Review: Every Breath

Every Breath by Ellie Marney reviewed by a kid book bloggerTitle: Every Breath

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

Buy Every Breath at Booktopia.

    Hey there Bookboy, great review. I was wondering how much mushy romance is in this book? My teen doesn’t like too much mushy stuff!

      Hi Hanadi, there’s a little bit, but not too much. It’s definitely not a romance novel! BB
