Stealing Breath Blog Tour: Review

Deep in the backwoods of North Dakota, twenty-one year old Sarah Ross is searching for a missing child when she is attacked by a glowing-eyed, transparent... creature. Sarah survives, destroying the monster by using mysterious abilities she didn't even know she had. Bloody and bruised, Sarah flees the scene and runs directly into Evan Valente, a handsome, charismatic stranger who helps her back to safety. But what is Evan doing out in the forest at five in the morning? Turning to a healer, Sarah is shocked to learn her eyes bear the mark of the Indigo Child-an evolved human with the ability to feel the emotions of others. But her indigo aura also makes her an easy target for those who wish to consume her powerful essence. Soon, Sarah is falling deeply in love with Evan and wants nothing more than to follow her heart and trust that he is the man he says he is. But she can't ignore the lingering feeling that Evan is hiding a terrible secret. The deeper she digs, the more danger she faces, leading her on a course that will force her to face the darkest, innermost parts of her soul.

Stealing Breath opens with Sarah searching woods because she thought she heard the Jessica, a missing child, calling out for help. She's attacked by a strange ghost like creature but manages to escape. Evan happens to be wandering the woods too and comes to the rescue.

This book was decent enough, it just didn't really catch my attention. I liked Sarah and amber and Kate and Evan and paulette. Stefano, I wanted to hate but just couldn't. I feel sorry for him and kind of understand why he is how he is, a sick twisted man. It seems that he has never been shown love, not by his father, not by his mother. Evan on the other hand was shown love by his mother, who protected from the time of his birth. Thinking abut that makes me want to read stetano's POV, especially of his and Evan's childhood.

I also didn't like all of the foreign words she used. I couldn't keep straight what meant what. I felt like she never fully said what each word meant, leaving the reader drawing a blank.

Stealing breath was a decent read involving native American and Italian witches. it's definafy worth your time if that's what you like.
