Let the Storm Break (Sky Fall, #2) – Review

Let the Storm Break (Sky Fall, #2)Let the Storm Break by Shannon Messenger
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book breaks my heart. The ending makes my whole body ache and I’m not even sure if I should be relieved or grieving. The first part of the book leaves the Audra-Vane-together urge in the reader, at least that’s what I felt. I dislike the distance that Audra takes from Vane and even hate her for it. But I can comprehend, maybe in a world like this, with responsibilities this big and the life changing events she (including Vane) just undergone in the first book I would have taken I break too. I love the way Messenger planned the reunion. The romantic moment (but too short) they had alone. The last part of the book is a whirlpool of events; broken Winds, dead Gales, endangered Valley, weak Vane, Gus and Audra falling to Raiden and the most reader-breaking part; Audra breaks her bond. Messenger gives us a lot, like really a lot to process and at some point you even lost yourself along with Audra’s trace that Vane fails to feel.

For those reading this review, this book it definitely a go for it and a re-read-it-a-hundred-times-later type.

Let the Sky Fall (Sky Fall, #1)Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is oh my god!!! So good. I can’t find the word to express what I feel after I’ve read the first book of the Sky Fall series. It left in an eerie way, had to give myself the time to process whatever fact my brain couldn’t grasp. My senses merged and stayed alert throughout the whole reading process. I felt like being of part it, not as the omnipresent third-party but as Vane himself and sometimes as Audra too. I felt there urge, love, their grow and every emotion it conveyed. Thank you Shannon Messenger.

Title: Distant

Distant sky…
Far Above us so gray
Blurs life and leads astray

Distant so the future seems
Like the crepuscule lucent but dims.
A long way path that ain’t trim

Distant but yet so close
To the touch, but you feel it lose
Thus, are hard times, giving no lapse

Distant and alone they let feel
Entice you believe In no heal
So let me take your hand and lead

So you know I’m not distant from you
A faithful friend to help you through
An ally vowing to be true

From distant gray to blue
Leaving darkness no clue
Of the happiness we pursue

You’re Strong

Title: You’re Strong

Oh you!
Leaving my heart in awe
Mending your path through a rough way
How you’d manage you did thought
But little did you know
How strong is that heart of yours
How its beauty is incomparable fairness
Solid as rock you stay still
As a stronghold, established so firmly
So trial-proof

Winds blows,
Break others down
Tear others apart
But your sweet tender smile is essence for their wounds
There where they tumble, you my little one stay still
There where they feel low, you comfort by your mere presence

Oh heart!
How difficult I know it is to stay firm
To hold on tight to the hope in horizon
As such the moon light In the gray sky so dim
But forget not, as real is the moon
Hope do reside
So touchable, so close, so bright
So keep your head up and stay strong
Eyes forward and ever sparkling
For my heart is forever with you…
Stronger together…

Title: A Brother’s Promise

To the world’s loveliest little sister,
These words to you belong
Keep them dear
For they are evidence of my love

For whatever you’ve been through
Remember that alone you are not anymore
For apart from a God’s strong hand,
I am by your side
Hoping to guard you safe
Holding you dear

Whenever you feel empty,
I’ll hold your hand
To help you fill the blank pages of your life
With happiness and love
And my reward shall be your sweet tender smile

I’ll be the gatherer of your tears
And your sorrows… I’ll take upon my shoulders
For oh my little sister,
thee are so too precious

So please promise me,
That these words will be your everlasting hope
Living in your heart forever
Alike a secret lover
