I received this book for review, about two week ago. I rarely start review copies this early but this book really WAS something. I loved how the blurb didn't give up too much on the story-line but still intrigued me. And I also ADORE the cover. The font fades nicely with the background. I finished it in only two settings, and I loved it!
Rianna is a reader, one of the very few people who can still read in the Union (her country). She has always lived a normal life, all centered around taking care of her younger sister. One day, she meets a mysterious, gorgeous man named Mikel. She is not the type to be fooled, and she knows that Mikel has his secrets. But when her sister is kidnapped, Rianna will do anything to get her back, even if it means trusting Mikel. When she can't help but fall for him...
Through a series of events, Rianna realizes that the Union government, The Front (a group of rebels), and The Zelliotes (another group of rebels) want her for very different reasons. She has to choose which one to side with, the sooner the better. While searching for her sister, Rianna has to balance two men who would do the impossible to win her heart.
Who has kidnapped Rianna's sister? Will Rianna be able to get her back? Why are The Union, The Front, and The Zelliotes so interested in her? And who will finally win her heart? Find out much more when you read the exhilarating, romantic, Word & Breath. A story of trust, love, and well-buried secrets.
I LOVED this book. I have never heard of the author, and I don't know if this is her debut. But if it it, then it's SUPERB! Susannah Noel has a beautiful writing style, it's lyrical, simple, and lovely.
Yeah, her descriptions are wonderful! Although the book was in 3rd person, I enjoyed it VERY much! I was supposed to hate love triangles but this one was so beautiful, that I didn't care anyway. Rianna is a believable character, and I totally loved her. Mikel is the ultimate swoon-worthy guy. Oh my, I get goosebumps when I think of him. Conner is sweet, kind and protective, I liked him even more that Mikel! All of the secondary characters have their own background stories and motives.
The only complain is that it was a little slow at the beginning, but then the pace sped up! If you want an enjoyable, thought-provoking read that will make you think about the true values of a society, then Word and Breath is the ONE. I couldn't put this book down, and I don't regret a moment spend reading it...
