Publisher: Simon Pulse

From Goodreads:

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.


Why I Can’t Wait: Excuse me for a minute while I stare at the cover . . . Not only is the cover unbelievably gorgeous, but the premise is outstanding and unique and I can’t wait to get my hands on it! (There might be cover petting when I do, jsjs) Elements are something new for me lately but an aspect that is so fresh and exciting! And did I also see two of my favorite words in that synopsis? FORBIDDEN ROMANCE, baby!

    Oh goodness, forbidden romance can be such a hit and miss with me. I do love the title/cover of this book, though. So emotional.

    This does sound fresh and original! I’m so intrigued by twisters and I love the sound of powers revolving around the elements. Great pick and thanks for visiting The Readers Den. 🙂

    Haha! So glad to hear I am not the only one who pets covers of books! I love the cover, too, and can’t wait to read this book. I also want to read Shannon Messenger’s MG novel Keeper of the Lost Cities.

    Thanks for sharing!
