From Booklist

Vane and Audra and an intriguing cast of secondary characters return in Messenger’s solid second book in the Sky Fall series. While wrestling with the realization that he is not human—and will someday be a king—Vane also attempts to juggle his ongoing attraction to Audra, as well as figure out how to defeat a host of enemies determined either to use him for their own nefarious ends or simply eliminate him. Audra also struggles with her attraction to Vane, albeit from a distance, as she flees her own past and tries to come to grips with her current reality and potential future. Strikingly evil Raiden and multinuanced Solana stir the plot aplenty with their own motives and actions, all of which tangle together in a satisfying story. New directions, plot twists, and dangers seemingly at every turn keep the pace lively. A cliff-hanger ending may frustrate some readers, but it ensures eager anticipation for the next book. Grades 7-12. --Julie Trevelyan

Review

First of all, if you loved Let the Sky Fall, you're really going to love this one because guess what? This book is even better! The things that I liked about the first book were still there and there were things I didn't care much for that were done so much better in this one.

I'll start with Vane. I didn't like him that much before, but now, I think he's an awesome character. He sure has grown. He grew a lot in book one, but in book two, he grew even more. He became more . . . mature. More determined. More responsible.

Audra, too, changed a lot in both books. She still had many things to work on—of them being becoming more secure in her relationship with Vane—but she makes huge sacrifices in Let the Storm Break. I like her much more than I did before.

The wind tricks, the danger, the tricks--they made this book really cool to read. The things the windwalkers do . . . they're huge. There were bigger fights. There were badder characters (Raiden finally made an appearance). There were harsher twists. Speaking of . . . why do authors have to be so mean? There were some pretty painful twists towards the end, and one in particular is going to make the wait for the next book in the series torturous.

Overall, Let the Storm Break was a very good sequel. I felt like the characters were much better and the action was larger. I really liked how it ended—a bit of a cliffhanger—and the twists kept me engaged.

I definitely recommend reading this series if you haven't started it already. It's a very cool and different series, and I'm looking forward to reading the next installment!Source: I received an e-arc of this book from the publisher through Edelweiss in return for an honest review.

So this book was AMAZING! Vane and Audra are now my FAV YA Couple. This book goes well beyond the book2s that I have come to know. And blows the plot, story, and characters, out of the sky. I will will be crying until I can read book three!!
This book picks up where book one ended. And the ending left me in shock. I hate cliffhangers lol. This books dual POV was so good! I really have to praise the author on her work. The POV changes with each chapter. One with Vane one with Audra and it works so well. It think other authors could learn a thing or two from these two books. The only issue I had was that Vane a lot of times reads like a girl or a over hormonal boy. But as I really got into the book I started to love it!! Vane isnt scared to take a helping hand instead of trying to do it on his own (unlike a lot of other teen boys in other books) He also isn't afraid to stand up for those he loves etc. I think he really came into his own in Let the Storm Break. Audra just keeps getting better. I love her character. And I would have to say that if I was a gale and I had to choose between Solana (sorry if thats spelled wrong) and Aurda I would choose Audra just for the fact that she is a fighter. I know that Solona isn't just a pretty face but, my vote would go to Audra because she is strong and would never let the fourth language fall into the wrong hands. As you will see in this book.

This series has to be one of the best and most unique paranormal stories I've read in some time. Its fast paced and never lets you put the book down. It will make you laugh, cry, and scream, o ya! This one doesn't have a Love Triangle. Although maybe the author was trying to add one with Solana it just isn't going anywhere as Vane is diehard in love with Audra.

This review is based upon a free ARC copy, which in no way affected my opinion.

Let the Storms Break is the second book of Shannon Messenger’s Sky Fall series. The first book is Let the Sky Fall.

I’m a big fan of “elemental” type stories, although these are a bit different. In fact, I’ve never read anything that handles sylphs (air spirits) in anything but a passing manner. Not only are these beings able to manipulate how the wind blows, but each is part of one of four families representing Easterly, Northerly, Southerly, and Westerly winds. They are able to call the winds and weave them into shields and weapons as well as facilitate flight.

In the first book, Vane Weston discovers he’s a sylph and has been protected by Audra from those that seek to capture Vane since he’s the last Westerly and has been protected as the sylph king because of this. His enemies want the power of all four winds. Vane might be in love with Audra, but he has very little interest in being king or learning to fight.

Book two continues after Audra’s mother betrays all the good winds and the battle nears with the evil Raiden and his follower. Vane learns more of his strength while fighting to stay true to himself and save his adopted family and friends. This book is non-stop action and Messenger does an awesome job weaving sylph powers to unique weapons, both offensive and defensive. We meet new sylphs and learn more about the enemy Raiden who wants not only the power of the four winds, but to control and break all others through pain.

One thing I particularly enjoyed in this book was Vane’s voice. Perfect teenager being pushed to do something he doesn’t agree with. But he still managed to learn and grow and make good decisions.
