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.
My Review:From page one I was captured in this book, caught up in the whirlwind of emotions, characters, and story. Shannon Messenger has a gift for weaving a tale that keeps you reading into the wee hours of morning. My first thought when I finished the book was 'Oh the feels!" and it is the best way to describe this book.
I was so caught up in both Vane's and Audra's POV's and couldn't help but feel for both of them, understanding where each of them were coming from.
I look forward to more of Shannon's work, that is for sure!
*And yes, I had to put a wind joke in there somewhere. :)
