Book review: Every Breath by Ellie Marney

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

Author: Ellie Marney

Publisher: Allen & Unwin

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.

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

Written by Book Boy

I'm a 15-year-old Aussie boy who loves to read. My favourite books include 'Jasper Jones', 'To Kill A Mockingbird' and 'The Lord Of The Rings'. My website contains reviews of books from junior fiction to YA novels and, now, adult reads as well. I only review books I like. My brother writes younger reviews for Book Boy as Book Boy Jr. My book reviews have appeared in The Sunday Telegraph, and on sites such as Children's Books Daily, Creative Kids Tales and Inside A Dog. I am a former member of the #LoveOzYA committee (2018).

    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
