About the book
James Mycroft is an eccentric genius with a passion for forensics. Rachel Watts has just moved to Melbourne from the country. When Mycroft needs help investigating a murder, Rachel finds herself drawn closer to him and unable to resist him.
What I thought
This fast-paced, action packed book was impossible to put down. I really liked the character of Mycroft, as he reminds me of Sherlock Holmes (who is referenced throughout the book), and is a very intriguing character. The story was full of twists and turns, and kept me interested the whole way through.
I would recommend this book for ages 14+ as it contains strong themes and violence. Every Breath is the first book in a trilogy, and I am looking forward to reading book #2, Every Word, and book #3, Every Move.
NB: Author Ellie Marney will release a new book set in the ‘Every’ world on 14 August, 2017. Called ‘No Limits’, it’s definitely aimed at older teens. You can find out more about it here.
