Waiting on Wednesday: Let the Wind Rise by Shannon Messenger

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, what's really got my pages in a twist is...

Let the Wind Rise
(Sky Fall #3)
Publication Date: April 26, 2016
Hardcover, 320 pages, Simon Pulse
Genres: YA, Paranormal

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.

My Thoughts

Am I the only one irked at this cover change? The first cover was gorgeous, the second was good, but this one… This one reminds me of a Middle Grade book or something. Why must publishers constantly do this to me? Anywho, I’m looking forward to seeing how Vane and Audra’s story ends.

What book are you waiting on this Wednesday?


  1. I haven't read the previous book, but I hope you enjoy this one! Have a great week!

    1. Thanks, I hope I do too! The first two books were pretty good reads. ;)

  2. Haven't started this series yet. Probably need to soon!
    Check out my WOW

  3. Sorry for the cover change woes, but thanks for being excited for the book anyway.

    1. Oh, hi! Yep. I can't wait to see how Vane and Audra's story ends. And the cover change isn't that big of a deal. In fact, I'll probably end up re-buying the whole series in paperback, just so they'll all match. ;)

  4. I haven't heard of this series but I hope you enjoy this one. I hate it when the cover style gets changed during a series - It messes up my shelves!! Enjoy!

    1. Yeah, it's a little bit of a bummer, but I'll get over it eventually... ;)


I LOVE your comments! And I do read all of them so keep at it! Thanks for visiting!
