Let the Storm Break by Shannon Messenger Review

Let the Storm Break (Let the Sky Fall, #2)
Reading Level: Young Adult
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Source: Won
Second book in the Let the Sky Fall series
Vane Weston is haunted. By the searing pull of his bond to Audra. By the lies he’s told to cover for her disappearance. By the treacherous winds that slip into his mind, trying to trap him in his worst nightmares. And as his enemies grow stronger, Vane doesn’t know how much longer he can last on his own.
But Audra’s still running. From her past. From the Gales. Even from Vane, who she doesn’t believe she deserves. And the farther she flees, the more danger she finds. She possesses the secret power her enemy craves, and protecting it might be more than she can handle—especially when she discovers Raiden’s newest weapon.
With the Gale Force weakened by recent attacks, and the power of four collapsing, Vane and Audra are forced to make a choice: keep trusting the failing winds, or turn to the people who’ve betrayed them before. But even if they survive the storms sent to destroy them, will they have anything left to hold on to?

I may not have enjoyed this as much as the first book but it was still amazing. I loved getting to see some things we didn't get to see in the first book. 

This continues Vane's story. Audra is gone. He is forced to continue his training and take up his role as king. While Vane struggles with what's expected of him, Audra uncovers some dangerous information. 

We got to see a different side of Vane in this. He was very strong. He stood up for himself but still took the advice offered to him. I liked that he was honest with the people he cared about. Even though he's become king and has all this super cool power, he still cares about his human life and family. I hated that Audra spent so much of the story away from Vane but I understand why. It was cool seeing her learn so much about Westerly. She is quite the force to be reckoned with. Gus and Solona made awesome secondary characters. I can't wait to see more of them in the next book. 

This was a very action packed story. There was always something going on. I loved getting to learn lots of new things about the world. I read this in one sitting. I couldn't put it down. I definitely didn't see some of those twists coming. This didn't lack in the story department at all. Or in any department. Overall I thought this was a fabulous sequel. The wait for the third book might just kill me.
