Book Review: ‘Breathless’ by Brigid Kemmerer

This book was received complements of Netgalley for an honest review.

Okay I’m not going to worry to much about spoilers here, although I’ll avoid storyline descriptions, because the big developments are all in the synopsis on the back cover. You have been warned!

This was the best novella I’ve read in quite a while and felt more like the opening chapters of a novel than a short story. (She didn’t make the mistake that I think most novel writers dabbling in novellas make, of trying to fit in too much and reach a concrete ending that satisfies all.)

I can’t believe Hunter’s book is up next: Adam and Nick are my new favourite couple – wow, what a curveball! – in the Brigid Kemmerer universe and I want to spend lots more time with them! (Also Quinn’s new friend looks promising…)

There wasn’t much ‘elemental’ action in this one, the focus was on the emotional stuff which is what I like best.

It was nice to be able to see inside Quinn’s head finally, because we’ve heard alot about her home life and seen her loyalty to her friends in previous books. She might not have a boat load of supernatural enemies, but she has her own demons, and I think it would be really nice to see more of her story in future novels.

Now I can’t wait to see the developments in this book playout in ‘Spirit’. This is one novella NOT TO BE MISSED!
