2.5 StarsLet The Sky Fall is a predictable novel. Even with a cool and unique story idea can't do a lot for it. I knew the outcome (vaguely) after reading the first ten chapters. It's especially predictable with the betrayal and love/hart relationships that go on throughout it. There's an okay amount of world building, I wish there was more though. But the truth about Vane's parents kind of surprised me. I was shocked! Which shocked me because I didn't think anything in the book was going to shock me. Shannon Messenger definitely has some tricks up her sleeves. Romance in a book can sometimes ruin it, which is actually the case with Let the Sky Fall. The novel focuses far too much on the romance that I started to lose interest. Vane starts having dreams about a dark-haired girl, which, many times before, has been done and in a much better way than it is here. Shannon Messenger tries too hard getting the point across that Vane is a sarcastic kind of guy who loves to joke around. As a character, he feels very stiff and forced instead of relaxed with a natural humour.Short chapters instantly makes a book more appealing to me. The book has chapters that mostly consist of four or five maybe even six pages that helps it become an easy read. I also liked that the chapters alternate between Audra's and Vane's POVs to show things through both of their eyes instead of just having on main character. They're also quite different characters and I love Audra's voice and Vane's stupidity. Even though he's not a huge part of the story, I still enjoyed the parts that Gavin, Audra's bird appears in because he's caring and totally evil at the same time. With that being said, I did like the book. Barely, but I liked it. It's a light novel with a few flaws and has a beautiful cover. Recommended for readers that are looking for a creative story idea with somewhat heavy doses of romance and an entertaining bird. That also don't mind some things being mediocre and predictable. I'm excited to see what other tricks Messenger has in stored with the next book in the series, Let the Storms Break.
