and we can fangirl together.
