Every Stolen Breath by Kimberly Gabriel @tlcbooktours #bookreview

Happy Tuesday all!

Are you ever too old for YA? This was an intense story that is labeled as young adult but will definitely appeal to people of all ages!

My Thoughts

Kimberly Gabriel’s debut was tense and riveting. An addictive YA thriller based on true events. Two years ago Lia’s father was killed by a “swarm“ of wild organized teenagers and he was not the only victim of the swarm. since The attack Lia has suffered from PTSD that only aggravates her asthma and anxiety. Lia might be physically weak, but she is strong in spirit and determined to find out who killed her father two years ago. Suspicious of everybody, but in need of help who can she trust? A reporter? A former swarm member? Or fellow classmates?

WOW was not expecting this book to be so remarkable! Fast paced, action packed, and completely absorbing from first page to last. Lia was a fantastic character and completely Drew me into the story. I was right there with her trying to figure out who the guilty parties were and who she could trust. There is a bit of a romance in this book, but it definitely took the backseat to the Mystery. I can’t even imagine being killed by a swarm of angry teenagers so scary and what made it scarier is that this actually happened in Chicago in 2011. I am glad to see that there are more and more young adult mystery/thriller’s being released, but I have to say this book is perfect for readers of all ages. A wild ride that will keep you guessing until the bitter end. Looking forward to what is next from Miss Gabriel.

About the Book

The Swarm is unrecognizable, untraceable, and unpredictable—random attacks on the streets of Chicago by a mob of crazed teens that leaves death in its wake. It’s been two years since the last attack, but Lia Finch has found clues that reveal the Swarm is ready to claim a new victim.

Lia is the only one still pursuing her father’s killers, two years after attorney Steven Finch’s murder by the Swarm. Devastated and desperate for answers, Lia will do anything to uncover the reasons behind his death and to stop someone else from being struck down. But due to debilitating asthma and PTSD that leaves her with a tenuous hold on reality, Lia is the last person to mount a crusade on her own.

After a close encounter with the Swarm puts Lia on their radar, she teams up with a teen hacker, a reporter, and a mysterious stranger who knows firsthand how the mob works. Together, they work to uncover the master puppeteer behind the group. Though if Lia and her network don’t stop the person pulling the strings—and fast—Lia may end up the next target.

Inspired by the real-life “flash mob” violence that struck Chicago in 2011, Every Stolen Breath by debut author Kimberly Gabriel is a fast-paced and immersive thriller that shows just how hard one girl will fight back, knowing any breath might be her last.
