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.


So Vane is your average normal 17 year old who lived a basic life. Vane dreams about this black haired girl and sometimes he sees her in real life but never really sees her.

Then one day on a date, he sees her again and this time he chases her out the restaurant. He can’t seem to find her so he gives ups on this dream girl and tires to give Hannah (his date) a chance but before you know it, the wind attacks her and end of story.

That’s until he actually meets his dream girl in his room. Her name is Audra and she’s not really human. She’s a sylph or an air elemental. Here she has to convince Vane that he isn’t human either and a sylph before the enemy gets a hold of them. From here on, they have to unlock his memories and heritage and with an added bonus, falling in love.

It's definitely fast pace. It's told in dual point of views of Vane and Audra. It has forbidden romance, and just an epic YA book.
