Let the Sky Fall

LET THE SKY FALL 
(Sky fall Book 1)

A broken past and a divided future can’t stop the electric connection of two teens in this “fast-paced, fantasy-romance piece” (VOYA).

Seventeen-year-old Vane Weston has no idea how he survived the category five tornado that killed his parents. And he has no idea if the beautiful, dark-haired girl who’s swept through 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 at all costs. 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 their greatest danger is not the warriors coming to destroy them—but the forbidden romance that’s grown between them.

LET THE STORM BREAK 
(Sky Fall Book 2)

(Warning: Description contains *slight* spoilers for LET THE SKY FALL)

Whirlwind romance and breathtaking action continues in the sequel to Let the Sky Fall, which Becca Fitzpatrick called “charged and romantic.” 

Vane Weston is haunted. By the searing pull of his bond to Audra. By the lies he’s told to cover for her disappearance. By the treacherous winds that slip into his mind, trying to trap him in his worst nightmares. And as his enemies grow stronger, Vane doesn’t know how much longer he can last on his own.

But Audra’s still running. From her past. From the Gales. Even from Vane, who she doesn’t believe she deserves. And the farther she flees, the more danger she finds. She possesses the secret power her enemy craves, and protecting it might be more than she can handle—especially when she discovers Raiden’s newest weapon.

With the Gale Force weakened by recent attacks, and the power of four collapsing, Vane and Audra are forced to make a choice: keep trusting the failing winds, or turn to the people who’ve betrayed them before. But even if they survive the storm sent to destroy them, will they have anything left to hold on to?

LET THE WIND RISE 
(Sky Fall Book 3)

The breathtaking action and whirlwind adventure build to a climax in this thrilling conclusion to the “remarkably unpredictable” (BCCB) Sky Fall trilogy from the bestselling author of the Keeper of the Lost Cities series.

Vane Weston is ready for battle. Against Raiden’s army. Against the slowly corrupting Gale Force. Even against his own peaceful nature as a Westerly. He’ll do whatever it takes, including storming Raiden’s icy fortress with the three people he trusts the least. Anything to bring Audra home safely.

But Audra won’t wait for someone to rescue her. She has Gus—the guardian she was captured with. And she has a strange “guide” left behind by the one prisoner who managed to escape Raiden. The wind is also rising to her side, rallying against their common enemy. When the forces align, Audra makes her play—but Raiden is ready.

Freedom has never held such an impossible price, and both groups know the sacrifices will be great. But Vane and Audra started this fight together. They’ll end it the same way.

A Spring 2013 Indie Next List Pick for Teens!

"Charged and romantic—a whirlwind of a love story.” ~ Becca Fitzpatrick, New York Times bestselling author of the Hush, Hush Saga
"Funny, fast-paced, and slyly romantic, Shannon Messenger's YA debut dazzles.”—Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of the Paranormalcy Series 
"Thrilling, romantic, and funny—I loved every minute of it.” ~ Sarah Wylie, author of All These Lives   
"Characterization elevates this romance.” ~ Kirkus Reviews
"In Messenger’s refreshingly clean paranormal debut . . . unusual paranormal entities and strong writing should interest genre readers in search of a fresh new series." ~ Booklist Reviews
"Fans of the Harry Potter and Twilight series, mythology, and especially high fantasy will enjoy this fast-paced, fantasy-romance piece." ~ VOYA
"An interesting reversal of the usual magical girl who doesn’t know she’s special paranormal trope, and sylphs are a nice change from vampires, werewolves, and fairies . . . Recommend it to Twilight fans" ~ School Library Journal

Praise for LET THE STORM BREAK:

"Witty, romantic and filled with personality" ~ Kirkus


"New directions, plot twists, and dangers seemingly at every turn keep the pace lively ... ensures eager anticipation for the next book." ~ Booklist




Praise for LET THE WIND RISE:

"The conclusion to this very original fantasy trilogy is stronger than the first two installments, with nonstop action and believable teenage sarcasm, which takes the edge off the brutal reality of Audra and Vane’s highly emotional romance and quest. A good match for fans of Claudia Gray’s Firebird series." ~ RT Book Reviews

    3. I want to be a writer too! People always want fame and money, but I just want promote to just read my books and stop judging. Anyway I pretty much want to read all your books Shannon, but let the sky fall its like a romance so there is going to be a lot of persuading to my parents, I'm going to be thirteen and i guess i might have to wait 1 or 3 more years but in the meantime i love your amazing keeper of the lost cities books! By the way, thank you for letting us comment anonymous because i probably wouldn't be able to comment right now!

So...You're just awesome.
