Let the Sky Fall

Let the Sky Fall - Shannon Messenger More of my reviews at Secrets of Lost Words.Rating: BLet me start off by saying that I had great expectations for this book. Like, really really high ones since Keepers of the Lost Cities is one of my favorite books of 2012. Now my hope was totally crushed but it wasn't exactly what I wanted either.I really liked Audra and Vane; they were interest and good character. I didn't like Audra because of her personality but I don't think I can hold it against her because her past molded her into who she is now.I also liked the sylph; it's pretty original. The sylph are wind spirits and I've never read anything about them before. I wish there were more books on them and for that, I applaud the author for this book :) The plot was also really engaging and kept me glued to it until I finished it. What I didn't like was that I felt like everything was too easy. Like, it was too easy for Vane to accomplish the breakthroughs. I thought it should be a lot harder.. I don't know... He did all three of them in one moment and I'm just like, What? Shouldn't it be harder like in Avatar the Last Airbender? Another thing I didn't like was the complications. I feel like this book is more focused on Audra and Vane's romantic / forbidden relationship than the actual problems with the sylph society. Sure, they were all about training and preventing thousands of people from dying but there wasn't enough action to support that whole thing.In conclusion, I liked it but it fell beneath my expectations. Even though I didn't enjoy this as much as I thought I would, the ending still made me want the sequel really badly. Hopefully the second will have an equal balance of romance and action then it'll be as good as it can be :D
